spotting and cramping after my period am I pregnant??

I got my period May 24th and it lasted till the 28th. I had unprotected sex on the 29th, and today May 31 I went to the bathroom and wiped myself and there was light kinda brownish blood then I noticed that I had spots on my underwear the same color. Then after that I started cramping like my period was about to begin all over again. So I was wondering can this be signs of pregnancy?? cause this didn't happen in my first pregnancy.

I think it's too early to be able to tell if you are pregnant or not. So I don't think you are pregnant.

Some pregnancy tests--in family planning clinics and doctors offices, can theoretically test for pregnancy 7-10 days after sex/ovulation. The bleeding you speak of could have been implantation except that usually happens i think 7 days after sex.
Monicaandreina, it's rare but possible to get pregnant while on your period, for most women ovulation happens midway through your cycle, but anything is possible ;) Take a test when your period is supposed to start.  I hope you both get the answers that you are hoping for!

This doesn't mean you are pregnant. This happens to me all the time after my period. It is just your body getting everything out. Usually if you are pregnant, you won't get spotting/cramping until a week or two after you had unprotected sex. You wouldn't have gotten spotting this soon. Also the first day after your period you are not fertile.

Hope this helps :)

it could be anything really or nothing at all. likely left over blood considering you just got off your period

i had my period a almost two weeks ago, I had sex during my period and after, now two weeks later I started to bleed after sex and when i pee....sometimes it will just spot during  the day.  I am also very bloated and my boobs hurt and look bigger....what do you think???

does it hurt when you pee? cause if your bleeding when you pee, this usually means you have a urinary tract infection (uti). This usually happens due to sex when the penis goes in bacteria builds up and causes this. You should pee after you have sex to wash it out. Its a simple fix and nothing serious. you should go to the doctor and get a prescription or the pain will get worse.

me and my fiance have been trying to get pregnant for the past month. Ok. here is the deal, i was on the patch and one night he decided to take the patch off so he could have a better chance of me getting pregnant, we had been having sex morning and night before the patch was off and after.. Now i did have my period a week early because he took my patch off.. we even had sex then.. Now i have been cramping so bad in my lower abdomen and back, bloated, nausea, and light headaches, soreness in my abdomen... Does that mean i am pregnant or just ovulating because the patch was taken off a week early.  How long should i wait to find out.. Its been over two weeks before i took the patch off and its been over two weeks since i took the patch off.. Its been  now two weeks since the bleeding started, but its hasnt been two weeks since we had sex last.. so what should i do?

I had my period this month the 1st through the 5th.  On the 8th I started spotting bright red blood.  My period this month was really irregular for me.  I didn't know if this could mean I was pregnant and the spotting was implantation bleeding.  If so If I took a test now would it show if I was pregnant or not.  Thanks for reading and your help

#1 stop having sex. You're 16. Life is long. Much longer if you have a baby at your age. #2 If you had your period, it is normal for you to have a brown color towards the end of your period. #3 Go to the doctor and find out for sure if you are pregnant if you haven't already. The stress of worrying about it is likely to keep your body from starting your next period on time. Also, ask your doctor to explain your menstrual cycle to you and if you aren't planning on not having sex, ask about birth control options. #4 If you can't talk to your mom, find another adult to confide in and ask questions. It is important to understand these things so you don't make a big mistake that you will regret. Hope this helps, and regardless of what happens, smile.
