I had unprotected sex over a week or two ago


Q: I had unprotected sex over a week or two ago and I was a day late when I found blood on my toilet tissue and I thought I was staring my period so I put a tampon in and got a little blood so I changed it the next time I checked it it was a little brown. I have been really stressed lately but I don't know if I'm stressed or could be pregnant but it's to early to take a at home pregnancy test. Please help!

Symptoms:  Nausea, missed period/light bleeding , moody, stressed

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
The bleeding could be your period itself, the pregnancy test can be false negative so early, even if you were pregnant. It is better to get a blood test or an ultrasound done for confirmation.

Hope this was helpful,
