Protected sex during ovulation, noticed pinkish red spotting

Patient

Q: Protected sex during ovulation, noticed pinkish red spotting 4 days after then now I stuck a qtip in my vagina and it came out light brown. Experiencing lower back pain....period isnt due for another week. Could this be a sign of pregnancy?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

There could be a mild chance of pregnancy considering the symptoms that you have mentioned.
Kindly do a beta hcg blood test to rule out the pregnancy. If negative, await your cycles as this can be a part of premenstrual syndrome.
If you don't get the cycles even after a week, you will have to repeat the pregnancy test and consult the gynecologist for further management.

Hope this helped.
Regards
