Spotting after period and Sex


Q: I had unprotected sex on two days after my period had ended and when I douched. The next morning I started spotting. I have now ben spotting for 10 days. We both don't have anySTD's. Is there a possible pregnancy? What could be wrong?


A:   The possibility of pregnancy is there any time a pre menopausal women has unprotected sex and can easily be determined by a home pregnancy test - some of the better tests on the market are able to determine pregnancy as close as seven days after conception.
Other causes of spotting or irregular cycles include medications, anemia, vitamin deficiency, thyroid disease, pituitary disease, uterine fibroids or mass and of course STD's.
If you see your doctor, he will likely perform the above tests.
