Spotting, could it be a sign of pregnancy?

Patient: I had sex a week ago and just started spotting today. We used a condom and im terrifed i might be pregnant. It was both of ours first time. Is there a chance i could be pregnant?

 

 

Doctor: It seems unlikely that you may be pregnant taking into consideration that your partner was wearing a condom. However to confirm pregnancy, you will need to do a home pregnancy test. It is best if the test is done around 2 weeks after sexual intercourse.
