Question: Period Started and after a day it stopped completly


 youandme - Sun Feb 28, 2010 4:21 am

HI,
I was suppose to have period on 15th, but it started on 22. On 22 i had period for a day and then it stopped. i never had this experience before. I even have a boil on my vegina, could this be the reason? I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend after the period has stopped on 23rd night. Please help me on this issue.....

User avatar Hello,
It is hard to say whether there is a pregnancy concern because it depends on when you ovulated in connection with the unprotected sex. A single day of bleeding, if abnormal for you, may not have been an actual period. But, a woman's hormones fluctuate considerably throughout the cycle and it is possible it was a period, though very light.

Had you been sexually active before this "period"? If so, it is possible you conceived and had some implantation bleeding. You could take a home pregnancy test to see if that is the case. If you did not have sex until after that time, you may not be able to determine for a while, but if you had a period with that bleeding, chances are that you did not ovulate at that time and would not have become pregnant..

I'm sorry I can't be more help but the boil would not affect your period at all. I would recommend you examine possible methods of birth control that you would be comfortable using.

Best wishes.
