I had unprotected sex for the first time. Following that episode, I didn't get my period. Then one day, out of the blue, I got it …but it only lasted for one day. Is there a chance that I am pregnant? Slipped Up Sloane

Dear Slipped Up Sloane
Have you taken a pregnancy test? If you’ve missed a period, then you definitely need to take one immediately. If it’s positive, then you must go and see a physician right away. It is common to spot, or experience a short, scant period throughout the implantation stage. Implantation is when the egg and sperm meet and implant themselves into your uterus. Are you having any of the following symptoms?
- Breasts that are sore, tender or swollen
- You feel sick to your stomach or you are vomiting
- Fatigue – feeling more tired than usual
- The need to urinate more often than usual
- Mood swings
If so, please consult the advice of a physician. This is one problem that isn’t going to work itself out. Look at how scared you right now. Think about having a baby for a little while. Maybe you should rethink your reasons for having unprotected sex. You are taking a big risk with the responsibilities that go along with all of this.
