Two weeks ago today, I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. We are almost positive that he did not ejaculate inside of me. After we had sex, I started bleeding brown blood four three and a half days. I've taken two pregnancy tests that both show up negative but my period is late. I was wondering if I had bruised my cervix and if that could cause my period to be late... HELP

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The bleeding during or after intercourse is not normal and suggest chances of infections, internal injury/trauma, cervical erosion or dysplastic changes, uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps, endometritis, ovarian cysts, hormonal derangements affecting the bleeding pattern, bleeding or clotting disorders, anemia etc. If you have been sexually active without protection (and if you are not on any form of birth control measures), then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. The pullout/withdrawal method of contraception is associated with highest failures (as pre-cum/ pre-ejaculatory fluid is known to contain sperms and no man can be 100% sure that pre-cum/ pre-ejaculatory fluid did not leak out during vaginal penetration). Wait and watch for your periods. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop any new symptoms, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation would be needed to look for the underlying cause for your symptoms. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.

Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum

First of all let me explain that if the cervix is bruised that cannnot delay the period.Unprotected intercourse carries a high risk and can always lead to pregnancy as precum even contains sperms.The bleeding which you had might be due to ovulation or even a mild injury if rough intercourse was performed.
You can get a pelvic examination and Blood test done for pregnancy determination.Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.
Take care!
