Spotting
Spotting is when you are bleeding a little. Like had a spot of blood on your underwear. Im not sure what implantation bleeding is. If your spotting during pregnancy you need to contact you doctor.

Implantation bleeding occurs in the beginning of your pregnancy. Usually around the time when you should get your period.

This means that your baby is implanting itself in your uterus and some women have light bleeding (it is usually dark brown blood) the docs that I went to referred to this as "old blood"

this can be referred to as spotting also
always see a doctor if you are spotting or bleeding and you are pregnant

Highly unlikely that your pregnant. The bleeding in normal after your first time so please dont freak out. Basically by taking your virginity he broke through some skin inside of you and you are supposed to bleed from that. Your stomach is hurting because your scared which is understandable. And since he didnt cum in you its unlikely that your pregnant. But it is possible to get pregnant from precum, so when your due for your next period if you dont get it, go to the store and buy a pregnancy test. Make sure you follow the directions to get an accurate result. And not to sound like a parent, but if your going to give a guy sometime special like your virginity try to make it special. Respect yourself, you deserve better and dont let him forget it. :) hope this helped

After I took it i realized it'd had expired. On tueday I took another plan b(two pills) with in 36 to 48 hours. A few days later(the 3rd) I got what looked like my perid but it started as old blood and went to new blood. It lasted til today(the 7th of december). I took a pregnancy test today and it came ou negative. Is it possible this is accurate you suppose?

I have a question. I had some unusual feelings lately and I am thinking I might be pregnant but I got my periods today. My periods normally starts every 3rd week of the month. Can I consider it spotting? Am I pregnant or its just I got an early normal menstruation? I hope you can help me. Thank you.

Please Help!!:,(
Please help!
Me and my Bf were fooling around. We noticed he had some precum on his penis so he wiped off and then wiped it off on his pants. Somewhere around 15 to 30 minutes later he started to finger me. I'm pretty sure he used the same hand to finger me. He was actually going in pretty deep and I am extremely worried I might be pregnant. The day after I have just a little bit of blood in my boogers. Could this be a sign that I am pregnant? Maybe I'm just too worried?? Please help!
