hello. I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend a few weeks ago after I had my period and we used the pull-out method and he isn't sure if he pulled out all the way in time. I have been peeing a lot more and a lot more recently along with having extra vaginal discharge. I have always gotten heartburn occasionally, but lately I have been having it everyday, especially when I wake up in the mornings. I get tired around 10 pm nowadays even though I normally stay up extra late. I have gotten recent headaches. However, I started my period this afternoon, a week early.The weird thing is, I normally have a very heavy period, especially the first few days and I have only had light blood, mainly brown, and didn't have any signs of starting my period except breaking out. Should I wait and see if my period turns out normal? Is there a chance I am pregnant, or am I just stressing over it?

Welcome to ehealthforum

Pull out method is not a reliable method and chances of conception are present in it.Also the symptoms reported by you(tiredness,heartburn,headache,vaginal discharge) are suggestive of pregnancy.It seems that the bleeding which you had might be implantation bleeding.
Get a Blood HCG test done for pregnancy determination.Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!
