Hello, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Yes, women can have spotting or a light period or blood tinged mucus even if they are pregnant. So, if this has happened for the first time with you and you have had unprotected sex then please take a pregnancy test and see. Hope this helps. Take care!

I had my appendix removed about two weeks and a couple days ago. Maybe 7 days after surgery me and my husband started having sex. What seemed to be my period came on for 3 days but I was mostly spotting and the blood was light light bright red. Now when I have sex I spot a little then it stop. Could I be pregnant?
