I had unprotected sex in the beginning of April right after my period. It didn\\\'t last long bc I didn\\\'t want to get pregnant. He said he wasn\\\'t close to cumming. My next period came a day early and was lighter. I could use a tampon though. It wasnt bloody though. More like a pinkish/brown like the beginning of my period. I was super stressed over this English paper and I figured that\\\'s what it was until I read something about implantation bleeding. Now Im scared I\\\'m pregnant and can\\\'t figure out whats up with my body. It\\\'s now June and my last period was also lighter. The gas I have is freaking me out and I keep feeling tiny pains in my ovary area. I haven\\\'t been throwing up and my boobs are fine and everything. Iv told you everything iv noticed. Please help me! I\\\'m only 16:/ I just want to stop worrying and get an answer without a pregnancy test.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Shorter and lighter periods along with your other symptoms could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. If you have been having unprotected intercourse (and if you are not on any other form of birth control measures) then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out as you were closer to your ovulation time after finishing your periods. Few women can start experiencing symptoms as early as 24 hours after a fruitful intercourse, and few do not experience symptoms at all. The appearance of symptoms (few or all) depends on how your body reacts to the changing hormonal status. Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. If you suspect to be pregnant, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately).
Take care.
