Hi my name is hannah and I'm 17. I've recently taken a trip to florida where I realised my period came two weeks early! I've never had a perod that's been early in my life so I am a little first I realised it had a brownish watery discharge mixed with some red blood, then the next day I barely had a period at all, and now today it is a full on normal period. I'm very confiused because I did have unprotected sex a couple times a week or two ago and I checked out i$plantation bleeding but the info on that said it isn't as heavy as a nornmal period. Does this stuff just happen sometimes, could I be pregnant, or could something else be wrong possibly? I wouyld really appreciate some answers.

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Since you have had unprotected intercourse, possibility of pregnancy and implantation bleeding cannot be ruled out. Though implantation bleeding is said to be lighter than your periods (like spotting), few women can experience heavier flow. Other possibilities could be stress, change of lifestyle, place etc., causing hormonal changes and breakthrough bleeding. If you suspect to be pregnant, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for examination and blood tests to confirm/rule out pregnancy.
Take care.
