I last had my period on the 17th of last month till about the 22nd. On the 12th of this month i had unprotected sex. On the 13th or 14th i got my period early. But it wasn't as heavy and was more red. Just wondering if this might of been spotting which means i could be pregnant? I also have had pains in my stomach and my nipples seem bigger and browner. My cramps weren't as normal either. I could be over thinking it but is it possible to get spotting a day or two after unprotected sex. Could i be pregnant?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sometimes you can have lighter periods and reduced intensity of pre-menstrual symptoms. Variation of +/- 5-10 days in your menstrual cycle length is also considered to be normal. If you had been sexually active without protection around ovulation time, chances of pregnancy are possible. Observe your periods/current bleeding. Look out for development of any other new symptoms. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance.
Take care.
