Worried about first time
Posted on: 01/12/2011
Hi. I'm 15 and my first time was this Saturday. We used condoms, I did bleed and I?m still spotting. It got thicker today, which is Monday, but it went away after I washed up. Is this normal?
Also I?m really worried about being pregnant, too, even though we checked and the condoms didn?t break or anything. Please I need answers.
While condoms are very effective if used correctly, this would be a good time to go see your doctor or Planned Parenthood to start on a reliable method of birth control. It is normal to bleed a couple days. If your period does not start on time, see your doctor.
