Hi, please help me. I’m 19 and scared.. I’m not usually sexually active at all but I made a mistake twice in July and had unprotected hookups. Last months period lasted only 3 days and was late. This months period came today–on my app it said 6 days early. The blood started out a pinkish color then changed to a reddish color. My pad is basically dry but whenever I sit on a toilet blood drops out(sorry), and I have BAD cramping/ pls symotoms(crying sporadically for a a minute at a time). My period is always kind of weird like this but I’m just worried because I had sex. I used to have a very heavy and painful flow most of the time where my pad would soak up (sorry) so this is what makes me nervous. I’ve lost some weight the past few years naturally and I chose to start eating vegetarian about a week ago(could this effect it?) also im a coffee drinker.

Ok…..pictures were unnecessary lol. It sounds just like a normal period to me. I’d strongly recommend using protection moving forward.

She didn’t say it was but you need to put a warning on your title before you post graphic photos.
That is way too much blood to be implantation. Get on the pill and practice safe sex from here on out.

Definitely just a period. Practise safe sex and if you’re still unsure whether it’s a period then wait a week or two and take a test. There shouldn’t be that much bright blood for implantation

You haven’t had sex since July? Take a pregnancy test. It’ll be accurate.
Please use condoms to prevent STIs. And please look into going in the pill, or getting an IUD.
And yes, dietary changes can affect your period.

Dietary changes can definitely affect period timing – mine is regular almost to the hour, but changing my diet made it start days early. This looks like a regular period to me, definitely start using protection though. It’s not worth the risks.

100% your period. If you had those hookups in July, implantation would happen between 6 and 12 day past ovulation, so within two weeks. Also, implantation bleeding would never be that heavy, nor is implantation bleeding very common.
From someone who has been where you are in her late teens/early 20s, please get checked for STIs. They are much more common than you think.
