Could I be Pregnant?!/Whats happening

Question
Hi i had unprotected sex while i was on my period (which is heavy and on the second or third day of my 5 of the cycle) and he pulled out but there's always a chance that something could've happened. Now 10 days after the event, im seeing small amounts of yellow discharge when i wipe, and light brown discharge in my underwear. What is the next step to take? Are these early signs of anything at all? Thank you.

Answer
Hi Myra, I would recommend that you contact a pregnancy resource center and find out when you could get a test. They usually give FREE tests and you can find a center at http://www.optionline.org or http://www.heartbeatservices.org and click on the worldwide directory. Yes, there is always a chance of pregnancy whenever you have sex. So if you aren't pregnant and don't want to be, please refrain from any kind of sexual activity. Keep me updated by emailing me at Carieichel@aol.com

Bye for now.
