    Am I pregnant?

    We had sex on 15th, 16th and 17th of Aug without any precaution after an interval of one month.

    I had my periods on 18th Aug but the flow was very very less just like spotting days for five days n the colour was also brown.

    It sounds unlikely that you are pregnant given the timings that you state, but you should do a urinary home pregnancy test and repeat it in 3 weeks time. You can get abnormal "periods" which actually turn out to be early pregnancy bleeding so if you are in the least bit worried that this is the case, your GP can also organise a blood pregnancy test for you.

    I would advise a trip to see your GP or family planning clinic anyway to discuss the need for ongoing contraception and for STI screening (infections like chlamydia can sometimes cause abnormal vaginal bleeding too). There is some good information on contraceptive choices on the FPNSW website http://www.fpnsw.org.au/topic_factsheets.html?ID=69&TYPE=QUEUE&KEYWORD=436F6E74726163657074696F6E&BYDSND=TEXTU
