Having Sex Without Contraception During The Fertile Period?
Hello, r n r nI want to ask, so I had my period on April 1-5 2018. Then on April 23 2018 according to the menstrual calendar it was my fertile period and I had unprotected sexual intercourse on that day. But my partner said that he didn’t come out inside. Then on 12-14 May 2018 I had menstruation but the blood was still in it and it didn’t flow and the volume was very low. My period should have been on 9-13 June 2018, but I still haven’t had a period. Is there a possibility that I might be pregnant? If so, how old is my pregnancy? R n r nThank you!
Hi Bianca, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Before that, I want to confirm first, did you only have unprotected sexual intercourse once on April 23rd and there is no history of having sexual intercourse again after that? What is the distance between your regular menstrual cycles?
If the interval between your menstrual cycles is less than 35 days, it is unlikely that April 23 will be your fertile period. Having sexual intercourse outside of the fertile period is unlikely to result in pregnancy, especially if the sperm is released outside the vagina.
Even though it is small, the possibility of pregnancy is still you. To be sure, you can do a pregnancy check up with a test pack. If the sexual intercourse on April 23rd was the last sexual relationship you had, then it is likely that the result is very accurate. You can have your first pee check in the morning to improve the accuracy of the test. If you are pregnant, then if it is calculated based on the day of conception (if it is true that 23 April is the only day you have sexual intercourse), then your estimated gestational age is 9 weeks 3 days.
If your prenatal checkup is negative, then the menstrual delay you are experiencing may be caused by something else. Some other things that can cause menstrual delays include stress, strict diet and excess exercise, gain or loss of excess weight, use of hormonal contraceptives, diseases such as thyroid disorders, diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), etc. To find out more clearly the cause of your menstrual delay, you should check with your obstetrician for further examination and management.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
