Risk Of Pregnancy After Post-menstrual Intercourse?
Can it cause pregnancy when I have sex when a few hours I feel that my menstrual period is over. And the night was directly intimate? If it causes pregnancy what is the way to prevent it? Thanks.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Sexual intercourse can cause pregnancy if it causes fertilization of an egg cell by sperm cells. This might happen if you have sexual relations with ejaculation in the vagina at any time, except when menstruating.
So, related to your question, is it possible to get pregnant if you have intercourse a few hours after menstruation, the answer is certainly possible.
The potential for post-sexual pregnancy will be higher if you have sexual intercourse during the fertile period. During this fertile period, the mature egg cell will be removed from the ovary to be transferred to the uterus. On this journey to the uterus fertilization often occurs when there are sperm cells that enter the uterus. If your menstrual cycle is always regular and normal (the distance between cycles ranges from 21 to 35 days), then the fertile period usually occurs around 14 days before the coming day of the next menstrual forecast. However, if your previous menstrual cycle is irregular and / or abnormal, the fertility period is very difficult to determine just from ordinary calculations. Therefore, it is possible that after menstruation is your fertile period.
There is no special way that can ensure you avoid pregnancy, other than by not having sex or using contraception. If you and your partner have already had sexual intercourse, even the use of contraception will not necessarily diminish the potential for conception. Therefore, the wise step that you should take at this time is to observe, are there any signs of pregnancy that you experience, for example menstrual delay, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headache, weakness, fatigue, breast tenderness and swelling, frequent urination mood swings and so on. If there is, you can check whether these signs actually appear due to pregnancy or not, that is by using a testpack or checking directly to an obstetrician for an ultrasound.
If in fact you are really pregnant, accept gracefully the results of the actions you and your partner do consciously. However, if it turns out that you are not pregnant, and you and your partner still intend to postpone pregnancy, you better consult directly with your doctor or obstetrician regarding the selection of the right type of contraception.
