Unlikely: If both of you had your underwear on during the episode, pregnancy is unlikely. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex if you have sex.

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Are there any tips to get periods immediately? I.E. Prepone menstrual cycle?

Provera (medroxyprogesterone): Depending on where you are at in your cycle, your doctor can prescribe you 5-10 days worth of Provera (medroxyprogesterone) and then when you stop the medication it will cause a cycle. Hope that helps!

I am 17 and my menstrual cycle isn't regular. I've my periods every 3 months. Is it fine if this happens?

I am 17 and my menstrual cycle isn't regular. I've my periods every 3 months. Is it fine if this happens?

Maybe okay: At 17, the communication between your pituitary gland that tells your ovaries what hormones to make is still maturing. It's possible that this is why your periods are irregular. It's also possible that extremes of weight such as too thin or too heavy can be a cause as well. Thyroid can also play a role. At some point, maybe by 18, if you're periods aren't regular, make an appt with gynecologist.

Delayed period: If you are concerned about possibly being pregnant, then get a home pregnancy test kit from your pharmacy and follow the directions. These home tests are very accurate when done correctly, and doing the test following a missed is the best time. No need to wait and wonder.

Is a 44 day menstrual cycle normal? My periods are usually pretty regular, every 44 days or so but I have been told that my cycle is strangely long.

Is a 44 day menstrual cycle normal? My periods are usually pretty regular, every 44 days or so but I have been told that my cycle is strangely long.

Periods vary.: Not all women have the typical 28 day cycle. Some are 21 days or shorter; others, like you, have quite extended cycles. So long as you are otherwise healthy, and your periods are not excessively heavy or painful, the length of time between them should not worry you. If you're trying to conceive (or avoid conception), simple urine tests (LH strips) can help determine your fertile period.

What day of your menstrual cycle are you most fertile?

Middle of the cycle: 14 days before your period usually so if your cycles are 28 days apart 28-14 =14 if 35 days apart 35-14=21.

Is a 24 day menstrual cycle normal? Sometimes I have 2 periods in one month. Seems too close.

Menses: Normal range is 21-35 days. Two periods in one month is probably too close together. Should be checked. If you are on birth control pills it is easier to control the bleeding. Situational problems, stress can cause missed or extra periods.

How do I monitor my menstrual cycle to determine my best fertile days?

How do I monitor my menstrual cycle to determine my best fertile days?

Calender: Keep a menstrual calender marking the first through last day of each cycle. Ovulation usually occurs 2 wks before the next scheduled bleed. Also, try otc home ovulation tests to see if/when you ovulate. Pregnancy is most likely if you have sex within the 5 days before ovulation and day of ovulation. Menstrual timing for sex only works if your cycles are regular/predictable. Cycles vary at times.

How can I regulate my periods, my last menstrual cycle was Sep 26, 14.?

How can I regulate my periods, my last menstrual cycle was Sep 26, 14.?

Visit your doctor: Irregular periods can be due to multiple issues such as poly cystic ovarian disease (PCOD), hypothyroidism, hyperprolactinemia, or too much exercise (runner). I would advise you see your doctor to determine the cause. But I would start by thinking about PCOD, In PCOD mensturation is irregular, patients have sugar control issues (diabetes), weight gain can be an issue. Tx starts w/ diet & exercise.
