Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina.

If sperm was not deposited on or in your vagina then you can not be pregnant. ...Read more

You : You should schedule an appointment with a gyn to have a history and physical exam as well as labwork. It may be your hormones are at abnormal levels or it may be another cause.
