Maybe. Maybe not.: If already pregnant, that would mean the "period" was not a real menstrual period, because having a real menstrual period clears out the uterus... So having a real menstrual period means not pregnant at that time. ...Read more

It : It would be reasonable to take a pregnancy test now based on your symptoms. It does make it hard when you have very irregular periods as you note. If your test is negative, but you still don't get your period, wait two days then re-take the test. If it is still negative you could see your doctor and possibly get a blood pregnancy test, which is more accurate. In general, the pregnancy test can become positive 10 days after pregnancy though every womans hormone level of pregnancy (HCG) can be a little different at different stages of the pregnancy. ...Read more

Testing is required: I'm going to assume from your question that you had unprotected sex followed by emergency contraception and did not get your menses as expected. I would suggest you do a home pregnancy test. If you are not comfortable with this, you can get a blood test with your gynecologist. Emergency contraceptives can interfere with a normal cycle which might delay bleeding. ...Read more

Test: She could be, so start testing here in a few days. Condoms while great at preventing STDs aren't a great method of stand alone birth control They have a failure rate of about 20%. If she isn't pregnant, its probably time to get her on birth control. Pregnancy tests are available all over. Go get some ...Read more
