We had sex day before period started, few days after, and on ovulation day. Now I'm cramping, sore gums, mood swings... What's the cause?

Start with a home: Pregnancy test. I thought you were OK until I read you had sex on ovulation day. If you use birth control (and its reliable), your risk of pregnancy is very low. No birth control? Get the test. ...Read more

Ovulation: No. You are not pregnant. You get pregnant from sex the five days before ovulation. Not before menstruation. Bleeding at your period, even if less than normal, never represents pregnancy. ...Read more

Been on birth control for 4 years. Had unprotected sex the night before period started. Went through cycle still taking pills. Am I pregnant?

Been on birth control for 4 years. Had unprotected sex the night before period started. Went through cycle still taking pills. Am I pregnant?

Probably not, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred). If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period month after month, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Coul I be pregnant if I had sex right before my period started, my pariod was early and it only lasted 3 days?

Possibly: Pregnancy is alway a possibility. Purchase and perform a home pregnancy test. They usually become positive when you are about a week late. If it's negative, repeat in one week and call your doctor. ...Read more

What are the chances of getting pregnant if you have sex days before your period starts. Are chances higher or lower?

What are the chances of getting pregnant if you have sex days before your period starts. Are chances higher or lower?

Generally lower: If you are within a few (3-5) days of starting your period, your chances will be lower than if you are in the middle of your cycle or earlier. But, this is not considered a reliable form of birth control. If you are having unprotected intercourse, you are at high risk of becoming pregnant (no matter how you try to "time" the intercourse). ...Read more

Unprotected Sex: Any time you have unprotected sex you are at risk for pregnancy. If you have missed a period get a home pregnancy test and check about 4-5 days after you miss. Likewise if your period is different check a pregnancy test. If you don't want to be pregnant get on a reliable form of birth control. ...Read more

Period roughly 5 days late. Had sex used a condom and he pulled out both times. Had sex day before period should have started. Sm pink spotting 3 days?

Take a test: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. Take one today. ...Read more

Light period then brown spotting then nothing. Ended in two days. I had unprotected sex about 8 days before period started. Am I pregnant?

Light period then brown spotting then nothing. Ended in two days. I had unprotected sex about 8 days before period started. Am I pregnant?

Hard to tell...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An ob-gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Hi docs, do you think it's bad to have sex before you start your period?

Hi docs, do you think it's bad to have sex before you start your period?

No more than any: Other time. Just use the normal precautions. Many women experience an increase in desire for sex just before their periods, and then have some relief after sex. Part of that is hormonal, part psychological (anticipating a break from sex for a few days). ...Read more

I had unprotected sex 5days before my period and started it a week late, and had unprotected sex is it possible I could bpregnant I have had my period every month on the 17 or 18

There: There is always a possibility of pregnancy when you have had unprotected sex. Obviously the odds are greater around the time of expected ovulation. Ovulation occurs 14 days after the first day of bleeding (day one of your cycle). Conception is usually a few days before or after this occurs.
If you are very concerned you can take an early prediction pregnancy test about ten days before your period is due.
Lastly, consider discussing birth control options with your doctor.
Good luck. ...Read more

Can I get pregnant if I had unprotected sex 2 days before my period started?

Can I get pregnant if I had unprotected sex 2 days before my period started?

Maybe: Not sure I understand your question correctly, you said 2 days before your period started. Obviously, if your period started then you are not pregnant. Just keep in mind that some people are really fertile, and they can get pregnant even when trying to time things just right. That's why the "rhythm" method (sex only certain days of your cycle) doesn't work that great. ...Read more

Unlikely, but: It's unlikely that you are pregnant, but there's always a chance if you're having unprotected intercourse. Usually the most fertile time is mid-cycle: about half way between the start of your last period and when you expect to start your next period. If your cycles are 28 days long, then that would be around 2 weeks before you period is expected.
Best way to see if you're pregnant = test! ...Read more

If I had unprotected sex 10 days before my period started how can I yell if im pregnant or not if I'm not throwing up & haven't got my period yet?

If I had unprotected sex 10 days before my period started how can I yell if im pregnant or not if I'm not throwing up & haven't got my period yet?

EPT test: Many otc tests are good for early pregnancy testing & would then be confirmed by your md.
More concerning is that you're only 18 & having unprotected sex. If you're considering the new morning after pill I want to warn you that it is not a good choice. It does not protect you from std's or warts and should never be your birth control choice. See your OB and be responsible about your sexuality. ...Read more
