Spotting, light pink CM, feeling quite nausea, 3 days after unprotected sex, also 3 days after ovulation, could I be pregnant?

Spotting, light pink CM, feeling quite nausea, 3 days after unprotected sex, also 3 days after ovulation, could I be pregnant?

Hard to guess: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. 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, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex 3 days after my ovulation and again had sex 3 days before my period is due. Is there a chance I might be pregnant?

Ovulation uncertain.: Your date of ovulation is never exact. It is more like a suggestion. You may have ovulated much earlier than the date you expected to ovulate and it could have been later. Any unprotected sex can result in pregnancy. You cant use your ovulation date as your method of birth control. If your cycle is 5 days late or more then check a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Im now 5 days post ovulation, been bloated the past 3, & have had mild cramps on & off today. Had unprotected sex the night of ovulation. Causes?

Your hormones: are likely in flux for whatever reason, and you would need to be patient to see if things would settle down. Menstrual fluctuations are affected by many different factors, including nutrition, psychological state of mind, stress, infections/ illnesses, etc. If you continue to have these symptoms and you are late menstruating, check a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Hello doctor. My girlfriend and I are sexually active, her period is always on time we had unprotected sex about 3 days after her ovulation cycle  and her period is now 12 days late no symptoms/ signs of anything . Is she pregnant ?

Maybe pregnant: Pregnancy is the most common cause of a missed period. If not pregnant, other causes of a late or missed period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (especially birth control pills), hormonal disorders, etc. Having sex keeps the human species going, by creating more babies... unless we do some contraception. ...Read more

Yes: Plan B can work in one of three ways depending on where you are in your cycle.

I had unprotected sex on the 19th of march. I ovulated on the 20th of march and took Plan B on the 21st. Does Plan B work after ovulation has occurred?

Yes it does.: Planb belongs to post coital contraceptive methods when taking high dose oral Progesterone with or without estrogen combination prevents pregnancy. It works by preventing fertilized egg from implanting into uterine lining. However it's efficacy is not 100% but probably about 85% and must be used within 48-72 hours after the unprotected sex. ...Read more

Is it normal to be cramping on 1 side or the other after ovulation. It's not painful. Had unprotected sex before and after ovulation ?

Is it normal to be cramping on 1 side or the other after ovulation. It's not painful. Had unprotected sex before and after ovulation ?

Yes: Usually only one ovary releases an egg during a cycle. There is a little bit of fluid that is released during this process which can cause some irritation of the lining of the abdomen resulting in cramps. Some women are sensitive and can "tell" when they ovulate but you should never depend on this as a form of birth control. ...Read more

What to do if I had unprotected sex three days ago. I think I've already ovulated. will the day after pill work now?

And yes it blocks the implantation by creating a hostile environment. ...Read more

About two weeks ago going on three, my boyfriend and i had unprotected sex and used the pull out method, but during that week i was having discharge which i believe i was ovulating. I was really wet than usual(embarrassing). Is there a possibility that im

Possible.: Your question is incomplete, but if you are asking if you might be pregnant, the answer is: Yes, you may be pregnant. Anytime you have unprotected sex, even if "pulling out," there is a good chance of getting pregnant. That's is why this method is not considered "safe sex." ...Read more

If you have unprotected sex 3 days before you ovulate and the day you ovulate will the sperm from the 3 days before fertilize the egg first?

If you have unprotected sex 3 days before you ovulate and the day you ovulate will the sperm from the 3 days before fertilize the egg first?

See answer: In general, sperm can survive in the vagina for 1-2 days but up to 5 days in the right environment such as the cervix and uterus. The egg, on the other hand, has a life span of about 12-24 hours. Therefore, fertilization could occur with the sperm from either of the 2 ejaculations. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex while ovulating and took the morning after pill 3 days later. Is there a chance the morning after pill isn't effective?

Misses period 15 days all test have been negative yes I have had unprotected sex in the last 3 wks is it possible I ovulated late and could be preg?

Very unlikely: Most urine pregnancy tests are very accurate, and if performed and interpreted correctly, tend to be positive within days after conception. If you remain unsure, do another test in 1 week if you still have not started a period. It is not unusual for a woman to be irregular, late, and/or miss a period occasionally for not apparent reason. ...Read more

Been having unprotected sex(pull out method)& I'm guessing I'm ovulating since I have a clear odorless gooeydischarge, it's been 3 days though normal?

Keep "guessing": Ovulation can occur at any time in the menstrual cycle but is more common 14 days before the onset of the next menstrual period. Sometimes there is increased "stretchiness" to the cervical mucous. Avoiding pregnancy is very dicey as semen with sperm escape prior to ejaculation or "pullout" and the wrong "guess" results in a certain undesired pregnancy. Please use contraception to avoid STD's & PG ...Read more

I had unprotected sex a day after my ovulation, then I took postinor 2 after 24 hours. Its been 10 days since I took the pill and I haven't bled.

About Postinor 2...: Plan B, Postinor 2, and other brands of emergency contraceptive pills can alter the menstrual cycle for the cycle in which Plan B or Postinor 2 was taken, and sometimes the next month's cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because emergency contraceptive pills work most of the time, but not all the time. ...Read more
