Q: 

I had sex about a week or two before my expected period, what are the chances I'm pregnant? And can you have a period, and still be pregnant?

I don't know the exact date of my last period, but I believe it was around August 18th. I've always had a very irregular cycle, going anywhere from 3 to 6 weeks between periods. I had unprotected sex and my boyfriend came inside me on September 11th & 15th. I have several questions. What are the chances that I am pregnant?? At what point, if I don't get my period, should I take a pregnany test (& the results be accurate)?? Is it possible that I might get my period anyway, and still be pregnant? I've read that it is possible, but it's usually an irregular period. Mine are usually fairly light & only last about 3 days. What might be different if I am still pregnant? Also, I can usually tell when I am about to start, I get really awful cramps for about a week before hand. I have not had this at all or any other signs that I might be getting ready to start my period, or that I might be pregnant. Except that I have had to pee a lot. Any information and advice would be helpful, thanks!

We can't say if you will or will not get pregnant; but your risk is low.

Hello Anon

Her period confirmed she is not pregnant. You need to use a condom on future.

Hello Anon

The withdrawal method works if you have an extremely regular cycle and are certain you are not ovulating and won't in the next 5-days. You haven't given us any information to go on in this regard but this answer should help.

Best,
Susan

Okay so I'm in the same boat. I had unprotected sex like 10 days before my period but ever since I got off my period (April 5th) I've felt like im going to throw up and it feels like I'm cramping but worse. Could i be pregnant? Ive been getting kinda dizzy too. And headaches. I dont know what to go. Any answers?
