I had unprotected sex using pull out method on 19th may. I was supposed to get my periods that day but it got delayed and I got my period on 23rd may only. However, my bleeding has been far lesser than usual. Is it possible that I am pregnant? I have been taking pain killers for an injury . Could that have impacted my periods. Please help.

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

Missed or irregular periods can happen for more reasons than pregnancy such as hormonal imbalances, or stress.  It is especially common in adolescent girls and it no cause for alarm.

Neither I, nor anyone else can tell you whether or not you are pregnant however.  In order to know that, you need to wait a few weeks more, ideally after your next period to take a pregnancy test.

The only way to be sure is to visit a doctor
