Hi Yossi
I assume you took a test and it was negative?

If you have been trying for a year with no success you should both be checked out for any kind of infertility issues.

Hi !

I Have a few questions which I would really like to have some answers for ! Me and my girlfriend went on holiday and we made love 9 times or so ( excuse the detail but I need to mention it ) during the holiday and a few times I just rubbed myself against her and put it in for a few seconds without wearing a condom ( Next time I will be sure to wear one ) ! I am 100 % sure that I did not ejaculate inside her ! Our last time was the night before we came home and I again rubbed myself against her and put it in for a few seconds without wearing a condom but each time we really got into it I put a condom on and ejaculated inside the condom ! So she got her period about a day or two after we came home ! What I wanna know is, can I be sure that she is not pregnant since she got her period ? And if somehow sperm got inside of her is there still a chance that she can get pregnant even after getting her period ?? I doubt it though because I think sperm won’t survive until she ovulates again ! I just wanna be sure ?

She is not pregnant - her period proves this. You can relax. Sperm doesn't survive a period.

I have a question. I haven't been on birth control and haven't had a period in 2 months. I have taken 2 tests in the evening which have both came up negative. Could I be pregnant, and just not testing positive yet? Please help me????

Hi Anon!
Anything is possible but it's very unlikely. Your Pill may be stopping your periods. Your tests have been negative = not pregnant.

I'm not on the pill, and haven't been on any birth control for 3 months.

Hi Anon

Sorry, I misread your comment!

It can take up to three months for a woman's cycle to return to normal when she come off the Pill. This may be the case with you.

If you were using something like Depo, it can take many more months, even up to a year or beyond.

Which birth control did you use?

It was the depo. Okay whew I can stop worrying! Me and my boyfriend use protection, but slip every now and again. Definately won't let that happen anymore! Thank you
