Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex maybe a week ago on my period, but I've been have some recent morning sickness bad and then I had sex 2 weeks before my period too and still had a normal period after , is there a possible chance I could be pregnant?

Hello Saraconnelly,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community.Thank you for reaching out to us with your question.

There was a risk of becoming pregnant when you had (?unprotected) sex two weeks before your period.

But, since you had a normal period, you did not become pregnant.

To become pregnant there needs to be a released egg. So, when you are having a period, ovulation has passed and there is no risk.
