I was supposed to have my period April 21 but I was not experiencing any of my usual pms symptoms like sore breasts and bloating, I had unprotected sex but did a withdrawal the night of April 20, a day before my expected period. When my period did not came till April 22, I drank nordette as an ECP (it's already my 3rd time using it). Earlier today (May 1) I saw few blood on my underwear, it looks a somewhat sticky and clumpy and dark red to brown in color. In addition, I still don't feel any of my usual pms symptoms aside from my nipple area feels sore on one breast but not on the other. Could I be pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to us.

Please call and speak with either your gynecologist or primary care physician.

Had you had unprotected vaginal intercourse since your last period?
How long is your menstrual cycle?

If you have a regular, 28 to 30 menstrual cycle, you should have ovulated two weeks or so, prior to intercourse on April 20.

Keep us updated,

My only unprotected intercourse was on April 20, and did a withdrawal that time. My menstrual cycle usually lasts 3-6 days. And today, I was also experiencing light bleeding which is dark red in color and with clots. My cycle is usually 28-35 days. I don't know any gynecologists right now so I have a problem going into one. Could I already take a home pregnancy test? Just to be sure.
