Well, a week ago, on Thursday, I had sex for the very first time. He wore a condom, and ejaculated outside. He checked the condom, said it was fine. Now, I'm a very panicky person, and I knew I would get pretty nervous waiting for my period, more so because I'm very irregular. Funnily enough, two days later, I got my period; first three days were as usual, very, very heavy for me (lasted 5 days). My question is, am I on the clear? Or should I wait for my next period to know I am definitely not at risk? A week later, this Thursday, I visited my doctor, told her briefly about my problems and she performed an ultrasound to check for cysts. In the end, she told me to be on birth control, but I didn't get the chance to tell her how worried I was. I just want to stop stressing over this so much. Thank you, any help I can get is so appreciated.

Hello Jandra93,
There is no possibility of pregnancy in this case. First of all, having a period is the first sign that you are not pregnant. Secondly, you cannot become pregnant because he was wearing a condom which did not break.
You having nothing to worry about.
Also, most doctors will proscribe birth control pills for women with irregular periods. However, it is not necessary to have a regular period unless you are trying to get pregnant or you have severe symptoms like debilitating cramps without bleeding.
In other words, having an irregular period does not necessarily mean something is wrong. It is actually very common.
Taking birth control pills may however, ease your mind when having intercourse.
