Hello Spoorthi,

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

To start, let's figure out if you were at any risk of becoming pregnant. To do that, you need to understand your menstrual cycle.

You are most likely to become pregnant when you have unprotected sex five days before ovulation or on the day of ovulation. Ovulation happens in the middle of your menstrual cycle.

The first day of your period is day one. The menstrual cycle ends with the first day of your next period. So, ovulation happens around day 14.

Now, did you have interecourse on day 5 of your period or five days after your period ended?
How long did your period last?

If you and your boyfriend are certain he did not ejaculate inside your vagina, there was no risk for pregnancy and no need to take the I-pill.

Withdrawal bleeding also known as a hormonal period or fake period, is the monthly bleeding women experience while using a hormonal birth control method, such as the Pill, the patch, or the NuvaRing. During the placebo week of these methods, women will typically have withdrawal bleeding, which often feels like a regular period. Monthly withdrawal bleeding is not the same thing, though, as having a real menstrual period.

Your next period should start when expected. When is it due?
