I had sex with my boyfriend in May 31st and I had my period the next two months after we had sex and I'm late with my period this. Is there a chance i could be pregnant?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Two periods after sex indicates you are not pregnant.

Pregnant women do not get menstrual bleeding although they can bleed in pregnancy.

A menstrual period happens when a pregnancy does not occur that month and the lining of the uterus, that would otherwise house a baby, breaks down in the form of blood and tissue. A baby could not survive this so a woman is not pregnant when it happens.

Your period must be delayed for other reasons including lifestyle changes or stress. We encourage our readers to take a pregnancy test for confirmation if they still have concerns.
