I usually get periods on time or may be 1 day late but this time I am nervous because I did sex just 3 days before my period date. I have no symptoms of pregnancy till now. Am I pregnant?

Hello Shweta bhatia,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for coming to us with your question about possibly being pregnant.

A woman is fertile five days before she ovulates and on the day she ovulates. Most likely, you ovulated about two weeks before you had unprotected intercourse. Stress can delay the start of your period.

But, if your period does not start in the next four to five days, consider taking a home pregnancy test. Or, you can test with an early response test tomorrow morning.
