My last period was on Feb 1( this was my first period since a d&c procedure on jan 17). I had protected sex on Feb 7 and although there was no penetration my boyfriend ejaculated very close to my vagina if not next to it several times that same week. I tend to have an irregular period. On March 3 I had unprotected sex (starting without a condom and ending with one) and on March 4 I took a pregnancy test which came back negative. I would assume that rules out pregnancy as a result of the intercourse and close run ins that took place early in the month of Feb. As I still have yet to receive my period how likely is it that I am pregnant from those earlier incidents (prior to that of March 3)? Today I started taking Vitamin C as well as drinking parsley infusions. Advice?

Hi Anon,

If you had protected sex in February then your chances of being pregnant from your boyfriend ejaculating close to your vagina are slim to none. Remember that in order to get pregnant sperm need to enter the vaginal canal and go through major travels-- they aren't that stron to find their way from the outside, into the inside and then still find their way to your unfertilized ovum.

I'm sure that the D&C and your irregular period are the reson for you still not having your menstrual cycle. Continue to have protected sex and keep us posted!

Well I took another pregnancy test yesterday because my period still hasn't come and it came back negative. Should I have blood work done to test for pregnancy or is this a for sure result and my period is just being irregular? I was wondering if the parsley infusions and vitamin C could give me a false negative...

Drinking parsley and taking Vitamin C would not give you false negatives on a pregnancy test. Home pregnancy tests are up to 99% accurate at detecting any "pregnancy hormones" in your body, once you have missed an expected period.

The reasons Rosa gave you for a late period are still relevant, and you can call your doctor if your cycle is longer than 35 days, since you had a D&C in January. (Count "day 1" as the first day of bleeding with your last period in February. Most cycles are between 21-35 days).
