I don't have a regular period. There's something wrong hormonally so they just don't happen. Last night I had unprotected sex and just saw that now I'm bleeding. It's been 9 months since my last period. Does me starting now say anything about the chance of being pregnant? Please help.

Hello, and thank you for sharing your question with the community.  I understand how strange this must be for you.  I'd love you give you some helpful information.

For women who have irregular periods, it sometimes occurs that she can ovulate during a period but this is very unlikely and rarely happens.  Because the sperm can live in the body for 3-5 days, pregnancy can sometimes occur if you have sex during your period.  But since it seems like your period started after having intercourse, it is actually a good sign that you are not pregnant.  If you want to be completely sure however, taking a pregnancy test is always a quick and easy way to find out.

I hope this has been helpful.  Let us know if you have any more questions.
