I had sex with my girl friend a week in a half ago unprotected. She just started doing color guard and now all of a sudden her stomach has sharp paint that come and go and she feels bloated and it's a week before her period starts. Is she pregnant ???

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community for help.

There could be a chance. This was unprotected intercourse about the time she ovulated.

For now, she needs to wait. If her period is late by at least seven days, she needs to test for pregnancy. If this is causing her anxiety, she can purchase an early response pregnancy test which allows her to test five days before her period is due. For the most accurate result, she needs to test in the morning and use the urine when she first gets up.

Please keep us updated.
