Hello doctor,

I had unprotected sex after four days of the period this month. He did not ejaculate inside but I am not sure about pre-ejaculation. Within an hour after intercourse, I took unwanted 72 and I had bleeding for only one day. Is there a chance of pregnancy or not? Is it a withdrawal bleeding? My mensuration cycle is 30 days. Does it come under safe days or not?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Since you have taken the emergency pill within 72 hours of intercourse there is no chance of pregnancy. Yes, you had intercourse during your safe period, which is from day 1 to 10 of your period. Yes, the bleeding is withdrawal bleeding. There is nothing to worry about. So relax and do not worry.However, if you have a doubt then get back to me.

Hi doctor,

Thank you so much. But I read on the internet that in a regular cycle of 28 days, day 8 to 18 are fertile. So in my case, does it come under safe days?

Thank you doctor,

After unprotected sex, how many days later can I take the pregnancy test?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Once you have missed your period, in a day or two you can get the urine pregnancy test done with early morning urine sample to ensure that you are not pregnant. I hope you have got a clear idea now. However, if you have a doubt then get back to me.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

No, do not do the test before your dates. And do not worry so much. There is no chance of pregnancy, as you had sex during your safe period
