Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Last month I took Ipill and I got withdrawal bleeding. My cycle changed from 27 days to 41 days and I got my period. And this month my partner inserted his penis and removed it after 5 seconds. When should I expect my period?

Kindly help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understand your concern. Your last cycle got disturbed because of the pill but most probably this cycle could be like your previous cycles which were 27 to 28 days and in such activities, it is very rare to cause pregnancy. Also, you had intercourse on quite a safe day of yours, do not worry about the pregnancy.

I hope this helps.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Yes, doctor I did not take any pills, and the intercourse was just inserted and removed for 5 seconds, and just for 1 hour now I am having cramps in my abdomen. So there are no chances of pregnancy, right?


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

There will not be a pregnancy and most probably you will get your period on your due date. The cramps could be a premenstrual symptom.

I hope it helps.

don't worry, within a week you will get your periods, normally also 1 week fluctuation occurs, and usually after ovulation vaginal discharge occurs ,, and it's its no smelly then no intervention needed... thank you !

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
