Hi doctor,

We had sex after four days of her period. What is the chance of pregnancy?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • The chance of pregnancy usually depends upon menstrual cycle and period flow days.
  • Usually ovulation occurs 14 days before next period date. That is 8th to 16th day of menstrual cycle are the most fertile days.
  • If you had sex four to five days before and two days after ovulation, then the chance of pregnancy is high.

Hi doctor,

I have not ejaculated inside her, but still we have a doubt. Four days after completion of her period means, she had period for five days before that and so in total nine days from beginning and today we had sex. Is there any chance of pregnancy?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • The chance of pregnancy is there in your case as you had sex in your fertile days.
  • As ejaculation is not there, the chance is quite low. Wait and watch for the menses.

Hi doctor,

What is the precaution now? Will having I-pill help here?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com. 

  • In your case if ejaculation is not done inside, then the chance of pregnancy is less. So, before taking I-pill just make sure whether you ejaculated or not.

Hello doctor,

Thanks for the reply. Though I am sure that the sperm has not released, still we feel insecure. Shall we proceed with I-pill? What are the side effects?

  • Yes, she can take an I-pill.
  • It is a safe drug. But, may cause headache, nausea and menstrual irregularities.
