Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My partner and I had sex five days after my period a week ago. He did not use any protection. For the past one week, we had sex like four times. Right now, I feel my nipples are getting sore, especially when I try to touch it and I do have cramps below my belly button. Is this a sign of pregnancy?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

If you had a regular menstrual cycle of 28 to 30 days, then your fertile period starts from day 8 to day 18 of your cycle. Starting from five days after your periods, you had sex four times for a week, which means until day 12 of your cycle, which falls in the unsafe zone. So you could be pregnant. But, this is confirmed after you are overdue or not. It is not 100 percentage that you will get pregnant. Sometimes, during the second phase of your cycle, under the effect of progesterone, such symptoms may occur and these will go away if you are not pregnant.

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