Hi, Greeting, I have seen your queries as to the chance of pregnancy for sex on the 18th day for a 32-34 day cycle period? ovulation happened always 14 days back from the first day of the period, which means you had ovulation on the 18-20th day, 1. Therefore, you have some risk (10-20% chance) of pregnancy so watch your period and if you miss, you can have a urine test or you can have a blood test early. Then you will act according to the test result about a possible pregnancy. 2. As to the use of contraception, start on the second day of period or on the first if it is as usual (amount and type of bleeding). 3. you don't have to take contraception till you see the next period for you are past the ovulation and you may have a pregnancy, if you start Yasmin you may postpone the next period. I hope you get what you are looking for. good day.
