I got my period on last 22nd April, and I had Intercourse on 27th April. I didn't take any Plan B pill as I was told that one or two days after the period is safe for sex. I am usually on 28 days Cycle. Can I be pregnant?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you are having menstrual cycles of 28 days, then your fertile period would lie between day 8-16 of the cycle taking day 1 as first day of bleeding. The timing of your unprotected intercourse is close to your fertile days or ovulation time (time of egg release from ovary). Sperms once released inside you can stay alive for 3-4 days and egg once released from ovary can stay alive for 6-7 days. The chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely. Look out for development of any new symptoms. Wait and watch for your next periods. If your periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, visit your doctor/gynecologist for examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately).
