I got my period on 3-6-2010 and my period is always 5 days long. But this month it was from 3/6 to 3/7... I had sex on the 7th and then my period just stopped... I've had sex with my husband a few times befor on my period and usually is normal but this month was different. Can I be pregnant? I've never had any problems with my period since I was 12. Should I take a prego test?
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. The possibility of pregnancy canât be ruled out as if you have been having unprotected sexual intercourse and the chances of pregnancy are definitely always high. Iâll suggest doing the serum HCG test for the confirmation of pregnancy. This is a much more sensitive test compared to the urine test and can be done without waiting for the missed periods. What you are suffering from is called oligomenorrhoea. This can result from stress, excessive exercise, hormonal disturbances or thyroid disorders. Please do consult a gynaecologist for the same.
I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
