I went off the pill for about a month, my fiance and I had unprotected sex 2 weeks ago then the next day I had my period which lasted 7 days. When my period finished I went back on the pill (after being off it for almost a month), a week after being on the pill I bleed for just one day. My breasts are fuller, I have headaches and have been constantly tired the last week. Could I be pregnant (considering we had unprotected sex) or is it just the pill playting up a bit.
Also, if I AM pregnant is it too early for a test? (I would be 2 weeks since the day I concieved) Thanx. :)
Most doctors would agree that it's not possible to become pregnant if you experienced your menstrual period after intercourse. This is because monthly vaginal bleeding expels the egg which is to be fertilized and become a fetus from your cervix via the vagina during menstruation. Further, you do not report another sexual interaction that included intercourse after menstruation, your monthly bleeding...thereby decreasing any likelihood for pregnancy.
A pregnancy test will read positive 8-10 days after a possible conception.
