Nancy, You cannot get pregnant from sex 2 days before your period. Your ovulation is at least 10 days before that day.

Even if everything went wrong and you did ovulate then, by the time the egg gets to your uterus, it will not be able to support implantation and you will have all the wrong hormones in your body to support pregnancy.

I assume you took a morning after/emergency contraceptive pill like Plan B? First off, the sooner you take these pills, the better they work. These pills contain massive doses of hormones that will mess your cycle up. Added to the obvious panic you are experiencing, your period will most likely be delayed.

Even though I do not think there is any chance you can be pregnant from this incident, make sure for yourself. Get one of the early detection pregnancy test kits, follow the instructions, use the first pee of the day and retest 7 days later to confirm the first result.

Why did you have unprotected sex when you do not want to be pregnant? Please please please take responsibility for your own safety and use condoms to protect yourself from pregnancy and STDs.

Take care!

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.Delay could occur some times due to orgasm or sometimes monthly harmonal changes. So you could wait for upto a week but take the home pregnancy test to rule out the pregnancy risk. But fortunately, in the last days of cycle just before periods pregnancy is rare.

Take care
