Hello,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.


Pregnancy occurs only during the time of ovulation which is release of mature egg from the ovary. It usually occurs regularly, around day 14 of a 28-day menstrual cycle. Since you had intercourse on the 21st day of your menstrual cycle( approx) chances of pregnancy are less. Moreover you taken the post coital pills within 2-3 hours of sex. This further decreases the chances of pregnancy.

If you are apprehensive regarding the status of your pregnancy you can get it checked by doing a urine for pregnancy test. The test can be positive anywhere from about 2-3 days prior to a missed menses to 4-5 days after, but usually it should be done 7-10 days past your missed period.

Otherwise you can get a serum HCG also done which is more specific than urine pregnancy test.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
