Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
You get closer to your during fertile days/around the time of ovulation after finishing with periods, and if you had been sexually active after your last periods without protection, the chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms and avoid any self medication. Wait and watch for your periods. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
