Hey Dear!

Thanks for writing to EHF!

AS far as i can understand from your question. you had unprotected sex with your boyfriend after first day of your period. and now after 5 days again you got another period. and now you are concern about pregnancy.

Well if you are correct about your periods days it is highly unlikely you are pregnant. first day after period falls with in PREGNANCY SAFE period. Women has no egg and there is no chance of fertilization and hence pregnancy. but problem arises when you are not sure about dates. so if you are sure chance of pregnancy is almost none and this 2nd period is sometime normal. it can be residual blood which came out now. but still to make sure yourself visit a local pharmacy and get a pregnancy strip. you have to pee on it and in few minutes it will tell you are pregnant or not.

Hope it helped
