Welcome to ehealthforum,
Altered or abnormal periods could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy (if you are not on any form of birth control). If you have had intercourse during the end of periods, chances of pregnancy are possible especially if you have had early ovulation in your menstrual cycle. Sperms can stay alive inside you for 3-4 days. Wait and watch for your next periods or observe your current periods to see if it turns normal. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. If you suspect chances of pregnancy, or if you develop any other new symptom suggestive of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
