John (18) writes: Hi. I am totally freaking out right now and I was hoping this site would help. I am scared that my gf might be pregnant. We’re only 18. We had unprotected sex on Nov 18 2011 which was the 3rd day of her period and I accidentally came inside her. She told me she was still bleeding on her period on he next days after we had sex.
Its now a month and a week late and she still hasn’t had her period yet. We tested with home pregnancy tests from dollar tree and all of them came negative. The first time we tested was before her period was suppose to be due and then we tested again after her period was 2 weeks late. They all came put negative but she’s been telling me that she’s been showing symptoms such as back pain, headaches, and tiredness.
I really don’t know what to do. Im really confused. Can she be pregnant?

If you had sex in the middle of her period, it would be extremely unlikely that she could become pregnant. Has a girl ever gotten pregnant when having sex during her period? Some claim such. Is it probable? It’s definitely not likely (we’re speaking around 99% certainty).
Was this her first time having sex or does she regularly or rarely have sex? It’s not abnormal for someone who doesn’t have sex frequently to have their period messed up after having the rare moment of sex.
Add to this the negative pregnancy tests (and Dollar Tree’s inexpensive tests work well – I’ve used them many times myself), and I don’t think pregnancy is what you are dealing with. So, what could it be? Possibly nerves or else something else. Anxiety in a girl (i.e. when she is afraid she is pregnant) can mimic many pregnancy symptoms (believe me, this happens all the time). Or, it could be something else which a doc would need to diagnose.
I’d wipe away the worries of her being pregnant. Then, keep a careful eye on the symptoms, and if they continue after the next week, schedule a time to see the doctor. But, pregnancy should not be a cause for how she’s feeling. It could very well be hormones. (Got to love our bodies!).
Hi again. Thanks so much this really helps. Yes, we regularly have sex. Sometimes with condoms and sometimes without. BUT when we do have sex without condoms, I am always EXTREMELY cautious. This was the only time I got too carried away when trying to perform the pull out method for the first time. It was really really stupid of me. Her cycle is normally 28 days. Her last period STARTED on Nov 15 or 16 because, as I said up top, I remember the accident happened on Nov 18 which was like 2 or 3 days after her period started and it was DURING her period. She was still bleeding normally for the next couple of days after according to her. It’s now Dec 29 which means she’s about 2 weeks late on her period. (Sorry I said a month and a week late up there i miscalculated) Just in case, I’ll be a little bit more specific. We took dollar tree tests only, the New Choice ones. We took 2 of them a week before her period. Then another a couple of days after her period was supposed to be due. Then took another a week after that. And 2 more the next couple of days. They were ALL negative. It gave me hope but some confusion because she told me she is still experiencing some symptoms and her period STILL isn’t here. As i said on top, backaches, headaches, tiredness. She’s also feeling dizzy now too. I’m thinking of going to the clinic to get tested there and maybe do a blood test after. I am really scared. Sorry if im repeating myself from my previous comment. Im just really paranoid and thought I should be a little more specific. I really do hope its just hormones, like what you said. Any thoughts on this?
Thank you for providing additional details. She should be fine. I’ll side strongly with the many pregnancy tests which she’s taken. It’s improbable that she’s pregnant. The symptoms must be being caused by something else.
John, women can get pregnant while on their period. Sperm can stay in a womans body a week after having sex.

Hi my name is Jessica j I had my period on Jan 5th me and my bf we had sex on round like the 10th of Jan he didnt pull out we had sex again on 15 Sunday morning and I was just worrying if I can get pregnant week after my period cause my best friend told me I could 2012
In theory, it’s possible to get pregnant any time of the month. However, having sex at certain times of the month increases your odds. It’s always best to use at least a condom; even better to get started on a regular birth control prescription. Let’s hope you have your next period the beginning of February; however, if you don’t, then I would strongly recommend taking a couple pregnancy tests. I would take the first one around Feb 10, and be sure to take it first thing in the morning.

Hi, I have a question and i’m really worried. I’m sorry to provide graphic details though, lol. Basically I’m 17, and a virgin, but me and my boyfriend were messing around and he ejaculated onto my tummy, which then ran down ‘there’ My last period was 20th January so if i was to be pregnant, i would be about 4 weeks gone, but i’m still awaiting my next period. I have had slight cramping and sore nipples, and horrible pressure like headaches with dizziness. I have that ‘feeling’ that something’s not normal, but what are the chances of me being pregnant? I’m too scared to take a test so early, because I’m scared of the result!
