So your period started 11/23 and you had sex within those first few days of your cycle? If so it is extremely unlikely that you will get pregnant. Take a test if you miss your period. Good luck!

Can you clarify – you had sex on your period? The likelihood of being pregnant is virtually non existent if that’s the case.

stephaniee24 :  You need to wait until you miss your period. Did you think about taking the morning after pill. I am pretty sure you are out of the window now, but you can take it 5 days after unprotected sex. 

 

ETA: sex on your period makes it very hard to get pregnant, but it does happen.

I would recommend reading “Taking Charge of your Fertility”. Even if you’re not having a family right now, it gives you a really amazing idea of how your Cycles work and when you can and can’t become pregnant, test…etc.

I really think that every female should be required to read it.

stephaniee24 :  How long are your cycles? That would probably affect a lot of this.

Did you husband know that you had forgotten your birth control at the time in which you were having unprotected sex?

I have irregular cycles and sometimes ovulate early so we have to start trying on my period but it is still very, very unlikely especially as early as day 1 and 4.

If you were already having your period on the first day you missed your pills, then does that mean you were on the sugar pills for the final week of the pack? If all you missed was sugar pills then you are likely fine. If you missed pills containing hormones, that’s more concerning, especially if it is on either side of the hormone-free interval (ie. sugar pills).

ladytimberwolf :  This. The question is whether your period started on the 23rd because you did not take your pill on that day (withdrawal bleeding), or because it was supposed to.
