User :   Is is possible for my GF become pregnant? We did sexual intercourse but i always did a withdrawal method. Never cum inside her. Also i would like to make this point. every time before we start to had sex with each other i always use to urinate first to clean any pre-cum. I dont use condoms. even she didn't took any Contraceptive pills, due to withdrawal. But now my GF facing Irregular periods. Last month she got on 18th, even in november too she got period exactly. But this month already 34 days gone, she still dont get period. She was really scared, could she be pregnant? Help me to know plz..
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
ok
User :   Hello sir
Doctor :  
please give me time to read through what typed.
User :   ok sure
User :   Hello sir
Doctor :  
yes
Doctor :  
i am here
User :   i need to know why irregular period for my GF
User :   she already reduced 4 to 5 Kg of her weight in the past 30 days itself. So that will be the reason?
Doctor :  
women tend to have varied lengths of periods due to difference in mental, emotional and hormonal status
User :   but till now my GF is regularly got periods, but this month only she facing this and really she was sacred
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :  
it could be that she is aslo tensed up with this so the length is varied
Doctor :  
when was her last menstrual period?
User :   is there any chance of getting pregnancy?
User :   her last menstrual period is exact DEC 18 th and it lasts upto 3 days
Doctor :  
ho many days cycle does she usually have? 28 days? 30 days?
Doctor :  
*how?
User :   that 3 days she was is period
User :   18th 19th and 20th of dec
Doctor :  
ok
User :   Even in november too she got period on 18 or 19th only
Doctor :  
so she should have hot her periods on 17th Jan if she had a 30 day menstrual cycle
User :   yes, is anything wrong with the withdrawal method?
Doctor :  
withdrawl method is known to have a high failure rate.
User :   but today is 21. thats why she is scared sir
User :   oh then what we need to do now for irregular period?
Doctor :  
the pre-cum that comes is known to contain sperms and during the fertile period of women, this itself can cause the pregnancy
Doctor :   what you can do now is to wait another 5 days
User :   thats why i already states i alway urinate before had.
Doctor :  
if she gets her period during this time, then she is not pregnant
Doctor :  
if she does not, then you will need to test for pregnancy to confirm
User :   then what we need to do. Consult any gynacologist is better?
Doctor :  
you have not understood the pre-cum thing that i have told you
Doctor :  
precum is something that comes out as lubricating fluids before the semen comes
User :   So within 5 days she got period means no problem na?
Doctor :  
and during sexual activity it does come out
User :   ok sir i understood
Doctor :  
so if you have had unprotected intercourse during the fertile period of hers, i.e, when her egg release time is there, then there are high chances that she will be pregnant even though you follow the withdrawl method.
Doctor :   so what i suggest you now
Doctor :  
is to wait for next 5 days more
User :   myself and my GF are going to marry this september. but before that, this unprotected intercpurse made us scared. what we need to do right now?
Doctor :  
if she gets her period (normal period) with the usual bleeding and other symptoms then she is not pregnant
Doctor :  
if she does not get her periods or she gets less bleeding or no other symptoms of pain, then she is pregnant
User :   Is abortion is legal?
Doctor :  
and end of these 5 days you should do a Beta HCG blood test
Doctor :  
which is confirmatory for pregnancy
User :   In which way we need to approach a doctor and ask for abortion?
Doctor :  
if you people have already decided to marry why you want to go for abortion?
Doctor :  
what has the newly concieved child's fault? it came into existence due to you people, not by its wish
User :   becoz of family situations. september only marriage. then now itself she is pregnant means?
Doctor :  
and also aborting the first child leads to infertilty problems later on
Doctor :  
due to scarring of uterus that takes place with abortion
Doctor :  
and there is problem with concieving again
User :   but still it is not confirmed. so better we need to wait for 5 days and then go for that Beta HCG test
Doctor :  
you talk to your family and ask for preponing the marrriage
Doctor :  
in case she is pregnant
User :   ok sir
Doctor :  
you dont need to tell them that you want the preponement due to her being pregnant
Doctor :  
you can give other reasons that you want to be together soon
Doctor :  
why wait til september
User :   ok i understood. Is any pills available incase she pregnant means, the pill could stop the pregnancy?
Doctor :  
if she is already concieved you cannot stop the pregnancy now, only way is abortion which could later lead to infertility issues in you
Doctor :  
only way to stop pregnancy is using condoms and birth control pills regularly
Doctor :  
and not letting conception take place
Doctor :  
once it takes place then you cannot revert it back
User :   so the possible solution to this situation is?
Doctor :  
its a life that is formed during conception, you cannot stop it, if you dont want it then only way is to kill it i.e abort it
User :   how many days between a period is acceptable? is it 35 days okay to get normal period?
Doctor :   do not worry about things, now just wait and see what happens in these 5 days
Doctor :  
then you can decide what you want to do
Doctor :  
i have told you the possibilities about the putcomes you can expect
Doctor :  
*outcomes
Doctor :  
for some women 35 days is normal
User :   ok ok.
Doctor :  
for some women upto 45 days is normal to get period
Doctor :  
but your case is different
User :   but why it happens like this?
Doctor :  
she used to get regular periods before
User :   why that much long delay?
Doctor :  
if now it is changed then there has to be a reason for that
User :   due to stress and loss of weight?
Doctor :   either she is prtegnant or psychologically too scared that is upsetting her hormonal levels and not letting periods come on time
Doctor :  
that is why is said to wait another 5 days and see
Doctor :  
even loss of weight could be stress related
User :   ok sir,
User :   So after 5 days, can we go for a medical check up?
Doctor :  
the stress of having sexual relationship before marriage and what will happen if anything goes wrong..this itself wil be a huge stress for her
Doctor :  
after 5 days you should go for beta HCG test in vase she does not get her period
Doctor :  
or she gets less bleeding and no usual symptoms of menstruation
Doctor :  
have you followed what i have said?
User :   even though she got period in this 5 days, is it ok to go for medical test?
User :   yes i remember what you said.
Doctor :  
if she gets less bleeding and no usual symptoms of menstruation (not like her normal menstrual period) then you should anyways rest for pregnancy
Doctor :  
Is there any thing else I can help you with?
User :   This beta HCG means what sir, whether it takes long time to conclude?
Doctor :   no it does not take lot of time
Doctor :  
its a blood test that is more accurate than the urin etest
User :   whether it hurts my Gf in anyway?
Doctor :  
since she is scared, there are chances that the pregnancy hormone concentration be less in urine
Doctor :  
which will give a negative test result for pregnancy
User :   so it that case?
Doctor :  
it is like a normal blood test, blood wil be taken and tested. usually the early morning sample is better
User :   blood test is better isn't it?
Doctor :  
i can see that you love her very much, and i really appreciate your concern about her.
User :   How it is possible to get early morning sample sir?
Doctor :   so control yourself, be her strength, ultimately you both should be happy
Doctor :  
so dont hesitate to marry her sooner if she is pregnant.
User :   ofcourse sir
Doctor :   and support her mentally and emotionally, she needs your support to come out of her stress
User :   early morning sample means? how it is possible? sure i will be her support always.
Doctor :  
early morning sample can be given before having breakfast around 8 am
User :   thats fine sir, i understood.
