please proceed with your query

Doctor :  
User :   i had sex again on the 7th of jan and the condom broke
User :   but i got my period on the 8th/9th
Doctor :  
if you are regularly having unprotected intercourse it is better that you be on a regular BCP rather than taking emergency contraceptives for each time
User :   it started off just spotting then within a day it was heavier like my normal period
Doctor :  
User :   could it be possible that i could have gotten pregnant when the condom broke?>
User :   broke
Doctor :  
we cannot say, as your ovulation time wil vary a lot due to the hormonal disturbances that ou have created by taking several times teh plan B

Doctor :  
usually for a 30 day cycle, ovulation happens around 8-16th day, so anytime during this period if condom breaks or you have unprotected intercourse, you can get pregnant
