User :   ok so me and my guy friend hooked up on valentines day but i got my period 5 days later so my question is could i still be pregnant?

User :   Well what do you think?
Doctor :   hi
User :   hi
Doctor :   if you have got periods than you are not pregnant

User :   you dont think that it might be possible cuz i hooked up 5 days before
Doctor :   did you get your periods?
User :   yes
Doctor :   you got periods after you had unprotected sex right?
User :   yes
Doctor :  
if you have got periods tan there is no possibility of pregnancy with the intercourse you have had before getting periods
User :   ok im just worried about the whole thing
Doctor :   any ways if you are still worried
Doctor :   you can confirm by the urine pregnancy test
User :   true
Doctor :  
so get an early morning urine pregnancy test done at home
Doctor :   i am sure it will be negative
Doctor :   still for your satisfaction
User :   ok so its not at all possible that i could be pregnant
Doctor :  
from the description you have provided it is unlikely that pregnancy can happen
User :   ok just making sure...well thanx
Doctor :   is there anything else i can help you with?
User :   maybe one more but its very opposite from my first question
Doctor :  
proceed with your query
User :   well what if i want to get pregnant?
Doctor :   is your menstrual period a 28 day cycle?
User :   its actually very irregular cuz i was takin the depo but i stopped taking it almost a year ago
Doctor :   ok
User :   i just started my cycles back up in october
Doctor :   count 14 th day from the first day of starting mensus
User :   ok
Doctor :   5 days on either side of the 14 the days if intercourse occurs than the chances of becoming pregnant is more
Doctor :   did you understood?
User :   not really
Doctor :  
say for example you started menses on 1st of march ok
User :   k
Doctor :  
so 14th dayof mensus period will be 14th of march
Doctor :   5 days on either side means
Doctor :  
9th of march to 19th of march
User :   oh ok i get it now
Doctor :   ok
User :   so is it wrong to want to get pregnant but not tell him about it?
