User :   last month on the 15th
Doctor :  
ok
User :   so what does this mean? im freaking out
Doctor :  
what is her menstrual cycle length? in how many days gap does she get her periods once?
User :   it seems to last a week or so, not very long
Doctor :   in how many days gap does she get her periods once?
User :   yes
User :   once a month on the 15th lasts a week or so
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :   you can ask her to wait for her periods, sometimes women tend to get periods about 5-10 days late
User :   ok.
Doctor :  
and also if she got her last periods
Doctor :  
on 15th last month
Doctor :  
and you had the intercourse two days back
User :   today she got a hole heap of injections would this be why?
Doctor :  
the chnaces of her getting pregnant is minimal
Doctor :   what injections had she taken?
User :   im not to sure, her school made her have them, she had 3 today
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
do not be worried, wait for next 10 days
Doctor :  
see if she gets her periods
Doctor :  
if not then ask her to get tested for pregnancy
Doctor :  
it is almost unlikely that she wil be pregnant
Doctor :  
and make sure you do not have unprotected intercourse if you do not wish to have a babay
User :   ok. is it true there's no way a woman can get pregnant in two days?
Doctor :  
even pre-cum at times can lead to pregnancy since it contains sperms
Doctor :  
the pregnancy depends on the time when you have intercourse
Doctor :  
if its done during her fertile period when egg is released, then she will get pregnant.
User :   so two days before she is surpose to get her period is good or bad?
Doctor :   having intercourse two days before the expected perod date may not get her pregnant
User :   ok
Doctor :  
but if due to various reasons teh egg release has happened late then the chances are there that she can be pregnant
Doctor :  
so right now ask her to wait and see if she gets periods within next 5-10 days
Doctor :  
and avoid unprotected sexual contact in future
User :   for sure
Doctor :  
use a condom even if you do not indulge in penetrative sex
Doctor :  
make sure no semen gets in touch with the vagina, not even the pre-cum
User :   so what are your thoughts? most likely not pregnant?
Doctor :  
as per the details you have given me, it is not likely that she is pregnant, but we still cannot rule it out
Doctor :  
as due to various reasons if the egg release has happened late then the chances are there that she can be pregnant
Doctor :   Is there any thing else I can help you with?
User :   if she is what can i do
Doctor :  
Please fill the feedback form say done when done, while I answer your next query
Doctor :  
if she is pregnant, and does not get her periods, repeat the urine pregnancy test after 10 days.
Doctor :  
and do a beta HCG test to confirm or rule out the pregnancy
User :   we dont want to have a baby so what do we do?
Doctor :   which will give you a definite answer to whether she is pregnant or not
Doctor :   and if she is found pregnant with these tests
Doctor :   then you have to discuss with her doctor what is the best way to have her get a safe abortion
Doctor :  
depending on her health conditions
Doctor :  
and the age of the baby
User :   is it expensive?
Doctor :

yes, it could turn out expensive dependng on what the gynecologist decides to do
Doctor :
