User :   Hi, i had an intercourse with my boyfriend last night for the first time, but all of sudden i had my period, it was my first day. my boyfriend decided to use condoms anyways because he thought it would healthy. however, he couldnt insert his penis to me so we couldnt have sexual act plus it was painfull. we tried so many times, but nothing until he asked me to have sex without using a condom since i had my period, it wouldnt be a risk to get pregnant. so we had unprotected sex during my period. can i get pregnant? should i take the plan b pill?. could u please give me an answer about it? thanks

Doctor :  
If your cycles are regular then you can calculate the days

What is termed as safe period in medical terms.
Doctor :  
May i know are your cycles regular?
User :   well somtimes im irregular, i was uspposed to have my period last week and i ended to have it yesterday morning
User :   first day
Doctor :  
If your cycles are very iregular then it is difficult to calculate.
Doctor :  
But let me just say this.
User :   ok
User :   sometimes i have my period every 30 days or more than that
User :   i could say 30-37 days
Doctor :  
According to your cycles the unsafe periods lies between 27th to 5th of every month.
Doctor :  
But this is a rough calculation and may some time be wrong.
Doctor :  
It is calcualted by sustracting 14 days from the first day of your period.
Doctor :  
that is the day when you have ovulation and results in pregnancy.
Doctor :  
But the most safest period is when you are menstruating.
User :   ok
User :   yeah ive heard of it
User :   but i was not sure about it
Doctor :  
The chances are least when you are menstruating.
Doctor :  
So relax.
Doctor :  
There is no need for plan b.
User :   yeahh im alittle bit concerned about it
User :   it was my first time so that's why im asking those questions
Doctor :   Remember
Doctor :  
you do not have ovulation on
Doctor :  
the days of menstruation
User :   even on the first day?
Doctor :  
And even if you had one it comes out through the flow
Doctor :  
hence there chances are almost immposible for pregnancy.
Doctor :  
Yes
Doctor :  
Even on the first day of periods.
Doctor :  
So you do not need e pill.
Doctor :  
Have i cleared your doubt.
User :   :) thankyou ive heard the semen could live inside of the uterus for 5 days is that true? cuz my boyfriend told me that he eyaculated but it didnt get inside
Doctor :   Theoretically yes.
Doctor :  
But since you are having the flow
User :   ok
Doctor :  
The semen will not stay in the utreus.
User :   really? well he told me the semen didnt get in, so i guess i shouldnt be worried about it
Doctor :  
yes
Doctor :  
you can relax.
Doctor :   Is there any other query?
User :   next time im gonna take birth control pill i already saw a dr, do u think my partner still need to protect himself even there is not chance to get pregnant because im taking pill?
Doctor :  
Protected sex is not only for birth control
Doctor :  
But it is to avoid unnecessary infection.
User :   yeahh
Doctor :  
Hence it is always better to have protected sex even if you are on oral pills.
