when we had sex she is in around 12-15th day.
i am afraid, can u please suggest me to take any precautionary steps to avoid pregnancy, is there anything i can do now to avoid pregnency??

User :   yeah pls
Doctor :   when was her last menstrual period?
Doctor :   after how many days gap does she get her periods once? is it 28 days or 30 days or more?
User :   her first period was around on 7th of last month
User :   and next has come imm ....26th
Doctor :   how many days before did you have the unprotected intercourse?
Doctor :   according to her, when is her next period due? does she have regular periods?
User :   i had on 5th this month
User :   its regular before may...
User :   but only last month ...dates got changed
User :   regular shuld be 5-7 eery month
Doctor :   ok. let me understand it right. her last period was on 7th May
Doctor :   and she was supposed to get her next period by 5-7 th June
User :   yes she got her periods on 25th may
Doctor :   ok. this May 25th period, was it like her normal periods? or did she have less bleeding?
User :   almost like normal
User :   lasted for aroung a week
User :   around a week'
Doctor :   was your unprotected intercourse between 7th May and 25th May?
User :   nope..its on 5th june
Doctor :   ok.
Doctor :   if her last period was on 7th May and she has 26-28 day cycle, her fertile period would be between 15th -23rd May
Doctor :   when was her periods before May?
User :   its regular ...i mean in dates around 7th every month
Doctor :   ok. in that case her next normal periods should have been between 5-7th June
Doctor :   and if you had the unprotected intercourse on 5th, June, then chances of pregnancy would be less
Doctor :   as she is almost due for her periods that time
Doctor :   in case she did have her normal periods on 25th May
User :   but she didnt get her periods on those regular dates...5-7 june
Doctor :   and has been having a 26-28 day cycle, her fertile period would be between 1st June to 9th June
Doctor :   and any intercourse during this time can result in pregnancy
Doctor :   since she would have her egg released at that time
User :   i m confused
Doctor :   her periods dates are confusing. I have told you possibilities regarding both the dates
User :   now if she is having regular periods till may (7th) and dates got disturbed this may ..i mean ..period again on 25th may
Doctor :   if she really had her normal periods on 25th May, then there are high chances that she is pregnant at present
User :   25th is nt her normal date
User :   its 7th is her normal date
User :   and only the last month she got it on 25th
User :   even though i didnt release inside thr any chance ??
Doctor :   even pre cum is known to have sperms in it, and if she has had periods that were near to normal in terms of duration and bleeding then it can be considered as her normal periods
Doctor :   and since the unprotected intercourse was in the fertile period, the chances remain high that she can get pregnant even if you did not ejaculate inside her
Doctor :   does she have any symptoms at present?
User :   wat symptoms??
User :   what symptoms ....can u pls list ?
Doctor :   doe she have early signs and symptoms of pregnancy? like increased fatigue, tiredness, constipation, breast soreness, nausea, increased hunger?
User :   no tiredness, no breast soreness, no increased hunger
Doctor :   ok
User :   and i didnt get wat is increased fatigue, nausea, constipation
Doctor :   fatigue is tiredness and feeling weak
Doctor :   nausea means feeling of vomiting
Doctor :   constipation means hard stools
User :   no..thr are no symptoms like those as of now
Doctor :   ok.
Doctor :   look out for these symptoms
User :   i shuld be able to find those symptoms till now?
User :   by wen i shuld find these ??
Doctor :   some women get them withing days after unprotected intercourse, some do not get it till 3 months or more, it is very subjective
Doctor :   so we cannot rely on them
Doctor :   since she has had her last periods on May 25th
Doctor :   it would be better to wait and see if she gets them again after may 22nd incase she has a 28 day cycle
User :   shuld i take any precautionary steps ?? to avoid?
User :   consuming anything will help?
Doctor :   if the intercourse was on 5th june, it is too late now to do anything in emergency
Doctor :   emergency contraception works if taken between 12-48 hours of unprotected intercourse
Doctor :   now just wait and see if she gets her periods on time
Doctor :   or if she develops any of the above said symptoms
User :   so..other than waiting for her next periods i wont be able to do anything ??
Doctor :   and get her examined by a gynecologist if she does not get her next periods
Doctor :   if you do not want the pregnancy at that time, you can go in for abortion
User :   if she dont get her periods ...thn will any tablets can help ..or she has get operated ??
Doctor :   the options for it will be decided based upon her health condition
User :   ok...
User :   and doctor...
Doctor :   yes, please proceed
User :   sex from 8-15 will have high chance of getting pregnant right?
Doctor :   unprotected intercourse frm day8-day15 taking day1 as first day of last bleeding, will result in pregnancy, if she is having a 26-28 day cycle
