hi,
Thanks for the query.

after stopping the hormonal contraceptive methods the period taken to returning of ovulation can vary from person to person, it can range from 2 weeks to few months,
as now you are having regular periods and ovulation and crossed expected date of periods there is possibility for pregnancy,
though symptoms may not confirm pregnancy but they will act as supporting features in diagnosis,
now you go for blood test or urine test for pregnancy which will find out the possibility of pregnancy.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

hi,

if you had unprotected intercourse two days before ovulation there is possibility for pregnancy, as the spermatozoa can be alive in genital tract up to 5 days in ideal circumstances,
as you already crossed the expected date of periods you can go for blood test now, urine test can also be done but sometimes it can give false positives and sometimes may not detect early pregnancy, so if facility is there go for blood test if not urine test that is home pregnancy test, depending on the result you can plan your appointment with the doctor.


Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
