Hi,

Thanks for your query.

It is nearly impossible for an intercourse on the day before your due date to result in pregnancy.

The ovum released around the midcycle would have degenerated by this time and hence lead to the periodic bleeding.

Need not worry; you can still get a home pregnancy test done to be assured.

Hope I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

ok, do you think I might be getting all these symptoms due to just nerves???

I am so stressed out, I cant even get out of bed.

I highly doubt I got pregnant due to what you just mentioned and because he did not fully ejaculate and he was wearing a condom. If this is the case thought, i dont know why I am getting all of these symptoms.

Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

The thoughts are mainly due to anxiety you have.

Need not worry; I assure you that the chances or pregnancy are very negligible.

It’s better to get the home pregnancy test done which surely shows negative and get you out these thoughts completely.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Hi,

Two weeks is much enough to consider the result of a home pregnancy test reliable.

Test done after two weeks completely rules out pregnancy if negative.

You can relax.
