Thanks for the query.

I had gone through your concern. The fact that you had a menstrual period after the intercourse, rules out pregnancy. The chance of you being pregnant, due to this particular act, is nil.

Hope that answers your query. Let me know if I can help you further.

but i have read articles that you might conceive 1 day before periods and sometime you get to know after 2 months. What i should do?

Thanks for the follow up.

Please do not worry. It is impossible that you are conceiving, as you had your periods after the said history. In simple terms, periods occur only if you are not pregnant. In other words, periods is 'weeping o the womb, as it could not get pregnant'.

As your query goes, it may happen that a person may conceive one day prior to her 'expected' periods. But, in that case, if she conceives, then she would not get her periods. Hope that clarifies.

In your case, you need not do anything. Only thing you have to do is, not to worry.

Hope I had been able to convey the intended advice. let me know if I can assist you further.

According to the science we learn,
- Pregnancy and menstrual periods does not take place together.
- Menstruation takes place only if there is no viable pregnancy.

Every month the womb gets ready for getting pregnant. In case there is no implantation (Process of fertilized ovum getting attached to the womb), then the womb sheds its upper layers, which were prepared for pregnancy. This is called menstrual periods.

Since you had periods, there is no reason to worry at all. Still, if you are in doubt, you can get your pregnancy test done by using a pregnancy kit available at pharmacies. It is usually done if one misses her periods. Since you didn't miss your periods, it is not required. Still, you can check it any time. You can also do a blood test to ascertain that you are not pregnant - Serum HCG. Please check the following medical site.

Another way to know whether you are pregnant is by getting an ultrasonography of the abdomen done. That would ensure the situation.

Hope this helps you calm your mind.
