Hello thank you for answering. Her period is not regular it varies, she feels little pulses in the right side of her vagina. She hasn't had a discharge or anything like that. She still feels the same slight pulsations today. So far it has been for about a week but does not bother her she just says she can feel them. She does not get her period after sexual encounters. Hope this can help.

Hello,

Thanks for the additional information provided.

Pulsations in the vaginal area in the absence of any other symptom are sometimes normal as it can be due to sexual arousal and is felt especially when the person is relaxed. It might be present for sometime and then disappear on its own.

Other than that, if her periods are not regular then it can also be indicative of hormonal disturbances in the body.

Since you had used protection during the act, possibility of pregnancy is also not there. Ask her to relax and if there is development of any other symptom as pain, discharge then it would be better to get a pelvic examination done.

Hope I answered all your questions. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries. Wish you Good Health.

Regards!

Thank you for your support one last Question. If we had the intercourse more than once on a single day say on the third time we performed it unprotected what are the possibilities of pregnancy?

Hello,

Thanks for the follow up.

Unprotected intercourse always carries a risk of pregnancy but chances are more when it is done on the ovulation days of woman which are the most fertile days and are between 9 to 16 days in a regular 28 to 30 day cycle.

Since you have mentioned your partner's cycles are irregular it is difficult to comment.

Hope this helps!
