Thanks for writing to us with your health query.
The menstrual pattern that you describe sounds pretty regular to me.
You have not mentioned what was her usual period duration, prior to August.
If she regularly has periods lasting for 2 - 3 days, then there is nothing to worry about.
Also, with regular cycles such as you have mentioned, the chances of pregnancy are quite low.
Also, it is common for women to have high libido and sexual arousal during the time of periods, due to increased blood flow to the pelvic organs.
As you are stressed out about the pregnancy aspect, you can go ahead and take a pregnancy test, that would cover the time of sexual activity till August.
And in September, you had sex during the periods, which also keeps her protected.
A pregnancy test can be taken as soon as this period ends.
Also, you have always had protected sex, so this further reduces the chances of pregnancy.
The bottomline is that I think the chances of pregnancy are almost zero, however just to reassure you and eliminate any margin of doubt , I would recommend a pregnancy test once this period ends.
All the best, and please feel free to ask any further follow up questions.

Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Travelling across various time zones, and hectic work schedule, haphazard sleeping schedules - all of them can cause irregular cycles.
All you need to do is to take a pregnancy test once the current menstrual period is over.

Only rarely, irregular cycles might indicate a pregnancy or related complications. Therefore in all probabilities, I consider pregnancy unlikely

All the best.
