Welcome to HCM,

In a regular menstrual cycle of 28 days, ovulation generally occurs on the 14th day of menstrual period.

One can become pregnant due to intercourse, on or around the day of ovulation.

Thus you could be pregnant, if you had unprotected sex around expected date of ovulation.

In a women of child bearing age, the most common cause of abnormal uterine bleeding is pregnancy and its complications like ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage.

Other causes are hormonal imbalance, trauma, anovulatory cycle, infection(cervicitis, endometritis, vaginitis), uterine polyp/fibroid, P.I.D., cancer (of vagina, cervix, uterus, ovaries), certain drugs and bleeding disorder etc.

Detailed history, examination and investigations are required.

Thus you should consult a Gynecologist to establish a diagnosis and treatment.

Welcome to HCM forum

You should do a pregnancy test at home as well as ultrasound and blood hCG if required.
