Periods delayed. Genital contact, no penetration, semen dripped near vagina. Spotting with pink discharge. Pregnancy chances?

Hi need an urgent reply about this. . . My period was due two days ago but didn t show up. My period is kind of irregular though and shows up maybe a few days late sometimes. Thing is, two days ago I also got intimate with my partner. We had genital contact but no penetration, however a lot of semen dripped onto my thigh and near my vagina entry. I m afraid that while washing the area I may have pushed some in instead and am now considering taking an emergency contraceptive pill (which I just bought at a pharmacy) as I ve read online that sperm near the entry of the vagina can in fact make its way to the fallopian tubes and can even stay alive for up to a week. However, today I see pink discharge spotting and am expecting that my period is arriving. Is it possible for me to have my period if I got pregnant? Should I take the contraceptive pill or not? This would be my first time and I haven t had penetrative sex yet. Please help, thanks.

Hello,

There is no chance of pregnancy in above type of sexual activity just prior to period due date (2 days ago). 1-7 days period date alteration is normal thing. You may take contraceptive pill to take extra protection against pregnancy but literally it is not necessary in this context. Also pill may cause next cycle delayed or earlier due to hormonal imbalance.

As you are getting spotting or pink discharge now, it indicates that your period starts shortly. It is impossible to be pregnant during period. Therefore I suggest to wait at least 7 days before proceeding to investigation of irregular period. In such cases, you need to consult with your gynecologist.

Avoid stress, take healthy diet with iron supplements, control body wt and take a sound sleep. Practice safe sex in future to avoid unwanted pregnancy.

Be well & take care.
