Thanks for your query,

If you had periods on 9th in the month of March then you are at risk of pregnancy as the intercourse that happened on 23rd march will lie in the fertile period where a release of Ovum ( egg ) can be expected in you.

The bleeding you had could be due to implantation ( invagination of the growing embryo into the endometrium of the uterus ) that occurs around the date mentioned.

I would suggest you to first take a Home urine pregnancy test and confirm the pregnancy.

If it comes positive and you are not willing to continue on it , you can opt for medical termination.But this has to be done under supervision of a gynecologist as there will be undesired effects of the medications used , also the medications will not be given by the pharmacist unless there is a valid prescription for the same signed by the gynecologist.

There will also be a need for a check Ultrasound scan to rule out any left out parts of the abortus.

Do consult a gynecologist after you get the test done for safer management.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
