Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question. I am sorry about the delay so I will try to give you the best answer possible!

So let me summarize what I am hearing:
1. 12/9 - intercourse but no ejaculation
2. 12/24 - intercourse with a question of pre-ejaculate
3. 12/28 - she was due for her cycle, but it did not occur
4. 1/9 - she had a small amount of spotting
5. 1/11 - she had 5 days of bleeding, assumed to be her period
6. 2/2 - she had spotting
7. 2/9 - she had another presumed period
8. 2/21 - she had spotting
9. 2/25 - she passed a large clot + liquid

While I think that the chance of pregnancy is actually quite small, it is never safe to assume that she is NOT pregnant. She needs to perform a pregnancy test to make sure that she is not pregnant. There was a risk of pregnancy on 12/24 with what you describe, and women DO experience bleeding during the first trimester that they sometimes mistake as a normal period.

If her pregnancy test is positive, then she needs to be seen immediately by an OB/GYN to figure out how far along she might be.

If the pregnancy test is negative, then this might be bleeding that is related to irregularity of her cycle which is often related to irregularity in terms of when she ovulates. If this is the case, then a discussion with her doctor about ways to regulate her cycle would be appopriate. This, of course, also has the added benefit of protecting against pregnancy that is unplanned!

I hope that this helps - please ask if you have additional questions!

Well, based on what you are telling me, I believe that the chance of pregnancy is virtually zero, BUT it is very important that a pregnancy test is performed regardless of this impression.

I think that a visit to an OB is a very good idea. Make sure that your ask about causes of abnormal cycles (such as thyroid disease) and ways that cycles can be controlled (birth control pill options).

I hope this helps and good luck!
