on 10th july 2013(1 day after her period got over) me and my gf had some physical touch where my penis just touch on the outer of her vagina a little for a very small time(2 sec-4 sec max)
immediately on 11 she has taken ipill(emergency contraceptive pill) and on 16 july she had withdrawal bleed for next 3 days till 19 july .next month she got her period
on 14 aug 2013(29 days after the withdrawal bleed) and it was heavy and continued till 19aug(for 5 days incluive of 14 afternoon till 19 afternoon).in the month of september she had her periods
on 9th september(27 days from last one) and normal for 5 days ,in the month of october also she had her periods from 5 oct 2013(27 days from last one) till 9th october normal.arnd last week onwards
she was feeling little bloating near waist and her face is quite oily and even pimples came on cheek although there is no weight gain in these last three months.she had some pain near thumb and forfinger now its fine
is there still any chance of pregancy even after 4 periods (including the withdrawl bleed and 3 normal periods).Does any chance exist still ,since she hasnt missed any period in the last 3 months we have done any pregancey test,i saw online in some place that people saying they bleed for 5-6 months and still get to be sure of.

Brief Answer:
She is NOT pregnant!

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Firstly, chances of pregnancy are practically NIL. This is particularly when your gf has had three normal periods at regular intervals and for normal duration.

HENCE, JUST RELAX. Just forget about what you read online: that's a different condition altogether: it is nothing but a threatened abortion- which manifests (in pregnant females) as occasional/IRREGULAR spotting which does NOT coincide with the expected date(s) of periods.

Abdominal bloating was apparently due to an intestinal infection, indigestion or worm infestation. A 5-day course of metronidazole and a single tablet of albendazole 400mg will suffice. Similarly, oily skin and acne (pimples) too have nothing to do with pregnancy. Pimples occur on oily skin, due to bacterial infection entering into the sweat glands and subsequent blockage of the openings of sweat glands in the skin. A course of appropriate antibiotics, frequent washing of face with soap and water; avoidance of squeezing of pimples, will suffice.

If you have any further clarifications, I will be happy to answer.

Brief Answer:
Your partner is not pregnant

Detailed Answer:

I reassure once again that your gf is not pregnant. Firstly, there was no penetration from your side. Nor did you spurt inside her vagina. Further, your gf had taken Ipill, followed by withdrawal bleeding. Lastly, your gf did NOT have any features of pregnancy

Decidual bleeding is not true blood, but brownish or a pink discharge, NOT true/frank blood. It occurs to expel the inner lining of the uterus so as to keep it healthy. It occurs due to imbalance in the female hormones. And, so is the case with the so-called implantation bleeding, which may mimic as menstruation, but occurs as few drops of blood.

Actually, production of a particular female hormone rises significantly so as to prepare the uterus to have a favorable environment for the fertilized egg to get implanted. It is this increase in the hormone which is detected in the pregnancy test.

In the absence of fertilization of the ova, there is a rapid fall in the levels of this hormone. Thus, there is reverse imbalance between the female hormones, which uncommonly cause decidual/implantation bleeding.

So, please relax and there is nothing to worry about. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES DO REGULAR PERIODS COME DURING PREGNANCY.

Lastly, pain in legs after prolonged walking may be due to anemia or doctor, who would order blood hemoglobin level and Vitamin B12 estimation. she can have Vitamin B12 = 1500micrograms daily for 1-2 months : her leg pains will also disappear.

hope I have answered your query.
