Brief Answer:
not possible

Detailed Answer:
Dear member,
Thanks for writing.
The first few days of the menstrual cycle are safe if unprotected intercourse happens.
There is no chance of pregnancy as it's far from ovulation period.
Hope this was helpful
Thanks

Detailed Answer:
Dear member,
If your cycles are of 28-30 days then the first 8 days including the days of bleeding are safe for unprotected intercourse.
Thus even after the bleeding stops you can have unprotected intercourse for another 2-3 days.
Hope this was helpful.
Thanks

I had unprotected intercourse with my boyfriend on May 18, '13 (May 10 - start of my period) which is may last day of regular menstruation. No ejaculation happened inside me and my bf confirmed that. I'm getting paranoid cause I'm not yet ready to get pregnant so i researched some contraceptives and Nordette is the only available here in our country. So I took nordette 21(4 pills) and another 4 pills after 12 hrs, within 72 hrs after our intercourse. After 4-5 days (May 24), I got a withdrawal bleeding which happened for 4 days. I haven't got my period yet (June 9 or 10, '13) and I'm two weeks delay now. I haven't take a PT yet. Is there a chance that I'm pregnant? How long does Nordette can delay a period? Please reply to my question 'coz it will really help me to stay calm and not to worry. Thank you.

Hi, I m on birth control and I had unprotected sex two days ago. I have missed one (two at the most) days, but remembered immediately and took it. The pill I am on allows you to do this and take your next pill as you normally would without having to use backup birth control. I am now having a brown discharge and would like to know what you think this means and if I should take the morning after pill. Thanks.
