Question: I am concerned as the last time I had intercourse was mid march, I have had withdrawal bleeds since then, 1 heavy, 2 not so heavy, I have missed my withdrawal bleed, could I be pregnant?

Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be pregnant!

Detailed Answer:

It is highly unlikely that you are pregnant. If you were, 3months is a long time to have significant changes and symptoms that support this. You really don't have them and you are not pregnant, at least. TO be double sure, do a home pregnancy test and report the results to me for more insights and guidance.

I hope to hear back from you. I wish you well.
