Hi Jocelyn,

There is definitely a possibility that you may be pregnant.

I would advise you to get a home pregnancy test done to check.

i am a women aged 28. My period cycle was regularly of 11 or 12 th of each month. However, the same has been delayed by 3 days this time. Once few days back while i was about to get indulged in intercourse my husbands condom bursted before penetration. However, he did ejeculated at that time and his sperm was spilt on my vagina a bit. So to avoid pregnanacy, i immediately washed of my vagina as well as its near by areas. Can this be one of the reason for delay. Will i be pregnant due to such incident.
