Customer Question

I just want to know whether someone can get pregnant in the next cycle even if she got her periods last time and didnt have sex after the last period. We had sex 20 days before the last period and didnt have sex after the last period, but this month the
period is one day delayed. Is it possible that she could have gotten pregnant but didnt show in previous cycle.

If a woman has had a regular period coming when expected, that means that she is not pregnant from any sex prior to that period. She cannot get pregnant following that period from sex she had before the period.

Periods are often delayed or missed, often due to stress.

If her period is delayed and a pregnancy test is negative, she's not pregnant.

We had sex on 16th sept and she got her last period on 12th october. We didnt had sex after 16th sept but her periods i think are delayed by one day for this month. Can she be pregnant?

No.

Should we take a pregnancy test?
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.

I don't think it's necessary.

If her period doesn't come this month, then do a pregnancy test.
