I had protected sex during the week of, and during ovulation. [4/12] My period was one day late and much shorter than it normally is. I thought everything was fine, but I still feel weird. I took a pregnancy test this morning,[5/3] and it said not pregnant. Is it too soon for that to be accurate?
No, I don’t believe it’s too early for that to be an accurate reading. But, if you feel that you’re just not yourself and that you need to test again, then do so. You can also go to a clinic and get a blood test done which will give you the most accurate results.
I have had early, and late periods and periods that have lasted longer and shorter at times than my ‘normal’ cycle. As you get older, and during times of stress or changes in lifestyle, your period can become effected.
I hope this has helped. Please let us know if you need any other guidance or help.
I would say that if your period that started on Monday, (2 days after unprotected sex) was your normal expected cycle date, then you most likely are not pregnant. When were you due to begin your period this month? If it is within Monday’s date, give or take a day or two, you may not be pregnant. However, I will tell you that anytime you have unprotected sex you can become pregant. Even while using protection, couples have become pregnant due to failure in their contraception.
If you do not start your period on your next due date, then you may give yourself a few extra days to see if it is just late, and if it still doesn’t come you will need to get a blood test done at your clinic. They are the most accurate and will eliminate any false readings from home pregnancy tests.
Let us know if there’s anything else we can help you with.
