Is there still the possibilty of being pregnant?

Asked by KurlZ (91points) April 8th, 2010

Okay so I have a very scared best friend who believes that she might be pregnant but she got her period 4 days after having sex so I told her shes’s fine and there’s no way she could be pregnant. Am I right?

Wait, what? She got her period but is still scared that she’s pregnant? Why?

No she is not pregnant because she got her period… Duh.

@deni Idk I keep telling her not to worry about it that she not but she’s still scared about it

KurlZ's avatar

@smokeweedeveryday I know!!! Thats what I told her.

Then if she really won’t believe it tell her to take a pregnancy test, or two, or three. That should do it.

Easiest and less painful way of solving this is to buy a pregancy test! It is unlikley she is pregnant if she has has a period, but it has been known for women to have a period right the way through a preganancy

Depends, was it a regular period? Or was her cycle very light and abnormal?

I hope she learns her lesson about engaging in unprotected sex. . .

@rahm_sahriv I’m not sure I didn’t think to ask

I’m just going to tell her to take a pregnancy test. I’m pretty sure she’ll feel much better when she sees that she’s not and that she doesn’t need to worry anymore.

My cousin has four children and continued to have her period during all of her pregnancies. So I would say anything is posible, just unlikely.

Do you know if she had a full period or did she just bleed for a day or two? As @rahm_sahriv if it wasn’t a regular period she could still be pregnant. It could be something called implantation bleeding. She should take a pregnancy test to be sure.

just remember if she’s pregnant but takes the test before her body produces the hormones she’ll test negative

AstroChuck's avatar

@SuperMouse- I know for a fact that with her first child she had her period throughout the pregnancy. I’m unsure about the duration during the other three.

rahm_sahriv's avatar

Yes. Get a pregnancy test to be sure. If she started her period just a few days later, then fertility was ripe, I believe, according to the rhythm method of avoiding pregnancy. Get a test, and depending on the results, your friend might need to invest in some condoms. Or baby diapers.

Yes! Have her go to a clinic for a pregnancy test and find out for sure. My mother was near 6 months pregnant with me and still having “periods”, her body finally began to show and that’s how she found out.

It is scary to think that young women and men believe just because a woman has a period means she isn’t pregnant. It simply means she might not be pregnant, and that it is probably unlikely she is pregnant, but it isn’t a definite ‘no’ like I am getting the sense young people think it is. Do they not care to learn about their own bodies and how they work?

Of course anything’s possible, but as a strict follower of the “rhythm method” for the past 20 months (before anyone says anything, I’m married, I hate what hormonal birth control does to me, and I wouldn’t be devastated if I fell pregnant), 98% of conceptions occur between days 8 and 19 of the cycle. If she had a normal 28 day cycle, day 24 would have been in the 2% margin, but about 5 days past what I would call “safe zone”.

Buy a pregnancy test kit and see.

It is completely possible to have spotting and perceive it as a light period while pregnant.

davidbetterman's avatar

Maybe she had a miscarriage…

YARNLADY's avatar

Could be? Yes, pregnancy is always possible when having unprotected sex. Have her see her doctor immediately.

It is possibe. I had a sister in law that had periods for the first few months of her pregnancy. Best to buy a test. It is quick and painless and she will lift alot of worrying off of her.

Do an early response pregnancy test. They are super-sensitive. Something like EPT.
