Hello, I had unprotected sex the same week I had my period. I am experiencing some mild period like cramps.

Patient : Hello, I had unprotected sex the same week I had my period (period somewhere between 1/3/15 -1/7/15 sex on 1/8/15) so I took Ella the next day 1/9/15 after unprotected sex about 16 hours later. Got my period 1/31 and lasted until 2/2/15 with some spotting 2/3/15. It's now been 2 days and I'm experiencing some mild period like cramps but no bleeding. What should I do?
Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for the query. I understand your concern. The possibility of pregnancy is less as usually ovulation w ill not occur on 6th day of menstrual cycle in case of regular periods and as you got periods after intercourse. Sometimes mild cramps can be seen even after menstruation, which can usually subside soon without need of medication. If you want to be sure about pregnancy, please go for urine pregnancy test once. Take care.
