I'm very irregular with my periods

Patient

Q: I'm very irregular with my periods... But me and my fiancé always have unprotected sex. How would I know if I'm pregnant?

Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
If you plan unprotected intercourse around the time of ovulation, there is a possibility of pregnancy.
To track the ovulation, you can use ovulation kits or cervical mucus method or follicular studies by ultrasound etc.
To find out the possibility of pregnancy, you can go for urine pregnancy test one week after the expected date of periods or three weeks after unprotected intercourse.

Hope this helps.
Take care
