A:   Hello, I understand your doubt about pregnancy and menstruation. Surely, let me reassure you that there is no possibility of pregnancy in your case. Menstruation occurred in the same day of your sexual encounter, meaning that the egg is not fertile anymore and the uterus lining is also not prepared for implantation. In the future to avoid unwanted pregnancies, you might want to talk to your health care provider about contraceptive methods. He or she would kindly explain them to you and suggest you the best choice. I wish you the best.
