Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
If you had unprotected intercourse around the time of ovulation, there is possibility of pregnancy.
But as you are having irregular periods it is difficult to guess the period of ovulation.
Just by symptoms we cannot come to one conclusion regarding pregnancy.
For accurate result you can do the urine pregnancy test one week after missed periods or three weeks after intercourse.
Take care.
