What are the chances of pregnancy?

Patient: I am afraid of getting my girlfriend pregnant. I used a spermicidal condom, that did not break. What are the chances?

 

 

Symptoms: Period a day late

 

 

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.Little bit of irregularity in periods can occur due to many c auses.Usually, menstrual cycle with length of 21 days to 35 days should be considered as normal only.As you had protected intercourse the possibility of pregnancy is less.If your girlfriend doesn’t get periods even one week after expected date, better to go for the pregnancy test once.Take care.
