My concern is could I still be pregnant?
Doctor: It is difficult for me to say whether you are pregnant or not. Pregnancy depends on a number of factors like the day you had sex in relation to your period, life span of the sperm and other factors. For example in a women who has a 28 day cycle, she usually ovulates on the 14th day of the menstrual period. Any unprotected sexual activity 3 days before of after the day of ovulation, greatly increases the chances of being pregnant. The only way to be sure of pregnancy is to do a urine pregnancy test the day of a missed period or after 2 weeks.
