OK my first question is like say you had unprotected sex 1 (or like a week) day before your period was due would you skip your period for that month or would you get it and skip it the next month(if u were pregnant from that unprotected sex). And my other one is do you know of any other websites like this one?

if you were to get pregnant, you would not have your period at all until after the baby is born (or the pregnancy terminates, etc).

so assume you had unprotected sex and got pregnant, but were expecting a period on thursday. it would not arrive at all. you may see a little spotting of blood, but that's not menstrual blood, it's the bleeding that occurs when the egg burrows into the soft lining of the uterus, which causes some blood vessels to break up.

I bust my arse so that I can get somewhere in life, so why am I not there yet?
