similar with mizz_k problem, i am still a virgin, one day my bf and I did the oral sex and he cum in a condom. he wasnt sure if he washed his hand when he took it off or not. about 10 or more minutes later his fingers touched my outside vagina. He thought that its ok because he mustve touched a lot of things before he touched my vagina. The next day i got my period. Could i be pregnant?? i am so scared. when is the best time for me to do a pregnanct test?. thank you!!

You can't have your period and be pregnant.

However, if you checked the site, you would have found this article:

It is very unlikely that you are pregnant, but if you need some peace of mind, a pregnancy test can be taken between 10 and 14 days after the sexual encounter.

But if I am any judge, I'd say you'll be alright.

Kudos to you for using a condom, however, knowing how to properly take it off is just as important as knowing how to use it.

I wouldn't worry either. I understand that you might get a bit freaked out by this, but it's doubtful that there's anything wrong.

actually, it is possible to have your period and be pregnant, also usually it's psychosomatic when that happens. Especially at the beginning of pregnancy, you can definitely get light periods and still be pregnant. I'm not meaning to try and worry you that you are pregant after all; I just thought I'd say. As long as your cycle remains basically unaffected, you should be fine.

Technically, you can't have a full period and remain pregnant, as a period involves shedding the uterine lining.

However, some women do experience light bleeding during pregnancy, which is why confusion can occur.

But fertilistation occurs in the fallopian tubes, and it can then take 2-3 days for the egg to embed itself in the uterine lining. So surely this means that, if you were about to have your period anyway (she was due for the next day and got it), it could technically be possible to have this next period as scheduled but still to have a fertilised egg which could embed in a coupla days' time? I'm no expect; I'm just saying what I know.

Yep, that's correct. And in addition, fertilization itself usually doesn't happen instantaneously.

But pregnancy technically doesn't start until an egg has implanted. After that point, you can't have a proper period and remain pregnant.

However, in this case, it sounds as if the original poster's pregnancy risk is minimal anyway (regardless of when she got her period).

i had a similar scare about 2 months ago, the exact worry and everything. i went to my gynae and explained what happened, and she said that it is highly unlikely that you could get pregnant (based on what you mentioned). i had a pregnancy test there as well, just in case, and it was negative and i also got my period. so i'd say that you're ok, so don't worry~
