Hi, your sexual intercourse

Hi, your sexual intercourse didn't fall into what we consider the traditional window for possible pregnancy but you will find cases where it has happened due to irregular ovulation. It is best to always use contraception if you do not desire to become pregnant. If you wish to use the rhythm method, which has a high failure rate and which I cannot recommend, ask your gynecologist for guidance on when to avoid intercourse. It doesn't sound like your period is all that late this month; be aware that extreme stress (such as worrying about unintended pregnancy) can sometimes cause irregularity. I wish you the best.
