Unprotected sex, could I be pregnant this old?
An_253841 posted:
I am 43, had unprotected sex with my husband 1 & 2 days after my period had ended. My period duration is usually of 3 days. We had unprotected sex the 4th and 5th days. On the 6th and 7th days, I had ovaries cramps and lower back pain, which has never happened before. On the 8th, 9th and 10th days, I had thick white discharge. It didn't stink, it had no particular odor. It looked like a smeared Hawaiian dessert Haupia, like a smear of liquidy pudding or jello,but white.
I hope I am not pregnant, I don't think I could get pregnant with all my health issues and medications that I take. But it does worry me. I have been less hungry,but wanting ice cream late at night. Since day 7th, I have craved tofu, seaweed, kalamata olives, basil, bone marrow and lavender ice cream.

My health: No kids. Obese. Hx of miscarriages. Currently recovering from diabetic foot ulcer. Sugars controlled with insulin and pills. A1C at 8. Hx of peripheral neuropathy, gastroparesis, and PEs, have clotting factor 5. The only change, that I think could have allowed me to get pregnant, if indeed that is it, is that I have been off of the warfarin and the lovenox for 3 weeks. My INR reads 0.6.

Should I give it a couple of weeks before I take a pregnancy test?

georgiagail responded:
You did have unprotected intercourse and the fact that you are still menstruating is a good sign you are still ovulating. Thus, pregnancy is certainly a possibility.

Wait a few weeks and if menstruation does not show up, take a pregnancy test.
wiz2fuel replied to georgiagail's response:
Thanks for your response Gail. 10-days after menses ended I started period again, this time longer, darker blood and with lots of large clots. 2 periods in one month. No sign of pregnancy. But I'm extremely tired.

tlkittycat1968 replied to wiz2fuel's response:
You did not have two periods in one month, you had abnormal vaginal bleeding. Bleeding twice in one month is not normal (unless you have short cycles) and needs to be checked out by a doctor.
