my last period started on dec. 25 and ended on jan 1st. I was overseas and on jan 12 had sex and the condom slipped off at some point. He pulled out before ejaculation. I flew home the next day, and this whole week i have been having lower abdominal pains. I started my period on Jan 20th, one week early. could i be pregnant?
Hi! I always advise a pregnancy test, whenever there is anything unusual about the cycle. Since yours was early, I would suggest the test if you were my own patient. I think it is MORE likely that the stress of travel is the cause for the early period if what you say is true. if a test is negative now, I would suggest repeating in one week. Good luck! Dr B
