User avatar It's possible she could have gotten pregnant, but the risk is very small. A woman's fertile time is usually on day 14 of her cycle. 2 weeks after her period. Being that she had her period last week,and semen can stay in the body for up to 5 days, it is possible that she could get pregnant. But as I said, the chance of that happening when you did not ejaculate inside her is small.

You just need to wait until her next expected period. Take a home pregnancy test if she does not get her period on time. If the test is negative, wait a week and retest. If her period still has not arrived, then she should see a doctor for a pregnancy test, or to determie the cause of her late period.
