I'm no doctor but I say you are in the clear from past experience and slight knowledge. She is at the beginning of the menstrual flow phase which lasts about 3-5 days so there is no support for a fertilized egg to attach to the endometrium/uterus. It won't be for at least 8-10 days until she could maybe support a fertilized egg which by then your sperm will be long dead. Also the chances that she released 2 eggs is so slight that your sperm won't encounter an egg. This infomation is probably somewhat not correct but what I'm trying to get at is ---don't worry about it but wait for the doctor to settle your fears.

User avatar Hello Justin,
Jigsaw is right! There is nothing to worry about. Ovulation takes place around 14 days after menstruation. That's when she risks getting pregnant the most.
