User avatar Hello,

It sounds like you aren’t using any type of protection. You may be getting ready to start your menstruation, very hard to say at this point. The first step would be for you to get a thorough gynecological check-up, including a pap-smear to check for cervical cancer to make sure all is well with your body before conceiving a baby. If you are pregnant, you can find out how far along and details about the pregnancy but if you aren’t and have started missing periods, you need to get that straightened out.

Definitely talk to your doctor right away about your plans for parenthood or non-parenthood and get YOUR mind and body ready for the changes it is going to go through before continuing on with unprotected intercourse.
