No chance to get pregnant but I will recommend not to have sex during periods as it is unhygienic and strong chances for ladies to have pid or uterine swelling leading to persistent lower abdominal pain due to weak uterus during periods.

BHMS
Homeopath,
White discharge also know as leucorrhoea is very common condition that has been experienced by so many women. That are number of reason that causes white discharges. Some of them are 1. Infection from bacteria, fungi or other parasites. 2. Lack of cleanliness or poor hygienic measure. 3. Following a diet that is low in nutrition. 4. Use of spray, lubricants or jellies. Please try below mention tips: 1. Clean the vaginal area with freshly squeezed lemon juice and water 2. Eat one or even two ripe bananas on a daily basis. 3. Soak some coriander seeds in water overnight and drink the water, after straining it, on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning. For effective management of white discharge and complete medicinal treatment consult me on private chat.

Best option is female sterilzation or family planning operation. Second best option is copper t which is most effective and no pills are needed. Next best option is oc pills like novelon or femilon to be taken from d2 for 21 days in a month.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Working hard when tired is not good for your health. Doing mental or physical work while exhausted may harm your health, according to a study from University of Alabama at Birmingham and published in International Journal of Psychophysiology.

In the study, fatigued people had bigger spikes in blood pressure compared to well-rested people while doing a memorization test.

When fatigued people regard a task as worthwhile and achievable, they increase their effort to compensate for their diminished capability. As a result, the blood pressure of a tired person increases and remains elevated until the task is completed or the person gives up.

In this study, Wright and colleagues told 80 volunteers they could win a modest prize by memorizing 2 to 6 nonsense trigrams (meaningless, three?letter sequences) within two minutes. Compared to volunteers with low levels of fatigue, those with moderate fatigue had stronger blood pressure while doing the two?trigram memorization task.

Most important symptom of pregnancy is missed period. If you have a missed period then you should get urine pregnancy test done at home after 7 days of missed period to confirm it. If it comes negative then you should keep repeating it every week till you get your menses. As you have regular sex, it is better you use oc pills for 21 days after next menses to avoid these kind of problems.
