A woman can become pregnant from having sexual intercourse during menstruation. In fact, recent research conducted by the United States National Institutes of Health (NIH) suggests that women have the potential to become pregnant at virtually any time during their cycle. While the chance of pregnancy is greater on certain days of a woman's cycle, it is never completely absent.

While the rhythm method may be appropriate for couples trying to become pregnant, it often fails when used to avoid pregnancy. Dr. Allen J. Wilcox of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences even goes so far as to say that the rhythm method does not offer a significant advantage to couples trying to conceive. According to Dr. Wilcox, couples who simply have unprotected sex on a regular basis have as much of a chance of conceiving as those who wait for fertile windows.

A woman's cycle begins on the first day of menstruation, which is counted as day one. Traditionally, days 10 to 17 are said to be a woman's most fertile period. However, this is based on the idea of a very regular cycle, lasting 28 days, with ovulation occurring on day 14. In reality, few women are this regular; only 30% of women fit this model. In addition, even women with regular cycles do not always ovulate at the same time each cycle.


A woman's fertile period lasts for about a week each month. Sperm can survive in the cervix for up to a week, and the egg is viable for 24 to 48 hours after ovulation. The problem is that ovulation is highly unpredictable. Teenagers as well as women nearing menopause - two groups that are less likely to desire pregnancy - have the most irregular menstruation cycles. Thyroid disease also contributes to irregular cycles.

In the 2005 NIH study, Wilcox and his colleagues studied the menstruation cycles of 213 women, most between the ages of 25 and 35, when a woman's cycles are most likely to be regular. They found that a woman's fertile period can extend to the day when menstruation is predicted to begin. In addition, they found that a woman can become fertile as early as day 4 of her cycle, and that 17% are fertile by day 7. Therefore, menstruation is no guarantee that a woman will not become pregnant when engaging in sexual intercourse.

Thank you for the response. I guess although waiting is agonizing, I have no choice. However, it is nice to hear back from someone so quickly so, thanks again!

@anon142237: As I understand it, the longest time the average sperm cell can survive in a woman's body is 72 hours. So, it's unlikely you would be pregnant from before your period. In any case, the blood flow from your period would almost certainly have washed any sperm cells out with it.

Nevertheless, to set your mind at ease, and because few things are impossible, wait a few weeks and take a home pregnancy test.

Okay so here's my story: My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex many times right before my period was due. So, I still got my period about a day after the last time. My question is, now that the last period is over could I still be pregnant from that last time or two, like if the sperm was waiting there while I had my period? I normally have very irregular periods which is why I'm unsure.

Post 474

I took a next day pill like three weeks ago, then I started feeling like pregnancy symptoms. i had some bleeding one week ago, and I thought it was my period but it like spotting. after that i didn't feel the symptoms anymore.

Now on the 10th I'm supposed to be getting my period, and I'm usually very exact on the date, but I'm not getting it and I don't feel like I will anytime soon. I mean, no cramps, no back pain or anything. Is there a chance there i might be pregnant? Should I have pregnancy symptoms now? Because i really don't feel like I am and I've been pregnant before. When do the pregnancy symptoms start?

My last period was in October and i had unprotected intercourse during the at the end of my period, twice.

but we used the withdrawal method and he ejaculated on a towel.

I've traveled abroad after and I met my past boyfriend we got back together, and had the first intercourse in middle October and many times till November, and he ejaculated inside me every time we have sex. I was supposed to have my next period then but I've checked, and I'm pregnant.

I'm so confused. Who's the father of my child? Hope someone who could help me soon, will appreciate it. thanks

Post 458

okay so i had sex on like the last day of my period. we used the withdrawal method and he ejaculated on a towel. i did take the morning after pill that day. what are the chances of me getting pregnant?

Post 457

Yes you can get pregnant. But it depends when you ovulate, and if you have regular or irregular periods. I'm guessing regular since you are on a pill.

Normally, a female ovulates about 13 days after her period has started, counting the first day of your period as day one. Normally, signs of pregnancy don't occur until about six weeks after. So it's probably in your head if it's bothering you a lot.

Take a test a week from the day of intercourse and then another one about a week later just in case. Chances of pregnancy are highest at the end of your period.

Post 456

So i had sex on the 1st day of my period and he ejaculated inside me, and i missed the last pill of my packet. Can i get prego from that? what are the chances? i don't know whether it's me but i haven't been feeling well. It's been about four days so it's probably all in my head. but if someone wants to give me some insight it would be awesome! --fernla930

@anon136357: There is an 8 percent failure rate to a pill contraceptive. You could be but it's unlikely. It's birth control. If you want to have a baby you should stop taking it. After I stopped taking my pills which I took for over a year, it took me about a year to get pregnant which is usually how they say it happens, but everyone is different. Good luck.

Post 453

my boyfriend and I know we want a baby and we concocted a 'contract' for when we want to have one. well, for the first time, i let him ejaculate inside me, with no condom, but I'm on the pill. today's the day I'm supposed to start my period and I was just wondering if i could still get pregnant?

Post 452

My boyfriend and I had intercourse the day before I ovulated. I always know when it's that time for me. I'm only wondering if I could end up pregnant, even though he used the withdrawal method, but he put it right back in me about a minute later. I ovulated the next morning.

Post 451

@Amypollick: thank you. Now I have another question, an d I'm not sure if you can help. You see I was expecting my period the 4th of this month but I didn't get it until the 15th. I noticed that it was a very light red, but also a brownish color. My "period" was so light I did not even need a pad. On the 17th it got a little heavier, light in color, but still no need for a pad. And by around 11 p.m. it was gone. No sign of it.

The next morning the same thing, nothing, its gone. My question is, do you think it was implantation bleeding?

Post 445

My boyfriend and I had sex a week or a little over by a week and like two or three days before I was supposed to be on my period. I started my period yesterday, but my question is, is there a chance I could still become pregnant?

Post 444

@Sparkie08: While I appreciate you asking for my advice, I am not a doctor, so I really cannot give you medical assistance. Everything depends on your particular ovulation cycle; every woman is a little different.

The only thing I can tell you is to wait about three or four weeks or so and take a pregnancy test. Sure, you *could* be pregnant, but only time will tell you if you are.

Since you do want to get pregnant, good luck and I wish for you a happy, healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby!

Post 443

Mrs. Amypollick, I don't know if you can help me or not, but I'd like your advice. I got my period recently on the 6th and on the 8th I had unprotected intercourse with my fiance. The next day it happened again. I was still on my period, bleeding slightly since the first day I got it. My period ended the 13th and I once again had unprotected sex with my partner on Monday night, Tuesday morning and night, Wednesday morning and night, and lastly Thursday morning.

Each time we were together he ejaculated inside of me. We used a position in which the sperm wouldn't drip out and after finishing, I would not go running to the rest room

or anything. I just laid there on our bed. Are my chances of getting pregnant high? I am seeking pregnancy, I just want to know if I will get pregnant this time around. I would appreciate it greatly if you gave me your advice.

@anon124910: I'm going to make the assumption you were speaking directly to me in your comments, since I've been pretty vocal on here. That's fine. I don't really care.

I have not put anyone down in any of my posts. I haven't said they were bad people, or immoral, or anything of the kind. However, due to whatever circumstances, they were pitifully ignorant and my intent was to give them real-life information. They didn't seem to be reading the article, or they didn't understand what they were reading, so I put it in plain English.

You were lucky: you have a sister who helped you along with your situation. However, obviously, many of these girls are not so lucky. And

if they are going to get on the internet for a serious situation like this, then they need someone who is willing to tell them the truth. Apparently, unlike your supposition, they do *not* understand that unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy any time. This is why they are asking the questions.

Something else: stress does not always cause periods to cease. Sometimes, extreme stress can lengthen periods. I experienced that myself in my early 20s, when I was under considerable stress and had a period on and off for over six weeks. I went to the gynecologist, who informed me that stress can have that effect. When I was out of the stressful situation, my periods returned to normal almost immediately.

A typical human supposition is, "It won't happen to me. It might happen to other people but it won't happen to me." This, of course, is bunk. It can happen to anyone, and people need to know that.

Girls (especially younger girls) need to know they are usually going to be the ones primarily responsible for birth control, and if they are going to take on the responsibility of having sex, they've got to take responsibility for their bodies and the possible consequences, as well.

Obviously, some of these women are not educated at all about sexuality or their bodies. U.S. schools are supposed to be teaching sex education, but apparently, these girls aren't getting the information they need. Some posts are apparently from countries where sex ed isn't taught at all, so this is new information. All they may have learned are myths and old wives' tales. The first thing anyone absolutely must learn about sex is that, if you have unprotected sex, you're rolling the dice. That has to be the number one idea. The exigence of using protection comes from understanding that one very important concept thoroughly, and obviously, this is a concept many of these girls have never heard or understood.

I have been straightforward and plain-spoken, but never have I personally attacked these posters. I'm 42, by the way, and have been married for 14 years.

I am not a medical professional and have never said I was. I always advise women to go to the doctor if they have questions about their bodies. And you know what? If their doctors are worth anything, they will tell them the same thing I did. My doctor told me that the first time I went to see her about getting on the pill. I knew it already, but didn't feel my doc was passing judgment on me. And I'm not passing judgment on anyone. I'm giving them solid information, and if it helps one young woman avoid an unwanted pregnancy, then I can sleep well at night. Good luck, peace and blessings to you and your daughter.

@Barbie: I would make and keep that doctor's appointment. It's really too soon to tell if you're pregnant or not, but it sounds like a doctor's appointment might be a good idea. I don't know what might be going on, but you are obviously concerned and need to see a doctor, to put your mind at ease as much as anything else. Good luck!

Post 438

I'm always a seven day period kind of girl. well me and my husband decided we wanted another baby. We had sex unprotected, and i had a four day period. why is this? Am i pregnant?

Post 437

I am disgustingly disappointed in some of you! Wow. First of all, why are people replying to people so rudely? Yes, we all know unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy but these people are genuinely concerned and some of them have no one else to ask or talk to, so swallow your pride and ignorance and show some compassion if you're going to answer a question. I don't know but i was always raised with the "if you have nothing good to say don't say anything at all" notion. but that was just me. I did have questions and fears but I'm too freaking scared to ask them because I'm worried ill get "cyber yelled at" by people who don't

know me or my situation. So here's some clarification for everyone with the questions.

Sex is a complicated thing and what makes it more complicated and hard to deal with is how sensitive of a subject it is. Many people are too embarrassed or shy to talk about it to family and friends and therefore they don't understand a lot of what happens before, during, and after there periods. Don't be ashamed!

Also, if you have had sex and you're worried or scared about being pregnant, relax! When you are really stressed out your period stays away, so just take a couple of deep breaths and try to connect with any support service you can find (that way you aren't getting negatively preached by some of the people on here. i repeat – some – and feeling like an idiot).

Next thing you have to do is inform your boyfriend/husband depending on the situation. After you're both aware of what's going on or you have at least told someone then just take day by day as calm as you can (easier said then done i know), and if you are late for a period don't panic. Remember: the more you panic the more your period will stay away! Just relax and wait a week or so. If there is still no sign of a period then go and take a home pregnancy test. If you don't have the money to get one, then go to your local urgent care or doctor's office and get a test done with them.

I am 25 years old and i was pregnant at 16. I was petrified! Thankfully, i had my sister to talk to and be able to calm me down. I love my daughter to death and she is my life. so just remember, if it happens it happens. You always have options and you have to find the one that fits you and your partner best. Do not let anyone put you down or make you think less of yourself! There are worse things you could be doing, such as committing crimes, doing drugs, sitting in jail.. You are not alone, and if you have questions about your body or sexuality, don't ask these guys. Ask a professional who knows exactly what they're talking about and who will not make you feel incompetent on the web. Good luck ladies.

I know you've had so many questions Ms. Pollick. But I am about to make a doctor's appointment. I started my period, it usually lasts three to five days. I had sexy with my boyfriend when I thought I was almost off, with very little bleeding. I have been bleeding ever since, which has been over a week -- 10 days to be exact, on top of the four I was bleeding on my period.

It's not a heavy flow, but there is bleeding. He did ejaculate inside of me, and nobody has done that before.

I have concerns that I'm pregnant, and that's why I'm still bleeding. Any input would help me. Thank you very much for your time. -Barbie.

@anon123496: It takes longer than a day or two for the body to begin showing pregnancy symptoms. Most women don't notice too many changes until they've been pregnant at least three or four weeks. Could you be pregnant? Of course you could be. Are you? I don't know and it's too soon for a pregnancy test to pick it up.

The withdrawal method is risky, by the way. Very risky. Use a condom if you're not taking the pill or using another birth control method. Condoms are inexpensive and are available everywhere without a prescription.

My period came in late October, but i made love with my boyfriend the last day of october and suddenly the period come back the past two days. is it possible that I'm pregnant? we used the withdrawal method. Please clarify.

@Anu: There is no "safe" time. Either use protection or don't have sex. A woman's cycle changes too much and can change too quickly to predict a 100 percent "safe" time, every month.

Use protection to lower your chances of becoming pregnant.

Post 422

@yavin1 and Anon121923: Please re-read the first sentence of this article. A woman who is menstruating can certainly get pregnant. Yes, it is very possible. Are you pregnant? It is too soon to tell. You'll have to wait three or four weeks. It takes a while for the body to begin having pregnancy signs that you would notice.

I've said it before on this forum and I'll say it again: Any time, any time, *any* time you have sex and don't use some kind of protection, you could get pregnant. If you don't want to worry for a few weeks about being pregnant, then use protection.

By the way: condoms are cheap, available everywhere, including online, and don't require a

prescription. They're not 100 percent, but they're a heck of a lot better than nothing at all.

It's very simple: if you don't want to get pregnant, either don't have sex at all, or reduce your chances by using protection. Those are your choices. Full stop.

@ Post406: Yes, you can be pregnant. It is certainly possible. Are you pregnant? It's probably too soon to know. I think you have to be at least four weeks along before a pregnancy test will pick it up.

What do you do? You use protection, that's what. You have made the decision to have sex. That means you have to take on the responsibility of using protection. It's free from the health department and condoms are cheap at Wal-Mart.

I've said it before on this article. Every time, every time, *every* time you have unprotected sex, you can become pregnant.

If you are grown up enough to have sex, you need to use protection. End of story.

I have a question that no one has been able to answer for me. I just had a baby preterm due to an incompetent cervix. My little Isaiah didn't make it because he was to preemie.

I am trying to figure out how periods and ovulation work after a delivery. My doctor thinks I might have started my period but it is only just over three weeks postpartum. I was bleeding light brown and now it is a little heavy and red off and on.

Now, if this is a period does it mean that there is definitely no chance I am pregnant? My fiance and I did have sex foolishly twice during my postpartum time. I know, I know

, stupid, but it is hard to not want that closeness together after just losing your child.

We had sex a week before and that night before I started bleeding red. So, is there chance of pregnancy or no? Before my delivery i had a normal 28 days cycle so. I always ovulated according to the books but i know pregnancy can change that.

I had unprotected sex during my third day of menstruation. The blood flow is very light. What are the chances of me becoming pregnant? Thanks.

Post 400

Ever since I started my period, it has never been regular. I usually only got it once every two or three months, and very lightly. Last year, I started taking BC, and my periods started coming every month, like clockwork. However, I was bleeding for 1.5 weeks at a time, and it was happening twice a month. So, I stopped taking it. My boyfriend and I have sex regularly, always protected, but sometimes we start unprotected, then when he gets close to climax, he puts a condom on, and the condom has broken a few times.

My question is: up until this month my periods have been coming regularly. However, I am two weeks late this month. I am wondering if this is just my body reverting back to its normal cycle, or if I could be pregnant? Please help.

I had sex the day I started my period. the guy didn't ejaculate in me but before we started he had a little and then stuck it in without a condom.

My period changed severely and I was on it for ten days instead of five and seven of those days were just spotting. Could this mean I'm pregnant and when is the earliest I can take a home pregnancy test with it showing the correct answer? My next due period is in early september, but I have had a lot of the signs listed on the internet.

I had unprotected sex during my menstruation and got pregnant. So please, always use contraception.

Post 381

I am on the pill and take it religiously every day at the same time. I have yet to miss a day. I understand all the methods in which BC prevents pregnancy yet i am uncertain about one thing. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex today (not ejaculating inside me), and tomorrow I am scheduled to start my period.

I understand that the pill blocks ovulation or the attachment of sperm to an egg. So my question basically is this: Can I have unprotected sex one day before my scheduled period without a risk of getting pregnant, or do I need to take some precaution to avoid pregnancy since tomorrow I will not have a scheduled BC pill and sperm can live in the body for some time?

I want to ask a question which is deriving me crazy. i got married a month a go and delayed my periods by medicine because of the wedding night. After a week i got my periods since i stopped taking medicines sometime after my wedding night.

Now that my period is over I'm having intercourse with my husband since then but now on my real date i got periods, too. Why didn't i get pregnant?

There are some changes near my nipple. it hurts when he touches it hard, but it was not happening earlier. Please help. I'm worried a lot and so is my husband. Please help.

@Anon103287: A little quick research turned up that the morning-after pill can cause a change to your periods, including making them come earlier, later, or be heavier or lighter. So apparently, some change is possible. Talk to your doctor to confirm this.

Also, condoms do break occasionally, so make sure you check the expiration date on the box (yes, condoms do have expiration dates) because the latex can weaken over time. Also, make sure you're using only a water-based lubricant, since petroleum-based lubricants (like vaseline) can cause the latex to weaken and/or break.

Always speak to your doc or health care provider about side effects for any medications.

Post 373

I have a question and it would be super if someone could answer.

Well i had sex with my boyfriend and the condom split and i took the morning after pill, then my period came one day later and only lasted like two days, so i was just wondering could the pill have not worked because my period came so soon and only lasted two days at the most.

This probably sounds like a stupid question but an answer would be awesome! Thanks.

I'm concerned. i read and hear different things about the when the highest chances of pregnancies are. my husband and i decided to try to conceive this last saturday night and early sunday. i am having slight bleeding that is on and off, and it started today around 2 p.m. It's not heavy and i am not experiencing any cramps.

My last menstrual cycle started on July 15 and lasted the full seven days and it usually is very heavy the first couple of days, along with cramping. are the chances of me being pregnant high? and if so is the bleeding normal?

@anon102160: A woman's blood flow during menstruation will stop and start. It's not a constant, flowing stream.

It also usually takes at least several hours for the sperm to travel into the uterus and up the fallopian tube to fertilize the egg, if one is available.

Is she pregnant? Too soon to tell. As I've said numerous times in this forum, sex without protection is rolling the dice, every time. And it only takes once for the dice to come up snake eyes.

@Anon101663: It takes longer than a week for pregnancy symptoms to show up. Most women don't know for at least three or four weeks, and some not until they skip their first period.

I don't think you can get pregnant if you had sex during or after your menstruation. I have been doing this for years with my husband and never got pregnant. Is not that I can't because I can have children but I don't, so in my opinion you just can't get pregnant during or after your menstruation.

Post 351

@Anon99654: Try not to worry. A woman's cycle can change at any time, with or without notice. Stress, illness, medications --almost anything can cause a bump in that particular road. A week is probably nothing to worry about. If you've been on the pill or other hormone meds and have stopped taking them, that can cause a change in your cycle.

Give it a couple of months and see if you are still off-schedule, and then maybe call your doc. One week early in one month is probably no big deal. Try not to worry. You're probably just fine.

Post 348

@Anon98081: Could your girlfriend be pregnant? Of course! Re-read the article. Is she? You'll just have to wait and see.

The easiest way, by far, to avoid pregnancy is free and 100 percent effective. What is it? Don't have sex! Yeah, yeah, I know. It's your bodies, yadda, yadda. But the point, all moral issues aside, is that abstinence is the only 100 percent effective method. If you do not know this, then you are not responsible enough to be having sex. And sex is a responsibility. It has a strong emotional component and the possibility of creating a new life. These issues cannot be pushed aside.

If you're going to have sex, then you need to use protection. And

the responsibility falls on both partners. Birth control pills and Depo-Provera injections are probably the most effective, but besides that, condoms, when properly used, are very effective. There are also methods such as the Nuva-Ring and IUDs. Condoms are certainly the cheapest method, and they are available everywhere without a prescription. But you have to use them properly.

Sorry if I sound preachy, but this is serious.

I have three children, I had my first young, and the other two were also a surprise. My first born was conceived only a few days after my period ended, and the second child was conceived during my period.

Following "my ovulation chart", I tried to time things as it says. Six years later my third was conceived two weeks before my expected period.

Just proof that over time when you ovulate can change.

I am sad to read how many young girls and boys really have no idea what they are doing. Sex is pretty obvious to figure, the action that is. But there is a lot of mental and emotional responsibility to take into consideration when having sex.

Stop spreading diseases and try to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Use protection. Nowadays, there is absolutely no excuse!

Post 328

No, you are not pregnant. During your period,your endometrium wall breaks down. There can no longer be implantation of a fertilized egg. Furthermore, there may not even be an egg to fertilize in the first place!

Moreover, sperm may not be able to survive in the hostile environment that is the bleeding vagina.

There's more resistance.

You have to stop being paranoid. If you can't, stop having unprotected intercourse!

Post 317

@julius01: If you do not use protection, there are no 100 percent "safe" days to have sex. There are days when the chance of pregnancy is certainly lower than at others, but unless the woman is incapable of becoming pregnant, there is never a zero chance, without using protection.

A woman's cycle can change without notice, without warning, and she could be ovulating the day after her period ends. It's rare, but it happens. And it can happen to any woman, at any time.

In fact, the article says, "women have the potential to become pregnant at virtually any time during their cycle. While the chance of pregnancy is greater on certain days of a woman's cycle, it is never

completely absent." This means exactly what it says.

Because a woman's cycle can change from month to month, it is impossible to pinpoint "safe" days without a blood test that checks hormone levels.

So just take the easiest, most sensible course of action: *use protection!* Don't roll the dice on which are "safe" days. Condoms and other non-prescription methods of protection are available everywhere.

Post 300

What a silly question; of course you can get pregnant during menstruation, and for all you people who have sex during the period, yuck! That's freaking disgusting, I'm sorry. Dirty, dirty, dirty!

Anyway, the safest times are within two to three days before the start of the period and also two to three days after the end of the bleeding. Keep in mind how long the sperm can generally survive inside the woman's body (only about four or five days) and how long the ovum is available to be fertilized (up to two days at most).

Women are most fertile a few days before ovulation (middle between periods) through a day or two after. So don't have sex during this time if you're not ready to be a parent. Cheers!

Me and my husband had unprotected sex at the beginning of my period, which, for the first time, lasted for a few days. I had my last period on the 24th of last month. Today is the 26th of the fallowing month and I have no signs of ovulation or any premenstrual signs that I normally get prior to my period.

However, about two weeks ago, I had this spotting which was very dark red blood, which lasted about two days. It was not heavy, but was very unusual.

Ever since then, I keep getting these constant lower abdominal cramps. At times they make me so happy, believing it is my period, but keep being disappointed over and over again. I'm so scared to do a pregnancy test because of my fear of what the results may be, as neither of us are ready for children as yet. Could I be pregnant? Help me please.

Post 286

My periods can be between 28-32 days, my last one was the early part of this month so i should have started ovulating between 13th-22nd. i always get EWCM at ovulation as i used to use opks and it always came with a positive.

The problem is that me and my partner had unprotected sex on the 11th and instead of getting signs of ovulating i have had constant creamy discharge. There's no reason why i should have skipped this month ovulating and i feel it's a bit of a coincidence it happening the same month we didn't use protection.

I did a test this morning and it was negative, but at the earliest i will only start my period

in five days so was it too early to get an accurate result if i am pregnant, it was just a £4 test from asda.

So i am wondering if its possible that i have conceived from the 11th and that's why i am not getting ovulation signs because it's fertilized?

thanks, emma.

@Anon85587: I don't know much about doing an ovulation chart, except to tell you that contacting someone who knows about the Natural Family Planning method might have some ideas.

What I can tell you is, that while 28 days is *average," it can vary widely. When I was in my late teens/early 20s, my cycles ran 32-38 days and I'd have a period for eight days. Yuck. I had a period every month, but not always at the same time. So running a 30-32 day cycle is not at all unusual.

I suggest you start keeping a log of your periods for at least six months, which will give you a much better idea of how long your cycles actually

are. Start from the first day of your period and count until the first day of your next period. Six months ought to give you a pretty good handle on your actual cycle length, which will help you do a more accurate ovulation chart. Good luck!

OK, well, first off i found this site by accident, but I'm glad I found it nonetheless.

my problem is simple. my last period was in mid-April, which is fine, but from what i read a "normal" cycle is 28 days. if that's the case then i should have gotten my period a couple of days ago.

i started having my period when i was 8 (I'm 20 now) and i never really paid attention to whether it was normal or not (i was just happy when i didn't get it) until lately.

My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for the past year and a half and now my cycle length is starting to become

an issue because i still don't understand it.

i know I'm not pregnant now, so i know that's not why i missed it, but my question is if my cycle isn't regular, how do i find (make) an ovulation chart that works for me so i can finally complete my family? please help!

It's too early to tell since it has only been a few days and I know the stress of it all is only going to complicate things. Should I have something to worry about?

For one whoever said that being pregnant at 17 is wrong, well you are wrong. some people make mistakes, and yes i have as well, but i do not look at my son as a mistake at all.

he will be two next month and i am only 17. yes i had my son at 15 and me and his father are still together. i do advise people to wait. it isn't easy and as fun as most believe.

i knew it would be hard but i took the responsibility and kept my child. me and my boyfriend have jobs and our own apartment and our son is well taken care of.

You just need to grow up and understand the responsibilities you have, and i support any teen who has kept their child and taken care of them.

Post 266

So my boyfriend and I had sex well not really he just rubbed it against me and some liquid came out. he didn't come on me or in me just into a tissue...but it was a full can't I be pregnant?

Yes, yes, yes! You can and may be preggo!

It doesn't matter what, when, how or if you are using protection there is always a chance! So wrap it no matter what he says or what feels better.

You all need to be a little more responsible and take care of your health. The saddest part is no one mentioned maybe having an STI or STD! You should get tested every time you become active with a

new partner and so should they. you should always wear a condom no matter what.

Or how about this? You stop having sex because you are obviously not able to take care of a child since you can't take care of yourself!

Do some research *before* you have sex, not after, and after you're scared and honestly if you're under 18 you shouldn't even be thinking about it because your body probably isn't fully developed yet and you may cause more damage than anything!

Grow up and be responsible!

Hypothetically, say I was raped but I got my period three days after it happened. This was like two months ago and this month's period isn't here yet and it should be. I'm stressing a lot about it and I know that can make you miss your period or make it late, but I was wondering if I can be pregnant if I got my period three days after.

Post 259

It's been three years since I married and i am trying to get pregnant but i have some problems with my period.

What i notice is, every three months i will get my period normally, but the next month i will last for seven to eight days. it will stop for a week then i will get it but for the last three months this has been happening to me.

i am getting my period two times for a month. i just want to know if this is normal. i visited a number of doctors and they say I'm not ovulating. my husband and i really want to have a baby. we both are working at the same place and our co-workers are talking about it. it makes my husband feel embarrassed. we need lots of help because i am getting scared.

Post 258

Stop posting! If you had sex you could be pregnant, end of story! Who the hell knows the odds? Sex is sex, it is used to reproduce! If you don't want a baby, either don't have sex or use birth control!

Better yet, if you are on here posting about it, don't ever have sex as you have no clue about sex and the consequences of its actions. Stop and think, people!

Post 257

Rockem Sock- First off, if you're 17, you have no business being pregnant!

I got pregnant on my 18th birthday and it's way too early. I now have twins at 25.

How are you going to afford this baby? Where are you going to live? You aren't married, so what makes you think the baby's father is going to stick around? Having a baby at such an early age is a huge risk and damages any relationship you have with any guy.

Trust my experience! You *aren't,* I repeat *aren't* ready! Go to college first and get a career going. Babies can come anytime!

@Anon77432: Amen sister, and amen, and amen. You said it. Right on. In other words, I wholeheartedly agree with you. And this, apparently, is where sex education in schools has landed us. From what I've read here, it doesn't look like it's educated people one bit better than they were being educated at home. Amazing, eh?

Post 255

My boyfriend and I are hoping to get pregnant sometime soon so we have been having unprotected sex. My period was extremely light and short last month and now I am only getting spotting. We had sex when I was "ovulating" but I'm not sure my calculations were correct. I have been having symptoms, although not overwhelmingly, but i have taken a few tests and all are negative. Could I be pregnant and it not show up?

Post 253

Here's the deal. My husband and I have been together for five years. For four of those years we did not use protection of any kind, other than the first couple of months, we had sex the day before my period was to start and lo and behold, after all that time I got pregnant.

So you can get pregnant at *any time* when you are having unprotected sex. (And we knew that. We decided if it happened it happened.)

After reading all of these comments and questions, I'm incredibly concerned that women know so little about their bodies and how pregnancy occurs.

If you don't want a baby, either use a form of birth control or don't have sex.

I want to find out about a pregnancy. If a woman of 21 years old is on the ninth day of her menstrual cycle (Day one being the first day she has her menstruation), and her menstrual cycles vary from 25 to 29 days, how likely is she to get pregnant by trying to conceive with her husband on day nine?

I would like to know a percentage of probability. I realize there are other factors, like the man’s fertility the woman’s fertility, etc., but with only this information is it even remotely possible to get pregnant, and if so what is the probability?

I would really like a number such as “the Rhythm Method gives a chance of conception

is nine percent, but the calendar method is 5 percent in a given year.”

A real number like 9 percent or 5 percent is better than just saying “these methods work a whole lot, but anything can happen, nobody knows, maybe one day somebody will invent the study of biology. Until then just don’t kiss a boy while wearing a bathing suit.”

Post 244

my girlfriend and i had sex during the third day of her period and after we finished, we didn't use a condom, but she took the "emergency contraceptive" pill.

my question is: is there any chance that she might still get pregnant? i want to be a dad, and she wants to be a mom, but we think it is still a little too early for us to be parents, no matter how badly we want it.

Either way, though, we will be fine with the outcome.

Post 224

I am a midwife and read all your comments. although all of you have had unprotected sex, you can still prevent unwanted pregnancy. but how? the good news is that there are some pills in the market named "morning after pill" or "emergency contraception".

Whenever you have unprotected sex, you can use these tablets within 72 hours after having intercourse. the usage of these tablets is very easy and you can even ask for directions to use them from pharmacist or pharmacy staffs. But, the important point is that these tablets should not be used as a usual way of prevention. if you have sexual contact, even if it is not always, you have to use a safe method such as condom, oral contraceptive pills or other methods of prevention that suits you.

but, for now, that you have not used any protection, the final choice is to use emergency contraception. good luck

Post 223

Yes, yes, *yes* your girlfriend could be pregnant, whether her dad is a colonel or not. And yes, you could be pregnant, even though your boyfriend pulled out early!

Is it likely? Not terribly. Is is possible? Of course it is!

Here are the biological *facts,* people: anytime you have unprotected sex, the woman can get pregnant. Anytime. Anytime. Yes, on her period.

If you want to prevent pregnancy, you have two choices: protection or abstinence. Abstinence is the only 100 percent guarantee.

Protection, however, is certainly the best option if you're going to have sex. What is *wrong* with you people, anyway, that you refuse to use protection and then panic about pregnancy? When you don't use protection, then

guess what? You have something to worry about.

I just don't understand why so many of these posters don't use protection, and then freak out about the possibility of pregnancy. If you don't use some kind of contraception, that's the price you pay.

Post 212

Roy, yes she might be pregnant. One more time, with feeling: although the chances are certainly lessened during a woman's period, a woman has the potential to get pregnant at any time. If you have unprotected sex, you run the risk. If you use protection, your chances go way down. If you want to avoid the risk altogether, don't have sex. Again, it's not about morals, just biology. It's a risk.

Anon62375: Don't be too sure about that. Every woman's cycle is a little different, and those numbers are just guidelines. They are not set in stone by any means. The lesson here is to use protection *every time* when you have sex. The only 100 percent method of contraception is abstinence. Not moralizing here, just telling it like it is.

If you don't want to run even the slightest risk of getting pregnant, don't have sex. Otherwise, use protection. If you don't, no matter when you have your period, you're rolling the dice. That's as basic as it gets.

crazytalkz, here's the truth: if you keep following that friend's advice, then you're going to be pregnant long before you've been married a year. Guaranteed. When, I don't know, but it's going to happen.

There are other contraceptive methods available besides pills and condoms. I suggest you talk to your doctor about some of them. You could use a diaphragm, IUD or something along those lines. Talk to your doctor.

As I said below, anytime, anytime *anytime* you have unprotected sex, no matter when you had your last period, you risk getting pregnant. That's the law of nature.

Post 156

I have been married for four months. Me and my hubby have planned to have a baby after one year. So, we have been using condoms to avoid pregnancy and I am not interested in using contraceptive pills since it's not good for my health.

But my husband wants to have sex without condoms for more pleasure, so that we took an advice from one of my friends that we can have sex for five days after my periods. So we are following that advice, but now he wants to have sex without condoms daily at least once every two or three days. What shall we do? Is there any time gap that we can have sex after my periods? Please advise me.

Ladies, every woman's cycle is slightly different. Women have been known to get pregnant right before, during and after their periods. There is a "window," but it varies with every woman.

The bottom line, the basic information, the most essential thing to know is this: there are no guarantees. Anytime a woman has unprotected sex, she is taking a risk of getting pregnant. No exceptions, no wiggle room. Anytime, at any point during her cycle, if a woman has unprotected sex, she could become pregnant. Use protection or take the risk. It's that simple.

But the next day there wasn't any bleeding and i haven't bled today. What does this mean? Am i likely to be pregnant?

I'm having an ultrasound, Is it possible to know the weeks of the fetus, to determine the father.

Anon48862: Odds are, the pregnancy is by the second guy, but the only way to know for certain is to have a DNA test done on the baby after it is born. Both potential fathers will contribute a sample and the test should rule one out.

I had unprotected sex 89 hours before I took a pregnancy test that came up positive and I am definitely pregnant. Is that possible that enough hcg would show up in my urine to cause a positive in a home test so early?

Post 118

is it true that having sex increases the size of ones breasts and that it is even possible for someone who is of age, let's say 20 years and above and doesn't have her period for over a month not from any reason (sex) whatsoever but just a break to have sex whenever she likes? Even after a check up it seems there is nothing wrong.

Hi: I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend 4 days after my period. it usually is a 27-day cycle. i got my period on the 11th and finished on the 16th. At the time i had a little sharp pain on my left lower side of my ovary. i kind of think i was ovulating at the time. after sex the discomfort went away, i being feeling a little different. i feel bloated and my breasts feel funny but they don't hurt. i feel over tired, gassy, my stomach feels heavy and i had cramps here and there then they go away, i am not due for my period for another week or so. i took a urine pregnancy test in a clinic but it was only 6 days after the fact and the result was negative. i was told it might be too soon for hcg to show. can i get some help on this topic or advice?

hi, have never been late for my periods, they always came every 28 days, and they always lasted 4-5 days, only heavy on the first 2 days. Three months ago I had unprotected sex, and I took the "morning after pill", the following month I got my period on time for 3-4 days, the next month, my period was late 10 days and it only lasted 2 days, now this month (the third month) my period was late 2 days and it only lasted 2 days also (I have had no sex since 3 months ago, and the pregnancy tests are negative).

Is this secondary effects from the "pill" or can I be pregnant? or is something else wrong? why is my period lasting only 2 days??

Well I had my last period on May 22, 2009 and it lasted for 9 days. Well I had unprotected sex the day after my period Sunday 31, 2009 and then 6 days later Saturday June 6, 2009 when I was certain I was ovulating. I spotted that following week Friday June 12, 2009. Well I took several different kinds of home pregnancy tests, but the tests came back negative.I hadn't had my period in June at all. I showed several signs of pregnancy. But then I started bleeding in July on the 7, 2009 but this was shorter and lighter(my peroid hs been regular for 2 years now). I had sex again uprotected on my sixth day

of my period and my seventh day and I noticed my period had stopped on my 5th day that has never happned and two more pregnancy tests and still all are negative. I will wait for my next period but I'm so confused I still feel as though I am pregnant.

I was just hospitalized with 'endometriosis'. I'm a 29 year old female who's never had children because of the endometriosis. I under went surgery to attempt to cure and get rid of the endometriosis, however, the surgery wasn't successful. The doctor did manage to clear out the right ovary, though the left one still doesn't work due to the endometriosis. I'm currently on an 'injection' to stop the production of estrogen in attempt's to starve out the endometriosis in hope's that it will die, and new cells can produce. Although, the doctor advised me to stop my birth control pills so the injection will be more effective. In the process, my boyfriend and I, began using protection on a regular

basis, just in case I can still get pregnant. Even though, the doctor told me that he's never heard of anyone getting pregnant on the injection, yet he advised to still use a method of birth control while I'm off of the pills, and am strictly on the injection. The injection is taken once a month, for 4 month's. What is my percentage of getting pregnant while I'm going through chemically induced menopause? I'm curious so I can continue taking the proper precautions to keep me from getting pregnant during the process of me trying to get rid of the Endo.

Post 93

the fact is..if you had unprotected sex any day of the month, there is a chance you can get pregnant. no one online can tell you if you are pregnant or not, the only way of knowing is taking a test. good luck.

Please help! I usually have heavy periods. This month, my period came probably on time, maybe a little early, and it was lighter than usual. It was like this for about 2 days then I had unprotected sex with my fiance in the shower and now (the next day) *it is gone* 100%. My period usually lasts at least 7-8 days. It has *never* stopped early or gotten light early. I *rarely* get cramps or any discomfort during my period and this time around I have had such terrible stomach and abdominal pains, discomfort, gas and cramps. My breasts are enlarged and sore (which happens most times with my period, so not worried there too much). I'm not on

Birth Control. Also when the bleeding stopped, i started having symptoms of UTI (out of nowhere). Is there *any chance I could be pregnant?* Or is it UTI or just stress?? *Please help!* I do *not* want a baby right now!

I had unprotected sex. I was on my second day of menstruation. I don't usually bleed much during my period. I have my period every month and not exactly every 28 days. I did a pregnancy test two weeks after that sex and it was negative. I tested late at night after a long day of work. I am concerned because two weeks after the intercourse I started to feel strange. I started to feel bloated and always hungry. I find myself nauseating at times during the day and I have been sleeping a lot too because I am always tired, at least more tired than usual. Could I still be pregnant?

Post 34

Gracey, Lxrmusic, Plandi, Rokdemsox - As the article states, you can get pregnant before your period starts, while you're on your period, on the last day of your period, and after your period. Whether you have a regular or irregular cycle does not matter -- you can still get pregnant. While it is less likely that you'll get pregnant after you've started your period (because ovulation typically occurs in the middle of your cycle), it is still possible to get pregnant at any time. If you are not prepared for pregnancy, always use birth control.

Gmbn - The percent chance that you will get pregnant depending on when you had sex in relation to your period can only be determined if you

track your own ovulation.

Madeinchina - While it is uncommon, you can be pregnant and still have your period. If you think you might be pregnant, consult your health care professional. If you are not prepared for pregnancy, use birth control.

Toogi & Stewy84 - If you are properly taking your birth control pills, as instructed by your health care professional, you will not be more likely to get pregnant if you have sex during the week that you are taking the placebo pills.

Dop3y137 - Changes in your menstruation can be normal or it can be a sign of something amiss. The only way to know for sure is to contact your health care professional.

If you are trying to determine the best times to get pregnant, you'll have to chart your ovulation. If you don't know how to chart your ovulation, contact your health care professional, or Anon3641 suggests you can read about the Billings ovulation method.

I had unprotected sex (purposely) with my partner the day after I had stopped bleeding. And also the three days following.

This was about two and a half weeks ago. I know nothing about pregnancy, as I am only 17 and was just wondering, is there any way that I could be pregnant. I still have about 10 days until I start my period. And I am looking up different things about early pregnancy. I didn't even know that someone could get pregnant before the 7-10 days after their period. I was just wanting anyone's advice on how I could approach this situation. and for those of you who have gone through pregnancy, are there any other signs or symptoms that I should expect this early on if I am pregnant?

Thank you!! :)

You can know exactly when you ovulate. Read about the Billings ovulation method. Everyone is different, that is why you should know yourself.
