“Can you get pregnant on your period?” and “can you get pregnant right after your period?” are the two frequently asked questions in my blog’s comments.
The answer – yes, it is possible for you to get pregnant while having your period (and right after your menstrual period, too). But conception under these circumstances is highly unlikely for most women, because it involves two key reproductive elements. For one, you must be ovulating early. And two, you have unprotected sex while on your period.
Unprotected sex automatically puts you at risk for pregnancy. Although your chance of getting pregnant on your period is fairly low, it can happen under the right circumstances. Women with shorter menstrual cycles (for example: 21 day cycles) are often at higher risk of getting pregnant on their period.
How Can You Get Pregnant on Your Period?
In order for you to get pregnant on your period, you need to ovulate early. For a majority of women, they ovulate two weeks (or fourteen days) prior to the beginning of their period. During ovulation, your ovaries release a mature egg, which is then quickly swept into the nearest fallopian tube. The egg can stay alive for up to 24 hours after ovulation, and if there’s sperm waiting in the fallopian tube, fertilization and conception can occur.
Women will 28-day cycles will ovulate on day 14. Women with very short menstrual cycles (for example: 21 or 22 day cycles) can ovulate a couple of days after their period begins, and when you consider the fact that sperm can live inside a woman’s body for up to five days, it’s theoretically possible for sperm to survive long enough until ovulation occurs and an egg is available for fertilization. Under this situation, it is possible for a woman to get pregnant on her period.
While it is possible for you to get pregnant on your period, the risk is very, very low for the average woman. When you’re having your period, your ovaries are developing another egg for release later in that cycle. For the average woman, it takes weeks before her eggs are mature enough to be released. But there are a lot of factors that can complicate ovulation, and cause you to ovulate on your period. For example, stress, poor diet, certain medications, hormonal imbalances, thyroid disorders, and lifestyle factors can mess up your ovulation. Unless you’re using an ovulation predicting kit, there is really no way for you to predict whether or not you’ll ovulate early in a certain month. So if you do not want to get pregnant on your period, please use a form of birth control.
Mistaking Spotting for a Regular Period
Some women who have irregular periods can sometimes mistake spotting between their periods for a real menstrual period. Spotting around ovulation is often an ovulation symptom that can go along with one-sided pain (called “middle pain” or mittelschmerz). Light bleeding or spotting can also be the result of breakthrough bleeding – irregular bleeding that can occur within the first few months of using hormonal contraceptives.
When you have unprotected sex when you’re experiencing this spotting, it’s very common for you to get pregnant. You’ll actually think that you got pregnant on your period!
Always Use Birth Control
Because you can get pregnant on your period, it’s always best if you use a form of birth control during sex.
If you think you might be pregnant, take a home pregnancy test. You can pick this up at any pharmacy or grocery store. They are also available online. They’re inexpensive and easy to use. You should know the results in 10 minutes. If you first test negative, and you’re noticing early pregnancy symptoms, wait a week and take another test. Good luck!
I had unprotected sex while on my period, but the few days after my period continued. I haven’t started my period this past month but it’s usually a week or two from now. Can I still be pregnant? Even if I start my period this month?
Cora L. Sanchez says
Read my testimony!!! Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Cora L. Sanchez 30 from UK, my boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 22 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.:

That’s right, waves come and go. But I think it’s more to do with simple demand and supply. As demand of any certain expertise/skill increases at a greater rate than the supply, the value of that supply goes up. A newly liberalized country can will certainly need managerial talent and this results in the enhanced value of MBAs. So I guess the real talent lies in predicting which particular skill will be in short supply in the near future, and enabling oneself to occupy a position of expertise in that function.And, thanks!! 🙂

How To Get Pregnant Quickly - From A Mother's Point Of View - Part 1 says
Diet is simply not always the response, but eating well helps.
Statistics show that over five million American woman and their partners who have had unprotected sex for
at least a year attempting to get pregnant have not been able to conceive.
These women should be aware that even if their fat level
remains the same, it is possible that they will experience something of an extra tummy bulge after their pregnancy.

I had unprotected sex on the tail end of my period two weeks ago. I am currenlty on birth control and have been for 2 months (religiously take my pills). I am concerned I may be pregnant. The only symptoms I am really experiencing are fatigue (but I am stressed, so I know that could be it) and I feel light headed on occasion (maybe cuz I haven’t eaten). I am curious to know if pregnancy is possible, and if so, herbal abortificants? I am afraid to wait to late to start but I do still have 2 weeks before I start my period. Suggestions!? Help?!

DP Nguyen says
I would have sex every 24-48 hours around the time that you ovulate. You have a 28 day cycle, then you should probably start having sex two weeks after your period first begins (so day 14 of your cycle). There are lots of factors that can play a role in whether or not you get pregnant. Try not to be discouraged. Good luck
im a lady of 32 years of age i was using contraceptive(nordette) from june 2009 up to october 2011 now i want a baby but im not going to my periods normally sometimes i skip 3 months in a row but when i test for pregnancy is negative, may you pls help
