No.
The most fertile time is after she has ovulated (about 8-10 days after the first day of her period).
It is possible to get pregnant at any time during the cycle though. Every woman is different.
Hope this helps.

ok sorry ovulation is usually at day 12-14.
Day 1 = first day of her period.
The egg is released after her period is over.

It depends on how long your cycles are,and how long your period lasted.

Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday does not really mean anything.

When using condoms or birth control pills. The rest of the time safety is relative. There are more safe times, and less safe times, never absolutely safe times.

The safest times are from 10 days before her next menstruation until the last day of her period. If she has cycles less than 22 days, there may be no safer days.

Menstruation does not take place 14 days after your last period, unless you have perfect 28 day cycles.

The magical formula is between 16 and 12 days before your NEXT period. Average 14 days before.

Ovulation takes 15 minutes, and once your egg is out, it stays alive for 8 to 24 hours. So that is the time his sperm can fertilize your egg. His sperm can stay alive inside your body, waiting for your egg forum to 5 days. So if you ovulate in that 5 days after he ejaculated inside you, you have a chance of getting pregnant.

The chance of pregnancy is actually fairly low. Only about 30%. Even if Heis fresh sperm meets your alive egg.

urgent question
I believe my girlfriends period was last week wednesday, lasting until friday. We had unprotected sex yesterday, approximately 12 days after the beginning of her last period, however only a portion of the semen could have entered her. Should I be afraid?

Yes, if semen got into her vagina. There is a good chance that day 12 of her cycle is a fertile day.

It's my understanding that 3 days before her cycle takes place and 3 days after her cycle has ended is the most fertile time.

Fortunately not. Fertility and menstruation are at opposite ends of a woman's cycle.

OK I was off by a day or two but there is a time before and after a women's cycle begins and ends. Here's the info that I have from net doctor UK Kristigraham:Not only this but if the egg is in the uteus wall, which is 3 days afterwards I highly doubt that day 7 is a magical day. And the time frames vary due to women's cycle's being different. Below is says two days before and seven days after. So in reality it's 2 days before and 7 days after, but there is a time frame before and after a women's monthly cycle she can conceive.
I would remind you to back up information with data.

The average menstrual cycle is 28-days - that is counting day one as the first day of menstrual bleeding then the next period is due to start 28 days later.

The period comes because an egg fails to get fertilised. The period comes about 12 to 14 days after the egg is produced.

Therefore, in the average 28 day cycle the egg is produced around day 14. Sperms can live happily 48 hours in the vagina or the uterus so the most fertile time is day 12 to day 16.

The least likely time to conceive is from day one to day seven. If your cycle is different from 28 days on average you have to adjust the calculations - the important thing to remember is that the egg is produced about 14 days before the next period starts.

I am not sure what you are arguing about? You said a woman is most fertile 3 days before her period, and 3 days after her period. I merely pointed out that that is incorrect. She is not fertile for at least 10 days before her period, and very unlikely to be fertile for the first 3 days after her period unless she has a very long flow.

I see you have now done your research and what you wrote now is correct.

It is not normally a fertile day. It is not impossible to get pregnant then, but it is very unlikely.

95% of women ovulate between 12amd 16 days before menstruation. The fertile week starts around 5 days before ovulation, and ends a day after ovulation.
