You Can Get Pregnant If You Have Sex While On Your Period
Though its a slim chance and depends on how long your cycle is, there is a chance you ovulate while on your period or right after. My dr said if you have a short cycle ( less than 28 days between periods ) then you could get ovulate while you were on your period though its not a huge chance. Hope this helps

Chances Are Very Slim
Hey,
the chances are so slim. The egg only lives for 2-3 days before it deteriorates... And the chances of you being pregnant, are so unlikely. We can't say nothing is possible... Just be more careful. Actually, I asked this same thing last week, and the women said its highly unlikely as well. I just needed to be sure so. I never used protection and I let my bf climax in me, and i'm not. Good luck!

Hey Thanks
Hey, that helped me a lot. I just had sex while I had my period without protection, my boyfriend said he didnt cum in me, but you never know. And I knew that you could get pregnant while you were on your period but I wanted to know how much of a chance. Thanks! :d

I Did Also...
I actually became pregnant the day after my period ended, but the thing is I had sex the day before it started. My cycles are extremely short, so I ovulated earlier, but remember every woman is very different!!

Hi Mora
It's really hard to say...Every woman ovulates at a different time of month..You will see that some women on this forum ovulate on day 7..14..16....So you can see it's hard to tell!! Was there semen in the condom when it broke?? Also there have been so many post on here about how you can't become pregnant while on your period or "right after" but you will see that for example, on this post there are a few of us actually ovulate towards the end of our period's..In my case sperm was already there..But in your situation it is hard to tell..If the condom broke while inside while full of sperm then I would say there is a chance. But if he was already out of you I would say it was slim..But you can never know for sure..I wouldn't worry too much about it..Unless you miss your next period or become even more worried then what you may be now. Hang in there. I hope everything turn's out ok for you.

"i actually became pregnant the day after my period ended, but the thing is I had sex the day before it started. My cycles are extremely short, so I ovulated earlier, but remember every woman is very different!! "






when you say you got pregnant the dayafter your period ended does that mean that you had sex the day after or that the egghad already been there for 2 dyas already.
Becuase i'mconfused when it comes to that type of things.
I had sex 1or 2 days before my period and also I usually last 4-5 dyas on myperiod, my last period wsa the 14th and I started today. Of ocurse there is a 100% chance im not pregnant but still.
Becaause when I first got pregnant I had had my period twice in a month the 1st of nov and the 25th. Any one here happened tothem?

Say you have sex today and in 2 dyas your period starts, does that mean your not prengant or that you are possibly?

Healthj17: say you have sex today and in 2 dyas your period starts, does that mean your not prengant or that you are possibly?

Well thats what happened with me... Im not sure if I am pregnant yet, too scared to take a test.. But I had sex then 2 days later I got my period.. I usually get it for 6-7 days n its really heavy for the first 4 days but when I got my period I only had it for 4 days.. It was really light and was a pinky colour, towards the end turning a bit brown (sorry if thats tmi).. Ive worked it out that im nearly 3 weeks late for my period... Ive had a lot of symptoms n signs of being pregnant but bcoz I had my unusual period I thought that I couldnt be...

What do u think about that??

It is only unlikely for some women. Lots of people get pregnant when on their period. Especially when you are on the pill. This week is the only week that your pill isn't keeping you from ovulating. Sperm can live in your body for 5-7 days. Some say 3-5, some say 3-5, but when I researched it, I found 5-7. So, even if you don't have an egg ready to be fertilized when you have sex, you may 7 days after!
You can get pregnant anytime that you have unprotected sex, or protected sex if the condom breaks. It is against the "ideal woman's cycle" that is all over the place (the whole ovulating on the 14th day of your cycle chart.) but, that is only for some women, and the rest of us are totally different. So, if you don't want to become pregnant then don't have unprotected sex, anytime. Not even on your period.

Yes! Pulling out is not birth control! Guys release pre-cum at various times throughout messing around, or intercourse and you can get pregnant from this also. Plus, when they "pull-out" the chances of them getting out of you before they cum even just a little bit are very slim. If you have unprotected sex at anytime during your cycle then you could be pregnant. Pulling out doesn't matter.
