Could I still have gotten pregnant?

My boyfriend and decided to have a baby. He came inside of me and three days later i began my menstrual cycle which arrived 5 days earlier than it did last month. Could I still have gotten pregnant even though I began my period?

ello! Welcome on eHealth forum and hope you find a satisfactory answer to your query!

If you got your periods just three days after trying, then chances of pregnancy are pretty remote. To try for a baby, you must be very close to ovulation. It is best to buy an ovulation prediction kit and try close to ovulation date. Hope this helps. Take care!
