Welcome to ehealthforum,
If your menstrual cycles are irregular, it is difficult to predict your exact ovulation time and your next period dates. Although irregular menstrual cycles are associated with anovulatory menstrual cycles, occasional ovulation is possible (that explains how women with irregular periods get pregnant). It is considered important that you have regular periods if you are trying to conceive (as it indicates periodic and regular ovulation and helps with timing your intercourse for fruitful results). If you have been trying for pregnancy, consider monitoring cervical mucus changes, cervix position, and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation (along with the follicular study if required) and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Do not change positions immediately after ejaculation, put pillows under buttocks to minimize semen spill, and avoid getting up within 30 minutes of ejaculation. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. If you have not been successful in your pregnancy plans within 6 months to 1 year’s time of trying, you should consider getting a complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. Hormonal derangements, problems involving ovaries and ovulation, uterine problems, tubal blocks, cervical or vaginal infections, post-contraceptive ovarian failure/suppression, LPD, etc., should be ruled out for you. For your partner, semen analysis should be done to rule out infections and to confirm the quality and quantity of sperms produced, as well as rule out other factors that can affect sperm morphology and motility (especially rule out acrosomal protein defect if all other parameters are normal). Treatment as indicated (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get pregnant. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance and be in regular follow-up and monitoring as instructed and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.

Thank you very much for the response.

The situation is as follows;

i had intercourse with my husband on the 7th of January. As mentioned, i had my period on 23rd Dec to 27th and only came once on every 3 - 4 months.

Firstly he was on the missionary position for 30 secs and ended up with me being on top him (cowgirl) and he didnt ejaculate in me. He uses the pull-out technique. As far as i concerned, pre-ejaculate has a little sperm in it if he did ejaculate before. Based on the situation above am i having a possibility to get pregnant?

By the way, i went to a doctor last year, and he mentioned that i've a lining with 5mm and he said that the chances for me to get pregnant is very low.
