That would not be: An ideal time to try to become pregnant. However, if you don't wish to become pregnant use protection every time you have sex.

A 26-year-old female asked:

Im currently trying to get pregnant but from ovulation to period is 8 days, every month. Is this too short for any chance of pregnancy?

Luteal phases: The luteal phase of the menstrual cycle, when progesterone is being secreted by the corpus luteum post ovulation, is usually 14 days. Either ovulation is not occurring or this phase is too short due to deficiency. A Fertility GYN MD visit can determine which is which.
