When is the. Best time to have sex without getting pregnant??

In a couple years: Believe it or not, a woman can get pregnant from sex even DURING her period! Timing sexual intercourse to avoid the fertile time period (you can go to Planned Parenthood website to learn how) still leaves about a 10 percent chance of getting pregnant in a year (higher if not practiced perfectly). I recommend two forms of birth control (such as pill/condom) or waiting until you are ready for baby ...Read more

I was just wondering when am I least fertile and when is the best time to have sex without getting pregnant?

No time :): Actually, right after your menses would be the least likely time to conceive. With age, we become less fertile but if you really don't want to become pregnant then some method of birth control would be recommended even if it is just condoms. Have you considered sterilization if you don't want to take hormones? ...Read more

What are the chances of getting pregnant if you only take the pill after having intercourse, and not any other time?

What are the chances of getting pregnant if you only take the pill after having intercourse, and not any other time?

Very good: Taking the pill only after intercourse? That will not work. The birth control pill must be taken daily and consistently to suppress the ovaries and block ovulation. Taking it any other way than how it was prescribed is not going to work. Consider using a different birth control method that you might like better. ...Read more

I took an option-72 pill within 12 hrs of an intercourse on june 10. Are there chances of getting pregnant. Still didn''t get any withdrawal bleeding.

99% effective: Withdrawal bleeding may take a few days to occur. For peace of mind, do a pregnancy test 7 and 14 days after the intercourse in question (second one to be done if first one is negative). Also, use consistent contraception if you want to avoid pregnancy. ...Read more

Had intercourse on ovulation night on the 7th can't get the morning after pill until the 11th what are my chances of not getting pregnant?

Had intercourse on ovulation night on the 7th can't get the morning after pill until the 11th what are my chances of not getting pregnant?

~85% chance it works: Some thoughts... Consider taking a morning-after pill as soon as possible, because the sooner the better. If no normal regular period comes in a couple of weeks, one can consider checking a urine pregnancy test. If having sex and not on a birth control pill or other reliable method, then a woman should always carry condoms wherever she goes (that means keeping them in her purse, pocket, etc...). ...Read more

Me and my boyfriend had intercourse october 6, 7, 8, 9 and I ovulate october 10 what is the odd of me getting pregnant this month?

Can't really tell: If a couple is normal and fertile, then daily sex just before and during ovulation is a good way to get pregnant. A urine pregnancy can be done after missing a period, or 2-3 weeks after having sex if periods are irregular and unpredictable. At those times, the test is quite accurate (if done correctly and read correctly). ...Read more
