 Can a woman get pregnant ten days before and ten days after their period?

Possibly: A normal cycle is 28 days, ovulation is in the middle on day 14. Sperm can live in the female genital tract for up to 5 days so theoretically you could get pregnant both 10 days before and 10 days after your period. However, the best chance of pregnancy is to have sex closer to the time of ovulation. ...Read more

Not likely: A woman menstruates 2 weeks after she ovulates, so if you are regular in your period, than it would be unlikely for you to get pregnant a day after. Important to use birth control (and condoms for sti protection) if you do not ant to get pregnant. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is it possible for a woman get pregnant without having gotten her period?

Yes, it is.: No periods in a woman who's had a period before means you're not ovulating (releasing an egg) every month. If you're not ttc you should still use birth control as you may still be fertile, and you can go from no period to prego without a period. If you're ttc see a reproductive endocrinology and infertility (rei) md for testing and treatment to help you conceive; see rei if you never had a period. ...Read more
