Could a woman get pregnant right after her period ends?

Could a woman get pregnant right after her period ends?

Possible: Although not likely, it is possible for a woman to conceive at this time. If she has short menstrual cycles and there is still viable sperm after the egg is released than pregnancy could occur. Please use protection for every act of vaginal intercourse if you aren't ready for pregnancy.

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Can a women get pregnant 21 day after her period?

Can a women get pregnant 21 day after her period?

Life is not exact...: Maybe, if a cycle is longer than 31 days. If a woman ovulates 2 weeks after the start of her last period, every cycle, then 3 weeks after the start of her last period would be too late to get pregnant. However, if she ovulates a few days later occasionally (maybe 2 weeks and 5 days) after the start of her period, then her egg may still be fertile at 21 days after her lmp. Days are estimates.

Can a women get pregnant if a man rubs his bare penis above the anus does not come at all and the female was on her period wearing a tampon?

Can a women get pregnant if a man rubs his bare penis above the anus does not come at all and the female was on her period wearing a tampon?

Unlikely: It's unlikely that without penetration in the vagina a woman would become pregnant. Also, the fact that the woman was still bleeding, puts her at a time in her cycle when it is unlikely that she will get pregnant. And lastly, since there was no ejactulate, also unlikely. Thus, not zero, but very close to zero.

Can woman get pregnant on her period?

Can woman get pregnant on her period?

Not exactly: Women can get pregnant when they are bleeding especially when the bleeding is not their normal period. Not all vaginal blleeding means they are on their menstrual cycle. Ovulation occurs 14 days before the cycle starts and this is the optimal time to get pregnant. When a true menstrual cycle comes it means ovulation did not occur. Having sex during that time would be low risk for pregnancy.

How can a woman get her period while pregnant?

How can a woman get her period while pregnant?

She cannot: During a normal menstrual period, a woman's uterus sheds (loses) its lining, leading to the bleeding... and she gets a new lining the next cycle. If she were pregnant, and replaced the lining of her uterus, the pregnancy would be lost too. Pregnant women do get vaginal bleeding sometimes, but it is not a menstrual period (even if it sort of looks like one).

Can a woman get pregnant the day after her period?

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.

Can a woman get pregnant without having her period?

Can a woman get pregnant without having her period?

Sure can: Ovulation always occurs before a period is missed. A prime example of this is a newly delivered woman who has no period during the post partum period but engages in unprotected sex and Voila! Another pregnancy without a period showing up whatsoever.
