My partner and I had sex on the 17th that was 10 days after my period my cycle is between 46-52 days long could I be pregnant?

My partner and I had sex on the 17th that was 10 days after my period my cycle is between 46-52 days long could I be pregnant?

Long period: If your cycle is always that long, you would ovulate later than the sex occurred and it would be unlikely, but there are no guarantees with getting pregnant. If you do not want to be pregnant, best to be on BC and use condoms to prevent STI's. Check a Preg test if you miss your next scheduled period.

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

If my cycle was October 9th-14th it's 10 days after my period I been having unprotected sex in order to get pregnant I am spotting is this normal?

If my cycle was October 9th-14th it's 10 days after my period I been having unprotected sex in order to get pregnant I am spotting is this normal?

Likely Normal: It may be an indication of pregnancy, though it is too soon to test. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a pregnancy test. If the result is negative, repeat the test 4-5 days, unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.

My period is a week late and I have not started yet. I have a 32 day cycle and I had brown spotting for 2 days 10 days after my period. Pregnant?

My period is a week late and I have not started yet. I have a 32 day cycle and I had brown spotting for 2 days 10 days after my period. Pregnant?

Periods: I'm assuming you are talking about your last period with the spotting. If you've had unprotected intercourse pregnancy is certainly possible, check a home pregnancy test

I had sex 10 days after my period ended, I took Plan B 1 hour after the sex and I have about a 37 day cycle. What is the likelihood of pregnancy?

I had sex 10 days after my period ended, I took Plan B 1 hour after the sex and I have about a 37 day cycle. What is the likelihood of pregnancy?

Very low, not zero: Assuming a cycle length of about 6 days, you had intercourse very close to when you were going to ovulate based on your cycle length. You also took planb appropriately, and it has a very high likelihood of preventing pregnancy. I would say that your chances of pregnancy are <5%. You need to take a pregnancy test 2-3 weeks after this episode of intercourse to rule out pregnancy.

Is it possible to get pregnant 10 days after the beginning of your last period?

Quite possible: Ovulation occurs mid-cycle. Each woman has a different cycle length. You can use an ovulation chart to figure out when yours is. That is the time you are most likely to be able to become pregnant.

Can I get pregnant 8 days after my period?

Can I get pregnant 8 days after my period?

Yes: Although it's not likely, since it normally take another week to ovulate, not everyone has a regular cycle with predictable ovulation. It's possible to get pregnant at anytime during your menstrual cycle. I wouldn't risk it!

Can I get pregnant 3 days after my period?

Can I get pregnant 3 days after my period?

No: Generally you do not ovulate until 12-14 days after your period if you have a regular 28 day cycle. I do recommend if you are not trying to get pregnant, use contraception and not this method with your cycle. If you are trying to get pregnant, you are having sex at the wrong time to achieve pregnancy.

Might I get pregnant 2 days after my period?

Might I get pregnant 2 days after my period?

Can? ...yes: But not likely. If your cycles are long and or you ovulate early then yes. Most women ovulate b/w cycle day 14-16 (days from start of period) it is unlikely that sperm will survive in vagina/uterus past 48 hours. But with natural family planning the wider the fertile window is considered the more successful. Remember only one sperm needs to make it, but it is unlikely.

Can I get pregnant 9 days after my period ended?

Don't know how: Long your period is or how long your menstrual cycle is. So, can't give a really definitive answer regarding likelihood. But - it is possible, so use protection every time you have sex if you are not ready for pregnancy.

Can I get pregnant 4 days after my period finished?

Can I get pregnant 4 days after my period finished?

High risk: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. If intercourse was within 72 hours you consider taking plan b. Ella (ulipristal acetate) is another brand that can be used up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse. Plan b is a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding after is common. Check preg test in 10 days.
