Doctor insights on: Can I Get Pregnant When I Have My 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

Dear Dr. I have my period late about 5 days. I though that i was pregnant, by the way on day 6 i got bleeding. Is there any chance to get pregnant?

Probably not, but...: A woman cannot get her normal regular period and be pregnant at the same time. However, she can get pregnant a week or two after her normal period. Also, if she has some spotting or unusual bleeding that doesn't look like her normal regular period, she can check a urine pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) to see if she is pregnant. ...Read more

That can be: Hard to say but you were pregnant meaning u did ovulate. My guess is that you will soon resume normal menses but it can take some time; that is if your menses were normal prior to the pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more

Can't  I get  pregnant  if I have sex  when I have my period  I  have chase's  .I nee u help ?

Unlikely, but ...: In order to get pregnant, intercourse must occur around the time of ovulation (releasing an egg). Ovulation usually takes place about two weeks after menstruation, which makes it unlikely (but not 100% impossible) you would become pregnant from intercourse around the time of your period. If you are trying to avoid pregnancy, be sure to discuss effective birth control options with your doctor. ...Read more

Yes & yes: You can become pregnant from unprotected sex during your period if your periods are irregular. Perhaps, it wasn't your regular period but rather spotting. Or perhaps you're already pregnant from prior unprotected sex, then noted implantation bleeding. As for premenstrual syndrome, PMS doesn't make you infertile or protect against pregnancy.

How do I get pregnant when i'm on birth control because of my period being irregular? I want to get pregnant and i'm on birth control because of my period being irregular. So i need help, please. Thanks.

Well : Well first and foremost you need to get off birth control. The only way you will know if you are ovulating is by testing with an ovulation prediction kit, however this will be tricky since you are irregular. I recommend you finish the last pack of pills, and after your period ends start using the ovulation prediction kit about ten days later (from the first day of bleeding). Read the instructions carefully. After one year of trying and not being successful, you and your partner should consult an infertility specialist. Best of luck. ...Read more

Getting : Getting pregnant a week before your period is a definite possibility. Anytime a fertile woman has a missed or light period after unprotected sex, then a pregnancy test is warranted. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. Good luck! ...Read more
