Can you get pregnant when you have your period and have sex?

Can you get pregnant when you have your period and have sex?

Usually not.: It's best to always use barrier protection (condoms) to protect youself. Usually your period, when regular and expected, tells you the uterine lining is shedding and therefore no embryo is able to implant. Sometimes intermittent bleeding can occur from other reasons, and sometimes healthy sperm and egg can still create an embryo and find a spot to implant. Be careful, and call your ob-gyn. ...Read more

Im afraid i might be pregnant. Can you get pregnant when you have sex durring your period and the day after? I have been having unpretected sex since august when i stoppped my Depo-Provera shot. Can you get pregnant if i had sex durring and after my perio

If : If a woman is having regular cycles the chance of becoming pregnant at the onset of her period is less than 1%. However, women often have vaginal bleeding not representing menstruation, that may be mistaken for a period and conception can occur at these times. This type of bleeding can arise from the cervix, complications of pregnancy and other uterine sources besides menstruation. Irregular or unpredictable bleeding after a course of depot Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is not uncommon and ovulation can occur before or after menstruation resumes. So you could indeed be pregnant. Best course would be to check a pregnancy test and find out. ...Read more

Is it true that after having a baby, you can not get pregnant until you start having your period?

Is it true that after having a baby, you can not get pregnant until you start having your period?

No.: It's not true. After delivery a woman can't get pregnant again until she resumes ovulation. She can conceive with her first ovulation, i.e., before a menstrual period is ever seen. Since irregular bleeding (non-menstrual) post-partum is universal, and for women with irregular cycles, it is easy to misinterpret when cycles resume. Many surprise pregnancies happen this way. ...Read more

How likely is it to get pregnant if you have sex while your on your period?

How likely is it to get pregnant if you have sex while your on your period?

Unlikley: Depends on the cycle length. Sperm could potentially be viable and effective for up to 6 days inside the body. If a woman has a cycle length of 21 days then she will ovulate about cycle day 7. If she has a five day period, then there is the small possibility that having sex during the period on or after cycle day 2 could result in a conception. But, with a 28 day cycle there would be no chance. ...Read more

Can you still get pregnant if you have your tube tie and still get your period?

Can you still get pregnant if you have your tube tie and still get your period?

No: Having periods when tubes are tied is no wonder, because your uterus normally responds to the stimulation from the ovaries and tubes play no role in that. Tubes are just channels through which the egg cell will travel. A properly performed tubal ligation carries no risk of pregnancy. I bet you have heard anecdotal rare stories - yeah, yeah, yeah, those happen, 1:1000000. ...Read more
