Can you get pregnant during or right after your period?

Probably not: Most women do not ovulate until at least 7 to 14 days after the period starts. If you have 21 day cycles, then you likely ovulate about 7 days after your period starts and there would be about a 1 in 1000 chance that you could conceive by having sex during your period. ...Read more

So u is true u can't get pregnant right after ur period stops and how is that u can or can't ?

No: Unfortunately, this is not true. This is why the rhythm method does not work. I certainly would not rely on this for contraception. A woman can still get pregnant even though she may have just finished her period. Barrier methods and the birth control pill are far more reliable and effective. ...Read more

Can you get pregnant right before your period is due??

Can you get pregnant right before your period is due??

Yes, but unlikely: A woman can get pregnant just before here period is due, but a woman cannot get pregnant just before her period started. The reason is that she only knows when her period is DUE, if it hasn't actually started (that means if it never starts, she probably ovulated late and got pregnant). If her period actually started, then she knows she did not get pregnant (conceive) a few days ago. ...Read more

Can you get pregnant right before you period starts like day before or even few days before. And your having PMS symptoms along with it.

Can you get pregnant right before you period starts like day before or even few days before. And your having PMS symptoms along with it.

Less likely, but: The chances are not zero. If you absolutely do not want to conceive total abstinence is it. Otherwise, even non-intercourse sex without protection has at least some small chance. Using the1st day if your last period as day one, the days 12 thru 19 are the most likely to conceive. The sperm lifetime matters too. Good luck. ...Read more

Can u get pregnant right after mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD removal? I got it removed 4 days ago and now I am bleeding could it b my period coming that soon or?

Can u get pregnant right after mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD removal? I got it removed 4 days ago and now I am bleeding could it b my period coming that soon or?

Unlikely, but.....: You can get pregnant immediately after removal of an iud, depending where you are in your cycle. That being said, if you are only 4 days post removal, it is too early to check a pregnancy test. Additionally, your periods may be irregular just after removing the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud. I recommend you wait a week, then check a urine pregnancy test. Best of luck! ...Read more
