Can you be on your period and still get pregnant?

Can you be on your period and still get pregnant?

No, not unless...: A woman cannot get pregnant during her normal regular periods. However, if she has some spotting and is not on her period, but mistakenly thinks she is on her period, it is possible that she is fertile during the spotting.

I was wondering is there a high possibility that you can get pregnant on your period even if you took the morning after pill? I had unprotected sex with my fiance and I used the morning after pill a day after and I was still on my period. But maybe less t

One: One of the most common side effects of the morning after pill is that it can cause cycle irregularity no matter when you take it. It is great that you took the morning after pill right away since the sooner you take it, the more effective it is in preventing pregnancy. Since you took the morning after pill on the day after you had sex and you were still on your period, it is highly unlikely that you would be pregnant. I attached a website with some excellent information about the morning after pill below. ...Read more

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. ...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.

But, with a 28 day cycle there would be no chance. ...Read more
