What are the chances of getting pregnant while ovulating using a condom but it breaks?

What are the chances of getting pregnant while ovulating using a condom but it breaks?

About 1 in 4: The chances of becoming pregnant if one has unprotected intercourse on the day of ovulation is approximately 1 in 4 so if a condom breaks the chances of pregnancy could be that high if all the semen leaked out; if only half of it leaked out it might be half that. If you do not want to take that chance I advise taking the morning-after pill as soon as possible.See http://tinyurl.com/odb9jp9 ...Read more

What are the chances of getting pregnant while ovulating using a condom or the pull out method?

Depends: Using the condom method correctly is quite effective.That entails suiting up as soon as the male is erect and before any intercourse, with a new condom for any renewed activity. The pull out method reduces your risk some but not much, since any semen produced by the penis can carry enough sperm do cause pregnancy, not just the main load. ...Read more

A friend of mine is trying to get pregnant she had sex 10/4,10/6,10/7 her ovulation day was the eighth did she miss her chance of getting pregnant?

No: Having sex on the 3 days before ovulation is a good way to get pregnant. That's how people usually get pregnant. No need to think about it now, but if the next normal, regular period does not come (is a week late), then one can do a urine pregnancy test at that time to see if there is a baby on the way. Urine pregnancy tests are sold everywhere. ...Read more

Had intercourse on ovulation night on the 7th can't get the morning after pill until the 11th what are my chances of not getting pregnant?

~85% chance it works: Some thoughts... Consider taking a morning-after pill as soon as possible, because the sooner the better. If no normal regular period comes in a couple of weeks, one can consider checking a urine pregnancy test. If having sex and not on a birth control pill or other reliable method, then a woman should always carry condoms wherever she goes (that means keeping them in her purse, pocket, etc...). ...Read more

Had sex the day before positive ovulation test, the day of, the next day and day after, will that give me a good chance of getting pregnant?

As good as it gets!: That's about as good as it gets. One can add another 2 days before this current schedule, thus having sex all 3-4 days before ovulation time... to maximize the chances for fertilization. Of course, normal married couples who are young and fertile can take several months to get pregnant, and sometimes even up to 9-12 months. Luck plays a role in life. ...Read more

How high is the chance of getting pregnant when I have sex on the day which ovulation start, but didn't cum and even precum?

How high is the chance of getting pregnant when I have sex on the day which ovulation start, but didn't cum and even precum?

Here's the problem-: A male can transmit pre-ejaculate without being aware of it. The possibility of pregnancy exists. I see that you are 16 years old - if you are not responsible in your approach toward sex then you are likely not mature enough to be having sex. Unwanted pregnancy can be disastrous for young teenagers. ...Read more

How high is the chance of getting pregnant off precum when had sex the week which ovulation start but didn't cum.I am also on cryselle BC.

Birth control: If you have taken your BC correctly and reliably the failure chance would be between about 2-8%. Precum has not been studied for pregnancy, but should be treated as a risk. You don't ovulate while on birth control. Overall risk sounds very low, if you miss the period (on the pill-free week) do a pregnancy test. Good wishes. ...Read more

Does having sex everyday around the time of ovulation increases my chance of getting pregnant? Or his sperm will be too weak to travel to the egg?

Does having sex everyday around the time of ovulation increases my chance of getting pregnant?  Or his sperm will be too weak to travel to the egg?

Should be fine: Most men can have sex every day and have enough total motile sperm for conception. Even though the sperm numbers may go down with sex everyday, motility or movement of the sperm goes up, so it tends to be a wash. Since sperm live in the reproductive tract for 3-4 days average, you can make love every other day around ovulation and be fine, unless you enjoy every day. Hope this helps. ...Read more
