How can having sex right after your period can u get pregnant ?

Depends: If you truly had a period, i.e., something that occurs 14 days after you ovulate (release an egg) and the egg is not fertilized, then you cannot get pregnant until you ovulate again. Unfortunately, 10 different women might have 10 different lengths of time from period to ovulation, although if they don't get pregnant, they will all have 14 days from ovulation to their next period. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Had sex a wk before period and got a positive pregnancy test 2 weeks after. Is that possible? Or could pregnancy hav happen before that intercourse?

Had sex a wk before period and got a positive pregnancy test 2 weeks after. Is that possible? Or could pregnancy hav happen before that intercourse?

Maybe. Maybe not.: If already pregnant, that would mean the "period" was not a real menstrual period, because having a real menstrual period clears out the uterus... So having a real menstrual period means not pregnant at that time. ...Read more

It : It would be reasonable to take a pregnancy test now based on your symptoms. It does make it hard when you have very irregular periods as you note. If your test is negative, but you still don't get your period, wait two days then re-take the test. If it is still negative you could see your doctor and possibly get a blood pregnancy test, which is more accurate. In general, the pregnancy test can become positive 10 days after pregnancy though every womans hormone level of pregnancy (HCG) can be a little different at different stages of the pregnancy. ...Read more

How likely are you to get pregnant if you have intercourse a day after your period ends my period last it 4 days had sex day 5th my cycle last 30-32.

Hi..
I am f 23, i had sex on my 5th day of my periods.
And took 2 i pill within 12 hours of intercourse. Can i still get pregnant..!

Yes: If you ovulated quite early in your cycle, you could get pregnant by having sex on day 5. Did you take the morning after pill, or did you use regular birth control pills? It's unclear from your question whether or not you took the pills correctly. Even if you took them correctly however, they don't always work. Waiting to find out if you are pregnant is very anxiety producing. Good luck! ...Read more
