My cycles are extremely irregular. I haven't had a period since june 9th. Is it still possible to get pregnant this long in a cycle?

Yes: If you're having unprotected sex, it's always possible to get pregnant, even though periods are irregular. Having said that, 4 months without a period is concerning. Could be thyroid, pituitary, extremes of weight (thin/heavy), definitely want to see doctor and discuss, get exam, etc. If you don't want to be pregnant, a good way to regulate cycles is with birth control. Good luck! ...Read more

And fact that your periods are longer makes risk a bit higher. How about if don't want to be pregnant that you see a health care provider for birth control given that you're 16. Protection against stds in addition to pregnancy! good luck. ...Read more

My husband came in me 2 days after my period and then twice more, 3 days after my period. Is it possible to get pregnant? How long until I can take PT

My husband came in me 2 days after my period and then twice more, 3 days after my period. Is it possible to get pregnant? How long until I can take PT

Sure, it's possible: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

How likely is it that I would get pregnant right before my period (2-5 days before)? My cycle is 32-36 days long.

Ovulation: I believe there are now over one million notes here on healthtap teaching women that the story is about the day they ovulate. To answer your question we must know which day you ovulate. The three days prior to ovulation and the day of ovulation are the high risk days for impregnation. It is unlikely that this occurs for you 2-5 days before your period, but that is just a guess. ...Read more
