How many days after your period is it safe to have sex with a little chance of getting pregnant?

How many days after your period is it safe to have sex with a little chance of getting pregnant?

Tricky Timing: Ovulation perhaps most reliably occurs 14 before the menses. Ovulation can vary by several days between cycles. The egg can be fertilized for about 18 hours after ovulation but the sperm can live inside you for 2-3 days or more. If you really do not want to be pregnant then use a contraceptive in addition to timing. Timing failure rate is about 25%/year. ...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

Yes, you may be: If you had unprotected sexual intercourse with a fertile man, there is a risk you may be pregnant or may have been pregnant. Be safe: check you blood betaHCG and consult a gyn regarding using an IUD or a subdermal implant which are the most effective contraceptive methods to prevent you from getting pregnant until you are ready. ...Read more

I would retest: There is a chance and it depends when u took the test. By the time you miss a period it should be positive. If negative you may not have ovulated this month but it may be a good opportunity to get on contraception if u are trying to avoid pregnancy. ...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

Yes, you COULD...: But those are not usually signs of early pregnancy. One of the FIRST things you will notice almost every time before you have even missed a period is breast tenderness and enlargement. Any unprotected sex usually will lead to pregnancy and/or STD's. If you are having trouble conceiving, get your MTHFR 677 & 1298 genotypes tested and TREATED! Treatment is all natural-L-Methylfolate, P5P, B12. ...Read more
