Difficult to calc: This question.... A % of risk that you're asking. It's impossible to give you a specific number. It is low right before you're period, but it isn't zero.

But if a woman ovulates later, for example a cycle length of 30 days, the ovulation will be 2 days later on day 16 of the cycle. Ovulation is usually 14 days before the next period. ...Read more

Can you have a 5 day period if you're pregnant? Normally my periods are longer but tests all said negative before period started.

No: Only a pregnancy test can tell you if you are pregnant. Just take a test so you won't wonder. If you are bleeding, it does not always mean that you are having a period. They are not the same. People bleed in pregnancy for a variety of reasons including miscarriage and implantation. Bleeding does not always equal a period.

Not Pregnant: I am not sure, but I would operate under the assumption that you know the answer to your specific question. Viable pregnancy stops vaginal bleeding. You have something going on and that is what you should ask about. You are not pregnant. Bleeding is never a sign of pregnancy. Now, are you getting some hormone fluctuations due to early menopause? Is there something stressful in your life? ...Read more
