Back to School: You are not alone in this question that comes many times per day. Perhaps it is time to review how one get's pregnant.

Me and my boy friend had anal sex on the second day of my period, and he ejaculated inside my anus, so is there any possibility of getting pregnant?

Chances of getting pregnant 4 days before period?

Possible but. . .: Ovulation occurs 2 weeks prior to menses. If you don't fertilize & implant, then you'll have a period. However, sperm can last several days in your body so having sex on any of several days around ovulation can lead to pregnancy. Egg can also live for a few days, too.

Pregnancy older: Women in their fifties can become pregnant, although less often, so some form of contraception is needed.

I would consider consistent condom use to be the most natural un-drug option which is probably enough for an older couple.

I would consider an IUD to be the most natural "hands off" contraception.

I would consider other natural options to be taking your chances. Abstinence? ...Read more

What is the probability of getting pregnant 3 days after my period.?

Low chance: Sperm can live for 48-72 hours in the female genital tract and can fertilize an egg if ovulation happens. There are even some reports of sperm living as long as 5 days. If intercourse happened close to ovulation, then yes, there is a chance. However, since intercourse happened remote from ovulation, then chances are low. Consider condom use if trying to avoid pregnancy. ...Read more

What is the chance of getting pregnant on 5 days before period with thicker condom and pull out method?

What is the chance of getting pregnant on 5 days before period with thicker condom and pull out method?

Extremely small: There are 3 good reasons why pregnancy would be unlikely; a woman will ovulate 13-15 days before her period so she should not be fertile 5 days before her period. Condoms greatly reduce risk of pregnancy and the pull-out method also reduces pregnancy risk. So the only way to be pregnant would be if her cycle was unusually delayed, the condom leaked and one did not pull out in time. ...Read more

Can I get pregnant on my first day of my period if he came inside of me? My period came 6 days early do I have a chance of getting pregnant?

Not likely: It would be extremely unlikely for you to conceive as a result of unprotected sex on the first day of your period unless you had a very disordered ovulation cycle. That said, you should not rely on withdrawal during the unsafe portions of your cycle. Pre-ejaculate fluid (pre-come) contains sperm and can get you pregnant. ...Read more

What is the possibility getting pregnant by having intercourse the exact day after your period ends however not being ejaculated in?

What are the chances of getting pregnant if 4 days before period you were grinding without underwear (no intercourse) but he might've had precum?

Not likely: It sounds like you were playing with fire. It's very simple.

What's the probability of a girl getting pregnant 5 days after her period and taking the Plan B one step pill 22 hours after sex.

What's the probability of a girl getting pregnant 5 days after her period and taking the Plan B one step pill 22 hours after sex.

Should be low: The Plan B within 22 hours of intercourse is 90% effective. When you say 5 days after period, do you mean after the start or end of period. If 5 days after start, unlikely you were near ovulation. If 5 days after end of period, and length is 5-7 days, then you could have been getting pretty close to ovulation again, increasing the risk. Encourage you to see doc regarding ongoing birth control! ...Read more
