Is there a high possibility of pregnancy if one has protected sex the day after your period ends on a 28 day cycle?

Is there a high possibility of pregnancy if one has protected sex the day after your period ends on a 28 day cycle?

Very Low Probability: You had protected intercourse so this implies condom use which protects you from pregnancy... You also had intercourse just as your cycle ended so you shouldn't ovulate for at least a week if you have normal cycles with only 4-5 day menses... So, you're kinda double protected so i'd say it very unlikely that you could get pregnant with the scenario you gave. I hope that helps, take care. ...Read more

If you have irregular periods (skip for more than 6 weeks, then it is very hard to know if/when your are releasing eggs, and it would be possible (though unlikely) to be conceiv. ...Read more
