Can I get pregnant 3 days after ovulation having my period due 10 days from that ovulation?

Can I get pregnant 3 days after ovulation having my period due 10 days from that ovulation?

No: A woman cannot GET pregnant 3 days after ovulation, meaning her egg cannot get fertilized 3 days after ovulation. Her egg only lasts about one day, so it would have to be fertilized no later than 1 day after ovulation. The question she needs to answer for herself is, "When did I ovulate? " In real life, she does not know the answer. It is an estimated date, but tracking body temperatures can help. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

I have red blood with clots 3 days before period due, I had sex around a week after ovulation, the blood isn't too heavy, is it just my period?

More than likely: It is very likely that bleeding you are having is your period. Both the length of the a woman's menstrual cycle and the character and amount of bleeding during menses vary now and then in most women, for a variety of reasons or for no apparent reason. If you are concerned about the possibility of pregnancy you should do a pregnancy test, and should use reliable birth control. ...Read more

What if I start my pills again 2 weeks before my period (i heard u can start anytime, so eventho after ovulation you still can start?) and wait for 14 days, are you protected by then?

Depends: Combination pills
combination pills have two hormones — estrogen and progestin.

You may start the combination pill at any time:

if you start within five days after the start of your period, you are protected against pregnancy right away. You will not need to use a backup method of birth control. That means that if your period starts on a wednesday morning, you can start the pill up to monday mor. ...Read more

Last period sept 26 went off oct 1. Had sex twice day after ovulation. Period due today oct 21. Havnt come on yet should I give it time?

Yes more time: Should count the days from day one of your menstrual cycle to day one of the next menstrual cycle. This is referred to as cycle length. Oct 21 would make this a 26 day cycle. Wait 3 more days then do a pregnancy test. If your cycle remains only 26 days and you're not getting pregnant see your doctor for egg reserve tests. ...Read more

Depends: Did you have unprotected sex since your last period? If yes, you may wish to repeat the pregnancy test about a month after the last episode of sex, unless you get a period before then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I ovulated on Saturday night, and my period started yesterday (thursday) so I got my period 5 days post ovulation. Why would this happen?

Short luteal phase: The luteal phase is the time from ovulation to the onset of your menses and average is 12-16 days. Your recent cycle was short. The ovary produced low progesterone during that cycle. There are many causes for this and if you monitor your cycle and find that there is a consistent pattern, I recommend that you consult your gynecologist. ...Read more

If not, use some form of seriously effective birth control. Also, remember that even some effective birth control methods do not protect you from stds.

Hi! In worried its 18 days after ovulation and I haven't had my period yet. My cycle length is fairly irregular from 28-36 days usually. I tookan early?

Pregnancy worries?: 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

I stopped the pill 3 months ago. I can feel myself ovulate but am unsure if I'm releasing an egg. My period follows 3 weeks after ovulation. Ovulating?

Unusual: It would be unusual if your period came three weeks after you ovulate. Gynecological textbooks maintain that the second half of the menstrual cycle needs to be pretty exactly two weeks in order for the cycle to be fertile. By this token, if there is no pregnancy, a woman would have to come on her period two weeks after she ovulated. ...Read more
