It is extremely unlikely to get pregnant during a menstrual cycle but it is possible towards the end of the cycle. The key factor is the length of your cycle. Women with a shorter menstrual cycle (time between periods) have a very slim chance of conceiving if they had unprotected sex on the last day of the woman’s period and almost no chance if they had unprotected intercourse during the period. Women with a common cycle (for example 28 days), have almost no chance of conceiving in either scenario.

It is all to do with when during a cycle the woman ovulates, when precisely the unprotected intercourse occurs and how long the man’s sperm can survive in the cervix.

The first factor is ovulation. One of a woman’s ovaries releases an egg approximately 12 to 14 days before the start of the period, this is called ovulation. So if your menstrual cycle is 28 days (4 weeks) in length, ovulation will occur at some time in the middle, for example between day 12 and day 16.

Also important is the length of time the sperm can survive in the cervix. A man’s sperm can only survive up to about five days in the mucus of a woman’s cervix and to become pregnant an egg must be fertilised within 12 hours to one day of ovulation. For example, if you ovulate on day 12 of the cycle, you have a slim chance of conceiving if you had unprotected intercourse five days previously.

In conclusion, what this all means is that if the woman has a shorter menstrual cycle (time between periods), then you have a slim chance of conceiving if you had unprotected sex right at the end of your period and almost none if you had sex during the period.

It is possible to get pregnant with unprotected sex at anytime. Period. And every woman ovulates differently. I ovulate for 3 days after my period stops. That is how I had my daughter as I am hard to impregnate. But anytime of the month for the woman and unprotected their is always the chance of getting pregnant

For pregnancy, presence of alive egg is necessary. Egg is released at the mid of the cycle and has a life of 24 hours. So, it requires fertilization by sperm within 24 hours. Sperms have a life of 5-7 days. So intercourse few days before and after ovulation can lead to pregnancy. Endometrium has special preparations to receive fertilized egg in every menstrual cycle. These preparations are wasted through menstrual bleeding if there is no pregnancy. After periods, preparations are started again for fertilized egg. This means when you are bleeding, endometrium is not prepared and egg is dead and being wasted in form of blood. So, sex during periods will not lead to pregnancy.

Most doctors told me it is the best time to have sex and not get pregnant,for me it was better that I wait and I knew when I ovulated so in my opinion it is very unlikely.

Well I think getting pregnant during your menstural cycle is very odd and unlikely. Though nothing is never ruled out in my book. If you have unprotected sex at the end or last day of your cycle you could stand the chance of the mans sperm staying in you if you ovulate a few days after your menstural cycle ends. I would never recommend unprotected sex unless you are willing to accept being pregnant and are ready for it.

Most probably no.  You are at your most fertile from day 12-17 from the first day of our period.

Well my doctor told me and my husband the best time for me to get pregnant was the two days before and the two days after my period . So I'm thinking that every women is different. Right now I'm in the same boat. My husband just recently came back from iraq and we want to have a baby. The night he got home and we had sex and the next morning I was on my period. We never have sex while I'm on my period but that was an exception we continued to have sex for the next 3 days some days twice a day. He left on that sunday and went to cali to go to school so I only saw him for 3 days. So I'm a lil conflicted right now. I hope I'm pregnant but after reading a lot of comments it doesn't seem that you can get pregnant on your period. It's been almost 2 weeks. I really don't remember how this works I have a 11yr old and a 10yr old. So could I be pregnant? I stayed on my period for 8 days and now its brown and a moderate flow. And I'm a lil nausea. But I could be feeling like this because I want this so bad. So can someone please give me some advice. Thanks

The odds of getting pregnant while on your period are very slim.  It is possible for some women, but it's extremely rare.  The majority of women ovulate during the middle of their cycle.  So I'm going to say no, you're not pregnant.
