Can you get pregnant if you had unprotected sex a week and a half before your period starts

I know ovaluation is like 14 days after your period.  My period is like due on the September 1st or even perhaps the 29th of August, but the thing was I had unprotected sex with my ex bf a week and a half before my period which was on the 20th August.  Could I be pregnant? Just two days ago I started to itch slightly.   Now I was pregnant before, it happened exactly on my day of ovulating cause I had implantation bleeding that same night which i thought was suppose to be after loosing my virginity.  But I had an abortion during my sixth week, I'm still angry at my bf for making me do it but I'm starting to heal. During that pregnancy even before I found out I was pregnant I itched like crazy could not stop, even after I had the abortion I still itched for the month.  But really, could I get pregnant, cause I mean if the egg is released on day 14 and it requires a sperm to reach it within 24 hrs then I couldn't possibly be pregnant cause my 14 day was like the 13 August and I had no implantation bleeding.  Can I still be pregnant?


This discussion is related to One day period, had unprotected sex the day before.

I mean to be rude this time cause I'm fed up with this ****.  If you got pregnant because you were dumb enough not to use protection and had to get an abortion, why the hell haven't you learned your lesson and used birth control this time?!  Babies aren't puppies that you just have them cause they are cute!  Its a serious thing and if you are not ready to be responsible enough to use birth control I feel sorry for you and your baby.   Grow up!

You ovulate 14 days before your next period not 14 days after your period.so firstly you need to understand ovulation before you start questioning if you are pregnant.you could or could not be pregnant best to see if your period is late.itching isnt pregnancy related.but i agree with mumita,if you dont want a child or unsure then use protection.to many girls on here want to get pregnant for a fashion acessory,not all women get implantation bleeding.i would wait to see if your period turns up.

If you have unprotected sex.. There is a chance of pregnancy.. Do yourself a favor, and get on some BC!!

Uggh.. I am with you Mumita.. I wish they would have left the forum as it was.. But that's a whole other post.

It never amazes me and some questions. And it tickes me as some responses lol.

Rule number one: Anytime you have unprotected sex, you are at risk for getting pregnant, contracting a disease that is cureable or not cureable or having both happen.

Rule number two: As a woman or young lady, before you start making grown up decisions, it would be WISE to learn the female body, and it would not hurt to learn a little about the mans body. Knowing yourself will also give you more pleasure to sex, and might even make you wait until the right one comes along, because laying down with any old joe is not worth it. And not knowing what feels good to you is not worth going threw the motions and not getting nothing from it.

Rule number three: You lay down with flees you get up with flees(meaning you dont no no better)

Rule number four: Pray for guideance in anything you do, and forgiveness

Rule number five: You should learn from your mistakes, we should get wiser not dumber.

With this said, i hope you go and research and get to learn your body.

Actually Tarjanes, the text book says you ovulate 14 days after your menstrual cycle, for some reason, thats a rule of thumb even clinics use, BUT, its suppose to be for women who have a 28 day cycle, which would make a woman ovulate on CD14. So i understand why she would say that, which that would also make a woman ovulate about 14 days prior to the start of her next cycle.

So to answer your question, yes, there is a chance you could be preggo, and if it was unprotected, your chances are higher.  I will keep you in my prayers.

Based on a 28 day cycle yes maybe,but women have different luteal phases which is why they say you ovulate 14 days before your period.problems with text books and doctors they assume all women have 28 day cycles which we know not to be try..


I like your rules:)

Yes that is true, because i ovulate on CD 15 or 16. I was assuming that is where she might of heard that info from, most planned parent hoods tell you that, not even asking you how long is your cycle.(i wasnt trying to knock what you were saying)

Far as the rules: That is what our father told all the girls he had. And my brothers, there rules were use a condom and have fun ;! WTH is what i thought to myself, like daddy is so sexest lol.

soooooo, anyways, we were there the other night again.....

but yes, although YOU can only get pregnant 24 hours out of the month, sperm can "wait" for an eggup to 7 days, in the best vaginal conditions.....

as for your abortion, i'm ASSUMING you are over the age of 18(since most states require that), i'm sorry you did something that you now regret.....IMO, for the record, i hope the same man who "made" you get that abortion, is not the man you might be pregnant by now...or the cycle may repeat itself.....if you are not planning on children, you need some type of birth control...not all women have implantation bleeding, i know i didnt...not all women have symptoms either, again, i didnt...another way to track your cycles and ovulating is mymonthlycycles . com
that wesite has you put in your period(or last period), and gives you a "forecast" of future periods and ovulation dates, based on the length of your cycle(that you put in)...it even allows you to put in symptoms(for pms/ovulation etc), each day wether menstruating or not, and also allows you to print out your charts, to show a dr, or to keep on  hand for yourself!

I never wanted to get pregnant in the first place.  Where I come from no one teaches about sex.  All they tell you is not to have sex and you are not allowed to talk about it.  He was more experience than me.  I had none.  He was the first person.  He didn't even go inside me when I got pregnant, just came on me.  Imagine how I felt.  I know it was wrong to have him touch me in the first place and even more wrong to kill my own child, but I have more guilt that I could bear to think about the fact that I put my life above that of my child.  He wasn't even there for me and I gave him my innocence, my virginity...I was still with him, but not anymore cause I know realise that he was just using me to get what he wanted.  A part of me wanted my child back that's why I didn't take the BC when the doctor offered and yes I had sex with him.  I wanted to be pregnant, but lately the way he is treating me I don't want to be anymore.  I really do hate him and now I just have to hope that I am not pregnant.  My period was the 1st of August (Friday) or this friday it should come...right?

I calulated my ovulation date based on mymonthlycycle.com and it was the 15 August and I had sex on the 20th so i cannot be pregnant cause it said that my most fertile time was 4 days before the 15th, which included the 15th and one day after.  So I cannot be pregnant...thank God.

WOW You are something else! You dont deserve a child!!!! I have been trying with my husband to have a baby and have had 2 miscarriages in the past 4 months!! I dont understand where you come from that people tell you nothing about sex and to just not talk about it!!!! You need help!!!! I hope for the sake of the child that you are not pregnant!!! It seems like it is a game for you!!! oh i want a baby and then oh now i dont bc he is not treating me right!! second of all NO man can tell you what to do with your body!!! If you truly wanted to have that baby you would have left that "boyfriend" the fact that you slept with him again just to get pregnant again is so wrong of you!!!! You said you found out that he used you for what he wanted well if you are pregnant (I pray that you are not) you are no better than him because you used him for what you "thought" you wanted!!!  You have no Idea how many women including myself that cant wait to get a positive pregnancy and then pray that everything goes well!!! You make me soo sad!!

well, this is my giggles for the night. Refers her back to the rules i stated above and that may exlpain your itch.

IM CURIOUS IJES, WHERE DO U LIVE AND HOW OLD ARE YOU.  Even in africa they talk about sex, just in some parts they remove the childs clit because its part of their culture. So, where are you from again. Im assuming if they dont talk about sex where you are from, it must not be meant to be having sex.

FYI: If you could not go to anyone, thats what they have clinics for :PLANNEDPARENTHOOD

I don't think I'm ever going to have sex again not until I am married for sure.  I just wish I had the guidance most young girls have about sex.   But now I'm learning cause I have the internet.  I'm sorry if I seemed careless. I really wasn't cause I didn't know.  I never know that I could get pregnant without him penetrating me. He said I couldn't get pregnant.  It was after I got pregnant that he penetrated me (he wanted to bring my period so I let him).  i was scared. We never even sat down and discussed it.  All I know is that I could not be pregnant.   I can't imagine what people who have problem conceiving go through, but I could understand where they are coming from.  i sometimes wish I could go back in time.  People make mistakes, sometimes they make two and three after which they learn the lesson.  Trust me I've learnt mine.  Regarding the itch, I do hope it's not std.  I've been researching on the internet, but I'm all clear of the symptoms of any of them.  The Doctor said that the reason for the itching was normal for some first time pregnacies which are rare in most women.  It's called pruruntis of pregnancy (pop).  He was worried that if I got pregnant again, I would develop the same pop since I never went to full term cause of the abortion.  A lot of you are angry with me.  I'm angry with me and for the record I'm 24.  You may think at 24 i should know a whole lot.  Well I don't.  I don't know anything, but now I'm learning

as for being clear of symptoms from any std..thats not true....YOU CAN have an std and not even know it..how do you think so many people pass it around.....??? You really shouldnt be having sex if you dont want to deal with the consiquences....i dont feel sorry for you and i agree you are just using him as well so you are no better off..the two of you sound like your meant for eachother!!! I really hope one day even now becuase your 24 that you do grow up and grow a head on your shoulders and learn to speak for yourself and be responsible for your own actions!!

So much information on this mb.  But wow. . . YES!!! Anytime you have unprotected sex, Pregnancy CAN occur.

And a luteal phase is not necessarily 14 days.  A healthy one is anywhere from 10-16 according to some sources.  

I am stupider for reading this. . .

Hi,

I want to apologize to everyone here.  I didn't mean to hurt anyone with my questions and comments.  Some of you are getting a hard time with your pregnancies and I really don't want to add to what you are already doing through...you really don't need me to upset you.  If I said somethings that may seem like I don't care...I'm sorry.  Please accept my apology.

Thanks Keyan for talking to me.  I hope everything will be ok for both of us.

Ok, so I am not defending 1jes6. But I am a 25 year old who has had one miscarriage and I still do not understand a lot about pregnancy. I have to ask friends or family members. I am pregnant now and I can't wait to be able to go through all the pregnancy experience.  That being said, I was raised in a religious organization that would not allow us to talk about sex let alone date anyone. I was smart enough to wait until I was married to try to have children, but I think because of the religious background I had, it is really hard for me to understand and deal with the terms and meaning of somethings that have to do with pregnancy. I did do research before trying to have children, but my first pregnancy, that ended in a miscarriage, I was on birth control. Now about the fact that your "boyfriend" made you have a miscarriage, in the end it was your decision. I will never let someone bully me into hurt something that I love. My husband and I have been trying to have children for almost four years now, and this is only my second pregnancy. I only hope that the teens that might read this learn to do research and to totally understand the consequences. I hope that you take this advise: do not try to have children until you know everything there is to know about them.
