Can you get pregnant during your period? FYI
The debate on whether or not a woman can get pregnant during her period has been going on for decades now. Just like every woman is different, so are her hormonal balances and hence her menstrual cycle. Though there are generalities on which some ground basics of menstruation and pregnancy can be formed, but eventually it all boils down to individual physiology. So, yes, you can get pregnant during your periods.

Wow on all sides! You all remember how rough being a teenaged girl is. I do cause I now have three teenaged daughters and two teenaged sons so I can't forget lol. Young ladies please, find out everything you can about your bpdies before jumping into anything. If  you decide to become sexually active, tell your Mom if you can to get some sort of protection. If you have to go to family planning where your parent won't find out but protect yourselves always. Always use a condom to prevent STDs cause the pill and shot and all will do NOTHING to prevent STDs. I have two girls on bc pills.  One to regulate her cycle  (shes still a virgin) and one for bc purposes cause at 38 I don't want to be a grandma and I want her to be young as long as she can cause adulthood comes up and bites us in the butt way too quickly lol

That happened to me also, i got off my period [10-22-07] and me and my b/f had been having sex ever since [10-26-07] then.. a couple weeks afterwards.. i started getting all of those pains in my lower stomach and my breasts were very sore, i'd get really dizzy and nauseated easily.. and then a couple weeks after that i started my period and it was the worst it had ever been.. it was horrible.... but now i'm off and still having the same problems... idk what it could be.. could i be pregnant? eventhough i had my period... or could it be something else?          i'm going to the doc sometime this week either way.. i was just wanting to know what some of you out there thought... would be much appreciated!

I love to hear that you are in love, but you are young and you talk about you two a lot. Just my opinion is, think of yurself first, do not think of y0u as a part of him, if he ever goes, you have to be the priority in your own life. Think in you and do not let him take care of you using condoms, you take care of yourself with your own methods and understand them well before you do them,this is not a joke, it is your body, your life, not of both of you. If you had problems before, then think what are you doing wrong to yourself to have those problems, you should have no problems at all if you are careful and responsible. If he really loves you, he should not risk you at all. As a good person, I just want the best for the young girls, and you should be very careful and take care of yourself. Do not trust anyone that tells you that they will always help you, because you are alone, fighting in this world. And this was a warning in your head that made you think, but what if you are pregnant next time or this time, that baby is going to be yours and you will not be young anymore to continue your life as a student, you will have to be a mom and respond for the future of the baby.
Well, enough, just take care of yourself, and be very smart. Don't trust anyone. You are YOU.
That is my opinion and I am very conservative person.

wow.... all this preaching...my turn...GREAT ADVICE LADIES, but you all are falling short of a few other things they should be worried about if they are having unprotected sex.  here's the short of the long....STDs are almost always spread from person to person by sexual intercourse, but STDs can also be spread through oral sex.  Here's a short list :)
Chancroid,Chlamydia,Crabs (and yes those little fellows are just as hard to get rid of as lice.),Gonorrhea,Hepatitis,Herpes,Human Papillomavirus/Genital Warts,
Lympogranuloma Venereum,Molluscum,Contagiosum,Nongonococcal Urethritis (NGU), Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), Scabies, Syphilis, Vaginitis, oh and lets not forget AIDS/HIV.  Some of these are treatable, but none are cureable.  They all leave lasting effects, even if you don't know you have, or have had it.  Some of these can even affect the CHILD that having unprotected sex produced.  so all in all, what's the best thing for you to do, JUST STOP, that easy, doesn't require much thought.  You will be happier in the long run, and when you get married so will your husband.  NO ONE WANTS SOMEONE ELSE'S SLOPPY SECONDS

could you get pregnant if your partner did alot of meth i mean since he was young or do the chemicals in his body prevent it from happening.............i need 2 knoe as soon as possible

i was over my boyfriends house and we ended up having sex, but it was the last day of my period and it was very light so i thought it was ok, but when he pulled it out the condom broke so i went to the bathroom and cleaned up as much as i could. do you think i could be pregnant?
Blank

yes! go get that pill. my best friend believed that she could not get pregnant while on her period. now i have a beautiful 4 year old god-daughter...

if you are not on the pill you can get pregnant on your period!!

also for future reference the plan B pill can disrupt your natural cycle for a few months, and if you are sexually active it is ALWAYS in your best interest to be on birth control! most places have clinics where you can get these prescriptions cheap. check out your local planned parenthood!
Blank
502843_tn?1210283793
see my post above.
and know that it is better to get the plan B pill and have peace of mind then it is to have to face a month of wondering. you cannot clean out semen. it basically shoots up into you. and it is possible to get pregnant by pre-***. do not take chances with your life!!

daddys_babygirl- its not likely that you would have gotten pregnant on the last day of your period. it can happen but its so rare. not many ppl will ovulate that quickly!

and i dont recomend plan b, if your pregnant (which i doubt) then it was ment to happen. plan b messes with your body way too much! and pixy79s making it seem like you can totally get pregnant on your period and and your prob are. its not very common and yeah you can still get pregnant when your even on the pill. the only way to make sure you dont get pregnant is by not having sex.
Blank
502843_tn?1210283793
i think you misinterpreted what i said. i never told her she was probably pregnant- only that it is possible. and that for peace of mind it is a good idea to go to a doctor and get plan B. it can disrupt your cycle but isnt dangerous.
and second of all.... meant to happen is up to daddys baby girl. its not up to anyone else, that is a theological question.

not takeing pills nad letting a guy *** inside you does not mean your pregnant.

your on a path towards that but it doesnt mean your pregnant at this moment.
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
who ever is saying you can't get pregnant on your period is not right....it is less likely but it can still happen....now the fact that you are taking birth control safe guards you...and you probably will not be pregnant....but crazier things have happened. Your best bet would be to stop having sex.....because there is always that small chance that you can get pregnant....and the even larger one that you can catch an std.......Like hpv which spreads even with a condom. And Herpes also. If someone is to young to have children they really should not be having sex....and even though it is hard for anyone to deal with std's......at 15 or 16 it is even harder....don't scar yourself by behaving recklessly. I know using protection and birth control is very smart, a lot of people don't...but there is always that small chance.....be careful.

I am on birth control. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex and he came in me about 10 days ago. The same day I was about an hour or 2 late on taking my pill. I stopped the pill yesterday to try and get my period because I am worried I can be pregnant from not taking the pill on time. What do you think?

When having sex, is it the pill the day before or the one right after that counts the most?
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
you can get pregnant on the pill even if you forget to take your pill. missing your pills lessens the effectiveness of it.

your just going to have to wait and take a test

I am 23 yrs. old and have 3 kids already. I am married, and my hubby and I use condoms for protection. Last week, I was on the last day of my period, and we well, you know. We didn't use a condom because I was told not to worry about it. I decided to read up on it, and come to find out I can get pregnant. Are the chances of me being pregnant pretty high? I have pretty reg. periods 28-31 days apart. He did go all the way, so am just curious! Please someone respond back!!!!
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
you should know that theres never a circumstance where using a comdom is something "not to worry about" because you can always get pregnant even on your period. while its very rare it does happen. espeically at the end of your period.

you run a risk of getting pregnant but its not that high

For all those wondering if you can get pregnant during your period - I had unprotected sex twelve years ago with my then partner, five days into my period. The outcome is now 11 years old and sitting in the bath upstairs as I write this.... So the answer is most definitely YES YOU CAN!!!

Yes you can get pg while on your period, you CAN ovulate during your period. My OB told that..even if you fall pg sometimes you can still ovulate even though your already pg.

If you have unprotected sex at anytime there is a chance you could become pregnant.
But it's less likely to happen at the beginning of your period, so i was told..
I was stupid, but i had unprotected sex, first day of my period (i was drunk) and i fell pregnant.
I suffer from PCOS too so my periods are irregular, doesn't make me infertile however.
The only way you'll get proper answers to YOUR question though is to go out there and answer them yourself.
Get a home test or two.
Go to the doctor.


And if you don't want a baby, either don't have sex or use a ******* condom for God's sakes.

My periods have been pretty normal my boyfriend and i have been having unprotected sex only he doesnt finish inside he pulls out. Three days before my period came he finished a little inside me i was wondering if i could be pregnant considering i got my period after like normal? Theres really no difference with me aside from cramping and slight nausae after my period ended which make me wonder if i could be pregnant.

Hi, I'm new to thiss I juss wanted to know something.  . . Me and my boyfriend had sex the last day on my period and actually finished inside me,  we didn't use protection. After that we had sex like two days later and he finished to without protection , and they were during my ovulating days.  Does that increase my chances of being pregnant?
