Pregant the first day of period?

My boyfriend and i were messing around the day i started my period, he had a condom on and put the head of his penis inside of me (we haven't had actual sex yet) anyway I had a tampon in at the time as well. The condom ended up breaking and some of his sperm got inside of me. I took my tampon out almost immediately and it had sperm on the base of it but inside of me still smelled like his sperm. Anyway I'm still in my period and it has been regular (heavy bleeding the first 3 days and then tappering off). I was wondering if there is still a chance I may be pregnant. I felt myself ovulate 2 weeks before i started my period but im still a bit worried. What are the chances I may be pregnant?

Your chances of being pregnant is NONE!

How do you have sex with tampon on??

The time when you are ovulating is  higher chance of getting pregnant, but sense you were on  your period, I dont think you are...

How old are you?

There is no way you could be pg.  And I'm sorry to tell you but any kind of penitration is sex regardless of how much of him goes inside.  And how were you able to do anything with a tampon in?  I too would like to know your age.

It does seem unlikely, but you should know that pregnancy can occur even during your period, especially when your periods aren't as regular as clockwork, as they often aren't when you are young.  It's possible to ovulate at any time in the cycle.  If you think you might again find yourself in the position where sexual activity could develop, you should select a trusted adult to help you navigate the ins and outs (oh, dear--no pun intended!)of birth control and STD prevention.  Good luck.

Having sex(even just the head) with a tampon in, does not sound like a good idea!! I wouldn't say the chances of you being prego are none...because my best friend got pregnant on her honeymoon, and she was menstrating at the time..The dr. told her that is due to the fact, that sperm can live inside you for up to 4 days(rare, but they can).Chances of prego in my opinion are very slim.

I'm also curious as to how you have sex with a tampon in?
I spent a great many yearsa believing that I was still a "virgin", but insertion, either oral or vaginal is still sex.

im 18, ok let me explain he didnt stick it in and out just a little bit, i guess i must be pretty deep or something  because he didnt even know i had the tampon in. Now I have very regular periods 26-27 days usually...I knew the chances of me being pregnant were slim but still I got a little scared seeing as this is my first sexual experience. Thanks a lot, one more thing though. If a girl were to become pregnant while she was on her period would it stop or would she keep bleeding?

IF by some very slim chance that you became pregnant under these circumstances while on your first day of menstruation, yes you would most likey continue to bleed. Your period is when the egg has already been released and has NOT been fertilized so the uterine lining sheds or sloughs off causing you to bleed, washing the egg and unnecessary lining away. Your body was prepared to accept and nurture a prgnancy but when it doesn't occur, it cleans house so to speak. So the chances of you being pregnant are basically very very small. Almost nil.
As for you having sex while on your period.. Well it is a personal choice. People have reasons why they do like it while others have their own reason why they don't. It is up to you. I do hope that you don't mess around with a tampon in again though. What if he had gotten a little carried away and gone in further? Could have sent you thru the roof if you get my drift. ANd no offense to your BF since I am sure he's a great guy, but in the heat of the moment, guys tend to stop thinking with the head on their shoulders. So I wouldn't try that again if I were you. Just let him know that you are on your period and dont want to fool around. Or if you do, make sure that he is okay with it. As far as the smell goes. There is a smell, all men have an odor,as do women.A natural odor but it should NOT smell foul at all. That would be a sign of an infection. The scent of people is different for everyone of us and we actually respond and are attracted to it without even being aware.
I'm sure that Monkeyflower could explain what I'm talking about in a much better way.. HINT HINT Monkeyflower, help me out here.
So I hope this helps you a bit and much lcuk in the future.. Just be CAREFUL and keep using those condoms. Maybe it's time you sought out an extra form of BC just to be SUPER SAFE!

His sperm has a smell? Yuck. Don't ever have sex again while wearing a tampon. You could do serious damage to your body. If it was definitely day 1, the chances of getting pregnant are pretty much nil, but you really need a lot of education about sex and your body before attempting intercourse again. As a previous poster said, you should also be on birth control. My husband's sperm is odorless and I've never been with a guy whose semen had an odor. Your boyfriend may want to get that checked out.

Gotta disagree with your notion that a person shouldn't have sex during her period.  It feels *great* then--no better cure for cramps or grumpiness that I've ever found!  Plus, there's nothing inherently unhealthy about it at all, and you can even make cleaning up afterward part of the intimate fun.

I say go for it!  Definitely lose the tampon first, though. ;-)

I think you know nothing about sex, and shouldn't be having sex.

My opionion is that YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE SEX WHILE ON YOUR PERIOD! I was suggest you going on some kind of birth control.

Yes you can still bleed while your pregnant!!

I REALLY DONT THINK YOU ARE PREGNANT!

We are still here if you need to talk...:)

Diet (his) could have an impact on the smell of his sperm, but it shouldn't knock you over.

Current thinking suggests the risk of infection is quite high if you have sex during your period, which is why many suggest not doing it. Definitely don't have sex with a tampon in, that is begging for problems.

And I agree with the other posts, Any penetration, no matter how slight, is sex.

its definately not a foul smell, its just a smell...some people might not notice their partners smell because who goes around smelling their significant others ejaculate? anyway I do feel better but as far as the criticism goes I do have a good understanding of my body and sex, however I was scared, so please don't be so jugemental

Penetration of any kind is sex.  I believe you have an understanding of your body, however you still should look into some form of birth control.  I know it may be difficult, but if you feel you are mature enough for a sexual relationship with your partner, take the responsibility to look into birth control.  Go to a clinic or your doctor and discuss any questions you have and choose a birth control to fit your needs.  Always use a condom as well.  Birth control will protect you from becoming pregnant (most of the time, but not 100%) but the condoms protect you from disease.  Best of luck to you and your boyfriend.

You guys can do whatever you want, it's your body, if you get an enfection, don't come crying here!

Having sex during AF does not cause infections. If someone doesn't want to do it during that time, it's strictly a personal preference.

I agree with those who've noted that whether or not to have sex during your period is a matter of personal preference.  It does seem to me sad, though, if folks opt not to do so because they think it's somehow dangerous.  And it's too bad that there's so much misinformation out there (the thinking that pregnancy is not possible then, for instance, which it definitely *is*) that might be swaying folks one way or another.  

To my way of thinking, it's a good thing not to find any aspect of your own body and it's functioning sick or gross.  I'm pretty comfortable with myself, I find intercourse an excellent feeling during menstruation, my husband has zero qualms about it (likely taking my lead, there), so off we go!  

Anyway, I think I'd not survive a week without!  And a whole week without *every darned month* is plain old unthinkable. ;-)

Then, too, there are plenty of non-intercourse types of intimacy you can play around with then if you just can't get past distaste for dealing with the blood.  No reason at all to give up orgasms even if you aren't in the mood for intercourse.

At any rate, I think choice is good as long as the choice is an educated one, and not based on fear or misinformation or shame.

i agree.........semen does have a distinct"odor" but it should not be a foul one.
