Is there still a chance?

Can you still get Pregnant even when your not ovulating? Im not really sure when exactly im most fertile. i had sex 4 days AFTER my LAST period. The condom broke. And before we realized the condom was broke I Felt a warm substance entering me. Is there a chance I can be Pregnant? . . although im not ovulating? or am Ovulating?

Sperm can last up to five days inside your reproductive tract.   If you had sex 4 days after the end of your last period and it became unprotected by condom failure, it's a dandy time to get pregnant.  If it was 4 days after the first day of your last period, that is less likely, but even so it can take you to nine days into your cycle, and a lot of women ovulate that early in their menstrual month.  It's said a person has about a 20% chance of getting pregnant in a given month if they have unprotected sex.

Annie is correct. You can become pregnant even while on your period so four days after your period started or stopped is a time when you're more likely to conceive than if you had sex right *before* a period starting.

I would say it's unlikely but not impossible.  I was told by my infertility specialist a medical doctor who specializes in helping people make babies, that sperm can live up to 72hrs (3 days).  I have seen women on here say they can live up to 7 days...I don't think that's true.  I wouldn't worry too much, you won't know if you're pregnant until you can test in a few weeks.  Good luck!!

Thank your for your advice. I think I am ovulating then or about to. My period is 4 days long and I had sex 4 days after makes that equal  to 8. Today is my 10th or 11th day. So the Sperm Could still be possible be in me. . right? : D

That's right, even by the most conservative count, sperm could still be alive in your system.  If a woman were *trying* to get pregnant, this is not the timing she would use, but it is possible.
