Can a Woman Become Pregnant During Her Period?


Even though the probability of a lady getting pregnant during her period is very, very low, it does not necessarily mean it is impossible.



As a lady, if you are somehow wondering whether you can get pregnant when you have unprotected sex during your period, the answer is yes! You can probably get pregnant.


You can get pregnant right before your period, during your period or just after your period. If you are pretty much confused, do not worry, read further to grasp the concept.


Let us take a look at how some women get pregnant just before their period
Sometimes vaginal bleeding or bleeding caused by ovulation can occur just before your period which may somehow resemble a period. If you have unprotected sex on those days, you can probably get pregnant.



During ovulation, the egg released can be healthy for just twenty four hours (that is one day). If the egg does not come into contact with a healthy sperm within the time range (that is 24 hours) in order to fertilize, it will no longer be useful. It will lose it value or fertility right after that time range.


Probability of conceiving during post ovulation stage is quite low due to the increase in progesterone levels. The high level of progesterone released during post ovulation sometimes prevents the release of egg. 

Now let's take a look at how a lady can get pregnant during your period.
Twenty eight to thirty two day cycle is quite common in most women. Probability of pregnancy during the period of women with that cycle and an average two to eight period is very, very low.
Can you get pregnant during your period if you are on a birth control pills? 
Yes you can! You can surely get pregnant during your period even if you are on birth control pills. Why? Because, pills and any other contraceptive cannot provide hundred percent assurance that you would not conceive during sex.


Let us take a look at how you can get pregnant just after your period.
Sometimes, the absence of ovulation cannot even stop a woman from conceiving. By the fourth day of your menstrual cycle, production of reproductive hormones increases. Even though egg will somehow not be released yet that fourth day, the probability of conceiving is extremely high. This is because, in the conducive cervical mucus, a sperm can live for about five days. Having sex toward the end of your period can possibly result in pregnancy.





If maybe you have had an unprotected sex during your period and you would like to know if you have conceived, these are the symptoms you should check out for after two to three weeks:
1. Tenderness of the breast
2. Abdominal cramps
3. Nausea
4. Vomiting
5. Fatigue
