Q&A: Can I get pregnant while I have my period?

Ok, so once and for all: Can you get pregnant when you're menstruating?

Re: Ok, so once and for all: Can you get pregnant when you're menstruating?

The Bump Expert

Technically you could. However, this is actually incredibly rare, since you need to be ovulating to get pregnant. While menstruating, your body is expelling the materials of a failed pregnancy -- your ovum, uterine lining, etc. That doesn't mean you still shouldn't take precautions if you aren't trying to have a baby. It's best to keep birth-control measures consistent.

However, if you've found a rare man that isn't freaked out by sex at that time of the month, lucky you! If you do decide to have sex during that time of the month, you can do what many couples do to save muss 'n' fuss: have sex in the shower. But others simply drape some towels over the bed linens so they feel free to get up to whatever they want.

Q&A: Can I get pregnant while I have my period?

I got prego with my only son when I was on my period. I have a very irregular cycle. We have been TTC for over a year now and the sex while ovulating isn't working. We are now TTC when I have my cycle. (lucky me) Hopefully this will work the second time around. This is our first month trying our new method, so I'll let you all know how it goes!

Q&A: Can I get pregnant while I have my period?

you can definitely get pregnant during your period - but only if you ovulate early that cycle, or if you have irregularly short cycles. for those of you who know about their mucus cycles, this can be seen when there are no dry days between the menstration and the beginning of the mucus cycle. pretty much every woman will ovulate early at least once in their life - so it's not likely, but it's possible.

Sperm can live for 3-5 days inside the vagina. Even if you do not ovulate during your period, if you have a short cycle or ovulate early, its not difficult cor conception to happen.kirploink, I would find a new doctor.

Q&A: Can I get pregnant while I have my period?

It is possible. Rare, but possible.. Not all women ovulate at the same time. According to my LMP I shouldn't be pregnant right now either but I am!

According to my due date I got pregnant when I had just gotten off my period. And the crazy thing is...I was out of town without my husband for the whole week that I was on my period and I had just gotten home on my set date of conception but I know for a fact that we shouldn't be pregnant right now! This baby really is a miracle I guess!! :)
