Lightbulb Can I get pregnant the day before my period?

I had sex the day before I got my period and my husband went in me. The very next day I got my period, and now it's been 4 days since my period stoped and I feel realy weird. Has anyone gotten pregnant during this time?

It is possible to get pregnant during your period, though as the other poster said, not very likely. If you keep feeling 'weird', get a pregnancy test.

And I hope you know that the withdrawal method does not work very well as a means of birth control.

Like the others said, it is unlikely, but it would be more common if you were an adolescent or close to menopause. Otherwise, our cycles are pretty normal and our hormones are in check. We ovulate right around the fourteenth day after we start out period. Having sex two or three days around that time is when you are likely to get pregnant. But, if you are beastfeeding or recently delivered, your hormones could also be out of whack and you could get pregnant. If none of this applies to you, you are probably safe.

It is very possible. unless your on some birth control, or he was using a condom (which i suspect he wasen't). it's totally possible. you can get pregnant at ANY time, and during your period and after your period expecially is the most common time for women to be able to get pregnant. so its something to think about eh?!!

No, you're wrong. Do some research on when women typically ovulate, it isn't right before their period i can tell you that. Most women do NOT ovulate right around, or during their period. typically its 14 days after your period. It's very unlikly that she's pregnant. Simply as that.

It is not likely at all. I agree with Strand3D

Actually there is a chance it all depends on one's cycles though. The 14 day thing is just a general idea and it doesnt fit all women/girls.
Take me for example I when my body works right I tend to ovulate day 19 or 20. My normal cycle tends to be 34 to 35 days depending on when I ovulate. Thanks to other issues my body isnt working the way it should so my ovulation isnt set currently.

If a woman has short cycles the ovulation day could be well before day 14. It all depends on one's own cycle. Dont follow the 14 day rule because for many,many women it is false. That is why when women are trying to get pregnatn they wind up thinking something is wrong with them. They are going by the day 14 rule and hence actually missing their time because they are following a general idea.

A great thing to do is read the book Taking Charge Of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. It is a great book not only to learn when one is most likely fertile but just learning one's body all around.

For anyone wondering, those wacky Canadians (no offense to canadians.. I just like the way the word wacky sounds with Canadians.. ) produced this : [url="http://www.myboyorgirl.com/media/no_safe_time.htm"]http://www.myboyorgirl.com/media/no_safe_time.htm[/url]

So yes, it is possible to get pregnant before your period because its possible to ovulate more than once a month. And, in fact, happens in around 40% of women. I'd say that's pretty darned often.
