no way. that is the safest time to have sex - the egg is not in the right place, the cervical mucous dosen't allow sperm through, and you are shedding your endometrium - so where is implantation going to take place?

ANSWER #12 of 16

The answer to your questions is, 'Yes.' There is a possibility that you can get pregnant while you're menstruating. The egg that is waiting to be fertilized can be fertilized while it's in the uterus.

Once the egg is fertilized, there is the possibility that the zygote can implant itself along the uteren wall, release hormones to signal your body to start producing chemicals in your body to begin the gestation cycle.

Many women even have some bleeding while they're pregnant and mistakenly think that they've started their menstrual cycle.

The best thing to do is wait a couple of weeks, get tested with an OTC (over the counter) pregnancy test.

If it's false, then you're not pregnant, if it's positive, go make an appointment with your GYN and get a check-up.

Remember, if you're not planning a pregnancy, please use protection to prevent unwanted pregnancies and contracting STDs.

Don't let the "heat of the moment" cloud your judgement. Stay safe!

ANSWER #13 of 16

Hey Chicky,

Though possible, it is highly unlikely that you will get pregnant during your monthly menstrual cycle. During your period, your body works to shed the uterine lining that it has been building up over the last month, in preparation for pregnancy. When you don’t become pregnant, small uterine contractions begin, encouraging the unfertilized egg and unused endometrium to be shed from the uterus and through the vagina. This means that there is no egg in the fallopian tubes to become fertilized and no lining to help a developing embryo to implant properly.

This being said, there is a small possibility of pregnancy during your period. Women often mistake slight bleeding that can occur with ovulation as their period. Unprotected sex at this time can greatly increase your chances of becoming pregnant. Additionally, sperm can live in the female reproductive system for up to three days. Because some women ovulate at the very end of their menstrual periods, sperm may still be alive at this point, and able to fertilize an egg.


ANSWER #14 of 16

it is possible, but the likelihood is not as great as when you are actually ovulating. it isnt a stupid question, its happened to me, and I was freaking out. just take a good branded pregnancy test to calm your nerves. anything is possible, but it is not to likely in this case
