Although it is possible to get pregnant in the days leading up to your period, it isn’t likely. You can only get pregnant during a narrow window of five to six days a month. When these fertile days actually occur depends on when you ovulate, or release an egg from your ovary.
Can I be pregnant if I got my period the next day?
While you may assume that you are safe from pregnancy in the first few days following your period, you are actually moving into a new fertility window. As such, pregnancy is possible. Remember that on a 28- to 30-day cycle, the fertility window is usually between Days 11 and 21.
Are you fertile the day before your period?
Ovulation happens about 14 days before your period starts. If your average menstrual cycle is 28 days, you ovulate around day 14, and your most fertile days are days 12, 13 and 14. If your average menstrual cycle is 35 days ovulation happens around day 21 and your most fertile days are days 19,20 and 21.
How likely is it to get pregnant 2 days before your period?
The probability of conceiving if you have sex two or three days before your period is extremely low. Since your egg lives for around 12 to 24 hours after it is released, this means your fertility window closes soon after you ovulate. However, there is always a risk of pregnancy.
Can you get your period and still be pregnant in the first month?

Can you tell if your pregnant 3 days before your period?
Some women experience common early pregnancy symptoms like tender breasts, nausea, fatigue, sensitivity to smell or bloating within days after conception, or about a week-and-a-half before your period is scheduled to arrive.
When do you ovulate after a 3 day period?
Your menstrual cycle begins on the first day of your period and continues up to the first day of your next period. You’re most fertile at the time of ovulation (when an egg is released from your ovaries), which usually occurs 12 to 14 days before your next period starts.

What are chances of getting pregnant from Precum?
The odds of getting pregnant from precum are very small. As mentioned above, it’s estimated that 4 in 100 women will get pregnant using the withdrawal method correctly. Even if the man pulls out and ejaculates away from the vagina or vulva area, there is a 4% chance that pregnancy may result.
What are safe days of not getting pregnant?
An egg can survive for up to 24 hours after release, and sperm can survive for up to 7 days after sex. Therefore, it is also possible to get pregnant in the 2 days after ovulation, but this is less likely. As a result, there are around 21 days in the menstrual cycle on which pregnancy is less likely.
Can sperm survive in menstrual blood?
While it’s extremely unlikely, the simple answer is yes. Women are not able to conceive whilst on their period, but sperm survives within the female reproductive system for up to five days. This means that a tiny fraction of women do have a small chance of becoming pregnant from unprotected sex during their period.
Can you bleed like a period in early pregnancy?
