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. This is the time of the month when you’re most likely to get pregnant. It’s unlikely that you’ll get pregnant just after your period, although it can happen.
Can you get pregnant in the last day of your period?
How likely am I to get pregnant by having intercourse on the last day of my period? It’s possible to get pregnant any time you have unprotected sex, regardless of what day it is in your cycle. Sperm can live in a woman’s reproductive tract for about six days, so it’s always best to use protection.
What is the percentage of getting pregnant the day after your period ends?
Chances of getting pregnant
|Timing of sex relative to ovulation||Average chance of pregnancy|
|2 days before ovulation||33%|
|1 day before ovulation||42%|
|the day of ovulation||20%|
|the day after ovulation||8%|

Can you get pregnant the day before your period and still bleed?
Yes, but it’s unlikely you’ll get pregnant just before or just after your period. You are most fertile when you ovulate, so this is when you’re most likely to get pregnant.
Can I get pregnant on the 6th day of my period?
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 I get pregnant 3 days after my period?
Yes! Having unprotected sex at any time is risky and can result in pregnancy. Sometimes ovulation — the time when a girl is most likely to become pregnant — can happen within a few days of when your period ends. Also, sperm can fertilize an egg for 72 hours (3 days) after ejaculation.
Can you ovulate right after your period?
Many women typically ovulate around 12 to 14 days after the first day of their last period, but some have a naturally short cycle. They may ovulate as soon as six days or so after the first day of their last period.
What is the safest day to avoid pregnancy?
Ovulation will occur one day during your fertile window. The egg released is viable for 12 to 24 hours. That doesn’t mean you can get pregnant every day during this window. But if you’re trying to prevent pregnancy, you should abstain from unprotected sex during the entire fertile window.
What happens on day 24 of cycle if pregnant?
Day 15-24: Fertilization and Implantation
Your fallopian tubes will help the egg travel down towards the uterus—and if it encounters a sperm and becomes fertilized, the egg could eventually attach itself to the uterine lining. This stage (called implantation) is when a pregnancy officially begins.
What are the signs of pregnancy in the first week?
Pregnancy symptoms in week 1

- breast changes including tenderness, swelling, or tingling feeling, or noticeable blue veins.
- frequent urination.
- raised basal body temperature.
- bloating in the belly or gas.

How can one get pregnant fast?
Experts say the best way to get pregnant fast is to have sex once a day, every other day, during the fertile window right before and after ovulation. If you have sex too often, your partner’s sperm count may be reduced, and if you don’t have enough sex, the sperm may be old and unable to swim as fast.
Can I be pregnant if I had my period last month but not this month?
It’s common to have light spotting or bleeding in early pregnancy, but it wouldn’t be like your normal period. You can have a late period or skip it altogether for lots of reasons — stress, being sick, using hormonal birth control, or just being a teenager.
