Am I Pregnant? Calculate Your Chances of Being Pregnant 440


Let’s start out by getting this out of the way, no one, in the whole wide world, can tell you whether you are or are not pregnant over the Internet. I can’t. A quiz can’t. Scrutinizing timing and symptoms can’t. Google can’t. The only way to confirm a pregnancy is in person via examination, urine, or blood testing. Regardless, I get a ton of comments here at Gremlins asking, ”could I be pregnant?” or “am I pregnant?” So, that leaves us at what can I tell you? I mean I’ve responded to 600+ comments on the subject, and I’ve had something to tell them all.

NEW: Pregnancy Chances Quiz Betaam i pregnant chances of getting pregnant

The quiz linked above uses the information on this page. It’s still recommended you read below to understand your results.

How do you know if you’re pregnant?

When I respond to comments asking am I pregnant this I what I consider, my steps to calculating your chances of being pregnant….

The first factor you want to consider is timing. When was:

-Your last period
-The date of intercourse
If you know, the date of ovulation is also quite useful. You can find a full guide to pinpointing ovulation here.

Understanding when you can get pregnant helps a great deal in figuring out your chances of pregnancy. It is possible to become pregnant from intercourse at any time if you happen to be ovulating or ovulate while semen is still viable, but the chances are significantly higher during your fertile period. When is that? For most women, ovulation lands around mid-cycle. So, if your period is on average 28 days, ovulation is likely around the 14th day with day 1 being the first day of period bleeding. Note I said most. Not all women ovulate mid-cycle, and ovulation does fluctuate slightly each cycle for some. You can help guess when you are ovulating by paying attention to vaginal discharge. When you are fertile it will become more plentiful and watery. At ovulation itself, you may see egg-white-like discharge, sort of like clear snot (I know lovely imagery here.) There are also ovulation test strips you can buy if you are ttc, and basal body temping can also be a huge help.

Keep in mind that the egg survives on average 48 hours, and sperm is most viable within a 48-hour period. Sperm, however, can survive in the body for 5 or more days (studies differ on the subject).

Let’s consider some scenarios with that then.

Early intercourse: Can you get pregnant on your period?

The chances of pregnancy are low with intercourse during your period, but not impossible—remember up there where I said if there is intercourse, pregnancy is always possible. How can you get pregnant on your period? Well, because sperm can survive beyond that ideal 48-hour window, if you ovulate on the early side, it could still be around to catch the egg. It’s a scenario where the stars really have to align just right so to speak.

Ex/ 26 day cycle, 6 days active bleeding, early ovulation at day 10 (I actually had these stats when I got pregnant with baby 4) Intercourse on CD (cycle day) 5 during period, sperm can still be viable at 5+ days when the egg drops.

This, obviously, also applies to the question can you get pregnant right after your period as well, more so actually, because you are closer to mid-cycle.

Late intercourse: Can you get pregnant right before your period?

The chances of getting pregnant just before your period are lower, because while sperm can hang on quite some time in the vaginal canal, the egg is a bit more delicate. Most studies put viability at about 24 to 48 hours before it’s long gone. In this case, that means to become pregnant just before your period, you would need to ovulate quite late.

Ex/ 26 day cycle, Ovulation CD 22, Intercourse on CD 23, egg survives CD 22-23.

It would be nigh impossible to catch the following cycle’s egg this way, if you are wondering. Why? Even if intercourse was on CD 26 just before the period began, with a low probability 5-day survival you would still be looking at CD 5 for ovulation, which is very, very early, and questionably biologically possible.

Both of the above situations have a low chance of pregnancy, so what has a high chance?

Mid-cycle Intercourse: The ideal time for pregnancy

The closer to mid-cycle the intercourse is, the higher the chance of pregnancy. In general, because ovulation does fluctuate, anything after about CD9 and about a week before the end of your cycle can be considered a fertile period.

Ex/ 26 day cycle: fertile period from CD 9 to CD 19. Peak (ovulation) probable at CD 12-14

Side note, what if you don’t get periods?

Just because you aren’t having a menstrual period doesn’t necessarily mean you also aren’t ovulating. It’s entirely possible you just have very long cycles. Most women who don’t get periods, do have occasional bleeding. Lack of menstruation can mean you aren’t ovulating or it can mean you just aren’t doing so regularly. Either way, this is something you should speak with a care provider about as it is often indicative of an underlying condition.

Next, let’s talk about symptoms.

I’m going to come right out and say I don’t consider them at all. They are irrelevant this early, but then, I do have a quiz on early symptoms of pregnancy here, so why the hypocrisy there? You will not have pregnancy symptoms before you are pregnant. Period. This falls back in to timing. After sperm meets egg, it takes 6-12 days for that fertilized egg to find its way to the uterus and implant, it takes another 48 hours on average for pregnancy hormones to get high enough to even start to be detectable—that’s 8 to 14 days after fertilization which could be up to 48 hours after ovulation. Until that egg implants, you aren’t pregnant. There are no pregnancy hormones, your symptoms aren’t pregnancy related. I have a pregnancy symptom quiz, yes, but with big warnings all over it that it applies after a missed period (which for most is about 14 days after ovulation).

You may now be thinking to yourself, puh, this lady don’t know Jack or his sister Sally’s ovaries, because I had pregnancy symptoms before my last pregnancy. The thing is one of the major players in all those fun pregnancy side effects is progesterone, and progesterone is actually present in the body before pregnancy. Its production is super-charged by ovulation, and its purpose is to maintain a pregnancy. So, if you don’t get pregnant, it drops, and you get a period, if you do, it continues to rise. A high progesterone cycle will mimic the symptoms of pregnancy from nausea to gas. Pregnancy symptoms are basically PMS on steroids.

Down to the details….

Next, I look at the specifics. Not everyone wants a baby. Sometimes people are commenting desperately hoping I’ll say, “Hah, fat chance. You aren’t pregnant.” There are some common situations that decrease fertility and reduce the chances of pregnancy even if it’s mid-cycle.

I was on birth control when we had sex, can I be pregnant?

No method of birth control outside of not having sex offers 100% protection. Most forms are pretty dependable if carried out properly, we’re talking in the 90ish percentile, but even if there was a condom or birth control, it is still possible to become pregnant, the chance is just very small.

What if the condom fell off, broke, or came off inside of me?

Condoms break, slip off, and though it may be embarrassing to admit sometimes even come off inside of women. In all of the above cases, it is possible sperm escaped and pregnancy could occur. Plan-B or the morning after pill are usually a good idea in this circumstance, as well, chances or pregnancy are a lot higher than if the condom had stayed on.

He pre-ejaculated without protection, can that cause pregnancy?

Yes. Pre-cum (the liquid that sometimes precedes a true ejaculation) does sometimes contain sperm and can result in pregnancy. A man has no control over pre-ejaculation. This is why the pull-out method of birth control can fail and a condom should not just be used for ejaculation, but also during the entire sexual act if condoms are your primary source of birth control.

Can I get pregnant from masturbation with another, anal sex, or dry humping?

This comes down to two variables. In all three situations, what matters is if there was semen involved and if it touched your vagina. Even if there is no penetration involved in the sex, if semen comes in contact with your vagina on fingers, clothing or any other object, pregnancy can occur. The chances in this case, are again, decreased, if clothing was involved the chance of pregnancy is even lower, nigh on nonexistent, but not impossible. If there was no semen, or precum, there is no chance of pregnancy.

We had sex in water, am I pregnant?

While sperm can survive in water for a short time, unless the ejaculation occurred within your body, chances are very slim you are pregnant. If the semen was inside of you, the sex being within water will have no effect on your chances of pregnancy.

After you take all of the above into consideration, you should be able to calculate your own chances of getting pregnant– or being pregnant for that matter– to answer the question am I pregnant.

    I stopped taking my birth control 2 weeks prior to when my boyfriend and I had intercourse. 3 out of the 5 days I was ovulating we had sex. I’m not suppose to start my period until June 7th but am worried because I have been dizzy, have had frequent head aches, nauseous, moody, constipated sometimes, bloated, super tired, and today my boobs have been itchy and have been hurting like crazy. Should I be worried? If so when should I take a test?

    • unwirklich admin

      You won’t have pregnancy symptoms before a missed period unless you have a very long cycle. Though if your aim is not to become pregnant, coming off BC and having intercourse during ovulation is not a very good idea. You can test anytime after a missed period, but 4 days is most accurate.

  • Laysha

    Hello,first of all I know that no one can tell me exactly if im pregnant or not but I just have this doubt and I would appreciate if you gave me your opinion. My last period was on May 7th (a 32 day cycle..quite rare for me..I’m between 28-30 days),according to my period track app..my fertile days would’ve been from May18th (cycle day 12) through May 24th (cycle day18),on May 15th (cycle day 9) I had intercourse but we used a condom and he didin’t finish inside,then on May 18th we just rubbed our genitals (sorry for being so crude),there was no penetration and he didin’t finish until way later,but I think there was pre-seminal fluid in contact with my parts. Then on the 21th I felt a “cramp”, it’s more a pinch-like feeling I have,not in the abdomen but in the inner part of the v, when I ovulate…. but I didn’t check my cm so idk if I ovulated that day, On the 24th I thought I was coming down with the flu but the next day I was back as normal only with a headache that later turned into a shiver/dizzy feeling that lasted for 2 days,then this Friday I started with light cramps/pinching feeling again til today,but my period it’s not suppoused to come till this Friday -June 3rd -(if the “cramp”on the 21th was from ovulation).And I went online (big mistake?) and looked if the cramps were normal but they all say that cramps a week or more before your period it’s mos likely pregnancy,and I’m really scared.I didn’t think it was possible to get pregnant in that way…So do you think there’s a chance that I might be pregnant?.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

      Cramping isn’t a symptom of pregnancy, at least not very early pregnancy. Some women do get some cramping and pain later in pregnancy as things down there start to stretch. I don’t think pregnancy is impossible with what you’ve said here, but very, very, very unlikely. You have one sex act with a condom 6 days before suspected ovulation and one chance of external pre-cum 3 days before. Pre-cum doesn’t always contain sperm, some studies even argue it may not at all and simply picks up stranglers from prior ejaculations on exit, either way the content is quite low if any. The chance of pregnancy with semen itself outside the vagina is already low, so you’d be looking at impressively nigh-on-impossible low chances here. I hope that helps.

    I’m 16 and my bf is 17 we have had unprotected sex almostay n multiple times thought each day for 3 months. He has came in me every time and I’ve lately been having many pregnancy symptoms. I took a pregnancy test about a 2 weeks ago and was negative. I don’t drink much water and it was like 830 at night when I took the rest. Can I still be pregnant
    Possibly.?

    • unwirklich admin

      If you have pregnancy symptoms, a test would be positive. Keep in mind though that pregnancy symptoms are just hormonal imbalance, which is common around your age, but if you don’t wish to become pregnant, some form of birth control is recommended.

    Hi, I have a somewhat irregular period (regular for a few months, then missed period or longer cycles), so it’s a bit complicated for me to identify missed periods or late periods. That being said, I had my period on March 18th, then on April 19th I had to take an emergency trip to San Francisco (I live in Puerto Rico, which is in the Caribbean) and no period came. While in San Fran, my boyfriend and I touched each other and, though he had no semen on his hands and he didn’t really put his fingers inside me, some of his semen got on my but cheek. Right after we finished, I washed myself thoroughly, being really careful that non of his semen got anywhere near my vagina. Once I flew back home on the 30th, I started to get nervous that I may have gotten pregnant. I’ve been freaking out the past 2 weeks because everything I feel my brain automatically reads it as a sign of pregnancy. I’ve had my usual PMS symptoms, which are cramps and acne, but also had constipation, diarrhea, fullness and gas. I have been reading like a crazy person, and all my stomach related symptoms are also symptoms of jet lag, but since it’s been a week and a half since I returned from San Fran, my anxiety has grown and grown. Today, May 12th, I finally got what appears to be my period, but it’s very light, so now I’m terrified that it might be implantation bleeding. I keep telling myself that it’s not pregnancy, but my mind just won’t process it. Do you think it’s just the anxiety causing all my symptoms, including the light period, or could I really be pregnant?

    • unwirklich admin

      The irregularities you describe sound a lot like those caused by a lack of ovulation (or inconsistent ovulation at the least) which puts your fertility low or nonexistent to begin with, coupled with just semen on a butt cheek promptly washed away, and yes, I’d bet you’re just dealing with some anxiety and have psyched yourself out. It would be….miraculous, that’s a good word.. if you were pregnant the chances are so slim.

    I had my Mirena removed on March 25th. April 1st-5th I had my period and then again on April 8th-10th. From that point on, I had unprotected sex on my supposedly fertile days. I have 2 apps that track my period and on both app I missed my period. All tests that I have taken came back negative. Is there a possibility that my period is late or that I may be pregnant

    • unwirklich admin

      Mirena does use hormones, so there might be some irregularity in the first few months as your body re-balances. That being said, pregnancy is also possible. I would wait until you are at least 4+ days late and retest.

      • Ashley

        I woke up earlier to use the bathroom and there was some brown discharge. What does that mean? I never experienced this before. Could it be old blood from me being on birth control, something that happens before a period, or implantation bleeding?

        • unwirklich admin

          Brown bleeding is just older blood yes. It can happen when you have very light spotting, light enough that the blood exits the body quite slowly. BC will cause some spotting yes, but IB can also be light spotting, so I suppose you have a wait and see situation. 🙂

  • lawny

    Hello. I ovulated april 27th. My lover and I had sex on april 28th, 29th and 30th. We had unprotected sex on the 28th and 29th, but used plan b after the 29th, and had sex again. My question is, is it possible the plan b could fail because I already ovulated and then took it? plan b is supposed to stop ovulation, but what if a woman already ovulates, has sex, and then used plan b?

    • unwirklich admin

      Plan B works in two ways, it stops ovulation and it thickens the uterine wall to help prevent implantation, the later in your cycle it is taken the less effective it is. After ovulation obviously it’s not stopping that, so all it did for you was thicken you lining a bit more than usual. I suppose that’s better than nothing, but also leaves a fair chance of pregnancy, so I would test if your period doesn’t come, but also keep in mind Plan B can cause some irregular spotting, so if it isn’t a normal period, it may not be a period.

    So my boyfriend and I have been having unprotected sex, he came in me on 4/16 and I started my expected period a couple hours later. Is there a chance I could be pregnant from this? My period continued with a normal 5-7 day cycle but we also had unprotected sex again towards the end.. The day after I ended my period on 4/24 he came in me and came in me again the next morning on 4/25. We’ve decided that we’re going to keep the baby if I am but I was wondering what are the chances that I’ll get pregnant? And when’s the right time to check? I’ve been so eager to get a home pregnancy test, I’ll be waiting for a response. Thanks!

    • unwirklich admin

      Pregnancy from sex just before, during, or just after a period posses a very small chance of pregnancy, it’s not impossible, but close to it (more detail here) If you want a baby, you want to aim for mid-cycle intercourse (take your cycle, divide the average days in half and that’s likely your most-fertile time) A pregnancy test is most accurate 4 days or so after a missed period.

  • Annonymous

    So the other week me and my boyfriend were messing around and things led to things and he fingered me and I don’t think he had anything on his hands and I’ve asked him about it and he says he swears he didn’t have anything on his hands, but anything can still happen. I had just gotten off my period about 3/29/16 or 3/30/16, my period usually last from 4-5 days tops. This is my first pregnancy scare and I’m stressing about it like crazy. This week I’ve had some major tests and essays and have been going to bed around 11:30 to 12 or later. Yestersay I puked in the morning and right now I’m feeling crazy nauseous as if I’ll have to run to the bathroom at anytime. I’ve noticed egg white like discharge, I’ve been very tired, I can only down certain foods, and I’ve been nauseous. My breasts arent very sore unless you press hard on them and their color is as normal as ever and earlier today I felt like I was burning up while everyone around me was cold. People said it felt like I had a fever and my face was pink. I’ve been gassy, but my poop schedule is regular, and everything that happens I freak out. I have anxiety and overthink things, A LOT, so the thought of being pregnant is consuming me, it’s all Ive been thinking about. Last week I had strep and an ear infection, and now this. I feel like everything I notice and do is a sure sign of pregnancy, Can you please help me?

    • unwirklich admin

      The chance of pregnancy from fingering is very low, especially if he did not have wet fresh semen on his hands. Semen does not live long at all outside the body. Second, immediately after your period your chances of pregnancy with actual intercourse are low even. The egg-white discharge you describe is actually probably you approaching ovulation (a fertile time). You aren’t fertile just after a period. Finally, pregnancy symptoms won’t appear until about 1 week late for your period at the earliest, so everything that’s freaking you out here, it’s completely unrelated. I would try to relax, there’s no pregnancy scare here. 🙂

    • Hey

      I’ve had two periods and my test showed negative I’ve been expecting my period and it started as a dark brown but the next morning it’s still a dark brown(filling the tampon) with a little dark red! I’d it something to worry about? It could it be the plan b acting up. I haven’t had sex in two months.

      • unwirklich admin

        Plan B will cause irregular bleeding yes, after 2 months it’s very, very unlikely you’re pregnant if your tests are still negative and you’re having timely bleeding.

  • Anonymous

    3/29 to 4/4 my boyfriend and I had Sed and he came inside me 5 times throughout that week. My period wasn’t due until 4/16 but I got it a week early. It’s not the same type of period I get either. Slight not painful cramping, the bloods kinda a bright red not dark. And the blood clots I have are bright red and thin. I’m not expecting to be pregnant, I’m just wondering if there could be a reason why?

    • unwirklich admin

      I am confused why with frequent unprotected sex you aren’t expecting pregnancy, if your period was due 4/16, you were likely in a fertile period around 4/02, right between the dates you give for intercourse. Now an early period isn’t a sign of pregnancy, but it also may not be a period. If the bleeding is light, it could be pre-period spotting or cervical bleeding from intercourse. Bright red blood is just a fresh bleed. If your bleeding doesn’t pick up and become more of a normal period, you may want to test, light bleeding in early pregnancy is actually quite common.

      • Anonymous

        Well we’d like for me to be pregnant. That’d be great. But my period it’s still bright red and not as heavy as usual and I don’t have as many blood clots as I would before. I’ve just never had a period like this so it’s weird to me.

        • unwirklich admin

          Hm, if it is heavier like a regular period, just not normal for you, it might just be a weird one. Lots of little things can throw off a single cycle, exercise, stress, diet changes, sleep changes, sun exposure…it really doesn’t take much.

          • Anonymous

            So I usually have my period for 5-6 days and it’s a normal medium flow. But this period has been light and I’m done with it and it’s only been 3 days. My cramps are kinda confusing where they’re feeling st. Like my stomach and sides. But my boobs do hurt this time and they NEVER do. It’s just all in all a weird different period and I don’t want to assume I’m pregnant or get my hopes up and I know it’s too early to know forsure.

          • unwirklich admin

            If you’re ttc, sometimes you start to notice things you just didn’t before. Honestly though, pregnancy symptoms statistically don’t come around until about a week late, so it’s best to just ignore everything in the two week wait. It’s your mind messing with you, which isn’t to say you can’t also be pregnant, and I do hope this is your month, just the symptoms aren’t pregnancy related.

    Hi, Yesterday was my last day of ovulation and I had one instance of slight yellow stretchy mucus and today one day after ovulation I have again had slight yellow stretchy mucus, what does this mean?
    Thanks

    • unwirklich admin

      Ovulation only happens on one day, typically ovulation mucus is actually egg-white in appearance, but a stretchy yellowish mucus can proceed and follow it.

        • unwirklich admin

          Yellow mucus can also be an early pregnancy sign yes, it will appear as a mucus plug forms, but that would happen 6-12 days plus after ovulation, not at ovulation. At ovulation it is a normal sign of fertility. 🙂

            Hi, now I am getting not in huge amounts thick white cream cervical mucus not stretchy or sticky , I have looked it up and it is either normal or early sign of pregnancy so confused

            My period is due on the 27.3.2016, I am planing on using a home preg test on the 22.3.2016

          • unwirklich admin

            This is still following the normal course of cervical mucus during a cycle. It should go from mostly dry, to kind of tacky, to creamy, to watery, then stretchy, then egg white, then back to stretchy, then watery, creamy, tacky, mostly dry, bleeding. Not all women get every stage, but it sounds like you are having a perfectly normal cycle.

          • Sarah

            Hi, I have had 2 headaches yesterday and one today, I had a touch of pink blood there was a small amount of dark brown discharge with it only once today , anyway I am going to test Monday and I have a doctors app for a blood test the next day 🙂

          • unwirklich admin

            If the spotting was the 23rd, probably yes, 48 hours is the bare minimum for a positive test, but then as there’s no way to know if the spotting was implantation, it’s best to wait a few days past when your period should have been.

          • Sarah

            My period is quite lite this time, could be due to stress, under weight, excess exercise, or most unlikely menopause ( I am 31yrs old), I will see if I continue to lite bleed for the next 3 days.
            Thoughts?

          • unwirklich admin

            The occasional light cycle is entirely normal, now a trend of light cycles can be hormonal imbalance, and yes, over exercising and low body fat can cause that, as can stress. I’d agree 31 would be early for menopause though.

          • Sarah

            Hi, my period this time is very lite, I have hardly had to use a tampon, I don’t do really lite periods, any way I will see how it goes next month, I did a clear blue digital preg test this morning said not pregnant, just wanted to make sure, and I have noticed in the comments posted some random videos are there what is up with that? I do not use birth control.

          • unwirklich admin

            It sounds like your test timing was fine, so it was probably just an off cycle. If it happens again this cycle I’d see your care provider.

            I’m not sure what random videos you mean. I moderate all comments, and have never received a video comment..I’m actually not sure our commenting system supports them. We do use Google Adsense on the site, which may produce video ads, but those aren’t placed within the comment section.

    Hello
    My boyfriend and I where touching each other and I only touched him for about 5 minutes then we stopped. We talked for about 5min then I drove home for about 8 and I was on my phone for another 5 then I took a shower but I forgot to wash my hands. I took a hot shower and while I was in the water I started to touch myself with the same hand. Is pregnancy possible? Could the sperms have died by the time I got home?
    Also when I finished touching him my hand was not wet it was moist
    This happened March 2 and I had my period March 7 it was on time and the same flow as always
    I am so scared

        • unwirklich admin

          You can’t get pregnant from touching a man’s genitals and then touching your own some time later. For pregnancy there has to be sperm involved (meaning rather than just touching he would have had to ejaculate) and that sperm would have to be live, which while not 100% impossible after driving him home, unless there was a puddle of sperm on your hand, there was no live sperm. Then you showered. There is just no chance of pregnancy there, try not to worry.

          • Marisa

            I’m so sorry to bother you again but I did not understand the frase you said “which while not 100% impossible after driving him home, unless there was a puddle of sperm on your hand” can you specify it for me?
            And when I touched him and I got my hand out my hand was not completely wet it was moist and when I got in the shower I did not rub my hands together, the water was just hitting my hands then I touched myself

          • unwirklich admin

            For sperm to survive a drive around the neighborhood, you would have to have a puddle on you. Sperm die the moment they dry out, unless there is a, well, kind of a puddle, that happens very quickly. Regular old tap water hitting sperm will also kill them (on direct contact, you can’t wash out your vagina after sex as a form of birth control, but running your hands under water would kill any sperm).

    Hi so my boyfriend and I just had sex. We did it anal and he said that the condom came off and that he ejaculated inside of me. Right after I felt a pain and a little burning along with white gooey stuff in my underwear. my period is suppose to come around March 10th. Do I take plan b? Or a pregnancy test?

    Hi so I have a slight problem. My boyfriend and I did it and he said the condom came off and that he ejaculated inside of me. Right after I was feeling pain and slight burning. I also notice that there was white stuff in my underwear after. If the by any chance something can happen? I get my period March 10th and I’m nervous. What should I do? Take plan b?

      If this happened today 4 days before your period, Plan B is unlikely to help, but you also are likely well past your fertile period. The chance of pregnancy is very low.

        I sent question after this one too as it didn’t show that it went through. Should I take plan b, since it was already purchased? Or should I wait until my period comes? Is it still possible I can be pregnant with these circumstances?

          The second comment was trashed because it was the same thing repeated. For anal sex 4 days before your period, Plan B is not going to help. While you can’t become pregnant from anal sex, if cum was in your underwear there is a slim chance sperm could make it to your vagina, however, 4 days before your period you are very, very, very unlikely to be fertile…and Plan B works by stopping ovulation, it won’t work after ovulation (which has long occurred by 4 days before your period. )

            I don’t recommend taking Plan B after ovulation, as it does very little, less so close to your period. All you’d do is cause a hormonal imbalance.

          • unwirklich admin

            By 4-5 days before your period, ovulation has occurred. Plan B stops ovulation, so if you’ve already ovulated, it’s pointless to take.

            You said it wasn’t, but no, not really, maybe a like .01 chance. I mean it’s really, really unlikely.

            Should I take plan b? Or wait for period to come in 3 days? I’m nervous about taking plan b.

          • unwirklich admin

            As I said before, the intercourse was AFTER ovulation. Plan B works to prevent pregnancy by preventing ovulation, so if you have already ovulated, and you have, there is no reason to take Plan B. It will not help at all.

    Hello I would like to know if there’s a chance I could be pregnant if I had unprotected sex on the 4th day of my period,my cycles are from 27-30 days,my boyfriend was inside less than a minute (30 seconds tops) and didn’t ejaculated inside ,until like 20 minutes after he pulled out he usually doesnt finish quickly,I’m expecting my period in 6 day and i feel my breast bigger and fuller,im really panicking here.
    Thanks.

      With a 27-30 day cycle, intercourse cycle day 4 with the pullout method it is very close to impossible you are pregnant. I would bet the breast changes are either psychological (because you are worrying you are pregnant) or hormonal PMS.

    Me and my boyfriend have started having sex and we started in 2/14 and on 2/14-2/15 we used the pullout method he pulled out like a minute before he came. We had sex everyday until 2/19 then haven’t since but all the other times we’ve used a condom. During the 2/11-2/17 I was ovulating and my period is supposed to come one 3/2 I’ve had a little cramping but not much just like I would before my period but my breasts are sore and itchy and seem to be getting a little bigger. Could I be pregnant?

      Possibly, the pull out method is not 100% effective because pre-cum can contain semen. It’s not a very high chance though. I would just wait and see what happens with your period. If it doesn’t come, a test is most accurate 4 days late.

          Sometimes during intercourse the cervix gets a bit beat up (being at the end of the vaginal canal). This can cause spotting from cervical damage or if you’ve just ended your period it can cause some residue blood from that cycle to make it’s way out.

            It takes a healthy couple 6 months on average to conceive, so don’t be disappointed if you don’t become pregnant right away. Particularly when coming off hormonal birth control, there can sometimes be some irregular ovulation and that can slow things down. To me your chances sound good, I just wanted to be sure you knew that sometimes even with good timing a baby takes time. 🙂 As far as testing, I actually recommend waiting until you are about 4 days late. This usually saves tests and ensures more accurate results.
