  • Yes it's possible, it's less likely to happen but it could happen. The closer your period is the less fertile you are.

  • TYPICALLY ovulation occurs about two weeks before the period. If the luteal phase (post-ovulation) is shorter than two weeks, there's a pretty high risk the pregnancy won't be viable because there hasn't been enough "prep" time. From

    "Most experts agree that a luteal phase less than 12 days does not give the uterus sufficient time to establish a nourishing lining for a growing fetus and therefore will cause a miscarriage if fertilization has occurred."

  • I have my doubts... only because the chances of that egg being viable and so on would be low. There is a reason there is roughly two weeks after your ovulation date before you start your period. Its a process... and your body needs time to do that process (hormones and all).
