Might be dumb, but can sperm live through a period??

So-if I had unprotected sex a 2 days before my period-get that period (lasts 4 days), and my fertility window begins exactly 6 days after that episode of unprotected sex-can sperm live for 7 days in the tubes?

Just wondering if that is possible since the sperm are in the tubes and not the uterus when its shedding?? Is this scientifically impossible??

  • Nope, unless you had fertile cervical mucous.

  • Even if they are already in the tubes? They don't survive in the tubes...I thought that is where they hang out....Ok, thanks!

  • i actually just asked my doc the other day about this and its impossible to get pregnant when your on your period cause the reason why you bleed is because there is skin shedding off of your cervix or something like that when its that time and you need it to be roughin order for the sperm to latch on i swear that is the truth i just didnt describe it well
