  • it all depends on your menstrual cycle. The only way to really know is to chart your temperature and discharges (aka Natural Family Planning). You'd be surprised at how different cycles can be.

  • why is that unlikely?? there are plenty of people who have gotten pregnant WHILE on their period...if someone doesn't want to get pregnant, either wear protection or don't have sex...that simple. because ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!

  • It depends on how long your cycle is and when you ovulate. And what you mean by "10 days after"--10 days after you start? 10 days after you finish? With a "normal" 28-day cycle, ovulating on day 12, you've got as good a chance as ever. If you have a 28-day cycle but ovulate on day 17, not so likely. If you have a 21-day cycle, you would probably ovulate earlier than day 10, so it might be too late. If you have a 35-day cycle, you wouldn't ovulate until at least day 19, so day 10 would be too early.

    But if you mean 10 days after you finish your period, then it's a whole different ball park, since you have to add on the days during your period.

    So basically, if you want a straight yes or no answer, yes it's possible, but how likely depends on your cycle. If you want anything more definite, we need more information.

  • If you ovulated and the egg is there yes. If not, then no.
