HI LADIES, LET ME START OFF BY SAYING THAT MY HUSBAND WILL NOT HAVE SEX WITH ME WHEN I'M ON MY CYCLE. HE REFERS IT TO "ARE YOU ON THAT"? I THOUGH I WAS DONE WITH MY CYCLE BECAUSE THERE WAS NO BLOOD ON MY PAD SO ME AND MY HUSBAND HAD SEX. AFTER THAT I WENT TO THE BATHROOM AND SURE ENOUGH THEIR WAS BLOOD. THEN A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER IT HAPPENED AGAIN, WE HAD SEX THEN THERE WAS BLOOD. MY QUESTION IS ARE YOU BETTER OFF HAVING SEX ON YOUR CYCLE TO GET PREGNANT OR NOT?

I'm not POSITIVE on this but I'm pretty sure that would be a 'no'. While it is possible to get pregnant while on your period, I do believe the chance of it happening is significantly less than later on. Sperm only lasts so long inside of you, so it needs to be done within the window of O. It is possible to O while on your period but it is not very common, from what I understand.

Did that make any sense? lol probably not. If nothing else, here is a BUMP

I think that your chances of getting pregnant would be higher when you have sex when you dont have your period, although I have heard that you can still get prego when you have your period but the chances are not high. The best time is when you are ovulating. I hope this helps.

it is possible to get pregnant shortly after ur period depending on how long ur cycle is..if u have say a 26days cycle and ur period lasts for a wk u could O a couple days after u stop bleeding so if u had sex while on ur period u could get pregnant..(sperm can live UPTO 5days inside u)..but it is not typical to get pregnant while on ur period cuz u r usually not going to be Oing while on ur period..
