Have any of you gotten pregnant from having sex while on your period? So I have been off birth control for 2 years. Hubby and I do the pull out he only ejaculates inside me when I'm on my period, and for 2 years it has worked. I am just a little worried now because we had sex on Friday which I was on my period but it was an abnormal period it was my 6th day of bleeding which I usually only last 4-5 days. Well after we had sex I didn't bleed anymore and I have this pink pad app that tells me when I'm ovulating and stuff it helps me keep track of all that and guess what... Saturday it said the flowers were blooming. So now I'm worried that I'm gonna end up pregnant. If it happens than its all our fault and we will deal with it but I just want to know if this has happened to anyone else. It's gonna be a looong couple weeks before I find out if I do get pregnant lol.

Most women have normal 28- to 32-day cycles, and if someone with this cycle has an average two- to eight-day period, she will not get pregnant during her period.

Special Circumstances

However, not every woman follows a 28- to 32-day cycle. "In less common scenarios, a woman with a shorter menstrual cycle (24 days, for example), could have seven days of bleeding, have intercourse on her final day of bleeding, and ovulate three days later," Dr. Hakakha says. "Since sperm live for three to five days, she could definitely get pregnant."

In addition, some women experience breakthrough spotting or bleeding between periods. This can occur during ovulation and be mistaken for a period, making it difficult to establish the exact place in the menstrual cycle.

If you had unprotected sex during your period and are concerned that you may be pregnant, look out for symptoms like mild lower abdominal cramping, spotting (implantation spotting, a fairly common cause of bleeding once the egg has been fertilized), breast tenderness and moodiness. These symptoms can occur as early as two weeks after ovulation.

Other, more common, pregnancy symptoms to watch out for will manifest closer to six or seven weeks' gestation, and include nausea, vomiting and severe fatigue

No because we use condoms when i'm on my period. I wouldn't want hubby to get anything nasty from my period. We also wait until i'm almost through before having sex and he wears the condom.

Would you leave the Nuvaring for three weeks and then take it out or would you leave it on for four weeks and then take it out?  I have been on the Nuvaring for 7 years.  How scary.  I have to kids and would die if that would happen to me.  blank stare

Personally, I think you could.  I got prego with my son 7 years ago because the hubs and I had sex on the last day of my period.

Please please educate yourself about this

Inside a woman's body, sperm can live for up to five days depending on the conditions. If you have unprotected sex even a few days before your partner ovulates, there is a chance of achieving a pregnancy.
