Can you get pregnant on your periods

A woman is most likely to get pregnant in the middle of their menstrual cycle. This is called the fertile window. The chances of becoming pregnant are very low before and after the fertile window, but it is still possible to get conceive, and there are several factors to consider such as

  • Sperms have a long life
  • Short Menstrual Cycle
  • Ovulation Spotting
  • Longer Menstrual Cycle

When the ovary releases an egg in the middle of their periods is known as ovulation. The egg travels into the uterus, where a sperm cell can fertilize it. The egg can only survive for 12–24 hours after ovulation. For this reason, egg meets a sperm cell in the time for pregnancy to occur.

Menstrual cycles are still “normal” if the period comes every 24–38 days. So, the menstrual cycle length varies from one person to another. Women with shorter menstrual cycles & it may ovulate closer to their period than people with longer cycles.

The variation in the length of the menstrual cycle and the timing of ovulation make it difficult to tell when a person has a fertile period. On top of this, sperm can live for 3–5 days inside a woman’s body, which means that a person can get pregnant even if they have sexual intercourse 5 days before they ovulate.

Some of the infertility doctors suggest that having sexual intercourse on the day before ovulation will carry the same chances of getting pregnant as having sexual intercourse several times throughout the menstrual cycle.

During the period, a woman’s body discharges blood, an unfertilized egg & tissue from the lining of the uterus. The average female will bleed for around 5 days. It is very common to bleed for shorter or longer periods.

So, it is possible to become pregnant during the period.
