In an average 28 day cycle, a woman is fertile for about two days. Sperm generally survive inside of the woman's body for about 48 hours. They CAN live up to 5 days, but very few make it that long, and the odds of pregnancy from those few remaining sperm are virtually nil, so we'll use the 48 hour l…

Ignore the previous answer saying that vaginal fluids are acidic and cause sperm to die. If anything, the opposite is true.

Maybe you are not pregnant since you already had your period for 3 days.

Abnormal Periods as Symptoms
I had a abnormal period, but found out I was not pregnant. Its my understanding that although pregnancy can occur right before your period starts or during if you have unprotected sex buts it very very very unlikely.
I was totally impatient too. My doctor said that a blood test would
show positive 10 days after conception, and I was dying to know so
I went in 10 days after my blue line. The test was negative, I
cried and cried, wanted to die for awhile, accepted it, and looked
forward to the next month. Then two…
Yes, you could still be pregnant. Home tests are only 50% accurate in telling you whether you are or not when it comes out negative, but if it comes out positive then it is 99.9%, because there is a hormone your body produces only if you are pregnant called hCG but it can be very low a…
No Not always a blood test is more accurate, but not necessarily more sensitive. A lot depends on the lab.
