The only time a woman can get pregnant is when she ovulates. The egg can be fertilised for about 36 hours. However sperm has been known to live in the vaginal tract/womb/fallopian tubes for up to 5 days, so while a woman can only get pregnant when she ovulates ie when an egg is available for the sperm to fertilise, the length of time that sperm can live for must also be considered when timing intercourse.

Yes, there's always a small chance to get pregnant by pre-cum.

It is possible to get pregnant at any time, but it is much less likely during menstruation. Yes you can get pregnant during you period but it is a very low chance that it will happen. The best time to get pregnant is when you are ovulating and that is normally 14 days before your period.

it is a very little chance that you can get pregnant four days after your period. this is because you have to ovulate to get pregnant, and ovulating happens halfway in your menstruation cycle. once ovulating has occurred, the egg must be fertilised within 24 hours.

Yes, women ovulate BEFORE each period, so even before the first time we have our period, we ovulate. There is always that chance that they are about to start. (Ovulating is when the egg comes down)

Get a ovulation kit they tell you when your ovulating and increase the chance of getting pregnant good luck hope for the best in the future!

It is still possible as it difficult to pinpoint exact ovulation time.

Im amazed this has even been asked - of course you can get pregnant your first time. If you're ovulating you have a high chance of getting pregnant if you use no protection.

if the condom was torn and u were ovulating then ---there is a high chance u can get pregnant because u are fmost fertile on ur ovulating days.

Yes, you could be pregnant. Take a pregnancy test if you miss your next period. It all depends on when you ovulate. If you were ovulating then, there's a good chance that you could be pregnant.

No method of birth control is a 100% guarantee, and this includes both the depo shot and pulling out. Although the chance may be small, there is still a chance that you can get pregnant If your partner pulls out, there is a chance that his pre-ejaculate, which he may not be aware he is producing, may contain sperm cells that could possibly impregnate you. But the biggest concern is whether or not you are ovulating. If you aren't ovulating, then it is impossible for you to get pregnant. However, there is a chance (small, but a chance nonetheless) that you are ovulating, despite the depo shot, and you may be unaware. So, here you have two methods of birth control, pulling out and the depo shot. Using them both will greatly reduce your chances of getting pregnant, but be aware that there is always a chance of getting pregnant, however small. The more methods of birth control you use, such as a condom, a diaphragm, or spermicidal foam, the fewer your chances of getting pregnant.

If you're ovulating when that happens, you're going to get pregnant. If you're not there's a MUCH smaller chance of you getting pregnant. Almost 0%.

no! its like asking if a man can make u pregnant if hes infertile! u get the odd miracle cases but theres a very low chance!

yes as ovulation is the time when the egg can be fertilized to get pregnant. the mores times you have sex during that period the higher chance you have of getting pregnant

Yes, you can't get pregnant unless you ovulate. If you ovulate in spite of taking the birth control pill, you could get pregnant.

well it depends, if you have yet to start your period, then no there is no chance of you getting pregnant. however if you have, there is a small chance that you could get pregnant, but under certain circumstances, you would have to be ovulating for you to conceive

yes, you can. If it happens that you are ovulating on or around the day you had unprotected sex there is a strong chance for pregnancy to occur.

NO. when you ovulate: its when your egg drops and you have a chance to get pregnant. BUT the eggis only there for 12-24 hours. so the sperm has to reach the egg within that period. if not , then you dont get pregnant.

The chance is rare provided your are very sure that u werent ovulationg Pretty slim to none. Hello. A woman does not need to be ovulating for her to conceive a baby. When a woman is ovulating this is her most fertile time and means she is at high risk of pregnancy. Outside of this period a woman can still conceive a baby but the risk is low. If there arent any problems with u getting pregnant most likely ur going to get pregnant A woman under 30 has a 1 in 4 chance of getting pregnant if she has unprotected sex on the day she ovulates.

If you had sex while you were ovulating, then there is a big chance. Take a preg test to make sure.

There is no chance. If your period was on it means that there is no way that you could have been ovulating. Don't worry.

Yes. Unprotected sex always has a chance of pregnancy, that chance goes up depending on your cycle and general health.
