    Default Is it possible i could be pregnant

    The first day of my period was on december 26 and it ended on december 31. my husband and i had unprotected sex on january 3, 4, 5, 6 and he ejaculated inside of me each time... is it possible that i could be pregnant? because the rumors says that it's unlikely to get pregnant right after my period... i took a pregnancy test on january 12 but it says negative... Please help me!

    Yes, it's possible. Depending on the length of your cycle you could certainly have been about to ovulate by the time you had intercourse on the 6th (12th day of your cycle). How long your period bleed lasts for is pretty irrelevant when predicting typical ovulation. The earliest a test might show positive would be around the 20th of January (2 weeks after that last intercourse) but possibly not until a bit later if you ovulated the 7th or so.

    The length of your period doesn't matter much. What matters is how long from the day it starts (CD1) until the day your next period starts, regardless of how long you actually bleed. Typical/average/textbook ovulation is 14 days before your next period begins. So let's say you usually start your period every 28 days (that's the length doctors assume and date pregnancies with until an ultrasound shows actual size). That means January 23 would be the expected day of your next period. (This is hypothetical, I don't your actual normal cycle length) If this were the case you typically would have ovulated on about January 8, which would put your intercourse in a pretty good range for pregnancy. But it's way too soon to get an accurate result from a test. You need to wait until about the 20th of January, or until your period is late.

    the other thing to consider is not only if you had sex on that day or not, but the fact that if the environment is hospitable, sperm can hand out in the female body for up to 5 days. I think this is why when some people have sex during their periods, they can get pregnant if the O early in the cycle. If your next period isn't due for some time though, it would be too early to tell since your body needs to build up that hormone for a hpt to pick it up. Good luck and fingers crossed for you

    Definitely a good possibility if you're pretty regular at 29 days. I'd wait until the 23-24 to test because before that a negative definitely might not mean something. If your period doesn't come on time and you test a negative will be more likely to be accurate. Good luck!

    Yes im always regular at 29 days... So does that means that i would have ovulate around January 9 and because the sperms stays in my body for 3-5 days January 6 unprotected sex still gave me a good chance?

    Yep. Like another poster mentioned-there is much more to it than just the timing. But the easiest thing for most people to control is the timing. The pH and other factors in sperm health and uterine hospitality are a bit trickier to predict or manipulate without testing and input from fertility specialists/accupuncturists/etc. This is why it's not considered abnormal for it to take a year or better for healthy couples to conceive.
