Hi, -------------- Yes, you can get pregnant if you had unprotected sex 4 days before your ovulation. The second part of your question is not clear: If you got your period than you can't be pregnant (this time). Hope it's a period and not some kind of discharge. ------------ Best regards,

Love is the battery of life....


    I agree with my friend OronD, gave him 2 thumbs up.  You said you had a period in late September.  You could have miscarried.  If you got pregnant, you could have been 9 weeks pregnant.  Please see your Obstetrician.

Be honest and be true to yourself.

Count 14 days from the first day of your last period, and that is the first day of your ovulation.  Day 14-17 is your most fertile.  You will also notice a thicker discharge during that time which helps the sperm move to your egg.  Even though you had unprotected sex 4 days before ovulation, it is possible, but unlikely that you would get pregnant. If you DO NOT want to get pregnant, DO NOT have unprotected sex.  If you do...use the tips above.

Yes its possible that you can get pregnant.

They tend to think you are most likely to get pregnant

3-4 days before you ovulate and on the day you ovulate.

umm...you had your period so no, you could not have a chance of being pregnant. If you have a period, you flush the egg and all the nutrients needed for a baby to survive. ONLY ON A VERY VERY RARE occasion does a person get pregnant and still have a period.
