I'm serious when I ask this question, so pls no jokes, no obscene talk,etc....

As a 34 y old woman I should know this, but a recent discussion with my teen daughter shows I could have been wrong all my live.

Can a woman get pregnant during her menstruation when she doesn't take anitconception pills or any other kind of birthcontrol?

I always thought and have been told "no"... most of my female friends also say "no" and I pretty much remember being taught "no" at school and by my mother...

but now my daughter says "yes" (they taught her at school)
So I went google and to my surprise a lot of people say "yes, you can get pregnant during your menstruation".
well actually the opinions vary, one says "yes" another comments with "no"

if the answer is indeed yes then I'm lucky to never have had an 'accident' in the past, lol
But anyway, does anyone here knows the correct answer? (btw, the men can reply to if they know the answer)
I'll be also asking my MD next time I visit her.

Then what would be the point of ovulation? Now I'm sure you can get pregnant at any time, most likely rare but happens. There's one week a month you are highly fertile. Just to be safe, assume there's a risk everyday of the month for your child's sake
maybe that's why her teacher said yes because even though rare, it happens so you can't really say no..

I was under the impression it was possible since sometimes the body will release two or more eggs. The first if unfertilised will slough off and bring about what is a normal menstral period, but the second could be still within the fellopian tube.

Yes...

www.wisegeek.com...

I don't know how you feel about Birth Control.. but I have believed for years that Women are dying from Cancers associated with that nasty chem. I will add... does that mean we don't take it anymore and have baby baby baby..no... let's go back to the old Value system of NOT DTF...(sexual interCourse..lol) with every TOM, DICK, SALLY around 2: 45a.m. lol

And when both parties respect each other.. there is safe birth control with being responsible that will absolutely keep you baby free and happy until you've decided to have a child.
and NO.. I wasn't preaching at the OP.. I'm sure this woman knows...lol just trying to be helpful. Please don't put your little girls on that toxic crap!

exactly what I said "then what's the point of ovulation if you can get pregnant every day of your cycle"

Firstly I want to educate my daughter the right way but she's still to young for anticonception...
Secondly, I don't take birth controll pills anymore, I stopped a few months ago after taking it for 13 years... so I need to know how things work aswell, lol... I'm not up for another child.
I also need to educate my husband on this matter because he keeps saying 'no no no, you can't get pregnant!' LOL smartass!

I was always told yes, because when your body is "cleansing", it's not always doing it from all sections of the uterus at once.
BTW, make sure you tell her she can still get preg. on birth control, I have two sons to prove it! LOL

The human body's a weird and wonderful thing. Sometimes it just doesn't run by the textbook.

Sperm can survive for 5 days inside, so although it is rare, it can happen.

yup, and is that the only reason why they say you can get pregnant during mensturation? Because of the survival of the sperm untill ovulation takes place?

well I guess in that case, having a constant cycle and doing some math... pregnancy can be avoided after all. I read on the net that some of the counting techniques work 100% to avoid pregnancy. But then again, I dont think any technique is 100% safe.

I had an examination last year to check if the bc pills worked well with me and it did. They look inside with a camera and somehow they can tell if it works or not, it depends from woman to woman.

I'm just glad I never had an accident because from what ive read so far I've been pretty careless...

Yes, cancer is one of the reasons why I stopped taking them, I was taking the pills for so many years and sooner or later it's to long. Were still desiding on what other bc to go on (well, hubby is still desiding if you know what I mean, lol)
but cancer is something that is on my mind a lot lately since my father died from it.

I'm glad we can ask each other these kind of questions without people looking weird,

Yep, and they are both crazy strong willed yet today!



Also, I had heard somewhere that sperm could survive 7 days.
