Okay, so I took a child pysch. class and I remember learning that there is a certain time in your cycle where you are most likely to conceive. Well I am supposed to start my period in a couple days or so and I had unprotected sex last night. Yes, I know that was awful and it's the first time I've ever done something so irreresponsible, but I am getting the morning after pill today. However, I was just curious if anyone knew if at that point in my cycle my chances of pregnancy were higher. Oh and don't give me a lecture on STD's cuz it was with my 2year long boyfriend and we have both been tested several times before we had sex with each other.

Here's the thing about ovulation--no one can tell you when YOU ovulate. The best way to figure that out is to chart your basal temperature, and mucus consitency for a couple months--then you can tell when you are ovulating. But this method is used for couples TRYING to concieve. It is not a form of birthcontrol.
Also, many young women have erratic periods, erractic ovulation, and some ovulate more than once a month.
And here's your STD Lecture: Congratulations to both you and your partner for getting regular testing.
