Is it possible to get pregnant on the 3rd day of your period? Also i was wondering if its even ok to engage in any sexual contact during your period.

Pregnancy is possible any time of the cycle, it's just more or less likely at given times. So, if you're looking to prevent pregnancy, you'll want to use birth control methods, just like at any other time of your cycle.

There's nothing that makes any kind of sex during menstruation unsafe, save that because there is blood present, there is an increased risk to partners of blood-borne STIs like HIV or Hepatitis.

Do be sure to search the site first before posting questions though like we ask in the registration agreement, okay?

For instance, this is one of several pieces we;ve got there on sex and periods which answers these questions: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/advice/sex_period

Sorry about that and thank you. Actually i did not have intercourse but i was dry humping my boyfriend in my heated car. He ejaculated in him pants but i think it would be very difficult for sperm to travel through his boxers, his pants, then my pants and underwear and the pad i was wearing. I saw one of your articles saying its not possible. This website is helpful. I hope that what i said was accurate. Feel free to comment back if there is anything in my situation that may be corrected, i would very much appreciate it.

If you need to figure out your level of risk, this is a good place to staCan I Get Pregnant, or Get or Pass On an STI From That?
