Okay scarleteen, here I am. For days I've been researching ovulation conception fertilization, fertile days and so on and have not been able to find the answer to this one question. Is it possible to have intercourse 2 days before your period, have your period and still be pregnant? This all being in the idea a girl possibly has a luteal phase defect and could possibly ovulate a day before her period. So in the case this did happen and an egg was fertilized 1 day before your period would it be possible to have a period and still be pregnant?

Hi cole,

First of, what kind of contraception was used during the incident in question?

To answer your question, I am going to quote from this article: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/advice/what_do_you_want_to_know_about_periods_and_sex

"Because a period has you shedding the lining needed for a fertilized egg to implant in, and because around the time a period starts, there usually is not an egg available to be fertilized, it would be very unusual to become pregnant with timing like this. When you get your period after a risk- so long as it comes around the time you expected it and looks and feels like your usual period -- it's usually safe to assume pregnancy did not or is not going to occur from that risk.

It was dry humping with fluid contact. The reason I'm asking is because I've seen sometimes some woman ovulate twice in a month and the second time can occur or has days before their period. So in the scenario lets say a woman did ovulate twice, I know the odds are slim, and semen did somehow find it's way to the tubes. Would it even be possible for fertilization to occur 1 day before the period, have the fertilized egg stay in the tubes for the longest period of 12 days, have the period and then the egg be able to implant after the period.

If you are referring to dry humping where at least one person had clothes on, then there was no risk of pregnancy.

When you say you've seen a woman ovulate twice in one month, what do you mean, exactly? Was this someone who was charting their cycles carefully? That is something that can occur, but someone would have to be charting in order to know it had.

I don't know that we can say the scenario you're describing could never happen at all, in the entirety of human history. Is it at all likely? No. I think what Sam quoted above, the part that says
quote:
"When you get your period after a risk- so long as it comes around the time you expected it and looks and feels like your usual period -- it's usually safe to assume pregnancy did not or is not going to occur from that risk."
is the thing to keep in mind here.
