ask: Can you get pregnant 11 days before your period is due???

By Angelwings23

MY LMP was 12/2/12, my cycles range from 31-33 days. I had sex with bf throughout the month of December all protected (we use condoms every time). Early on the morning of the 23rd (like 1am) we had sex. Before he put the condom on he entered me several times. He put the condom on afterwards and we resumed.
For about the past 2-3 days I have had to use the bathroom more, am sleeping more and my breasts are sore/achy and I am bloated. Is there any chance of getting pregnant 11 days before your next expected period?? Thanks.

Hello Angelwings23,
Yes. There is a very good chance that you were ovulating when you had unprotected sex on December 23.

Ovulation can be calculated by starting with the day the last menstrual period (LMP) starts or by calculating 12-16 days from the next expected period. Most women ovulate anywhere between Day 11 - Day 21 of their cycle, counting from the first day of the LMP. This is what many refer to as the "fertile time" of a woman's cycle, because sexual intercourse during this time increases the chance of pregnancy. Ovulation can occur at various times during a cycle, and may occur on a different day each month.
