Fourth day of menstrual cycle

I started my period on May 13th and finished four days later. The same day of finishing my period, I had unprotected sex where he pulled out. My periods are usually 28-31 days apart from each other. Is there a chance of pregancy?

Is it possible to ovulate on day 4 of your cycle? I've heard that some women ovulate before day 10 but I'm not quite sure. Also, is it normal to experience yellow/brown discharge after your period?

Hello an0n,

No, it is not possible to ovulate on day 4 of your menstrual cycle because you are still having your period.

If you are concerned about the vaginal discharge, please schedule an appointment with a gynecologist. Normally, vaginal discharge should be white or clear. It may appear yellow when it has dried on your underwear. Brown discharge is simply old blood remaining at the end of your period.

Most women with a 28 to 30 day menstrual cycle ovulate between day 11 and day 21. You could always start tracking your ovulation.

Hello an0n,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for coming to us with your question.

There was no risk for pregnancy. The fourth day of your period was also day 4 of your new menstrual cycle.

Ovulation, which is when an ovary releases a mature egg, happens around day 11 to day 21.

No pregnancy because no released egg to be fertilized.
