How likely is it for you to get pregnant the day after you finished your menstrual cycle?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

We can't tell you the odds in terms of percentages but it's less likely than, say, having sex on day 12/13/14 which is well the average woman ovulates.

But sperm can live in a woman's body for 5 days or more and if you ovulate early (say, day 11) then pregnancy can happen.

Depends what age you are. Around age 40, my doctor told, ovulation can start to happen the day after your period, as peri-menopausal hormones start playing havoc with your fertility cycle.
