Her periods are irregular, takes more than 1 month per period. We had sex twice during the 4th day of her period, the flow already kind of settled down a bit. we used condoms and I pulled out right before ejaculating. Oh and btw her cervix was soft. is that normal? thank you very much!

We had sex during my fourth day of period and we didn't use any condom or protection at all, will that make me pregnant?

She will need to check with her doctor,  usually the cervix closes and gets harder after ovulation.

Hi Brandon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  If you used condoms and she was on her period it's unlikely she will be pregnant.  Ovulation is the time when a woman can get pregnant and it's usually around the 11-21 day from the beginning of a cycle.  She should see a doctor about her irregular periods.

Thank you very much. Uhm regarding the soft cervix, is it supposed to be soft during her period?
