If you are on a 26 Day cycle and had a period on April 21 and finished on April 24 , can I get pregnant for having sex on 25th and 26th.

Dear Anon

Thanks for your post! You can get pregnant over quite a span of your cycle, because ovulation can differ person to person, and even month to month. There is no 100% safe time although some times are obviously far "safer" than others.

Looking at your dates, your were about 5 days into your cycle. Since sperm can live up to 5 days in the body and ovulation can start by as little as day 9 or 10 into your cycle, then the risk is there. However, your timeline would be considered safer than midcycle (days 10-20).

I hope this helps and thanks for writing!
