Say you had sex 7 hours before your period came and you had an average cycle of 35-40 days, how likely is it to get pregnant At that time? It what if you had sex during your period and your period lasts a week and your average cycle is again, 35-40 days ? Many thanks

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Since you have very long cycles, your risk is very low but we can't give you percentages or anything like that. There is no true "safe" time because the body works in mysterious ways but right before, during and directly after (if you have normal or long cycles) would be considered the safest times.
