I'm so curious to know if I can get pregnant on my last day of my period? Well, my husband and I had sex last night 02/24/12 and I was having my last spots earlier in the day and we had unprotected sex because we think nothing could happens but, I've been doing some researches and it says there's a chance. So, my ovulation is supposed to starts on 03/01/12, and it says the sperm can live up to 4 days??? Please someone advice me if I should take a PB or not?

Hi mswood,

It isn't very common to get pregnant on the last day of your period, however, it is possible. 

It's entirely up to you whether you think you should take an emergency contraceptive. 

Most pregnancies occur at the time of ovulation, which if you are on a 29 day cycle, would be around days 12-15. 

All the best,
