I get my period EVERY month it usually lasts around 5-6 days and comes every 31 days 30 29 days but this time came 28 days. Is this a regular period or irregular? Also would it be possible to get pregnant during your period? I had sex maybe 3 or 4 times on my period this month. and today is supposably my last day on my period (day 6) I'm hardly bleeding at all but I was just wondering the chance of it. Thanks

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your questions.

The menstrual cycle, which is counted from the first day of one period to the first day of the next, isn't the same for every woman. Menstrual flow might occur every 21 to 35 days and last two to seven days. The length of the period varies. Most periods last from 3 to 5 days. But, anywhere from 2 to 7 days is normal.

Anonymous, continue to keep track of your menstrual cycle and see if an early period start time or irregular start time becomes a pattern.

Having sex during your period will more than likely not result in getting pregnant. More than likely, your ovulation is several days away decreasing any chances of conceiving during this time.

However, there are exceptions. The above applies to women who have typical 28 to 30 day or longer cycles. If you happen to be one of the individuals who has a shorter cycle there is a chance you could get pregnant while having sex during your period.

If your menstrual cycle every 21 to 24 days, this means you are ovulating earlier in the cycle. Sperm can live inside you for 2, 3 and up to 5 days. You could have sex towards the end of your bleeding and then actually conceive 4 or 5 days later with your early ovulation.

I hope that I have answered your questions.
