Hi, Anon.

Thanks for your post.

The most common way is through unprotected vaginal intercourse, during which a man ejaculates sperm into the vagina. The sperm can then travel up through the cervix, into the uterus and if an egg is present, the sperm may fertilize it. It is also possible, but far less likely, for women to become pregnant through any kind of sex play in which semen, or ejaculate, comes in contact with the vulva. The sperm can travel through the moisture on the vulva into the vagina.

The best chance of becoming pregnant is during the second and third weeks of the menstrual cycle. While a normal cycle is considered anywhere between 21 and 35 days, the average is about 28 days. Ovulation (the time when a woman is fertile) occurs mid-month, this averages to day 14 every month give or take several days before and after. If a woman has unprotected sex around this time, she may get pregnant. A woman who has unprotected sex has about a 20% chance of pregnancy every month.

Using protection and birth control is still the best way to avoid unwanted pregnancy. There is always some risk when you have unprotected sex.
