Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

The highest risk of pregnancy 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.
