How to Get Pregnant


Can you get pregnant while having your period? Yes you can. There are some cases, especially when women are already on their 4-5th day of their period.

Why does this happen? This is because sperms can stay in the reproductive tract of the woman as long as 7 days. When you are having your period, there is a change in the pH and your vaginal environment. The ph becomes less acidic, making it favorable for sperms to survive. So the sperms stay in the cervix and the uterus and have the opportunity to meet the egg later on during ovulation, and this leads to fertilization then pregnancy.

How can you get pregnant during your period easily? Read on.

Is it menstruation or breakthrough bleeding?

One thing that you have to ask yourself is this: is it natural menstruation? Or is it bleeding which occurs when you end your set of oral contraceptive pills--- the one we term as breakthrough bleeding.

If you are taking pills, then do not expect yourself to get pregnant easily. It will take about 2-3 months to resume your reproductive activity after you have stopped your pills.

Of course if you want to get pregnant, stop taking the pills now. It would take a long time for your body to reestablish its hormonal balance, so do not waste any more time. If you want to get pregnant, stop now.
