Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hi my husband and me had unprocted sex on the 8th day of my menstral cycle . My cycle is regular, its a 31 day cycle. My question is could i haven gotten pregant? ? %-)


Technically, you can get pregnant at any time during your cycle. Unless you are tracking monthly with an ovulation detection kit, there is no way of knowing that you ovulate on the 14th day every month.

Sperm can live in a woman's body for up to 5 days, so if you had sex on the 8th day, there could have still be live sperm in your body at the 13th day. As you know, this is/is nearing a prime fertile stage for most women.

So yes, you can get pregnant having sex on the 8th day. Newer pregnancy tests, such as First Response, can detect the pregnancy hormone up to 5 days before a missed period.

Best of luck!
