Dear customer,

Thank you for contacting JustAnswer.

What is your question regarding this? How old are you?

My question is, although I had unprotected sex a day before my period was due and I still came on my period would I still be able to get pregnant. I am 26 years old

Dear customer,

Thank you for your question.

The day before the period was due is considered to be a safe day to have even unprotected sex since you will ovulate only after 14 days and the sperm cannot survive for more than 5 days. So, it is not possible for this to cause pregnancy. Also, you had a period and this rules out pregnancy. So, if you have regular cycles you can 100% safely relax and there is no way for you to get pregnant because of this incident of unprotected sex.

Thank you!

Does this make sense to you? Please reply.
