Chances of pregnancy
jeff284 posted:
Hi, I'm looking for some answers on the possibility of pregnancy. I recently had unprotected sex with a woman, three times, while she was on her period and bleeding and I believe I withdrew every time in time, but I cannot remember exactly. I have been unable to find a straight answer and I hope you can help shed some light on my concerns.

Thank you, Jeff

Anytime you have unprotected sex there is a chance of pregnancy. While a woman is less likely to get pregnant after having sex while on her period, there is still a small chance.

If you don't want to be a father, be sure to use a condom each and every time.

Hi there, from day one of her period up to the 9th day of her period with or without blood it is safe for her. Better be safe than sorry.
