What are my chances of getting pregnant during my period?when do i take a test?

I had sex with my bf during day 3 of my period i know there is a possibility i can get pregnant, just wanted to know the chances. When is the best time to take a test? and is there an at home kit that's more accurate then others?

Officially, a woman has a 25% chance of getting pregnant each cycle with unprotected intercourse during her fertile window. A woman is most fertile 10-14 days after the first day of her menstrual cycle (first day of her period is day 1 of a cycle).

You can accurately do home pregnancy tests 2 weeks following unprotected intercourse. Using the cycle I mentioned earlier, if you had intercourse on day 14, HPT would start becoming accurate around day 28. Some HPT are more sensitive than others but they are are reliably accurate.

That being said, it is less likely you will become pregnant if you had intercourse on day 3 of your cycle. It is still possible but less likely because you shouldn't be ovulating for another 7-11 days.

Hope this helps.

I would say what the normal tests say, take one around 3 to 5 days after your first missed period.

Your chances of getting pregnant during your periods are extremely low. You have to be ovulating for you to get pregnant. Ovulation mostly occurs between periods, that is, the 12th to the 16th day. However, this is different for every woman. You can take the test after you miss your next period and most home kits are accurate.

Your chances of getting pregnant during your period are really low especially you are actively bleeding. but not 0 %. thus you can be in 1 of 1000 women who got pregnant like this. Wait till a week after missed period. if you cant wait, try beta hcg test.
