The probability of getting pregnant after your period

All girls and women who at least know a little about physiology, you know that the menstrual cycle is divided into three phases: follicular, ovulatory and luteal. Ovulatory phase, during which conception occurs, lasts about two days, and the duration of the first and third phase are approximately equal.

With each phase changes the endometrium from the uterus and ovaries. The first phase is characterized by the fact that during this period, the dominant follicle grows, it appears the egg is ready for fertilization. In the third phase in the female organism creates favorable conditions for the beginning and subsequent development of pregnancy in case of fertilization. Thus, we can conclude that pregnancy can not occur in the first days after menstruation.
But do not relax, so as with any rule there are exceptions.

The risk of pregnancy

However, it is impossible to give a categorical answer to the question, is it possible to get pregnant the day after menstruation, because in some cases, conception occurs even in the seemingly impossible time. And this is proven by the great number of women who use contraception calendar method.

For example, pregnancy can occur in women with a short menstrual cycle, a period which lasts less than 25 days, and monthly at it for weeks or more. In this case, ovulation occurs usually on the third day after the end of the month.
In this case, even poor selection can not prevent the ingress of sperm into the uterus, where the egg is ready for fertilization.

Another reason for the sudden pregnancy is the so-called "vitality" of the male sperm. Some sperms can live in female tract for several days, sometimes even a week. Itself comes to a conclusion that even if the normal menstrual cycle can occur fertilization of an egg. But such cases are very rare.

But, despite the unreliability of the calendar method, many women continue to use it, because some medically contraindicated many of the modern methods of contraception.

And should not neglect their health, and if you don't need a baby, you should care about more reliable method of contraception.
