Can I get pregnant immediately after my period?
Yes, although it’s not very likely. If you have sex without using contraception, you can conceive (get pregnant) at any time during your menstrual cycle, even during or just after your period.
Is it possible to ovulate early?
Only a small percentage of women ovulate exactly on cycle day 14; most women actually reach their fertile window earlier or later. Early ovulation can be due to aging, lifestyle factors, BMI, or nothing at all. Early ovulation may make it more difficult to get pregnant, depending on why early ovulation occurred.
How many days after period can you not get pregnant?
There are phases during the entire menstrual cycle when you are most likely to conceive and most unlikely to conceive. If you are trying to avoid getting pregnant, you have a minimal chance of getting pregnant if you have sex within the initial seven days after periods, when the eggs are not released from the ovaries.

If your average menstrual cycle is 35 days ovulation happens around day 21 and your most fertile days are days 19,20 and 21.

During this week after your period ends, the lining of your uterus starts getting thick and spongy again — which would either support a pregnancy, or get released through your vagina at the beginning of your next cycle (AKA your period).
How can you tell if your fertile at home?
Most at-home FSH tests are very similar to pregnancy tests administered at home. For easy testing, use a small cup to collect urine from the first urination of the day. Then dip the testing stick into the urine sample and place on a flat surface while the test results register.
