Can I get pregnant if…?

Can I get pregnant at any time during my menstrual cycle - even outside of my fertile days?

Yes, you can. Even with the most regular cycle, and obsessive tracking, ovulation is really difficult to pinpoint. Sperm can survive in the female reproductive system for up to five days, so this makes the time that you are fertile much broader than you may think. Anytime that you have unprotected sex, you run the risk of pregnancy.
