as far as i know

the ovulation period occurs at different times for most women (some 14 days,some 12 days) of their menstrual cycle.when ovulation occurs,the egg moves from fallopian tube to the womb.now that the egg is easily accessible,id assume it easier to fall pregnant at this time.after ones period,the egg is still in the ovary and until you reach ovulation period,the risk will increase.hope i am right:)

even if sex occured before or after periods,i think to prevent this kind of stress,a condom should always be used.falling pregnant can happen anytime but like i said,chances are higher at ovulation period.
hope this helps

It depends

From your other post it sounds like her cycle is a bit all over the place so it's impossible to say when she could get pregnant or not. You mentioned she took the pill once. You have to take that every day in order for it to be effective. Start using condoms, pronto!

The pill doesn't work that way! You have to take it everyday at the same time! And even then, you should be practicing safe sex. You can't just take the pill after you have sex and expect that to prevent a pregnancy because you didn't want to use a condom!

There is a morning after pill that is available in drugstores, but it's not one pill... I think it's two. But it should absolutely NOT be used as a primary form of contraception!

I'm going to repeat MissChickie's comment... Start using condoms!!!!!

Patricia is right

You two are messing with fire if that is your birth control method.

Sexual Health Resources!!!!!!! very informative :)

Raymond, at this point I would highly suggest that she goes to see her doctor or a sex clinic. It would also be a good idea if you go with her, so you can both be educated about safe sex practice and birth control methods.

The pill that patricia is talking about is plan B (aka morning after pill). It is only meant to be used as a LAST RESORT (i.e. you did not use any protection). It's not meant to be used every time you have sex. If you live in Canada, you can get it over the counter at any pharmacist. The pharmacist will probably take her in a separate room and ask her a few questions to determine whether or not it will be effective at that time.

For more information, check out:

http://www.shareyouroops.ca/ <-- This is a great site, where people (anonymously) share their stories of why they had to use plan B. Remember, it is NOT meant to be used everytime you have an "oops!" moment!

If you live in Canada, there are plently of sexual health resources. A great site that I like to go to and often refer my peers to is sexualityandu.ca. There is also a section where you can find sex clinics in your area:


I know in the United States they have Planned Parenthood - also a great resource. Here is their link here:


Remember: Sex clinics are a place where you can get condoms for FREE. If you are in college/university, you can also find free condoms at the on-campus doctor/nurses office or through health education resource offices.

I hope that helps... :)

Talk to a Doctor

Seriously if you don't know what's going on this is probably a solid sign that you aren't ready for sex yet. You should be worry about pregnancy BEFORE you have sex, not AFTER.

Talk to a doctor or nurse or someone like that about the correct usage of taking the pill. No offense to the people on Chickadvisor, but in general, you don't know how reliable the information is on forums so your best bet is to go talk to a doctor.

I don't think this is something you want to mess around with.
