Scenario:

Last time intercourse was 2-3 days post AF. No protection used, didn't think it was necessary. So LMP was sometime third week of June. Now experiencing same general sickness as in last pregnancy. One pregnancy test negative down, waiting on next one. Is it possible to get pregnant that soon after AF?

Your help is very much appreciated.

How long between the first day of your period and the 2-3 days post AF?

about 7-8 days. I did some research...my cycle was a 21 day cycle in May-June, so with that my "infertile" pre-ovulation period was non-existent. So, it seems....

It sounds like it could be a definite possibility. It says in TCOYF that it is possible to get pregnant from intercourse during your period (or a few days after) if you have a long period and early ovulation.

with a 21 day cycle, and a 12 day luteal phase, you probably ovulated around cd 9. so assuming you had fertile quality cervical fluid when you had sex on cd8, it seems to me you have a good chance of being pregnant.

good luck!

mostly WAHM, sometimes WOHM to my : two boys.

Wow zoe, you sounded kinda overwhelmed by it, and I'm sure you're excited at the same time. I'm happy for you that you got a + and I wish you the best of luck in your pregnancy.
