Prepare for a truth bomb here… Yes! You can get pregnant from P in V period sex. But, it’s quite rare. Let me explain. It tends to only be a risk for people with a shorter cycle i.e. around 20 days. Let’s say someone has a menstrual cycle of 20 days and their period lasts the first 5 days of their cycle. Sperm can actually stay alive in the body for up to 7 days after ejaculation so, if they have sex towards the end of their period (i.e. during days 3 – 5), the sperm can live in the body until days 10 – 12. For someone with a short cycle of around 20 days, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to say that they might ovulate (release an egg) around day 10. So, there is a chance that you will ovulate while there is still sperm in the body. Like I said, it’s not very common, a lot of different factors have to line up, but it is still possible.
