Can you get pregnant if you’re on your period?


Can you get pregnant if
you’re on your period? – Ye– – No? Yes.
– Yes? No? Uh…
– Okay. – Yes, yes. No, wait. – Typical reaction.
(laughing) Okay, but yeah. Even if there’s blood present, a pregnancy can still happen if there is a uterus and sperm involved. Because sperm can live inside the uterus typically anywhere from
around five to seven days. – Whoa.
– That long? – Yeah, uh huh. – Okay.
– That’s a long time. – Yeah, I know. That’s why emergency contraception
lasts up to five days. – Yeah, okay. – It waits in a little place
called the seminal pool, it even has its own spot. – Okay, yeah. – So, let’s say ovulation happens, right? The ovary releases the egg, sperm is still waiting there. What can happen? – You get pregnant.
– Pregnancy. – Right, so that’s how a pregnancy can possibly be caused during
sex on someone’s period. – Oh. – Wow.
