  • Can you get pregnant during your period?

    Ok so me and my bf didnt have intercourse but he did rubbed at my entrance and my friend told me that I could get pregnant from his pre-cum. So on the day when my period is supposed to be due, it came out lighter than usual. I know if I have my period because I will have backache and have mild cramping and it will be heavy. Is this what you call "spotting"? Or am I having a early miscarriage? All I want to know is that if I'm pregnant or not? Also I haven't tested yet, I heared that it's best to wait till I'm done bleeding.

  • How long ago did you have sex? I would doubt you are pregnant if he didn't penetrate you.

    • There is about a 2% chance that you will get pregnant. I had an issue similar to that...and I didn't. We went crazy doing research and it said 2% but very unlikely.

      • You can get pregnant from pre-cum, and you can get pregnant on your period. But the chances are pretty slim.

        • The fact that this started happening the day your period was going to start anyway suggests, to me, that it's simply a lighter period. Hormones fluctuate everyday and even after having a monthly period for years, random things can still occur. I would say that you're not pregnant. Yes, you can get pregnant from pre-cum, and yes you can get pregnant while on your period. As AshleyBrook and Katie35801 said above, the chances are very slim for both occurring (although I don't know the exact percentage). I would try not to worry about it, as stress also can have an effect on your menstrual cycle. If you're really concerned though, take a pregnancy test in a couple weeks. I'm sure you'll be fine.
