It is possible to become pregnant before your period starts because not every woman’s cycle runs identically to the next woman’s. Some women have a 28 day cycle where they ovulate 14 days after their period ends, but other women have cycles that are much longer than this.

For best results, you should keep track of your ovulation cycle in order to determine when you are ovulating. This way you will know the best time to have intercourse in order to increase your chances of becoming pregnant faster.

This will help you to avoid becoming pregnant and can also help you to avoid contracting STDs as well.

It is best to avoid using the schedule of your cycle if you are looking to avoid becoming pregnant because they can be rather unpredictable. Since sperm can live in the body for days, it is also possible to become pregnant even if you did not have intercourse around the time that you were scheduled to ovulate. For this reason, protecting yourself is very important.
