Is it possible for a female to become pregnant 9

Patient

Q: Is it possible for a female to become pregnant 9 days before her period?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Considering the cycles are regular, and it is a 28-30 day cycle, the chances of getting pregnant around the 19th or 20th day of the cycle is extremely low, since the ovulation occurs around the 12th-14th day.

But this can never be predicted and if there is a possibility, kindly take the pregnancy test to rule it out.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards.
