Is it possible to get pregnant a week before your period

Patient: Is it possible to get pregnant a week before your period?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.The chances of getting pregn ant are least when the woman is on her period and a week before it. These are considered to be the safest days, with a minimum pregnancy risk. This is because the ovulation occurs between the second and the third week of periods considering a regular 28-30 day cycle.So the chances of getting pregnant a week before period are minimal.Hope this was helpful,Regards
