Will I Ovulate If I was Sexually Active?

Patient: My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant. My question is he and I had intercourse this month while I was ovulating will I still get my period this month or no?

 

 

Doctor: In a normal healthy female, you will have menses (uterine bleeding) any time conception and implantation of a fertilized egg does not occur.  The menstrual cycle is not effected by sexual intercourse, only by conceptions and implantation.
