Have a few questions
Mon, 12-26-2011 - 2:32pm

First question, I bought the First Response Fertility test, it says on the directions to take it on cycle day 3, well I got my period on Dec 23rd so Christmas morning would have been cycle day 3 but with my 4 year old daughter all excited about opening up her gifts I totally forgot and took the test today on cycle day 4.

I don't know about the test, sorry.

As for the other question, it's possible but very very unlikely. If you had sex at the end of your period, it could happen. Sperm can live a few days in a woman's body. If you ovulated very early in the month (like the day after your period) then sperm from period sex could still be alive. But I've never heard of it happening in real life. Most woman ovulate later than that. Plus, during your period, your body is expelling things. It's not the best environment for sperm to reach an egg when everything else is
