ladies, what do you think?

On December the 9th 2007, i had my period and it ended on the 14th of decenber. That same day, my boyfriend tried putting his member into me for not even 30 seconds because we didn't have a condom and i wasn't on the pill. On january 9th 2008 i got my period and that ended on the 13th. It was right ontime. It is now the 20th, and there has been no sexual contact with my boyfriend. For a few days now, i've been feeling lower back pain. Is it possible that i could be pregnant? or highly impossible.

it always amazes me the amount of women who don't understand a menstrual cycle.

It is highly unlikley you're pregnant. Your lower back pain is probably cramping- the menstrual kind.

On an "ideal" cycle, you ovulate around day 14- but with can vary from woman to woman. The egg is dead within 48hrs. Sperm usually can survive for 4 days at most in a woman.

So besides the fact that you had a period already, (which would tend to imply there's no uterine lining for a child to be surviving in) you had sex on day 5 of your cycle. IF you ovulated on day 9, which is absurdly early, and his sperm lived 4 days, which is pretty unlikely, you *Might* have a chance of being pregnant.

But it's very much one of those, all the planets would have had to be in alignement for you to get preggo, because everything points to No.

I can't take hormonal bc, and I hate condoms, so I know my schedule inside and out, and use that to prevent pregnancy the same way many women use it to get prego. Either I'm unfertile, or it's worked for 8 years without a problem. (And nothing suggests fertility problems). You can also if you want take Myrrh around the time you ovulate as it's supposed to hinder an egg attaching to the uterine wall. (Though to many strict anti-abortionists, the fact that you are hindering a fertilised eggs chance to survive, this is still murder.)

What do I think?

I think you read too many trashy romances if you're using words like "member".

I don't think you are pregnant, but do a test if you're curious. Many, many women bleed when pregnant, however, it isn't usually exactly like a normal period.

It could be cramping from ovulation...

If your last period was 1/9/08 then this is day 12 - you could just have some cramping from ovulation itself. I don't think you're pregnant.

I'm the 6:37 who obviously wasn't paying enough attention. Evertyhing I said about cycle is right, but 8:37 has a fanstastic point. Many women do cramp a little when they ovulate. I usually do. It's a great indicator of when you're fertile.

But no, you're probably not prego.

Hey hon I would go ahead and get a pregnancy test, get the one that has 2 in a box-- this way you can take one now and take another one if your period's due again and it actually doesn't come. It doesn't sound to me like you're pregnant from what you've shared!
The other thing I wanted to say is that lower back pain is not generally the biggest symptom of pregnancy. Super bad breast tenderness, unusual uterine cramping (like menstrual cramps on steroids), and sometimes, nausea, are better indicators. Good thing you're aware of your cycle and your body, and I'm sure you don't need me to say, get on some kind of birth control so you guys don't have to go through this stress again! It's really the worst!
Good luck, let us know! :)

You had your period so why would you think you are pregnant? Especially since there's been no sexual contact since your period ended. No you are not pregnant. The back pain is probably from some mild muscle strain or just some sort of twist or a more likely thought, you are ovulating, which sometimes can manifest as back pain. You need to have sex to get pregnant.

To the 6:37 poster, not every woman ovulates smack in the middle of her cycle. Thats a myth and a stupid standard most doc go by. If you are really in tune with your body you can feel when you ovulate. I sometimes ovulate in the middle of my cycle but there are lots of months that I ovulate the week after my period. In fact I am pregnant with my 2nd child and I know the exact 3 day period I got pregnant and it was 6 days after my period. Of course the doc didn't believe me until they realized I was 3 weeks further along in my pregnancy then they thought. So, so much for the middle of the cycle ovulating theory.

Why on earth are there people telling her to get a pregnancy test? She specifically said she hasn't had sex since her last period and unless its the 2nd coming would be impossible for her to be pregnant. More likely you are feeling yourself ovulate. I always know exactly when I ovulate cause I can feel in my back and sometimes serve cramping. I can even feel when the egg releases, crazy I know but true, sometimes its only one side but then there are months that I can feel it on both. And to the 6:37 poster not everyone ovulates in the middle of their cycle. I know for a fact that I don't.
