What is the risk of becoming pregnant outside the fertile period

    The fertile period is the set of days during which it is easier to get pregnant. Thus, these days can either be used by women who are trying to conceive, to increase their chances, or avoided, by those who do not wish to become pregnant.

    Although it is almost impossible to get pregnant outside the fertile period, there is a minimal chance of this happening, especially if intercourse occurs before ovulation. After ovulation, gestation is much more difficult, since the egg has already been released and the fallopian tubes have passed and cannot be fertilized.

    The days with the highest risk of becoming pregnant in the whole cycle are the 3 days before ovulation, including the day of ovulation, since it is during this period that the mature egg is released from the ovaries and can be fertilized.
