I had sex on the 7th day of my cycle. We used condoms and none of them broke or slipped. I noticed cervical mucus on the 10th day of my period which would indicate my ovulation period; this is the earliest I've noticed it. Even though the condoms worked okay, considering the day of my ovulation, do I still have a chance of getting pregnant?

Hi there


Just wondering if you are hoping to get pregnant or are you hoping not to get pregnant?  Did you use any other form of protection such as spermacide or birth control pills?


Nothing is foolproof but it is probably unlikely that you will get pregnant if you used the condom properly.  If you had not used a condom then we would be having a different conversation entirely.


I hope things work out the way you want them to.  Thank you for your question.

I really appreciate your input. About your question, I am not trying to get pregnant. Condom is the only contraceptive I used, but I also practice the Natural Planning Method, so I only have sex during the first seven days of my cycle (with condom), wait the following twelve (no sex) and the last part of the cycle I still use a condom. In a sense I think I am using two types of contraceptives.


The condoms were used properly. The only reason why I wondered about this is because of the day "I think" I ovulated. Besides the 10th day, I also noticed cervical mucus on the 11th and 12th day of my cycle, so I really don't know exactly when was my ovulation day. However, this time was the earliest I've ever noticed it.


Again, thank you so much for your input. I do appreciate it.
