Suprise i got pregnant!
« on: October 12, 2018, 02:46:21 PM »
Hi all, first time to be at this forum. Just like to share with you ladies my case. I had my last period on my bday 17 Aug and ony lasted 3 days. I had unprotected sex with my husband 25 Aug. We always follow calendar method we assumed still safe. September came and I missed my period. Now October still dont have it. I did hpt and was positive. Went to see gynea to confirm last Wednesday and then Yeah I am 8 weeks 4days preggy!!!
How did it happen? We thought 3 to 5 days after period was safe. Or we are thought wrong all along

Sperm can live up to 5 days and if your cycles are on a shorter side then those would of been your most fertile days!

It’s because it’s not an effective method. (Of all of the ways it’s the LEAST effective)

Here are some statistics
“FAMs (fertility awareness methods) are about 76-88% effective: that means 12-24 out of 100 couples who use FAMs will get pregnant each year”

So statistically you were GOING to get pregnant it was just a matter of time.
