    A girl can get pregnant at any time of her cycle. It's most likely at ovulation (half way between two periods) but can happen at any time.

    I'm confused by what you mean by jelly area? :confused:
    Thanks. By jelly area I mean the place the sperm swim up. I figured they couldn't swim up if there was no liquid, so it would be jelly-like?

    Gave you +ve rep

    Oops, had to delete and repost cause I wasn't anon...

    Brilliant. Would this jelly area be next to the ice-cream wall? Behind the syrup muscles?

    Yep, a girl can only get pregnant whilst she is on her period, although obviously you can't get pregnant if you have sex standing up. :rolleyes:

    Sorry, I know this probably is a stupid question, but I've always been confused what the answer is.

    If I'm right, there has to be an egg in the "jelly area" (outside the egg barracks) for the sperm to reach. Right? And I think eggs are only out of the barracks and in the jelly area while a girl is on her period?

    Wow I feel stupid. Thanks.
    Are you serious? Do you not know how reproduction works? A girl has a period because the egg isn't fertilised and therefore doesn't implant in the womb. Just google it.

    What's up with you and eggs and jelly?

    Seriously, just call it the womb or the uterus.

    you can get pregnant at any point in your cycle, like previous poster said it is most likely in the middle of your cycle...pregnancies however can also occur at other points when the egg is not in the uterus - i.e. pregnancies that occur in fallopian tubes

    I took a pregnancy test today and it came out positive, but I've just come on my period. I'm eight days late. What should I do? Does that mean I'm pregnant or not? It's a really painful period, but mine often are!

    If used correctly they are highly effective to prevent pregnancy, figures on internet vary from between 85%-99% depending on where you read it from. However there is always a small risk that pregnancy can occur!

    The chance is very small that you could fall pregant whilst wearing a condom, but there is always that chance!

    If they are used correctly then how on earth could there still be a chance of getting pregnant if they are manufctured properly? This has always had me wondering!

    Edit: for clarity im on about if the condom doesnt break or slip off how there ould still be a chance.
