    The chances of getting pregnant during a menstrual period are low however it's not entirely impossible. It's best you know your normal period with the ovulation period which best help in knowing your safe period. Cheers

    So you're saying that the chance is there. I thought that if one has sex during that time, pregnancy cannot occur. Please advice me doctor.

    Hello there once again. The male sperm still thrives for 2-3 days in the female reproductive system though the ideal is that fertilisation and implantation should not occur during the period as there is shedding of the topmost layer of the uterine lining however it is still possible to get pregnant but the chances are very small.

    Thank you for the reassurance doctor. I also want to ask, is it true that contraceptives can make a woman fat?

    Hello! Contraceptives vary in types and mode of actions. For the pill yes weight gain is a side effect noticed by most users. Apart from the pill there's the condom ie male and female, intra uterine device, implant(implanon). It's best you see a health care givers who'll advice which is best for you. You're welcome and here at Kangpe all we care about is your health. Cheers!
