You can definitely get pregnant on your period. For real. If you don’t want to get pregnant (or risk it), your best bet is to immediately go to the pharmacy and ask for Plan B.

If you aren’t ready, maybe you should go to the pharmacist and get Plan B?  It isn’t the abortion pill like people say, just like regular BC pills.  I can’t comment on if it’s possible since I think it’s possible almost any time in your cycle.

I completely agree with @crayfish:

Not sure if you have Planned Parenthood in your area, but they also provide free Plan B for these types of situations.

You CAN get pregnant when you are on your period. Like other’s said take plan b but if you want to risk it don’t take plan B and just wait it out and see!

Have you been in the care of a provider for your irregular periods?  If not, you might want to make an appointment Monday and see if you can’t get a handle on things and find a form of birth control that will work for your life.  I’m wishing you good luck.

Technically, you can get pregnant on your period.  Actually since your periods are irregular, I wouldn’t take a chance.  Also, 4 periods a year is not good (unless you’re on BC which you said you aren’t).  Not trying to alarm you, but my sister had very irregular and few periods and she has PCOS.  The other ladies suggested something you can do.

I don’t mean to sound rude, but if you aren’t really ready financially you shouldn’t be having unprotected sex.  You said you had to take plan B a few months ago, so obviously this wasn’t a one time deal.  I would recommend you go get a Plan B again (if you really aren’t ready like you said) and then get to your gyno ASAP to start birth control.

@marissabreanna: If you’ve already used Plan B once before, and know your options, I guess i’m confused as to why you are asking us for advice?

If your cycles are THAT irregular, the chances that you’re ovulating right now (or in the next few days, making you fertile) are probably pretty slim. Have you spoken with your doctor about the problem? Heavy amounts of stress can definitely delay ovulation, and therefore your period, but a two-week period that comes every few months is a trip-to-the-gyno-worthy one, IMO. Especially if you plan on having children in the future, you may want to get some medical advice as to what you may need to have healthier/more regular cycles.

@marissabreanna:  If you don’t have medical insurance (I don’t know your situation), you could always try planned parenthood to get BC and to have your periods checked out by a physician.
