What Is the Chance of Pregnancy?

If you have in mind the chance of pregnancy you should know that during each month your chances of getting pregnant depend on different factors such as weight, age and the period of time for which you were actively trying to get pregnant.

Chance of Pregnancy

Statistics and chances of a pregnancy

Statistically speaking, it usually takes four months for a woman to get pregnant. There are different kinds of statistical data regarding the chances that couples have if they try for baby each month. You should know that you have 15%-20% chances in each menstrual cycle to get pregnant.

These chances to get pregnant apply only in case you get everything right, if you don’t have any medical conditions that make pregnancy more difficult and if your partner has a high sperm count. About 40% of the couples who try TTC will get pregnant within the first three months.

The chances of getting pregnant increase by 30% if we consider the couples getting pregnant in the first 6 months. 85% of the couples get pregnant within a year of starting TTC. However you have to know that the chances for you to conceive after the age of 30 decrease each cycle.

Irregular cycles

If you happen to have irregular menstrual cycles, the pregnancy chance decreases further. It takes longer to get pregnant because you can’t know for sure when you ovulate. If you were trying for 6-9 months without any success, you might want to talk to your health care provider about the options that you have.


The good news is that even if you have small chances of fertilization, you could use infertility treatments to increase your chances. Some of the treatments are quite simple, while the others need modern technology. Your doctor should be able to tell you how to get started.

Short penetration

When it comes to the chances of becoming pregnant, you should know that you have some chances even if penetration happens only for a very short period of time. Naturally the chances are very low, but there is still a chance. There is always the possibility if the penis gets in contact with the genital area.

Dry or faux sex

Just as in the previous case, there is the possibility of getting pregnant if the penis gets in contact with the genital area of the woman.    This is because there is the possibility that some seminal fluid leaks into the vagina and it can contain sperms that can fertilize the mature egg.


If you are thinking about the possibility of pregnancy because of pre-ejaculation you should know that some of the studies show that it is possible to get pregnant because of it, while other show that it isn’t possible. The best thing you could do is to be careful with it if you don’t want to get pregnant.

There are a lot of factors that you have to consider if you are thinking about the pregnancy chances. When it comes to intercourse, you should also think about the STDs.
