Can You Get Pregnant on Day 11 of the Menstruation Cycle?

The answer is yes, and there are several explanations. Some women have menstrual cycles lasting less than 28 days. If a woman's cycle lasts 22 days, and she ovulates at mid-cycle, a pregnancy is possible on day 11. Wed MD explains that menstrual-cycle length can vary from month to month.

In another case, ovulation can occur earlier during a shorter cycle. A woman can ovulate on day 11 or earlier as opposed to day 14, or which ever day marks the midpoint of the woman's typical cycle.

A woman can become pregnant days after having sex, because sperm can live for up to 5 days following sexual intercourse. If a woman had sex as early as day 6 of her cycle, and she ovulates on day 11, she can become pregnant as a result.
