Can I get Pregnant with My Period?
Every women has a cycle every month. The actual time that it takes a woman to go through that cycle will vary from one woman to the next. The average cycle will be about 28 days, but it is possible for it to be much longer or much shorter.
The cycle will revolve around the woman’s ovulation and period. Every month, the body will prepare to become pregnant by thickening the lining of the uterine wall. If the egg is fertilized, it will then attach itself to this lining.
When the egg is released, it will travel through the fallopian tubes and into the uterus. Here is it will stay for around 72 hours waiting to become fertilized. If it does not become fertilized, the egg will die and the woman’s period will begin.
Typically, since the period happens immediately following ovulation, it isn’t likely that you will be able to become pregnant while you are on your period. However, since women’s cycles run differently, there may still be a chance. If your cycle begins again closely after your period and you have had intercourse near the end of your period, it is possible that sperm will still be present when the egg is released again.

Be careful when and how you use it
I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.
Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment
Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
