Falling pregnant in first or last days
Can one fall pregnant in the first 10 days or the last days before you period should start again (more or less days 20 to 28). If one can, then I can say with certainty that I have been trying to fall pregnant for 14 months now (just over a year). Beginning of last year we were careful, in the sense that we did not have sex during time that ovulation should take place, but since September last year, we are really really trying all times of the months. I have booked an appointment with the gynae for middle March to take "next steps". But I hope that that appointment will be a "first 6 weeks" appointment and not "can't conceive" appointment. I will know by middle/end of next week - How do one get through this "waiting for next period" - weeks. The waiting is killing me, and I really feel lucky this month. Hold thumbs lady's!!!

Ovulation sometimes occurs at unexpected times, so it is possible to fall pregnant after Day 20.
Good luck with your pregnancy plans.
