  • i thought u have to be ovulating to get pregnant, so if u r on ur period then ur probably not ovulating

  • It's possible — but highly unlikely. You'd have to have a very short menstrual cycle

  • It's not the most fertile point in your cycle, but it's possible to get pregnant from unprotected sex at any point in your cycle.

  • Not very likely, unless you have a very short cycle and/or a very long period. Ovulation happens 11-15 days before your period, and it's possible to conceive in the 5-6 days prior to that, so at most 21 days before your period. If your cycle is, say, 24 days long, and your period lasts 5 days, then it would be possible to get pregnant on the last 2 days of your period. But if you have a "normal" 28-day cycle (or longer), you're not going to get pregnant on your period (unless your period lasts for 7 days, and then maybe on the last day, but still not likely).
