  • Yes you can get pregnant even on your period, ovulation isn't always precise and sperm can live in the body for up to 5 days.

  • Ovulation is usually 14 days after the start of your period. If your period was for around 14 days and you ovulated while still bleeding then you could get pregnant. If you had wierd cycles you might ovulate early.

    Stuff happens. There are so many women in the world all kinds of things happen. Women that have twins with two different fathers. You can get pregnant and be a virgin if the sperm are really good swimmers.

  • It depends on when you ovulate. Ovulation occurs 11-16 days before the first day of your period, and you're fertile for up to 5-6 days before that. So if you have a short cycle and/or a long period, it might be possible to get pregnant on your period. Specific example: if you have a 21-day cycle, ovulate on day 7, your period lasts 4 days, you could potentially get pregnant on your period.

    But most women's cycles aren't that short, and the most fertile time is within 2-3 days before ovulation, 5-6 days before is possible but not very likely.

    So short answer: It's possible but not likely for most women.
