  • As far as I know you can't get pregnant while on your period. Most people is right before or right after. They do have test for you to take to determine when you are ovulating. I never used them but I guess they work. Wish you luck

  • It is possible depending on how long your cycle is, considering the fact that some sperm can stay alive in your tubes for up to 7 days (though that's rare). The shorter your cycle, the more likely it is to get pregnant on your period, but it's much less likely than if you have sex around 1 1/2-2 weeks after your period.
