  • Being on ur period it is highly unliking that u will fall pg. Most woman ovulate around 14 days after ur first day of ur cycle. But sperm can still stay alive and waiting for the egg for up to seven days how ever the egg only stays alive for 24 hours. I would suggest reading up on taking you temps each day and tracking them to understand it all a bit better and to avoid any surprises too :) hope this helps
