Not an absolute yes, but not a no either.  I know 1 person to get preg on her period.  There are no absolutes other than doubling up on preventitive precautions.

A lot of people think that if a girl has sex during her period, she can't get pregnant. But it is possible for a girl to get pregnant while she is bleeding. This can happen for a couple of reasons:

  • Not all vaginal bleeding is the result of a menstrual period. Sometimes a girl will have a small amount of vaginal bleeding at the time of ovulation — the time when she is most fertile. During ovulation, an egg is released from one of the ovaries and travels down a fallopian tube to the uterus. It's common for girls who are ovulating to have some vaginal bleeding that can be mistaken for a period.
  • Sometimes ovulation can occur before the bleeding from a girl's period has stopped, or it may occur within a few days after her period is over. Sperm can fertilize an egg for several days after ejaculation. So in both cases, having sex before the period is finished can result in pregnancy.

I actually checked on this one for myself a long time ago 'cause I was sick of not knowing...and, YES....you can. Just look at it like you can get pregnant any day of the week, any time of day. That will keep you safe if you'r not looking to get pregnant any time soon. I figure...the only time your not gonna get pregnant is if your not having sex, using birth contrl, or your already pregnant.
