Can you get pregnant on your period?

I have a cycle that is an average of 24 days. My period started on January 5th 2013 and had sex later that day. My period ended January 9th 2013. Now I'm expecting my period on February 2 or 3rd 2013 but it hasn't came yet. I know my period comes on a weekend usually. Could I be pregnant for having unprotected sex the first day I got my period?

    No - it's biologically impossible to get pregnant during menstruating.

    Yes - you can get pregnant as a result of sex during menstruation.

    During menstruation there is no egg present for sperm to fertilise and the uterus lining is shedding so a fertilised egg wouldn't be able to implant, however it is possible to be fertile during your period if you ovulate early in your cycle and there is fertile quality cervical mucus present which can keep sperm alive in your vagina for up to 7 days, by which time you may have ovulated.

    During a 24 day cycle you'd ovulate roughly on day 10 of your cycle, that would mean potentially you'd be fertile from day 3 of your cycle - also remember that you cannot judge your current cycle by past cycles, your average cycle may be 24 days but this cycle may have just been 20 days, and thus when you had sex you were probably fertile...so pregnancy would be a possibility.

    It's really important that if you're going to have sex you learn how conception occurs, also if you don't want to fall pregnant it's important you use birth control methods and emergency contraception when it's needed. Your period may just be late, but if worried get a pregnancy test.

    “yes”. There is a high possibility that a woman will get pregnant during her period through unprotected sex. Although the chances are minimal, it still depends on your ovulation period and the day you had sex with your partner. By just knowing the fact that sperm can stay in a woman’s body for about 5 days, you can predict when will be the best time to have sex if you want to get pregnant.

    When you can't get pregnant, and things look good from the outside, it can be extremely frustrating. Anyway this is a great method to get pregnant: https://tr.im/pregnancymiracle1

    The first thing to consider is how long have you been trying. About 80% of couples will get pregnant after six months of trying, and about 90% will be pregnant after 12 months of trying to get pregnant

    By all things technical you can only get pregnant during the 3 days of ovulation right in the middle of your cycle, and since sperm only live for 24 hours inside the uterus it would not be possible, but keep in mind that this is what I heard, if I was a woman I would ask a doctor.
