Q: Can I get pregnant during my period?

A: This question does not have a clear-cut answer. Fertilization and implantation are unlikely to happen during your period, but what you probably want to know is: can I get pregnant if I make love during my period? The answer to that question is yes, you can get pregnant from making love during your period. The reason is that sperm can survive up to five days and thus fertilization can happen after your period ends. A woman can get pregnant from intercourse during her period if she has sex and ovulation happens within 5-6 days afterwards.
