Can I get pregnant if I have sex during my period?

It is possible to get pregnant during your period, especially if you have a short menstrual cycle or a long period.

Although menstrual cycles can vary in length, most women ovulate or release an egg at midcycle. Conception occurs when the egg is released, comes in contact with the sperm, and they unite. This usually happens in the fallopian tube, and they travel together to the uterus. This process usually occurs between the 10th and 15th day of a 28-day cycle.

However, some women have shorter cycles or longer periods, which can make it difficult to predict when they're fertile. Also, irregular or breakthrough bleeding at ovulation can make you think you have your period when you're actually ovulating.

It can be a little complicated to track your menstrual cycle, but there are a lot of great mobile apps to help you do this.
