      One can, but it’s not so likely. I found a source that said: ” Most women have normal 28- to 32-day cycles, and if someone with this cycle has an average two- to eight-day period, she will not get pregnant during her period. An egg that is released during ovulation but remains unfertilized “comes out with all of the menstrual blood,” Dr. Hakakha explains. You can get pregnant while on your period, but the chances are very slim”

      The possibility is quite low. If one has a regular menstrual flow, Ovulation period defines the fertile time one can conceive. This falls 12 days after the first day of your flow and lasts for a week.
