Periods


Can you still get pregnant if you have sex during your period?

Dr Dawn:

Yes. If you have a regular cycle it is highly unlikely but it is possible that out of the blue you would have a 2 week cycle which would mean that you were ovulating during a bleed, so you should always assume that it is possible.
