No but: You can have bleeding during pregnancy. It is not your period, but rather, bleeding related to the pregnancy. While this is of low concern in most cases, any bleeding during pregnancy should be checked with your OB provider.
Dr. Adam Levy
Obstetrics and Gynecology 37 years experience
No: Bleeding during pregnancy is commonly mistaken for a period. But when it happens it is called threatened miscarrage. A simple preg test clears this question up quickly.

No: If your periods are regular, monthly, then not usually. You are not usually ovulating right after the period ends, so not the right timing for conception to occur. Irregular periods make it difficult or impossible to know when ovulation is occurring.

Ovulation: Yes. Of course. You are most fertile for the five days prior to ovulation through the day you ovulate. What you should know is when you ovulate in your cycle and the other simple basics about the menstrual cycle.

Kinda sorta: It's a matter of semantics. No, you won't have a normal, regular menstrual bleed. But yes, you can bleed/spot while pregnant. Check out http://www.womens-health.co.uk/menstruation-during-pregnancy.html and report your concerns to whoever is providing your prenatal care, Family Doc or OB.
