Not suppose to.: Period is a sign of failing a pregnancy. Your chances of getting pregnant is not there while you are on your period unless you have a 21 days menstrual cycle.
Dr. Pedro Hernandez

~10 %: There are some umpredicable chances in the life of any woman that the ovulation may happen closer to the menstrual period ( short preovulatory phase) and the fértile cervical mucus is not possible to observe because it is mixed with blood from the menstruacion. Statistically speaking during menstruation " most of the time" fertility is low, but never 100% infertile.

Not likely: Hello Elizabeth, If your period were 5-7 days you would be having sex around day 8 of your cycle. Most ladies with 28 -- 30 day cycles get pregnant around day 14 -15. or 14 days prior to the next menses. If your cycle, however is shorter than 28-30 days then unprotected sex the day after a period becomes more likely to result in a pregnancy.

Very low percentage: But anything is possible. The likelihood is very low as when you have a menstruation the hormones that are required for fetal implantation in the uterus are not there and therefore you shed which causes the bleeding
