Difficult: The endometrium(lining of the womb) is very minimal from estrogen stimlation only(no progesterone) and it would be very difficult for an egg to have left the ovary during such a time in the menstrual cycle as well as implant. However, in the field of fertility, nothing is impossible.

No: If it was truly your period then no an egg is not mature or large enough then and the uterus is not prepared for a pregnancy to implant.

Depends: Ovulation usually occurrs within 2 weeks after your period starts. An egg is released from the ovary and may or may not find its way into the fallopian tube. It usually does not implant into the uterus unless it becomes fertilized, even then, it's not a guarantee.
