A 34-year-old female asked:

Can u get pregnant when ur on your periods?

Unreliable : Women can get pregnant when they are bleeding especially when the bleeding is not their normal period. Not all vaginal bleeding means they are on their menstrual cycle. Ovulation occurs 14 days before the cycle starts and this is the optimal time to get pregnant. When a true menstrual cycle comes it means fertilization did not occur. Having sex during that time would be low risk for pregnancy.

Yes: It is not normal to not have periods. If you are taking certain birth control pills, then some can keep you from having periods, but if not, it is not normal to miss periods. This usually means you are not ovulating normally and therefore it is unlikely to get pregnant but yes it can happen. You should see your gynecologist about the lack of periods.

Unlikely !: Pregnancy can still happen but odds are small since you've used most if not all of your fertilizable eggs by now. Ask your doctor to do an fsh blood test. Testing in the menopausal range should bring peace of mind.
