Not possible: Its not possible to get pregnant while you are menstruating, as there is no egg present to fertilize. When a person is pregnant, one can determine the date of conception to a few days based on early ultrasound.

Possibly: 30% of pregnant women experience implantation bleeding at about the time they would expect their period. They mistake this bleeding as their period, when in fact, it isn't.
