"Normal",, NO: It is like being "almost pregnant", normal periods will stop, "abnormal periods" may continue especially with ectopic pregnancies. You either are or are not pregnant, therefore get a pregnancy test or see a ob-gyn md to be sure.

Pregnant/bleeding : You can get pregnant and have bleeding but it is not your normal period. It would be related to the pregnancy.

Not during: If it's a normal period, ovulation won't occur until about 14 days after the onset of the period. The fertilized egg can't implant in the uterus during a normal period. With an ectopic pregnancy it's possible to have vaginal bleeding however.

No...: Having a normal regular period means one is not pregnant. Having sex after the period means one could become pregnant on the current month. If the next period comes and is a normal regular one, it means one is not pregnant, again. If worried, one can do a urine pregnancy test the week after missing a period, or 3 weeks after having sex.

Might not be able to: Might be hard to because you are likely not ovulating. I would go get your hormones checked at your gyn.
