Doubtful: Never say never but when you are on your period there are no eggs to fertilize. Ovulation occurs roughly mid cycle. That is when you can get pregnant.

Absolutely: If you were ovulating around that time, it's very much possible to get pregnant.

Maybe: Not sure i understand your question correctly, you said 2 days before your period started. Obviously, if your period started then you are not pregnant. Just keep in mind that some people are really fertile, and they can get pregnant even when trying to time things just right. That's why the "rhythm" method (sex only certain days of your cycle) doesn't work that great.

No: If that was your normal time for your period you lucked out. But if you don't want to be a mother now don't have unprotected sex!

Yes: Women ovulate - or make an egg -- about 14 days before they get their period. From about 20 to 14 days before the next period is the time that women are most likely to get pregnant.
