See below: If you have sex at the very end of your menstural cycle and you still have viable sperm in your body by the time you ovulate - it is possible. However, would require all the timings of things to come in line.

Unlikely: Unlikely , but need to cheek for std see your doctor.

Possible: While it is less likely to have an egg get fertilized and stay in the uterus and successfully grow during menstruation... It is not impossible. You wouldn't be the first person.

How to get pregnant: There are so many people working their hardest to help young teenagers know about their body and about how to prevent pregnancy. Here is the catch. You have to ask for help. If your period was on schedule and normal you cannot get pregnant during your period. The definition of not being pregnant is having a period. Young girls have a lot of reasons for no period. Please please see a doctor.

Maybe. Maybe not.: A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed.

However, in reality it is very unlikely. I would recommend a good birth control method.
