Possibly: Women experience variations in their menstrual cycle and flow all the time, due to hormonal fluctuations caused by things like illness or stress. Are you always regular? Was your period at the exact same time as usual? Was the blood clotted? Have you taken a pregnancy test, if this has never happened during your cycle before? That would be the 1st thing I would do. See your doc for further symptom. ...Read more

Unlikely: If you have regular periods, that means that when you're menstruating, your uterine lining is unstable and detaching, causing your bleeding. That's all normal, so if an egg drops down into your uterus, it's not going to have a nice place to implant until your lining gets built back up, which can take about 10 days starting from day 1. So unlikely you'll get pregnant. Consider birth control! ...Read more
