I heard I can get pregnant 14 days after the day I start my period. Is that right?

In brief: It depends

If you have regular, predictable cycles conception is most likely between 12-14 days before your next cycle.
So, assuming a 28day menstrual pattern, then yes- that would be around day 14. If cycle length is every 30 days, then it would be around day 15-16. That's why it's important to know your menstrual pattern. So, not recess adult days after the start of a period but actually days before!
