Can I get pregnant during my period?

Many people believe that you can’t get pregnant while you’re having your period. It’s true that it’s less common to become pregnant while menstruating, but it can happen. Because of this, it’s important to use protection even during menstruation. The use of contraceptives such as condoms or birth control pills can prevent pregnancy. However, birth control pills may alter the amount of blood lost during a period and make a period more regular, forcing it into a 28-day cycle. If you are unsure, consult with your doctor to find which is best suited for you.
