Can you get pregnant on your period?

We wanted to find out how much people know about the menstrual cycle.

The question this time is: Can you get pregnant while you’re on your period?

Tweet us and let us know if you knew the answer!

The answer: Yes!

You don’t have to ovulate on your period to be able to get pregnant during your period. Sperm can survive in your reproductive tract for several days so it is possible to be in your fertile window (and therefore get pregnant) while you are menstruating.

To find out more about the menstrual cycle, download Clue.
