Is it possible to get pregnant while on your period? Can an egg be delayed in its release and not get flushed out by your period?
Yes, it is possible to get pregnant while you are having your period. Ovulation, which is when your body releases an egg, can be VERY irregular, especially in adolescents. You must always use birth control if you have intercourse.
