User avatar Hello,
It has happened but is highly unlikely on that day. Most people are fertile somewhere between day 8 through day 19 if you have a regular cycle, but there is wide variation between women. In actuality you are only fertile around 3 days a month but you don't know exactly which days those are. Your period days are the least likely time for ovulation to occur.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes.
