Hi everyone! You guys have answered my question before about implantation bleeding.
But for Sex Ed at school, we have to make a presentation on pregnancy during period.
Can a girl become pregnant on the last day of her period lets say? I know there needs to be an egg to be fertilized but so many answers online!

Hi mariajose!

Check out this article and scroll down to "On what days can someone get pregnant?" : http://www.scarleteen.com/article/reproduction/where_did_i_come_from_a_refresher_course_in_human_reproduction

The short answer is... bodies are fickle things that don't always stick to a perfect schedule, so it's always better to play it safe.

Aw thank you! This really helped! [Smile]

Very stupid assignment in my opinion and I know you can't get pregnant through clothes but the main question, people get pregnant while on their period because they actually have intercourse right? Not by dry sex?

Yes, that is referring to getting pregnant through intercourse.
