some women ovulate during their period. that's because their cycles haven't quite smoothed out. this is why we say it's a bad idea to assume you can't get pregnant on your period.

add to that: gravity works in mysterious ways. semen can dribble out of your anus and into your vulva. thus, sperm can still get inside.

therefore, yes, it is possible to get pregnant. call up planned parenthood 1.800.800.PLAN to get emergency contraception. the sooner, the more effective. and on the way back, but some condoms with water-based lube. use them every time from now on.

If the shoe fits, it's probably your size.

In addition, unprotected Anal Sex is a high risk activity for the transmission and contraction of STDs/STIs, namely for

  • Bacterial Vaginosis
  • Chlamydia
  • Cytomegalovirus (CMV)
  • Gonorrhea
  • Hepatitis B
  • Herpes Simplex
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
  • Human Papilloma Virus (HPV, Warts)
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
  • Pubic Lice
  • Scabies
  • Syphilis
  • Trichomoniasis

So unless you and your partner have had two clear screens, six months apart with all sex during those six months being protected, you'll both need an STD screen, too.

You can get that at Sexual Health and Planned Parenthood Clinics, too.

Furthermore, when using condoms for anal sex, make sure you do not use them for vaginal intercourse later on. Switch condoms if you switch between vaginal and anal intercourse.
Team your condoms up with some nice lube, too, many people prefer a slightly slicker lube for anal sex, such as a silicone based one.

As the other two advocates have already said, you still have a risk of pregnancy even if you're still on your period--sperm can live in the vagina for a while.
Call 1.800.800.PLAN, get in contact with a Planned Parenthood, or go to a local clinic to obtain emergency contraception. The faster the better, gal, especially since tommorrow is Thanksgiving in the US. I don't know if you live in the US or not, but if you do live in the US, some of your local resources may be closed tommorrow for the it's time to act now.
