Hi Jeannettepap,

I apologize for the delay in answering you but normally there are not a lot of people on our communities in those wee hours of the night. While there is no exact way to predict when you ovulate there is only a very slim chance that you can conceive on your period. However, it's not out of the realm of possibilities. If you think you are pregnant I'd suggest that you take a home pregnancy test.

Good luck either way!

Thank you so much for your response. I have another question if you don't mind, if it turns out that I did conceive while on my period, i would need to have an abortion as soon as possible, i currently do not have any children, i am 34 and would love to have children ( just not with this person). What would be the chances of me conceiving again after an abortion and at my age?
