Apologies for the delay in responding.

Whilst the chances are diminished by the fact that the wall of the uterus sheds during the period and therefore making it less likely that a fertilized egg can 'attach'; it is not impossible. Can I suggest that you repost your question on the Gynae expert forum to be sure - go to the Health 24 home page and look her up in the list of experts.
