Though not common, it is possible to fall pregnant when you have your periods. It may be that you have an irregular cycle, so the fact that you see bleeding does not mean that you have not ovulated. I would strongly recommend that you start family planning if you are not planning a pregnancy and that you also practice safe sex by using a condom.
