    You can get pregnant if you have sex during a period. The chance is not that high, but that's not the point - the point is that it's better not to take the risk in the first place, and having unprotected sex puts you at risk of catching sexually transmitted infections (STDs).

    You should talk to someone about the risk you have taken, and you may need urgent emergency contraception. Call Brook Advisory service today for expert help. Here's a link to their number: http://www.thesite.org/sex/national_helplines.html

    I think we've had previous posts about this subject before, so you could do a search to find out more (the link is at the top right of this page).
