Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your query. It is highly impossible to get pregnant due to unprotected intercourse during your period. Endometrium of the uterus is not habitable for a conception during this condition and hence pregnancy is not possible at this time.

Thank you doctor,

I saw a gynecologist, she told me that there is a chance of pregnancy. How it is possible if my partner has not discharged?
