I don't think it's impossible.

For one thing, sperm can remain viable in the fallopian tubes for up to 7 days after intercourse.  So the real question might be can a woman get pregnant ten days after her period has finished.  Of course, the answer to that is yes.

Absolutely! If you ovulate soon after your period.   
A man's sperm can live for up to three-five days in a woman's body, a woman can get pregnant anytime of the month even while on her period.

Normally a woman is most fertile (ovulation) 3-5 days before her period and 3 days after her period.

A woman's fertile period lasts for about a week each month. Sperm can survive in the cervix for up to a week, and the egg is viable for 24 to 48 hours after ovulation.

Actually, most women on a normal 28 day cycle with their periods will ovulate approximately 14 days into her cycle. For example the first day you start your period is cycle day 1. So you would count from the first day you started your period to 14 days and that is when it is possible to get pregnant. From cycle day 13-17 I would be very careful if you were trying to avoid pregnancy.

In the 2005 NIH study, Wilcox and his colleagues studied the menstruation cycles of 213 women, most between the ages of 25 and 35, when a woman's cycles are most likely to be regular. They found that a woman's fertile period can extend to the day when menstruation is predicted to begin. In addition, they found that a woman can become fertile as early as day 4 of her cycle, and that 17% are fertile by day. Therefore, menstruation is no guarantee that a woman will not become pregnant when engaging in sexual intercourse.

Here is a really good forum on BIRTH CONTROL MYTHS

There are birth control methods that are medically proven to be effective in preventing an unwanted pregnancy. There are also many other methods that some people think will work to avoid pregnancy, which don't work. We're glad you're reading about birth control methods. We think it's just as important for you to know what doesn't work as what does. If you don't want to get pregnant, don't believe or practice any of the following so-called birth control methods.

Several myths, or stories, about birth control deal with what is supposed to be the "safe" time of the month for a woman. Maybe you've heard that a woman can have intercourse without worrying about pregnancy three days before and three days after her period. Or that she can't get pregnant during her period.

NONE OF THIS IS TRUE. Unless you are using a medically proven effective method of birth control, she could get pregnant any time of the month that she has sexual intercourse. There are several reasons for this. Even if a woman's periods are pretty regular, she can never be sure when her ovaries are releasing an egg. Ovulation, the release of the egg from the ovaries, has nothing to do with when you had your last period. It depends on when you will have your next period, which is something you can never be sure of. Especially for younger women, this is a very risky approach to birth control, because for the first few years in the woman's periods will probably be very irregular.

For more information about your menstrual cycle, see that page.

Sickness, emotional strain, even a change in the seasons can affect the ovulation cycle in women of all ages. Remember, also, that the life of sperm is five to seven days. Trying to figure out the safe period of the month is also called the rhythm method, it is very unsafe.

Some people believe that you can rinse out sperm from the vagina and uterus after sexual intercourse. You may have heard that douching, which means squirting a liquid into the vagina, will rinse out the sperm. Or that urinating or taking a bath or shower will wash it out. WRONG! Another myth.

Douching with Coca Cola is supposed to kill sperm - and it does, but we don't recommend it, unless you are in Science Class and doing it in a test tube.

Some people think that deodorant vaginal suppositories or deodorant vaginal sprays will also kill sperm. Again, none of these are methods for birth control and equally important is the fact that they can be harmful and none of these methods work.

There are stories that say you can't get pregnant depending on how you "do it," or how often you've done it before. Like you can't get pregnant if you do it standing up. Or you can't get pregnant if you're doing it for the first time.

I remember hearing that you can't get pregnant during the full moon if you "do it" standing up in a closet. Now that sounds a bit like a myth, doesn't it? It is a myth. Warning: A birth control method that depends on position, or how many times you have sex, is not a birth control method.

Some people believe that a woman can't conceive if she doesn't have an orgasm. The fact is that whether or not a woman has an orgasm has nothing to do with her ability to get pregnant.

Some couples rely on having the guy pull out -- that is, removing the man's penis form the woman's vagina just before he thinks he will ejaculate. This is just as risky as any other things we've talked about. First, there is usually a drop or two of clear fluid at the tip of the penis that appears before ejaculation, and these drops usually contain a few sperm. Since it takes only one sperm to unite with the egg for pregnancy to occur, ejaculation isn't always necessary. Sometimes all it takes is putting the penis inside the vagina. Second, ejaculation is often such a powerful physical and emotional feeling that a guy doesn't have total control over it, no matter what he thinks. Sometimes a man means to pull out, but gets carried away and doesn't. Also, it's hard for a guy to know exactly when he'll ejaculate. Third, if a guy pulls out and ejaculates near his partner's vagina, a few sperm might mix with the moisture around the vagina and move into it. Some sperm are great swimmers!

Birth control pills are very effective - but only if the pills are taken according to your the correct directions, as we discussed in The Pill section. Many people believe that being on the pill means taking one a month, or one before sexual intercourse, or one after. See the FAQ pages for what to do if you missed a pill. If you want something to use once a month, read about Lunelle or Depo-Provera.

Plastic sandwich wrap around the penis may sound like a good substitute for a condom, but it's not!  Wrap your lunch with it instead.

No, tooth paste is not a spermicide, never use it in place of one. (yes, people ask me that).

We can't tell you all the myths about birth control because there are new ones being invented all the time. If you don't want to get pregnant or get someone pregnant, be suspicious of any method that isn't a medically proven effective one. To get information on methods that work to prevent an unwanted pregnancy, see your health care provider, a birth control clinic, or read our Birth Control section.

Answer from Amara


As we all know, pregnancy results from when a sperm joins with an ovum and successfully plants itself in the uterous.  A woman can ovulate, even during her period, and, especially if her period is on the long side, she may very well ovulate before all of the blood has stopped trickling out.

Pregnancy will occur if the uterous has finished it's expelling of menses and the embryo is able to plant itself.  If it is at the beginning of the period, then the fertilized egg will most likely get pushed out with the rest of the fluids before it is able to implant.  Hence the myth that you can't get pregnant during your period---you can concieve, but whether or not the egg can stay attached and develop into a fetus is the question.
