Could I be pregnant after having sex during my period?


Q: I got my period and on day 1, 2 and 3 I had unprotected sex. On day 4, my period stopped completely even though the first 3 days were ridiculously heavy. Day 5 and Day 6 I had light brown spotting. This was 2 weeks ago and the past week I have had a huge change in my vaginal discharge. It is thick, white, odourless and there is so much I need to change underwear. This never happens to me. I keep cramping on and off also. Could I be pregnant or is it impossible because I was on my period?

Symptoms:  Increase in vaginal discharge, Cramping
