Possibility of pregnancy after period


Q: Hi Doctor. Is it possible for my girlfriend to get pregnant after her period? The story begins when we had sex at March 22rd of 2012 with a condom, didn't break, and she took plan B one step after 6 hours. Seven days later, March 29, she got her period. During those seven days, we did not have sex, yet we were just playing around, our genitals rubbing on each other, with both our undergarment on only. On March 29th, she got her period. It is now April 2, fifth day of her period, and we did not do anything sexually since March 29th. My girlfriend did tell me today, April 2, though that she feels bloated below her abdomen. Is that normal and how likely for my girlfriend to be pregnant after her period? As my girlfriend described, her period was between normal and heavy.
