“Is it possible to get pregnant if you have sex with your boyfriend while on your period?”

A: Anytime a woman has sex without using a method of birth control a pregnancy is possible. If a woman misses or is late for her monthly period she may be pregnant. Pregnancy testing is available at the Family Planning Association by calling 440-352-0608 or 440-992-5953 to schedule an appointment or by contacting a personal physician or purchasing a home testing kit.
