What is the percentage rate of a women getting pregnant during her period?


Assuming that sex only takes place during a woman's period, the odds of becoming pregnant would be a bit less than couples using the rhythm method to avoid pregnancy. The rhythm method allows more weeks in a woman's cycle for sex, thus the odds of pregnancy are higher. On average, 20% of couples using the rhythm method find the wife pregnant at the end of a year of sexual intercourse. So the odds for couples only having sex during the monthly menstrual cycle would be greater than 0, but less than 20%.
