Can I be pregnant and not miss my periods?

I'm 16, and had sex two days into my period 13 days ago.
Also, If you have sex during your period, does it stop if you conceive then?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

Having sex during your period can lead to pregnancy, especially if you ovulate early. However, it's not common for this to happen.

But pregnancy happens about 10 days after you have sex, it's not something that happens straight away (many are not aware of that) so your period would not stop.
Thanks for writing!
