Hi anon and thanks for your question.

If you had your period then you can't be pregnant. Menstruation only happens when you're not pregnant. Each month, your uterus grows a thick blood-rich lining in preparation for an egg to embed there. If you don't get pregnant that month, you shed this tissue and blood – that's your menstrual period.

Hope that helps,
