Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query to HCM,
Firstly it has to be understood that ovulation usually doesn't occur during your menses unless it has been radiologically confirmed that an egg from the previous cycle accidentally ruptured from the ovary during that time. It is always usually between day 14-day16 in a 30 day cycle. If that is what you mean then a sex in ovulation period can get you pregnant. But if you have been having your menses and the last menses you had lasted for 7 days ( which is again normal, possibly due to stress) , confirms that you are not pregnant. Menses don't resume if you would have been pregnant unless pregnancy has been confirmed by a serum beta hcg test earlier and then this could be a threatened abortion.
I hope i have answered your concerns,
Regards
