FROM OUR EXPERTS
Throughout our lives, women and girls share information on when the best time of the month is to get pregnant, and when it is safe to be intimate without worrying about getting pregnant. But many of these theories are false and end up causing unwanted and unplanned pregnancies. The following are five common myths surrounding getting pregnant. Myth #1 – You cannot get pregnant if you are having your period. It is commonly thought that a woman is fertile and able to get pregnant between the 10 th and 17 th day of their cycle. According to this theory, it would not be possible to become pregnant during your period, which is the beginning of the monthly cycle. A study completed in 2000 by the National Institute of Environmental Sciences shows this is not necessarily true.

Instead, they save them up and come to work sick, only to give the illness to everybody else. Anyway, that's a whole other issue. The bottom line is, I was so sick that I had to take time off from work and use a day I was saving for maternity leave.
