No, although a woman may be fertile during her period due to fertile quality cervical mucus (thus pregnancy is a possibility from sex during menstruation) she cannot ovulate during menstruation. Typically women ovulate 14 days before menstruation, or if a woman has a short menstrual cycle she may ovulate next right after menstruation.

Yes, in fact that is often when women ovulate.

Unless a woman uses something such as fertility awareness method she cannot know for sure when she is fertile or ovulating - remember cycles change.
