No, you do not want to be on your period when trying to get pregnant. The best time to try is when you are ovulating. That is half way through your cycle. For example: my cycle length each month is 30 days so the time I'm most likely to conceive is 15 days past the first day of my last period.

No, while you can get pregnant while you are on your period, you must be ovulating to get pregnant. Ovulation usually occurs 14 days after your period...usually.
