It is difficult to get pregnant right before your period, since ovulation takes place around 2 weeks before the next period. This is true among women who have regular menstrual cycles and ovulation can be predicted to occur around mid-cycle. However, some women have irregular cycles. If your ovulation takes place later than expected (mid-cycle), say on the 24th day of the cycle instead of around 14th day, and fertilization and implantation take place, then pregnancy can occur right before your expected period. Some women also have episodes of vaginal bleeding that are mistaken for periods but are not actually counted as a menstrual period. Since you may not know when your period is due and you are not sure if a bleeding episode is an actual period, then it may be possible to become pregnant on what you think is a day or so before your menstrual period.

Aside from this, there is another explanation of how a woman can get pregnant before her expected period. A study reveals that it is possible for a woman to ovulate more than once within a menstrual cycle. Canadian researchers found that out of 63 women included in the study, 10% ovulated twice in a month. Their findings suggest an explanation of how one can get pregnant close to the expected period and why some contraceptive methods fail. While most of the participants ovulated only once, a few had two to three waves of maturing eggs that could be released from the ovaries. Their results show that contrary to conventional knowledge about menstrual cycles, women can ovulate more than once a month and can get pregnant even more than once, which coincides with the 10% occurrence rate of non-identical twins.
