Hi! Many thanks for your question on eHealth forum!

Yes, you can especially if you have a long period lasting 8-10 days. Not otherwise. If you have a regular cycle, period lasts 4-5 days, comes once 27 days or so, and you are using condoms, then its unlikely you will get pregnant. Usually in such a scenario pregnancy is not possible even if you do not use condoms. Hope this helps. Take care!
