This is because the female menstrual cycle is as unpredictable as females! Sometimes the woman's ovaries can release a mature egg during the time of her period as well. If this is the case, the woman can get pregnant if she has sex during this time.

Why is it not as easy to get pregnant on your period then when your not on your period?

Ovulation usually happens in the middle of a woman's period (10-15 days after period) and is the period when the woman is fertile. That is why it is highly unlikely that women get pregnant during their period. Pregnancy is most likely if intercourse occurs anywhere from 6 days before ovulation until 2-3 days after ovulation, however, this varies and it depends on the length and regularity of a woman's periods and how long the sperm lives after intercourse. To avoid pregnancy it is best to use protection all the time but to get pregnant it is a good idea to buy ovulation-tests. Hope this helps.

A woman can only get pregnant if she has sex during ovulation or for the week prior when there is fertile cervical mucus present - but without tracking her cycles with FAM she can't know when she is fertile or not, so she must always assume she is fertile. Thus if a woman does not use birth control then she could get pregnant 17 days after her period.
