Yes, this is true. Sparkleflower has the better answer. A woman can only get pregnant when she is fertile, which is only for a few days a month and CAN include when she is still having her period.
The trick is knowing when this fertile time is and then avoiding any risky contact for quite a number of days before, during and after. THAT's where the trouble is. I'm not going to get into a long explanation but basically, a woman can only get pregnant when an egg has been released (her ovulation) and that is only about once a month.
Anyway, I'm just trying to make the statements "a woman can only get pregnant when she is fertile (egg present)", "a woman is only fertile for a few days a month", and "a woman can ovulate at any time of the month" a little clearer (don't know if I helped though!). People tend to mix and match info from each.
If you are planning on using this "only a few days a month" info as a way to avoid her getting pregnant, don't. That's called the rhythm method and it doesn't work. The casual user would have to be psychic to know in advance when she's going to be ovulating, and then avoid having sex since semen can hang around for days just waiting...
