Actually I was told by my doctor that in the middle and the end of my period is the easiest to get pregnant. But I am not a doctor so you should consult your doctor and maybe have a test done.

It totally depends on your cycle.  You are most fertile in the 5 days leading up to ovulation.  If you tend to have a shorter cycle, say,less than 28 days, then you have a higher chance of getting pregnant while on your period.  If your cycle is longer, then you probably will not get pregnant by having sex during AF.  If you're trying to avoid pregnancy, then your best bet is to use some form of protection every time.
