Pathologies aside, yes. But it can be suppressed with some contraceptive pills.

All physically intact women do, unless they're pregnant.
As you may know, the 'period' itself involves the shedding of the endometrial lining. This does NOT happen during (a healthy) pregnancy.

Have sex during menstruation is kinda gross since there would be blood everywhere. Also, at that time, usually women don't have a willing to have sex due to hormonal cycle. Some women suffer painful and uncomfortable because of uterine contraction, bleeding, and unbalance 'tone' resulted from the hormonal change. However, some women do not matter to have sex in their period. And, yes, they cannot get pregnant at their menstrual period, unless there's another ready-to-be-fertilized egg from another ovary, but this case is rarely happened.

If they have a rare double ovulation during their cycle and the other egg is behind the other then yes they can get pregnant. So rule of thumb contraceptive every time. Its why the the calender method is only effective 3/4 of all times in sexual activity.
