If a woman is having very regular periods, she cannot get pregnant on the third day of her period, since her fertile time was 2 weeks earlier.

However, if she is not having regular periods, then it's possible that she is having bleeding that is not due to previous ovulation. In that case, she could possibly ovulate and become pregnant even though she is bleeding.

So I would recommend that you take Plan B, just to be sure. Best wishes.
