Only then will a womans fertile woman actually play a role so close to cessation of bleeding

Correction: ...will a womans fertile WINDOW...

actually, no every body is the same in terms of the workings of the follicular and luteal phases- as well as conception and implantation timeline.  The follicular phase can be influenced by outside factors (stress, illness, medications, etc) that can lead to a delayed ovulation or even annovulation (no ovulation).  The luteal phase is the constant part of the reproductive cycle (12-15 days depending on the individual cycle but most often 14 days) and if it is less than 10 days the woman is considered to have a luteal phase defect and is treated accordingly. 

 If someone is truly on their period then their lining is being shed- giving a possible embryo nothing to implant to- which is how the "Plan B" or "the morning after pill" operates: by forcing the lining to shed. 

So again- no you cannot get pregnant on your period UNLESS you bleed for between 8-10 days (this does not include spotting).  Only then will a womans fertile woman actually play a role so close to cessation of bleeding
yes you can get pregnant while you are on it. everybody is DIFFERENT
no you can't get pregnant while on your period, and yes fibroids (dependant on their size and location) can affect both getting pregnant as well as the pregnancy itself
