Although you may have heard of women that had “periods” during pregnancy, the truth is you cannot be pregnant and have a period at the same time. Once a woman conceives her body starts producing hCG and her menstrual cycle stops. This is not to say that a woman cannot have bleeding that resembles a period when she is pregnant, but the bleeding is not actually a period.

I have every symptom of pregnancy. Gas, nausea , headaches, sore breasts, hardening stomach, gained 5 pound etc. Well last month I had bleeding a little earlier than my expected period. It was light and mostly brown and light red. All of my pregnancy test say negative. I have had 2 days of blood near my expected period this month. Could I be pregnant? I'm only 16 so please help. Thanks.

I am not sure. You should talk to your doctor about this fear. I know that I had light spotting during my first month about when my period was due- mainly brown and light red also. I took 2 preg tests and both came back negative, but did a test again a few days later and had 2 very positive tests! I'd re-test in a week or so and see. If still negative, I'd see about talking with a doctor (even if it may be embarrassing to talk with a doctor if may be best).

I neeed lots of help. Heres the deal, im 18 years old and my bf is 21, a marine. He was home feb 4-18. I was with him every night. We had unprotected sex almost every night besides one. He pulled out well anyways, i wasnt suppose to but i started my period the 6-12 of feb. We were still having sexx. i started my period a week early! the 6th of March. Although i have hyper thyroid im way past exhausted these days & sometimes i have to pee so frequently and badly i pee on myself somewhat before i get to the restroom! anyway, this last period seemed normal, maybe somewhat lighter i honestly wasnt worried until the headaches and nausea began, what do you think the chances of me being pregnant are? i need advice. i took a pregnancy test before this last "period" it was negative so i thought the worry was over, now however im not so sure...
HELP ME PLZZ!

Yesterday, i went to the doctor's office and had negative urine test but then in afternoon noticed light bleeding. For the last three weeks, i have been moody, tired, increased appetite and suffering from sinus pressure. Prior to my period starting at least i think i am, my last period was on 2-4-11 and what was weird was the fact that it lasted 4 days, the first and last being very light and the other two days heavy. Typically, my periods last 5-6 days and the 2-3 days are the heaviest. My husband and i have been having unprotected sex since 12-12-10. Am i making a big deal out of nothing? i am 37 with 3 children

I am confused last month i had my period March 18 and i am normally 28 days cycle so i am expecting to have my period this month somewhere in 15 or 16 but i didn't have it until 4-23 which started really really light that i didn't used a pad and it just left light brown color on my liner but when i wipe after i urinating i see a blood on the tissue and it's red, i just started using pad on the third day but it's not like the normal period i used to have, this time i don't feel any cramping which i usually get every time i have my period. My husband and i used natural method and this is the first time that my period started really late. Could i be pregnant? I am still bleeding and sometimes i see a small blood clot when i urinate. I also feel nauseous and sometimes i feel like i'm sleepy and tired even when my bleeding/period started? I already had one pregnancy but i never experience this when i had my son so i'm confused and worried at the same time coz i'm not sure if i am having my period, miscarriage or implantation bleeding.

I'm confused, needless to say. The last time I was intimate with someone was April 9th, 2011. We didn't use a condom the whole time we were together, & people keep telling me you can get pregnant if he "precummed" also. I don't know if that's the case though. I do kind of think the condom might have tore also, & he never told me. He pulled out to "finish" his business & I couldn't understand that because he was wearing a condom by then. I ovulated 3 days later, & I know sperm can live inside of a woman for up to 7 days. I had what I think was a period last week, but it wasn't normal for me. It was very light, & lasted about 4 days. I have PCOS & my periods are always 7 days long with it only being light the last day. This wasn't the case at all. Could I possibly be pregnant?

Don't worry. Do one more test. Finely it will show positive if it is so. But I don't think this signs can mean that if you had your period anyways.

My mom had her period for the first 4 months of her pregnancy with me. She was on time, had it for seven days, started light , got heavy , and ended light. this is incorrect. The doctor even told her that she CAN have her period during her pregnancy. i wasn't born premee either. I was actually a week late. therefore, this is incorrect.

okay it might get a little confusing but i had unprtected sex on the 1st of this month. and expected my period on the 8th on the same day i took a hpt but it came back negs. (my period is normally on time or a day or 2 off never anymore than that). anyways we did it again on the 13th. i then went to the doctors on the 15th n took a test there it also came back negiative. i've had just bout all the signs i know of; over tiredness, late period, nausea sorta feeling, headaches, n the worst back pain (but i think that ones cause my back is just ****** up). just this moring i noticed like dark red almost brown spots of blood so put a med in n the last 2 times ive changed it they came out with a little blood on like enough to cover it. i never been on or took the moring after pill or any birth control.
is this my period (considering its just under 2 weeks late) or spotting or what im so confused?
PLEASEEEEEEEE HELP !

Hi, Is it possible to be pregnant and have regular monthly period flows(sometimes late periods) after which? I'm confused with spotting against regular period flows. Does spotting occurs on a monthly basis as well in the early stage of pregnancy? Example for the first 3 months. Thank You

Bleeding as heavy as a light period or more is not normal ever during pregnancy.
It may be a sign of a complication. If you have any bleeding call your docotor right away.

With my first pregnancy I had my reg. period for 3 months a full blown period that was heavy from the begining to the end ... I didn't have any complications ,infections or miscarriages... This is incorrect !!!!

This can get confusing But I need help and answers please!

But my issue now is I have never planned a child both my girls were unexpected and my husband and I are trying to conceive ... I started my period on August 8th and ended on the 25th of August .... Well I had my Mirena IUD removed on August 26th and we started trying to conveive right away ... We had sex from the 26th - 31st and then I started what my doctor called a withdrawal period from having the Mirena IUD removed , It ended on Sept.6th . My husband and I started having sex again about every 2 days ... I started what I thought was my period on Sept. 14th and ended on Sept.18th if it was my period it started 3 days early and started light to heavy then just cold turkey it stopped ...Usually my periods last 7-8 days long and are Heavy for the first 5 days and then light the last 2-3 days ... I don't know when to test for preg. or if I should even test?? I don't know what to do? I have had a so called period twice since my actual period on August 17th-25th... Could my last so called "PERIOD" actually be my period ?

I don't know about it, but some people say yes, a nurse at the docs office said you can, I feel sick to my stomach but had my period last week. ended the 9th. I've been having sex since 8/24 and here and there when I see my bf. I took a test and it said neg. am I pregnant or am I just comming down with the flu. i don't have any other signs though.
