It is unlikely, once your body starts producing the pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), your normal periods will stop. If you are concerned that you may be pregnant, it is advisable to take a pregnancy test or see your doctor rather than make any assumptions.

Having said that, bleeding in early pregnancy is surprisingly common. You may have what looks like a period. This is known as breakthrough bleeding. It happens when the hormones that control your menstrual cycle break through the pregnancy hormones that are flooding your body.

Bleeding may happen when the fertilised egg implants into the lining of your uterus (womb). This usually happens at about the time your period would have been due, and is called implantation bleeding. It's thought that any blood you notice around this time is more likely to be because of breakthrough bleeding than implantation bleeding.

It's only natural to be worried if you have spotting or bleeding at this time. It's a good idea to tell your doctor or midwife about any bleeding, because occasionally, it can be a cause for concern. Unfortunately, sometimes bleeding may be the first sign of a miscarriage. If so, it probably won't feel like a normal period. You are likely to have stronger tummy cramps and much heavier bleeding.

If you have dark or watery bleeding, together with sharp pains in your lower tummy, especially on one side, call your doctor straight away. You could have an ectopic pregnancy, and you'll need swift treatment.

It's much more likely that your bleeding is nothing to worry about. However, your midwife may look into why you've had it. Midwives and doctors often use the first day of your last period to estimate when your baby is due to be born. If you're only just pregnant, she may suggest that you have a blood test to check your hormone levels or she may refer you for an early scan.

Absolutely she can...I had a period for the first 4 months of my first 3 pregnancies and for the 1st month with the one I am pregnant with now, my doctor said it wasn't that unusual...however all of my babies were born very premature and very small because I have an incompetent cervix...

There may be a chance take a test and I wish you luck.

I have a question its been over 2 months since I last slept with my ex and ive had 2 periods since then at the right times but I felt sick the other day and a strange taste in my mouth that I had when I was pregnant before. Ive been pregnant 3 times and have 2 children. This isn't really the best time for me to be pregnant and before I waste money on an expensive test I was wondering if it was possible as I would have to be around 7 weeks/8 weeks gone and like ive said ive had 2 periods, I didnt have periods during my pregnancy's though I did have 2 bleeds with one but thats because I'm Reus d negative and had to have injections. If anyone could help I would appreciate it thank you.

The easiest way to tell if you are pregnant is to buy a home
pregnancy test kit. The new ones are more accurate than the
versions of several years ago. Buy one kit and use it a week
after you stop. Buy another of a different brand and try it about
a month later. I HOPE this works for you. Please tell your finance
thanks for serving!

It doesn't sound as if she is pregnant. Although its possible to continue having periods it is unusual.
I don't think you have any cause to be worried, but unless you start using protection you may be asking this question again next month!

Ok, I have a question. My fiance and I have been trying to have a baby for about 4 months now and no such luck. Well my periods are pretty much regular, they come at any time of the first week of every month. Well this month, the last couple of days of May I had been getting really bad cramps and I had been really moody and usely that is a sign for me that my period is coming soon. And starting back on the 2nd of this month, the cramps returned and it was a tiny spot of blood shown so I thought my period would start anytime or min. Well days went by and still no period but the cramps still continued to follow. About the 5th of this month, the cramps felt like they wanted to change the way they felt. After that some days I wouldn't cramp at all. Well by now I was about 5 days late on starting my period. But on the 9th, I finally started and the first few days were extremely painful and the flow was a lot more than usual and at times seemed darker. Well before and after my period I I got really big right around my bellybutton area and I thought it was just bloating, but I am off my period and I'm still big. And at times sometimes I just don't feel good and I tend to be grouchier and other times. I don't know what this means. But I'll also tell you that when I didn't start my period yet, I took a preg. Test right after me and my fiance had unprotected and he did get off inside me, he has for the past 4 mons. But me taking the test after that, could that have effected the reading.....I don't know someone help me I'm only 16.

No you do not get your period if you are pregnant. You can bleed and it may seem like your period but it isn't.  A period sheds the lining of the uterus which you don't do when you are pregnant (the baby is attached to the uterus) I'm 99% sure your girlfriend is not pregnant but use a condom everytime or have her get on birth control.

Its very unlikely that you are if you have had your period, but it is possible as some people do have periods while they are pregnant. Most women are most fertile two weeks after there period and having lots of sex does not increase your chances of getting pregnant. Take a test to see when your most fertile and try working with that. Don't worry tho some time it can take a way but its def worth the wait x
