  • You can not have your period while pregnant. You can have spotting from something else, but not a actual period.

  • You should learn to stop worrying. Otherwise you'll be worried 12 times a year every year until menopause and probably even after that! Take birth control.

  • Yes, you CAN have your period while pregnant. I did with my son for the first five months. I didn't find out I was pregnant till I was almost 23 weeks. I found out I was pregnant, that I was having a boy, and that I was 22 and a half weeks pregnant all in one day. You should really take a test first thing in the morning, and if its negative and you still think you might be, then I would call your doctor. Good luck. =]

  • Yes, you can have your period while pregnant. It's the most common reason why many women don't know their pregnant unil into their 2nd trimester. It's possible. If you're paranoid about it, take a test. If you're still worried, call your Dr.

    And maybe think about using a little bit more reliable source of birth control.

  • I am sorry to say, again, that you cannot have your period while pregnant. My mother is a gyno and you defintely can't! You can have vaginal bleeding, but no actual period. If you had a period while pregnant then that would mean you are losing the pregnancy. I am sorry that some of you were misinformed, but what you experienced was not a true pregnancy.
    OP, I would reccomend taking a test if you have a gut feeling and are worried. GL!

  • If you truly had your period for nine months then you were never pregnant. Pregnancy hormones block ovulation and without ovulation you can't have a period. They simply cannot exsist together. You can vaginal bleeding, like implantation or deicdual bleeding. Decidual bleeding is usually what peple had when they say they had their period while they were pregnant. This is when your hormones are out of whack and you are loosing some of the lining of the uterus before the placenta has fully formed.
    I think a lot of woman are uninformed about this. It is the most common misconception my mother deals with.

  • I am wodering how many people it happens to cause there are a lot of people who say they got their period in the first 2 or 3 mons and my doctor said that I conceived my daughter before my last mentral period, there fore I got my period when I was pregnant. I know its not something that normally happens but I think it does happen. That is what my dr. told me.
