is it possible to have a period and still be pregnant

I had spotting on Thursday of last week had it for 14 hours and it was gone but Friday afternoon and then Saturday morning I started bleeding but it was not my normal period, I had upper stomach pain, and nothing eles. I had this for two days and that was it, I have brown spotting now and that is it. I am going to call my local health department tomorrow and see if they can tell me what could it be but I was wondering if any of you ladies had this

  • NO. it is NOT possible to have your period and be pregnant. Your period by definition is the shedding of the uterine lining that is necessary to maintain a pregnancy and would also flush out the egg. however, it is possible to experience bleeding and be pregnant. There is implantation bleeding, but that often is a one time thing and not very common. Women can be pregnant and even experience monthly bleeding similar to a period, but there is an extent to which this is normal and a point where it isn't. A million things can cause an irregular period. This is just one of those things that could be an indicator of pregnancy or you really did just get your period.

  • Yes, but then it wasn't a period, it was bleeding. I did that the whole time I was pregnant with my son for no apparent reason.
