Is it possible

Ok so if I hadn't just had my period I would swear I was pregnant. I have had heartburn for the last month, my boobs hurt, I'm sick to my stomache, and I am forgetful. Can you still have a period and be pregnant? Does that really happen? I told DH and he said I should take a test, but I don't want to wast the money yet at the same time I don't want to resume my b/c if I am.

  • It's not that expensive to buy a generic brand test. They all work the same to detect the hcg hormone. If you think you could be pregnant, you should take a test.

  • Taking a test wouldn't hurt.. But experiencing heavy menstrual bleeding during pregnancy is not normal.

  • yeah you can be preg and still have a period. it happens sometimes you should go to a women health clinic and get tested you can sign up for a free service program if your clinic has that program and the preg test will be free.......good luck

  • can happen! It's one of the reasons my SIL went all the way to labor without knowing she was pregnant...she was having her "period" every month...

  • I know, I guess it's not the money but more of the fact that my son just turned 2 and my daughter is not even 9months. So I guess I'm more scared to know.

  • Dollar stores have $1 tests and they work just as good. So I would take a test.
