  • I'm not sure if it's considered a period, but I bleed for about the first 6 months of my pregnancy... Not a normal flow... But almost the same time every month....

  • You may bleed while pregnant, but it's not a period.

  • Not really. I would consider a period any bleeding that lasts for 5 or 6 days, cramps, a flow that makes you need to change tampons, pads every few hours.
    Maybe you are having something else if it is really light?
    Or maybe you are NOt pregnant?
    Take a test!

  • Vaginal bleeding can be normal, but it's not a true period. The purpose of a period is to shed the intrauterine lining, and if an amniotic sac is attached, nothing is being shed and the cervix is closed and tight.
