I was a week late and was showing all the symptoms of being pregnant again then i started spotting which is really weird for me since i dont spot at the beginning of my periods then i started bleeding im assuming if i was pregnant pretty sure i was then i probably not now but just wondering if it is possible to have bleeding when your pregnant.

It is quite possible to be pregnant and still have a period. There are women who spot or bleed monthly throughout pregnancy. I am not one of these women but with my son, i was 8 days late (I'm never late), then had a 4 day period, then found out 4 weeks later that I was 11 weeks pregnant. I just thought that I couldn't be since I had that period. Get a pregnancy test. Ease your mind.

Yep, very possible to get your period while pregnant. I had bleeding for the first 6months of my 3rd pregnancy, that's why I didn't know I was preggers until I was almost 6months.

Yes it is possible to be pregnant and still have a period. With my second I had what I thought was a period for the first 2 months. So ide advise you to go to your obgyn! Good Luck!

Yes it is possible to be pregnant and still having a period. alot of things cause bleeding, for one implantation of the fertilized egg into the uterus causing spotting and your cervix can bleed with complications alot of things can cause it thats why some women never know they are pregnant because they think they are having a period and they really arent.

here's one more. When I was preg with my fourth, I started bleeding, but on closer inspection, it was anal bleeding. Looked it up on Google and found anal
bleeding at around 5 weeks was a thing. Something about the radical decrease of available progesterone making the anal passage dehydrate and crack. It didn't hurt or anything. I couldn't tell it wasn't vaginal without some detective work though, so I'm throwing it out there.

My Mom had regular periods with her first baby (my older sister). She didn't even know she was pregnant until she was about 3 months along.



Now, mind you, it isn't normal to be pregnant and still have a period. So, if that's happening let your doctor know. I bled twice while I was pregnant, really freaked me out but things turned out to be ok. Hope things do for you too!

I would go to your ob/gyn and have them do an ultrasound. My second pregnancy I had, I spotted and bled during the 8 weeks I was pregnant. They did an ultrasound and found an empty gestational sack....calling mine a blighted ovum. So, not to scare you...but that was my symptoms related to that. Everything could be totally fine for you. I would just make an appointment and ease your mind a little.

it's possible to bleed during a pregnancy but it's not a period, I would go to the obgyn and find out if you are pregnant especially if your on birth control.
