I have 3 children, and I know that it is possible to get pregnant while on your period....but thisis what happened, can anyone relate?



My husband and I made love while I was on my period (he just came home from out of town) I was on day 2 (I usually last 5-6 days of super heavy bleeding) the day after intercourse, my period stopped.



This has never happened before. I am VERY fertile....usually all we have to do is walk past each other too closely in the hallway and I get pregnant!



Has anyone conceived on their period? Did it stop mid way through or did your period contiue as normal until the following month?

thanks

My husband was out of town for 6 weeks, he came back the second day into my period, made love and the next day it was gone also, but it continued to come back every single month until I was 13 weeks, so that whole time I had no idea I was even pregnant.

Nope... never been in your shoes.... but I recommend getting a pregnancy test in about two weeks. If your periods are consistent and predictable, then there is definitely something strange going on...



I do know that you can get pregnant, and have your period, while you are pregnant though.

can't help you much but just thought I would mention I'm experiencing the same thing. My husband and I did the same thing on day 1 of my period (when it was meant to arrive), it didn't arrive for another 2 days and then my usual 5-6 day bleeding turned into 2 days light. What the?



Now I've got severe heartburn (only ever got when I was in my 2nd or 3rd trimesters with my sons) and headaches ever since. Thinking it's just hormone related but made an appointment to see the dr this afternoon just in case.



Will let you know the outcome.

thank you. test are all negative but it has only been 11 days since intercourse so it could be too early, or im NOT pregnant! I usually feel symptoms early and I have symptoms now but they can always be attributed to something else.



the two main symptoms that I cannot make up that make me think its a possibility are:

period stopping after sex (usually 6 heavy days/ only 2 days this month)

lack of fertile CM, i should be ovulating now (the texture is way off from what it usually is before i ovulate)



hmmm....ill keep waiting and test again in a while. thanks

worked out it's a sinus infection but the Dr said you can get pregnant anytime including while on your period depending on when the egg is released etc. and because sperm can live 5-7 days after the event!



Will know more next month when your period is missed?!
