I'm posting in this forum because it it's popular and large! I'm wondering if anyone can m

ake sense

of this for me....

My husband came home from being out of town on the second day of my period. we did not use protection that night thinking it was "safe" the next day my period stopped completely And never came back. It is usually super heavy and lasts 6 days. Has anyone goren pregnant while on their period and if you did, did u continue your period and miss the next month, or did it stop mid cycle? Any input would be great! The medical sites mostly say it's highly unlikely to conceive on or around your period but alot of mom forums have women who swear they did

Technically you can ovulate while you have your period. If you are one of the rare women that this happens to then yes you can get pregnant. An egg stays in the fallopian tube until fertilization and then it travels into the uterus to implant. I would imagine that if you did happen to ovulate and get pregnant then your body would stopping shedding the uterine lining because it is built up specifically to support implantation. I have not had this happen to me but this is what I know. So yes it is very rare but not impossible.

Of course there could be other reasons why your period stopped too.
