Hi I was wondering could I be pregnant. My periods always come on time and never was irregular. Suddenly I am 3 days late. cramps on/off again and today I go to the bathroom and wipe and see light red blood. What do too think is happening. Is it my cycle that could be coming or could I be pregnant. HELP. thanks

Give yourself a week, and then re-test. When I was pregnant with my twins, I bled for 3-4 days, almost like a normal period for me, during the first month of pregnancy. It wasn't a period, it was what is called "break through" bleeding, which can happen when the egg implants in the uterine wall. I don't know that you would be sick so quickly, though it is possible.
Good luck.

I am a labor and delivery nurse and would suggest that it sounds as though you caught whatever cootie your boyfriend had. However, when it comes to a newly forming baby you can't be too cautious. I think it warrants a blood test from your MD for a definitive answer and peace of mind.

Well, it sounds like you could have caught whatever stomach bug your boyfriend had. It is possible you could be pregnant though and still bleed. It is likely it wouldn't be heavy bleeding though. Personally, I didn't bleed at all throughout my first two pregnancies and only spotted for two days with my third.

Maybe wait and see if your symptoms get better. You could wait a couple of weeks and test again or maybe try to get in to see your doctor for a blood test.

You don't bleed old blood when your pregnant, but you do after a miscarriage.

If you happen to have irregular monthly periods, bleeding can happen even at pregnancy. To be sure, and for your own peace of mind, might as well get tested. As for your boyfriend, he must either have ate something that didn't agree with his system or he had the 24-hr flu bug.

Wait a couple of weeks and test again. It just sounds like you had an unusual period which can happen. BTW what does your boyfriend vomiting have to do with you being pregnant? Just curious about that!!!

As a veteran mother of 5 pregnancies, I can tell you that for various reasons some women can and will bleed during a pregnancies. Some a little (and from talking to friends) others alot. I can also tell you that from personal experience, some women, myself included, do not show up pregnant when others do because of hormone issues. It takes me about 8 weeks to show up pregnant especially with a urine test. If your worried go get a blood test. It will probably show up sooner. Good Luck.

You probably aren't pregnant but it is not unheard of to bleed while pregnant and the baby be okay. I would test again in about a week and if it is negative then that is your answer. Your body does go through changes and your cycle does change sometime. I know mine does. Good luck!

Yes, I am currently 9 weeks, and bled the first 2 or 3 weeks. I have a subcoriatal hemmorhage, so it may not be a period. Book an appointment.
