    Can you be pregnant and still have period like bleeding?
    For the past 2 weeks, I've really been thinking I'm pregnant. Ive had a lot of symptoms. Yesterdya, I started my "period" a day early. And I woke up this morning, and I felt my tampon leaking, but it wasn't blood, it was clear and watery. And there wasn't much blood on the tampon. But then it started to pick up a bit, more like my normal period. So I thought, that I wasn't pregnant. But all my symptoms are still happening, and actually getting worse. Usually with my period, I only have three symptoms, bloating, breast tenderness, and I'm a little extra hungry, but they go away when I start my period. And all these new symptoms going strong. Even my areolas are getting darker and bigger.
    But is it possible to have bleeding that's so much like your normal period?
    I asked my mom, and she had her period for 4 months while pregnant.

    So, I don't really know what to think. Im having all the symptoms... just having my "period" too. And I think its too much to be implantation bleeding. But anyway.. Please tell me what you think. I hate not knowing.

    Everyone's different, my first pregncy I continued to have my period for a few months I also thought something was wrong but everyitng was fine. But do tell your DOC just so she can check you out.Call your doc nurse shell tell you what to do.

    Best of luck,
    My prayers will be with you,

    If you don't know for sure whether you are pregnant, try a pregnancy test. Although it isn't an actual period, some women do have some bleeding in early pregnancy, a few for most of their pregnancy.
    Any bleeding in pregnancy should be checked out. But of course first you need to find out if you are actually pregnant or if it may just be an off cycle.

    Please someone help me! I am so confused...
    I last had sex 8 weeks ago (approx) and then a week or two after had a 'period'. It was heavier than my normal periods are, so I was a little surprised, but it had arrived on time, and lasted the usual full length of time my period does, so thought no more of it.
    Then 28 days later, when I was due on for a second time, it didn't arrive...
    So when I was about a week or so late, I took a test. It was positive.
    So I took another test, one that tells you how far along you are, it came up positive and that I was 5 weeks plus+ pregnant as a doctor would date me...
    Thing is, I haven't had any sex since BEFORE the heavy period, so I had to be pregnant then as I am now!
    How can this be? Everything I've read says this can't happen, and that any bleeding around the time you would expect your period would be lighter than usual, or spotting... this just isn't the case!
    Please if anyone can advise me, or if anyone has had any similar experience please respond!
    My doctor just sent me away saying don't worry and wait until the scan, but this is too long for me to be thinking and worrying!

    Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex on April 5th, about 2-3 days after I got what I thought was my "period" but my peroid doesn't start until the 16th. Its now May 9th and I started my "period" on the 7th. My boyfriend came inside of me when we had unprotected sex on the 5th of April. I want to know if I'm pregnant or not. Can someone please help me. Am I pregnant or not pregnant. I haven't taken a test yet because he doesn't want me to and neither do I. So can come please help me.

    The only way you will know for certain if you are pregnant or not would be to test positive on a pregnancy test. So far is this period having the usual amount of flow as you normally do? Your cycles may have changed up a bit on you if you had a period about April 7 and now you have started another one about the same time for May.

    If you are concerned, try a pregnancy test. It seems more that your periods have just shifted the schedule a bit, but see what happens with this period.

    So, I tested positive on a pregnancy test about a week and a half ago. I am currently 5 weeks and 4 days pregnant with #2. 2 days ago I started spotting, and then it got heavier. I went to the doctor to have a blood test, and everything came out positive for being pregnant. But yesterday and today the bleeding has gotten heavier, more like a period, with cramping. Also, I feel like my pregnancy symptoms that I had last week have all of the suddenly gone away. It's confusing because with my first child I did have morning sickness for one week, and then miraculously it was gone after that and never came back, but I can't help but think that perhaps I had a miscarriage this time around?. as I had absolutely zero bleeding with baby #1.. but then again every pregnancy is different. The doctor says only time can tell and that I need to do a blood test every 2 days (2 more times) to make sure the pregnancy hormone level is rising (it should double every 2 days). I did my second one today and will go in for the third one in 2 more days. I know that all there is to do right now is wait, but it is very hard to not know 'for sure'. There are lots of sleepless nights, and it makes it even harder with a toddler running around.

    Hmmm, very interesting one. I was feeling pregnant for a long time however none of the tests were showing positive and I was still getting my period. It wasn't until only 3 weeks ago that my period stopped and I am now shoing positive on a urine test. I have my scan on Tuesday to find out how far, going to be interesting to say the least. I have a feeling that I am going to be a lot further along than the 5 weeks they are telling me!!
