Can I Still Get A Period When I’m Pregnant?

 Am I Pregnant

What’s Happening?

You’ve taken the home pregnancy test and it came back positive.

And you’re not quite sure what to think or how to feel.

It all seems overwhelming.

Then to top it off you’re still bleeding.

Maybe you’re confused.  Do you tell your boyfriend, mom or friends?

Maybe you are feeling relief because you think—I’m not pregnant after all!

Most of all you’re probably wondering what is going on with your body.

First, take a deep breath. Okay. Now let’s talk about what might be going on, because yes, it is possible to be pregnant and have a period. But that may or may not be what is happening.

Conception Just Before Your Period

If you have a short menstrual cycle, it could be that you didn’t get pregnant until just a few days before your period started. What this means is the egg takes time to reach the uterine lining. This could cause your body to be fooled—thinking it should still produce the hormones that cause your period. What then happens is you still have a light period and could potentially not even notice you were pregnant for up to six weeks!

It happens.

It Might Not Be A Period

There are also other ways that you can still bleed during pregnancy that aren’t a result of menstruation. Cervical changes, infection, and implantation can all make you think you are having a period, when you are actually pregnant.

Another way you can bleed during pregnancy is miscarriage. If this happens you need to see a medical professional right away.
