Typically not: If you are really 5.5 months pregnant, you should feel the baby move. While it is rare, occasionally there are women who experience menstrual period like bleeding throughout their entire pregnancy. More often than that, women may have one, two or three menses into their pregnancies. A home pregnancy test would tell you if you are pregnant at all.

Not during: If it's a normal period, ovulation won't occur until about 14 days after the onset of the period. The fertilized egg can't implant in the uterus during a normal period. With an ectopic pregnancy it's possible to have vaginal bleeding however.

A 17-year-old female asked:

Can you still be a month pregnant even if you get your period?

No not real period: Some women after conceiving will have less than usual bleeding around the time of the missed period. This bleeding is called implantation bleeding and can occur as the embryo is growing into the lining of the uterus. This bleeding isn't a true period, though sometimes people will think it is, and that can be confusing.
