Not your period: If you are pregnant , you can have bleeding when a period was to be expected on occasion , but that is not considered your period, if you have any questions, your OB can do a blood preg test and get the answer back that day or the next and do an exam and ultrasound, that is what I do with my patients in coral springs , florida.

See your doctor: Being pregnant and still getting your period is rare, but it does happen. Seek medical attention to make sure your pregnacy is normal and that you are not miscarrying, have infection or problems with the position of your placenta. Your doctor will order testing, like an ultrasound to get some answers for you.
