Even : Even though it is unusual for a woman to have a period while pregnant, it is not unheard of. If you think you might be pregnant, the only way to know is to take a test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed or abnormal period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. Good luck!

HPT: Well, the last 3 months of symptoms would not be attributable to pregnancy if you have been having periods. Take a home pregnancy test to know for sure.
