I'm on my period but having all the signs of pregnancy. Hot flashes, cravings, cramping more than usual, and bumps. Could i be pregnant?

I'm on my period but having all the signs of pregnancy. Hot flashes, cravings, cramping more than usual, and bumps. Could i be pregnant?

No, if a true period: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An ob-gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more
