Can A Woman Be Pregnant And Still See Her Period
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
See below: Up to 30% of pregnant women will bleed vaginally at the time of their next expected period due to implantation bleeding (when the baby attaches to the womb). This can be confusing. If they know they're pregnant they might think they're miscarrying. If they don't know they're pregnant, they won't think to check. ...Read more
Light Bleeding: Rest assured that in the early weeks of pregnancy, a little spotting or bleeding is very common. The most common cause for experiencing a brown discharge during pregnancy, especially in the later half of the first trimester, is that the body is getting rid of the older blood remnants in the cervix. As the baby grows, the original blood which is used to protect the womb is no longer required. ...Read more
Yes. See REI if TTC: No periods means you're not ovulating (releasing an egg) each month. If you're not trying to conceive you should still use birth control as you may still be fertile, and you can go from no period to prego without a recent period. If trying to conceive see a reproductive endocrinology and infertility (rei) specialist to find out why you're irregular and for treatment to help you get pregnant. ...Read more
What are the odds/chances/percentage of a woman not ovulating but still gets a period? I was irregular for years. Now I'm normal but can't get pregnant
See a Gynecologist:
To diagnose an anovulatory period a gynecologist might have you do temperature measurements to determine if you show the temperature spike associated with ovulation. If not then you will need a detailed workup to look for the cause and devise a treatment. Possible causes include polycystic ovary syndrome, hypothalamic dysfunction, perimenopause,
thyroid disorders. ...Read more
I have read that a woman could still be pregnant even though she gets a late period. What is the likelihood of this?
No: A woman who gets pregnant can see her regular period about a month or more later if she miscarries very early in her pregnancy (of course, she would no longer be pregnant at the time of seeing her regular period). Otherwise, she won't see her normal regular period until about 1-2 months after she finishes her pregnancy. ...Read more

Can a 48 year old woman who still has a period get pregnant? We had sex on the day when she would have been ovulating when she was younger
I agree with dr fowler that the chance of pregnancy is extremely unlikely. Women 48 and older have occasionally gotten pregnant but the pregnancy rate for this age group is less than 0.5 pregnancies per 1000 women per year. Menopause (the time when there are essentially no more eggs coming out of the ovaries) occurs on average at age 51.
I am not sure if this is good news or bad news. Best wishes. ...Read more

If a woman have unprotected sex a day before her period, and then the period comes, can she still get pregnant even though the egg has passed?
Pregnancy: When a normal menstrual period occurs the lining of the uterus sheds and thus implantation of a fertilized egg cannot occur. However, spotting only without a normal period can be a early sign of implantation of a fertilized egg. And so, if the period flow was not over a period of days I would recommend pregnancy testing by your family physician. ...Read more
