If I Started My Period Can I Still Be Pregnant
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

I had my period last week this week after having intercourse i started to bleed and am now cramping as if i was to get it again could i be pregnant?
Low risk time: If you were truly on your period and not around the time of ovulation then pregnancy is low risk. Timing intercourse around menstrual cycles and ovulation has a very high failure rate. Use over the counter Plan B if intercourse was within 72 hours to decrease the risk of unplanned pregnancy. Start birth control and use condoms to avoid these scares in the future. ...Read more

Can you have your period while you're pregnant? i thought i was because it hadn't started, now i have started im worried. i have two hpt not taken yet
No, not at that time: A woman cannot get her normal regular period and be pregnant at the same time. However, she can get pregnant a week or two after her normal period.

I took a hpt and it came back positive the next day i started my period can I still be pregnant? My period was medium flow with less cramps then norm
Yes: It is still possible. You can have varying degrees of bleeding early in pregnancy and still be pregnant. One thing to always be concerned about is an ectopic or tubal pregnancy, but without pain, it is unlikely at this stage. It is also certainly possible that you had a spontaneous loss. Recommend following up with your doctor. ...Read more

Unprotected sex: If you have your period, which is normal for you, then you are not pregnant. If you bleed, but it's a lighter bleeding and usually shorter than your normal period, do a pregnancy test to rule it out. If you miss your period, then do a pregnancy test, too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Often implantation bleeding, when the embryo attaches to the uterine wall, can cause bleeding that can be similar to a period. Implantation bleeding is usually lighter or shorter, but not always. If there is any question about it, do a urine home pregnancy test. They turn positive 10-14 days after conception, right around the time the period is due. Use first morning urine for best accuracy. ...Read more
If testing too early: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

Unlikely: With a negative test and bleeding, you are not likely to be pregnant. It is likely that you had spontaneous loss of an early pregnancy, which is not uncommon.
