Is it possible to be pregnant even though I got my period?

Is it possible to be pregnant even though I got my period?

No: If you had a menstrual period, you are not pregnant. On the other hand, it is possible to be pregnant and have vaginal bleeding that may seem like a period. For example, loss of an early pregnancy will cause bleeding. More worrisome is the possibility of bleeding from an ectopic pregnancy. If it's possible you are pregnant, see your doctor right away. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

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

Is it possible to be pregnant and still have my period?

Is it possible to be pregnant and still have my period?

Menses and Pregnancy: I have had many women tell me that they knew someone who had menses during pregnancy. I stopped OB in 1994 after 16 yrs and never had a patient with menses during pregnancy. I think any bleeding can be called menses by some. A real menses is bleeding caused by a normal cycle without pregnancy. So technically, you cannot have menses while pregnant. Bleeding deserves an evaluation whatever the name. ...Read more

Is it possible that even though the htp came out negative that i could still be pregnant? I should've got my period yesterday

Is it possible that even though the htp came out negative that i could still be pregnant? I should've got my period yesterday

Repeat 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. Start birth control to present these scares in the future. ...Read more

Is it possible to become pregnant without actually having sex? I haven't had my period this month Is it possible to get pregnant from just dry humping

No: You cannot become pregnant while dry humping. Please be safe and also find a good doctor who can explain STD's and need for birth control if you sexually active. Be good to yourself. Don't let a boy talk you into something you are not ready for. Having sex is a big burden and can make you feel scared and guilty. Find an adult you trust whom you can talk to.

Is it possible to miscarry before I have implantation? It definitely was not period. But I just have that feeling that I conceived.

Is it possible to miscarry before I have implantation? It definitely was not period. But I just have that feeling that I conceived.

Not exactly...: If you haven't implanted, you're not "carrying". If you're not "carrying", you can't "miscarry". There are likely many fertilized eggs that don't successfully implant. If they don't implant at all, there are no positive pregnancy tests. If embryos implant and then die, there may be transient positive pregnancy tests. That may be the case when an early positive test turns negative a few days later. ...Read more

Is it possible to be pregnant,  and have the implanon,  but still get a period?

Possible, not likely: Implanon is not 100% effective in preventing pregnancy, so you could be pregnant. As far as a period, it would not be expected during pregnancy, but first trimester bleeding can be misinterpreted as a period in such cases. Check a home pregnancy test asap and see your gynecologist to find out what is going on. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and best of luck! ...Read more

Can i still be pregnant? Even though i got my period?

Possible: While it is possible to get your period early in pregnancy, most of the time you will stop having periods once you're pregnant. A home pregnancy test can function as a screen. If you're trying to get pregnant, be sure you're taking a women's multivitamin, eating healthy and engaging in moderate exercise. Minimize alcohol and stop drinking completely if you are pregnant. ...Read more

Sometimes: 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

Is it possible to be pregnant even if urine tests at home and in the doctor's office do not detect hcg? I had an abnormal period (shorter, lighter, stopping and starting) at the end of march, and since it began have been dizzy, nauseated, and bloated.  Al

Hello. : Hello. Often a physician orders a serum pregnancy test (blood). This can not only detect pregnancy but can also detect the amount of HCG in the blood (if is a quantitative test). A pregnancy test can fail to show positive if their isn't a high enough HCG level to trigger it. Standard home pregnancy tests are done at the time the woman misses her period or thereafter. There are also early home pregnancy tests which can be done sooner. However, if a week has passed since the possible missed period, and the pregnancy test still shows a negative, that is likely to be accurate. ...Read more
