Question: can you have period and be pregnant?

 blondie01 - Sun Oct 03, 2004 7:05 pm

I had a normal period (not spotting), everything about it was normal, color, time, how long it lasted, amount, signs, everything. I don't have any signs of pregnancy but I wanted to be sure.

User avatar Hi blondie,
It's certainly not unheard of to have a period and still be pregnant. However, generally speaking, there is usually something different about the cycle (amount, duration, etc.) Hope this helps :)

as a correction to the above message, (what may appear to be a period or a menstrual cycle)
