Question: feeling nasious while on Period, Can I B Preg.?

 Nisi - Fri Jan 21, 2005 3:03 am

I have heard from different people that you can still get pregnant even if your on your period... My situation is my boyfriend and i had sexual intercourse and he pulled out a little too late, i took a test like 2 days after and it said that it was negative, well i started my period a week later and im starting to feel nausious, i never feel nausious when im on my period. Could it be posible that i am pregnant?? Can i take a test while i am on my period or should i wait till after i am done and if so then how long after should i wait so i can take a test. I don't know what to do im only 19 and scared.

I'm not a doctor, but just thought I would reply since both times I got pregnant I was on my period, thinking "what are the chances?". Also, you can't take a pregnancy test until 3-5 days before your missed period. Hope this helps.
