Is it common to have periods while pregnant?

I had a positive pregnancy test and yet still got a period.

Although this does not happen for the majority of women, many women have continued to have regular periods throughout pregnancy with no complications. This was the case for my sister-in-law for all three of her children. Be sure to contact your OB/GYN or midwife to get confirmation of your pregnancy and perhaps an ultrsound to confirm your pregnancy's viability.

No, it is not common to still have your period while pregnant. Bleeding or spotting during pregnancy may be a cause for concern. There are some woman who do have some bleeding yet everything is fine,


Answer by  sillymomof2 (26)

It's not unheard of to have a light period the first month, or even the first two months in rare cases, after a positive pregnancy test. However, if you have bleeding that is heavier than usual or continues beyond the first month of pregnancy, then you should call your doctor's office immediately.

It is pretty common to have some bleeding at the beginning of pregnancy. Anything from changes in hormone levels to implantation can cause it, but isn't a true period.

No! It does happen sometimes, but I would suggest that you go to your OBGYN and get a check up. It is probably nothing but better safe than sorry!

If you are pregnant you should have no periods. Any bleeding during your pregnancy is hazardous to the baby and the mother and needs to be urgently investigated. If this is the first or second trimester it could mean an impending abortion. Later on it could mean a placental problem.

No, if you are really pregnant there is no chance to have a period again,the first symptom of being pregnant is the stopping of monthly period.

I wouldn't say it is common but it definitely happens. Don't worry and think that you are the only one out there. Your periods may continue on through your pregnancy or they may eventually stop. Consult your doctor if you are worried, but I know quite a few women that this has occured with.

Your best bet is to see a doctor and have a blood test to cnfirm pregnancy. It is possible to still have a period but doesn't happen often.
