Are you getting period while pregnant

 The truth is you cannot be pregnant and have a period at the same time. Once a woman conceives her body starts producing HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) and her menstrual cycle stops. This is not to say that a woman cannot have bleeding that resembles a period when she is pregnant, but the bleeding is not actually a period. This can be confusing for some and this is why you may know someone that claims to have had a period while she was pregnant.

During early pregnancy, it is not uncommon for a woman to have bleeding or spotting. This bleeding can sometimes be mistaken for a period. Twenty to twenty-five percent of women have bleeding or spotting during pregnancy. The bleeding is generally not as heavy a regular period. However, if a woman did not know that she was pregnant, she may assume the bleeding was just a light period. Often early pregnancy bleeding occurs around the same time a woman anticipates having her period so this can add to the confusion.

    Every time I have mentioned spotting in pregnancies of my miscarriages with my midwife, in attempts to give me hope and not to give up, has told me stories of other women who have bled, often a lot. It just is not me. If I spot, I'm starting to miscarry. Always scary for me even though I have been through it a number of times because each one is different in its own way but the result has been the same - a loss.
