It is possible. Did your period last the same number of days that it always lasts or was it short? Some women have stated that they experienced a short period the first month of their pregnancies.

It lasted 5 days which is normal and the flow was the same as usual. I am very confused?

I visited about a half a dozen websites and came up with these causes of false positive pregnancy test results:

- HCG shots for fertility treatment or weight loss (Pregnancy tests work by detecting HCG, the pregnancy hormone.)

- soaps or detergents (That is why pregnancy tests now have women urinate directly on the stick instead of urinating in a cup and submerging the stick in the cup.)

- Medications: anticonvulsives, Parkinson's disease medications, tranquilizers, certain diuretics, methadone, promethazine

- Trophoblastice tumors grown in a woman's reproductive system or germ cell tumors on the ovaries

- hysterical/ false pregnancy (which occurs when a woman wants a baby so badly that her body mimics the signs of pregnancy)

- Leaving the test for too long (It is very important that you follow the directions TO THE LETTER. If you leave a pregnancy test sitting for an hour and go back to check it, it WILL show positive.)

- uterine, breast, or ovarian cancer

- expired or defective pregnancy test

- evaporation lines (if the the positive line is barely visible)

- chemical pregnancy/ early miscarriage

Thank u for researching for me.
Sadly i started bleeding again today and visited an emergency doctor who confirmed i have had an early miscarriage.
He also said it can be possible to have a period in early pregnancy so that explains my period and positive test.

I wish I knew enough about this to give you some comforting advice, jwheeldon, but I don't. I have never expereinced this. I have only heard that many women experience a period the first month of their pregnancy, usually before they even know thay are pregnant. But it is very rare to bleed for the duration of the pregnancy. I suggest that you listen to your doctor and try not to stress over this too much.
Good luck.

heavy period while pregnant
Please someone help me too... I am so confused...
I last had sex 8 weeks ago (approx) and then a week or two after had a 'period'. It was heavier than my normal periods are, so i was a little surprised, but it had arrived on time, and lasted the usual full length of time my period does, so thought no more of it.
Then 28 days later, when i was due on for a second time, it didnt arrive...
So when i was about a week or so late, i took a test. It was positive.
So i took another test, one that tells you how far along you are, it came up positive and that i was 5 weeks plus+ pregnant as a doctor would date me...
Thing is, I havent had any sex since BEFORE the heavy period, so i had to be pregnant then as i am now!
How can this be?? Everything I've read says this cant happen, and that any bleeding around the time you would expect your period would be lighter than usual, or spotting... this just isnt the case!
Please if anyone can advise me, or if anyone has had any similar experience please respond!
My doctor just sent me away saying dont worry and wait until the scan, but this is too long for me to be thinking and worrying!

what happened at the scan... :_(
i went for the scan and they told me the baby is too small, and no heartbeat probably died at 6 weeks am devastated. its called a missed miscarriage.
i have to go back in a weeks time to talk about options, but i cant bare any of this, i am so upset. i miss my baby so much already. :_( x

Hi, today I tested positive, what confuses me though is that I did get my period last month, it came 3 days early and only lasted 3 days and was heavy (clots)....11 days later (today) I started spotting, pinkish / darkish, nothing heavy. Although my test read positive today, is it possible to have a heavy period like I had last month and go on to have a healthy pregnancy?
Please advise......hopeful.
