Me and my girlfriend had sex at the begining of october and her period comes at the end of the month. So she got her period at the end of october not late or anything. The thing is she has been having chese pain wich I hear is a early sign of pregnancy. We only did it once at the begining of october and we used protection. Do you think she can be pregnant even if she had her period and is having chese pain?Question

First of all, u should look for other signs. But if ur truly worried get a urine test (u can get them for around $1 at a dollar store). And they can show false negs sometimes so maybe a blood test from the doc. Its not extremely common, but yes u can have ur period while preg. I knew a girl once that it it for the first 2 months.

I apologize, billy12, for being an idiot, but what is "chese" pain? The first thing that popped into my head is chest pain, which I have never heard of as being a symptom of pregnancy.

As for the whole periods in pregnancy thing...It's definitely not common, but it can happen in some cases. But there's noticeable differences in the flow...It could be a lot lighter than usual, or be more mucous than blood. Cramps may disappear. Granted I am not sure how a woman could have a full-blown period during pregnancy, seeing as the menstrual cycle is a shedding of the lining of the uterus, and if you shed that lining when an embryo has implanted in it, it's going to go "bye-bye" with the lining.

Consider this question (forgive me for being a bit rude and personal): is your girlfriend usually a light "bleeder"? If so, then a change in flow may be hard to notice. But if she bleeds moderately to heavily, then you'll definitely be able to tell what's going on.

Ask her if her period, though on time, was lighter, or if she noticed any changes in it.

....................

A final thought...If she's experiencing any pelvic/ovarian pain out of nowhere, don't automatically assume pregnancy - it could be something like endometriosis or ovarian cysts.

............

Keep this in mind: some women may experience every symptom of pregnancy known to man and not be pregnant, and others may feel no changes and be pregnant.

As someone said, the only way to find out is a test. The urine tests are not always reliable, but blood tests are foolproof. You can either ask her doctor or try and find a family planning clinic in your area to do confidential blood tests for her.

..............

Best of luck to you and your girlfriend, and I hope things work out in your favor.

My friend is pregnant and still getting her period and I read that a woman was pregnant with twin and still had her period the whole time. She don't have any cramps when she gets it and it is pink and not the normal flow. It is also has a lot of discharge in it ( sorry if I grossed you out). Here is what the woman told me:
"yes I was 12 weeks pregnant with twins and still had my period and my mother was on her period the whole time she was pregnant with my little brother. So yes it is possible. "

period while preganant
Scaredbaka, you make interesting points in your post however, a woman can have her period AND shed her lining (not the baby per se) while being pregnant. I know because it happened to me. My obstetrician explained that it's your body's way of cleaning out the uterus/womb in preparation of the 9 month occupancy of your baby. So yes, it can happen. By the way, did you get an answer on what "chese" is?..too funny..go figure!
