The last time I had unprotected sex was in april. This month I got my period 6 days early (which is unusual). It lasted 6 days like normal but 7 days after my period ended I had bleeding which seemed like a period but only lasted two days. It wasn't as heavy as my usual period but it wasn't real light. I don't have any sypmtoms of pregnacy. My stomach feels bloated, I thought it was because of my period but ive been off for around 3-4 days (i dont know if thats a symptom of pregnacy). I was just wondering if I could be pregnant :?:

Well..In some very rare cases it may happen that you get pregnant and still have periods. So it would be best to go for a pregnancy test.

I agree with you. I may be pregnant too though, however, I have my education and I'm well on my way to college. Too many young girls are getting pregnant. If you aren't ready to bare a child and take on that extremely difficult responsibility then you shouldn't be having sex.

Love,
Jess

Why do you assume she is a young "girl" who isn't ready or capable of taking care of a child? She didn't say she wasn't trying to have a child, just simply asking whether it is a possibility since she had a period. Your broad generalization of her being young and dumb, just because she didn't have protected sex, is ignorant.

A good friend of mine her daughter who is 25 had been gaining some weight so she started taking diet pills to help her lose.After quite sometime on the pills she wasnt losing but still gaining a little here a little there she still had regular periods and everything no symptoms of being pregnant. She finally went to the doctor the other day and found out she was 6 months pregnant she had no idea. So yes you can still be pregnant and have periods you dont hear of it that often but it can happen..The best thing is if you think you are or might be go to your doctor. This is gonna be her third child her first two she had no periods during pregnancy and she had morning sickness this time she has periods and no sickness so I guess ya never know so go see a doctor. :d

Im sorry but being 6 months pregnant and not knowing you are is pretty far from believing. How intune is your friend with her body. How can a person go on without having one single periond for 6 months and ooops she's now preggo. Come on lets get more responsibile with ourselves. Even missing one period shoul alarm you to see a ob/gyn

did you not read the comment
I see all your post are trying to make the person feel bad,one what makes you above making mistakes, stuff happens. 2 you didn't even read this correctly, she did have her period you idiot. so stop posting stuff like that. My teacher who is fat didn't know she was preg till the day before she gave birth, she was and irregular person and she just though she was getting fat.

It's very believable cause my mother didn't know she was 5 months pregnant cause she got her periods and she didn't gain weight until then that's how she found out, I know other people its happened to as well and there is a TV show called I didn't know I was pregnant, so before accusing someone of lying check first!!!

I had my period for my entire pregnancy and didnt find out till I was 11 weeks so actually it can happen not very often but it does I should know I know a lady that had 3 children her periods were normal and 3 days b4 she gave birth she found out she was pregnant and u dont have to be absolutly in-touch with your body not to know sometimes ppl just dont have any symptoms just bcoz it hasn't happened to u doesnt mean it doesnt happen so maybe u should just start believing ppl wen it happens because it does!

Okie, well, you can be pregg, and bleed. Its not called a period when you are pregnant and bleeding, because a period is caused in your monthly cycle, (when your uterine lining sheds and the egg dies, etc)
my mother, had a similar occurence happen, she bled for two days and thought it was her period, later, she found out she was pregnant with my sister.
I suggest a test, if it is negative, but you still think you might be pregnant,there are other alternatives. A blood test from the doctor, perhaps, or, you can ask for an ultrasound to be sure. (sometimes pregnancy tests dont read out like they should, but this is very rare) also, women with abnormal periods have a hard time tracking a pregnancy, I have known myself to go for three or four months without a period, and still not be pregnant.

I don't think finding out you are pregnant a few days before giving birth is hard to believe. I have read a lot of cases like that and have seen people who were pregnant but totally didn't look like it so I do think it could happen and I don't think that people on this site would lie about stuff because they are either here to get answers or they are here to try to help and I just don't think that people would lie about stuff because they wouldn't want people to lie if it were there question.

Yes, it does happen, I am no dr but I had three periods with both of my children(now adults) and they are great, the only way that I realised that I was pregnant is because I started getting real tired my second month, at that point thank goodness we gave up on getting pregnant so I was not on b/c or anything because after being married for a while and my past pregnancy's failed so I just gave up on giving birth or getting pregnant and surprise, what do you know, I was really pregnant successfully 2 times.
The best to you especially those that are ttc!

You need to take a pregnancy test. No one can tell you if you are pregnant. Take a test.
