Welcome to ehealthforum,
Few women tend to have period like bleeding during expected period time during first few months of pregnancy which is also known as Decidual bleeding. If you are pregnant, it is possible that you had decidual bleeding during these times. If the symptoms are persistent, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy is confirmed, consider getting serial HCG levels estimation done to see if pregnancy is going on smoothly. An ultrasound scan done will also help to know the gestational age and viability. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance.
Take care.
