I know alot of people ask the same question, but i just want to get some insight. So my last somewhat normal period was August 28th, with crazy cramping the first couple of days. IT usually lasts 6-7 days. 1-4 heavy then tappering off to nothing. ( i have been thinking i was pg for a while now, but the hpt's keep coming back neg. Anywho it is now October 13th, I got my period on Oct 9th (obviously later than I should have) and the first day is was lite. The second day is was really red but not as heavy as it usually is...i only went through like 3 tampons the second day (as opposed to changing them like every 1/2 hour like normal--sorry for being graphic). it worrys me that my period only lasted 2 days! it has never done that before. IM not on the pill nor have i been for some time now. I had very mild cramping this month compared to what it normally is, and i have been nauseous all day long for the past few days. and I have been breaking out all over...i don't lke the foods i normally do, just the thought of somethings make me sick, and i've been eating a lot of junk food lately.I've been crazy tired, i can't even make it through my 9-5 work day... I took a few htp's and it looked as if maybe if you hold it just right you can see a line-but i couldn't figure out if it was an evap line even though it came up within the time limit(but it was extremely faint and soon disappeared) I just don't know if it is possible to maybe be pregnant, if you can have signs like this and no be. IDK. I just wanted to get some insight. Thanks in advance.! ↓

First, it's not possible to be pregnant if you are menstruating. Menstruation is the physical release of the uterine lining, in which an egg embeds itself and is required during early pregnancy.

Secondly, you can trust HPT tests to be pretty accurate. IF your period is late, however, you can get confirmation of a pregnancy by going to your doctor's office and asking for a blood based test.

It actually IS possible to have your period and still be pregnant, just as long as it's not a heavy period. Your body is continuously building up the lining of your uterus and a little bleeding doesn't hurt. But like you said, a blood test is ultimate diagnosis.
