i'm not sure i understand you're question.  Are you saying that you're pregnant now and your bleeding alot or are you asking if pregnant women can have heavy periods?  If you're pregnant now, then you shouldn't be bleeding as much as you would for a normal period.  If you are, then call your doctor or go to a local emergency room.  Sometimes pregnant women can spot during the first trimester, but should not be bleeding heavily.  hope this helps.

I know you have been trying to get pregnant this month but if you are bleeding a heavy flow it sounds like an early period to me.

One thing that I would like to add and it isn't something pleasant so either way I think you need to go to your doctor or emergency center as soon as you can.  I used to always be very regular with my periods so on the first occasion that I got my period almost two weeks before I should have and like two weeks after I last had it, I worried and took a HPT straight away and it was a BFP but I had an ectopic pregnancy and if you don't get treatment quickly you could be in trouble, I hate to scare you but it's a scary situation if you don't get it seen to fast.

Then the time afterwards, I knew I was pregnant and got a heavy flow which landed up being a M/C.

That all been said, I have heard women to have periods right through their pregnancy but it is NEVER as heavy as your normal period.

If you think you might be pregnant, take a HPT and if it is BFP get help, either way call your doctor.

Just get advice from a professional.

Sorry sweetie and good luck.

You said in your previous post that AF was due on Tues or Wed, but showed up yesterday. That's a little early, but certainly not a cause for concern. I think I read in another post that your AF's are irregular, so my guess is that's all it is.

My period started 5 days late just spotting then heavy flow came but its brown.  I don't know what to think anymore.  My husband and I have been trying to get preg. for a while and taking Clomiphene 50 mg.  Is there anything I can do to increase my chances of getting pregnant?

Everyone on here seems to be confused on this topic. My experiences are: I had spotting throughout the first 3 months of my pregnancy and had to take it very easy. By spotting I mean I could see dark blood when I wiped and not really anything else.
My second pregnancy i was a week late and had all the nausea and other symptoms of being pregnant but was spotting for 3 days so I got the hpt and it was bfp. Then a few days later I started bleeding and didn't want to believe I was mc ing so I went to the ER and it was true, my hormones and ultra sound showed that i had indeed mc but I guess i needed it confirmed. (I bled for 2 days but it was sporatic so I kept telling myself that i was still prenant since I only bled heavy for a little while then started spotting again and it would go back and forth.)
If their are clots and heavy red blood then that is truely a mc. You should always go to ER if pregnant and bleeding because they need to see if the mc is complete and or if it is an etopic pregnancy. (sometimes people can be pregnant with twins and lose only one as well)

I came off the pill last month to ttc and have had unprotected sex several times, however i had a car accident on the 5th october and the doctors had done a blood test to see if i was pregnant and it came up negative.  However, i was 7 days late (i thought that could have been the case anyway as it was my first real period since coming off the pill and since coming off the pill i have been getting cramps and sore nipples) but my period only lasted 2 days and it started of pink and the period then got really heavy and then suddenly stopped after 2 days (prior to the 2 day period my whole boob and nipples where extremely, unexplainably sore unlike usual) Could this be that i am pregnant?? or just symptoms of coming off the pill?? and how soon can i do a pregnancy test?? since i only had the 2 day heavy bleed on friday.

If there are 2 lines you are pregnant. It doesn't matter how dark the lines are. You should probably go to a dr and tell them what is going on and they can confirm your pregnancy and if you are having a lot of cramping and bleeding you definitely need to be seen.
