Possible period while pregnant?

I am 4.5 wks pregnant and I started to bleed like my normal period, went to the doctor and my cervix is closed and tests say that I am still pregnant. I have not had any pain what so ever. Is it possible to have a period and be pregnant?

Hi Yes some times a woman does have a period.But it is usally not that heavy.My daughter had another period when she found out she was pregnant.She went to the doctor just like you did,and he said that it was normal.He told her not be up and active though.I hope yours gave you the same advice.Take care of your self and the little bundle of joy you are carrying.TNT406

From what I understand the reason you may still get your period early in pregnancy is that although your progesterone is rising, it hasn't risen enough to completely suppress your period.  I agree with the first poster that it should be a lighter than usual period.  You should let your dr know, but as long as the bleeding is not too heavy and you're not having pain then everything is probably ok.

When I was pregnant with my son, I had a small period (I know I missed my first period and that's how I knew I was pregnant, so it must have been the 2nd of 3rd one, but definitely not later than that)- but it was sort of more a pinkish than a red, and pretty light.

Just to give all you ladies some reassurance here, it is possible that anyone who is experiencing any pregnancy symptoms to be pregnant even if you are still experiencing a menstrual period. The reason why pregnancy tests read as negative when a woman is pregnant (if it turns out she is pregnant whether she knows it or not), is because the HCG levels are low. I've heard of actual cases where women took pregnancy tests where they later discovered they were pregnant all along and it showed up as reading negative, even a case of a woman who did an experiment of trying a test one week prior to the delivery of her baby and that showed up negative because her HCG levels were low. The best way to confirm if you are pregnant is by taking a blood test at the hospital or a clinic to confirm it. If that fails to confirm that you are (I have heard of cases where a blood test isn't 100% reliable), then get a sonogram done to see if there is a fetus there. I'm amazed at the TV show "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant", the episodes that feature particularly the women who had their full-on menstrual periods (3-5 days or however long a normal cycle is, each woman's cycle varies), and the woman who was slightly overweight who didn't know at all that she was pregnant until the day she gave birth (and she was getting her regular periods throughout her pregnancy and was even on her period the day she gave birth!). I personally know of 2  friends who had their REGULAR monthly periods during the first 3 months of their pregnancies. They both didn't even have a clue that they were pregnant because having their full, normal monthly periods made them not even suspect it. The only reason they found out is because they were easily getting tired and were told by friends and/or family that they looked pregnant although they weren't yet showing. Sure enough they went in for a blood test and that confirmed it for them. They each delivered a healthy baby boy, one of them being born yesterday afternoon. So there you have it! It sometimes just happens that a women gets a period while pregnant whether she knows she's pregnant or not. And none of you are crazy at all, you know your body better than anyone else. And for anyone being critical about this subject in this forum, please think before you criticize, you wouldn't really know unless it happened to you.

So I know its been awhile since this has been posted but I was bleeding way before I found out I was pregnant and to this day I'm 9 weeks and still bleeding. I'm just wondering is it normal to have cramps like you did before you were pregnant and on your period. I went to the er and my cervix is closed still and she didn't see any sign of miscarriage but I'm just concerned about all the bleeding even my doctor doesnt know.

Hi there.  It's possible to bleed while pregnant but it is very rare to not get a positive pregnancy test if you are.  Unless you've tested too early.  Otherwise, the tests are very accurate.  good luck dear
