Linea nigra line and my period

Me and my boyfriend had sex on the 29th of dec. He had put his finger up in me and then we had sex after. Soon as we finished he asked me was my period starting or anything like that and I asked him why, he said because I was bleeding, but I told him no. It was just for that moment and now I have that line going down my stomach to my belly button. I never had that line before now even when I was pregnant with my daughter. Now my period just came today but its not as heavy as it usually is, I guess because its just starting. But my question is can you get that line and still have your period and if so what does that line mean?!

Hi Anon,

If you are sure it's your period. Then most likely, you are not pregnant.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  The black line, usually appear on most women during their second trimester. The increasing hormones in a pregnant woman, causes all these changes on the skin and hair.  If you had unprotected sex with your boyfriend, you might want to take a pregnancy test or see a doctor for blood work.

Yeah I was about to do a pregnancy test, but then my period came so I was like there is no way I'm prego, but I still have that line on my stomach. And the funny thing is I didn't have it with my daughter. So do you feel I should still do a test even though my period came, can you be pergnant and still have your period or can you not be pregnant and still have the line on your stomach
