Hello and thank you in advance to all who try to help =)

I had my tubes tied after my last pregnancy (17 months ago) and since then I have not paid much attention to what day of the month my period starts. I do know I had my period in February (my guess is I started on the 14th or 21st - it was a Sat. and towards the later part of the month) and it's now going on April and I have not had a period. I know it's very unlikely that I could get pregnant after having my tubes tied BUT I conceived my three boys extremely easily. I'm just a fertile mertile ;) So, I do not doubt my bodies ability to get pregnant. I did take a pregnancy test last thursday (March 26) and it was negative. I don't currently have health insurance, if I did I would just make an appt to see my Doctor. What are your thoughts? Think I could be pregnant? FYI my periods are never late. If anything they come early and they last abour 7-8 days (ugh!!).

Thanks!!

P.S. If I were indeed pregnant would I get a positive pregnancy test if it was an ectopic pregnancy?

I went to the doctor last week and she said everything was fine, but I'm still having discomfort in my stomach. So, ny primary doctor referred me to a gastro specialist to look into it further. My stomach is still expanding and I'm gaining 1 to 2 lbs. a week. I will keep everyone posted on the results. God Bless.

I'm sorry but I had a period first 3 months with my first son. Just spotting but still. My last two boys I bleed like a normal period. I was told by Dr my body was trying to abort. So go home put my legs up. This went on for about a week. So yes yes u can still bleed and be pregnant. Further more on another of my preg I woke up blood gushing every were I was only 2 moths oreg. They said I misscaried. 3 months later found out I was 6 months pregnant and lost a twin.

Hi Barbara

Women can certainly bleed in pregnancy - but it's not a menstrual period. 

Best,

Susan

Hello Anonymous,

If you are having your period, you are not pregnant. I cannot explain the positive pregnancy test result. If you have any further questions or concerns. please contact your gynecologist.

Regards,
Maryann

I was 3 months pregnant and was still on my period so it is possible to have your period and be pregnant.

I think I might have had an epiphany! I got my tubes tied in 2012, after I had my 4th child : 42 years old. I immediately thought I could have unprotected sex with my husband whenever the mood struck. I tend to follow my flow, and I have never been so messed up in my entire life! Firstly, I am extraordinarily fertile! I have been in and out of my obgyenough. I keep being advised to take birth control. I don't want that crap. Every time we have sex, the following 2 months are sheer hell! I gain significant amount of weight. I have all the early pregnancy woes, irregular bleeding, then I miss, then it's 30 days of bleeding. I believe my body believes it's about to be pregnant and has a chemical reaction! I am barely able to pick my head off my pillow! I told my husband that we need to go back to condoms again because I feel that the ejaculate is the cause of all my issues!
