Can I be pregnant even though I had a period

I had my period June 3rd-7th. When it first started I was spotting a pink color and then it completely stopped. The next day it started bleeding but it wasn't heavy or dark like usual. It had a bright pink tint to it whenever i wiped. Then it stopped. Then i went back to light pink spotting and I have been spotting for 3 days. Then I had sex with my boyfriend and I started bleeding then it stopped. Then I had sex again the next day & the day after and both times I started spotting the pink tint after sex. I experience occasional light cramping. And my boobs are slightly sore. I'm occasionally light headed. I don't know what is going on that never happened to me before. I had unprotected sex through my fertile days in May and even days before my period started. My body just doesn't feel right. I took a pregnancy test 2 days ago but it was negative so i don't know. It just doesn't seem right .

Also ... I just had a baby March 6 of 2014 but it was a still birth, my god mom says that my vagina might still be healing because I am only 3 months post partum .. someone please help me I don't know what is going on with me.

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. I am sorry to hear about your loss. It is common that after losing a baby, to get pregnant very quickly since your hormones are still high. Is it possible - the answer is simply yes. If you took a pregnancy test and got a negative result, you probably are not pregnant and your body is still readjusting. If you have concerns, make an appointment with your doctor.

I hope this helps and best wishes to you.
