is it possible to have a late period one month and be pregnant the next month?

Anon - It is physically impossible to have a period while pregnant although some women do experience bleeding but mistake it for a period. If you have your period, you cannot be pregnant.

Oh i know that. I guess i was trying to ask, was it normal to have a 13 day late period in September, and in October get 3 positive hpt.

No, that's not normal. You should get in touch with your doctor and also ask for a more sensitive blood test for pregnancy.

Hi! I had a similar experience. My period was late one month. My period didnt come the next month, and I also had multiple positive hpt. You may have had a chemical pregnancy. Ive heard many stories where women have late periods that end up being chemical pregnancies, and in the following month they become pregnant. Im not implying that this is what happened to you. Its just a possibility.
