Periods during pregnancy?

I have read some posts online of women saying they experienced normal periods throughout their pregnancy. But on the other hand there are information that having a period means you are not pregnant since its the shredding of the uterus lining.

Also another related topics is implantation bleeding, which I've read lasts only a day (is very light and not as heavy as periods).

I've only recently started beig sexually active and use a just condom (not on BC). So all this contradictory information confuses.

What I need to be clear about is whether I should just wait each month for my periods to start, or take a HPT too even if i get my periods, just to be sure?
