Is it possible to be pregnant and still get periods?
A lot of people say that they had periods throughout pregnany. I just wanted to know if that happens or is it some ither bleeding that people confuse for periods.

Hello Anonymous,

That is a frequently asked question.

Some women may have spotting during their pregnancy.
That is not the same as a period.

When a woman has her monthly period, hormone levels drop and the lining of the uterus is shed. If this happens during a pregnancy, she will lose the baby.
