Bleeding Issues?

Jan. 11.

Could I be pregnant with a period?

No, by definition you cannot have a period while you are pregnant.  However, you CAN have light vaginal bleeding or spotting.  Many women report having some bleeding during the first few months of pregnancy, and often they assume this is their normal period (and that they are not pregnant). Don’t be fooled by the bleeding. If you notice light bleeding or spotting that is lighter in flow and different in color (perhaps pink or brown) rather than your normal period, this might be a sign of pregnancy. If you’ve had unprotected sex in the past month, take a home pregnancy test to be sure, or see your physician.

I’m not pregnant (according to pregnancy test), so why did I miss my period?

Missed periods can have many different causes, besides pregnancy these include: significant changes in weight, stress, illness, medications (e.g., birth control), changes in schedule, heavy exercise, illegal substances, breast feeding, other medical conditions, etc.
