Pregnant Before Period

Can you get pregnant three or four days before your period and still get your period? I've read lots of different women saying that you can, that your body may not have registered anything yet, and the next one will be late or missing. I'd like all kinds of responses please, not just ones that deal with what a doctor tells you can and can't happen, because its already proven they don't understand everything. THank you!!!

No you can't. Period. You wouldn't normally ovulate that late but even if you did your luteal phase (the time between ovulation and your next period) must be at least 10 days for an embryo to have time to implant. If you ovulated 4 days before your period that would mean you only had a 3 day luteal phase and you would definitely need to see a doc for luteal phase defect. Most women ovulate between cycle day 8-CD14 (for <28 day cycles) all the way up to CD20 or so if you have super long cycles (>35+) You asked for all kinds of responses and the truth is LITERALLY anything is possible, but THIS would be the rarest of rare possibilities ever for the reason I just gave you above. Also if you truly had a period, that is another "proof" you are not pregnant. Many women have bleeding during early pregnancy that mimicks a period but it is not, because having a period while pregnancy is impossible as during a period you shed the lining of your uterus and if there was a baby in there you would shed the baby as well (miscarriage)

If the only time all month that you have s_x is in the week before you expect your period, and your period comes as and when expected, you are not pregnant. This can't be relied on for contraceptive planning, because sometimes your entire cycle may be delayed, ovulation and period both. In this case you might get pregnant a few days before your expected period, but the period would not come as and when expected. Good luck!

it's not true that you can't have a period while pregnant. yes you can. my coworker didn't find out she was pregnant till she was four months along. she had her normal period for those four months. I've heard of other women also having their period while pregnant. Everyone's bodies are different. Weird things do happen.

Yeah, that's what I keep hearing, and then someone seemingly gets snippy and thinks because it didn't happen to them or anyone close to them that it just CAN'T happen. And even though it isn't a period, its enough blood to make you think its a period. Thank you so much. This is kinda what happened to me. I forgot to take the last active pill in my pack, and three days later started my period, but today its so light its basically spotting....which doesn't make sense because I stay fairly medium through Fri, and get light Sat. Its probably just missing that pill that sorta put my body into a "huh, what's going on?" mode and its messing with my period, but you never know, because everyone is SOOO different.

quietlilrachel, she bled but it wasn't her period. You CANNOT have a period it is biologically IMPOSSIBLE. Bleed yes, menstruate, NO! Aliana asked for "all kinds of responses".. and I wasnt getting snippy. Don't ask for advice on an advice forum if you are prepared for ALL ADVICE!

aren't*

You also didn't mention you were on BCPs, HELLO! Thats kinda important information you left you....

out* . . .

Yo, what I think the problem is, is that when some of the women here are saying period, they don't literally mean it. But because it is heavier than what you consider "spotting" they just don't know what else to call it. Is there a technical or medical term for bleeding that's VERY similar to a period and yet you are pg? I'm honestly interested if there is, because there is a girl on another thread who wants the answer too...so what i'm trying to say is that it seems that plenty of women on here are getting upset about other's saying the word, "period"...apparently a couple women went to the doctor with concerns of miscarriage, but when they were checked and fine, the doctor couldn't give them a name for the heavier bleeding. I know you could call it spotting, but that does imply that its light. I'm sorry if I offended you in any way krissy2006, I probably just should have used a different word. You know something funny? I actually saw (excuse me, read) a fight between three different women on one very old thread...its just funny. I don't want to fight with people I don't even know, so again I'm sorry if I sounded snide.

 

krissy2006 - March 2

Its fine, I'm sorry if I was rude as well. Bleeding in early pregnancy is call in-pregnancy bleeding. Any bleeding that is pink or brown and not full red flow even if it isn't just "spotting" is called spotting....

 

Aliana - March 2

Okay, cool. Thank you! So are you pg right now or have any kids?

 

krissy2006 - March 2

No I am not PG, no kids. I do have 50+ nieces and nephews though.. does that count? LOL In any case the fact that I don't have any may seem to discredit my knowledge and sometimes I know I do come off like a know-it-all, but I have been on this forum for close to a year now. I am in my 8th cycle TTC and have experienced, read and been taught soooo much by the ladies on this forum! It is amazing the misconceptions women come here with... like for example: that you can have a period while pregnant... and it is amazing to learn what your body is capable of and what it is actually doing when you thought it was doing something completely different. Are you TTC? Your first?

 

krissy2006 - March 2

Ok so I just realized from an outsiders stand point 50+ neices and nephews seems a bit unrealistic... at least my hubby pointed that out. My hubby actually is the baby of 11 whole siblings and 3 more 1/2 siblings and each of his 14 siblings has a minimum of 3 kids... hence the 50+ nieces and nephews... :) The funny thing is my eldest brother inlaw is only 6 years younger than my grandfather and his eldest daughter is 10 years older than me...heehee...weird family I know . . ..

Holy c___p, that's alot of kids. I'm actually gonna stop taking my pills and get a fertility monitor, just to kinda get in the swing of things. Plus I hate the way the bcp is now making me feel. I'd LOVE to have a kid right now, but my husband and I were planning on waiting. He's all about having absolutely everything ready before kids, and I know that's good, but to a certain extent. We have so many friends and family down here that can help us out with babysitting or whatever that I think its not a problem if we tried in the next year. However, we do need to get a bigger apartment or a small house. I'd like the second more, but that's just me. You know what's funny? I'm the baby of my siblings, and yet the first to be married. I'm pretty sure I'll be the first to have children, too. I wish I had a niece or nephew to hang around and get used to babies. But such is life! Yeah, my friend's mother comes from a family of 14 children, all from the same parents, so she's got a c___p load of cousins both way older and way younger than herself.
