    I wanted to find out if it is possible for women to get pregnant and still have their periods?

    Some women bleed in the early months of their pregnancy. This is not a menstrual period but is often mistaken for one.

    Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP replied to kamilacbronx's response:
    Dear kamilacbronx: It can be from an infection (eg chlamydia), or it can be "normal" or it can indicate a problem with the pregnancy. Here is a link to an explanation of many of the possible causes of first trimester bleeding:

    In my clinical experience I have seen women bleed as heavy as a period in the first trimester and still have a healthy baby.

    Yours,
