Can I be pregnant if I still have my normal periods?
I've been having normal periods and I'm having pregnancy symptoms. I'm going to take a test, but I'm just wondering if it is possible
tlkittycat1968 responded:
If your periods have been normal in duration and character for you (not lighter) then it's very unlikely you're pregnant. Some owomen have period-like bleeding during pregnancy but it isn't common.

Very rare, but it happens. There is that lady in Connecticut that had periods every month and didn't know she was pregnant until her water broke. Again, extremely rare.

Hi there, yes there is a possibility and not. What you are experiencing is very rare and better check on home pregnancy test or the best thing to do is visit and O.B. Gyne. If you wanted to try also checking your last ovulation so that you will know if you are pregnant, I will share you a site where you can calculate your ovulation period. God Bless.
