I'm really confused. Some say that you can't have your period when your pregnant and some say that you can still have your period even when your pregnant.. And I've read somewhere that this so-called "periods" when your pregnant are somewhat like bleeding (sorry don't know what the right term to be used) and it's suppose to happen when your expecting your period making it seem like a real period.
So what's the difference or how can you tell whether you are having an actual period or just bleeding?? Sorry if I can't explain it well..^__^

Looking at your history here, I see this question has already been answered for you numerous times. No need for us to repeat ourselves. If you have a different question, please ask. Otherwise, our previous answers stand.
It's not possible to have your period and sustain a pregnancy. During a period, the unfertilized egg is flushed out along with the lining of the uterus that built up in expectation of a pregnancy. So, if you have a period, you cannot be pregnant, as the fetus would need that uterine lining to implant in and grow.
However, it is possible to have bleeding during pregnancy. That has nothing to do with menstruation, and if and when that happens to a pregnant woman should definitely contact her doctor, as unexplained vaginal bleeding during a pregnancy could be a sign of a complication.
