My girlfriend and i have been sexually active for a while now and she had a pregnancy scare recently. She was two weeks late with her period but is now on. However she had many of the symptoms associated with preganancy, like fatigue, morning sickness and having to go urinate a lot. Could she still be pregnant even though she is on her period?
Thanks

Is her period the way it normally is for her in terms of flow, cramping, etc.?

If it was as usual, there's every reason to feel that she's having a period and is not pregnant.

If, however, it's much shorter or far lighter than usual, I'd suggest she do a pregnancy test, particularly if she did have a viable risk, like unprotected intercourse or intercourse with a known or suspected birth control failure.

Ok thank you very much. We used a condom and i don't feel that it broke or failed. but if it is unusual we will take a pregnancy test.
