First off, may I ask why you are asking this perticular question? Does it relate to a possible pregnancy risk that pertains to you?

Either way, it is not possible for someone to have menstural periods and be pregnant.

Gotcha, I'm glad to tell you that there is no need to freak out whatsoever, since manual sex is just not a way that people get pregnant, kay?

There are a lot of stories on the Internet, but when it comes right down to it, it is not possible to be pregnant and still have periods.

Regardless, since you didn't engage in a situation that may pose pregnancy, it isn't something you need to worry about. [Smile]

You can get spotting during pregnancy which my seem like a period to someone when its something that has to deal with the pregnancy.

That is actually false. While it is possible to have irregular bleeding during a pregnancy, it is very unlikely for this bleeding to resemble a period.

That's not what I said. If someone doesn't know they are pregnant they could mistake it as a period especially if they have a history of irregular periods

If you missed a depo shot is it possible to be pregnant?

In order for any method of contraception to be effective, it has to be sued and used properly. So, if someone was using depo, but didn't get their next shot, they should figure they are no longer using depo, and thus, won't have the protection it offers.
