I'm just curious about this- not an emergency or anything [Smile]

I had sex yesterday (condom+spermicide) so I'm not worried about being pregnant, but my period is due to start today. But say I had gotten pregnant-would I still get this period because it's so close, and then stop the next month?
Same thing-If you get pregnant during during your period, does the period stop in the middle? Or continue and then stop for the next month?

Thank you!

Pregnancy takes about a week to occur, so if a woman happens to ovulate the day before or during a period then she can still become pregnant. If pregnancy occurs it would change the current period (wouldn't stop or be missed) because the egg that would be fertilized would be the one from this past cycle.
