Is it true that you can still have your period when are pregnant?

A woman will have nothing close to a regular period while pregnant; that's simply impossible. The hormone secreted by a fertilized ovum keeps progesterone levels steady, which prevents menstruation.

That's why a menstrual period is, in nearly all cases, a sign you're not pregnant.
