Alright, I had sex about a month ago, and had my period last week. I just heard that there is a possibility that you can be pregnant and get your period. What are the chances? Please help!

Due to the way human reproduction works, one can not menstruate when one is pregnant.

However, in the first few months of pregnancy, it is quite normal to experience spotting and slight bleeding (for example when implantation happens, several days after conception), which some women mistake for mentstruation.

If you are worried about pregnancy even though you have menstruated as usual, I'd recommend that you take a pregnancy test to clear your mind.

Also, just in case you were worried about being pregnant because you had unprotected sex, please don't forget that even though you most likely didn't get pregnant (because you menstruated), you still had an STD risk, and need a screen.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, it was a regular period, and no, I did not have unprotected sex. Thank you so much for your help! You totally helped me!
