Is it possible that I am pregnant even though I have my period? the sex happened 1 day before my period, and currently i have my period now but it is shorter than usual. Usually I will have my period 6 days (1 week) but now, i had it 4 days. It was heavy for the first 3 days (like really heavy) but after that i am still bleeding but a lot lighter. We did use a condom and he pulled out before ejculating.

What do you guys think? [Frown]

If you used a condom for all genital contact, and it did not slip off or break, you do not need to worry about a pregnancy risk.

Too, it is not possible to have a period and be pregnant.

If you haven't had any intercourse since before your last period, then you aren't pregnant, so no worries there. I'm assuming that you mean your last post in this thread.

There are many reasons why periods may be late or irregular, such as changes in diet or stress levels, or just your body deciding to be a little different for once - it happens to the most regular of people, and that's okay.

Sometimes periods are just late. Things like changes in sleeping and eating habits (due to stress or other reasons), a different exercise routine, travel, all of those things can mess with your cycle, and sometimes a period is late for no obvious reason at all. Bodies don't always behave exactly the way we expect or want them to. [Smile]

If you've not had the kind of sex that can result in pregnancy since your last period, then there's no reason to be concerned that you might be pregnant, but if you want extra reassurance you can take a test. Otherwise, you just have to wait it out.

Hi, just another update. I finally took the pregnancy test and it turned out to be negative. But tonight i had a red/ pinkish discharge, though very little. Is that what you call spotting? The discharge looked like just a normal everyday discharge but it's very light red and with stomach cramps. I do not know what's happening [Frown] and it's already the last day of july and i still havent gotten my period. Was the pregnancy test wrong or am I just really thinking too much? Because i missed my period for this month [Frown] considering your advices that i am not pregnant, is it still normal to be having this red pinkish discharge?

Spotting is a term that just means short, light bleeding.

How late, in your estimation, is your period now? How many days long as your cycles normally (in other words, from day one of one period to day one of the next, how many days are there usually)?

Have you missed one for more than two cycles? It doesn't sound that way, given your first post, and with you testing negative for pregnancy, so that rules that out, unless you miss for a couple of or a few cycles, there's usually no cause for concern or need to see a healthcare provider.
