Can I have a period and still be pregnant?


No. When you have a period, you are shedding the lining of your womb so it is not possible to have a period and be pregnant. However, it is possible to be pregnant and have bleeding that may seem like a period. In this case, you should contact your GP immediately. Bleeding during pregnancy is not unusual but may signal a problem with the pregnancy and it needs to be checked as soon as possible.
