Frequent Asked Questions On Pregnancy

Can I Still Be Pregnant And Have A Period?

If you are pregnant, you should not expect to have a normal period. It is possible to have bleeding around the time your periods are due. This is more like spotting that is oink or brown, but this should not look like a period. 

I am Bleeding After A Positive Pregnancy Test, What Do I Do?

If you had a positive pregnancy test and you are early in your pregnancy, talk to your doctor if you are bleeding enough to fill a tampon. Bleeding during pregnancy may be normal for some people, but all type of bleeding should be investigated by a caring physician.

Bleeding during early pregnancy can indicate implantation bleeding, ectopic pregnancy, or a miscarriage. Miscarriages are very common during early pregnancy and there is little you can do. In most cases a light bleeding will stop and the pregnancy will progress full term, in other cases it will increase leading to a miscarriage.

See your doctor right away if the bleeding increases and is accompanied by cramping, nausea, or vomiting.

I Am Pregnant and Feel Cramps, Should I see My Doctor?

When in doubt, always see your doctor. It is possible to feel light cramping during early pregnancy. As the uterus grows to adapt to the developing embryo, it is normal to feel some discomfort.

Can I Have Ovulation Pain While Pregnant?

During pregnancy your ovaries are not working, due to the hormone progesterone which dominates during this time.

Some women feel a sensation of discomfort that feels like ovulation pain, but it is actually a corpus luteum cyst that forms after the egg is released and continued to exist during the first trimester secreting progesterone.

After the first trimester the placenta takes over to task of producing progesterone. That's when most women stop feeling this type of pain.

My Periods Are Late, but The Pregnancy Test Says I am Not Pregnant. Can I Still Be Pregnant?

There are 3 main reasons for this to happen:

1. You are not pregnant and your period will arrive late due to stress.

2. You tested too early and need to retest in 48 hours.

3. Your test is defective, assuming you took the test correctly.

Not all pregnancy test are alike, some are more sensitive than others. Most women simply test too early, especially if they feel pregnant. I encourage you to wait until you have missed you period for 1 or 2 days before testing. If the test still shows a negative results retest every 48 hours. It you can wait a week, it would be better, it will save you some money.

If you do not get your periods after 2-3 weeks, talk to your doctor. Some women simply do not test well with urine tests and need a blood pregnancy test to confirm the pregnancy.
