Be sure not to get ANY menstrual blood on the test strip.If you know for sure that you are pregnant, it is probably not going to be your period, although some women have experienced a "first" period then learns a couple of weeks later that they really are pregnant. It is possible that it could be implantation bleeding caused by the fertilized egg to attach itself to the uterine wall. Or it could be a cervical change that can cause vaginal bleeding. Vaginal bleeding can also be a symptom of ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. Another cause for bleeding during pregnancy is a miscarriage although the first two reasons for bleeding are more common, it is still a good idea to contact your doctor as soon as you can. Here is a link to a website that will calculate the probability of your pregnancy: To ensure the best results: * Take the test in the morning, if possible, because your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are at it's highest * Don't drink a bunch of fluids before taking the test because it will dilute your urine and can affect the results * Take the test no more than 1-2 days before expected period. Although some test say that you can see results up to 5 days before your missed period, the percentage of accuracy is very low. * urinate for as long as possible on the foam-like strip * wait for the results!

Bleeding during early pregnancy can be a sign of various issues such as implantation bleeding or a potential miscarriage. It's important to contact a healthcare provider for evaluation to determine the cause of the bleeding and ensure the health of both you and the pregnancy. Drinking excessive water may have coincidentally helped with dehydration but does not directly stop bleeding.

Is it possible that you could get your period during pregnancy?

No, it's biologically impossible for a woman to menstruate while she is pregnant - although she can bleed for other reasons during pregnancy such as a result of implantation bleeding, placenta becoming detached, or hormonal changes. If a woman suspects she may be pregnant she should take a pregnancy test. If a woman is pregnant and experiencing bleeding she should see her doctor ASAP - if bleeding is heavy or she's late in pregnancy go to the hospital.

Can you having a menstrual period through your pregnancy throw a home pregnancy test to be negative?

Hard telling really. I took 2 hpts before I started bleeding and they were positive. Then when I was bleeding I took 2 more and they were negative. Haven't gone to the doctor yet. So I'm not real sure if the blood interferes with the results or not. For a sure pregnancy test you should go to your doctor. .

Can a women still bleed while being pregnant?

depends on how much you are bleeding. if you are wondering and unsure, and can't take a simple pregnancy test, a sure way to tell is if your boobs are tender. when your boobs are tender and you are spotting, but not really bleeding, then you are probably pregnant. If you are bleeding every day (especially if you are not pregnant), you might want to contact your doctor.

Hello, it is not nor?

Hello, it is not normal to have bleeding while pregnant, but since it occurs after sex there is a good chance it i from cervical irritation or vulval irritation rather than the pregnancy being affected. I would still recommend that she have a pelvic exam and an ultrasound to make sure everything is in order with the pregnancy, because bleeding may also be a sign she is losing the fetus. but from your description, I don't think that is the case
