What do you do when you have started your period and you are scared to go to school?

Why would you be scared to go to school? Menstruation is a normal process that many people experience, menstruation doesn't stop you from doing what you would do normally and there's no reason to be scared about doing anything on your period.

Can a pregnancy test show positive while experiencing vaginal bleeding bleeding?

Any pregnancy bleeding is scary, even though about a quarter of pregnant women experience some bleeding. Pregnancy bleeding is sometimes just spotting. Pregnancy spotting is not heavy bleeding and should not soak through a maxi pad. Spotting is a very light flow as if in the last or first days of normal period cycle. In addition, it should only occur during the first trimester of your pregnancy. There should be no bleeding in the second and third trimesters of your pregnancy. Pregnancy bleeding can be more serious and can signify a serious problem. Bleeding may be a sign of early or preterm labor. It can also be a symptom of an infection in the cervix. It is important to call your health care provider right away any time you have pregnancy bleeding, and tell them how much you are bleeding, for how long, and what the blood looks like.
