Can you have a period while you're pregnant?
Home> Common Questions >Can you have a period while you're pregnant?


Vaginal bleeding is not always a period (menses).

A menstrual cycle (or period) is the process of shedding the lining of the uterus (endometrium). This process occurs about every 28 days. It may last 2 to 7 days and indicates that pregnancy has NOT occurred.

Bleeding during early pregnancy may signify the embryo has implanted, a tubal pregnancy, a threatened or missed abortion, or bleeding from the placenta. Bleeding that recurs throughout pregnancy may be the result of an abnormally implanted placenta (previa) or partial separation of the placenta.
