Can you still be pregnant even after you get your period?

Here are some personal experiences:

I was one month pregnant and I had my period the next month. While my mother was pregnant with me she had all her periods except the last three months.

After having what I thought was a normal 6-7 day period at my regular level of flow, I had a surprise miscarriage earlier this year. It happened on what I thought was the 18th day of my cycle (but I was actually 6 weeks pregnant.) We had been trying to conceive for about 6 months, and it was the first cycle in which I hadn't taken a pregnancy test on the morning my period was due. To save money, I made myself wait to see if my period was "late" before taking the test. Since I got what looked like a normal period, I never used the test. Now I test every time! It's 4 months later and we are still trying, now seeing a specialist!

They say 'when you miss a period that this is a sign that you are pregnant' this is not always the case. I have had three pregnancies, including one live birth and one lost. The first pregnancy I had two periods with, the second pregnancy I had four periods with and this pregnancy I had the first two. It's always tough to know as well because tests will say negative if you are still having a period.

Doctors would disagree, but I had 5 periods when pregnant with my last child. Yes, the normal (for me) 35 day cycle, and 10 day bleeding. The doctors will tell you "you can't get your period while ovulating" yet MANY women have occasional (or even frequent) cycles without ovulation. I also have endometriosis, so may have had something to do with it. I was told by a doctor my endo wouldn't "grow" or bother me while pregnant. He was wrong, too.

It is possible to still be pregnant if your last period was unusual. Do a test.
