You're period will not affect the outcome of the home pregnancy test.

Usually, your period while come during the placebo week of your pills. If you have not started your period even after the placebo week, you should take a pregnancy test.

Yes, you can have a pregnancy test while on your period. Your results will be pretty accurate.

Yes you can. You can get your period through the whole pregnancy. You should see a doctor to make sure there are no problems, but it isn't unusual

You can not have your period while pregnant, but it is not uncommon to experience spotting during pregnancy especially early on. Any blood during pregnancy should be taken seriously (even as common as it is) and warrants a call to your OB/GYN.

While some pregnancy test can tell you up to 5 days before your missed period, it's always best in my opinion to wait until your missed period. I would say a few days after your next hopefully missed period.

It is very uncommon and not likely for you to be pregnant while on your period. However, there are accounts of women that did have bleeding while pregnant. If you are showing early signs of pregnancy take a home pregnancy test as soon the seven days are up.

You should still get a period while taking birth control pills. Your period usually occurs during the placebo week of pills. If the birth control was not taken properly, then there may be a chance of pregnancy, which delays your period. If you have not gotten your period during the placebo week, your should take a pregnancy test.

Isn't pregnancy related as you wouldn't have a period if you'd conceived.

User Avatar

NO! because if you have period, it means that you are not pregnant, otherwise you would not have it.

Though rare to experience a period while pregnant, you should still be able to get an accurate answer about six weeks from your previous period. My experience is, I took a generic pregnancy test and got a false negative. so I suggest Answer or first response.

You shouldn't be having a period while pregnant. If you are experiencing bleeding and/or cramping you should contact your Dr right away or go to the ER.

Your period stops when you become pregnant. Some women do bleed a little while pregnant but it is not a regular period and a doctor should be consulted.

Having a period (shedding of the uterine lining) and pregnancy are not compatible but some women experience monthly period type spotting during pregnancy.

User Avatar

Its usually not a good idea you should wait until after your period to take a test and if it is a normal periods you probably are not pregnant. Some women have periods while they are pregnant but it is usually light bleeding or don't last as long as usual, etc. It is a bit of a waste of money as having a period gives you a pretty good idea that you are not pregnant.

Yes you can still have periods whilst you are pregnant.

User Avatar

No, it is biologically impossible to menstruate while you are pregnant.

A girl can get pregnant any day of the month, period or no period. Pre-ejaculate does contain sperm, while it is unlikely the pre-ejaculate will get you pregnant, it can happen.Yes, it's possible, so you should always use protection unless you're trying to get pregnant. If you miss your next period, you should take a pregnancy test.Yes, it's possible, so you should always use protection unless you're trying to get pregnant.

Periods can become lighter while on the pill. I wouldn't consider this a sign of pregnancy.

Usually, skipping a period while on HORMONE birth control happens when someone is sexually active and/or missed a dose. Sometimes, though, hormonal birth control can cause an imbalance and cause a person to skip a period. Get a pregnancy test. If, on the other hand, you were talking about barrier methods, such as condoms or diaphrams, and you skip a period you should get a pregnancy test. Either way, take a pregnancy test.

No. Why would you be taking a pregnancy test if you're menstruating? If you're on your period, then obviously you are not pregnant. The whole point of a pregnancy test is if you've missed your period, not while you're on it.However, you can sometimes have a period through your pregnancy. Quite a few women do.

If you're having your period, you can't be pregnant! That's why....

If you have had a menstrual period then you are not pregnant. It is impossible to have a period while pregnant. If you feel that you could be pregnant and are having bleeding during pregnancy you should see a Dr as soon as possible to rule out miscarriage, infection, and other pregnancy complications.
