If you are having a period, you probably aren't pregnant. And a heavy period isn't a sign of pregnancy, but a light period can be.

My sister's period came on with each of her 3 children, and it wasn't spotting either. I'm not sure why yours is heavy, but for sure women can receive a normal period and still be pregnant. Be sure to check with your OB/GYN. Good Luck.

You can spot during a pregnancy but if you start bleeding heavily it can be a sign of a miscarriage.

Pregnancy period? Its not possible to have a period during pregnancy.

A light period that is caused by pregnancy will usually cease within 48hours and only require 2 sanitary pads during this time. But its possible that a slightly heavier period than the above may be a indication of pregnancy. Performing a pregnancy test would be ideal in your situation. If its negative then you simply have a lighter period this month.

Hello, There is no safe time to have unprotected sex. You can even become pregnant during your period. During your period there is a 1% risk of pregnancy occurring. Outside of your period there is a 2% risk of pregnancy occurring. During Ovulation there is a very high risk that pregnancy may occur. So basically to prevent pregnancy you need to abstain from sex or use the necessary precautions (ie; a condom, birth control etc)
