Maybe your home pregnancy test is not accurate. It is thought that about 40% of pregnancies are 'lost' with the first period. Until the last few years there was no way of knowing you were pregnant before missing a period so this did not happen.

Yes you could be. It's possible to have a period during pregnancy. It's also possible that you've miscarried. See a doctor.

If you had a positive pregnancy test but then you started your period could you still be pregnant or did you have a miscarriage?

It's very hard to get a false positive result on a pregnancy test. The bleeding might be implantation bleeding. You should consult your doctor, and maybe take another home test once the bleeding stops.

It depends on the blood if it was a heavy long period then you probably arent, but if it was a light brown/pinkish blood then it might be implantation blood meaning you are pregnant

You can get pregnant anytime you have sex. Sex during a period makes pregnancy very unlikely.

Yes - take a test

No period and no symptoms of pregnancy but have positive pregnancy test could you be pregnant?

Yes as most urine pregnancy tests are now accurate these days, so it is very possible. If you want to be 100% positive go and have a hcg level drawn, this will be most accurate.

What could it be if your period is very little when you normally have heavy periods Could it be pregnancy if so when should you take a pregnancy test?

Many women report a slight bleed when their period is due. It is not unheard of, but is rather uncommon. An "early" pregnancy test from the pharmacy should give you a positive result now (ie when your period is due). But most test need about 7 days more to give a positive result.

If your on the contraceptive patch and bleeding could you still be pregnant if you have all the other signs?

The signs of pregnancy are a missed period and/or positive pregnancy test. Take a pregnancy test to see if you're pregnant.
