Re: can you be pregnant and still have a period

Are you trying to get pregnant?
You can be pregnant and still have a blood flow. It is not really a period, but an imbalance of hormones, so people will do this for a few months or the whole nine months at the time they would normally have their period. Since you were 8 days early, not knowing how long your cycle is, and since it was light, it could be implantation bleeding. This happeneds after conception when the fetus attatches itself to the uterine wall. In which case you would be pregnant.
I would wait until the time you were actually due to have your period and then if it doesn't come take a HPT (home pregnancy test)
Are your cycles very regular? Since it was light your body may have been low on estrogen.
Good luck, and let us know

Most definately. In fact, it is very common to have spotting, especially at the time you had yours, if you have conceived. We're you trying to get pregant? I hope you have good news. Good luck and please keep us posted!

Re: can you be pregnant and still have a period

I had this happen to me for my son. I was 21 when i got pregnant and I was pretty stupid about this stuff. I had an older mother and i have never asked her about anything ever. Everything was fine, i had a healthy baby boy. I had him a month and a half early but had nothing to do with the period.

Thank God for computers now. If i am concered about anything i come and look it up.
