Sexpert Q&A: Period During Pregnancy?

Dear Yvonne, Is it possible to have your period while pregnant? -Liz

Dear Liz, It is not possible for a woman to have an actual period while pregnant. She may, however, experience vaginal bleeding. It is not uncommon for women to experience some spotting and light staining during the first couple months of pregnancy. If you're pregnant or suspect you may be, and are experiencing bleeding, consult with your health care practitioner immediately. If you have any reason to suspect that you're pregnant, take a test!
