    It is possible to have bleeding during pregnancy but these are not true periods they are called breakthrough bleeds.

    I've heard of stories in which the woman did not know she was pregnant, no bump, no morning sickness, but still had her period. Just depends, don't think it happens that much though. And even then I don't think it's a proper period.

    Uhh, I thought that meant... the person sort of... bled out the pregnancy. I've had friends say that happened to them . Not sure though myself, never been pregnant...

    EDIT: Apparently this can be a dangerous sign and you should check everything out with a medical team asap. See NHS link. NHS know. :yes:

    So, if you don't mind me being graphic.
    I always have heavy though irregular periods, I'm not sure if breakthrough bleeds are the same?

    I'm not a doctor and therefore cannot give you medical advice. But some bleeding or "spotting" is common during the first 3 months of pregnancy, spotting is most often quite light. If it is heavier then that could be a cause for concern you should speak to your doctor/midwife immediately, though I advise you contact them ASAP anyway, it's important to know what is going on and what can happen during pregnancy if anything to keep you calm and your blood pressure down from worry .

    No worries
    I should have stated.
    I wonder if it's possible to get pregnant without genital contact? Probably impossible right?
