Delayed periods, altered menstrual flow. Had risky pregnancies in the past. Could I be pregnant even though I had bleeding?

My period is pretty regular. It was five or six days late but then I had a regular flow. I wasnt crampy and didnt reallyhave any clotting. At first there was clotting but now its just blood . The flow stopped pretty much on the 3rd night and my periods are usually 5-6 days long. Can I be pregnant even though I bled? The one HPT I took came bac negative but that was the day (5 days late) I started my bleeding . I do have two children both were extremely high risk with problems during entire pregnancy...

Thanks for your query.
Since this period was delayed, and the pattern was not like your normal period, you should be doubly sure .
Sometimes, a miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy ( pregnancy outside the uterus ) presents in this way.
Also, rarely, a woman bleeds but still pregnancy is ongoing.
Since one HPT is already negative, I suggest you consult a Gynecologist who would examine you and suggest an ultrasound/blood pregnancy test for confirmation.
Take care.
