Hey having periods when you are pregnant is not normal. I have heard it is a sign of abortion. Please get yourself checked. Do not delay.

Confirm it is pregnancy related or delayed menses[Occsionally infalse positive test].
Bleeding some times occurat menturation time for first few months in some pregnancy.
Take rest. If t is painful,fever then better consult Gynecologist to rule out miscarriage.

Technically if you are pregnant you cannot get your period but there are several reasons for spotting during pregnancy. Sometimes, early in pregnancy, a little bit of blood may be present during implantation but the amount is very small and will go away. It appears that some women spot during their pregnancy around the time that they would get their period. Sometimes spotting can be an indicator of a miscarriage. If you start spotting, try to stay calm and contact your doctor for a check up. If the bleeding is heavy and you are experience abdominal pain contact doctor immediately and/or go to emergency room.

this is missed abortion, better go and get the scan immediately. it can also be ectopic pregnancy.

I am 19 years old and have been having unprotected sex with my two year boyfriend. We have been using the pulling out method I am not on birthcontrol. My period was suppose to arrive on the 7th & today is the 11th & I have still not had my period. I felt all my pms symptoms such as irritability and what not. My nipples have been sore & I have a sour stomach with heartburn. I have currently moved in with my boyfriend so I have been feeling stress from my family members & my diet is completely changed. I took a home pregnancy test & it came out negative. Any ideas of what could be wrong??
