Having a period when pregnant: is it common?

No. It is impossible to get your period during pregnancy.

You may have bleeding for a variety of reasons during pregnancy. Some bleeding can even mimic your period but it is not your period. If you experience any bleeding during pregnancy it is important to let your doctor know. Your doctor will be able to evaluate the bleeding and to determine a cause. Some causes are serious and some are benign. Your doctor may be able to treat some causes of bleeding.

Any bleeding during pregnancy needs to be evaluated by a doctor.
