My husband and I had sex in feb a few times during my most fertile days… and then had sex again the day before my period in early March. I had my period for 5 days… now this month I am late. My cycle is always 28 Or 30 days. And as of today i am on day 35. I had a tiny bit of spotting today, was brownish in color. Nothing since. I have tender breast to the touch… I have bad bloating, cramps and a little dizzy the other day. Is it possible that I ended up pregnant from having sex in feb but still got my period in march? Would you take a test?

I really doubt it. When you get your period the inside lining of your uterus dies off and flushes out. Any egg that was released in Feb would be gone by now.

Just take a test. You can have some bleeding early on in your pregnancy that sometimes can be mistaken for a period.

it’s not very likely, but if you were pregnant from sex in February you should light up a pregnancy test without a problem.. so there’s one good way to be super sure

The only way this is remotely possible is if you actually got pregnant in February, and what you thought was your period in early March was actually implantation bleeding.
Now, five days is an awfully long time for implantation bleeding, but it may be possible. Did your period seem normal? Normal length, amount of flow, etc?
But yeah, if that did happen, a pregnancy test should be unquestionably positive by now. There’s exactly zero chance you got pregnant in March from pre-period sex, so if you are pregnant, you’re more than a few weeks along at this point.
Take a test, see what happens.

I will be taking a test this weekend to ease my curiosity 🙂
Wasn’t sure how common it is to have a period and be pregnant still.
to be honest I don’t remember if it was heavy or not. I do remember thinking o was being done but the next day I had light spotting.

How did you tell you were within your fertile time in February? Did you do the same tracking in March? Only a pregnancy test can tell you for sure.
Did you recently come off horomonal birth control? Cycles can be wacky in that case.

did you not have sex at all in March after that period? You could have gotten pregnant during that time too even if you weren’t tracking as carefully.

This did happen to me. It’s not real common I’m assuming but I think it’s still common enough that it wouldn’t be a surprise for it to happen.
It wasn’t a period though, it was heavy implantation bleeding. It lasted 3-4 days and it was just like the periods I had on BCP (so not super heavy but heavy enough I needed and used my cup). I just assumed it was my period. So I didn’t find out I was pregnant until I missed the next period. So I was already 8weeks pregnant when I actually found out. My second pregnancy I had zero implantation bleeding.
You can’t actually have a true period and be pregnant, but you can have bleeding in pregnancy for a variety of reasons. So I’m guessing the women who say they “had their period” were bleeding for other reasons and assuming it was their periods. And bleeding doesn’t always mean there is a miscarriage or something wrong, so still perfectly normal to go on and have a healthy pregnancy even with some bleeding.
Yeah, if your current period is late then you should take a test. If it was from February it would be a strong positive. You don’t need to wait until this weekend.

oh my. Haha I’m just nervous that’s why I’m waiting. I’m on day 6 of being late.
didn’t have sex besides that day before my period in march. Hubby worked 6 days a week and it was nightshifts so he was really tired. I track when we have sex.
I got off the pill in October and since then I’ve always been consistently 28 Or 30 days for my cycle. I use an ovulation app I know it won’t be 100% but we have sex throughout the month not always just on the days it says in fertile.
