Help! My husband and I have been trying to conceive for over a year now with no success. My doctor put me on prenatals and sent me home with a chart. I had bloodwork done to ensure I was ovulating. Everything was fine. We continued the vitamins and charting until this July when I learned that I was accepted into Chiropractic school. We decided to lay off the vitamins/charting and if it happened…great. I’ve been totally preoccupied with school and border-line stressed. Lately (~last couple months or so), I have been very irritable, tired and my periods have been getting shorter and shorter. Usually, they are 7 days exactly. Last month, it was only 5 days and this month only 2.5. My question is, could I be pregnant? Can you still have your period while pregnant? I’ve read that implantation bleeding occurs but I’m pretty sure this is the regular ole’ Aunt Flo…just here for a shorter stay.

go pee on a stick and tell us!
I wish I could pee on a stick every day, but they are expensive, so I am holding out for a stick-worthy day (high temps for 18 days).
Your situation is stick-worthy.

Yes you can be pregnant and still get your period. I know a girl at work that had no idea she was pregnant until 6 months when she went to the doctor to find out what was up. She was always tired and bloated (did not look pregnant). It turns out she was preggo and still getting her periods!

I just wanted to add a quick note about the vitamins – even if you aren’t TTC, it’s always a good idea to continue to take your prenatal vitamins. That way in case you do have an “oops” your body still has the essential vitamins it needs for the pregnancy. Folic acid plays such an important role in prenatal health, I would just make a prenatal part of your daily routine – it’s a great multi-vitamin even if you aren’t in TTC stage!

Another negative test. 🙁 I hate when I get so worked up thinking I’ll finally get a positive and that darn little pink line is a no show. I did take your advice @Titsy1982 and @plantains; and started taking the vitamins again.
