Many women often wonder how possible it is to have a period during pregnancy. Well despite all the claims, you can’t have a period or menses during pregnancy. However, some women may experience intermittent vaginal bleeding while they are pregnant, but it's not possible to have a period because menstruation can only take place in the absence of pregnancy. So what usually happens is that during a period, the uterus sheds the lining that has built up in case of pregnancy so it's very possible for a woman to experience a uterine bleeding when pregnant but it's not a sign of period.
The issue of bleeding often happens during the first trimester than in the second trimester of the woman's pregnancy. An estimates found out that about 25 to 30% of pregnant women do experience some mild spotting at some point of their first trimester and this is due to a number of reasons such as:
1. Cervical cell changes which often cause some light bleeding, most especially after having sex.
2. Due to ectopic pregnancy often regarded as a medical emergency.
3. A miscarriage or pregnancy loss
4. An infection
5. Subchorionic hematoma, often due to bleeding occuring between the placenta and the uterine wall.
6. Molar pregnancy
7. A rare condition know as "gestational trophoblastic disease" (GTD), which simulates the woman's pregnancy by causing a tumor which may contain abnormal fetal tissues.
However, most women do not have any periods while breast-feeding but they may soon begin to ovulate after giving birth. So this why you'll need to see your doctor often so that he can recommend some methods of birth controls for you.
