in Pregnancy Period General by
Hi, I recently took a pregnancy test and it showed positive. This wasn't surprising as I was experiencing a late period and unusual symptoms. However, three days after the test, my period started with a normal heavy flow. I'm confused about why I got a positive result despite menstruating. Can you explain this?

It is possible to experience bleeding during early pregnancy that resembles a regular period. This is known as implantation bleeding and occurs when the fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterine lining. The bleeding is usually lighter and shorter than a typical period. However, in some cases, women may experience heavier bleeding that can be mistaken for a period. It's also important to note that home pregnancy tests detect the presence of hCG hormone in urine, which can still be present even if you are experiencing bleeding or have had a miscarriage. If you are unsure about your situation or concerned about the positive test result followed by menstruation, it's best to consult with your healthcare provider for further evaluation and guidance. They can perform additional tests or examinations to determine if you are pregnant or if there may be any other underlying factors contributing to your symptoms.
