I recently tested positive for pregnancy, but I got my period on the expected date. Is it possible to still be pregnant even if I'm menstruating?
Artificial Intelligence Health Assistant's Answer

It is possible to experience bleeding during early pregnancy that resembles a period. This is known as implantation bleeding and can occur when the fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterine lining. It is lighter and shorter than a regular period. However, if you are experiencing heavy bleeding or have concerns about your pregnancy, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional for further evaluation and guidance. They can perform additional tests, such as blood work or an ultrasound, to determine if you are indeed pregnant and assess your overall health.
