Nydia May Have Been Experiencing Spotting
Pregnancy while having a period is not possible, but doctors say, women could experience spotting or bleeding.
There are several possible causes of bleeding during pregnancy. For instance, bleeding within 10 to 14 days may be due to implantation, when the fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterus. During the 2nd and 3rd trimesters, bleeding could be due to problems with the cervix³.
Of course, there are also instances when bleeding signifies other serious concerns, such as ectopic pregnancy, placenta previa, preterm birth, or miscarriage.
The good news is, according to the American Pregnancy Association, 50% of women who experience bleeding during pregnancy continue to have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Still, they recommend reporting any kind of spotting or bleeding while pregnant⁴.
Doctors also advise women to learn about the early signs of pregnancy and to get in touch with a healthcare provider as soon as they suspect they are pregnant.
