Is it possible - bleeding & pregnant
Doc,
Please help me with this. I usually have a 27/29 day cycle.
On Utrogestan from day 11 till 21.
I am sure we had sex right on ovulation. Well everyday for seven days over ovulation week.
Had cramps on day 23. Spotting day 25 and 26.
On day 27 normal AF. Today it is like almost completely gone.
My mother had her periods till month three of pregnancy.
Can I still hope to be pregnant? I never have spotting of funny cycles.

Dear Desperate Mandy

The use of utrogestan from day 11 is inappropriate and can be a cause of dysfunctional uterine bleeding. Utrogestan specifically is of benefit in the post ovulation phase and hence I would have instituted treatment with ovulation monitoring so as not to disrupt the endometrium (lining of the womb) prematurely.
