Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Having an actual period isn't very common, but it can happen. Most women experience some amount of spotting at certain times, like after intercourse, after a pelvic exam, and of course, after the egg implants. But full on period type bleeding with bright red blood may be a cause for concern. If you've had a positive pregnancy test and are now feeling like you're having a period you should call your doctor immediately.
