Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I will be happy to help you today. I'm sorry you are having menstrual problems. The answer to your question is that it may be difficult, but possible for you to get pregnant. Since you are still having regular periods (except for this one) you are most likely ovulating. When you say your periods "are normally very regular," how far apart are they? Every 28 days, 30 days, 26 days? Having fibroids may interfere with getting pregnant depending on the location and a bleeding fibroid may be the cause of you getting your "period" sooner than expected. May I suggest you discuss this with your GYN/Obstetrician to determine your best course for achieving your goal of conception/pregnancy.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
