Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Actually NO it is not possible for a girl to have a period 2 days after getting pregnant, the reason being that the cardinal feature of a pregnancy is absence of periods. If the girl bleeds AFTER getting pregnant and in significant amounts (amounts which are equal to the blood she loses in her period or even more) then it is more likely to be a miscarriage rather than being a period.

So basically any massive bleeding after a pregnancy has been confirmed MAY be an indication of a miscarriage and needs to be evaluated as soon as possible. Also minor bleeding/spotting which woukld manifest as mild red or pink colored spots in the underwear or when she wipes herself are considered normal in the first two weeks of pregnancy. However a girl CANNOT have a period after she is confirmed to be pregnant.

Do you have any more questions?
