This is due to hor monal fluctuations that one may be going through during the process of pregnancy. Having a full menstrual period during pregnancy does not occur during pregnancy. If excessive bleeding is noticed during pregnancy, it is imperative that one proceeds to be seen by the doctor immediately to determine the cause of this bleeding. One possible cause of excessive bleeding during pregnancy is miscarriage, which indeed is a concern that requires immediate medical attention. Thank you for choosing
