Period During Pregnancy?

By August 6, 2003

Follow me on:

Women's Health Forum: I should know the answer to this one after going through all my science classes in college but want to make sure... Does getting a period, no matter how light it is, mean that you are NOT pregnant? For instance, if I got my period a week after I had sex, does that mean for certain that I am not pregnant? For some reason I am thinking that I can still be pregnant but cannot remember the logic behind it. Thanks for any help! Have you ever had a period while you were pregnant?

(4) a mom says:

It is still possible that you may be pregnant. What you could very well think is your period could be spotting due to the embyo implanting in the uterine wall. This occurs a few days after fertilization happens. Also, bleeding could be a sign of a problem with a pregnancy. If you are having severe pain, you should see a doctor asap because this coul be a sign of an ectopic pegnancy (where the embryo implants in te fallopian tube, not the uterus). This is a problem that needs to be solved right away due to many issues it can cause both now and later. Many women report getting a “period” in the early stages of pregnancy. My advice would be go take a pregnancy test even if you think that you’re having your period (especially if yoyu missed a birth control dose, the condom broke, you weren’t on birth control, or you feel very differnt from how you usually feel when you are getting your period) or go talk to your doctor about getting a pregnancy test don at the clinic. On the other hand, the bleeding could actuall be your period, not a pregnancy. Good luck.

my sister had her period all through her pregnancy. It was a normal blood flow that lasted 3-5 days in opposition to her normal 5-7.

(7) mandy says:

I had sex and then my period came 14 days late… or so i thought. i had no cramping or any PMS symptoms at all like I usually do at that time of the month. On average, for my body, becaause everybodys different, my period usually lasts from 9 to 12 days and this only lasted about 3 days and was extremely light. since then i my breasts have been very tender and i have bloated like ive never bloated before. (please excuse any detail that is too graphic, im sorry!) but also i have found that my vaginal secretions have increase quite a bit. and i have no irratation and the discharge is normwl. so i was also wondering?? could i be pregnant??anyone wanna help me out??

(10) dr.bekki says:

my advice is get a home pregnancy test. Do it at a friends house if you need to because of parents etc.) Also look at your breasts for any changes. Are there tiny blood vessels coming to surface. Little goosebumps standing up around your nipple? THese are other signs of pregnancy.

(11) Haydee says:

I have a question…
I had unprotected sex and its been months now.. me and my husband dont use protection but lately I have been feeling pregn.. syntoms and I took a home preg test and they always turn out negative but I have gained weight.. and I do get dizzy and nauseas… I went to the doc and took a preg test ( urine ) and it was negative.. could I still be pregnant? should i take a blood test?

January 4, 2007 at 8:36 am
(12) Courtney says:

To Haydee,
Get your doc to do the blood test! they should have done it before. Some women never show up on the pee tests!

(13) Silva says:

Im actually going through what is called a period and this is my first period in two months. I am pregnant but Im very confused about the situation Im in. Me and my boyfriend had sex and right after that I started spotting, is it my period or is it something else. I got a doctor appointment tomorrow so I hope that good results come to play because I would be hurt if I were to be miscarrying.

(14) Liz says:

I have a question…..My husband I separated and started seeing other people. I had a one night stand, started a very heavy period 8 days later. 12 days after my period, I had sex with my husband and became pregnant. My sonograms look normal for the date my husband and I concieved, but I still get nervous knowing I had sex so close to the conception date with someone else!! There’s no way it could be the “one night stands” baby when I had such a heavy period,right?!!!

(15) Tery says:

My bf and I were fooling around but had to intercoarse. Our parts did not rub but they touched and he wasnt ejaculating but I think he was Preejaculating. No rubs, just 1 touch and I cant get that out of my mind!I did get my period and got a preg test and it resulted in negative. Why am I still scared?

January 13, 2007 at 1:19 pm
(16) Tery says:

*sorry had NO intercoarse.

(17) Makynzi says:

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex a month ago, a couple days before my period. My period still came. About 2 wks after I started feeling strange. Breast tenderness, nausea, frequent urination, night sweats, lower back pain, abdominal swelling, and extreme thirst. I also had a very light bloody or brownish discharge for about 3 days. We had sex again about 5 days ago. But now I think that I am having my period again. It’s the correct date for it, but I usually have very painful cramping and extreme PMS symptoms with my monthly. The cramps now are very mild and I actually feel okay. We are trying to get pregnant. I didn’t take a pregnancy test yet because I wanted to see if my period came. I’ve heard of period during pregnancies. Could I be pregnant???

(18) Stephanie says:

(19) Dawn says:

Hey ladies, I noticed just how support & helpful you all are so I figured I`d give it a go & share my situation with y`all. Here it goes:
My name is Dawn, i`m 15 years old. I`m in fear that i`m pregnant. Well, it`s the 28th of January, 2007 & I just so happend to lose my virginity on the 1st of January, 2007 about 4:00am. During the time I was having sex I was on the last day of my period, which was more like a spotting discharge as if my period was coming to an end, which it did. Anywho, I had unprotected sex [three times; i`m kinda worried about pre-ejaculation.] that morning. Two times he was on top & once I was on top. He said he wouldn`t ejaculate in me, but I have a feeling he did. I was on top & everything, & all of a sudden he stops me when I`m in the middle of doing what I was doing to tell me he loves me. I think he was trying to distract me while he came inside of me. Only reason I think that is because we had only knew each other for about nine hours [I know, stupid; but I was in such hurry to lose my virginity for some reason.] Anyways, about a week after that I started getting something that seemed like menstrual cramps [mild], only problem was I had just gotten off my period. Anyways, as the week had gone on, I started getting the idea I`m pregnant as more symptoms suddenly arisen. Such as; burping [often] & gas [often], lower-back aches [starting to move to the middle of my back.], short frequent head-aches [weren`t so bad today.], white discharge [looks alil thick from what I can see.], been feeling nausated [on & off throughout the day.], tingley/tender breasts they also feel a teeny bit larger, some food cravings, tiredness [even when I had enough sleep.], peeing alot [well it`s quite often, compared to the number of times I usually go.], runny nose & sneezing [started the past couple of days & it`s quite often.], I also occasionally get sharp lightning pains in my breasts. Okay now to my next little problem. It’s the 28th of January, it`s bout time to for my period. Well yesterday, round 9:00am, I went into the bathroom & I noticed a pinkish/brown discharge. As the day went on it got redder & redder, & became heavier throughout the day. Only had ONE clot, very small though. Today it has died down a bit & now its a dark red. Not to sound sick or anything, but I was look at the blood on the tampon. I noticed some brown patches in it. I dunno what to think. I dunno if this is implantation bleeding or my real period. It just doesn`t feel like my REAL period. So confused. I went to the doctors yesterday too for a urine test, came back negative. OH! I forgot to say. I took a positive HOME pregnancy test before my doctor visit = positive.
Please ladies. HELP!!!!!!

(22) Monique says:

I don’t see many ppl getting replies but I decided I would post my story anyways. My partner and I have been having unprotected sex for almost a year now and well to my knowledge I haven’t been pregnant before. For the last few months though, I’ve been FEELING pregnant with a few symptoms. Before October, my period was very regular but now it kinda comes on when it feels like it. Also my breasts are always tender and when I squeeze my right breast sometimes a clear discharge (no more than a small drop) comes out. And for the last wk, it feels like I have a fluttering in the lower left side of my abdomen. If anyone can just give me a clue, please help me. (I have not taken a preg. test since around Oct., was neg.)

(26) Sasha says:

me and this guy have sex all the time, and use protection, but lately i have been feeling sick in the morning and throughout the day, and i got my period, but it only lasted about a day, which is weird. Should i be worried about being pregnant?

(27) Really Worried! says:

Ok my bf and I always use a condom! We have never had unprotected sex but I keep feeling really weird lately. I started my period yesterday but it is about a week and a half early. I even had to come home from school cause I just got soooo sick. I thought it was just from my period being early and my periods always hurt really really bad, but now it isn’t hurting at all. Well I went to church last night and a lady at my church is a nurse. I asked her if it was weird to be having my period this early like this. She immidately yelled out “You’re Pregnant!” my immidate response was “NO I’ve never had sex” but the whole time I kept thinking about yes I have had sex. Well as I have been thinking about it I have been getting easily sick lately and I am so scared to think about the possibility of being pregnant. I told my bf and we are both freaking out! I’m only 16 and neither of us are ready for a baby! We both have all these plans for our future and while we both want to spend the rest of our lives together since we have been together now for almost a year and a half, we are still only in highschool. I am goin to get a test tomorrow but could I be pregnant? Help me please!!!

(28) praying for you says:

Before I comment, I want to say that I am a 51 year old mother who first had a baby at 15 in 1971 (when there was still a great stigma in the culture for out of wedlock pregnancy.) Now to my post: By now, Really Worried, you know if you are pregnant or not. If you are, I urge you to go to your mom and tell her about it. My mom didn’t handle things really well, but she loved me and tried to do what was right for me. As a mom myself, I would want to help my daughter (my youngest is 18 and still at home). Even if I didn’t do it right, I love her and would still want to help.

My pregnancy changed my life, but more than that, having sex before I was married was what changed my life. It’s been said that boys give love to get sex, while girls give sex to get love. I have seen this to be true in every case of out of wedlock sex I’ve known about. But there is a Love greater, from God, and He doesn’t ask you to give Him something wrong in order to give you that love.

So am I saying unmarried sex is wrong? Yes. Even you know that, else you would have no trouble letting everyone in your church know all about it. But is unmarried sex the worst sin out there, or unforgiveable? No. But like all sin, it makes life tough for everyone, baby included.

I would urge you not to make the baby pay for your mistake by killing it. I would urge you to go to your mom for help. I would urge you to go to God for forgiveness and help and courage and love. “Neither do I condemn you” He said. And He doesn’t. I am praying for you (and for all the young people on here who are afraid).

(29) AJ says:

I haven’t been seeing many replies, but I’m going to post my issue. I’m 23 yrs. old and have had a pain in my lower left abdominal/pelvic for about two weeks now. At times it is a very sharp pain and sometimes it is very weak. My viens in my chest area have become very visable and my breast are swollen. I also get very dizzy at times. Also I have had a lack of energy. I had a very light period about a week ago, on time.

I started my dream job about a month ago and do not have insurance for another two weeks. I am unsure if I could be pregnant or if it could be something else like my appendix. I am very worried, please someone give me some advice.

(30) mel says:

My partner and i have had unprotected sex quiet alot over the past few months, we are both in our twenties, he is in a high paying job and basically we just decided to ‘go with the flow’ my periods have been ontime before and since we have started doing this however (as weird as this sounds) i hav felt weird movement feelings in my tummy, sort of like a bubbling sensation….. i have had the most enormous apetite ive ever had, and incredible headaches & emotional mood swings, i know i can just take a test but i’d like to know someones opinion mainly because i feel silly going to the doctor saying i feel i may be pregnant even though i have had my period, any help would be appreciated. cheers.

(31) Mercy says:

I AM ttc so last cycle when I was ovulating we baby danced. This period came right on time but the 1st day (Tues) it was just spotting. Wed I took a hpt 1st thing in the morning (neg) I had a few clots but barely any bleeding at all & threw the night. Today (thurs) I still only have blood when I pee. This seems very odd for me. Plus I don’t have any of my ususal symptoms,except frequent urinating. I guess I’ll wait & see if it gets heavier or more consistant. If neither than I’ll take another test. Good Luck To Everyone!!!

I am a 20 yr. old college student and I had sex 3 weeks before my period. My period came on time but I had been spotting the week before. Since my period went off, I have been have some weird pulling sinsations at the back of my naval (inside me belly). Could I still be pregnant? I need to know so that I can stop taking my birth control pills. HELP!!!!

(33) Jen says:

AJ, I think you may have a condition with your colon. It’s very common and can be nothing, but can also be very serious. It’s called diverticulitis. Look it up on WebMD. You may find that your symptoms are very similar. I know you don’t have insurance, but you really should go to a doctor to get checked out. If you have this condition you have the potential of getting a severe infection. It could also just be a flare up that will pass in a few days. But why take the chance. Go see a doctor!

(34) Worried Teen says:

Me and my bf always have unprotected sex. We broke up now, and ive been feeling sick all the time, even before we broke up. I started my period yesterday, but i didnt even have any cramps like i usually do. And its not even its regular color. Its more of a brownish color and very light, and i usually have a very heavy period. My dad tells me that im showing signs of pregnancy, i have been having crazy cravings for all sorts of foods..foods that i never even eat. I have gotten a awkward type of discharge too, and my father claims that its a type of sign of pregnancy. Im very confused, so if somebody can please help me I would appreciate it much. Im going to the doctor on Friday for a check up to find…im nervous.

April 17, 2007 at 6:04 pm
(35) Michelle says:

The best advice I can give to half of you is STOP HAVING UNPROTECTED SEX. I don’t want to lecture you, and I know some people get pregnant by accident when they are using contraception, but I learnt my lesson the hard way. I had unprotected sex just once and got pregnant, right in the middle of my university degree. Luckily I managed to go back and finish studying, and I wouldn’t swap having my little boy for anything, but it has been so so difficult. So to anyone having unprotected sex, please stop, because any plans you had for your life will be over if you suddenly have a little one who is completely dependent on you for everything. Go make something of yourselves, there will be time for a family later, when you are mature and financially & emotionally stable.

(36) Scared says:

my boyfriend and i have been having (protected) sex since the beginning of march; on march 28th, the condom broke, and we didn’t realize it until afterwards. we’re both seniors in high school and have our whole lives ahead of us. my period was due today, but i only got a light brownish discharge. i’ve been having lower back pain, but that might be due to my lack of sleep because i’ve been worrying about this a lot. everything else has been normal. i took a home pregnancy test and it came up negative, but i’m still really scared. anyone have any suggestions as to what i can do to ease my mind?

April 18, 2007 at 12:32 am
(37) Scared says:

oh i forgot to mention, i have also been on birth control since december 2004. i do not believe i am pregnant, but at the same time i wonder why my period isn’t normal. please help?

(38) Kaylin says:

I am looking for some advise & information…I am 34 yrs old, married with 2 children. I have been pregnant 4 times…1 teminated and 1 Ectopic. I received my monthly on March 22 & then April 23(today). Pardon the grossness, I have worn the same pad all day as my period is extremely light. I did have on a tampon earlier this morning but removed it when I saw nothing major on it. My concern is as such….I have been having all the symptoms of pregnancy. The fatigue, swollen breasts, cravings and not to mention moodiness…BUT, I have had my tubes tied since 1997. I understand that there is no way to get pregnant (apparently), but I had my ectopic pregnancy in 2002. Could I be going thru this all over again? I wouldn’t mind if I could carry to term. Could tubes rejoin? Is it possible to get pregnant again without a reversal? I would appreciate any advise I could get. Thanks.

(39) pati says:

i started on aviane close to 4 months ago (just started my fourth pack). about a week into the 3rd pack i had sex for the very first time. we used a condom as well as me being on the birth control. but 2 days later i started feeling really sick to my stomach. nauseous and cramping. i did get my period on the day it was due and it lasted the normal length as well. but ever since 2 days after i had sex i have felt sick. even up until today. just nauseous all the time. i took 3 pregnancy tests (one at home, one at the doctor’s and one at planned parenthood) which were 4 days spaced apart after my ‘menstral cycle’ was done for the month, and they all came back negative. i’ve heard about getting a period during pregnancy, false negatives and feeling sick shortly after conception.

i’m wondering if the side effects of the pill take this long to kick in or if i’m actually pregnant. the first 2 months i felt fine, but now i just feel completely nauseous. does anyone have any input?

(40) Jamie Currier says:

I’m 18, and me and my boyfriend for the past 6 months have been having unprotected sex. Recenty like most of you have been saying…I’ve felt pretty weird. Breasts are hurting, I’m bloated, I have a lot of gas, I have apaullingly bad mood swings, and my stomach does look a little bigger.
Certain foods make me feel sick, even just the thought of them, and I can go through days where I lose my apetite, and then other days I eat like a pig. I’m drinking about 3 litres of water a day, no jokes, and I’ve had a lot of fluttering feelings in my uterus area/cramping, and my stomach feels really hard and guarded.
I have had my period though. It usually lasts 7 days, but the first day was more brown, the second day there was blood, and the 3rd day it just seemed to disappear.
One of my best friends recently had an abortion, and I’ve seen what she’s gone through and how much it hurt her. I’m really scared to tell anyone, especially my boyfriend, as I don’t think I would be able to have an abortion.
Could somebody please tell me if I’m just being paranoid or crazy, or if these are genuine signs of pregnancy, I’m going out of my mind with worry, and I’m too scared to go to the doctors.

And in responce to the eptopic pregnancy post, my aunt had a similar thing. She did turn out to be pregnant, there is always still a chance.

(41) Ashley says:

I’m 17 years old and me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex with him ejaculating in me about two weeks ago. Two days later, we had it again and I freaked out and took the Plan B pill. (Though I’m not sure if I took it in time.) Me and my boyfriend had a long talk about having unprotected sex, and though I’ll probably be viewed as dumb for doing this, we’re not going to use condoms anymore. He really wants a baby and I know he’ll be able to take care of me. I got my period a day or two earlier than usual, but it started out very light and got heavier and more normal as time went on. I’ve been having weird feelings in my stomach and I do feel quite a bit different. (But this could also just be my mind playing tricks on me because of the possibility of being pregnant.) I’m not sure if I’m pregnant or not, but I’m going to take a test this weekend.

May 10, 2007 at 12:13 pm
(42) Ashley says:

Oh, and by the way, for the birth control question. My sister said that when she was on birth control, her doctor told her to count any bleeding, whether heavy or light as a period. Not sure if that’s entirely accurate, but that’s what her doctor said.

May 10, 2007 at 10:20 pm
(43) ASHLEY says:

i had the same problem as some of you i took my boyfriends virginity and we didnt use any protection and he later told me he had came in me
i was sort of hurt because he is 15 and i am 17 but i had my period a couple days later is it to late for me to be preg
or am i just worrying for nothing

but i feel very tired and hungry more than i usually do

so we can stop worrying

Kay, me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex twice about a month ago. He said he pulled out before…you know…but I’m late on my period by about a week this month. Though, I’m kinda confused because I’d gotten my period like 2 days after the last time we had sex. My mom says it could’ve been a “false period”. Could I be pregnant? What should I do? I’m only 16 and kinda freaked out!

(49) RJ says:

I got my period two weeks after having my last period. For me that is not normal. My fiancee and are are trying to get pregnant. I was wonder if I am pregnant or not? I am 35 and he is 40, I already have two teenagers (17 & 18) from a previous marriage. Anybody have any thoughts?

(50) Jen says:

It’s pretty simple. Go take a test. Take a test at home, go to the Family Doc or even the free clinic. If you are having a heavy period, then you probably are not prego’s, but to be sure, go get a test instead of sitting around guessing. I have a feeling that some of you younger ones want to be pregnat, trust me, wait, it’s not worth it.

Hi everyone,

Ok well me and my boyfriend always use condom during the sex but for whatever reason that I dunno it always happen for us to make love when I have my period and for whatever other reason that I dunno we always get so into it during my period times that we dont even use any condoms. My bf is very very sensitive on that and always uses condom but during my period it just goes out of hand. Anyways we did have sex last month during my period twice with no protection. Ive been fine and I did get my period this month also. However, my period is never on time so I dont even bother looking at the dates but it is usually every 3 weeks and I always get a very heavy period with cramp the first 2 days but this time it was shoert plus that it was ligh the first day the second day it was heavy and after that it was again light with no cramps. we also did make love this time too with no protection so I need to know when is the right time for me to have a test? is it too early to have a test now or I should wait untill the next period?

(52) Emanuel, Medical student says:

Hi everyone,

Although I have not very much practical experience in this field, I have many years of study in contraception and STD.
First thing… to be able to give a prediction I have to know how long your period usually lasts and how often it comes. Second… you can NEVER be absolutely sure about it… because virtually anything can happen… we are just talking about chances… Third if you are not sure you should always take a test, tell your parents or go see a doctor…

Though I am no expert and therefore I can not be made responsible for any of you actions, I’d like to share my thoughts on some of the questions, at least the ones during the last 2 or 3 months… so… let’s start…

Maryam, to answer your question… it takes about three weeks from the intercourse for a home pregnancy test to be accurate…

RJ, you mean two weeks after your last period started or stopped? Well if you got your period it is unlikely… I was thinking of something else which is implantation bleeding, which happens about 6 days after the egg has been fertilized, it is shorter and easier. If you want to get pregnant I might know some ways to succeed… just e-mail me…

Chloe, I don’t think your pregnant. If your period was two days after and it was a normal one and on time it is very unlikely you are… even for implantation bleeding, your period was just too early…

Laura, (told you, you can never be sure about that), but I don’t think you are… a late period may be unusual but is not conclusive…

neli, it’s strange they couldn’t see anything on your ultrasound, normally your uterus should have grown in size, and when they ave examined your cervix, it should have been soft… but, it’s just strange…

ASHLEY, if you’ve got your period, you’re probably not pregnant; what do you mean by “a couple” tell you what, ovulation usually takes place 14 days BEFORE your next menstrual cycle and the ovum lives at most 24 hours before it disintegrates so you can see for yourself…

Ashley, it is really your own choice what you want to do and I don’t see why you should be bothered by what others think… in your case there are too many things to take into account… Plan B pills are more efficient when they are taken as quickly as possible, but they are effective up to 72 hours (3 days). They contain a great dose of hormones which can upset the normal going on of things… so do birth control pills, but there are a lot of kinds and that’s another long story…

Jamie Currier, yes, these could be symptoms of pregnancy, your period was strange too… still those symptoms make me think more of an affliction of the digestive system… you should go see a doctor…

pati, in your menstrual cycle there are absolutely no signs of a pregnancy, and no positive test, condom and birth control… that’s very, very, very unlikely for a pregnancy… I think you are just worrying too much… or maybe you have some other kind of problem…

Kaylin, it’s hard to say… there are many techniques used in tubal ligature, but I’ve heard somewhere that a pregnancy is possible… so… if you haven’t had any period it’s very likely!

Scared, well… that’s a tough one… I can’t say… If you were on birth control then probably not, if you’ve had a strange period probably yes… I really don’t know what to say…

Michelle, you have all my respect…
And to everyone… Do not forget that the purpose of sex is reproduction, that’s what it is done for… And remember that absolutely no contraception method is 100% safe (except maybe abstinence) and if you think of having sex, please think about the consequences too and if you think you can not handle them then, just let it be…

Worried Teen, your father is probably right… still you should know the answer if you’ve been for that check up

Well, that’s it for today, if you have any further questions or you know anyone who does, e-mail me at emanueld1@yahoo.com

(53) Becky says:

Hi all,

As I read over the many messages, I realized how little many of us know about our bodies. It is true that if you have intercourse, you do increase the risk of becoming pregnant. However, the time in your monthly cycle that you have intercourse is key to determining your potentially risk of pregnancy.

For all of you who are interested in learning more about the female reproductive system and how to better determine the time of ovulation (Which is especially important if your are planning to get pregnant or want to avoid pregnancy!), I would suggest Toni Weschler’s book “Taking Charge of Your Fertility: The Definitive Guide to Natural Birth Control, Pregnancy Achievement, and Reproductive Health.” It will help to demystify the female cycle and help you learn to read your own body. For example, did you know that your waking body temperature changes throughout your cycle as does the clear discharge you have throughout the month? Your body痴 temperature tends to be lower before ovulation and higher after ovulation. I and several friends who have tried (and succeeded) to get pregnant or were trying to avoid pregnancy have found this book to be very informative. They wish someone had explained the ideas in the book to them when they were teenagers. It would have saved them many days and nights of worry about changes they noticed in their bodies as well the worry of a possible pregnancy.

I would not recommend natural birth control unless you are committed to your partner for life. A one-night stand and a miscalculation of your cycle could easily turn into a lifelong commitment if you become pregnant. Those of you who are sexually active and not married, please, please use protection. While the pill is a good preventative of pregnancy, it is not a preventative of any STDs.

I wish you all the best.

(54) sarah says:

Maryam, please use protection when having sex during the time of the month that you have your period. Just because you are having your period doesn’t mean that if you have intercourse that you can’t pregnant. It is just as risky as any other time. If you are young? School-age? Please protect yourself. Babies are a life changing event. Good Luck!

July 23, 2007 at 12:38 pm
(55) sarah says:

Chloe — please use condoms!, or other birth control. You are only 16!!! Best Wishes. If it turns out that you are NOT pregnant please think enough of yourself to use protection. Your boyfriend at this age will probably not stick around to help you. Sounds like your mom is there for you to talk to. Talk to her about birth control. You can go to clinics for help also. Take care. Good Luck!

(56) Jeriann says:

I have had unprotected sex with my boyfriend and was having pregnancy symptoms. My breasts have been swollen and i’ve noticed they’ve been veiny, i’ve also been getting strange cravings and the other day i could smell some food in the other room and i gagged just because it smelled so strongly.

My actual question was i was thinking i was pregnant because of all of that but i started having a short spotty period. it was darker than usual and i thought that it was a normal sign but then we had sex after that and the next day i started bleeding(1 week late). and it was heavier than usual. is there still a chance that i could be pregnant? or should i not be worried?

August 12, 2007 at 6:26 pm
(57) jamie says:

the past few months have been pretty stressful for me. i had unprotected sex i had a few pregnancy scares in the past few months, but im so confused. i had sex on may 17th, a few days after my period had ended, then i got my preiod again, but very light about two weeks later, and it only lasted about 2 days. then since then, every 28 days, ive had a lighter, shorter period, with all the pregnancy symptoms. how common is it to have this type of bleeding during pregnancy? im 12 weeks and 3 days pregnant today. oh and im only 16 :)

September 8, 2007 at 5:35 am
(58) Katie says:

im wondering the same thing, i had unprotected sex and my period came a week and a half late, but i still feel nautious and i get cramps and pains in my lower back, so im wondering if i may be pregnant. i also a few days after having unprotected sex expierienced spotting, and ive never done that before. and then after being a week and a half late i figured i was pregnant and then my period came along, and i figured i wasnt, but ive been expieriencing pains in my breasts and lower back aches and an occasional headache. so if anyone can help PLEASE do!

October 5, 2007 at 4:46 pm
(59) lilia says:

hi! me and my husband had intercourse and the condom burst then the next day we had inercourse again without a condom and he came in me the next day i started my period with a whole lot of cramping and i did not feel good the rest of the day. and i am still aching. i’m i pregnant or not?

October 14, 2007 at 11:38 pm
(60) Janet says:

Hi everyone! Lately I’ve been trying to get pregnant. Like last month I’ve been having sex with my partner since now. I’ve been having back pains and feel bloated at times. There’s times I’m not hungry. Just today I got my period. But I feel like I am. I need answers!!! Plz:::…

October 19, 2007 at 5:24 pm
(61) Chell says:

My first pregnancy I had a period for the first two months and when I had my first ultra sound I was eleven weeks. I though I had just got pregnant. During intercourse the condom broke, and I was ovulating. I think I am pregnant again, because I had just a 3 day period. Could it be, I am takinga test today but I am nervous, because the guy is leaving into the Marines on sunday which would not be cool. I need advice please, I am desparate.

October 19, 2007 at 6:24 pm
(62) Lisa says:

Yes you can definitely be pregnant and have your periods. I had my normal periods (between medium-heavy) and suddenly I had lower backaches, headaches, nausea, and bloatedness. I took about 4 home pregna ncy tests and they came out negative. I decided to go to the dr and get check out. I came out positive with them. I found out I was 3 months along without even knowing. Sadly…it ended up as a miscarriage.

October 19, 2007 at 6:45 pm
(63) Chell says:

Yeah that is how my first pregnancy was, but just the first two months. So now I am worried that I am again. I guess I should go to the doctors and have a PAP to find out. I would only be about six weeks if I am. Better to find out sooner than later. I am just not prepared but I know that I can handle it, but I don’t think I could handle the father not being around for so long. That is what I am worried about. And we have only been dating for three weeks, so we are not really together persay. I have talked to him about it and he says if I am than we will take care of it together.

November 6, 2007 at 12:31 pm
(64) sara says:

so here is my situation. I started seeing this guy about, mmmm i’d say almost 2 months ago now. We had unprotected sex about two weeks after my last period and i’m not on birth control, and he came in me like 3 times and then we had unprotected sex again the next day. I know this all seems somewhat stupid on my part, idk what i was really thinking. At this point we were in a relationship. well last weekend i found out he was also in a relationship with my friend’s roommate. I got my period yesterday, Nov 5th, and it is a pretty decent flow. But lately i haven’t been hungry, and my breasts are tender . . . but they were before so idk if that is related to something else as well, and idk if that is stress or what. i thought i was not pregnant bc i got my period, but then i talked to him last night and he told me i could still get my period even if i am pregnant. He wants me to be pregnant bc he wants to have kids with me so i know he would help support me and the baby. But i’m scared and uncertain about everything right now. I’m 20 yrs old and am going to school. I know my parents would support me and do everything they could but i know they would probably be really ashamed of me. I don’t believe in abortion but i just need to know if i am pregnant. If ne one has any suggestions or just wants to be supportive feel free, i’d really appreciate it. THANKS!

(65) Emanuel says:

Hi everyone!
Thought, I’d answer some more questions! If you still have questions, you can e-mail me at emanueld1@yahoo.com (same adress as before).
Jeriann, you can be pregnant! I suggest taking a pregnancy test to find out more. What is happening to you, is not normal!
Jamie, periods during pregnancy are not that uncommon. As long as it is not heavy or it does not last very long, there is little to worry about…
Katie, a delayed period is a possible sign of pregnancy. Your first bleeding might have been implantation bleeding, which sometimes happens when the fertilised ovulum nests itself in the uterine wall. I’m pretty sure you are pregnant.
Lilia, I think you are not pregnant. I see no real reason from you to be, from your description.
Janet, it’s really hard to tell from just 2 lines of text. I’d apreciate some more information….
Chell, if you’ve had your period during your first pregnancy, it is common to have it during your second too…
sara, I’d say, the symptoms you have described don’t reallly prove you are pregnant. I don’t know why, but I’m not convinced. 2 weeks after your period ended (if you have it about once every month) are usually a time when you are not fertile. As time passes you will either have more symptoms, or have your period again! Then you’ll know for sure!
I wishh you all the best!

(66) natasha says:

This question is for Emanuel. I need your advice. I am 23 years old and have always had irregular periods, when I say irregular, I mean like 3-4 per year. My husband and I never use protection because it seems like it might be difficult for me to get pregnant. Well I stopped breast-feeding my son when he was 10 months old and we continued to have sex unprotected, my period never came while I was breastfeeding and didn’t actually come intil about 6 days ago, which is 2 months after I stopped breast feeding. I have been feeling nausea, headaches, and extreme motion sickness for over a month now. I did take 2 test at home but both came out negative. I am on day 6 of my period, and we did have intercourse last night unprotected. I am still feeling all of the above symptoms.. Is it possible that I could be Pregnant? We DO want another baby, but are having a hard time because my period is so irregular. Sorry if info is too graphic, but do you have any advice for us?

November 20, 2007 at 1:52 pm
(67) Emanuel says:

Hi natasha, you are right, it’s really tough for you to get pregnant. While breastfeeding it’s rather unlikely to get pregnant. I usually pregnancies tend to repeat themselves. That means, you should judge by your first: did you have the same symptoms? Did you have your period while you were pregnant? Did you take a pregnancy test and it came out negative? I, for myself, believe that you are not pregnant… You are on your period so it’s rather unlikely! The reason for your symptoms might be the hormonal changes which occured after you’ve stopped breastfeeding!
Now, there are some ways to get pregnant in your case. Well, best thing to do is consult your physician in that matter. You might want to try an artificial fertilisation. That’s not like cloning or something, it’s just that your child is going to be conceived by other than perfectly natural ways. Well, ask your physician. What I do recommend, is that you try monitoring your cervical mucus. That way you can determine when you are fertile! It’s really the best way to find out when you are fertile
At first it might be weird, but I think you can get used to it and it’s worth the effort!

Jamie Currier! Please let me know what you found out about your symptoms. I am having the EXACT SAME things going on with me. I can feel something moving in there I swear! And I am 29 and have 2 pregnancies already…

November 28, 2007 at 1:09 pm
(69) mandy says:

Okay. I figured out what was causing my strange symptoms. I had been using a prescription topical acne medication that caused a disruption with the microorganisms in my body. In other words I had an intestinal yeast infection! It made me really thirsty, bloated and tired. I cut way back on the carbs, started eating unsweetened yogurt, and now I feel great!

Hey Emanuel!! Thank you so much for replying back to me so fast!! I have my docotr’s appointment on Dec. 14th and she told me that she wants to check me for ovarian cysts! She said that they would explain my symptoms. I have been doing what you said about monitoring my cervical mucus!! I really hope nature works in my favor. However, My doc told me that due to my irregular periods, I could possibly enter menopause in my late 20s or early 30s. How depressing is that?? I will keep you updated.. Thnaks again, I really appreciate your advice!

Hey guys my name is Niki and I am a 19 year old student at NKU. Well, me and my fiancee have unprotected sex VERY frequently….and lately I have been feeling very matronly and my breasts have been sore, I get killer headaches, I get nausous easily, and in krogers I smelled fried chicken all the way at the other end of the store!I also recently got a yeast infection of which I never recieved prior, and my areolas are darkening.I was pretty positive I was preg, but then I had my period. It was light the first day, but very heavy the second with no clots, and now its basically gone…but what is there is a blackish color. It was also only a couple days late. My period usually lasts at least 5 days. I took about 4 hpts before my period, all negative. I still think I could be though. Im extremely moody. One minute Im the most chipper person u meet, the next I am depressed, then I bite ur head off. I just want to kno what is wrong with my body. Me and my fiancee would love a kid, and even though it would be difficult since we r in school, I think we could do it, even tho we r not trying to get preg. I don’t believe it would be a mistake if we were. So what do u think? Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank u for taking the time to read this!

I also forgot to mention that my appetite has increased sufficiently and I have been craving things like fast food and banana peppers…..Before i was a pretty health-conscious eater….strange huh? I have also gained some weight. I if was I would only be about 5 or 6 weeks along. Thanks again!!

December 23, 2007 at 7:46 am
(73) Emanuel says:

Niki… Ok, what you describe is really the textbook version of pregnancy symptoms. That until the part with the period. So… By this time it’s really difficult to say… The worst thing you could fear is that you were pregnant and at some point there was a spontanious miscarriage. That can happen for many reasons. Best is you should see a doctor to check if you don’t have some problems with getting pregnant!

(74) lissa says:

to all of you who have had sex for the first time and then a late/strange period…
that’s fairly normal after losing your virginity because your hormones get messed around with a little.
i was a virgin til i got married, my first period was pretty normal, a few days late but nothing serious, the next one i was SOOO sick and threw up because my cramps were so bad, and then after that they just have started balancing again.

also, when i moved out of the house and started living on my own, i think my periods started being strange because they used to be synchronized with my mom and my sister (who is on birth control). if my sister would miss a pill and her period time would get kinda messed up, then my period would be late, too.

it’s weird how women’s bodies try to “catch up” with each other when it comes to their cycles.. :)

December 28, 2007 at 6:54 pm
(75) Michelle says:

Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me with some advice, b/c I’m a bit confused as to if I might be pregnant or not. I’ve been having unprotected sex for the past few months. Before that, I was a virgin . 3 weeks after I had sex for the first time, I was feeling cramps and pains in my abdomen area, my period was not due for another two weeks, and I only ever get cramps 1-2 days before it comes. My breast get very tender also before i get my period, but that wasn’t the case. I thought I would be pregnant, and took 2 pregnancy tests, and both came out negative since its only been 3 weeks since. A friend suggested it may be too early to show up on home pregnancy tests. My period did come, but it only lasted a couple days. a week later, I had sex again, but during sex, I bled…alot. It was bright red. I feared it might had been a miscarriage, because right after, the pains all of a sudden just stopped. That was about a month and a half ago. I got my period like normal last month, and I’m due to get my period this month in the next 2 or 3 days. But again, about 2 weeks ago, I started having the same exact pains as last time, I figured maybe It was my ovulation, but they keep persisting up until now. The last time I had sex was a month ago, a day right before my period, and also 2 weeks before that, when I bled. Anyone have any advice as to what might be going on? I took another test, but it came out neg. I thinking it might also be what lissa explained about how loosing your virginity and how it can mess with your cycle. I don’t know…

(76) lily says:

I had protected sex in november. My boyfriend pulled out and used a condom. I had also just gone off a short stint of birth control about 1.5 weeks prior, which gave me my period (meaning I had sex just a day or two after my bc induced period ended). I then got my period about 3-4 days late in december. This time it was lighter than usual; it was heavy one day and then the rest of the days (about 4-5) it was light and kinda brownish. It is now January and for some reason I am freaking out. I dont have the symptoms of pregnancy I dont think, Ive gained a little weight (but its been the holidays) and I am constantly bloated. I should just go take a test but what are the chances?

(77) CTR says:

OK ladies, especially the ones in their teens. Pregnancy is a serious issue and should not be taken lightly. I am 23 with a 3 year old and still trying to get my life together. I got pregnant the day after my pill ended and found out at the doctor appointment to refill my birth control. The only symptoms I had were tender breasts, which I thought was from an upcoming period. Do I regret my decision, no way, I love my little girl. But if I could go back, I would do the same thing, just later in life. My advice, always wear a condom, and if it breaks, get the morning after pill. It is available over the counter at most pharmacies. And you might want to think about diseases also. I personally know someone who is now HIV positive from a one night stand. Think about your life before you lay down with anyone, even your boyfriend.
Anyway, other pregnancy symptoms, lightheadedness, morning sickness all day, spotting, back pains, headaches, cravings usually come later. And sometimes you want to be pregnant so bad your mind formulates false symtoms. And tests aren’t 100% so go to the doctor after a missed period and they can do a blood test.

(78) Tiffany says:

Hi Lily, I am in the same situation. My boyfriend and I always start off sex without a condom then we put one on before we get out of control. I had my period right before christmas, it was heavy one day and then light for about 3. It started off weird though, I slight cramps about a week before my period. Since then we have had sex completely with a condom. Now this past week I have been feeling nauseas during the day. It took a pregnancy test this morning, and it was negative, but i was told I needed to wait a little closer to my upcoming period. I kinda feel that I may be pregnant but I’m not sure. I know I need to go see a doctor, but work sure does get in the way of things. It’s just I have heard about women who have had their periods through out their complete term, so I am a little confused.

January 6, 2008 at 4:47 am
(79) Emanuel says:

Michelle… There are many reasons you can bleed while having sex! It is true that after having sex the first time the way you experience changes in your menstrual cycle BUT not so that you bleed during sex! Reasons for that would be rather infections, STDs (don’t get scared, not like HIV, there are also others!), abnormal flora growth… What you should do is go see a doctor! (I’m not such a great expert on STD… yet)

Lily… stop freaking out! From what you’ve said so far you have really no reason to…

CTR… I agree with everything what you say! Everyone else should read this post!

Tiffany… don’t use condoms like that! That’s NOT the way that they are intended to be used! Now as you’ve said! Wait a litle, take a test, see a doctor! Well, women that get theor perios during the full term, are very, very rare! Usually that is genetic so their mothers or grandmothers had that too… It is more common to have a period during the first trimester of pregnancy!

January 7, 2008 at 1:56 am
(80) Unsure says:

Fair warning, I’m going to put some semi-graphic details in this:
So here’s the deal. A few months ago I had a “condom malfunction” with someone I’m seeing. I went to the doc and got the morning after pill (which made me violently ill and I threw up for 2 days straight!!! horrible experience! not to deter anyone, but be prepared for the possibility of being debilitatingly ill!) My doc and I also went threw my mentrual cycles from the past few months and determined that I was certainly in my fertile window (though my window is much larger than many women because my mentrual cycle varies in length from 28 to 39 days, with avg 35 days).
At any rate, I got my period 10 days after the night of the “oops”. It was very light, lasting only 2 days (opposed to my usual 5-7 moderate to heavy days). It was heavier than spotting though, but I would have only soaked one to two pads in those two days(obviously I changed more frequently for hygienic reasons!). I was still concerned and did an hpt, which was negative.
Two weeks later I am nauseous all the time…not just mornings, but randomly throughout the day. And my GOD! the smells can be overwhelming. I can be in a restaurant and be fine one minute and suddenly I am bombarded by such a mix of smells that I must run to the loo. Over the next few weeks, my breasts become somewhat swollen and tender. Mostly along the sides though, like someone stabbed me in the side of the breast and is dragging the knife down. I can’t tell if this has gotten better over the past few months, or I’ve just gotten used to it???
Became worried that I got a false negative on the hpt and went to doc’s. Another negative test at the clinic, so I must not be pregnant I figured.
I have a 36 day cycle that month, but my period is odd again. Usually I have moderate to heavy bleeding, a lot of clotting and a dark purplish flow. That period again only lasted about 2 and a half days, was a light pinkish colour, and no clotting. I did not have intercourse that month with him at all, so couldn’t be a new pregnancy???
Over the next month I did have intercourse several times (yes, same gent). The symptoms explained above have continued. I have NEVER been one to nap, and usually rely on only 5 to 6 hours of sleep a night. I now sleep 8 to 9 hours a night and take a 2 or 3 hour nap during the day (this is a more recent development, over the last 3 weeks or so). I don’t know if you could say I’m urinating more necessarily, but I feel like I have to urinate a lot. I get this urge like I’m almost about to wet my bloody pants, and only a trickle comes out??? THAT has been going on for almost 2 months. Again, I start thinking I really must be pregnant. The sickness has continued, and some days I feel like I’m going to die from vomiting (sucking on freezies seems to help if anyone else is suffering!). I took yet another hpt, and yet again it is negative. I didn’t even know most of these (other than morning sickness) were symptoms of pregnancy when I got them, so I don’t think I could be manifesting them??? Plus, in the past couple of weeks I’ve noticed a change in my lower abdomen. It’s not super hard, like having a bowl in there. More like as though someone put a small balloon under my skin. There’s a bit of give to it, but not a lot, and it has a bit of shape. My doc says there are plenty of reasons this could happen, including an upcoming period (which is quite likely true, but I’ve never experienced it in my last 17 years of ovulating).
Finally, I have been having emotional surges. I have always been teased because of my lack of emotion in many instances. I cry now…A LOT! I think it’s absolutely bloody ridiculous and wish I could stop even as I’m doing it. Never really sad. More if I see an act of kindness, or a wishy-washy commercial. I got a period again New Year’s Eve, making the last cycle exactly 30 days in length (a little short for me, but not unheard of). Once again, only a pinkish discharge, no clotting, light flow, about enough to soak one pad over two days and a smattering on a liner the 3rd day.
I am not getting a positive test, but my period continues to be erratic and FAR too light and short. Especially combined with all these other possible symptoms, it would seem as though I should be pregnant. I am not too worried if I am; I am sure we would be able to manage and do what we need to do. I just want to know!!! Just to be on the safe side, I haven’t smoked or drank alcohol for the last two months. This whole ordeal has been going on for almost three.
If anyone has had similar experiences or any advice I would greatly appreciate it. My doctor seems to think a urine test is the end-all be-all, and assures me I’m “probably fine” and not to worry too much!?!?!?!?!

I know this has been a dreadfully long post, and perhaps I should have sought outside answers earlier so I did not have so much information to relay. But again, if anyone has any tidbits for me, they would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry, one quick note to add:

Since this gent and I had not been together very long when the “oops” happened, I was sure to get a full STD blood screen done 4 weeks afterwards. Everything came back negative, so I highly doubt it is an STD-related infection bringing on my symptoms.

(82) majestic aura says:

Unsure- I think you need to have a blood test done to confirm you are not pregnant, because all of those are textbook pregnancy symptoms to me! Some women do not have positive urine tests and need to have the blood test to confirm. So have that done and good luck!

(83) Tina says:

I was four months pregnant before my periods stopped. I took a pregnancy test on a whim because I was normally 125 pounds, noticed some weight gain and my breats were killing me. Took a test which the pink line appeared instantly and made an appointment with the dr. after the first ultrasound at 14 1/2 weeks, my baby was diagnosed with anencephaly (part of his skull bone and brain werent formed. I ended up having him at 20 weeks, he wasn’t able to thrive.

I do feel for all of you who are scared that you are pregnant but at the same time, if you don’t want a baby then don’t have unprotected sex! hello! you are intelligent and amazing women…use your head! For you teenagers-why are you in such a hurry to lose your virginity? once you lose that precious, innocent part of you you can never get it back and you are willing to just give that to anybody? (I’m not saying all of you do that) I guarantee you that you will more than likely end up regretting it. You are worth waiting for the person who will be in love with you for the rest of your life…and is someone who respects you for you and isn’t just in it for the sex

I was 12 days late getting my period and today i finally got it and it looks like the normal flow for myself. I always get my period every 28 to 29 days, never more or less. They always last 7 days exactly. Last month mine came at the right time but only lasted 3 days and the month before that it came at the right time and only lasted 4 days. It will be interesting to see how long this one lasts. I took a preg. test about 7 days ago and it was neg. I already have 3 children and have had many neg. before with my period and was indeed preg. at the time. What are your thoughts?

(86) Nikki says:

My fiance and I always have unprotected sex. We did it on Christmas and I got my period 2 days later. I was due this month on the 21st, but got it 5 days late. Half of the blood on my tampon is brown while the other half is red and normal. No clots. In the past week, I’ve felt the symptoms pretty hardcore; the nausea, fatigue, increase in appetite, mood swings, frequent urination…I’ve taken 2 home pregnancy tests so far and both have come back negative. I still feel that I’m pregnant though. I know my body, and what I’ve been feeling is not my usual PMS symptoms. I don’t trust home pregnancy tests so much, but I don’t know how much it would cost to get a blood test done. I have no health coverage at the moment. What should I do? Keep using home pregnancy tests that I don’t trust, or spend more money than I can afford at a doctor’s office?

(87) Confused says:

Me and my boyfriend have been dating for goin on 2 years. I’ve been off birth control since October 2006 we started dating eralier that month and had our first sexual encounter with a condom in the middle of the month.Needless to say the condom broke and every since that day we havent used any. My boyfriend and i experienced symtoms of pregnancy but was told by my doctor’s that the depo shot stays in your system for up to a year. I took a home pregnancy test it came back negative. My period finally came on in January 07 and was very heavy and had a foul odor (not the usual) I’m still confused because i gained weight,if i wasnt sleeping my boyfriend was, i craved food in the early morning hours and etc. but i still dont know if i was pregnant or if it was the birth control shot withdrwals? As of today we still havent used condoms and I’m still off of birth control but it seems as if I can’t get pregnant what could the problem be? I have regular periods and we try to have sex when I’m ovulating but no success someone plz help me out.

February 12, 2008 at 7:02 pm
(88) Chrissy says:

the depo shot can stay in your system for up to 18 months after you are off of it, but i got off of it to get pregnant and thought it would take that long of trying but my daughter was actually conceived the same week that I got off the depo. so just because your doctor says it can stay in your system for that long doesnt mean that it always does. My 4 year old daughter is proof of that. On the other hand, if you are trying to conceive, I heard that it takes couples as long as an average of a year of trying sometimes. It took my friend 13 months.

Im 17 and looking foward to going University next year, My boyfriend’s got a place on a football team, and we dont get to see each other often. When we do we try to spend quality time together, once i gave him a hand-job, he came. i don’t know if dey washed his hand or wiped them,as his semen did get on his hands, but about 30mins later he fingered me. From that day ive just not felt right,for example my stomach seems to have increased in size and i use the toilet more frequant.However my period did come 2days late which has never happened to me before, it was quite heavy,so i disguarded the subject of being pregnant, yet i don’t feel normal?? what do you think the cause may be??

Hi, I’m 22 yrs old and my fiancee and I are trying to get pregnant. I’ve been off the birth control pill since december. My last 2 periods have been very irregular, maybe even 40 to 45 days in between time. My period in January lasted 5 days and the february period lasted only 2 days. I’m having abdominal pains but not like cramps sometimes. My breast hurt on the sides. Could I be pregnant or is it all in my head? Does anyone know how long it takes for birth control pills to get out of your system?

(92) Catherine says:

I am in the same boat. Me and my boyfriend have regular unprotected sex atleast every other day (intentionally). But usually daily for the last two months. I had my period on friday seemed normal but no clots. I still have my period but its lighter. Since a couple of days before my period my breasts are really sore. I woke up saturday morning and puked up (sorry!). I’ve had nausea and now my boobs are a bit less sore but i keep getting shooting pains in them and i’ve noticed the veins are really close to the surface on my boobs. My boobs have gotten HUGE.

I know implanation bleeding occurs around the time before or when your period is due. However it is only meant to be very light pink/ brownish discharge. It should only last a few days and only be enough for a panty liner.

I’ve been looking around and this is the the only info i got. It would really help if maybe some mothers would post about there pregnancy experience and whether they had a full on period or not.

(94) Aggrivated says:

Okay, I am sorry to say this, but some of you are complete idiots. Sandy, you can not get pregnant from your BF fingering you with his come on his hands. It just doesn’t work like that.To the rest of the young ones, pre-come pregnancy is HIGHLY rare. I will not say impossible, but RARE. To the rest of you, unless you already have children OR have been PG before, you are not going to feel half of what you are explaining until you are farther along, NOT the day you miss your period. Breasts don’t start to get engorged until about 4-6 weeks AFTER the missed period, so those of you who feel ‘HUGE’ the day you miss your period, it’s you’re imagination. Now, periods during pregnancy, that is possible, but as someone already noted, usually genetic. My mother got hers (FULL Blown) with myself and my little sister (about 3 months). Usually it’s just first trimester, but there are cases (such as my husband’s mother and grandmother) where it lasted 9 months. Depends on the person and family. I would strongly suggest all you teenagers not think about it. A nice little fact for you guys is this: If you Think you are pregnant, or Want it enough, you WILL make your body think it is. In other words, the more you stress or hope, the more you WILL FEEL pregnant. You Will get sore breasts, nausea, and even gain the wait AND LOOK like you are pregnant (full blown). The term for this is Pseudocyesis. Look it up. that’s what you are all doing to YOURSELVES!

(95) Cindy says:

Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex like a month ago and he came inside of me. then everyday last week we had unprotected sex and he came inside me everytime. As the time for my period came around in early march, it never came. But this week I started my period and its kinda heavy. I took a home pregnancy test and it was negative. I haven’t had many symptoms of pregnancy just frequent urination, very few food cravings, and a lil lower back pain. Is it possible for me to still be pregnant even though my period was about 2 weeks late???? please help me!

(96) Maura says:

I am very sorry for the situation many of you are dealing with right now. I am so happy about this site because it will really help me talking to kids and adults about unprotected sex and actually sex in general. I hope I can have another child we are letting whatever happens happen we have one little girl and she is our world. I am supposed to get my period today my last one was longer then usual and 5 days early so we will see. I can only say that SEX=Babies if you have sex no matter if you use all of the protection in the world sex is meant for procreation and for enjoyment not one or the other if you have sex then nature will win if you read this board you will see this even those who use protection, condoms, pills, pulled out early and even had their tubes tied still get pregnant. So Just don’t have sex until you are ready to spend 1 year without sleeping full night, 3 years changing diapers, 10 years of cleaning up vomit and runny noses and the rest of your life worrying to death they are going to get hurt by your mistakes. And please please please if you are not ready to be a parent choose adoption over the other option. I am not screaming pro-life at you but I know at least 3 couples who long to have a child of their own some have been trying for 5 plus years nice couple with Doctors degrees and big houses who can give your child a loving home please choose adoption.

I also am in this very same boat. My husband is a Marine and was deployed to Africa. He was able to come home for three weeks. I had a very light period when he left. Although it was light it last three days as my period normally last. I’m on Yaz currently. But, I feel pregnant. I have two children and I have been pregnant three other times (all miscarriages). So you would think I’d know. But I had a period and I’m on birth control. He left for Africa again two and half weeks ago. I’m very confused! Any thoughts?

Hi, My husband I are wondering if I am pregnant. I usually have a 28 day cycle, but I am now 6 days late. On day 5 I took a EPt pregnancy test, and I got a VERY FAINT positive… On day six I took another, but got a negative and later started spotting without pain. I am normally Very heavy on the first day of my period and have severe cramps and back aches. No pain this time what so ever. What are the chances that I am pregnant? I have had two other babies, and this has never happened to me before. I never bled after I got a positive test… I’m confused. Please help.

(104) Jellyfish says:

Since most people have not gotten a response, here is my situation (you may relate it to your own situation). We were using the pull out method for a while and I ended up pregnant (he says he pulled out, but how would I know). I got pregnant without even trying, not that we are ttc, it seems almost impossible. I have been having my period but have almost felt that I feel the fluttering (fetal movements). I don’t remember it happening that early the first time I was preg but since I am still having my period, it almost seems like a waste to take a hpt.

(105) Carin says:

Well, here’s one. I’ve been continually nauseous for the last 2-3 months, never to the point of vomiting but bad enough that i sit down and curl up for a bit sometimes. Went to the doctor, did a wee test, came back negative. I’ve also had relatively normal periods during this time, although insanely painful. In the last month my breasts have grown at least half a cup size and are really tender. Ive done two more wee tests, still negative and still getting periods that hurt like hell. In between periods I also get what feels like cramps. Also, I’ve been peeing, not more than normal but larger amounts than normal. Going to the doctor tomorrow to ask for a blood test to check. Does anyone think I have substansial reason to be worried? I’d be happy if I was pregnant but worried cause I’ve been drinking and smoking which I would never had done if I had known I was pregnant as I don’t want to endanger my baby.

question for emanuel… i think i might be pregnant..i got bleeding 10 days before my period was to start…very light lasted about 2 1/2 days.. i have been feeling dizzy, moody, tender breasts and very hungry and tired….could i be pregnant?

(107) Ally says:

Okay, So here’s my situation. I started taking the birth control to regulate my period. I usually skip 1-3months, but when I had it for like 4 months straight, I would get my period by the end of the month. Sooo! I didn’t really start the pill the correct way, meaning I got the RX and just started it right away. I stopped taking it on June 17th, got my period on the 18th. I started the new pack on June 21st, I had intercourse on June 22nd&23rd. I stopped the pill on the 24th. And I got my period again today, June 27th. Is it more likely that I am pregnant? or not?

I thank you very much for taking time to read this, and for any feedback.

(108) Mari says:

I had my period for a whole month straight but it’s more a brown color not red. Two weeks into the month, I bleed (red) extremely heavy with chunks that my pad actually felt as heavy as a wet baby diaper. It also went down the side of my leg. I was scared. Here and there I’ll get a sharp pain in the vagina. Sorry for being disgusting but I rather give details then none so maybe someone can figure this out. I have a doctor’s appointment this week to check if all is okay. A lot of people in my job thinks I’m pregnant because I eat a lot, gained a little weight and I have a small belly (my belly is always flat, I’m a petite woman). They say I look two months. I haven’t taken a home test either. Does anyone know more or less what could be the problem?

I had my period on the 18, of last month. Had sex on the 3rd, and 5th, of this month, and started a heavy flow on the 6th. It’s not painful I only had a little cramp on the 6th, with a heavy flow, followed by a light flow on the 7th. Why its this happening?

I had sex with a friend in March of ’08 now it’s July of ’08. i have had my period since then but i’ve also been tired more and kind of sick feeling like a stomach flu but for months. i’ve put on weight and just recently started noticing a-lot of firmness in my belly. i just attributed the weight gain and tiredness to depression but now i’m concerned it might be something else. i’m kind of scared to take a pt at this point because i’ve been smoking and drinking and just generally living my life for the past 4 months.

Hmm..My breast was sore for june 29 – july 4 and I though that I will get my period the next day. So it was in the morning of july 5 and I needed to go pee. When I wipe it down I sw a pinkish spot on the toilet paper. I was like okay this look nothing like period, but i put a pad. 2 days had past by but there no period on the pad and my breast still sore. So I check my breast if there any changes and it did. My breast feel fuller and my areola kind a bigger with goosebump on it. But I decided to wait until july 11 and took the hpt and the test came out negative. So I still wait until July 13 and I decided to have an intercourse with my hubby. The next day July 14, I had my period until now with mild cramp. My breast not sore anymore but it still feel fuller with goosebump on my areola. I am so confuse right now because I read so many people question and answer online. None of the question or answer still don’t solve it. Can i still be pregnant eventhought i have my period?

(114) Lynn says:

Okay, So I’m not sure if I’m pregnant or not. I had my period 3 days after I had sex(which was actually a week early).. So I wasn’t that worried at first. But this month my Period is over a week late! and I’m starting to get worried. Now none of the women in my family has ever had any type of Normal Pregnancy symptoms… And so far I have not had many. I have had to pee more than usual, but I’m thinking that might be because I’ve been really thirsty lately, so I’ve been drinking a lot more water and tea than I normally do…. So that might be connected to that… Plus I’ve been tired a lot lately and sleeping later than I normally do…

Do you think that maybe I should go get an EPT? or should I wait a little longer to see if my period is just late?

Then I got my period on the 16th, so I dismissed the whole thing. I have just started trying to get pregnant and have been useing an ovulation kit, but i am not ovulating, which has me second guessing if I could be pregnant after all.

(121) Tracy says:

I broke up with my boyfriend 6 weeks ago.. He had the snip but had only did one test and needed to do another test before he knew he was safe. We mostly used condoms but he liked to not use them till almost the end.. Well a couple of times he just pulled it out quickly but once he pulled it out and said ‘Oh that was close’ and when i cleaned myself up there wasn’t anything there and my body was dry..
The last time I saw him i came on and have had another period since then but they have been really light compared to what they were and I am normally heavy on my second day which I have not been.
But for the past 2 weeks I have felt sick from half hour after I have got up from bed till i go to bed. Im tired all the time and can sleep in the afternoon for up to 3 hours sometimes.. My stomache feels really bloated and uncomfortable.. I have no energy either.
I had a blood test for diabetes a couple of weeks ago and it came back normal.. Would that have picked up if im pregnant or not?
Im very worried….

I just wanted to say that it’s ok to have made a mistake. Just learn from it and do not repeat it. Do not do what someone else who doesn’t know you says to do or listen to anyone who doesn’t have your best interests at heart. If you are pregnant, only YOU know what is right for you to do for your life. Anyone who is a TRUE Christian knows that what you decide is between you and God, NO ONE else. He will forgive you for what you have done and what you may do. That is the wonderful God He is.

I wanted to post because you can get pregnant without actual intercourse and even if he pulls out. Always use condoms, for prevention of pregnancy and STDs. they make them thin enough now that it won’t distract what you are doing or disrupt your pleasure. I took several pregnancy tests when I was pregnant with my son and they told me I wasn’t pregnant. Sometimes there isn’t enough HCG (pregnancy hormone) to make the test show positive. It didn’t show positive until I took one in a hospital. HTH! God bless.

(127) Another Courtney says:

Alright, my turn. I’ve been having unprotected sex for nearly two months (I know, smart me) and have been off birth control for almost three. At first I thought I might be pregnant, but that was more for the fact I knew I’d been having sex. Then I realized I was just being paranoid. This theory was backed up by me getting a period a week and a half later. It’s now been another week and a half since that menstrul cycle and I’m starting to smell phantom smells like pumpkin, mango, and mac and cheese. Also I’ve only experienced one day of what may be considered morning sickness, but I’m not sure. I didn’t vomit (sorry for the graphics), but I experienced and excrusiating pain in my abdomin and severe nausea resulting in dry heaving. Also I’ve been experiencing what I can only describe as hot flashes, sometimes enough to cause me to sweat and feel too dizzy to stand, and no one else is hot around me. Occasisonally I feel bloated as well. Many of these symptoms come and go, mainly the light queaziness and “hot flashes” are the ones that stay. I am too nervous to take a test, and I want to know if it’s something I should be concerned with enough to go and buy one. Has anyone else had any experiences like this so soon after a period? Or perhaps could I have been pregnant all along and still gotten it? Or could it be something else?

Ok, I couldn’t figure out where to post my own question, so I figured here was as good a place as any… Um.. I had a period about 2 weeks ago, it came a week early at that. But, it was like a normal period, it was by no means just spotting, only it only lasted 4 days, when mine usually last 7. well, I have nearly all of the symptoms of being pregnant, and a positive test, but I am worried about that period. Is it possible to have a regular period and still be pregnant?

Lulu, I have had two pregnancies and with both I had a period for the first 2 months. The first pregnancy I experienced light bleeding but in the second it was very normal. I am now experiencing symptoms of pregnancy and after being 5 days late on my period it just came again since I have been experiencing the symptoms… I hope this helps!

I have also been feeling really nauseous and never hungry anymore. Plus I’m gaining some weight. For the past 4 months I’ve been bleeding every month like normal but the first month I was a week late but the bleeding was real light in color. It’s been this way for the other 3 months too. It’s more like I’m spotting and this month I have no cramping. Can I be pregnant?

My boyfriend and I had sex a week before my period was due.We did it good and plenty that night. My period was due the following Friday, but never showed. It finally came on Thursday of the next week. Now we are trying to conceive, but I am curious as to why I am bleeding. I have only known a few women who got their periods and still were prego. I would like to know is it a possibility that I could be. My breasts are tender and sore, I get nausea with the scent of certain smells and in the morning, sometimes during the day too, urinate more than I have before and according to my co-workers, getting cranky and moody. Please someone helo me and let me know what is going on and what I should do. Thank you.

(138) Renee says:

Hmm, if you are 16 why do you WANT to be pregnant? Anyways, from the 15-18 of October me and my fiance were having unprotected sex. I usually get my period at the end of the month. I should have gotten it around the 28th, but I didn’t get it until the 1st of November. It was fairly short, only 4 days which is normal but I did not seem to have my normal horrifyingly painful cramps. It was the normal amount of blood, but I have been feeling a little nausious lately throughout the days which had started around the 26th of last month. My nipples have also been a little bit flaky and seem a teeny bit darker. Sometime this week, I am going to go take a test. I’m very scared about what the results may be, especially if they are positive.

Oh yes, also I had a friend who had a normal period for the first 5 months of her pregnancy, Michelle and LuLu, if that is any help for you gals. My advice would be to take a blood test at your doctors office. =)

(142) Anonymous says:

Ok this is my problem. I have been sexually active since I was 15 years of age. I found out that I had an STD maybe 6 months after that. ok lets rewind to a couple of years earlier when i thought i wanted to lose my virginity…he stuck his penis in my vagina, not sure how many times but i am sure that he did not ejaculate nor did we go all the way because of the pain. So we were dating for about 8 years. In those years he gave me an STD twice, Gon and Chla. What I want to know is could i have had gotten somethung the first time tried and carried it until i got my first pap which was 2 years before? And when the doc tested me could he see that I had PID. I’m worried that I may not be able to have kids. Although I was on birth control for most of sexual years 16-22 on and off. But i have been officially off for 2 years. NO BABY my whole sexual years…could there be a problem?

Had an std (Ghon-chla) when i was younger. Not sure how long. First sexual experience was a 13 didnt go all the way although BF stuck it in. Started having sex at 15 found out about first std couple of months after. 18 found out about another. The thing is i dont know how long i had the first one befoe testing. Been on BC on and off from age 16-21 and then again at age 23 for a minut. 26 and been off BC for over two years and still no pregnancy. I think something is wrong with me like PID? and advice

(144) Wynter says:

I’m sixteen and usually a responsible young adult. But recently I’ve started to think I’m pregnant. I’ve been dating the same guy for two years and I’ve talked to him about this. If I am pregnant we are ready to take this on and we know its not going to be easy. I haven’t said anything to my parents yet becuase I want to be sure. I’ve had what I think is my period but I’m not sure. I’ve had multiple symptoms of being pregnant. The only one I really haven’t had was morning sickness. I do wake up feeling like I’m going to get sick, but never end up getting sick. I’m scared that if I am pregnant something is wrong. I’ve taken a home test and it came back negative but I’ve been doing my research and apparently it happens a lot. I’d like to go to the doctor to take a blood test there but I dont even know what doctor to go see. I don’t have a regular OB/GYN or anything. For my physicals and things we just go to our primary physician. But he’s my uncle and I wouldnt be comfortable going there to take tests. Our womens clinic requires that you know your social security number and I have no clue what mine is. I really have no other option then to wait it out. I’ve lost pretty much all of my friends becuase of this. I have another test that I’m taking in the morning. Hopeuflly that will help me a lot more. If you have any advice or information for me I will gladly accept it.

My previous period was only 3 days and light, I am use to 5-7 days. Last monday I was suppose to start, I waited till friday and I took three tests, All possitive. (and girls I was on Birth Control, Yaz actually.) I missed one dosage 3 months ago.

Now, My question is, Do I count from the day of my last 3 day period, or am I further along than 5 weeks?

my husband and i have been trying on and off for a while now and we are only 26/27 years old… you think it would be easier! I was certain i was pregnant because we had a really great time celebrating election night and then two weeks later i started spotting for 2-3 days, then the light pinky discharge turned into actual bleeding just like my period but only lasted for 2-3 days, then it went back to pinky discharge for 2-3 days. before i started to bleed i took a first response test which came out negative, i’m still getting nausea, sore breats and in the last two days i’ve had 4 pimples break out on my face (not normal) i want to take another test, but maybe it is still to soon. any thoughts?

(149) Amie says:

I am 27. Last fall I had a misscariage. Since then I have been seeing a fertility specialist and I have polycystic ovaries. I don’t ovulate regularlly because my hormones are off. I took about 10 days of hormone shots and then one shot to make me ovulate. Nine days later I started what I think might have been my period. The only thing is that it was almost all just blood, lasted two days and was a little bit lighter than usual. I took a pregnancy test 6 days after the period started which would be 15 days after ovulation. The test was negative, but I have the same feelings that I had last year before I found out I was pregnant. My breast are very sore, firmer and fuller. I am trying to figure out if the test could have been wrong or if it could be the hormone shots that I had taken. I don’t think it would be the shots because I did not feel like this when I was taking them and it has been over 2 weeks since the last shot. Anyone have any thoughts. Thanks

November 29, 2008 at 12:47 pm
(150) Ashleigh says:

You may be pregnant. You cant always trust home pregnancy tests. They are usually right but in some cases they are not right. The hormone shots may have something to do with it also. you never know what will happen to your body when your hormones get jacked with. so.. what i would suggest is go to your dr. and get a pregnancy test from him/her. preferably a blood test because alot of people never show the pregnancy hormone in uring tests.. and then go from there. I hope everything works out for you.

Now, my issue is that i have been having unprotected sex for a few months now, and since august my periods have been completely messed up. i havent had one come on time since then. they seem to be getting later and later. This month i was supposed to start on the 11th, but did not start until yesterday (the 28th). so that made it 17 days late. i had no signs that it was coming because usually i start cramping and about 30 minutes later i start, but not this time. it just kinda snuck up on me. Anyway, during most of october and november i slowly started getting all the signs of pregnancy, and didnt even realize them until i was about a week late. i didnt get morning sickness, only night time, and i only felt sick if i sat up too long or laid on my side in bed which is the only way i can sleep..oh and my sense of smell is amazing now. which can be bad when it comes to the discusting smells. when i stood up, i got faint, if i stood too long i got dizzy. my breasts are very firm, very sensitive, and appear very full. my moods have been OFF THE WALL. i am not sensitive to most things that women are sensitive to but oh my gosh…. my boyfriend, the poor guy, would say one word and i would get on the defensive, any thing you could think of i got mad or upset about. very strange. i do know that in my family it is common for you to have your period for a few months with your first child, (all the women have)and they didnt even know they were pregnant because they didnt pay attention like i do. well.. between the 11th and the 28th of november i took 3 pregnancy tests (first response) and they all came out negative, and then i started my period yesterday, the flow is normal, but still feel all the symptoms from before. i know it is possible that i may still be pregnant but i was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to find out with out going to the dr. i dont have my insurance card. my parents kept it when i moved out so i cant go to the dr.

November 29, 2008 at 1:33 pm
(151) Amie says:

Thank you. Is there anyway you can get your insurance card. Can you make up a reason that you need it because I think if you believe that the pregnancy test is wrong that you should go to the doctors. If you can’t get your insurance card maybe you can find a free clinic or one that except donations. If these are not an option then talk to a pharmasist about what would be the best test for you to take. Hope you can figure this out.

Hey guys! Just curious what you all think. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for two years. I have always had very regular periods (28 days apart, lasting app 5 days each), except for this last month. I had a regular cycle start on 10/17, then I had a little bit of spotting around 11/3 or so. I had a lot of the symptoms of pregnancy and was hopeful that it was finally happening. When 11/14 came and went without the start of my monthly cycle, I took some home pregnancy tests (one on late day #1, and another on day #7)-both negative. Then I got what seemed like a normal cycle on 11/25 (11 days late). It lasted the normal 5 days, with one slightly lighter day, but otherwise normal. Should I take another test? I have noticed that some women get what appear to be “regular periods” during pregnancy, so I guess I’m still holding out some hope that I may finally be a mom :) I would appreciate any comments :)

Hey this is Kelsey and I’m 13 years old.My boyfriend and I have been together 6 monthes.I got off of my period on November 13.I lost my virgintity to my boyfriend the next day.I was very scared because it was unplanned and in the moment.It was unprotected.He was going to pull out but he didn’t.So I counted up to when my period should be (mine is about 22 days) and it is today.Some people say it is only 4 weeks and too early to tell but I have many symptons.I got up this morning and got my period but surprisingly it only lasted 30minutes-1 hour.Now it completely gone.My breasts are tender.I have like a lump or a “pooch” on my lower stomach and it is firm.I have a doctors appointment comming up,but I am 13 and I am anxious to see if I am a teen mother.This whole experience is hard and heartbreaking.

There seems to be no replies to any of the questions…. I would say to many of you to SEE YOUR DOCTOR!!! And also make sure you are tested for HIV and STDs! Some of the described symptoms such as abnormal discharge, Nausea, vomiting could be signs of an STD, which left untreated could have a devastating affect. PLEASE all you teenage girls…USE PROTECTION!! You are too young to have babies! I had my daughter at 20 and that was hard enough, even with a husband and support. Please, think about your actions and what one unprotected time could leave you with…baby, STD, HIV ,all

I started what I thought was a normal period 2 days ago but usually by now I wouldn’t be cramping or anything and I’m still cramping and my breasts are still very sore. I know these can be normal PMS symptoms but its not normal for me. I’m scared to take a test because I’m sure it will say negative but I know somethings not right. Please help!!!

Very interesting to reading those comments. Here I’m 28 years old and having 3rd baby on way. My last period was October and it was short and light period. Then last month I have no period for two weeks that I am freaking out and went to get EPT and it turned out positive because I took birth control pills everyday but of course I did missed sometimes. I went to see OB Doctor and took sonogram and found out that I am 3 months pregnancy not two months. That mean my last normal period was in September and I did had short period during pregnancy! We didn’t planned for 3rd this time! I was having tube tied surgery next few weeks. Now I had to canceled it and will go thru 3rd one till born. Due in June :o )
I thought to share with you of my story. It can happen to have short period during pregnancy. So good luck!

December 19, 2008 at 12:26 pm
(162) dani says:

Here’s my story. and if anyone can help, please kindly comment on this. I’m 19

I had protected sex in early NOV. But i did it when my period was ending(light spotting)
And i had just broken my virginity! since it was my first time, plus the fact that my period just ended and we were using a condom, i assume that i wont get pregnant, it was quite unlikely.
So about 2 weeks later, i had my period(phew), had the normal sore breasts, and then my normal flow. lasted the normal 4-6 days.
Now its dec 19, and a couple of days ago, i noticed my stomach getting quite bloated, my appetite all this while had been normal, NO CRAVINGS. I eat 3 meals a day, and get quite full fast, which is very normal for me. About the thirst, i am not really sure because i dont drink much water in general(more soft drinks), but i do feel some dryness occasionally. I pee normal, not that often, maybe 3 to 4 times a day.
My next period is due soon, perhaps by christmas, or later. NO morning sickness. NO sore breast right now.

The only thing is that for the past 2 weeks my digestive system is giving me some trouble. i would get a bit of diarrhea, then i would not pass for 1 to 2 days. (might be cause i havent been eating any fruits for awhile)

My symptoms are quite similar to everyone else, and i dont really know wat to think. because its difficult to comprehend wats happening to me right now. especially when i started to think i might be pregnant.

I might have put on a bit of weight, but i havent checked, just can see from my stomach area. ALSO, i had recently started to do situps, and pushups, and some light arm and leg toning, just to get in shape, before thinking that i might be pregnant. but now i do think that i might be, i cannot afford this right now.

anyone with any medical expertise please share some advice and comments. thanks. this is important!

Last month i had my period but it was irregular, for six days it kept coming and stopping, i never had a full day of a straight menstrual flow and it was not heavy, dark at time and bright red, but not heavy. I have had some symptoms, on and off breast tenderness, bloating and still bloated, nausea and vomiting and tiredness and back pain. This month i got my period again this time it was a regular flow that lasted four days, still not heavy, but dark at times and bright red at times as well. Still have nausea and vomiting and my stomach is still bloated and still have back pains. Again still have some breast pain, just wndering if it is possible that i can be pregnant. Someone asked me if i was and told me it was showing in my face, so just curious.

I am having the same situation as a lot of you are. I had sex around the 26th of December and a couple days after that where the guy (dont worry it wasnt a random person or anything lke that) he ejaculated in me and my period always starts in the very beginning of the month. I was almost certain that I should’ve been pregnant, but then my period came. I was throwing up a couple days after the sex and had diarrhea… What do you guys think about this? Does anyone think I should be pregnant?

i was pregnant for 3 months and a week and i had periods all three months of my pregnancy. i didnt even know i was pregnant until i was 2 and a half months pregnant cause i still had full blown periods just a few day shorter. only how i knew i was pregnant because of morning sickness and breast tenderness and just feeling big. and i just thought i gained weight. but yeah its true you can get pregnant and still have a period.

i’ve seen it answered on here that you can have your period and still be pregnant. if maybe someone had my symptoms you could help me. i am on my period for 2days now but started 3days early,not normal. my breasts are sore (not to bad but noticable) and swollen as of a week and a half now. it usually is the week before my period never during and they have never been swollen. im sure this is just wishful thinking because my husband and i are trying to concieve but hey i cant help it, maternity in my jeans (and name) can u take an AHPT while on your period? help or with help on concieving matern_enl@live.com

(170) Clare says:

There seem to be a lot of very frightened girls and women on this website. I am in a similar situation – my last two periods have taken twice as long to start, are much darker and lighter with less pain. I do not have unprotected sex, and am in a long term relationship, and have taken the contraceptive pill. However, nothing is definite, and I have taken the pill late before. I am worried about pregnancy. I will start today with home pregnancy tests, then will go to the doctors for urine and blood tests. I want to be SURE I’m not pregnant so I can make informed decisions. I would also be very paranoid about subjecting any baby to my cotntinued use of the contraceptive pill. I would advise ANY girl or woman worried about their situation to go to a doctor or clinic and do EVERY test to make sure. As previously advised by other people on this site, some women show up as negative on urine tests. Only a blood test will tell you for sure. DO NOT WAIT. Do not worry. Just go to a doctors. Phone right now, be provactive, positive and find a friend or family member to talk things through with. If you’re young, DO NOT consider a lack of pregnancy in this case as an excuse to have unprotected sex again. Be smart girls for your own sake. xx

I am getting a little bit worried and would really appreciate some advice.

I am 23 and have been living with my boyfriend for almost a year.

I have been on the combnied pill since I was 16 and have never experienced any problems, the reason for going on the pill was that my periods were very heavy any painful.

About 2 yeas ago, my periods started to become lighter and less painful. Over the past year they have became slgihtly less painful again but in the last 2/3 months, have also become slightly lighter.

Although I have been on the pill since I was 16, we always use additional contraception as we both feel too young to have children and want to furhter our careers, and experience things together before starting a family!

Over the last 5 months, there have been 2/3 ocasions where we have not used the additional contraception.

December’s period started a couple of days early with just a tiny bit of ‘spotting’ which then stopped but a couple of days later it started as normal. January’s period started as normal except I experienced much more pain and felt much more moody than normal.

Since my period finsihed (last week), my breasts have been feeling quite heavy, I still feel a dull ache in my lower back and I have been really moody – I know there is no reason for it and so am now a bit worried that I could be pregnant.

I also feel that I have put some weight on around my waist and thighs over the last month or so but am not sure if this is just down to Christmas!!

Any advice/comments would be appreciated.

I was wondering if anyone can help me, i’m 20 yrs old and me and my boyfriend are trying for a baby and have been for a few months now since i came off the pill. However, my last 2 periods have been exceptionally short (3 days or so) with a couple of days spotting. This is not normal for me, plus I have been tired, having very strange food cravings, been needing the toilet a lot more and had heartburn at night quite a bit. I havnt vomitted but feel sick when i wake up and sometimes in the evenings. Is it still possible i’m pregnant even with these short periods?? It is more than spotting for a couple of days but not anywhere near as heavy as normal. Any advice would really be appreciated.

(179) Lisa says:

Yes it is possible to have a full period during an entire pregnancy. I know this for certain because during my own pregnancy a nurse told me she has seen this in her practice as a nurse. It is not common but it happens. And I read in the news about a Newfoundland woman who had a regular period throughout a pregnancy and didn’t even know she was pregnant until she gave birth.

(186) Baby For Valentines Day? says:

on jan 23rd me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex. i feel like three weeks is too soon to have any major changes, but then again i am very uneducated on the symptons and signs of pregnancy, seeing as how this was my first time having sex. For the last two days now my back has been killing me. so much so that it was wrapping around and causing pain to my boobs.(more under them then anything) i have tried everything from laying down to medicine to popping it a million times. my sophmore year i had breast pains that are identical to this but i related it to a weight gain that i wasnt used to supporting on my body. i recently went on a diet and lost fifteen pounds but stopped and gained it back and more. so i was assuming that this weight gain was causing the pains again. but this morning i started my period, and since it was a week after my last one that i had sex it is right on time. but it is heavier, much heavier and from some of the posts ive read on here prego people get lighter periods. but this morning when i noticed i started the blood was brown and as the day went on it got darker and heavier then i have ever had it before. i use tampons and within two hours of changing one it was overflowing into my panties. i went out to eat tonight and did not eat very much but since then i have been feeling miserable, my stomach felt so bloated and in so much pain that i tried to puke thinking that i ate too much somehow. i told my mother about my unusual period and she said it sounded like a miscarriage. i read some symptons of miscarriages and it fits pretty well with what ive been feeling for the past couple days. i went to check my tampon to see if the period was still continuing and it is, but it is clotting brown on the tampon. if it turns out to be a miscarriage how long will the bleeding last or is it a normal period? also after reading symtpons of pregnancy in the first month, i have had many. at kroger today i smelled flowers more strongly then i ever food even at the back of the store i could still smell them and it was making me sick. i also felt sick smelling a womans purfume and even the french whore purfumes have no affect on me. i noticed a thick discharge in my panties a couple days in a row before this period started. i dont know if my nipple color has changed but i do know that they are throbbing in pain. is there anyway that i could be pregnant, or was at one point pregnant. and even though im on my period right now, does the fact that it is so extreme and that i had mood swings and pms symptons a week before it started(cramps) which i have never had before mean anything?

Hello, my name is Lynn I have a situation my last LMP was December 29th of 2008 and haven’t had my period for the whole month of January. I had gotten a period on Feb. 19th til Feb. 21st 2009 which the period wasn’t normal at all. I’m currently taking Prenate Elite vitamins which I am trying to conceive so do this mean I could be up to 7 weeks pregnant or not?

March 4, 2009 at 10:26 pm
(188) Danielle says:

K ladies if you have had unprotected sex you MAY be pregnant. If you miss a pill or the condom breaks you MAY be pregnant. You can get pregnant at any time, the closer to your period you are the more likely you are to get pregnant if you have unprotected sex or your birth control fails. This is when you EGG is passing through and you are highly likely to get pregnant within the week before your period. How do you know if you are pregnant. Missed periods aren’t the only thing to consider. Lots of things can cause a missed period. Stress, excercise, diet. etc. You really can’t rely on your period as a surefire way to determine pregnancy. During the first week or so of pregnancy you go through implatation stage which sometimes causes the same symptoms as your period. You may misread these symptoms as your menstral period. Tender breast frequent unination are also some clues that you could be pregnant. You may want to take a pregnancy test 10 days after your expected period. Be sure to do the test correctly and no matter what test in the AM. don’t drink a tonne of water before the test. Just pee on it in the AM and lye it down on the counter with the cap on… and voila….you MAY get your results. But just because the pregnancy test says NEGATIVE/POSITIVE doesn’t mean your out of the water. If tested 3-4 times before getting a postive result. Thats due to my irregular periods. With my first daughter i didn’t even know i was pregnant till i was 3 1/2 months…and yes you should experience some weight gain but maybe 5lbs…so it easily went un-noticed. With my second daughter i knew at 10 weeks and with my 3rd daughter i knew at 6 weeks….I defintely began to be able to read my bodies signals of pregnancy. Although a missed period is a good indication of pregnancy, you shouldn’t assume that you are pregnant. THE ONLY SURE FIRE WAY TO KNOW IF YOU ARE PREGNANT OR NOT IS TO GET A BLOOD TEST. If you miss more than 2 periods and are still NEGITIVE, it could be and indication of something much more serious than pregnancy. So remember not every one experiences pregnancy symptoms. And not all symptoms indicate pregnancy. If you suspect that you are pregnant you should get to a health care provider immediately so they can begin the prenatal care that you and the baby will need. Don’t feel ashamed or embarassed they deal with situations like this daily. Also if this is an unplanned pregnancy you only have, depending on where you live about 12 weeks to get an abortion ( people don’t hate…its advice, not opinion) but there are also better alternatives like adoption, there are plenty of loving people out there that would be willing and happy to take your baby and give your baby a good happy home. But the best thing to do to avoid an unplanned pregnancy is to use protection….double up condoms and birth control. any guy who isn’t willing to use it isn’t worth the time of day. Not only are you risking pregnancy but some very serious STD’s. Unless you are in a long term happy stable monogamous relationship….NO UNPROTECTED SEX EVER!!! next time you might not be dealing with a possible pregnancy scare it could be AIDS.

And for the girls who are vigins, your not pregnant. If you laid in dry semen your not pregnant. If you wiped up with a towel that was used for wiping semen if the semen was dry your not pregnant.

FYI semen can live for up to 72 hours in favorable conditions. If your finger had wet semen on it you could be pregnant. Semen near the vagina you could be pregnant.

Get some blood tests done to be sure!!!!

Good Luck Girls!!!

My boyfriend and I have been trying to get pregnant. We had unprotected sex about two months ago, I was sure that would do it but I wasn’t sure, right after that I had a very very light period compared my others, but I still thought that was my normal period. Once I stopped worrying about that, I suddenly was late for my next period, my periods always come on the exact same day everytime. My boyfriend and I decided to try it one more time unprotected the other night, the night right after that my period finally came, but again its not that bad. Am I just imagining things or could this possibly just be something for being pregnant? There is no way this is normal! HELP!!?

Hmm. I would say 3 things to so many of the posts:

1 – yes, you can have bleeding the looks like a period
2 – please don’t be afraid to take a home test and then go see a doc if it’s positive or if you feel like you need to
3 – stop having unprotected sex with men who aren’t your husband (especially the teenagers)… that’s just gross

My heart goes out to so many of you! May you have the best in life.

(200) MJ says:

So. Here’s my story. I’m 24 years old. After being off the pill for 2 years, I was planning on having sex with my boyfriend (long distance), first time. So I started taking the pill 7 days before the planned sex encounter. I was expecting my period on or around March 12, which was the date he was coming to see me. He came inside me probably 3-4 times. We had sex March, 12, 13, 14, and 15th. I didn’t get my expected period until March 17th, but it was weird. 2 days of thick brown discharge, then third day it turned normal and I seemed to have a normal period. Oh I stopped taking the pill as soon as I got signs of getting my period. I’ve had a bit of brown discharge at the END of my period, but never at the beginning like this. It is now March 30th, and this morning I woke up and ten minutes after getting out of bed a wave of nausea hit me. I walked into the kitchen and someone was cooking ham and it almost made me run and bolt. I rarely ever get nauseous. Also I’ve had a headache for 2 days, but I do get cluster headaches sometimes so I’m not counting that yet. I’m also feeling very tired. I took a preg test today, but it was after I had drank a whole bunch of water and it was negative. I’m bloated, but it doesnt feel squishy, my abdomen is rather hard. I’ve been up for 4 hours but keep yawning and just want to go to sleep. Could be the pill…Oh yeah, I forgot the pill I took had expired a year ago, silly me I didn’t know that till after.

Anyways…I’ll take another test tomorrow morning and see if anything shows up. Keep you guys posted.

(201) Maria says:

I have 3 kids and I知 very fertile (I got pregnant with my 2nd child on the patch and my 3rd child from pre-come and I found out I was pregnant with #3 by accident 1 week before my period was due). About 4-5 months ago my period was 1 week late; I didn稚 think anything of it because my husband got a vasectomy because I知 so fertile. Then I noticed I the headaches like all the time, very moody, my appetite increased, lots of gas and back pain, a little nausea in the morning, heavier breast( but no change in color), but the biggest thing is I知 exhausted. I can sleep for 10 hours and still need a nap in the middle of the day. But with all that, I thought that it is from my busy work life with kids, school, husband and other activities in my home and out of the home. Until, last month I felt what I though was a baby move, but I brushed it off as gas. Then last week, I went to school for a test (the first time I was able to sit down that day) and I felt 3 movements in my stomach near my pelvis. When I felt them that first thought that came to me was BABY. Every since then I feel movement but only when I sit down. I feel like I知 going crazy. Also, I have gotten my periods every months for 4 days but this month it was on for 7 day (this have NEVER happened) and I took a pregnancy test but it was negative. Plus, my mom said that she got her period with during her pregnancy but what is the chance of me being pregnant if I知 still getting my periods and my husband got a vasectomy?

And my 3 year old lies on my stomach and says BABY????? I知 totally freaked out.

i was wondering about my period……it had been coming in the middle of the month (always has) and in february it came right after valentine’s day….2 weeks later (first week of march) it came again! i am confused…..i feel pregant (i know because i am a mother of a 14 month old plus i’ve had 2 previous miscarriages and 1 abruptio placentae which occurred @ 21 weeks…..the misscarriages and AP happened before i became pregnant with my daughter). I personally know someone who had her period (she explained that it was not different from her regular periods) during her ENTIRE pregnancy with her son William, he’s a doll-baby too. So i know it is possible to have them and i was wondering if i could be…..i have the flutters like i did with my daughter when i could finally truly feel her moving around (which was around 5/6 months). and if it’s that far along then would a pregnancy test still be able to work?

(207) Riss says:

Ok, i know no one ever posts replies to any of these but i would very much appreciate if you would give me some kind of advice or answer. for the past month my boyfriend and i have been having more sex than usual, he only puts a condom on when he feels he is very close. i started to notice one week that my breast hurt every time he or anything touched them and it really hurt when he would go in deep having sex. this has never happened before. i started getting bad lower back pains and nausea. my nausea would even wake me up in the middle of the night. i know sometimes close to my period i get slightly tender breasts but i wasn’t supposed to get my period for another 3 weeks. also for a a couple days after the sex was hurting i has pains in my lower abdomen but they stopped after a day or 2.

i just got my period and it’s a week early, i’m always regular and it hasn’t been the same as usual. excuse me for being graphic but when i get my period i’m in serious pain and get constant diarrhea. this time almost no cramping at all and no diarrhea

i’m still feeling all the other symptoms and now absolutely exhausted even though i get at least 7-8 hours of sleep a night.

i thought i was possibly pregnant but the period made me confused, but i’ve read on here people have had their period while they were pregnant.

i know this was long but please some advice/feedback would be extremely helpful.
i just need to know what’s going on with my body

Thank You!

(208) Wendy says:

I am 24 and have 4 kids. Up until now my pregnancies have been normal. I have nursed all 4 of my kids and have had my periods as normal after delivery. My youngest is about 8 months old and I have stopped nursing him during the day. Only nurse at night. I had my last period on March 12th. But before my period I started getting nausus and headachs. My husband and I were planning on having 1 more baby so I thought I might be pregnant. I had a day of maybe 2-3 times of pink in the tp. Then my period came lighter than normal but lasted 6-7 days. My symptoms have not gotten better since before I had my period they have only gotten worse. I am 2 days late for my period this month, and i’m wondering if I could have been pregnant already when I had my period last month. I forgot to mention that my pregnancy before my yougest, I was taking hpt’s for 2 months and they were negative. But felt like I was. Then accidentally mixed my husbasnds meds with my excedrin (handed him the wrong one) (he takes Xanex) and had a golf ball sized clot 2 days later. I went to the dr. and I was 2 months prego and misscarried by mixing the meds. So once again my home tests are neg. Can anyone help me. I don’t want to go to the dr. until I’m sure there is something going on cause I have no insurance. Do you think I could be 7 weeks or so prego?

(211) Hopefull says:

in February of this year i had a pregnancy termination. i did not wait the whole two weeks recommended by the doctor until having sex again, instead i had unprotected intercourse with my fiancee who did not know that i was pregnant, or that i had a termination, four days later. the next week or so, i experienced lower abdominal pain when attempting to have sex, foul odor, and mucus-y discharge. i went to the doctor and i was treated for an inflammation. from then the pain died out, except for the occasional cramping. after wards my fiancee and i decided on having a child, and so we started trying to do so. since then i have had two “periods” with the first one being EXTREMELY light, and lasting about only 3 days with no clots as opposed to my normal 5-6 days period. the second one was a normal flow, and had also lasted three days, but on the second day that it ended i bled for about an hour. i have started to gain weight excessively, my breasts are semi-tender as well as my abdomen, i experience nausea while brushing my teeth (like i did during my other pregnancies; one child, two terminations), white discharge and frequent urination, but yet the home-urine pregnancy tests come out negative. could i be pregnant? or could it be in my mind since i really want to have a baby with my fiancee? please someone help!!!

(217) Roseann says:

ok well on January I had a pregnancy termination(personal issues) after that I’ve been trying to get pregnant, though I would only get negative results(feb.march and april)…my last period was on april 3, and it usually takes 28-31 days for my next period. about three weeks ago I would frequently go to the restroom…I thought I had an overactive bladder, I had light spotting, I told my mom about it and she said I might be pregnant, so I took a pregnancy test but it was negative. So last week I was expexting my period around the 5th again but nothing came. I waited about two more days and I took a pregnancy test…the result was positive…I was sooo happy…I even went to the doctor and the urine preg, test showed a very faint positive result. I got an ultrasound but there was nothing to see because it was too early in the pregnancy. the day after I went to the doctor I noticed light spotting when I would wipe myself. I thought maybe it was normal… the next day I started what now appears to be a normal period….so now I’m so confused…am I having a miscarriage??…can anyone please give me some advice??anything will help…I was really excited about being pregnant, but now I’m really scared to take a preg. test and it appears negative. or visit the doc and for him to say I’m not pregnant and had a miscarriage…is there any hope of me still being pregnant??

(221) Scared and Confused says:

I’m not really good at sharing my life experiences or anything like that.. But right now, I really have no where else to turn. I’m 16 years old and have been [foolishly] having unprotected sex with my fiance[yes, I know, I'm young]. For abou the last month now, I’ve been feeling really.. different though. I got my period last month around the 24th, but I didn’t have cramps and it only lasted about 3 days [Which, I always get awful cramps and it usually lasts around 5 days]. Before that, I’ve been feeling a little wierd, but afterwards, I’ve been scared that I have pregnancy symptoms. I’ve been extremely nauseous and I’ve thrown up a lot lately. I’ve also been urinating a lot more.. or at least feeling like I have to, sometimes I don’t actually have to. It’s weird because I’ve also been having more flu-like symptoms though. Fevers, headaches.. I’m EXTREMELY tired all the time. And recently [Not to get too personal or gross] I’ve been constipated [Which, I've been told could sometimes be a symptom]. I haven’t been hungry all of the time, but when I am, I get extremely hungry, but can’t eat most things.. And most of the time [Although I'm extremely thirsty] I get nauseous from drinking most things too [Even water]. The thing that confuses me though, is that, although I have all of these possible symptoms, I got my period yesterday, but it was really wierd. At first I didn’t get cramps, and it didn’t drip out onto my pad [or even get very much on a tampon] at all except for when I went pee. Then later, I started getting mild cramps [No where near as bad as I usually get] and it started kind of pouring out, but still only more or less when I go pee. I don’t know if I could be pregnant or what is going on.. And I really can’t take a test yet because of my family and.. Yeah. I have all these ‘symptoms’, but even though I got my period [or whatever it is] might I still be pregnant? Help please!? =/

Alright Girls, I have to wonder, why the rush and WHY unprotected sex???? I can’t even begin to imagine the stress you are choosing to put yourself in by taking chances. Please spread the word to be safe. Use protection for pregnacy and against diseases. When you are older, your time will come and you will welcome it. If your time is now, be strong and true to yourelf, and you child. You both deserve to be happy, Take Care.

(226) Steph says:

Ok so, last week i had unprotected sex about seven times in one day(he didnt come at all). The next day, i got my period like i was supposed to. But it only lasted about 3 days which is unusual. Then yesterday, I had unprotected sex with him again. This time, he came so soon after he got out of me that we’re not sure if any came out while he was still inside.

I’m so scared now. My question is, how long should I wait before I take a pregnancy test? Most say that they won’t be accurate if you use them more than five days before your missed period. So should I wait an entire month??? Thats soo long. Help me?

May 28, 2009 at 8:21 pm
(227) Scared and Confused says:

Some pregnancy tests are actually accurate about 2 or 3 weeks after you’ve had sex.. By then, a baby could be conceived and the hormone [I can't think of the name of it right now] would start being produced..
So you can take one and it should give you a pretty good result, but then you should take one after you’ve missed your period even if you do get it.. Just to be sure the result’s the same.

&& A little more information for anyone that has been wondering about getting your period during a pregnancy.. It happens! I got mine for the past two months.. And I’m almost 7 weeks pregnant. You’re period does act a little differently, cramps aren’t nearly as bad and it looks a lot different [But that part's different for everyone]. Even if you get your period, pay attention to any other things that may be different with your body, that was my big thing. I know around 5-6 weeks, you start to get the nausea[really bad] and the extreme fatigue.. All you’ll wanna do for like the first couple months is sleep, eat, and throw up. Lol. With me, a big thing that made me know I was pregnant was my sensitivity to like.. every food I tried to eat.. But that doesn’t happen to everyone. Around 6 weeks you do get the cravings, but again, for some people, it’s not that bad. I’ve been reading a lot of stuff and talking to doctors about this [Seeming as how..I kind of have to know now..] So I have been getting a lot of helpful information. If anyone has any questions. I’ll come back and keep checking .. I’d love to be able to help anyone out that might need it. I know that would’ve helped me instead of reading a comment right after my first one that basically criticized any of us who have made some less that intelligent decisions in our lives and are living with the results. [But FYI: No matter if it was an accident or not.. A weird feeling of happiness and excitement comes over you when you find out.. At least it did for me. Now, I couldn’t be happier to share my body with the new love of my life

wow just spent over an hour reading all these posts on here, now for my turn.
My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 7 years now, i have been diagnosed with PCOS, and i do not have a regular period, ob has me on provera every month to make myself have a period. i had been taking my provera every month as prescribed except for the past 2 months as i had been out and needed to make the time to get a new prescription, so i hadnt had a period in 9 months as the meds wernt working and out of the blue on may 12th i started to spot and i spoted on the 13 and my period started on its own on the 14th and lasted 5 days which is normal. on the 5th day it is always light/spotty and stops and hubby and i had intercourse in the evening on that day. then 6 days ago i took an opk and there was a faint line so i have been taking them every day since, the last 4 days the test line has been darker then the control line which means its positive which i have never had before so was exciting but we have been having intercourse everyday for the past week just in case. yesterday i took a home pg test and it was positive, and was really excited, but then i started to spot so i went to the er and they did a blood test, urine test, ultra sound, and vag exam, dr said blood hcg test was neg hcg levels were under 1 but also said that my cervix was completely closed. i am still spotting today, it is on and off and it is a brownish red color.
i know that it is possible that it could be implantation bleeding, but ive read that with implantation bleeding there isnt normally that much blood that comes out just a little bit. i have been nauseous on and off for the past 5 days, have had hot flashes for the past 5 days and increased urination for about the same amount of time.breasts are a little more sensitive, but not sore, and i feel bloated..
I guess im not really looking for any advice, as i know i need to wait a few more days and get another blood test done like the dr said, but i was just wanting someone elses opinion on what might be happening? any opinions welcomed and appreciated thank you!!

Hannah.. I’m really young and haven’t learned very much about everything when it comes to this.. obviously. But I will say, it’s weird that you were having to take pills to get your period and started it on your own out of nowhere like that. In my experience [I was 'Scared and Confused'] I did get my period the past two months.. And like I said, I’m 7 weeks. So in my opinion, if you weren’t getting it on your own, and now you are.. I’d say there’s probably a good chance you might be.. But obviously, I’m 16, and no doctor. Either way, I wish you and your husband the best of luck and hope that you two end up conceiving=]

well here is my story, this time last year i had a miscarriage:( i stopped taking bc in jan and have had normal periods since feb but the last two months my periods have been very different lasting barely two days and very uncomfortable to even wear tampon. then this month my husband and i had sex during ovulation week but he used the rhythm method, but about 10 days later i starting bleeding very very lite for a couple hours then stopped. 5 days after that (would be normal period staring time) bleeding again only for two days again very lite. i have not had any pregnancy signs like i had before. but that pregnancy was not normal- blited ovum. was that a real period? could i be pregnant with no other symptoms? i am going to make appt at docs just because it has been a year since my last exam (well since D&C).

Hey i was reading the blogs on womans health and i came accross you email address. I would just like to ask you a few things if that is ok? 1 Ok i have another question i did some research. If you Estimated conception by the first day of your last cycle. Her last period was 4-20/21-09. the conception was around 5-4-09. and the estimated due date is 1-25-09. I don not understand any of that. she had sex back in march un protected. we didnt have sex until 5-20-09 with protection. I am really lost with whats going on! Does any of this make any sense at all? If you are pregnant why are you you still smoking?

she saysher period it usually comes around the 20-21 of each month and its a 7 day cycle ?? thats a low number. She is not sleeping harly eating still smoking and spotting and passed a blood clot yesterday? i say go tot he doc she says she dont know. what is she scared of? She passed a quater sized clot that was brown and reddish. She is very overweight and has had 2 misscarriages. she smokes alot. She has been complaining about a lot of severe cramps and the thats when she passed the blood clot. After having sex on the 20th then she says she feels funny the next day.5 days later she says she is pregnant? I didnt see any leaks in the condom or anything.But the crazy thing was she was throwing up and sick before the 20th. she dont sleep a lot. work 12 hours a day 7 days a week. she isnt eating right at all.I really think she is on a bad path. And when i did a ruff estimate of due dates and conception if you go by her last period. i cant see where i am a factor! Thank you for taking the time to read this.

So me and my Fiance had sex 10 times with no condom, I stopped taking my birth control, and he never pulled out. And Over the days I just waited and waited for my peirod but nothing came.(and stopping birth control, messed up my whole peirod) but I’ve took 4 at home test and one said yes and the next said no and the next said no and the last was a book error. And i’ve been really dizzy alot, and when i’m at work i just want to sit down and relax, and i have bad mood swings. Don’t go out and have fun with girl friends anymore, just sit at home when i’m not working. And i’ve been having spotting but the other day I got this dark dark dark Blood (NOT normal at all for me) and it’s just going through everything, i always have to chage my tampon like every hour so it won’t leak through, and my peirods are NEVER like that, there usally really light. And i’m have horrible adomanol pains..I looked it up on the internet and all i could find was a misscarrige, and that is not what i want at all. or is there any chance that i am pregnant? I want to be, and right now i am scared to death.

June 17, 2009 at 12:41 pm
(238) Dr. Smith says:

Lexus…whether a miscarriage is something you want or not doesn’t affect the likelihood of you having one. Home pregnancy tests are more likely to give you a false negative than a false positive (in other words, you can BE pregnant and have it read negative, but it is very unlikely to NOT be pregnant and get a positive). The fact that you even had one positive pregnancy test is a VERY good indication that you are/were pregnant. Unfortunately, it does sound like a miscarriage (especially given the intense abdominal pain). However, without seeing you it is hard to give an accurate diagnosis. Please go see your doctor!

Remember, having a miscarriage does not necessarily mean that you cannot have children! They are very common. Many women miscarriage without realizing it, soon after fertilization.

Ughh, I don’t know if anyone has any opinions, but it would be really great if someone had one or some sort of an answer. I’m 18, I used to be on birth control but stopped when i stopped being sexually active. Over a week ago I was fooling around with someone, got carried away and before you know it he was inside of me.. I quick came to my senses realizing it was unprotected and said that I couldn’t because we were unprotected. He understood and we continued to fool around.. (not with intercourse) I thought about getting plan B but got really busy and forgot to get to it.
I don’t think I have any symptoms really except i’ve been crying for no reason a lot (and I NEVER cry), and have a large sweet tooth (which is somewhat normal) and have been reallyyy tired lately, and I don’t know if its just in my head but have been peeing a lot, boobs somewhatt tender (not extremely though).
I feel like pregnancy ads are haunting me now though and I can’t remember when my last period was so I don’t know if I’ve missed mine yet.. my mom used to joke around and say the girls in our family are “fertle mertles”..
what are my chances of being pregnent? and when should I get a test? I want to catch it early if I am..

But also they have these bumps on them like i have never had them before!

I didnt get my period last week when i was supposed to, and mine always comes about the same time each month. I’ve been peeing extra lately, getting the chills real easy, and have had a change in appetite. Also, my boobs seem to have grown a bit or swollen.

I assumed i was pregnant because of some stupid things i’ve done lately the past couple months. Then today(over a week late), I started bleeding. It’s VERY light, i havent even bothered using a pad or tampon. Normally my period is very heavy, so this confuses me.

Is this probably a false period and I’m pregnant? Or is it really my period?

I’m only 17, so I really hope that I’m not…

(243) Mel says:

I’ve been off my bc pills for 2 months now. Last month my period was EXTREMELY heavy and I had all the “classic” pregnancy signs but it was just my body adjusting to not taking the pills. This month my husband and I had sex about 2 weeks before I was to start my period. I began spotting about a week before I was due. It was dark and last 2 days. On the 3rd day, I started bleeding. I thought I had started. The next day it was gone. Then 2 days later I started bleeding again. This time my “period” was pretty light and never enough to fill a tampon. This is not normal for me. My period usually lasts 5 to 6 days with days 2 thru 5 being the heaviest. I started on Tuesday afternoon and today is Friday and I am hardly bleeding at all. My period has never been this light even when I was on the pill. Normally I have to use a super tampon but not this time. So far I have had no other “signs” of being pregnant but my mom said that she did the same thing when she was pregnant with me. She said she never had very many cramps or anything. I wanna be pregnant and start a family w/ my husband but Im afraid to take a test because I dont want to get my hopes up too soon. I keep reading that I can have a light period while being pregnant. Has anybody else experienced this same kinda thing Im going through? I would love to get some feelback. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

(244) Worried L, says:

Please let me know what this could possibly be. I missed my period, and took home test and it showed that I知 pregnant. Few days later started lightly bleeding (brownish color) I知 assuming that was just spotting. And then few days after that I stated bleeding little heavier and color was just like my regular period. Could it be that I lost it? Or am I still pregnant and it was just spotting? Thanks in advance.

July 9, 2009 at 7:39 am
(245) Misty says:

The answer to the thread is no. You can’t have your period during pregnancy. However, you can have bleeding which may appear to be a regular period during pregnancy. This bleeding could be caused by implantation (which is normally the bleeding after your unprotected intercourse) or due to something related to the pregnancy. Although this time in your life can be scary, please take a deep breath and count to ten. One important thing for you to remember is that your body will react to your stress and may cause you to have symptoms that appear to be from pregnancy. You may have breast tenderness, fatigue, little or no period, a heavy period, back pain, naseau, and other similar symptoms. Most of those symptoms can be from stress as well. After about 3 weeks from the date of intercourse, take a pregnancy test. If it is negative,please try to get your mind off of it. However, if your symptoms persist and are associated with pain, please go to the doctor. Also remember, that everything happens for a reason! :-) Good luck!

Hey everyone!
I feel for all of you and I hope everything is working out. First of all, I know coming on here and leaving a comment may seem like a good way to get answers but by the number of replies left by the “Dr.” on here, I’d say that you should just make an appointment with your doctors.
If you are a young woman like myself, not married and not attempting to get pregnant, why would you be risking your future and having unprotected sex?? I get that you get carried away and there arent any condoms around but still…
My fiance and I are very much in love and I know he is the one I will spend the rest of my life with, but even in our situation, we DO NOT have unprotected sex!! I know we all get horny and want to get it on but please use some common sense!! If you are not emptionally, physically or finacially stable for any of the outcomes sex can cause such as an STD or pregnancy how can you not say NO with no protection?? I have travelled the world and visited orphanages and seen just how many kids live in poverty because they young, teenage parents got “horny.” I know this sounds like a lecture and I guess it is but common sence should be something that comes into play in these kinds of situations…
Everyone wants to have sex I get that. I like sex 3 times a day!! But if I don’t have a condom on hand I am smart enough to come to my senses and stop it!! Pulling out does not work…trust me..my little sister got pregnant at 15 by some stupid boy who said pulling out was the safest way to have sex. Birth controll pills or patches and condoms should be used!!
For all you 15 year olds who are leaving posts here: You are young and have youre whole lives ahead of you! Go make something of yourselves and live your lives! Have fun and enjoy being young!!! I am only 19 but I wish I was still young…er..lol I know everyone wants to loose their virginity but if you really wanna be experienced, save it! Men like virgins! I didnt loose mine for a long time by choice. Although I am engaged, when I used to out with the girls and was still the only virgin, the men would be hitting on me becauase of that!! Us women have so much control! Men think they run the show but they dont! We do. Save it for when it’s really right. Men respect women more when they have had few to no partners. When life really matters, like when you are trying to find “the One” or when you have met the man you want to marry, the factor that sometimes makes me turn away is the number of partners you have had. Saving it for the few special people or hopefully the right special person seriously works to your benefit. Lots of high school girls try to loose it because all their friends say they have and keep making fun of you for not having had sex yet are just stupid. Most them havent even had sex even though they say they have! I knew people like that. It might “cool” to loose your virginity but really its not. Guys dont like girls who are in a rush to loose it even when they say do. A boy will respect you more if you save it and do not put out.
Anyway, now that I sound like an old lady give lectures on sex I will shut up. Just please be smart girls!! And remember, if you think you could be pregnant just GO TO THE DOCTOR!!!! Dont waste time here trying to get answers…most of the posts havent gotten any answers…Good luck to you all:)

I need help. Someone please answer. Im 18 years old and just started having sex. The last time I had sex was may 18th the condom broke. I had my period 2 days after (the 20th) and also took the morning after pill. I had no period in June and at the start of this month (july) its only brownish spotting for about a week. Is there any way that I could still be pregnant?

(249) AnRuaRi says:

for most of the post’s here there’s one simple answer:
Go to the chemist (Pharmacy / drug store / supermarket) and buy a pregnancy test. in the UK they cost 」5 – 」15. They are really easy to use.
They are 95 – 99% accurate from the day your period is due (normally 2 weeks after conception).
If you can’t afford the cash there are free services in most countries via your school nurse, GP/Family doctor Brook Clinic, charities and many other sources. Info in your school and library.
For those of you not trying to get pregnant remember:
Dont have unprotected sex.
STD’s are really common. so use a Condom or femidom.
even this is only 99% effective. that means that there’s a small but significant chance you could still get pregnant or catch something unpleasant. – due to breakage / slippage of a barrier or failure of drug based contraception.
These methods can help reduce the risk, but they don’t eliminate it.
The only foolproof method of avoiding pregnancy or STD’s is do not have penetrative sex. – Make do with other techniques.
remember even 99.9% effective still means 1 in 1000 failures. That’s several potential problems in an average school year group.
For those of you who are trying to get pregnant: Good luck to you, I hope it’s easier for you then it is for my wife & I.

In the beginning of June i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend numours times, then 4 days after i started my period but in the beginning it was a dark brown color for 1 and half days then went normal color. On the day i finished my period me and boyfriend had unprotected sex again and now i have my period but it started off as spotting (dark brown again) then the next day it was heavy and now kinda bright red. Is there something wrong?

(253) Samanth says:

This is an easy question and I thought it wasn’t true for a long time. I had to go to my family doctor for some odd nipple discharge. He said I needed a pregnancy test and I told him I didn’t since I was heavily on my period. He totally dismissed this and told me he’s seen it quite often. Turned out it was only me having too much soy in my diet. It can mess with your hormones, (don’t ask me how, I’m no doctor!) Either way I completely trust him. Some may have their doubts, but I sticking with my doctor. He has never led me astray be fore.

(258) Shelea says:

Okay my boyfriend came home in june and june 12th we had sex and he ejaculated in me 2 weeks later exactly my period started, and when it came on it was very reddish-orangeish like. Since then my breast have became very tender and bigger. I have blue veins all on my breast. My face is alot fatter, but I am also one of those woman who positive results doesnt show on a pee stick. When I was prego with my son 11 years ago I didn’t find out till I was 4 mos pregnant when I went to have a pap smear. When I went to my first prenatal visit to see just how far along I was, I was 5 mos prego plus I still I had my period that whole time. So to answer some of you ladies questions with period being prego IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU!lol…… I tried a home pregnancy test a week ago because of all the syptoms I’m having and I don’t know why I thought it would be different but it was negative. So here I am back to square one and the period just came back when it was suppose to but I still have these syptoms and like last month its reddish orangish and light. Is it possible I can be pregnant

(259) Amy says:

So i’ve been on the pill for 8 years or so now and my husband and I (recently married) are not trying for kids but have unprotected sex all the time. I’ve never had a scare my whole life and I actual worry that being on the pill for so long could lower my changes of falling pregnant one day. However the doctors assure me that it doesn’t matter how long i’ve been on the pill for so fingers crossed! Currently, I am on my period but it seems lighter than usual and I’ve been having headaches/ dizziness the pass couple of weeks from time to time. Also, I’ve been having uncontrollable cravings for weeks now and i’m starting to put on weight (this is unusual for m), whether this be from the cravings (over eating) or perhaps i’m pregnant? I might weight a few more days to see how my period goes then I’ll decide whether to get a pregnancy test or not..

(260) Laura says:

I just spent almost all day on the internet searching for answers. I am 22 and live with my fiance. We have unprotected sex. My period was supposed to come 2 days from now. It has always been regular and lasts 6 days with heavy cramps. Last Friday I was really emotional and irritable and had high anxiety. Saturday (Today is Tuesday) I started feeling sick, but it got better throughout the day. I again woke up sick Sunday, yesterday and today. I have been feeling exhausted and sick since Saturday and have had cramps since Sunday (I usually start getting cramps one day before I start). On Sunday I was eating lunch with a friend and couldnt stand the smell of his food. So I thought my period would come any minute since Saturday. Today I finally got a little brown discharge and then some very light red spotting, it went back to almost nothing for a few hours and then to brown again, last i checked it was light bleeding but red and brown with one small clot. I will take a pregnancy test tomorrow morning but I want to know if anyone else had the same thing happen and ended up pregnant…. I cant stand the wait!

so.. i am 15 years old and on june 1st i had unprotected sex. i later figured out i was ovulation around that time. may 12th was when i had last had my period so i just waited until june 12th thinking i would get it any day. but i didnt. so finally on june 22nd i got it. it was like a normal period but i didnt understand why i had gotten it at such a random time. now, its july 29th and theres been no sign of a coming period. could i be pregnant? i know i should get a test but im just really nervous so i kind of wanted to just wait to see if im gonna get my period anytime soon.

Now 7 years later we are trying to conceive. My last period was July 19 we had sex from July 23 through August 6 everyday sometimes twice!! Ovulated between Aug 2-5 by August 6 i already experienced some symptoms little ones including swollen achy breasts goosebumps around aerola prominent veins first on one breast now on both just now starting to show on nipple and aerola nauseous in the beginning now the last couple of days not much I have a feeling I’m pregnant and expect my period in two days but from 8 this morning i started to spot pink then some juice like watery consistency sometimes in toilet on and off sometimes its there sometimes not but most of time just when i wipe! I never experienced bleeding with first pregnancy at first i thought here’s another sign!! but since i never experienced spotting don’t know what to look for..this does not look like normal menstruation did a pregnancy test two days ago neg did one today neg i want to know if i’m pregnant or not has anyone gone through this especially after a c-section (7 years have passed for me!) please let me know its disappointing!

Okay, I was trying to have get pregnant and now I quit but I have been really sleepy, breast sore and tender, but I started my period the day I am suppose to but it is really light compared to my regular one and the cramps are no where near as bad but I also had them before my period, which never happens to me. I usually go through four or more pads a day and its my second night and i have went through three or four. How likely is it that I am pregnant?

I am on the pill. I have been for almost two years. In the last couple of months I have been very forgetful when it comes to taking my pills. I would forget for a couple of days, then just take all the pills i missed on the third day. i would have sex afterwards. Or sometimes i would forget my pill have unprotected sex and then take my pills afterward. Anyway…since this has been according my body just feels different. my period is often late now and it only lasts for a few days (3 or less). and its doesnt look like a period anymore. [sorry for graphics] it isnt red until the final day…before its just brown or slightly pink. Now i am very nausesous. i can barely eat anything. i am terribly tired but can hardly sleep. my body is so sore and i have been extremely emotional all the time now. My breasts are swollen. And i have gained weight even though my eatting habits have decreased. so i pose these questions…

Am i covered if i doubled up on pills? Could i be pregant now even with me having these weird periods?

thank you for your help!

Me and my fiance have been having unprotected sex for 3 years now and we still hav’nt fallen pregnant , It makes me a little jelous to hear all of these really young girls having unprotected sex and falling pregnant, Girls you reall yneed to think about having sex because there are alot of people that struggle or cant cant have children and the way people talk about a pregnancy as a problem does irritate me slightly, Now i am well aware that people can do whatever they like with their own bodies and I agrree with that ,but just a message to the young girls that are in a rush to lose their virginity – I didnt lose my virginity untill i was 19 and Im marrying the man that helped me lose it, I love him very much – just think about it ! — Any tips on getting pregnant would be most apprciated x

Ok so I am 20 years old me and my boyfriend has been trying to get pregnant for the last 4 to 5 months. Right now I don’t know if I am I see everyone keeps saying it’s unlikely for you to be pregnant if you have your cycle?? My cycle recently started being irregular, (I’ll skip a month or 2). About 2 months ago I was frequently urinating getting up 2 or 3 times in the middle of the night. Horribe headaches, and I have gained some weight in my stomache and arms. My breast has gotten so big, and my veins are more visible, but their not sore. I recently got stretch marks on my side, are these signs of pregnancy? I am africa american so my neck has even gotten a little darker. I am very snappy even the smallest things like chewing or the volume of the tv will make me mad. So please tell me if I am pregant why does my cycle still come on. I even went to the health dept. and got a urine pt and it was neg. So I don’t know my family keeps asking are “you pregnant”, and I keep saying “no”. Truth is I don’t know I took 4 or 5 Home pt a few months back all negative. I haven’t taken one in about 2 months I don’t want to be dissapointed!! Someone pleeeaaassseeee give me advise or info.

[[Wanting A Baby]] Hi there. It’s only a 50% chance that couples will get prego within 6 months. 99% of the time stress is a very big problem. So go ahead and “give up” ;] chances are it’ll come easier hun.

If it doesn’t happen within about 3 more months I’d head to the doctor and get everything checked out.

Good luck!!

Wanting to make sure im not pregnant. Had period Sept 2, had unprotected sex last sept 15 and 16 pulled out, got yeast infection Sept 27, got period again Oct 1, really heavy, dark,brownish, otherwise seem to feel normal. Just thinking i could be took test today negative, i was told yeast infections are common when pregnant ive never get them unless on aantibiotics, not on any. Are blood tests always acurate?

October 16, 2009 at 6:22 pm
(279) SarahO says:

I am not a medical professional but I do teach natural family planning and have a lot of knowledge. Take what I say and do what you will with it.

Peta-Maree: Implantation has to have already occurred in order for you to have a positive preg. test. In fact, the egg has to be implanted for quite a few days before the body has produced enough hormones to show up on a home preg. test. So I highly doubt that its implantation bleeding. That being said, mention it to you doctor. If you begin to bleed heavily, go to the local ER.

Amber: Your period sounds like it came right on time. Good for you. I highly doubt you are pregnant. Yeast infections are also common if you are sexually active. The yeast infection could have made your period slightly different looking. I think you should relax.

A lot of you: If you are having unprotected sex, you have officially moved into the “trying to conceive” category by default. Are you prepared to give a good future to another human being?

Bleeding during pregnancy can be due to a number of things. I am pregnant and I took 3 home pregnancy tests and they all came back negative. Went to my Doctor and did blood test and it was positive! I too bleed and my Doctor says that it is called breakthrough bleeding,occurs around the same time as your period would start, something about not having enough certain hormones yet! Doctor says that it is not actually a period!!!

Hi all, ima 16 year old guy who had unprotected sex with my girlfriend. (HER LAST PERIOD LASTED FROM THR 9TH TO THE 16 OF NOV. AND I HAD SEX WIF HER TODAY, THE 9TH) it lasted about 1 min because we had decided to stop having sex. (but we were really turned on) i didnt cum in her or anything. However, im worried…… as i pulled out my penis, and while i was wiping it, i saw a TRANSPARENT liquid at the tip oF the head. its transparent.. but im worried. is it possible for her to get preg? and btw, can i know WHEN is a home test useful? this is for emanuel. but others can feel free to reply. Thanks.

comment number 293 Worried Sick…

OK. I’m 18, I have had so many scares that I was pregnant because me and my now husband have been together for going on four yrs. He has always became freaking worried off his ass. (Sry for the language) I am now worried again, that’s what happens when you get married and dnt want kids right away, you worry abt it a lot. We have never useda condomall the way through sex just because it feels better without. OK!! Your gf is most likely not pregnant. The time you had unprotected sex, did you get off inside of her? If not, she is most likely not. Even if so, has she had a period since? If so, most likely not. And as far as thetransparent liquid, thats called pre-ejacultion. Or I call, pre-cum. Everyone says it’s possible to get pregnant by that, but idk…I have been on BC abt the whole time, so yea I could just be a lucky one. Here’s what I suggest, if you’re not going to use a condom. Ask your girl to start some kind of BC. I suggest Tri-Cyclen LO. If she doesn’t want to have her period as often, go with Levlan21. The only thing abt levlan is that it causes your estrogen levels to be higher in which will make you gain weight and I also worried more abt being pregnant because I didn’t have a period but every 3 months. Tri-Cyclen LO is great.I haven’t got pregnant and because I like the way it feels, he gets off in meevery time. Sry for that piece of info, but at least you know it works. Be careful, you’re still young and I’m sure she is too. Do what you can to not have a baby until you’re old enough to support it. There are toomany kids out there that don’t have much. -Rose Cinnamon

(297) LONely in the World says:

Me and my boyfriend have been together for 6 yrs. we have been trying for about 4 of those 6 i still have not concieved and still no hope it looks like down the road. The next step is i guess seeing a fertility specialist said to say im 20ish. Losing hope and faith, and wondering why all these people who don’t want kids or don’t need kids are able to do it with such ease. Doctors said everything looks normal in vaginal and transvaginal i’m going to get a second one and see, they were about a month apart. I hope that it will result in a brand new baby that is healthy!

(298) Natalie says:

Well, I skipped my period for 3 weeks, so i took a home pregnancy test and it was positive. But a few days later i got my period. So i went to the doctor to get tested and see if i was really pregnant or not. And i was. So I got what is called a ” False Period” Which is really common for women of the younger ages early in pregnancy.

(300) faye says:

When I fell pregnant with my son I had a very light period which lasted 3-4 days, I knew this wasn’t normal as my periods were usually very heavy. A couple of days later I did a pregnancy test. I was hoping that I was going to be pregnant because me and my husband had just started to try for a baby, but the light period really bamboozled me, I was a little down when I came on because I just assumed we had failed! Apparently a very light period in the first few weeeks is very common.
Good luck to all those people who want to be pregnant, chin up to those who are fretting, there are much worse things than having a baby though!!! BUT remember practicing safe sex helps next time and find out if you are pregnant as soon as possible then you are giving yourself plenty of time to make a decision thats right for you.

I have read numerous stories of young girls scared about being pregnant and engaging in sexual activity imo at a very young age. If you girls feel the need to have sex for whatever reason: USE PROTECTION or REMAIN ABSTINENT!! Its easy to say I can have sex because I can but it takes someone mature and in control of their bodies and health. Its better to be proactive please take care of yourselves. xoxox

I had unprotected sex a month ago, but 2 weeks later i started getting symptoms. Gaining weight, nauseas when smelling something. Feel like vomiting but i chose not to. But the strange thing is, I just started my period just now. So does that mean? am I pregnant? or i am not?

March 20, 2010 at 7:48 am
(311) Kerly says:

ok i have never done this before so here goes…
i had sex on the 28th of feb and well u can guess what happened..that same day i was spotting a bit but i had recently finished my period, i would say less than a week..but i kept having sex because i didnt really think anything of it..like every other day and sometimes every day..so a few weeks later i started getting the symptoms of being pregnant like feeling queasy (i cannot stand the smell of certain foods), i eat alot now and frequent, i pee like a lot much more than usual, i was told that i was moody, my nipples are tender to the touch, and my tummy looks a little bit bigger.. im supposed to get my period tomorrow and mine is like clock work. thursday i took a pregnancy test but it came out negative-it still couldv been too early to tell. so im waiting to see if i get my period this week so i can take another test-but this morning when i woke up for work i was bleeding when i went to the bathroom but barely..i know that you can get a light period while your pregnant because my mom had hers for 3 months when she was pregnant with me and had no cramps.
so..im wondering if i could be pregnant or not-could it just be in my head?? im really anxious to find out because i want to be but ill just have to wait and see..

(313) jesst says:

I have a similar problem, but I’m freaking out!
I’m 17 and I’ve only been having sex for the last 6 months, my boyfriend and I are normally quite careful, but sometimes hormones do get the better of us and we end up doing stupid things. I started my period on the 10th of march and on the 14th I had unprotected sex. My period is normally like clock work, goes for 6 days, but it stopped on the 14th. Then on the 19th it came back again.. lasted the past 4 days but not my normal flow. I am quite worried that I am pregnant, I have been feeling nauseous recently and pee A LOT as well as feel irritable and listless, and my body feels strange. Given my age I am aware that I’m not ready for the kind of commitment a baby requires, but worry I’m going to have to face up to the consequences of my actions. Is the double period a possible sign of pregnancy? And the nausea and other symptoms I’m experiencing? could there be something wrong with me? how should I proceed from here? how do I tell the father if I am?
please help urgently!!

(314) Mrs Y says:

hi. im 19 and im engaged. After all the biology i studied and excelled at it at school i should know the answer to this but i guess the fact of me wanting to be pregnant so bad makes me believe i still have a chance. I see that most of these questions are left unanswered but what the heck, never hurts to try. My fiance and i have been having unprotected sex for the past month. it was sometimes 8 times a week more or less, every week until my period came. My usual menstrual cycle is 24-26 days. I was not sure when i was ovulating so i just tried to have sex as many times as possible, almost everyday and if we did it, we did it 2x a day. So i was taking pre natal pills and was 100% sure i would get pregnant unfortunately my period came on the 29th day of my menstrual cycle, It started to be brown then red and i got a heavy flow with clots and pain. So i said to myself, i must have had a miscarriage but i wonder if i even got pregnant in the 1st place! I got almost no symptoms of pregnancy before my period except for tiredness. But i keep having a feeling right now that i am preg, this may make me look stupid. But now i feel little cramps in my lower abdomen, feels like bubbles are in there, i am always sleepy. I go to the bathroom every 20 mins, i have headaches and dizziness. I feel nauseous in the morning, i have sharp pains in my breasts that comes and goes, have mood swings and gotten a bit gassy. I know the type of period that i had can never mean that I am pregnant, it was too heavy and clotty just as all my periods (thats why i cant tell if i had a miscarriage). But I dont want to go to the doctor cuz it will be too embarrassing cuz this is a foolish thing to even think that i may be preg. I already made a fool out of myself last year thinking i was pregnant, took a test and turned out neg…so im trying to avoid the shame and disappointment. Please…begging any1 who can help me cuz i really want to know, if this isnt pregnany..can it mean something dangerous????

(317) Leah says:

My boyfriend and i had sex for the first time almost 4 months ago. For the first few months i didnt really think anything about it. he thought he had something wrong with him that made him not be able to cum. Well i noticed a little over a month later that while i was giving him oral sex, that he had what people call “pre-cum”. i had never heard of that and i didnt think anything about it. i thought that it was just my spit getting all thick because of what i was doing.
Anyway, now that time has gone on, ive been gaining a lot of weight and i have had really weird food cravings. im so scared because im only 17 and what we did was only a one time thing. i made a mistake and i dont want to be pregnant. my fingers have swollen, and i have bumps around my nipple. i have pretty bad hot flaches and my back is always hurting and i have really bad gas. like its not like im farting but it starts more as a stomach growl than anything.
if i got pregnant, my mom would be so mad. i’m so scared…. can anyone help me?

(318) Kris says:

I see not many people are getting responses but since everyone else is sharing their pregnancy worries and concerns I feel like I should too, maybe it could help.
My high school sweetheart and I broke up in late october and started seeing other people, I’m 20 and he’s 21. I started dating another guy without realizing that I was using this poor guy to get over my ex. We had a lot of unprotected sex in the few months we dated but he always withdrew and I got my period all three months (full blown, regular period.) Like always, my feelings for my ex came back and I broke things off with the new guy in the second week of february this year. My ex and I ot back together and started having A LOT of unprotected sex, without him withdrawing. I got my period in mid-february, thick as usual and lasted about 5 days (not abnormal for me) but it was lighter than usual at night. Anyway, I found out march 19th that I’m pregnant and even though I’m sure it’s my high school sweet heart’s, I have a little fear inside that it might be the guy I was seeing in between’s baby. I’m so mad that I let myself get into this situation, but I know I’m only human and have to relax and be calm for my developing baby’s sake. I pray every night that it definitely comes out as my boyfriend now’s baby. Ohhh life. Baby is due november 26th 2010

I have a question. I got my period on the 4th of april and it lasted about 5 days. I had been having sex with my boyfriend for about a month using the pull out method. I had sex with him not pulling out on the 11th, and took the Plan B pill hours later. I started bleeding on the 16th, spotting until the 21st, roughly. I had been experiencing dizziness and nausea before all of this but now it has increased. Also I get cramps randomly throughout the day. Could I be pregnant?

Okay, i just read an insane amount of comments on this page….

let me just say : IF YOU ARE HAVING SEX YOU COULD BE PREGNANT , getting pregnant doesnt care if you are 15 or if you pulled out, or if you had a one night stand , I had come across this link and hoped to get information , instead I found the reject files for the Jerry Springer show…

to those on here who truly had a question or concern , I hope you got the answers you were seeking … and to some of those that shared a lil too much on here , IF you were actually pregnant good luck to your child/ren …

(329) sammy says:

To all the girls that have had unprotected sex and are woried about pregnancy, go to the doctors and have a blood test they will give you a 100% reading.
Dont be woried about people finding out because if you are pregnant they will all find out in the end anyway. But one thing I cant belive is you are all so woried about falling pregnant that you have all forgotten about the bigger picture and thet is not only pregnancy it’s STD Sexualy Transmited Desease, So many people dont think they will get it but so many people dont think there ever going to die eather. I have a few stories of some friends that did the same thing and they were so woried that they were pregnant the last thing on there mind to wory aboyt was an STD. To find 1 of my friend’s at 16 lost her verginity for the first time and did NOT use protaction she was woried that she was pregnant until she was told by her doctor that she had Genital Herpies. Now she is a single mother with a daughter that has trouble with guy’s because before she has sex she has to tell them about her little problem now how do you think he will react to that. But not a bad out come to some I have another friend that has a simuler thing and she is married with 2 childrern.
I have a sister that fell pregnant at 16 and now she is 23 years old is still trying to find her feet in life.
I am only saying this to help you girls and to put yourselv’s first not the guy that say’s he loves you just for a little while. Love your self first and take your life first. Hope you guy’s get the answers you want and good luck to those that want pregnancy result’s. :) xx

(330) Alexis says:

Ok.. i am 17 years old and on May 21, 2010, I had sex with my (now) ex boyfriend. My cycle is usually around 6-8 days long. however, I had my menstrual cycle on June 2-4, which is 2 days long. The 3 days prior to my cycle, I had brownish colored spotting, really light not heavy at all. I took 4 home pregnancy tests.. the last one read positive, the one before was taken wrong or something and was completely pink (the whole detection stick) the 2 before those were both negative. If I am pregnant, I am 100% sure that the child’s father is my (now) ex boyfriend. He has another girlfriend now as he doesn’t wait very long to move on from a (what i called) serious relationship. he is 19 years old. I told him about it and he seems to be “excited” about this whole ordeal. I, however, am stressing. It doesn’t seem fair to me that he is with someone else knowing that I could potentially be pregnant. When we had intercourse on the 21st of May, it was unprotected. other times we had sex, and he withdrew before he ejaculated. but now that I rethink that night of last intercourse, he said “oh s***” when he ejaculated. at the time, i didn’t know why he said it.. (stupid? yes) but it never crossed my mind that he might have ejaculated into me. today is june 16th, almost one month since the last time I had sexual intercourse. the last test (like i said) read positive. yesterday, i had light cramps but as i’m typing this now, i am having worse cramps. there isn’t any bleeding but i’m very scared. although i am only 17 years old, i don’t want to miscarriage. i’m very scared right now. I havent had any noticable changes in my breasts, such as tenderness or browning of the arieolas. but, i have been steadily hungry the past 2 to 3 days and have been eating anything that comes my way, which is unlike me. i am having headaches 1 or 2 times a day and they last maybe an hour or 2 tops. my digestion processes have been acting funny. I haven’t had an “actual” bowel movement in around 3 days. that’s very unnormal for me. someone told me that you need to wait at least 6 weeks after the last time of sexual intercourse before you go to the doctor to get checked. is this true? my ex boyfriend is telling me he wants me to go now to make sure but I want to wait so I don’t make an unnecessary visit and him have to take off work (because yes he wants to come with me and wants to be a part of the child’s life just not be with me “with me”) please if anyone can respond to this and help me within the next few days, I would be sincerely grateful. Thank you all. And I’m praying that everyone’s results turned out as wished.

(334) Anonymous says:

Am writing my story here just to add to the collection I suppose because from what I have read, doesn’t look like anyone else has received a response either. My boyfriend and I had sex for six hours straight. He asked me before he did it and I gave him the consent, for what reason I do not know but he ejaculated inside of me three times. It has been three days since then and all of a sudden I started bleeding today. The reason I am confused is because before this happened three days ago when he actually ejaculated in me I thought I was pregnant before that… Because we never use protection and I was expecting my period on the 25th of July. Two weeks passed and it still hadn’t come so my boyfriend assumed that I was pregnant and he already started planning to go out and get a job and get serious and all that, etc etc. So now I am really confused. I don’t know if I was pregnant since three days ago or since before that, OR if I am not pregnant at all. I am just scared now that I am not because my boyfriend is really excited about us having a kid together and he even wants to marry me but I am scared to tell him that I started bleeding today and let his hopes down. So, if anyone DOES respond to these all I would like to know is if this is spotting from the embryo embedding in my vaginal wall or if it is actually my period? Help please thanks.

i am so tired of being confused! my husband and i had a miscarriage in april and again in early june… we decided to wait a year before trying again however my last period was barely there and lasted only 4 instead of my usual 7 days… and this month i am 11 days late and have all the symptoms i had when pregnant with my now 2 year old daughter…the thing is this mornign i started heavy bleeding out of no where… and im tired of going to the doctor and being told im miscarrying…i’ve had 5 already. so i am wondering… is there any way to figure out if i am/or was without going the the hospital?

(339) Jane says:

Oh my gosh, if you are worried you are pregnant, do a pregnancy test (or two!) and if you are really worried go to your doctor.
If you have unprotected sex or a condom breaks etc, even if you still have periods you could still be pregnant. People do have spotting or other bleeding during pregnancy so it does not guarantee that you are not pregnant. The only way to find out for sure is to get tested.

If you do not want to become pregnant or catch an STD, don’t have unprotected sex. It can be very awkward mentioning it in the middle of something exciting, but it is not a risk worth taking, and boys will respect you more for asking. They will try to get out of it, try to say it is less pleasurable or even that they can’t but it is not something I would ever budge on. But everyone makes mistakes, I have too and know how it feels, but was lucky and haven’t done it since. I do hope all of you get the outcome you want too.

Worried little momma – if you think you might have had a miscarriage, I know you are sick of going to the doctor, but you should go, there could be complications such as incomplete miscarriage etc. A home pregnancy test may work to tell you whether you were pregnant or not as it takes a while for the hormones to go down, but you would not know if it was because you were pregnant or if it is because you are pregnant again. Only a doctor using proper tests where they can monitor the actual HCG levels could tell you this. He could also check that you are still healthy. Sometimes it is a pain to go to the doctor but it is best to know. Do you have a doctor you trust and have a good relationship with?

I have been on Minerva 35 for about 10-9 years. 3 months ago I started spotting like a week before my period is due. My actual period started a day earlier and it was heavy red flow. I went to the doc and she tested my hormones. The result was low estrogen levels. I am not sexually active. I am now on Yaz. But I have back pain, pain in my legs and bloating. I do have a light period this months.

am I pregnant?

Hey all, this is for emmanuel / any doctors out there. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for a couple of months now. This month more than the last. I have been having stomach flutters, at one point had some pain in the side of my right breast, they feel bigger and had some pains, one of the veins is showing through too. My stomach is v bloated all the time and not like normal. I just got my period but lighter, I have taken 3 hpts but all neg. Havent gone to docs to get a blood test as may be too early.

What are your thoughts? Could there be a miracle inside of me?!

Well me and my boyfriend Had unprotected sex three weekends in a row… i did get my period a week after the last time but it was only 3 days long. Now i feel awkward and just today my bf said that i look pregnant and now its really bothering cuz i do look i guess bloated but i cant be bloated due to the fact that i just got done with what i think was my period. Should I be worried?

(348) R (medical student) says:

@ wondering in hope: im not a dr yet, but im studying MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery), so i will answer you according to my understanding of what i have learnt so far.

first to conceive there a few basic things to look out for, in order to increase your chance of a successful fertilisation. if you are trying im going to assume you know them, but i will mention the most important factors as a reminder:

1. ovulation occurs 14 days prior to the next period, so depending on ur cycle length, calculate 14 days before your next, not 14 days since your period started. n.b: an ovum usually lasts about 24-48 hrs in the cervix and it is only during that time when fertilisation is possible. so unprotected sex 2 days before ovulation till a day after has a high chance of successful fertilisation. having said this only 38% (percentages may change depending on source of info) of fertilised eggs go on to term.

2. watch out for fertile mucous, as gross as it may sound is one of the most effective ways of knowing when ur fertile days are, during this time your mucous is stretchy and can stretch up to 10 cm between ur 2 fingers, on infertile days it is much more clumpier and breaks easily between ur fingers

3. basal body temperature, monitor ur temperature everyday at 6am ish before any movement. you will notice at ovulation it rises by about 0.3 degrees celsius

October 8, 2010 at 9:12 pm
(349) R (medical student) says:

ok in that being said, the common symptoms are continued elevation of body temperature, dizziness, morning sickness (bloating, nausea, malaise, vomiting, etc) frequent urination and much later on breast tenderness (usually at around 2 months) but everyone is different, and some might experience all and others none.

if i was to tell u what textbooks say, then it would be periods do not occur during pregnancy and if they do it is indicative of a problem. however it is evident that in some cases lighter and shorter periods do occur. this can either be implantation bleeding which is usually dark brown or black blue in colour and occurs 6 days after fertilisation (so arund 6-8 days after unprotected sex)! the difference in colour accounts for the time the blood takes to travel down the cervix. in other cases bleeding occurs like a normal lighter period for unknown reasons, but usually subsides after first trimester

now looking at what u have mentioned; there is a possibility u r pregnant because u r trying, but i dont think that the symptoms are totally indicative of a pregnancy. changes in periods as u say urs is lighter this time can arise from a number of factors one is stress (if u r thinkn about getting pregnant or worrying about external factors then hormones imbalance occurs) also if u have changed ur exercise regime or dietary habits then period norm can change slightly

and 3 negative hpt, however i would go to a dr to confirm and i would do the test, 3 weeks after last unprotected sex just in case !!!

all that being said, i wish u all the best and if u r pregnant congratulations :)

Hi everyone,
I am 22 and I have a 2 year old son, I was diagnosed with endometriosis about 6 months ago. My boyfriend and I are not trying to have children but we are also not trying to prevent it. We wish to start a family in the next year or so (my son now is not from my bf, but the way they act together you would think so). My concern is that I want to have children very badly and since I have had my son I have (every now and then)had this feeling like I am pregnant. Since I have had my son my periods have changed, they are shorter, I don’t get cramps like I did before, and I have been getting terrible head aches. Recently I have been feeling odd feelings in my abdomen, little sharp pains, and my breasts are slightly tender, I have gas, no nausea or dizziness, but I am excessively tired. I have taken around 5 to 8 pregnancy tests over the past year because of paranoia and I don’t want to waste my money because my mind is making me think and feel like I’m crazy. My boyfriend has not gone in me but that isn’t to say that it isn’t possible because we do not have protected sex and I have skipped my pill quite a few times (not on purpose I forgot, remember I have a 2 year old and I am also busy with college). My worry is that, my periods are always abnormal, they come every month but it varies from sunday to wednesday even as late as thursday when it comes. I am on a strong birthcontrol called sprintec to help keep my endometreosis in check(at least the pain anyway). With taking this birth control and if persay I am pregnant. Is it possible that I will continually get my period when I take birthcontrol and still be pregnant?
My last pregnancy was normal and I did not have any problems. My delivery was good and my son was healthy and normal when he was born. If anyone has any suggestions I am all ears!!

October 27, 2010 at 1:16 am
(351) Kara says:

I’m 19 and in college. My boyfriend of 4 years and I have been having sex for about 3 years. We ALWAYS use protection (condom plus calender planning).

Right now, it’s October 27th. I had sex on September 25, there were no signs of the condom breaking, and it was two days after I was supposed to be ovulating. I had protected sex again on the 9th. I was expecting my period on October 7, but it ended up being about a week and a half late. I got it on October 17th. It was relatively normal (heavy and cramping the first day, regular to light). My period usually lasts 5-7 days, this one was 4-5.

Since the 9th, I haven’t had any sex since I’m terrified. I wouldn’t have even thought anything was up until my period was so late, and my cycle is usually regular, within about four days of my calculations. I’ve taken six home pregnancy tests between October 10th and October 25th, all negative.

I haven’t noticed any breast changes, but I may have gained weight, my skin’s been breaking out more, I’m hungry more often, and a tad bit moodier.

I’ve been hoping that it’s stress and my hectic sleep schedule (September and October I pulled all-nighters regularly,) and working on school work non-stop. I’m so stressed out about this actually that I’m putting off three major assignments due in different classes tomorrow to type this all down and hopefully get help.

Anybody have a similar experience or have any suggestions?

October 27, 2010 at 6:56 am
(352) Natasha says:

I think you should wait to see if you get your next period. I know that it’s nerve racking, but if you don’t think about it (which is also hard) then you can work on your school work. And when the time comes, if it is late, then go get a test. The only reason I say this, is because the most accurate time to take an at home test is after your period is late. If it is still weird, then go see your doctor. I hope this helps.

October 27, 2010 at 7:00 am
(353) Natasha says:

I have 3 kids. I had my 1st when I was 14, and by the grace of god my mom was there to help me with everything, and I decided what was best for my son. Which was to give him up for adoption. Then 5 years later, after I was married, my husband and I had a daughter. She is now 3, and the I cherish her every day, because of my sons. My last child was born December 31st, 2009 @ 5am, still born. My husband and I was another child. So are we trying now, no, because we know if you try it won’t happen. But are we doing anything to prevent it, no. Because we want it to happen. My periods are always on time, with in 4-5 days of my calculations. Last month it came almost a week late. This month it was early, but it was wasn’t my normal flow. Which is heavy, all the time, until the last day. And ALWAYS lasts 7 days. But this month it only lasted 4 days. With my last son, I produced ALOT of milk, and I still have some left, it has been drying up, and not as much coming out of breast, when I express them in the shower. Well, since I have had kids before, it is hard to tell if there any changes in my breast. Except this one, I noticed tonight in the shower, that there is more milk coming out. And since last month we have bought a lot tests. Well, all of them have come back neg. And I’m tired of wasting money on them. That is not my only symptoms however. I am tired ALL the time, I do not like chocolate, and I have been craving it like CRAZY I can’t get enough of it. Every now and then I get sharp pains in my breasts, nausea, and I believe that’s it. I get panic attacks, and ever since my daughter, they only come when I’m pregnant. And I have been getting them as well. However, with all 3 of my kids, I have only had one symptom besides gaining weight, which is cravings.

October 27, 2010 at 7:01 am
(354) Natasha says:

Back in May/June/some of July my periods were coming every 2 weeks, so went to the doctor, and he said that I was not ovulating, and gave me some meds to get that straightened. And said that if it does not work then he will put on fertility pills so we can have our child like we want. I am scarred to DEATH of this, because I am a VERY little woman. And everyone that I know that has been put on these pills had more than one child. My body is not big enough to carry more than one at time, with out making it hard to the children to grow, and gain weight. So my question is, based on that info., could I be pregnant, even though the at home tests have said no, and I have been having my periods?
(Sorry so long.)

Hey guys. . .
I’m in a rather odd situation right now . . . I had unprotected sex the first weekend of this month and I just got my period . . . it’s a bit lighter of a flow than I normally have, but I have unbareable cramps and lower back pains (I usually don’t have those issues) haven’t had my period since Mid september . . . so I’m a little weirded out by this. My boyfriend and I were drunk one of the nights and I don’t fully remember everthing ‘we did’ that night . . . but the following night, he came inside me- but I think it may of just been pre- cum. Idk . . . Also, for one reason or another, he fell asleep while he was still inside of me that same night . . . I know that sounds weird, but he fell out during the night sometime anyhow :/ Maybe this is all just stress . . . My boyfriend just passed away on the 17th and I haven’t been sleeping or eating . . . :/ I do not know what’s going on. Im a 19 year old girl who is very confused and scared. Please help me :/
Thanks so much,

(357) Ellie says:

So I live with my fiance and we have unprotected sex all the time, but I’m on birth control and have been for over 2 years now and have never gotten pregnant. Last month my period came on time, but instead of the normal, cramping, 7-day stint, it was 2 days of very light flow with only one real clot on the first day. This whole month I’ve been feeling ‘funny’. I’ve been eating a lot less than I normally do, my tummy is tingly, I’ve been having hotflashes out the whazoo, and I occasionally feel nauseous. My period started basically on time this month, but I have almost no cramps, which is extremely odd for me because I have dismorea, which is super painful, debititating cramps during periods, and an ovarian cyst. Plus I had pms which i never have. I am so worried because altho me and my fiance would love a baby, this is probably one of the worst times financially for us to have one. I have a pregnancy test, but I’m too afraid to take it. Please, if anyone could help with advice, I’d rally appreciate it.

(358) Lenni says:

My period was a week and a half late, and the cycle was about a day shorter than usual. Since then, I’ve taken a bunch of home pee tests, all negative. I’ve had a lot of white/clear odorless discharge and appetite changes, plus it feels like I’ve gained weight, especially in my stomach. No breast changes.
I’m supposed to be ovulating today, and in the middle of the day, I started getting lower abdominal pressure a lot like the first day of my period usually. I’ve had ovulation pain before, but only every couple of months.
I always always always use condoms, so it’s a stretch that I’d be pregnant, but my body just feels so out of whack and bloated…It doesn’t help with my already stressful schedule to have to worry about being pregnant or that I’m in pain.

October 31, 2010 at 11:44 pm
(359) Lenni says:

Also, my upper abdomen is killing me with sharper, more stabbing pain (maybe just indigestion, but it’s worth mentioning) whereas my lower abdomen is more pressure pain an discomfort.

I am some what similar to #19, Dawn. I had my period, and it ended. All in 9 days. I get tremendous headaches, legs swelling, and my uterous is achey. No pain, or heavy cramping. Just annoyance! It just hit me that two past pregnancies were the same type of feeling. So, I will give it a while before I get my hopes up. But I seriously do not think it is another period so soon. I just had it 9 days ago, on the 24th of October, and it is the 3rd of November. The churning in my uterous is very very mild. I have a polyp on my cervix that is non-cancerous, and it is the size of a small pea. So, I hope that it is not causing me the annoyance. I will be getting it removed in two weeks. So, I am in the middle of : am i pregnant, Is it another period so soon, or is the issue with the polyp? So, I will wait and see, only time will tell me what i need to know!!!

(363) Sarah says:

Jeez, so many of you are only kids. I really feel for all of you. Let me sum up nearly all of your answers in one comment:

1. If you have had intercourse without protection, there IS a chance that you may be pregnant, EVEN if he pulled out before ejaculating. One word ladies- precum. There’s a reason why “cum” is in that word. It’s been debated that precum actually has the highest concentration of sperm out of the whole sexual process.

2. If you have had unprotected sex but got your period shortly after there is still a SLIGHT chance that you may be pregnant.

3. If you believe there is ANY CHANCE that you may be pregnant ann also have period-like symptoms and/or pain in the abdominal/uterine area, meet with your doctor IMMEDIATELY. This could mean complications with pregnancy or problems with your own physical health that have not shown up until now. Both of these can be very serious. It’s best to get checked just to be sure to keep you and possibly even your baby safe.

4. If you experience any pain during your period ranking higher than a 5 on a 1-10 pain scale, you should visit your doctor (reguardless of whether or not you’ve had sex). This could mean you have an inflamed ovary or other reproductive problems that can be quite serious.

5. TAKE A DEEP BREATH. Don’t be scared. Go to your doctor if you feel that anything is off in your body. You’re body is an amazing machine that tells you when it needs to be fixed. Going to your doctor can help you find the answers to your physical problems in a safe and confidential environment and better protect your health for today and the future.

Good luck ladies (and concerned boyfriends/husbands)!

My fiance’ and I always have unprotected sex. 2 Months ago, my period was 12 days late and I began to get pregnancy symptoms (swollen, aching breast, weight gain, excessive peeing, ect.) I don’t have any morning sickness, but I didn’t get any with our first born. I took 2 tests so far and both where negative, soon after that I finally got my period but I still have aching, swollen breasts and back pain, and excessive pee. since then, I’ve had another period, but I still don’t feel like I should rule out the possibility of being pregnant. Why else would I be having these symptoms continuously?

Hi all. I have recently been through a tubal miscarriage at 7 weeks. The tests I took at early pregnancy both came out negative but I was INDEED already pregnant at the time. If only those tests came up positive I would’ve looked after myself better and wouldn’t have lost my baby. So my message to you all is, until you are absolutely sure either way look after yourself as if you are. And see your doctor for HCG test to give you an absolute answer. All the best!

to all the teenagers on this forum or just reading this forum

i am 26 years old and have a beautiful little girl. i have been lucky. i got pregnant when i was 22. her father is a very good dad. BUT we are not together. we get along about half the time. it has been very very difficult. i wait tables and i am going to school for nursing. i have NO social life. i have lost many “friends”because of my priorities. sadly, this is the happy side of unprotected sex with a BOYFRIEND.

like i said, i have been lucky. there are so many jerks out there (i know a few) who will be non existent when you have a baby. there are soo many STDs and some are so common and just viruses you dont even know you have them until you get tested. stds can mess your world up on a whole other level. please use protection. im not perfect ive made the same mistake im preaching about since ive had my daugter and i know exactly what unprotected sex can lead to! i have a guy friend who is one of those nonexistent fathers. he is a great friend but not a good father. i have a close friend with HPV. i went with her to the doctor and was her moral support. this happens. and it can and will happen to you if you do not use protection. there are some very serious stds out there with some very serious symptoms that can kill you. like i said ive been lucky, but please dont rely on luck when it comes to sex.

ok ladies Im going to share a little story with you, during my first pregnancy I had my period for the first 2 months, I had bleeding like a regular period for the first one but not as severe cramping and regular bleeding for the second one and very light cramping, Ive had in my blood line pregnancys with periods during the pregnancy, it does happen to some people, and some thing I want to share with the younger girls, Im not going to harp on you about having sex at a young age Im sure you know what you are doing and what you did wasnt the smartest thing to do, but having your virginity is something to be proud of, sure you get some heat cause it seems like eveyone is doing it but in the end when you get in a very commited relationship when you decide to take that step I mean not when you are still a teenager it makes it special.

I have a 7 month old baby and this past month my period was about 2 weeks late.. I thought i was pregnant again.. I didnt want to be but it is what it is.. It turns out I got my period today and I was told by a health care professional that if you are more than 2 weeks late and ur pregnancy test is negative that the odds are ur not pregnant.. My 5 tests were negative and I got my period so i guess she was right!! thank god.. i was soo worried.. I got my period and im still worried, even tho i kno im not.. My hubby and I never have used protection and I have never been on birth control either.. I had to be put on meds to have my 7 month old.. I can say I had never been so worried.. Yes, my sister did have a light period her entire pregnancy.. she said it was different than a regular one.. light or jus spotted.. that also makes me feel better bc mine is a full blown one.. i am so relieved, but if u have had ur period and the test shows up negative ur prolly not pregnant! If u havent had one and ur test are negative go to the dr or test again in a week.. it takes a week for sperm to fertilize the eggs.. and I seen some of u were worried about having unprotected sex then gettn ur period a week or so later, your not pregnant if ur period is on track and its a normal period for you… With my pregnancy I was not even late for my period and the test said Positive.. I lacked about 3 days of being late and e veryone kept sayn.. your pregnant.. i wasnt late and i didnt think i was.. so to shut them up, i took a cheap 1 dollar test from the dollar store and it was positive.. which proves a cheap test is jus as accuate as an expensive one!

Hi everyone,

Basically I went on the pill after having a coil and started to miss a few. Last time I took a pill was beginning of October. The last 2 AF Oct and Nov have been short (about 5days) and some what heavy. I did a test but got BFN. I haven’t exactly had any symptons except maybe veiny boobs and a bloated look(if these count) but too anxious to go to a Dr (since i really wanted a BFP). My mum had AF with younger brother so I know it’s possible just wondered what symptons i could look out for as I wait for them to continue as normal or die of in anticipation.

(376) not so smart says:

Alright, so a week and a half ago, I lost my virginity. we didn’t use a condom and I’m not on any birth control, but he didn’t cum inside me. I got my period the next day (it was actually supposed to have come a few days before that) and it was really short. like, I got it for 2 days and it went got spotty and then it stopped. two days ago, I got my period again. it started off normal and now it’s back to the spotty thing. for the past few months, my period has been very strange; sometimes it’s really bad and really painful and other times I barely have cramps, but it always lasts at least 5 days, so this is really worrying me. I was told that since it hasn’t even been two weeks, I shouldn’t be exhibiting any signs of pregnancy. As far as I know, the spotting/period is the only thing that could be construed as me being pregnant. I know we should use condoms, and we have them now. it was just a spur of the moment kind of thing. it was 12 days ago that I lost my virginity. I know I could be pregnant, but is it likely? I’ll take a test in a few days when I go home for christmas break, but I’m just wondering how likely this all is. please let me know, I appreciate it.

About 4 weeks ago i had unprotected sex with my bf, like 10 minutes after wards my vagina got swollen, like the whole inside and everything. Now i am having pregnancy symtoms, like, sore breast, and my breasts have gotten almost a whole cup size bigger. constipation, headaches, and some pressure in the lower abdomen area, my legs have been aching at night (like growing pains, but worse) also i have been getting really queezy at night, but no puking. I have recently just had my period, like a heavy flow period, it is a brown-ish red color. I am 17. Could this be my hormones changing or is there a possibility i could be pregnant? Also I heard from someone that if you have a period, you should wait to take a pregnancy test, is this true, and if so how long?

Any feedback would be highly appreciated… 1st I know that you can get your period during pregnacy as my mother had her period for first 5 months with her first pregnacy… To my issue ….. I got my last period on 31st of dec …. Hubby n I were having protected as were not planning a family just yet… On 16th Jan the rubber broke we realize after the heat of the moment what had happened, ….. Then on 25 Jan I had spotted a cloudy pink coulour it was only enough to be 5 drops, i went straight to the doctors for a test even knowing its too early to tell but tried my luck anyway.. It was negative, iv always had regular periods (28 days) lasting 3 days but iv NEVER had spotting before, 2 days later on expected date I got my period, I was pregnant to my husband 3 years ago before we were married being too young and unmarried we decided it wasn’t the right time and we aborted, I remember my 8 weeks of pregnacy well has I never forget the morning sickness, heat flushes or the moods along with the rest of the band, before my period started I felt sensitive to everything around me from smells to sun on my skin all this with constant yawning from tiredness after a healthy night sleep and want to sleep again all afternoon, thisrt craving of cold water, turned of all food apart from raw fruit n veggies ( I’m a full blown vego anyway) …… Still sensitive to all these in flushes, any thought and feedback and advise is appreciated. Thank you

(386) butterfly says:

‘ UNKNOWN X X” …. womans periods don’t always come 28 days apart, as every woman is different, ESPECIALLY during your teen years while your still developing and you periods wont always be regular , this is perfectly normal, Every woman goes thru these changes, PERFECTLY NORMAL !!

Id like to also add woman that live together get there periods at the same time, so if you have moved in with a friend over time your body’s will catch up with each other until you both get your periods on the same day…. so if you have moved in with other woman recently this might explain the changes.

On the same note if your sexually active don’t risk having semi unprotected sex ( applying protection half way thru) as men can pre-ejaculate and get you pregnant, if you think there is a chance u might be pregnant go and get a test at the doctors, and know that the chemical that makes a test positive isnt released into the blood steam until 2-3 weeks (in most woman). hope i was of some help :)

February 2, 2011 at 11:36 pm
(389) Butterfly says:

dear ebony

Your only 15 USE PROTECTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

because you were bleeding after i need to ask was this the first time you had sex?

If not then do you know when your period was due??
when you get a period mark it on your calendar and keep track of when your due, … the day you get your period count 28 days and mark that day this is when your due but because your in your teen years and still developing you might be a few days off due date this can be a few days ebony or late. this is perfectly normal !!!

as for you feeling sick go to the doctor IMMIDENTLY and get a pregnancy test and bear in mind the chemical that makes a pregnancy test positive isn’t released into the blood stream until about 2-3 weeks ( in most woman).
talk to your mum as soon as you can i know your 15 and freaking out but your mum would want to help you she loves you and wants the best for you don’t hide anything from her…. as for your boyfriend …… both of you are responsible for you selfs, talk to your mum and see a doctor !

Hi I have been married for 7 months now and I’m trying for a baby . I have never taking the pill I don’t drink or smoke and it’s just not happening for me . I have irregular periods but today I have started having spotting with brown like stains tender breasts and period pains but not as bad as when I have my period I’m a week and a half early . Is there a possibility I could be pregnant ?

February 16, 2011 at 8:54 am
(391) Butterfly says:

Wishful thinking will confuse you, if you really want to know if your pregnant get a blood test and if you really tying to have a baby then talk to a female doctor about your fertility…… Seriously wishful thinking u will covin e yourself your breast are tender and swollen but also keep in mind between periods there is a chemical released around time of ovulation that makes your breast more sensitive then usual and also they seem harder or more swollen, if your spotting it might be due to cyst on ivories or something so have a pap-smear and test talk to your doctor openly !!! But Goodluck with it all i hope your husband and you are successful :)

(396) Courtney says:


I’m a 21 year old girl with a couple of questions. Let me start with my situation. The first day of my last period was Jan.19th. I ended up going out with some friends the night of the 22nd (after my period had ended), and went home with a guy that I’ve known for about 3 years, and we have had sex before. We always use protection, and he always checks the condom afterwards.

However, I am over a week late for this month’s period. I have been extremely tired, hungry, and have been urinating frequently. I also feel moody (slightly irritable, which is uncommon for me), and on my recent trip to visit family approx 5 and 1/2 hrs away from where I live I found myself feeling very neaseated. I never get car sick, and by the end of the drive I was exhausted.

I have taken 2 home pregnancy tests, and a urine test at the doctor’s office. All three came back negative, so the doctor I saw sent me for a blood test.

I’m worried that I might be pregnant, but tonight I started experiencing slight cramping, and moderate bleeding. Usually the first day of my period is accompanied by extreme cramps which cause me to vomit, and a very heavy flow.

Any insight or advice anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated.

On Jan.22nd I went out with some friends and ended up going home with a guy that I have know for a little over 2 years. We have had sex before on numerous occasions, but we always use protection, and he always checks the condom afterwards.

Lately though I have been feeling different. Some symptoms include, frequent urination, neasea (especially motion sickness while driving), hunger, gas, indigestion, fatigue and I am over a week late for my period.

I have taken 2 home pregnancy tests and a urine test at the doctor’s office. All three came back negative, but due to my symptoms the doctor sent me to get a blood test done.

(404) Scared says:

can anyone tell me if i’m pregnant or not?
so we had unprotected sex at around april 9th and he had pulled out. i got my period on may 2nd when my last period was april 2nd and ended around the 7th. it was usual length, usual heavy flow for 5 days. i’ve been feeling not quite right lately…but at the same time..i’m having my final exams and is super stressed out that i had lost 6 pounds already. i’ve had slight nausea and felt better after i took some pills for gas these few days and my breasts are sore and hurt but have severely reduced already today. it only hurt yesterday. also..these symptoms never really came until the day i started worrying about whether i could be pregnant or not. the last time i got pregnant symptoms was when i thought i was but turned out that i got those symptoms cause i was just too worried. so i’m not sure if its the same case again. i’ve lost my appetite recently but i’m not sure if its due to exams. my shoulder and back aches but they seem like the way they are everytime i overwork so i’m not sure.. i’m really scared…it feels like my stomach acid is reacting on me and im not sure if its the stress or whatsoever..

Its extremely unlikely that you are pregnant if your period is normal/heavy 3-5days long. It is possible to get a very light period on your first month as the hormones take a while to settle into pregnancy stage!

Hey there,
I noticed that the older women have been saying to the teens to stop having sex. Alright I’m sure u had sex when u were young, and couldn’t want to grow up. I’m 16 years old. I’m 5 months pregnant with a little girl. and happily engaged. I have my period every month, and I guess it’s normal. Every website I go on young girls look out for the older womens help. And the only thing u have to say isnt nice or helpful? There’s something wrong with you old ladies. I’m sorry to come off so ignorant but someone needs to say it. Thanks and for the young girls out there who need a friend. I’m here (:

June 12, 2011 at 6:54 pm
(409) voice of reason says:


I have seen so many young posters on this site that I thought I would offer a bit of truth from both sides. Sex can be scary as well as pleasurable, and you need to know exactly what you’re getting into — without the biases of morality.

First off, some reassurance. I am telling you now that, while wedlock can certainly be beautiful, you have committed no universal “sin” by having sex unmarried. Certain religions decry sex out-of-marraige, but that is hardly universal. Sex is not wrong. However, having sex can often be VERY unwise.

If you aren’t sure of your partner’s loyalty and health (marraige doesn’t promise either), sex is risky. It is vital you use birth control *AND* STD protection in this case. If you are not prepared for the possibility of pregnancy, PLEASE DO NOT HAVE INTERCOURSE. WAIT UNTIL THE TIME IS MORE APPROPRIATE. YOU WILL SAVE YOURSELF A LOT OF STRESS. :)

For those of you who are concerned about pregnancy:
THE ONLY WAY TO BE 100% SURE YOU ARE NOT PREGNANT IS TO GET TESTED BY YOUR DOCTOR. But try not to worry yourselves sick, girls; take a deep breath. The female body can act very erratically; healthy pregnant women can have periods, non-pregnant women can miss periods. If you have been using your birth control with no mistakes, it’s very unlikely you’re pregnant. I know it can be terrifying, but do everything you can to find out if you’re pregnant early, when you still have many options.

If you have questions or you just need someone to talk to, don’t be scared to tak to me. I won’t judge you, try to convert you, argue abortion morality, or scold you for making a mistake. I can’t tell you for sure if you’re pregnant or not, but I can help you understand your options.

I am all for waiting for a moment you truly feel comfortable, and only you can decide what that is. But if you didn’t wait, don’t be ashamed. Just be careful, all right?

best of luck, stay healthy & keep cool,

I had the implanon put in 2 weeks ago. Had unprotected sex the same day(fri that it was put in). and went on -sunday doing the same thing. That monday night i took the day after pill . Am i pregnant?
I have gotten it taken out and now my period has started. but i was cramping up bad and having back pain. Its too early to take a pregnancy test but i have been taking them anyway. And its negative but i think its 2 early to tell. AM I ? PLEASE HELP

June 13, 2011 at 6:39 am
(411) suze says:

It doesn’t sound to me like you’re pregnant, hun. Implanon should protect you from pregnancy immediately if it was installed at the appropriate time — call your doctor and ask if s/he didn’t tell you beforehand. Cramping and back pain could both be normal, considering all the horomones going into and out of your body over the past few weeks. But the only way to know is to get a blood test. You’re right that it’s probably too early to trust a store-bought pregnancy test, especially because of all the changes going on inserting/removing your implant. If I were you, I’d wait a week, then test yourself again. If you get a positive, head to the doctor and get an official test, which is really the only way to know for sure.

best of luck!

(412) elizabethn says:

I’m 16 years old, and have unprotected sex, but use the withdrawl method.
i usually have sex at least 3 times a week. After my last period, which was the 18th – 22nd of May, and about 4 weeks after, i had spotting for a week.. (had sex when period stopped to spotting) i usually get my period every 2 weeks. it wasn’t the usual flow of my period, exteremly light, and didn’t have to wear a pad or tampon. I didn’t get any cramps, or my usual PMS, just extremely moody, Was this my period, or implantaion bleeding?
about a week after that happened, I got more bleeding, which i thought was my period, this was a bit heavier, then the spotting, but again not the usual amout of blood flow i get on my period. This was on and off for three days. 6th – 8th of June. And had no PMS whatsoever, except exteremly moody.
At the moment, i’m not suffering many ‘pregnancy symptoms’, but a few things i’m having, is being extermely moody still, very sore lower back (there is spider veins in the area) bloated stomach, occasional headaches, tired, and i find it very hard to concentrate at school, let alone get out of bed.
I’m almost due for my next period, i think?
but any suggestions, or similar stories to mine would be very helpful.
Thank you.

Ok I am nineteen and started takin yaz four days before I lost my virginity. Almost every day for two months almost I have had unprotected sex. The first seven times we used protection. The tests I have taken say negative but my breasts feel larger and hurt occasionally especially around the gland and I can see veins in them more. I get abdominal to low genital sharp pain that only lasts a moment and sometimes get the same sensation Under my left breast. I get dizzy and nauseous lately and I feel bloated. I am in the second week of my third pack of pills but had sex while on the last white inactive pill. I pee more often and my stools seem tougher. I wouldn’t mind a baby but I know I’m not ready.I really need answers cuz I don’t want to freak him out. Please help…

Well, I just want to let every girl know there are consequences with things you do. But I would say just keep calm. Get him something he really likes and some how tell him whats going on. Me on the other hand had sex several times… (not happy about that) and I’m scared I might be preg but not too worried about it cause well I am having my period.. But I get random pains more then usual. No sickness just pains every now and then. Can someone help me? I take test and always neg. No insurance atm so I don’t know what to do. =/

Hello everybody,

I have a question… I have pcos, 2 children, and 3 angels in the sky. Last year I went 5 months without a period until my ob/gyn produced one in Feb 2011. Since then my periods have been very normal cycles ranging from 30-33 days and bleeding med-heavy 4-6 day. I’m losing some weight around about 10lbs so far.

Finals for college was stressful back in April and begining of May. But I had a very normal period in april. And my was very different for me.. I usually have alot of CM than I see blood. But that period I had no symptoms the boom back pain and then theres a period. It wasn’t any cm, it was very light, day 2 was light medium, and day 3 was brown discharge and I stopped bleeding early that morning. 2 weeks later my breast hurt and so does my nipples, I had decrease sex drive, very hungry. Then my period for june comes and goes. Hot flashes, cervix position went ot high and soft then to medium position to hard. I thought I felt the opening of my cervix for me to bleed. but theres a little knot there. I’ve had MOST pregnancy symptoms since than. Breast tenderness, spider veins, sensitivity to smell, nipple soreness, itchy nipples, increase of appetite, increase of sex, and cramping I took a test on Saturday and it was negative. I’ve slept days away lately to and also im 11-13 days late period was due June 22, 2011. My husband has been eating late nights which isnt normal.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? IS IT HORMONAL OR COULD i still be pregnant? sorry so long

After 2 weeks i had my normal periods (when and like it had to be).

Hey Lovely people of the Forum,
I have been doing some research before i posted this. And i am getting conflicting opinions so i am trying this method out. Hopefully writing it out will ease some of the anxiety as i am a terrible worrier.

I “fooled around” with a guy. (seems to be the common phrase and i know how it sounds but i think my stupidity deserves to be ousted) on the 26th April. He never entered but his fingers did. I know all about the pre- ejaculation stuff and thus there is a slight chance of pregnancy (which is what has me worried.) Had a completely normal period four weeks later bang on time for the right length etc. So i thought i was in the clear. Came on again this month (June) and finished on the first of July) but it was strange in that i wasn’t as crampy as i normally I am, nor as heavy, although i did bleed for the full 7 days) and now (on the 16th) i feel really nausous (spelling?) and bloated. It has been like this on and off for 2-3 weeks.

I am an incessant worry wort and i know this but does anyone know what it could be? I think i have scared myself half to death now reading all the different scenarios and i know these symptoms can be symptoms of pregnancy (but also of many other things) A second opinion would be much appreciated.

(422) Tamaki says:

Okay this is my story i’m 19 years old and me an my bf had sex frequently. The 2nd time we did it i got paranoid and started to think about me
pregnant like getting dizzy etc. But then i realized that I wasn’t and that’s only me getting all paranoid, so after that i didn’t think about getting pregnant after we sex because it might just me again playing tricks on my mind and my body, until that day, we had sex near my ovulation day and I didn’t think that i might get pregnant, after 3 or 4 days After sex I had my period, and I wasn’t thinking that im pregnant as in 0%, until One da I’ve noticed that i peed frequently than before, that’s the first time that has happened to me, i don’t really like to drink a lot, so it’s kinda confusing why would I pee so many times that night, then this thought came on my mind ‘pregnant’ i remembered that peeing frequently is also a pregnancy symptom, i shrugged the thought away, thinking that i’m just playing tricks on my mind again, then I had the most weird craving ever, I hate sweets, especially cakes or muffins, but then I started to crave for chocolate cake which is really weird. And I get dizzy on the car, it’s rare for me to get dizzy on the car unless i’m sick or i’m on the back seat. And i feel nauseous sometimes, i’m checking my breasts if they got bigger and I think they didn’t, i don’t want to think or imagine things again, and after 2 weeks i had my period but was 2 days late, i’m thinking if I should get a pregnancy test or not, what do you guys think?

Okay, so my boyfriend and i have been having sex for the last year now and about 5 months ago I started the pill Yasmin, but about 3 weeks ago i went off the pill and we have unprotected sex two times after that and my periods were due on the 8th and i didnt get them till the 19th and they stopped on the 23 rd i mean they lasted at a normal rate…. but before i got my period i was really freaking out as i had little kind of bumps around my nipples and they were really sensitive, and my nipples in general were very sore and i have never had that, and i have just lost a bit of weight but lately ive been eating quite abit and gotten abit bloated… and for about a week before i got my period i had quite abit of cramping. and i never get that….. any one got any idea?

(428) DUH says:

Seriously people? It sounds like you all just want something to fret about. If you think you’re pregnant, count from the last time you had sex was and wait three weeks. Then, take a pregnancy test. Negative means you’re almost definitely not pregnant. Positive means you are! In most of your cases YOU decided to have unprotected sex. You brought this on yourself and now you want to worry about it. Go to the health department and ask for condoms! If you’re below the age of 18, go do your homework instead of having sex. Good grief.

(431) Confused and sad says:

Last month, I have signs of pregnancy like constantly feeling hungry (even right after i ate), lots of white thick discharge, lower back pains, nauseous, and when I’m eating it’s as if the best food I’ve eve tasted but after like 3 bites I feel like throwing up, my boobs got bigger than its usual size, and i feel sleepy all the time. I was 3 days late for my period. I took a test on August 23rd and it came out POSITIVE so i told my bf about it and got really stressed out because he doesn’t want it and he wants me to abort it. :( i have been crying a lot and got really depressed. After 2 days, i had brownish discharge and it became really red. I thought i had a period but it was a light flow. then my BF came over and i told him i already have a period. when he left the house my abdomen hurt really bad so i went to the bathroom and sat there for a few minutes, then a really huge blood clot came out about the size of my hand (seriously) but i had to like cut it cause i cant get it all out, then after a few minutes a huge blood clot came out again about the size of my palm. then i took a pregnancy test and it came out negative. Is it miscarriage? because its the first time that i’ve had an experience like that. i feel really emotional right now, because i knew i was pregnant (because the home pregnancy test’s resulted positive). have any of you guys experienced this? i’d really appreciate it if any of you guys would reply to this. thanks guys.

my opinion is all you have to start thinking that bringing a baby into the world is not a joke and girls not only use protection against pregnancy but also for all the diseases out there, and please if you are pregnant do not get an abortion, dont blame the poor baby for our ignorance ,there are so many mothers that cannot have children and wish to be mothers, the best answer for all your question is with a professional, good luck to all

Ok heres my story im a little confused. I need opinions on my situation. My fiance and i have been trying to have a baby well it wasnt working out for us so we gave up on trying and to convince myself i went out and got my belly button pierced its so cute and i love it well anyways, I was a lil over a month late on my period my last one was aug 5 and i ended aug 9 my normal length. well i didnt have another one til just recently on oct 9. heres why im confused weve been having sex every other day cuz my dr has us doing tests for fertility and stuff. but i started oct 10 my first day is always light for me and this time my first day was horribly heavy n clotty and so was day 2. the first 2 days i was peeing alot and a few times i almost couldnt make it to the bathroom. well then day 3 comes along and im still the same with peeing but the flow is a lil lighter. then day 4 comes around and im basically done with very lil spotting till day 5 day five was lil spotting still then it stopped then at 10 o clock at night my fiance and i got a shower i douched and right before i douched i got a slight to mild pain in my abdomen then when i cleaned i had alot of clots again. then after that slight pains for an hr continued sounds like a miscarriage, but heres where it gets weird. the next day comes around im still spotting ive never went past 4 days well

October 17, 2011 at 6:21 pm
(441) monkey18 says:

day 6 was just spotting so day 7 comes around and its very slow and it came to an end well i showerd n douched again that day and all was fine no pain or clots. my fiance and i went upstairs and called my mom and told her wat was goin on for advice and she said it could maybe be implantation bleeding after i had my period it just continued to do its thing. but im concerned because i just dk wat to do. well then after we got off the phone with my mum his mum calls us and randomly asks her son is ur fiance pregnant. we go not as far as we know she knows nothing of whats goin on yet cuz she wants a granbaby so bad. well she says why she called and she says im craving apple dumplings and irish bread. she had that last yr when her neice ended up preg and shes due next month. so now heres me goin through this crazy state and dk wat to think or even do. so on day 7 of this my fiance and i had unprotected sex like always and it was fine during well right after i had abdominal pain again and i started bleeding and i have felt really hungry and ive been snacking lightly but ten min after i feel empty like i havent ate in days. and not to be gross or anything but also gassy n moody and pooping alot to. and im now on day 8 of light spotting again. can someone please give me there advice on what u think is goin on please and thank you alot<3 email me separetly to shastamccoy2011@yahoo.com

(446) Yes says:

Yes, it is absolutely possible to have a real period while pregnant if you have a double uterus or some other abnormality. 0.1%-3.2% of women actually have a double uterus. Although it is not common, I have been reading a lot of people comment and say that it is impossible to have a period while pregnant. Their condescending nature just irked me and intrigued me to do more research. It bothered me how they were making out some women’s comments to be idiocracy, so yes, a real period while pregnant is possible. Although, I do agree that when most people say period they just mean a form of vaginal or implantation bleeding that may be mistaken for the cyclical phenomenon, menstrual cycles can co-exist with pregnancy.

Here’s my story. Me and my boyfriend have been dating for almost 3 years. We have always had unprotected sex but I was always on birth control. Well we broke up in late Aug so I stopped taking it and haven’t been on it since. We have been back together since beginning of Sept,still having unprotected sex. I always start period 1+/- the 21St of every month. But a few weeks ago my nipples were very sore, I was Moody, my stomach felt as if it were bruised on the inside when I pushed on it,
and had to clean

November 23, 2011 at 3:36 am
(449) megan says:

Sorry about that. But I had to clean my ears out constantly..(which is a rare pregnancy symptom) but I had alot of thick,white discharge then two days later i thought i was spotting but then i got my period and it’s very heavy,(which is normal for me) with clots.I have extremely bad back pain with mild cramps and I have been bloated but I think it’s just from being on my period. If any of you have advice I would greatly appreciate it. Email me at: megan.a.brown9@gmail.com
