Hi I am 27 years old and have never been pregnant before. I have had some unusual periods before but this one is much different along with the symptoms. I had my last period July 12 and it lasted its usual 3 days because of my BC. I am not supposed to get my next period for about two weeks. Im currently on Lutera and have never had any problems with it. I have been feeling extra bloated lately, constipated, nauseous, lower back pain, some cramps, headaches, and feeling extremely tired. On Monday I felt fine and that night I was woken up by stomach cramps and extreme nausea. I threw up once and felt fine afterwards. I couldnt eat much most of the next day but then felt fine later in the day. I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative. Last night I had a brownish discharge and a few cramps and this morning I was bleeding bright red with a few clots. I have major cramps and feel really tired. I have missed a few pills here and there because I can never remember to take them and my boyfriend and I have had unprotected sex a few times here and there. Could I still be pregnant and not know?

If these symptoms are from pregnancy, you should have more than enough hormones in your system to get a positive pregnancy test.

Missing pills are a sure recipe for disaster. Find a way to make sure you take them every day. Missing pills can also cause the symptoms you are describing.

its been 8 days since my last post. i bled for 7 days very very light with cramps 15 days after the start of my last menstrual cycle. Now on the day that my next cycle was to start i spotted brownish discharge looking just for one day with slight cramps. i felt dizzy this morning. I am so tired, that I feel like I cannot make it through the day. My lower back is really sore and I feel like sometimes I cannot sleep through the night. I woke up a few times because I just couldnt hold my bladder and had to pee. I have been insanely hungry all the time and i am craving sweets like no other when I usually dont eat any at all. My boyfriend made lasagna today, my favorite, and the smell of it made me seriously nauseous. I have had some weird twinges in my abdomen. Somtimes its kind of tingly. I went to the doctor the other day and she thinks I might be pregnant or that I might have miscarried without knowing due to the bleeding. But she said she cant be for sure without a test. I have an appointment tomorrow at the Reproductive Health Care Center to have a urine and blood test taken to confirm. I am kind of hoping that I am because I'm at that age, but kind of scared all at the same time. Any insights would be helpful. Thanks.

Im feeling a lil confused...ive got my period in january only for five but its usually 7. the month after, i bleed again for five days. But during my period I went for my depo shot. My boyfriend & I wanted to take an extra step. But this month, im feeeling nauseated, im exhausted, more headached, loss of appetiate, constantly thirsty, & peeing lots. But I've taken a pregnancy test, & I got zilch. Could it just be my nerves playing on me?
