Im not even sure where to begin with this...First, I have irregular periods, and cant remember exactly when my last period was, but im almost sure I shouldve already got it again. I began with this cramping, some what like menstrual cramping, but it didnt exactly feel the same. Ive noticed an increase in my appetite. And my jeans are really tight in the waist all of a sudden, some jeans I cant even button. Ive noticed pains in my lower back, one was a very sharp intense pain and lasted only a second. Then the pains turned into more of a dull achy pain. From what I hear, your breast get swollen, or tender. Mine dont feel sore at all, my nipples were a sore a few days ago, but not anymore. I havent actually vomitted, Ive felt naseous, and dry heaved, but no actual vomit. My mood has been unpredictable here lately, I'll get extremely pissed off over little things, then just as fast as I got pissed off, I'll be happy again. And get kind of sad out of the blue. But mostly its back and forth of me being mad and happy. My discharge has increased also, and I feel constipated. Im sorry im practicly writing a novel here, I just need to get another opinion on this. Im 16, turn 17 in December. Im still in High School. I have a job. My boyfriend also has a job. The only thing that is really worrying me right now is, im in foster care. Ive been in foster care for about 4-5 months now. My foster parents love me, this was only going to be temporary but they asked if I wanted to stay until I graduate and I agreed. My mom said awhile back, if any of her foster girls got pregnant she would keep us, she would just "wring our necks". But from my 'symptoms', do I sound pregnant? Please take your time to read this and respond, I atleast need one other opinion, I would really appreciate it.
You have a lot going on in your life. Your symptoms could be contributed to the overwhelming stress of it all. However, let's not leave it to chance. Since you aren't sure when your last period was, let me ask if you have regular periods like every 28 days or so? Have you missed 1 full period cycle? If the answer is yes, go purchase a pregnancy test, if it reads negative, don't have sex,(if you chose to do so, use a condom), retest after your next due cycle. The sure way to find out is to go to the doctor and get examined. I know you are only 16 and is probably apprehensive about anyone besides your boyfriend finding out but you need the support and love of your foster parents. Please tell them what your biological mother threaten to do if you should ever become pregnant, also inform your child protective services case manger of this. Good Luck and if you aren't pregnant, please speak to a doctor about preventive care.
Yes, I do usually have my period 28-32 days after the previous one. They are irregular meaning, lasting anywhere from 5-9 days. I have a doctors appt on the 3rd for a pelvic exam, and I mentioned how I was feeling to my dr and he said that its very likely that I am. He agreed not to say anything to my mom just yet. So I guess ill find out on the 3rd...
The jeans only fit tight in the waist, I cant button them. But they dont fit tight in the legs. It feels like im kind of...bloated. Alot. Even when I get my period I dont get this bloated to where my jeans cant fit. Im going to the doctor on the 3rd, im hoping ill fimd out then, but if not, ill just get a simple pregnancy test from a store.
right now i am kinda in your situation, i am 17 and dont know if im prgnant or not and im in foster i have most of the symptoms that you have and i wish you the best because this could be a really difficult situation to go through.
