I normally have a very heavy period and I did just two weeks ago. But starting yesterday I have been having very light bleeding. It started with just a little pink on the toilet paper. Then it was brown. And now I am bleeding a little more but still no clots or anything like the normal when I'm on my period. I'm on the pill but I stopped taking them yesterday because I'm worried I could be pregnant. Is it possible this could be implantation bleeding? I've been having symptoms which everyone says is impossible at the stage I would be at. And a pregnancy test said negative()but maybe it's too soon to tell?. Last week I was sick and was having a hard time eating anything. Then that finally went away(figured out frequent small meals helped) but then I had back pain, frequent headaches, and my belly's been itchy? Not really sure if the itchy belly is a symptom or not but it's been driving me nuts. I'm also totally exhausted(I slept 12 hours one night and was still tired the next day). At some points the cramping has gotten just as bad as when I'm on my period but still no clots and no heavy bleeding like my period. I'm just a little thrown off as I was positive I was pregnant, because I've thought I was before but nothing has EVER been like this. I was positive that I was yesterday until the cramps got as bad as they are on my period. Now I'm just wondering what is up...the bleeding seems watered down and its reddish brown in color.

Forgot to mention, my favorite junk foods don't sound good to me anymore. I've been drinking a couple of glasses of milk a day, and I don't like milk?......odd.....I'm actually a slight bit lactose intolerant, but it doesn't seem to be bothering me like it usually does...

I know nobody has wrote on this page in a long time, but it sounds like some of yall are going through the same problems as I am now. I am young so I do not know if it is different from younger to older women. But I hope somebody could please help me out. I was due for my period on the 7th of June and it did not come, I started spotting before that for about 5 days. Well, I started experiencing very tender breast nearly about 2-3 weeks ago. I then started cramping for no reason when I would go to pee then I became constipated for about 2 days. Everything then stopped. Until last week about Wednesday the 22nd of June. All I want to do is sleep but it was very restless sleeping. I started hurting in my lower back and having random headaches. Saturday the 25th I had horrible heartburn to where I couldn't even eat. Then Tuesday on the 28th later in the evening I started becoming very light headed and sick. (the feeling you get in your throat you need to throw up [& I don't EVER throw up]).I also started lightly bleeding very bright red, but when I went to take a hot bath I had some discharge floating around in the water it was clear and darkish brown and orange. Well it all stopped, then today it started again but was steady, not heavy but steady? I had taken a test about two days ago at night about 10:30pm and it came out negative? What do I need to do? Please someone help me.

Me and my boyfriend had sex feb 18th using an "ultra thin" condom, and of course it broke. It is now the 22nd and I'm experiencing light bleeding and spotting. My symptoms include: sensitive breasts, visible new veins on each breast, nauseous to a lot of smells, never hungry, crazy dreams and always tired!! I'm 15years old and in need of some serious help/advice!

I see you were scared in February. In my nonprofessional opinion, 4 days was too soon to tell according to physical symptoms. How are you now? (I was a teen pregnancy when I was younger.)

Pregnancy tests are not that expensive. If you think you might be pregnant, I'd take one. It's just peeing on a stick or in a cup.

If you are in college, ask around. There is most likely going to be a student health clinic somewhere on campus. Our clinic offered family planing lessons, pregnancy tests, and access to the pill or condoms. One might think it would be both now.
