I had sex with my ex bf on Sept 1 and 3. I am expecting to have my period on the 21st Sept. However, I ve been experiencing lightheadedness, lower back pain, nausea on the 8th Sept until now.
I feel bloated and have gained weight. I am paranoid about it so I took a pregnancy test and the result was negative.
Is it normal to have period symptoms 2 weeks before the actual period?
Or I might be possibly pregnant?

You are probably ok. If you had sex on the 1st and 3rd you probably didnt even ovulate for another week later if you are not expecting your period until the 21st. You usually ovulate between 12-14 days before your next period. Now that being said, sperm can live in your body up to 5 days, so you probably are cutting it close.

I would say wait till your period is late and then take another test. You would not feel any significant symptoms that early. Most people do not get any symptoms until they miss their period.

Hi its me again. You gave me a smile in my face when I read this. And you're right!

Now I have this dilemma again. I know its my fault, but I am practicing unsafe sex.
I had sex last Sept 30 and Oct 10. I am expecting my period last Saturday (Oct 1Cool. I am now scared because its already the 20th and I havent gotten my period.
I took a pregnancy test on Oct 19, negative result was indicated. I am not sure though if I need to take that early or I might be experiencing some delays only.

I normally have a regular menstrual period. To give you a background, I had my period last month 2 days earlier as expected which was Sept 18 instead of Sept 20.
So I expected my period this month coming on the 18th but it havent.

Do you think I might be pregnant?

If a pregnancy was delaying your period, a test should be reading positive by now. However, wait a few days and test again if it still doesn't come.

You should probably look into some kind of birth control so that you don't have to go through this fear and anxiety. The worry you're feeling right now can be easily avoided.

Weird period, pregnant or not?
I had my last normal period august 18 and was expecting next period around september 18-23 but usually my period sometimes delay for a week and advance once in a while 3 days before. September 25 I had a slight blood so I wore pad I thought it was gonna flow heavy but it was not so I did not wear pad after that. It lasted for 6 days since september 25 and the blood was just good enough to stain on toilet paper not even on my panty and thought it was weird. I took PT Sept.28 and negative.1st wek of October, I went to health Department to take PT but it was negative too. October 12, I took PT again and the result was negative till I decided to wait for next period expected around Oct. 20- 25. Now then today october 27 I see a sticky white and red blood on the toilet paper and hoping having a normal period. I put a panty liner hoping the flow will get heavier but nothing. early in the morning when I got up in bed of course went to the bathroom and no blood in my panty liner but saw 2 red mucus in the toilet and when I wiped just brownish color on the toilet paper. Am planning to take a PT again today and this is really weird for me since I had always normal period.
