User Profile
i have always had irregular periods since i was 9. im now 24 with a 2yr old 1yr twins. after both births my period came within months and back to it's irregularity. as of March 22 my period was very light, so much so that i didnt even need a pad or tampon. i never had one since. we use condoms and they never broke. I recently went to the doc and my pregnancy test is negative.i did however have a very high blood pressure (150/90 i think was the number) which in my case is very unusual since i usually have very low blood pressure. my skin has been breaking into rashes all over my body as well. also ive had constipation, diarrhea, and cramping similar to those associated with a period. is this all from stress?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe could be suggestive of pregnancy if you have been sexually active around your ovulation time (due to contraceptive failure). You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist again for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation would be done to look for the underlying cause for your altered periods and symptoms that you describe. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms and regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
