Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have been sexually active after your last periods during your fertile days (and if you are not on any form of birth control measures) then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. The symptoms (lighter and shorter periods, abdominal cramps, nausea, dizziness, altered taste in mouth etc) could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any new symptoms. Consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
