Hello everyone,

Alright so my period is relatively regular, if it's ever out of wack it's only by a day or so and that's not often at all. I'll give a little background to support why I am confused. In march, my period was 2 days early and barely there so I got a blood pregnancy test that came was negative. In april, my period lasted 9 days and it was normal i guess but that's way too long compared to usual. In may, my period was 1 day early and lasted 8 days. Now, it's june and my period was 4 days early which is rare, with cramping and low abdominal cramps.. it just felt different. But it only lasted 4 days and was heavy for the first two days and light for the rest.

I took a home pregnancy test last month (which was negative), because I have also gained stomach weight for some reason and my breasts have gotten bigger. I also have had cravings for sweet food which isn't usual for me either. I thought about the possibility after i noticed things were off, so I don't think it's psychological. This last weekend I vomited 4 times in the span of maybe 2 hours. Ask details if you like, but I'm not sure if that matters (it was orange and frothy by the end and I couldn't keep water or even pepto bismol down).

Anyway, I am so confused and if it's not pregnancy, then what could it be?
