I have been experiencing all kinds of strange symptoms, on searching the Internet it appears most are linked to pregnancy.
Basically my period was 5 days late. When it did come it wasn't like my normal periods. It wasn't heavy at all although there was more than just spotting, but it only lasted 2 days. I have had some other symptoms too. Just before my period I was struggling to get up in the mornings despite loads of sleep. I was also feeling tired in the afternoons too. I have been feeling dizzy, and going to the toilet more often. The latest things I have noticed is the appearance of two freckles on one of my nipples, and darker veins on my breasts leading to my nipples as well as on my shins. I have also had metallic taste on the roof of my mouth. I have also had an increased amnt of discharge (sorry for the detail!!) I have not done a hpt yet, as I'm not sure if it's too early? (the bleeding stopped on sun evening) Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your help in advance!!!

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms (delayed periods, spotting, increased sleep, increased tiredness, dizziness, frequent urination, appearance of veins on breast, metallic taste in mouth, increased vaginal discharge) are suggestive of pregnancy. Visit your gynecologist for a thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately) if you suspect to be pregnant.
Take care.
