Years of having cycles, I can count to the day when I will get the "visit". This past month, I was 6 days late. Pregnancy is a possibility. I did finally start to which appeared to be a period. About 2 weeks later, I am having another "period," however, this one has been quite light in nature, have a headache, cramping and light bleeding. Mood swings have been apparent and I am exhausted all the time, can't get enough sleep. I have just turned 35, 3 days ago.

I'm supposed to have my period in less than eight days, but I've been having similar symptoms to pregnancy. Painful/sensitive nipples, tiredness, headaches, bloating and lower abdomen cramping, slight frequent urination, and moodiness. I'm hoping that I am pregnant it's what I've been praying for lately my 5 year old needs a sibling and I very much enjoy and miss the pregnant feeling. It was the best feeling I've ever experienced; an immense excitement for me.

I've been with my boyfriend for about 4 months. We're both allergic to latex, and birth control pills make everything worse for me, but we are still careful in other ways. Recently I've been getting the signs of my period. Tender breasts, bloating, mood swings, hunger, but I'm not due for about another week or so. So I haven't missed one yet, but it's been like this for about 2 weeks. My lower back has also been bothering me for about a week now. I thought it was his bed, but I've been here for a while and I have the same bed at my parent's house so that couldn't be it. I'm going to wait another week or so, and if no period comes, I'm going to the doctor.

Well the last time I had unprotected sex was in May. Around the last days of June I started feeling really tired and I cant be standing up for a long time because my legs hurt a lot. I still have my period every month, but they are not the same though. Sometimes I feel like throwing up but this does not happen all the time. I had an appointment they did a urine and a blood test and both of them came out negative, but since the beginning of this month (August) I started feeling like if something moves inside my belly.

I'm on a pill which is meant to stop my periods but it hasn't, but I have gone a month and 27 days without having one. I'm tired, feel stressed easy, my breasts hurt, my tummy has got bigger and I am craving a lot of chocolate.

I just turned 16. My boyfriend pressured me into having sex for the first time about two months ago. He wore a condom. I haven't had my period since. My period is usually really abnormal, but still. I'm scared. Then again, my only symptoms have been the not getting my period thing and having to pee all the time.

I haven't had a normal period since the first week of June; my last possible period was the first couple days of July. It only lasted 2 days and was just some light spotting. Lately I haven't been able to find ANYTHING that sounds good to eat, and half of the time when I eat something I either get a nauseous feeling or I actually get sick. I've been running a temp for about 2-3 weeks now. I've been getting headaches, especially if I am on the computer for a while or watch TV for any length of time. I've got other symptoms too, but I am afraid to test to find out for sure.

I have been feeling bloated and my breasts have become quite tender and larger. I missed my period and took a test, but it turned out negative. I have frequent trips to the bathroom (morning and night) and I am often hungry. My boyfriend thinks I am pregnant, but I don't know what to make of it although I think I am. This for me is a new experience as I have no children.
