Q:

Hello,
I had unprotected sex 3 weeks ago. But on Feb. 12 I got my period, usually my period comes very heavy and get painful cramps but this month my period came very light with light pink/orange color and did not get any cramps. Could I be pregnant or is it just my period changing?
ps, my breasts have been hurting on and off, could that be part of pms?

Hi Anon,

An average period lasts between 3 and 7 days. It might be good to see your OBGYN and explain the changes in your cycle.

Here's a link that can help

Hi Anon,

You might want to retake a pregnancy test.  But if the changes in your period continue it might be good to see an OBGYN.  Many other conditions can cause changes to your cycles.

Best,

Daisy,

and also is it normal for your period to last 11 days?
I'm going to retake a HPT.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Have you taken a pregnancy test. That might be the first thing you should do, to be sure if you are indeed pregnant. Breast tenderness is a symptom of PMS and also Pregnancy.  Usually a women ovulates during day 11 to day 21 of a cycle. Meaning, from the first day of your period.

Here is a link that might be helpful.

yes I took a pregnancy test a week before my spotting occur and it came out negative.
Also before my period came I was having painful cramps on and off and at times felt really light headed and dizzy spells.
