Am I pregnant or something else wrong?

I started bleeding a week and three days early from my period. It started off lite and got heavier. It would go lite and heavier throught the day. It's been right days now and I'm still bleeding. My initial period should start in two days. I took a HPT and it was negative. Could I be pregnant or something else wrong? The day before I started bleeding I got real nausea after eating toast but never again since then. Breast are tender and been a little emotional. I'm also on birthcontrol and highly sexually active with my boyfriend and we don't use condoms. Please help

I've been on birthcontrol for about 8 years now. I'm taking a 28 day empress. This bleeding isn't has heavy as my normal cycle. I never had to wear a tampon or pad. Just seems a lot when I go to the restroom. But it's also not lite spotting they say you get when pregnant.

Hello Anonymous,

Are you on Enpresse, a 28 day birth control pack that contains seven "reminder" pills? Your period will usually begin while you are using these reminder pills.

Again, I think you should tell your gynecologist about this.

Hello Anonymous,

You are not pregnant because you have had heavy vaginal bleeding.

What type of birth control are you on? How long have you been on birth control?

A woman's menstrual cycle is regulated by hormones. Something disrupted your hormonal balance. I suggest you contact your gynecologist. Report what is happening. Your doctor is your best resource to determine what is going on.

Please keep us updated.
