Hi, I had my period on Aug 13th and it was very light and lasted till Aug 31st. In Sept I had light bleeding for about three days which I only saw when I whiped. My periods are really crazy. I took a pregnancy test on Sept 21st and it was negative. Can I still be prego.

Thank you for your question. Pregnancy tests are pretty accurate, usually 99% as proclaimed.

Crazy and wild periods happen sometimes. It is pretty common to have a light period one month, a horrible period another month. Periods are what I call unpredictable sometimes.

There are so many things that can cause irregular periods such as stress, fear of pregnancy, new exercise regime, etc. If you are really concerned, try another pregnancy test to be sure. You can usually purchase one for $1.00 at a local dollar store. It may ease your mind.

I hope this helps.
