Hi Ria,

I appreciate how eager you are to have an answer, but you will need to wait until you see your doctor on August 2. Your physician knows your medical history, can do a physical exam and order any necessary diagnostic tests, including blood tests and an ultrasound.

Please update us once you see your doctor.

Hi.I need help please. I hope you find time to read and respond to it.

Im 21, i have irregular period, usually it occurs once every two months. I last had my period around the last week of December 2015 and i never have it again since then. I had sex on february so Im worried that i might be pregnant so i took an hpt last april but it came back with negative result. i took another test around the first week of may and its still negative, that gave me sort of relieve since im not feeling any pregnancy symptoms at that time.
I became sexually active since i decided to live with my boyfriend last may 23. We are doing it everyday without using any contraceptive (not even withdrawal) cause we want to have a baby. I am feeling signs of pregnancy for about a week now, (sore breast with ugly veins and darker nipples, nausea, vomiting, craving for food, unusually hungry, too weepy, increased urinating, tired and sleepy all day) i took htp last week, and its still negative.

2 days ago, i felt cramps on my lower abdomen but its not as painful as when i had my period and there is a spot, i know its blood but its brownish not red. Still feeling the cramps until now, but i still dont have my period, and im still feeling all the symptoms, i dont know what to think. Is it possible that i am pregnant or its just all in mind?
Is it possible that i ovulated and got pregnant even though i never had period for 6 months already?
Any answer will be higly appreciated.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. The best advice I can give you is to call to schedule an appointment with a gynecologist. The gynecologist by speaking with you and obtaining a medical history, will do a physical exam, and order blood test, will be able to determine why you have irregular periods and have not had a period in months.

Keep in touch,

Hi Anonymous,

I am glad you have an appointment with a gynecologist, who will probably order a blood pregnancy test. That will confirm whether or not you are pregnant.

For now, trust the positive result and take good care of yourself.
Write down the questions as you think of them, and bring the list with you to your appointment.

Hello Anonymous,

I can appreciate how much you would like to know that you are pregnant. Have you had an ultrasound and a blood pregnancy test done? Have you been examined by a gynecologist or primary care physician? Have you had your thyroid hormone levels checked?

Hi Anon!

It doesn't sound like you are pregnant, it sounds like you are entering perimenopause with irregular periods and an expanding stomach. This is an unfortunate aspect of mid-life that many women deal with.

Have your doctor evaluate your hormonal count.
