Hello, I do not believe I am pregnant as I just had my very regular period. It stopped after three days(a standard duration for me) about four days ago. Lots of clotting and red blood which is also very normal for me. But I am currently experiencing post period cramping (Very mild, 1-2 out of 10 on the pain scale) and may have had left nipple discharge. I was also washing my hands at the time that this happened, so it could have been a splash that got onto my nipple, but I'm freaking out none of the less. Breast cancer is in my family... and so is about six other types of cancer hahhh. But I'm only 22 and I can say the day and time my periods come so I don't think that is what I am experiencing. I am also experiencing nipple sensitivity, but I believe that is because I recently got off of birth control for the first time in four years.

I am also experiencing diarrhea. Diarrhea started about 7 days ago, and it almost always comes with PMS symptoms and stays through my period. I have had cysts in the past, so I am familiar with those incredibly painful symptoms, which makes me think this cramping is not from a cyst.

I am sexually active, but I always use a condom and I have yet to experience any breakage or slippage. This will be my second period off of birth control. I was on the pill for about four years before this. My health insurance has become unaffordable when it comes to contraceptive coverage and so I am relying on condoms right now.

From the "doggy style" position I am experiencing pain during intercourse. As well as any other alterations of the from behind positions such as spooning and leg-over-shoulder-sideways that stimulates the upper part of the vagina - something that normally felt great when I was on birth control.

I have never tested for endometriosis, but... I don't know. Maybe there's another solution out there?

OP* here: I don't have any health insurance right now and I am incredibly low income. Unfortunately, Planned Parenthood is no longer affordable because of Gov. Rick Perry taking away all of the funding for women like me that work Part Time and cannot a trans-vaginal ultrasound to test for Endo or get breast cancer screenings. The prices are reduced, but it's still 84 dollars to get a check up. and then 30 dollars for a pack of birth control.
