I havent missed a period but was experienceing some pregnancy symptons nausea and throwing up,very tired, lightheadiness,dizzy, sore boobs(they feel like the weigh a ton), very moody and irratable, peeing alot, heart burn and some smells make me nausea. So i took two prego test and the first one came out negative but developed a faint blue line. So i waited 3 days nd tested again it came out positive almost right away but it disapeared. So now i dnt know what to do. Did i test to early. Its been about 8 days since my last period and im still having light cramping like am going to get my period any day now but it comes and goes and i feel it in my lower back and around my belly button sometimes. if i am pregnant it would be my first one so its a little confusing so any advice would be great. Thank you..

Hi I I had really tender nipples and was very crampy as at 15dpo. AF was expected to have arrived on the two days after but came a day after. ( it was jus like a period was painful and had clots ) however it lasted only 2 days instead of 4. I still feel crampy with back aches a day after AF. I took a home test and had a BFN , went to the clinic and took another test it was still a BFN

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

You're not pregnant - a test and your period (even if shorter than usual) are confirmations of this.

Hi I was just wondering is it normal to have 3 periods in under 6 weeks?
My first period only went from the 10th -12th ( started late in arvo on the 10th and finished early morning on the 12th) of May. my second went from the 25th - 28th of May and the third period went from the 6th-9th of June . Now I am cramping and feeling really tired all the time is there a chance I could be pregnant?

Hi Anon

No, this is not normal but it is also not a sign of pregnancy. 

You are likely very tired because you are bleeding far too much and may be lacking iron (anemia) which makes people tired. 

You need to see a doctor about this and also ask for blood tests to see if you are anemic - you may need to take iron supplements. You may also have a hormonal imbalance, causing this bleeding.

My period ended a day or two ago before it came on I was cramping a little, nauseated, headache, sleepy, increased urination, moody, and my feet were swelling. When my period came on all of the symptoms were still there. I'm also sooo forgetful. Now my period has been gone for 1-2 days and once again the symptoms are still here. Me and my fiance are TTC and I went 8 or 9+ months without a period and BFN.
I got my period after the long time spand without having one on April 23/24 & my recent one was may 26/27. I think I'm pregnant but I just wantedto know if it possible . Lol and now they itch!

Hi Anon

A pregnancy test will let you know if you are pregnant. 

Good luck to you!
