Am I pregnant?

Hello, three months ago i thought i was pregnant, my period ended up late but i got it, then the second month i got it again but I read online you can still get your period and be pregnant. Finally, there's a dark line from my belly button to my pelvic area and i read that means you're pregnant. Please, i've never even had sex before and all I did was dry hump with my boyfriend with four layers of clothing on. i'm absolutely terrified of this dark line, because there's not other explanation. Help me please.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to us.

Be aware of the integrity and credibility of information that you read.

A woman can experience spooting during her pregnancy. That is not s menstrual flow.

Before you start a period, progesterone levels decrease and the lining of the uterus is shed. That is what you see when you have your period.

A fertilized egg implants in the lining of the uterus. During pregnancy, the lining stays intact so the embryo grows and develops.

If you havve never had unprotected vaginal intercouse, there is no way that you could have become pregnant.

Linea nigra is the vertical ine that extends from your umbilicus or belly button to your pubic area.

It is always there but become darker during pregnancy. Hormones are responsible for the darkening.

Anonymous, I do not know why this is happening to you. Please consider scheduling an appointment to be evaluated by your gynecologist.

Keep us updated,

Hello Anonymous,

So light that you do not notice it.
