Hi, I been having pregnancy symptoms my period ended 09/22 and I start trowing up and having all the symptoms on 10/04. My period was due 10/13 and it came the 10/14 afternoon very light which is not normal on me. (I'm regular, with medium- heavy periods) I have to change it at least every hr or two. The thing is that now I was just 4 days and very very light. Cramps the first day and that's it. I finish two days ago but I have been spotting brown. I did pregnancy test and it came negative. Might be too soon? What's happening to me? I'm so confused .

Hi C24maria,

The throwing up, nausea and tiredness are all signs of pregnancy, but I am really concerned when you tell me about your vision going white and getting dizzy. You definitely need to get that checked out, especially if you are going to be caring for a young child and this can be dangerous if you are picking her up, driving a car etc. 

The dizziness can be may things, but some of the common reasons are high or low blood pressure, low blood sugar or dehydration, but not really considered a symptom of pregnancy. 

Can you make an appointment to see your doctor ASAP?

Please let me know!

Hi C24maria,

Thank you for visiting the EmpowHER community and for sharing your question. Even though your period was light, it was still your period so its very unlikely that you are pregnant. What are some of the other symptoms you are experiencing?


A pregnancy test can be taken 10-14 days after unprotected sex and when taken correctly, will certainly be accurate by the time your next period is due. 

I hope this information helps you! If you have further concerns, taking a pregnancy test again is a good idea or call your doctor for further instructions. He or she may want to give you a physical examination or a pregnancy test at the office. 

I hope this information helps you and you get answers as soon as possible.
