Missed period for 5 days and now I'm bleeding

I'm 26 years old and married. I was supposed to have my period on 27th November but I missed my period for 5 days and I was assuming that I was pregnant since the symptoms I had was similar such as Sore nipples, Fatigue, backaches. I also had high fever about 38 degrees celsius. I went to the doctor on my fourth day of missed period and the doctor said that I have early pregnancy symptoms although my urine result was negative. So the doctor gave me Folic acid and some medicine to sooth down my fever.

The next day before noon, I was feeling much better but then I had cramps. After I checked, I found out that I was bleeding which was a total disappointment for me. My bleeding was heavy and now I'm on day two. But my period is somehow unusual for me. I have stomach pain and dizziness. At one point before I went to sleep, I feel nausea. This happens until now.

I'm not sure if I am pregnant. I know it's not implantation bleeding cause my bleeding was heavy.

Does anyone have this kind of symptoms while on their period? Is it possible that I'm pregnant? Should I check again after my period?

Hope someone can answer to my doubts as I'm hoping to have a baby.

Thank you so much and god bless.

Hello Jenn,

Thanks for your question to EmpowHer!

If your pregnancy test was negative, it could be your period was simply late. You could take another pregnancy test two after your period ends to confirm this. Sometimes periods can be late; illness or stress can be reasons why.
