Dear Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Correct. Once an egg leaves the ovary, it travels through a fallopian tube toward your uterus. A soft lining in the uterus is where a fertilized egg may attach for pregnancy to begin. If pregnancy does not happen, the lining breaks down and the blood and tissue flow from your uterus, out of your body. This is your period. Having sex during your period will probably not result in getting pregnant as your ovulation is several days away. However, according to the American Pregnancy Ass. this applies to a 28-30 day or longer cycle. *If your cycle is shorter, for example, every 21 to 24 days, this means you are ovulating earlier in the cycle. Sperm can live inside you for 2, 3 and up to 5 days. You could have sex towards the end of your bleeding and then actually conceive 4 or 5 days later with your early ovulation. The probabilities of getting pregnant while on your period are very low, but the possibilities are there.*

It's likely you are not pregnant, and your period is just late, which can sometimes happen. If your period does not come within the week or if you miss it, take a home pregnancy test to be sure.

Today I m having my period but the flow it is not heavy as I normally have. After I poop I feel pain in my lower abdominal. I also feel full in my breast. Yesterday I feel numbness and tingling on my legs. It shows up veins.

Is it normal? Or is there any other reasons?

I'm glad your period came. Lower abdominal pain can mean many things. You may be constipated or have a stomach bug. No one can tell you over the internet what might be going on. Don't hesitate to see a doctor if you are feeling ill.
