Please Help!! :c Confused and scared.

Hi, I am 15 years old and I have been having a pain in my lower right abdomen for about seven days that has been mostly when I move, but it has become mild to the point where it only hurts when I breathe inward deeply. Two days ago I had a light brown/ pink stain in my pantyliner. Yesterday I had a slightly darker stain yet it was still light, and today I had a bright red blood spot. All of the staining happened in the morning and didn't occur throughout the day. I am frightened by this. I have an irregular period and my stepmom told me that this was normal, but I'm just really scared if something might be wrong with me. The only thing sexual I do is masturbate, and I always wash the object I use with soap and the floor of the bathtub, too. So I shouldn't be pregnant, right? (I'm sorry, I know how I get pregnant but I'm very paranoid since I share a bathroom with a male)

Please help me and provide an explanation for my paranoid conscience. :c
Thank you for reading and I hope to hear a response soon!!

Hello AA2443,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for coming to us with your concern. I am so glad that you mentioned the lower right abdominal pain and spotting to your stepmother.

AA2443, you are not at risk for pregnancy. I understand that you have irregular periods. How long have you been menstruating?

At age 15, your hormones are still adjusting to regulating a monthly menstrual cycle. This would explain the spotting, which probably indicates your period will start soon.

Some women experience pain or cramping about midcycle. This coincides with ovulation. The pain is felt on the side of which ovary is about to release a mature egg. This is another way some women know that their periods will start in the next two weeks.

Please relax because there is nothing to worry about. I agree with your stepmother that this is normal. As you mature, your periods should become more regular.
