I know you probably get this alot, but i took an ept at about 2 am yesterday and it had the control line and a very very faint vertical line. i took another one that afternoon and it came out negative. My period is due anywhere from september 1-8 and its only the fifth, but im having mild cramping. I normally have horrible cramps, but this is different. My cramps are very mild and i felt nauseated and a sharp pain in my abdomen for a short period of time can you please tell me if its possible im pregnant but its just to soon to tell for sure?

Hi Sammay3233,
Thanks for your question, and for finding EmpowHER. Unfortunately, or fortunately--depending on how you look at it--symptoms of pregnancy can be pretty similar to those for your period coming. Our cycles can range from month-to-month, and can change in intensity at any time, depending on stress, sickness, hormones, etc. That said, the surest way to know if you're pregnant is to wait for that missed period, then take a pregnancy test. Try and not be too stressed out while waiting. Many suggest waiting until a week after missing your period. So if you don't get it, take another test. At that time, you can decide if it warrants a visit with your doctor. And in the future, you can protect yourself from anxiously awaiting for your period by being diligent about birth control. If you are sexually active, you should be responsible and do what you can to keep yourself from getting pregnant if you're not ready for that, and from getting infected with STDs.
Good luck and let us know how you're doing.
