I am 16 year old girl and i am very nervous i might be pregnant. I just ended my period about 2 weeks ago and i had sex twice without pertection a couple days after getting off my period. It feels like im on my period again but the bleeding is heavier and its more brown with clots. Im not sure what to think and i havent taken a test yet. I dont know if im having a miscarriage or what, but ive had some pretty severe cramps since then. Please help me, i am beyond scared. Thanks.

Hi Anon and thanks for your question.

Irregular periods with timing that's off and a changes in the flow are pretty common in younger women. If you start seeing a lot more clots than normal, or clots that are larger than a quarter, you should see a medical professional.

Clots can be caused by a miscarriage, a fibroid and/or hormonal changes. If you do not have a gynecologist then you may want to seek care at an organization like Planned Parenthood which will provide low-cost, confidential health services. Hope that helps!
