    My periods are like clockwork since my first period @ age 11 (28 days, 5 days long, heavy flow, cramps & bloating day 1)….until recently. My very last normal period was July 25. August 7, had sex with my boyfriend at the time then a week later I was feeling really nauseous, but I thought I ate something bad. A few days before my period was due I started bleeding, I thought this was my period. Wrong! I was spotting, which I never done. My periods were always 5 days long and heavy with cramping and bloating. This “period” didn’t even fill a panty liner and no cramps. I have back pain, frequent urination, extreme hunger, nausea, vomiting, headaches, pelvic pains, breasts are sore, &veins going across my breasts. This week my “period” was spotting again. I had negative urine and blood tests, but symptoms scream pregnant. Am I pregnant or is this all in my head?

    Hey there, I am NOT a doctor but I would say you have cause to investigate further….Have you recently started excising more or aggressively? Have you had any major dietary changes? Those can also be factors in a missed or abnormal period….so can stress…..Have you been screened for any sexually transmitted infections? Another possibility is that you could have miscarried with low levels of HCG in your system so you may not show up on a test but you could possibly be retaining the baby, once again, not a doctor here but a possible scenario to be aware of, watch for a fever and if you develop a fever with the rest of these symptoms and especially with severe abdominal pain please be seen IMMEDIATELY….There are women who have had “phantom pregnancies” sometimes the fear of pregnancy or the want of pregnancy can trigger the body to have all the symptoms….For now, my best advice would be to refrain from all sexual contact at least until you know if you are pregnant or not, that way if you are not, you won’t continue to risk pregnancy….I was 5 weeks along with a negative blood test with my first, showed up on a urine test at 7 weeks, she was hung up in my tube but slipped out and with it, caused SEVERE pain and fatigue….Don’t hesitate to demand an ultrasound!….I hope you come back and let me know what you find out! Listen to your body and make sure that your voice is heard by the medical professional who sees you, you have a right to know answers and be provided services that can give them! Love Meg
