Some Spotting, Slight Cramps and Tender Breasts

Bri (age 20) writes, “i had my period may first and during ovulation week me and my husband had sex many times, this last week i had some spotting, i am so much more tired and i am hungrier than normal, also i have had slight cramps along with the spotting, my breasts have become tender and i am urinating more often, i took a home pregnancy test but it was negative on saturday, could i still be pregnant?”

Are you trying to get pregnant? Were you on any type of birth control medication? If fertilization did occur, it may be too early for a home pregnancy test to detect any hCG in your urine. Your symptoms could indicate that you are pregnant, but they also could be indicative of other things. I’d recommend taking another pregnancy test this Saturday and, if that one was negative, taking another one the following Saturday.

I recently has my last period at the end of last month. Only about two weeks later I started cramping and spotting. Then a week after that my nipples became very sore to the touch. My partner uses the pull out method. I have no idea when my period is supposed to start since it has been so irregular. Any advice?

  9. Okay so my situation is kind of confusing, I was a week late on my period last month. And it lasted like 4 days and my boobs hurt and everything seemed like a normal period. Then 13 days after I started having weird bad cramps and spotted for about 2 days.. Very light pinkish color… And then 2 days later my boobs are extremely sore. And I’m not supposed to get my period for another 2 weeks… And I haven’t been sexually active since before my missed period last month. You think it’s just my body changing or something else ?
