If you had a period, you are not pregnant. About 25% of early pregnancies are lost, mostly due to chromosomal defects in the embryo. Usually the only manifestation is a slightly heavy, delayed period. If you are planning to get pregnant, see the doctor now for advice and antenatal vitamins. Wish you good health!
