Traveled and was on GM diet. Now, Two weeks early period accompanied by nausea and cramps in upper abdomen along with a few blood clots. Am I pregnant?

Unlikely: If you did not have unprotected sex since your last period, you are not pregnant. Your symptoms may be due to hormonal imbalance. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
