Could i be pregnant if my period came a week early and lasted almost 7days?

Probably not, but...: If still worried about pregnancy, a urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred). If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Last month my period was a week late. Will it be late like last month or back to normal this month?

"Late" periods: At sixteen, you do not ovulate each month at a specific time, and when ovulation is delayed, your period will occur 14 days later, unless pregnant. After a few more years, ovulation will generally be predictable, and your cycles will as well. This is not a concern at this age. ...Read more

Could breakthrough bleeding for a week cause period to not come(on BC)? bleeding lasted for a week and ended last week, period should be this week.
