How to Get Pregnant: I know of no mother or school teacher or other person teaching you about the birds and the bees that would tell you it is possible to get pregnant by simply being touched. Pregnancy occurs when one is ovulating and exposed to semen inside of the vagina. Without sperm it is impossible to make a baby. Also bleeding or having a period means one is not pregnant. You are not pregnant. ...Read more

Probably not: Many things can change your normal period. Of course pregnancy is the # 1 concern, so you should rule that out with a pregnancy test. If you are using any type of hormonal birth control, your periods can be lighter. If you have had a significant change in your weight, up or down, your periods can change. ...Read more

Here are some ...: I assume you've "gurgling + sharp pain", which may result from irritable bowel; so, watch what you eat & drinks and see if improved after behavioral modification in lifestyle & BM. If worrying about pregnancy, do HPT in a wk after missing period and repeat it in a wk if the first test was (-) & still in doubt. More? Seek pro-evaluation & counseling timely. ...Read more

I had an unusually extremely heavy period last month then this month it was 2 days early and lighter than normal with clots like usual. Am i pregnant?

Probably not: Regularly timed periods (not counting the amount of bleeding) are usually associated with not being pregnant. Pregnancy is associated with an absence of a period. Take a test, home pregnancy tests are very accurate if you're concerned and are sexually active. If you would like a more regular period, consider birth control as an option to help regulate. ...Read more

My periods r heavy period w/ dark blood. And this month i'm having a med. Flow w/ bright red blood. I've taken 4 pregnant test & all neg. Why is it diff?

Normal: Some women will see variation in their bleeding from month to month. So this is probably normal. If you have had a recent normal period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. Obviously, my next advice is to please use birth control if you are going to be sexually active plus condoms to help prevent sexually transmitted diseases. ...Read more
