Right...: If you have regular menstruation cycle, then you are not likely to be pregnant. The premenstrual cramps do not tell you the status of pregnancy. Remember that the best way to prevent pregnancy is to abstain from sex or always use condoms.

I'm currently 6weeks pregnant and I'm having slight cramps and wen I used the restroom an whipped I seen a pearl pink color, what does this mean??

Mild cramps: Are fairly common during pregnancy. The pearl pink may be a tiny amount of blood swirled into vaginal secretions. Small amount of bleeding can occur in early pregnancy - and most often there is still a healthy pregnancy. Significant cramping or more ample blood - advise your doctor. Take care.

We weren't thing to get pregnant we used protection but my nipples hurt and I have cramps it's been a week does this mean I'm pregnant?

No!: The most accurate way of checking is to get the beta chain human chorionic gonadotropin test. It is accurate within 5 days. Also, if you were really trying NOT to get pregnant now is not the best time to be educating yourselves about it. For the man, insist on condom use. If he refuses, break off your relationship. For you, there are loads of options. Planned Parenthood is a good starting point!

Hi I'm 2 weeks late and have little cramping and headaches but no other signs of pregnancy what could this mean?

Irregular periods: There are lots of reasons a persons period can be late. If there is a chance you could be pregnant then you should repeat a home pregnancy test. If it is negative then waiting a few weeks to see if it returns is reasonable. If it does not then it is time to visit your friendly obgyn doctor to discuss irregular periods.

Been trying for 3 months for a baby, but at 5-7 DPO I had pink stuff on my toilet paper with cramps! Is this mean I'm finally pregnant? Or what?

Pregnancy test: The only way to know is to get a pregnancy test one week after a missed period. Pink stuff on toilet paper is like reading tea leaves at the bottom of your cup and wondering if you're going to be wealthy someday. I wish!
