Not growing: 5 years after your first period you should be fully grown so a growth spurt is not likely. If you have an increasing appetite it is probably from other factors. Increased calorie needs can result from new levels of exercise, new body requirements (pregnancy), or nutritional deficiencies (iron deficiency anemia). ...Read more

Period late by 3 days, frequent bathroom trips, increased appetite, brest discharge, with cyst. Can i be pregnant?

NO Guessing: Doctos do not guess when it comes to diagnosing pregnancy. Your period is late. It is time for testing. The frequent urination is not a sign of pregnancy but a sign of infection. ...Read more

Increased appetite?: It is hard to say with the limited information whether you are pregnant or not. But, an increased appetite can be due to a large amount of other possibilities.

HadUnprotectedSex no I'm craving sweets, increased appetite fatigue on & off nauseous could I be pregnant sometimes bloated period isn't due yet?

Hard to tell: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more
