I had my period early and short since then I been feeling pregnancy symptoms could I be pregnant?

Take the test: If you want to know if you are pregnant, take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.

Maybe. Maybe not.: Can do a urine pregnancy test, if worried. 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.

Had light pink discharge, started my period which came early and was short, and now I have very light pink discharge 2days after. I am sexual active.

See doctor: Any new or apparently abnormal vaginal discharge should be medically evaluated. Colored discharge (pink, yellow, greenish, etc) suggests infectionm, and at your age (20) STDs are high on the list of possibilities (gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas, others). See a doctor or clinic ASAP for exam and testing. Also ask partner (s) if they have symptoms, especially discharge from the penis. Good luck!

I had my period early and it was short since then I been feeling pregnancy symptoms but I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative could I be?

Pregnant?: If the bleeding corresponds to "implantation bleeding, " then a pregnancy test won't be positive for another two to three weeks. Check it again at that time and see.

Not likely: If you got your period 5 days after intercourse, you are almost surely not pregnant. The headache is most likely totally unrelated. Hope this helps!

Only way to...: ...answer your concern about pregnancy is to recommend you perform a home pregnancy test & hope you're pleased with the results (whatever they may be). Regardless, please consider next time the consequences of unprotected intercourse & take appropriate protective steps. Only abstinence is 100% guaranteed to avoid unanticipated motherhood.

My period came three days early was shorter than normal, I had no cramps and my breasts were not sore when normally I have both. What does this mean?

My period came three days early was shorter than normal, I had no cramps and my breasts were not sore when normally I have both. What does this mean?

Nothing: Don, t know your age but in your early years, your period may fluctuate but it will become regular. I, e if you have not had sex. Because if you have, you need to get a pregnancy test done and yes, even though the risk is low, you can still get pregnant even if you use a condom (very good to do this) or other forms of contraception

I had sex about two weeks ago and now my "period" is light, a week early, and short. My periods are usually heavy and last 7 days. What is happening?

Irregluar period: Most likely if you are having a period, even if it is lighter, earlier and shorter, you are not pregnant. This could be due to hormonal fluctuation, stress, or other factors.

If your period was early and shorter then normal this past month would your ovulation day may be different?

If your period was early and shorter then normal this past month would your ovulation day may be different?

Which one?: Your ovulation day on the previous cycle happened most likely 14 days before the 1st day of your period (*but see below) your next ovulation should occur, similarly 14 days before the first day of your next period. Then, it depends on whether this cycle will (or not) be shorter. *also, anovulatory cycles may occur. Check with your gyn to see what was the case. Best wishes.

I had an early and short period. I want to know if my symptoms seem to be implantation or period. I really need help.

I had an early and short period. I want to know if my symptoms seem to be implantation or period. I really need help.

Implantation: Implantation bleeding is not really as common as the internet would have you believe. When it does happen it's usually 6-12 days after ovulation. A pregnancy test 7-10 days after unprotected intercourse is much more helpful. Implantation bleeding occurs exclusively in pregnant women. If your pregnancy test is negative then this is just an irregular period

Do a pregnancy test!: If you are sexually active do a pregnancy test. If it is negative and you are not pregnant, then it could be just normal adjustment of your body after discontinuation of your pills.

Short, light period a week early then brown spotting. What is this?

Short, light period a week early then brown spotting. What is this?

Uncertain: The main reason for light periods is change in hormone levels. Causes for what seems to be a light period can include: thyroid problems, eating disorders, excessive exercise, initial periods for a girl, use of an intrauterine device, oral contraceptives, perimenopause ; implantation bleeding in early pregnancy which rarely occurs.

I had a very short light period that came six days early. Now a week later I'm having slight cramps tinge feeling. What could this mean?

Possible...: This could very well be related to pregnancy, so a pregnancy test should be step #1. If not pregnant then possibilities include but not limited to infections, hormonal imbalances, bad nutrition, stress.If symptoms are persistent follow up with your GYN provider.

Last month 3 day short period this month 6 days early? My periods are always on time every 24/25 days and last 5 days. What could this be?

Last month 3 day short period this month 6 days early? My periods are always on time every 24/25 days and last 5 days. What could this be?

Hormonal fluctuation: The length of the period can change with fluctuations of hormones, which can be caused by various stressors on the body such as excessive physical exercise, climate change, an illness and even by weight gain or loss. If it was very light or just spotting and you are at all concerned that you could be pregnant, then taking a pregnancy test would be reasonable.

Cycles can vary: Menstrual cycles can vary, even if not under stress.That can make "natural family planning" a challenge. If you are sexually acitve and do not wish to become pregnant please use condoms or spermicide.

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems OBGYNs treat. If this is one-time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections and hormonal changes can cause spotting. Exercise, weight loss, and stress can change your pattern. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more
