Probably not: Early pregnancy does not produce any local symptoms...Just missed periods and may be, nausea. Your problem could be from bladder infection(if you have to go to urinate frequently) or digestive probelms...Like constipation.If it persists more than 1-2 weeks, go see your family doctor. ...Read more

Hard to tell...: A doctor can check to see if there is a medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms. Many women have some variation of their mucus discharge, their periods, or a missed period on occasion. Some women feel normal after a few days, but others have bothersome symptoms and follow-up with their doctors. If needed, a pregnancy test is accurate if done correctly after a missed period. ...Read more

If you are a: virgin - then you should not have a pregnancy scare. Sperm needs to be placed in the vagina or at the introitus (opening of the vagina) for pregnancy to occur. Antibiotics can sometimes cause GI symptoms. Take care. ...Read more

I have stomach tightness and had a very light period that lasted for two days, can this mean am pregnant and the pregnancy test is actually positive?

Need to take the: Pregnancy test to find out if negative or positive. The main reason for light periods is a 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. ...Read more

Tightness : Tightness in the stomach is a very vague symptom and can be a sign of many different things, for example gastointestinal issues (gas, viral infection), premenstrual symptom, urinary tract infection, and even a sign of stress/anxiety. If you feel you may be pregnant, the simple answer is to take a pregnancy test. Lastly, if you feel you may have a tumor, then you need to see your doctor for an examination and possibly imaging studies. Good luck. ...Read more
