Period now cramping

I had my period 2 days early it started out really heavy then died out. After it stopped I started having bad lower back pain and cramping plus breast tenderness and frequent urination. Could I still possibly be pregnant?

Hi and thanks for using the forum.

It does not sound like you are, but if you are worried that you could be, there is no harm in taking a pregnancy test.  Most likely, this is just an "off" heavy period, but if you continue to have bleeding or if your next period is also much heavier than normal for you, you should get checked out by your ob/gyn just to be sure that there is not anything else going on.  good luck.
