Hi and thanks for using the forum.

I am a little unclear as to what your question is so please respond back if I do not answer you in full.  IF  you are concerned that you may be pregnant, then you can always take a home pregnancy test.  These are very accurate and are easy to do.  Since you have had a period each month (even though it is irregular) it does not sound like you are pregnant, but it is always a good idea to check just to be sure.  I am  not sure what you are taking medication for (the ephedrine), but if you are having negative affects from it, you may see if you can switch to something else.  The cramping and breast tenderness can be symptoms of your period, and usually some ibuprofen will work for that.  IF your symptoms are really bothersome to you, and if your irregular period are not the "norm" for you, then you may want to see your GYN for an exam to make sure that everything is OK. I hope this information helps.  Good luck.
