Period came late but was short. Any ideas?

I was 2 weeks late for my period when it finally came. It hurt a lot more than usual and it only lasted 3 days. Never enough to fill a tampon but it was red. Ive been having hot flashes which is very unusual for me and today I was so nauseous but it was only for about 30 mins or so. Food just doesnt sound good at all. Is there any possibility I could be pregnant. I think its unlikely but Im not 100% sure. I also took pregnancy test the day before the "period" started and it was negative. I would love some feedback :D

No problem, thanks for commenting. I thought I was pregnant when it didnt come and I was disappointed when it did. Its weird that it has stopped though. Me and my husband tried for a year and I found out that I had Stage 4 endometriosis last year and had to do injections once a month for 6 months. It took two months to get a period (august 2011) but they have been 28 days like clock work ever since. Its just weird and honestly ive been afraid that I cant have kids because we have been trying so long. Anyone else feel free to share your experience :)

Hey guys, I posted this last month and thought I would update everyone. My period came two weeks late last month, as I posted, and then was short when it did come. It has been 5 weeks since that bleeding has stopped and I have not had another period. The confusion continues. I dont feel very different. I have slight hot flashes occasionally and i had cramps and bloating over this past weekend which I thought meant my period was coming but it was a no show. I took a couple tests about three weeks ago and were still negative. Im thinking I may need another but Im worried I might just get my hopes up. I love hearing your feedback, thank you ladies and Good Luck to all!

Hi All
I'm 2 weeks late, I started to bleed on Sunday and it stopped yeaterday so it lasted for a day! I usually have really heavy periods and take a day or to they normally regular. It's coincidental that I'm trying for a baby. I've taken 3 tests within the 2 weeks of being late and all come back negative! Has anyone else experienced the same? Could I be pregnant?

I had my last period on the 10/10/12 then on the 19/11/12 I had some light bleeding when I wiped which then stopped for 3 days then appeared throughout the day (not all day) again when I was wiping. I also had a brown spotting on the 24//11/12 now again nothing, taken a pregnancy test this morning negative again, I have a appointment for blood test on the 6/12/12 but very confused? Anyone have any ideas on this? Me and my fiancé have been trying for over a year to get pregnant, we had tests and everything seems to be working beautifully for us both so why are we finding this so hard? We had our hopes set on this month as period was 2 weeks late?

I'm CURRENTLY having the same problem. I have a period tracker app & I usually start a day or 2 before it says so. This month I was 2 wks late after taking 4 home test, 1 at the Dr's & a blood test at a walk-in clinic....all NEGATIVE. My period lasts 4 days, this month it lasted 2 days & today (which would have been day 3) it's not enough to use a tampon. I hardly ever cramp since I had kids (my oldest is 7) but from time to time I will... this month I cramped like crazy & my pubic bone hurt. I'm thinking about taking another test.

Hey pchrzan86,
Usually cramping isn't good...It could mean a miscarriage. I would definitely get checked out at your obgyn especially since your period is so irregular.  I hope you get everything figured out.

Hey guys so I came on 5 days late this month and I'm usually on for 7 days but only was on for 4 days and compared to how I usually am it was a lighter red then usual. I was just wondering had anybody gone through a similar situation and what the outcome was - pregnant or not?? Thanks B.

Could I be pg?
