well, here's the story. first ill tell you that, i take birth control but i do forget the pills and sometimes take them the next day when i remember, i know its a very bad habit. on december 20th i had sex. we used a condom but he's/we're not that experienced and even an hour later i still felt kinda like he came inside me. i know he put the condom on but...im not so sure it worked. i think when he put it on he either didnt check the expiration date, didn't leave room at the end for his "stuff", or it just broke. he did seem kind of nervous after sex when he was taking the condom off and in a convo about parents and a bunch of stuff the day after when we were hanging out i said "my moms happy if im not pregnant" and he was like "well, you could be pregnant.." and at the time i ignored it. the next day i asked him about it but he said he was joking but i just have a weird feeling from how he said it when we were hanging out. anyways...the period i had before sex was about november 30th..i was due for my period december 26th-28th but i got it the 23rd and if i remember right it was only a couple days and it was different and lighter. probably a couple weeks later after we did it i started having a lot of fatigue..and its only getting worse, and im not really depressed. for the past week or two ive been having to pee more often even drinking the same amount of fluids as before. it was a couple times during school when before i almost never went pee during school..now im going 2-4 times a day...i go and by the next class(about 45-60 minutes after i pee) i have to pee again with a decently full bladder. my breasts have been really sore/tender for about a week, im getting headaches and very dizzy/lightheaded every single day for the same..about a week. my appetite has decreased a lot. all of a suddon some of my favorite meals make me want to vomit and nothing tastes quite right. i have a really gross taste in my mouth. my back hurts but that is really the only thing i ever have pain with from pms. im so moody and find myself in my room 90% of the time while im home now....and it wasn't like that a couple weeks ago. my abdomen feels so weird i don't know how to explain it just i know something is different. i'm having other symptoms but i can't think of everything off the top of my head...its easier if people ask if im having certain things. people keep telling me its probably just pms but my pms is never bad..ive never had a very painful period or many pms symptoms. i was having a weird small pain in my lower abdomen now its maybe 3 inches and to the right of my bellybutton.. around my pelvis but nothing ive EVER had before. this pain just started today. it's not really a bad pain but its noticeable and uncomfortable. i usually am fine wearing jeans during my period or right before when i get A LITTLE bloated but i can't now..to uncomfortable. im bloated..i usually only get a tiny bloated with my pd. anyways, i dont want to make this way long, im trying to get to the point but still give enough info. i was due for my period yesterday and i started spotting. it's pink and brown..not really red. and its a little..i only had to wear a pantyliner all night and until about 10am today. usually i start getting heavier and need a pad but not until this afternoon. today i am having light bleeding but still mostly pink and brown and very thin...i dont remember ever having a period quite like this. my boobs very rarely get sore with pms but they are very and they are changing a tiny bit and i think they are outgrowing this bra. ive been told not to worry if i got my period 2 days after we had sex but ive read and even been told by people that they had sex right before their period, got it, and were still pregnant..and kept getting their period or at least 1 or 2 light ones. im breaking out a lot more the past 2-3 weeks. i have a small break out every once in a while but lately it's more than usual. i read on a website that sometimes you can have weird ovulation pattern or ovulate at weird times almost randomly..that not everyone ovulates in the middle of their cycle. im only 16 and so is he, we aren't dating just good friends. i dont want to tell him unless i have to because i dont know how he will react at all and im afraid if im not we wont even be friends anymore..and his moms..an interesting person..so i dont think shed even allow us to be friends and if she did probably only if im pregnant, more than likely not if i found out im not and yeah. so as much as i need his support right now i cant tell him..and i dont want to tell my mom if i dont have to..i havent even admitted to having sex yet even though she has her suspicions. so any advice would really help. i know so many people will say im not pregnant but it was less than a week ago that i was laying down and for some reason everything rushed to the front of my mind and added itself together and i knew i didnt feel right already so even though i may be wrong or paranoid..i know my body feels different than ever before. people help me out. i dont know what to do, i need a pregnancy test i know and another one of my friends said he would buy me a pregnancy test but i dont want him to spend his money if people dont think its a good possibility. and i dont want to wait until i go to my obgyn for a birth control checkup and her somehow be able to tell and mention it to my me infront of my mom... what do you think about all of this?
to sum it up...heres a couple of my many questions above...incase some aren't obvious questions above.
1. is anyone else sure that can happen with your period even if your pregnant or right after sex?
2. do you think im pregnant?
3. is there any other signs i should watch for?
4. how possible do you think it is that i was ovulating/ovulate close to right before my period?
If you were to ovulate two days before your period, you would have an extremely difficult time getting pregnant. You also can't have your period while you're pregnant. If you were to have a period while pregnant, you would miscarry as menstruation causes your lining to shed. Insufficient lining=no implantation.
You need to take a home pregnancy test and go from there. No one can accurately guess whether or not you're pregnant because pregnancy symptoms mimic all kinds of other symptoms. To me it sounds like you may have a urinary tract infection and/or a vaginal infection because of the discharge. Infections can cause your cycle to be thrown off. But really, we all have off cycles every once in a while.
I strongly suggest getting on a different birth control like the nuva ring or patch where you don't have to remember to take it every day.
Thanks. Yeah I get a lot of UTI's so I don't think its that but maybe. Ill get a test. I know its unlikely but I'm a very unlucky person haha.thank you for thr advice though...no one else really is helping except a couple people.
If I were you I would definitely get a home pregnancy test and see what that says. I had bleeding with both of my pregnancies which leads some people to believe that they are having a period. It is usually very light and not a bright red like you were describing. So there is a chance that you could be pregnant. However if your not pregnant you should probably go talk to your dr and get a different form of birth control. You don't want to be a mom at 16 finish school and enjoy being young :) let us know what you find out
Yeah I definatly want to wait to have babies. My friend said don't test yet and i dint have money but now I've been on my "period" since Monday and it hasn't been enough this entire week all together to fill 1 pad. Its more discharge type stuff with blood spots that are like u said not really red mostly pinkish. I'm getting headaches, very dizzy and lightheaded, and I'm getting a lot of nausea. I'm at my brothers this week for february vacation and I'm always peeing he's like "dang...what are you pregnant?" So I'm definatly going tk get a test. I'm debating talking to my sister-in-law to see if she can help. I know she was having sex at my age so i dont think shed say anything to my brother. Sorry I havent been on and I'm replying late, I've been busy
You should talk to your sister in law if you feel that you can confide in her and that she won't tell your brother. Maybe she could help you go to a clinic or get you a pregnant test. If your period is not normal then that would be a reason to suspect pregnancy also your saying that your nauseous. If you are pregnant then you need to fin out sooner rather than later. Of you plan to keep the baby then you need to get prenatal care for you and your baby.
