Confused!

I had protected sex 10 weeks ago, and was on the contraceptive Yaz at the time. I missed my period for that month, and was terrified. The next month, I got a period but it was shorter than usual but much heavier. This month, I also got a shorter, heavier period. Over the past 10 weeks, I have taken 19 pregnancy tests, ALL negative. I have no nausea (unless I haven't eaten, but that's normal for anyone), no tenderness of my breasts, no darkening of my areolas, minor back pain (but i slump over all the time, so that's probably causing that), no cravings, i've actually LOST weight...but I have a pudge where a baby bump would be. I haven't thrown up once or gotten sick at the smell of anything. I haven't been particularly moody. And I sleep just as much as usual, if not less. I've been told it is impossible to have 19 negatives, heavy periods, no symptoms, but still be pregnant. But I'm scared.

It would be highly unlikely that you are pregnant, so I would try not to stress about it. Birth control can change our cycles, length and duration, so that is probably what is happening to you. Try to relax, I am pretty sure you're not pregnant, especially after that many negatives and you are still getting your period. :)

How do I know that these are normal periods, as opposed to so-called "periods" during pregnancy?
