My period only lasted 2 days, could I be pregnant?
A little background on me: I am 26 years old, healthy, in an exclusive relationship. We do not use condoms and I stopped taking birth control pills in December 2010.
I started my period two days late, which isnt unsual for me, on March 4, 2011. The period seemed normal, was light-medium but what was very unsual was it only lasted two days. By March 6, i was no longer bleeding and then I had some spotting on March 8, only when I wiped. This is very very unsual for me as my periods have always lasted at least 5 days. I am not sure it is relevent but I did have a cold when I got my period. Just your run-of-the-mill cold but thought I would mention it.
I do use a period predictor/ovulation calander app on my phone since I am not on BC . According to my Ovulation calander I was ovulationg February 17-19th (or those where my best 3 days to get pregnant). I had unprotected sex on February 13 and 24th. I have some dull back pain today and I feel "off" and tired. I am also a little nauseas but have not thrown up.
Any courteous input would be much appreciated. I plan on taking a couple tests tomorrow morning, I don't know if it would be too early to take them or not. Thank you!!
