My period was late and shortened. Could I be pregnant?
An_247950 posted:
I had sex with my boyfriend on Sept. 9 and my period was expected on Sept. 12th but it was non existent until Sept. 15th and then it was very heavy. Last ONLY three days when it should have been 7 days total. It was heavy for about 1.5 days of the three then slowly vanished. I took an at home test on the 12th because my period had not come- The test was negative. My period for the month of August was on the 12th and lasted until the 17th. The normal time frame for me. [br>[br>I do not know what would have made my period shorter and late. Is there anyone who would have a possible guess?
