    Okay I'm 17 years old and I've been with my boyfriend for 2 years and he is 22, I'm not on birth control and my periods are usually messed up but my period in January really wasn't a period I bled for like one day and it was very light, I really didn't get to worried and now I have like a brownish/ pink spotting when I wipe occasionally this has only happened 2 times in the past 2 days but I've been having mild cramping and a lower back ache as well and I have been urinating a lot more frequently than usual ...opinions please ???

    If you've been having unprotected sex, pregnancy is definitely a possibility. The only way to know is to take a test.

    And yes, mild cramping and frequent urination are both symptoms of pregnancy.

    Could the spotting be implantation bleeding ? I don't wanna take a test right now because I don't want to freak my boyfriend out but if I miss my period that's suppose to be coming I'm gonna test.

    You should definitely take a test.
    It sounds like implantation bleeding to me.

    Don't worry about freaking out your boyfriend - if he's 22 than he's old enoug to deal with it.

    You should talk to your boyfriend so you can take the test together and have some support.

    Good luck!
