    Weird Symptoms?!
    An_250698 posted:
    I am not sure if this is just a change in cycle, or if I am pregnant, or what this may be. I am 21 years old and my last period started January 31 and lasted until February 6th. On the 20th of February I began spotting and this lasted until the 24th. My next period was due March 4th and still has not shown. My periods are usually really regular. I have began to break out in acne in places I NEVER have before. I took a pregnancy test about a week and a half ago and it was negative. I have also been nauseous and very tired all of the time. I have also been having abdominal discomfort, not pain, just uncomfortable at night. I have been having a hard time getting to sleep as well. If you have any insight please let me know what you think!
    Thank you.

    You have not indicated if you have had unprotected intercourse or if you are on birth control. What about these two things?

    If you took a pregnancy test a week and a half ago, that was over a week before your period was due. That's too soon. Since your period is late, take a test.

    I am not on birth control, I do have unprotected sex. I took a pregnancy test again this morning, and it is still negative...
