Can spotting be considered somewhat like your period?
tina928 posted:
I have major problems with my period. I'm super irregular! At one point I didnt get my period for 3 years. Im 27 years old and Haven't had my period since the end of January. Funny thing though I still get the cramping and the pms symptoms every month. Ive taken pg tests and all are negative. My stomach is getting really swollen and round and i get cramps on my right side. Sometimes I cant even breath from how swollen it gets. It eventually goes down, but anyhow. The last week of July I spotted for 3 days. It was so lightly I did not have to wear a pad. Could that of been my period?
