Possibly Pregnant?
An_257774 posted:
I'm 16 years old, and I believe that I am pregnant. I told my mom and we will be purchasing a home pregnancy test soon (she still thinks it's a little too early). I am "spotting" right now and have been on and off all day. I have had my period for about 7 years now, and I know when it's coming. I get terrible cramps that cause me to get sick, as well as it being a heavy flow. This time around (still not sure if it's my period or "spotting" during pregnancy), I am only seeing blood when I wipe, not in the urine. Lately, I've been mildly cramping that last about 5-10 minutes. I'm not sure if that's my body trying to start my period but can't cause I'm "pregnant".
So, my questions are: is this a possibilty that I'm pregnant and this is normal spotting? Or, am I starting my period in a diferent way?
I have other symptoms of being pregnant, as well.

You may have not ovulated and no ovulation usually means no period. It's common, especially in teens, and most women will have it happen to them at least once during their reproductive years.
