Hello! Hoping someone has had similar experience and can provide some advice and/or experience.
On day 22 of my cycle, I had a weird experience where I became super nauseated and had a severe case heartburn/acid reflux. I was double over with pain and it lasted on and off for several hours. I was fine the next day.
I got my period day 26 in the afternoon but it was super light, so light that 4 hours later when I went to change my tampon there was barely anything on it. 3 hours after that, before bed there was NOTHING on the 2nd tampon. I did not bleed throughout the night and didn't start bleeding again until late the next afternoon. Then I bled Thursday afternoon through Friday afternoon and it was gone by late Friday afternoon. All week I had been tired which typically happens with PMS, not so much during for me. On Saturday, the day after my period ended I was exhausted and quite hungry even after I was done eating. Sunday morning I woke up with slight cramps and bloating and spotting and I'm still feeling the same today and I'm still spotting a very light brown.
My question is could I be pregnant? I have a couple of friends who have gotten their period the first month they were actually pregnant. I bought a pack of pregnancy tests, should I take one and if so...when since I just "supposedly" got over my period last Friday???
Yes, that's true but you aren't pregnant when you have your period. Your last period is used to calculate how far along you are because the average women ovulates about two weeks after the beginning of her period.
