Question: Can anyone help?

Ok I have had irregular periods. My last normal one was back in June. The past few have been very weird. Not exactly a period but more of i guess the discharge at the end of your period cycle. In other words I haven't had any blood in my cycles. Does that happen when you are pregnant? I have taken about five prenancy test and all of them have been negative. I'm not sure what is going on. I have been really stressed lately, I'm wondering if that could be why. Also my friend is 5 mo's pregnant. I found out about 3 or 4 months ago and I'm wondering if that could be it too. Maybe I'm thinking about that and that I could be too and that is causing it to be so weird. I don't know!??!?! I know stress can cause it to become irregular sometimes but for months at a time I'm not sure. Or could I be bleeding internally? Does anyone know about this??? please help!!!!

User avatar Hi!

With a negative pregnancy test one can reasonably rule out pregnancy, and multiplying it by 5 won't make you pregnant! Irregular cycles occur quite frequently and oral contraceptives may be used to regularize such cycles. Menstrual bleeding internally is unheard of except in hypothesis. So, you can rule that out too. You may consult your obgyn to discuss regarding your cycles.
