Question: Period or Pregnancy symptoms?

 kinsey - Tue Mar 15, 2005 5:28 pm

I am a little bit worried as of now. In mid-February, the 19th to be exact, I had sex with my boyfriend. I had just ended my period, but I continued to have small amounts of blood in my discharge for about two days after sex. My next period should have been yesterday (March 14). It is March 15 and I still haven't started. I don't know my cycle well enough to know the exact date that i should start, but the 14th would be 28 days after I ended my period. I can usually sense when my period is about to occur, but this time it feels different. It is possible that I am just a nervous wreck, but it would be nice to have some answers. I have had bloating, fatige, cramping in my breasts and pelvic area, but I have researched and seen that these are also symptoms of pregnancy. I am scared and my mom is suspicious, for she asks me every day now if I have "started". Could someone help me please? I don't know what to do.

User avatar Did you start yet? If you haven't started by now maybe you should get an over-the-counter pregnancy test or make an appointment with your Physician. If you can talk to your Mother about your fears you should, she may be able to offer you wisdom and support that you need right now. Mom's understand more than they're given credit for :lol:
