Question
im 26 yrsold. my period on average comes about every 30 to 34 days. I have been recording my periods every month on an app (mycycles) for over a year because I have had what I thought were irregular periods. (come to find out its bcuz my cycle is longer then the avg 28 days.) so in june I had a weird period that last about 10 days. it started out normal then the last 3 or 4 days I was just spotting or bleeding lighty. in july around the time my sisters period came (she has hers then mine follows when hers is close to done) I had my usual period symptoms but no period. then my symptoms kind of disappeared. I get light cramping, no boob pain (my boobs get sore before my period and sometimes they don't), slight nausea. I wont throw up but I kind of spit up sometimes. its been about a week since I was supposed to get it. I took a prego test and it came up negative. does this sound like a pregnancy or hormonal imbalance? should I wait and take another test? oh and the last time I missed a period was in april of 2012. but the previous and following month my period was normal.

Answer
Hi Francesca, I can't really tell you over the internet if you could be pregnant. You can always go to a pregnancy resource center and get a free test there. Go to http://www.optionline.org and see if there is a center near you. Do you want to be pregnant or will it be a problem? Please write me at Carieichel@aol.com so we can talk more.

Good luck.
