Could I be Pregnant?!/17 might be pregnant...


I expected my period the 15th, I didn't get it until the 18th, and it only lasted 2 days. However, I had a day of bleeding days before on the 13th that seemed odd. I took a pregnancy test on the 23rd and it was negative. But now, I'm having severe backaches and headaches, and I just feel really off and bloated. I feel like I bled too much for it to be implantation bleeding, but normally I have heavy periods and this wasn't. What do you think? What should I do?

Hi Josie, so are you saying that you could be pregnant, because you have had sexual intercourse? It does sound like you have symptoms of pregnancy but I can't tell you over the internet or by email. You will have to go to a pregnancy resource center and get a free test. You can find a center at or and click on the worldwide directory. Please let me know what happens.
You can email me at
