Early periods and body pains - Online Doctor Chats
Doctor : Hi
User : hi
Doctor : How can I help you?
User : My name is -----, I am a 20 year old female.
I had what I thought to be my period starting January 5th, 2009 and ending January 8th, 2009. I was about nine days early. Normally I have heavy cramps and heavy bleeding and my menstruation lasts for 6-7 days. What I noticed right off was that it wasn't a heavy flow and I had absolutely no cramping. It was heavy enough to need a tampon the first two days, but not the third. I never experienced any cramping with the bleeding. What I have experienced is now slight cramping, horrible headaches, nausea, sensitivity to smells and certain foods, back aches, fatigue and I find I am hungrier much more often. On top of that, my breasts are sore which usually goes away the first day I start my period, but I didn't notice it this time with my period. What I am wondering is if, even though I bled, I could be pregnant? I have scheduled a doctor's appointment but I just want some advice on what this could be.
