Thanks for writing to us.

Pregnancy is not a case here as your pregnancy test is negative. having a lesser than normal bleeding might be due to anemia or mild hormonal imbalances.Having an overdue period now also can be due to hormonal disturbances. Consulting your gynecologist will help in proper investigations and management.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Hi reading what u have posted it could very likely be that u are pregnant. the heartburn doesnt really kick in til u are a good couple of months preg as that is the uterus pressing on ur stomache causing heartburn. There can be other tell tale signs of pregnacy; nausea,tender breasts,tiredness,nipples will appear darker and u may need to wee more often. may i ask when u did ur test? if it was early on then it may have been a false negative & i would suggest doing another test or going to ur doctor to confirm whether or not u are preg. However if its confirmed u are not & ur periods are still irregular and concerning u I would definately talk to ur doc to find the reason for this. I hope this helpful x
