A while ago I posted a new discussion about me possibly being pregnant and I asked for advice to see what others thought about my situation. Now, I am a little curious with whats going on now and could use some feedback. I did, however, took my last dollar tree pregnancy test on September 21st. It came out negative and the same day I started bleeding so figured it was my period. I normally get extremely bad cramps the 1st day and usually the day before,my lower back will hurt, I will get really tired and weak but none of those happened. It lasted 3-5 days and was average on how heavy the flow was. Then October 10th I started bleeding again.. which around this time is about 2 weeks after I was bleeding on Sept 21st. Again, I had no cramps, my back was a little sore but nothing extreme.. I have been really tired.. and I am talking about sleeping 8 or more hours at night and still wanting more sleep lol.. and I am always hungry. Is this normal? Can you always have cramps and all these symptoms for you period and then all of a sudden have none? I seriously doubt I am pregnant but I guess anything is possible. I just really want to know if this is normal, or if anyone has had this happened to them.. I would get it checked out but like the last discussion, I have no money to see a doctor which is why I come on here for feedback!!

I'm not sure of how much does the pregnancy test kit cost in your location but i think that's the best thing to do right now. If going to a doctor will cost you that much i think taking the pregnancy test kit again will not do much. At least by this way you can really determine if you're pregnant or not, some says you need to check it twice 'coz sometimes pregnancy test also fails. I remember my GF having this problem as well so if you take the pregnancy test then turned out to be negative again try to wait for a few days or a week if bleeding started again then there's no other option but to go to a doctor. It doesn't matter if this will cost you much as long as you'll be able to determine the cause and remedy rather than disregard and be too late.

Did your GF end up being pregnant? I think I will wait for a bit to see if my cycle comes regular. I am sure its just out of whack or something.

To be safe, you can buy a pregnancy kit to make sure that you are not pregnant. If the result shows negative then that is just some hormonal imbalance that you are experiencing. Try to avoid stress because that's the common reason. If this shows a recurring trend in the coming months, I suggest find a way to get some money so you can have yourself checked by a doctor.

Honestly, I have never had this happen to me exactly like you have. But in the past I have had my periods come early and late. When I asked the doctor about it, he said that stress can hughly affect your cycle. As I am no doctor, I can't really say what it could be. Have you tried asking your question on a medical site. I can't remember the name of it, but I know there are websites where you can post medical questions and get answers from people in the medical field. So you might want to look into that. Where do you live? I live in the US and there are local health departments that I can go to where they will work out payment plans or do a evaluation on my income to see if I am able to pay at all. Good luck and I hope you are able to find the answers that you need.

Im in the US too.. I don't know what it could be either. I guess it could be stress related but its just weird because Ive been really stressed out before and this never happened before. I am sure everything is okay I just wanted to see if anyone has had something like this happen to them. Thank you for your feedback!!

This has never happened for me, but I know of 2 people who have. They were in a stressful stage and a week after their period, it started again. I hope you can somehow find a free clinic or something so you can check what's going on. Or maybe take another test?
