Teens Only Ask a Question Parents Resources


  WELL RIGHT NOW I'M NOT SURE IF I'M PREGNANT BECAUSE I'M ALMOST 2 WEEKS LATE. BUT 2 WEEKS AGO WHEN I WAS SUPPOSED TO START ON MAY 25. I KIND OF DID START BUT IT ONLY LASTED ABOUT 2 OR 3 DAYS. THE FIRST DAY A LOT OF BLOOD CAME OUT THEN THE OTHER DAYS IT WAS REALLY LIGHT. CAN I STILL BE PREGNANT OR IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG CAUSE SOMETIMES I KIND OF GET CRAMPS OR FEEL SHARP PIN POINTS IN MY OVARIES?

Dear Vanessa,

If you engaged in unprotected vaginal intercourse within the past month, then an unplanned pregnancy is possible. However, having an irregular menstruation is also quite normal, especially among teen females.

If you have engaged in unprotected vaginal intercourse in the past month, then we suggest taking a pregnancy test. If you have not engaged in unprotected vaginal intercourse over the last month, then we suggest that you speak to your doctor about going on birth control pills which will make your menstrual cycle very regular - if that is something you would like.
