Unusual Period and Bleeding

If anyone has any ideas here I would appreciate it. I know seeing a doctor is the best solution but it's difficult to do right now.

I've never had regular periods, sometimes I miss entire months. So last month my period was unusually light and sporadic for a week. It's never done that. It started on the 25th of January (about 2 weeks ago). Now last night I noticed I was bleeding lightly again. This morning and last night I felt light-headed and this morning my chest felt funny, I think it's eased up.

I should mention that I've had a history of ovarian cysts. One when I was 13 which was removed via emergency open surgery, it twisted one ovary and was sudden and painful. Another in 2008 which was optionally removed by keyhole surgery. My surgeon basically informed me that the ovary twisted when I was 13 seems dead but that the other is fine (once they managed to find it.)

Anyway. Alright, I'm an idiot for this, I know. My boyfriend visited me in late November and we fooled around, but didn't have intercourse. I have taken tests to be on the safe side because of the things we did do, one just before Christmas and another about 2 weeks ago. Both negative.

Those tests are a sure thing, right? It's just that the timing is scary. That'll teach me for being irresponsible.

Re: Unusual Period and Bleeding

Hi I have read that sometimes a woman's fear of being pregnant may cause a delay. If I were a person I would just be thankful it was light and not running down a leg like some woman worry about. Endometriosis and/ or cysts can often cause irregularities but unless a person takes care of their health the right way that might not change. In my opinion most of the medicines out there can cause more problems than are supposedly solved. Have a nice day!

Re: Unusual Period and Bleeding

Tests, if instructions are not followed, can give wrong results. and yes you can be pregnant and still bleed.
However, I doubt that you are pregnant and should consider the good advice SJB has given.
