  • i would say probably no...i would wait and see how next month goes...usually women dont have there period when they are pregnant but some can be a cause of stress if you have been stressed alot lately...but if you are worried about it you could always go to a dollar general store if you have one in your area and get a test for a dollar...they work just as good and thats what i used for all 3 of my pregnancies....that way u dont have to spend alot on a test....good luck hun! shoot me and e-mail if you have anymore questions!

  • The mind is a powerful tool. It's very easy to convince ones self that you're pregnant when in reality you're not. However, if you've had sex then there's every possibility you could be pregnant and just randomly bleeding, There's no rule on when you can and can't test, so if it'll make you feel better then test. If it comes up negative I'd wait another month and if you're still concerned re-test. I personally wouldn't spend a lot of money right away on multiple tests. GL
