Hello everyone! I am back yet again
I've posted on here before about a few topics I was definitely not clear about and I'm glad this website gave me some clarity! Anyways, this is kinda gonna be a super duper long question because I haven't been here in so long that I just wanna get it all out So, basically in March I kinda cheated on my boyfriend which really just made me disappointed in myself. I had "dry sex" with my ex and I did perform oral. I obviously regret it so so much and ugh, it was just horrible guys! I'm not too sure, but I THINK I might have been on my period or finishing it because I remember that I didn't wanna have sex with him for some reason and I think that might have been it! Although we didn't have sex, his bare penis did rub up on my sweats or jeans, whatever I was wearing that day. I don't think he ejaculated either because when I did perform oral, he wanted to ejaculate and I said no and he said he hadn't done so in a long time. (TMI, sorry!) SO, I got my period in April I'm sure and all these months leading up to this very day! These past two months, I've gotten it on the 16th-ish. And it'll start off kinda heavy and dark and just... period like and then it won't be as bad by the 3rd ish day? I don't even remember if I had blood clots this past period and i heard thats a sign of no pregnancy! Why is pregnancy a thought??... well I saw a show yesterday called "I didn't know I was pregnant." and this girl was soooo skinny and didn't have ANY symptoms or anything and then she turned out to be 7 months pregnant when going to the doctors and she would get her period every month and she had no idea. And it got me thinking, what if I'm pregnant this whole time? (Is that show even real? haha!) So, how common is it for girls to not know they're pregnant? And can you really get a period every month and still be pregnant? Do blood clots determine no pregnancy? Why is my period not the way it used to be a while ago.. or am I just looking too deep into it? And lastly, if I've been getting a "period" for these months after March, should pregnancy even BE a question? THANK YOU TO WHOEVER IS READING AND RESPONDING TO THIS! You guys are the best!

I recommend that you stay WELL AWAY from "I didn't know I was pregnant"! That show is sure to make even the most chilled-out about pregnancy start to wonder! Honestly, people who go for a long period of time without realising they're pregnant have something going on -- they often have a mental illness or are deeply depressed, or abuse substances (alcoholics, drug users), or disassociate from their bodies for other reasons, so they do not notice changes to their bodies that most other people WILL notice. So being pregnant for months without realising it? Is not something you have to worry about if you pay any attention at all to your body and the way it works.
And no, there is just no way that you can get a period and still be pregnant. In some instances, there can be bleeding during pregnancy but it is not a period and will not usually resemble a period -- if bleeding is as heavy as a period, lasts about as long as a period, comes about when your period is due, then you can be sure that it's your period. I saw that in your previous threads you've been linked to our info on pregnancy scares. Perhaps now is a good time to re-read Chicken Soup for the Pregnancy Symptom Freakout's Soul

I am so late on this response! But I actually got my period on Friday and for some reason I feel like it's not the same anymore. I have a 29 day cycle so although it usually comes on the 17th it came on the 14th but I checked the calendar and I'm not early at all I suppose.
I usually clot when I have my period but this time, I got tiny tiny blood clots instead. I haven't had sex in over a year except dry sex but that doesn't count There's NO way I could be pregnant over dry sex that happened 3 months ago right? And are the blood clots actually called blood clots?

There shouldn't be any pregnancy possibility over that.
And yes, blood clots are commonly called blood clots.

Just to be clear, the clotting we experience in menstrual blood is usually little bits of tissue from the uterine lining, not blood clots like people get in their circulatory system (veins and arteries).
