Okay, I wasn't feeling well today, and I'm on my period. A lot of my friends get it bad when their period comes - vomiting, severe cramps, etc. I've experienced the severe cramps, and I've had some nausia. I tried to discuss it wit my mom, she just said it sounds like I'm pregnant. My Question is, how could I be pregnant if I'm on my period and am not sexually active during my period? Help me out, please y'all.
Well if you are sexually active AT ANY TIME of your menstrual cycle without using any type of protection, there is a high risk of pregnancy. However, if you've never been sexually active in any means whatsoever, then there's pretty much no chance. If you have been sexually active, but done it safely, there's still a slight chance, but barely.
However, since you said you are currently having your period, those symptoms sound very normal for a period. Besides, when you are pregnant, I am almost 100% sure you won't get your period. I know you won't, but I've heard stories that some have, but I think I remember reading somewhere on here that it just doesn't happen.
Of course, if you are at all concerned that you may be pregnant, take a pregnancy test. It's the ONLY way to get those worries out of your head!
