Hello guys,

I'm just wondering if decidual bleeding is accompanied by cramps as severe as dysmenorrhea and bleeding that could last for up to 4-5 days? I've been looking around the net to find an answer but to no avail. Thanks.

Has your girlfriend still not taken a pregnancy test?

If not, that really needs to be the first step if and when someone is concerned they may be pregnant or not. Trying to figure that out otherwise like this just is not sound. Additionally, if and when someone has earnestly been at risk of pregnancy, putting off testing is very strongly not advised.

no she still hasnt taken a test yet. I suggested it before to her during the time when we were both freaking about her period being late but she refused as she is too afraid to take it for some reason. After she got her period i stopped bothering her about pregnancy and kept it to myself by looking for symptoms and stuff without her knowing. I've been like this for like 3 months now. her 3 periods were reassuring but can't still shake the feeling. If she gets her period this month, which is 5 days from now, I will leave these thoughts behind.

Trying to figure out what's going on with someone else's body, based on symptoms that could be caused by any number of things, really isn't going to give you any useful information. If your girlfriend is still concerned, then she needs to take a pregnancy test: that's all there is to it. And, if she is no longer worried, and chooses not to test, then that is also up to her: the only thing you can do now is figure out how to deal with your anxiety. One option is to see a mental healthcare provider.
