had late period for 3 days and on the 4th day (as of today) experiencing bleeding not as heavy as my normal period but heavier than spotting (8am to 2pm) and it decreases in amount as time goes.

am i pregnant?

never had a missed period ever though my cycle changes every month. had a period tracker on my phone and it is always accurate as it is. first time to experience everything. pls. help!

Doctor

A:   Thank you for your query.
It is advisable that you opt for a home pregnancy test or a blood test for βhCG to know if you are pregnant or not. Just based on the symptoms it would be difficult to conclude on the pregnancy status. Premenstrual symptoms & pregnancy symptoms often overlap. Therefore only the pregnancy test can help conclude whether you are pregnant or not.
Hope that answers your query. Have a good day.
