Could I be pregnant?


Q: I've been having unprotected sex at least once a week for the last few months. Using only the withdrawal method. About 5 weeks ago I wasn't to start my period and I had light cramping and a day of light spotting. Looked it up and convinced it was implantation bleeding. Thought nothing of it when days later I had no other signs of pregnancy. Maybe a little cramping, some nausea nipples tender but only for like 3 days. I was set to start my period on Christmas Day. I'm not very regular but always within a few days. For 8 days everyday I was certain I was starting my period. Would even run to the bathroom expecting blood and nothing. On day 9 of no period I home tested and it was negative. Was gonna test again on day 15 of being late. On day 12 of being late I started bleeding with no warning. No cramps no nothing. Figured I was just late. But something doesn't feel right about this period. Day one was normal bleeding. Morning of day two I woke up (sorry for tmi) but covered in blood. I have never in my life of menstrating bled through a tampon. The blood is very bright red. Today (day 3 of "period") it's very light, tampon is almost uncomfortable. I also realized I've had zero cramps. And I am normally one who is doubled over for days in agony. Could I be pregnant. I haven't tested again because I'm just not sure what's going on with my body. Please give some insight.
