My last for sure period was around the fourth of february. According to a smart little app on my Iphone my next one was due the 15th of march or so. Being 18, things happen and I ended up having unprotected sex with a close friend of mine on the 9th of march (the day my app said I was likely to ovulate, should have looked at that before). Since then I have been extremely nauseous on an almost daily basis and have had many pregnancy symptoms. I went to the doctor near the end of april for a urine test, it came back negative. Still no period though until recently I started to bleed very heavily. I have miscarried before and felt the same kind of pains for the first two days. pain has stopped but im still bleeding six days later. I\'m very confused as to what this means and was hoping someone could provide me with a logical answer or at least a helpful suggestion please.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you were sexually active during your probable ovulation days, then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. The absent periods, and heavy bleeding after missed periods could be indicative of possibility of a miscarriage. It is difficult to comment without examining you. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for examination to see if cervix is open (open os) indicative of possibility of miscarriage. An ultrasound scan done will help in showing if there is ongoing miscarriage and retained products of conception still inside uterus causing the bleeding to be persistent. Request for a repeat examination, ultrasound scan and serum/blood HCG level estimation to confirm the exact cause for the bleeding. Appropriate treatment measures would be started to help you. All the best.
If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you intend to remain sexually active, consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods/withdrawal bleeding). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact.
