Hi, I am new to this forum however after reading the topics and answers here, I feel maybe I can find the answers to my problems as well.
Have been trying to conceive and had sex with my husband around the time I ovulated between 31st july and 3rd august. My periods came one week early on 13th august and lasted only for 2 days. So Im thinking maybe im not pregnant, however I have a bloated stomach with slight shooting pain sometimes. It lasts for only a few secs and then its ok.all preg tests are negative...could I still be pregnant. Also have nausea during the day, especially after eating.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The shorter and lighter period that you had after 7-10 days of having intercourse could have been suggestive of possibility of implantation bleeding. Your symptoms also could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Urine pregnancy tests usually start showing positive results after about 20 days post-conception that roughly corresponds to about a week after your missed periods. Wait and watch for your actual periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
If pregnancy gets ruled out, go ahead with getting complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to identify any other underlying abnormality that might hinder pregnancy chances. Appropriate treatment measures would be suggested to help you get pregnant (based on examination and investigation results). All the best.
Take care.

Hi,

Good day... Please help me.. Weird symptoms of pregnancy is hitting me.

I made love with my boyfriend on 30th of Jan till 2nd of Jan and I am expecting my period on 8th of Feb. I took Postinor 2 on Feb 1 around 2-3PM. My period came 2 days late(Feb 10) and shorter than usual.

This is the first time i get period for only 2 days, I usually have it for 4-5 days.

Here is what i feel:
From day 1 of making out, i felt slight cramps in my uterus. I also feel like wanting to vomit all the time, something like all smells irritate my stomach. Once,(week after) i felt a pulsating sensation in my uterus, and that feeling is the weirdest (first time). The tired feeling is driving me crazy, like i cannot hit the bed. Plus I am constipated and bloated even though i had that 2 days period already. Lower back pain made me feel so uncomfortable. It even made me cry for the first time.

Have noticed excessive saliva which made me feel like eww too...

Can anyone enlighten me what can this be?
These feelings I have, are these the side effect of Postinor 2?
Thanks

Thanks for detailed information. Have scheduled an appointment with my gynaecologist, however in the meantime, some of the symptoms have aggrevated which worries me, especially. Along with the lower abdominal bloating, now i have pelvic region swelling as well. There is no pain or discomfort in urinating, however just general discomfort. Also I feel dizzy all the time..
Please advise...

Hi, ive been trying to be pregnant as well.although i got my periods a couple of days late but the flow was almost as good as nothing after the third day. My stomach is bloated and i feel very uncomfortable especially when i lie down. It feels as if my stomach is stretching and sometimes have short pains/cramps. And i cant sleep on my tummy or back which i ussually do.have to put a pillow beside so that my tummy is not pressed. I also used to feel nausea but very slight before my periods. And i also strangely dont like the taste of any food these days.
Could i by any chance be pregnant?! I got my hopes down once i got my periods. And i had also done a home test 1 day after my expected menstrual date, and it showed negative.
It would be great if anyone could help me with some informations. Thanks

This month has been the first that my husband and I are trying to conceive (the first week of November). Before my period, I've experienced breast and lower abdomen tingling/tugging.
I had my period over the weekend (Nov.22nd). It was really light the first day, then regular on days 2 and 3, then lighter on the 4th day. The night before my period, I woke up in the middle of the night feeling extremely nauseous (no vomiting), I've never felt that way during pms or any other time.
It's been about 3-4 days after my period and am still feeling bloated, just a tad nauseous, a bit tired and a just very little tingling sensation in breast and lower abdomen. I took a home pregnancy test & it was negative.
A woman's body teases her, I guess.

Hi everyone,
We are trying for a baby, my period is always on time, 25 days, last around 4-5 days, medium to heavy flow. We have unprotected sex all the time, atleast 4-5 times a week. I had my period now this month, again on time (25thday) and it only lasted 2 days? light to medium flow? I feel sore and cramping and bloated? Can implantation bleeding be the same day your period is suppose to start? coincidence???

Tantan, it would help to know if the period Dec 20th was on schedule and also if you had sexual contact earlier in the month. Is it possible that the 20th was implantation spotting? Your tests may have been too early - wait a week and try again.

You don't mention unusual fatigue with more peeing or lotion discharge, appetite, smell and breast changes. Maybe you have an ovarian cyst or gland problem which would have to be checked by a doctor.

Dear Tantan87, Welcome to e health forum.

The possible symptoms that are common in pregnancy include - Missed periods, Breast tenderness, Nausea in the early morning, Vaginal discharge from pinkish white to brownish, Spotting, Fatigue and Increased urge to urinate.

Diagnosis of pregnancy cannot be done just based on the signs and symptoms within a few days of conception.

The best and easy way to confirm if you are pregnant would be to do a urine pregnancy test at home.

Home pregnancy urine tests are very sensitive and are around 97% accurate when done correctly. Such tests can be done at least 1 day after you have missed your monthly period (which otherwise where normally regular). If it is negative, a repeat test after 7 days of missing the period, would definitely be confirmatory.

If your PT is negative, and you still have abnormal symptoms or missed periods, then it could be due to other medical issues and you need to consult your doctor and seek a proper medical opinion.

I hope this helps.

hi,
I am in state of confusion. I was 14 days late and took two pregnancy tests at home that were positive. Two days after the test I started spotting which turned into periods like flow with clots. Day1 was very light, following 2 days were heavy and 4th very light again. Now, my doubt is that I am still feeling nauseated, bloated, headaches, sensitive to smell etc (pregnancy symptoms)Am I still pregnant or its over Sad ?

n, it could go either way. Run a couple more pregnancy tests on first morning pee at one week intervals and see if the positives are getting fainter.
