I took a pregnancy test before the first period started but it said negative but i donno if it was too early or something

Second today Iwent to the bathroom and came acrossed a sour milked smell[i had something similar before witha white creamy discharge] but this time its a brown discharge and I have no idea on what that is..


ANd just incase this helps i have been sexually active with my boyfriend lately everyday for the past two weeks from March 7th-23rd and before that we had sex in feburary..like 2 weeks before march...

Well I can't view your picture because your photos are private and I don't have your user name and password. But I will say that any time you have sex you risk getting pregnant.

I'm having a little bit of a hard time sorting out your information here (so you will pardon if my advice is a little obscure as all), but if you are missing your period, you should take a pregnancy test. That is a rule of thumb here. Having a period, no matter how short it is, is still a period. Different things can alter periods, so it's not really a set in stone thing, even for regular people unfortunately. Oh what a wonderful thing it is to be female!

There is a possibility that the period could have been implantation bleeding, or you could be one of those rare cases that has a period while pregnant.

How are you feeling overall? Bloating can occur from a number or reasons, including PMS. Pregnancy can cause bloating too, not from the fetus or it's size, but from your bowels.

I think the best thing to do is to take a test. If it comes out negative or you don't feel well, you should probably go to a doctor. If it's positive, then congrats and still see a doctor.

Hmm, this does look more like your stomach than your bowels unless you actually are farther a long in a pregnancy, in which case if might be that you would be "showing a little more". Is it something that just happened or something you just noticed or has it been getting worse (bigger over time) and is there any pain associated with it? Just think of where exactly it hurts when you have period cramping and then you will be able to better tell if what you have would be from a pregnancy.

The baby starts to grow from your pelvic bone upwards, so usually there would be somewhat of what you would see in your picture, but more below your bellybutton, but everyone's different and carries a baby differently too. The bowel distension doesn't really look like that.

If what I see in the picture is part of pregnancy, I'm thinking that you would be much father along than a months, so you could actually take a test now based on that. I'm sorry I can't tell you more in that respect.

If it isn't pregnancy, then maybe you should see a doctor. Unless you have quite a bit of bloating from PMS, that doesn't look like something that's comfortable if your abs are as nice looking as I think they are without the bloating.

BTW, I was wondering if you were from England, just curious, doesn't have anything to do with this lol. I used to have this friend in England and I haven't heard from him in forever, but his name was Grant, and we all called him Vamp since he loved Vampires and his girlfriend's name was Leigh lol. Could be just wierd coincidence.

I hope this helps you out somewhat. Keep us updated and let me know if I can help you out anymore with this....I'm doing the best I can.

Eh, thats ok lol...sometime friends meet up in odd places so I was just curious.

I think it would be a good idea to take the pregnancy test just before you see the doctor (which is a REALLY good idea too, btw, now that you've given me more info) because they will need to know that anyway. That way you can tell them what you know and it will speed up the process....if you get a negative, you say you aren't as far as you know.

I hope it's nothing too serious and all is ok for you soon. Keep me updated...I'm here for you anytime.
