well..depending on when your last period was you could very well be pregnant...any time you have unprotected sex the risk is high..its good you've gone to get tested...i dont think diarhhea is a pregnancy symptom especially that early on...theres really no way of knowing until your test comes back...good luck

That is not an early pregnancy symptom.

When is your period due?

Diarrhea in early pregnancy
Yes it is, I'm sure because I am a nurse. It's ok, it's your bodies morning sickness. Make your doctor aware of it and drink plenty of fluids to rehydrate yourself. Don't worry, everything will be ok. If someone judges you, ignore them!!! No one on this world is in a position to judge. Good luck sweet heart!

Ok I have a question, me and my boyfriend have unprotected sex but I've had an iregular period since I had to stop taking my birth control a year or more back but I usually only miss one period but now I've missed two, this month will make 3 missed. I've been extremely moody and have been using the bathroom more and more. Could I be pregnant?

Diarrhea was my first symptom with both of my pregnancies. Except I would have it for about 2 weeks. Strange, but true!

It can be a symptom!
OMG When I had my first child I had diahrea for the first 2 weeks, and thought I had salmonella poisioning - the drs couldn't figure out what was wrong - everything was coming back negative - except a blood test, which they did not do - they put me on antibiotics and then a week later I took a First Response home pregnancy test and sure enough, I was pregnant! I now have a beautiful 7 month old baby boy!

It is too early for a pregnancy test. The box should give clear instructions that the tests work most accurately if taken when you miss your period.

You are far too 'early' even if you are pregnant, to have those kinds of intense symptoms. Most women's first symptom is their missed period.

Wait until your period is due and take another test with your first morning urine. Until then, you might want to see a doctor because it sounds like youmight have the flu.

I am 28 and my husband and I just started to try to have a baby. My last period started on Nov 9 and my cycles are usually 32 days. We tried all this month and now I am just waiting. I have a had mild cramping on and off, plus some sharp cramps on my right side. My boobs feel fuller and tender and I have had diarrhea today? I have also had a few times with waves of nausea. Does this sound like pregnancy??

Diarrhea is definitely a pregnancy symptom
Diarrhea was the only sign I had in my last pregnancy. I felt just fine, and then on xmas morning I was having extremely bad diarrhea, everytime I ate I would feel sick and have to go poop, I never threw up though.This lasted for about 3 days, then I took a test because my period was late, and there it was positive. Diarrhea is definitely a sign, you should also go see your doctor and have them take some blood samples. If you have taken 5 test and still no period something is not right, you need to be seen.

extreme diarrhea but no missed period. Am i pregnant?
I am 23 and I have been having extreme diarrhea and nausea for the last week. I have not missed my periods since the last time i had sex. At one point the condom did break but we stopped and got another. I also take BC. I maybe threw up twice this week. I was starting to feel better the last 2 days until this morning. I live in another country so it's harder for me to get a blood test. My period is suppose to start in a few days.

Can (extreme, liquidy) diarrhea be a symptom if I haven't missed a period since the last time I had sex 1 and 1/2 months ago?

My last period started on July 23 and I haven't had another period since. I had diarrhea around August 20 for about a week. I've had frequent urination. My boobs are fine and I haven't had back pains or cramps. I've had diarrhea yesterday and today again and I've felt nauseous but haven't thrown up. I took a at home pregnancy test 2 weeks ago and a couple days ago and they both came back negative. Could I be pregnant?

I am reading so many responses that hit home with me, but no answers. I too have been trying to conceive since 8/30 when I had my merina removed and my period was regular 9/13 and 10/13, then about 10/25 I started to have some spotting that started out darkish and gradually changed to pinkish, this lasted for about 2 days. My OB said it was probably related to ovulation and not to worry. About a 2 wks now I have been feeling nauseous but(like most of you)haven't thrown up yet...it gets close sometimes. I was due for my period on 11/12 and am now 4 days late. I took a HPT on 11/13-negative and then again 11/15-again negative?!?! I have noticed other symptoms as well like, heavy breasts, sensitive nipples, mild re-occuring headaches, lower back pain, acne(and I usually do not have acne), a heavy feeling in my stomache, constipation accomanied by diarrhea, and fatigue. I called my OB this morning and had blood drawn this afternoon...hopefully I will find out I am pregnant tomorrow! I have been relying on the wisdom of others throughout these forums, but honestly only read other symptoms and very few actual answers. I will let you all know as soon as I find out tomorrow!
