I am having slight pain and discomfort on the right side of my lower abdomen close to my hip bone. This occured during PMS last month but went away after my period started. It has become persistent this month and has been accompanied by a low grade fever and regular PMS symptoms. My period is now 2 days late. Last night after sex, I had some pink discharge and assumed I was going to start my period but nothing happened. My husband and I have been trying for months to conceive with no luck. I took 2 at home pregnancy tests but both came back negative. Should I be worried?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the cause without examining you. Your symptoms could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Urine pregnancy tests can show false negative results at times hence they cannot be relied upon for accuracy. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough examination and further investigations to look for the cause (infection, inflammation, ovarian cysts, PID etc) and get started on treatment as indicated. If you suspect to be pregnant, consider getting further examination done (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) along with blood/serum HCG level test and ultrasound scan (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
