Hi, I have been feeling very moody, and sleepy for more than a week now. My period was late, I did a pregnancy test, and a blood test on Thursday 04/08. Both were negative, but another test(04/08) showed that I have ovulated. My period started 08/08, and I have more bad moods, sleepiness and even hightened sense of smell, and no apetite at all. Is it possible that I can be pregnant? When would be a good time to test again? I am also sick, and want to take my antibiotics, but I am afraid that if I am pregnant it will affect the pregnancy. Any advice will be appreciated.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms (feeling moody, increased sleepiness, delayed periods, increased sensitivity to smell, loss of appetite) could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. The appearance of symptoms depends on how your body reacts to the changing hormonal status. Few women can get period like bleeding (decidual bleed) during first few months of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if you suspect chances of pregnancy. 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). Pregnancy tests done early in pregnancy can show you false negative results, hence you can consider repeating the tests in next 7-10 days.
Avoid taking the antibiotics unless pregnancy chances are ruled out. If pregnancy gets confirmed, request your gynecologist for prescription of safer ones that can be taken during pregnancy.
