my husband and i have been trying to have a baby for awhile now. he was home for a short period of time and we did it many times. however i felt different one time, and now its like something is in my lower abdomen area near my right hip. it doesnt hurt. its just, there. i started my period when i normally should however it lasted only 3 days instead of the normal 5 to 7. the period is normal with the lining and all but i still have that feeling near my right hip like something there. could i be pregnant?? i took a test but it hasnt been 2 weeks yet since the day i felt the first change after sex. help??
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The urine pregnancy tests done very early in pregnancy can show you false negative results as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results (usually starts showing positive results after about 7-10 days of missed/abnormal period, or about 18-20 days after ovulation). Few women can experience period like bleeding during expected period time during first few months of pregnancy which is also known as Decidual bleeding. If you are pregnant, it is possible that you are having decidual bleeding (especially if the bleeding occurred around your expected period time). If you suspect chances of pregnancy, or if symptoms have been persistent, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
