I really need someone's help. My name's cassie and i'm 15. I think I am almost 6 weeks pregnant...But I think it's an ectopic pregnancy.I feel absolutely horrible ,and i'm going insane trying to think of what to do.
Okay ,i'm just going to start from the begining.
If i'm pregnant then I concived on october 30th.We used protection ,so I didn't think anything of it.After that ,over the month of november , i've drank alcohol (smirnoff twisted and bud light if that's of any importance) ,smoked weed (3 days in a row if that matters) and cigarettes(close to half a pack a day) ,and (i don't know if im being obsessivly paranoid here) went on those rides the flip you upside down and spin you in circles.
I swear I had no clue I might be pregnant until two weeks ago when I missed my period.And i've only smoked 2 cigarettes since then.I know I shouldn't have smoked at all the second I missed my period ,but it was hard.
Okay ,well after I missed my period ,i decided to wait a week to see if it was just late. But I started having these sharp ,unbearable shooting pains on the left side of my stomach about 6 inches below my breast.At first I thought nothing of it ,but it continued.
So I started checking around and I read the severe pain like that is a sign of an ectopic pregnancy. That really scared me because my mom had a history of ectopics and miscarriages before I was born. (are ectopics hereditery?)
but the thing is ,this past monday and tuesday ,i took two pregnancy tests ,and both came out negative.
So ,if anyone has any idea what's going on ,or if anyone has experienced anything similar , please please let me know.
Would it be safe for me to wait another week before I go to the doctors?Because maybe my period is just late ,and I really don't want to upset my dad and have to go to the doctors if there's nothing to worry about.
And , is there even the slightest chance that maybe it's not an eptopic pregnancy? Is it possible that I might be pregnant but everything is fine? Like , maybe my hcg levels are still to low to detect?
I'm sorry this is so long , but i'm just so worried and so scared , anyone who has any kind of information ,please e-mail me.
If you think you may be pregnant especially if you think it is ectopic (what makes you think that) you really must get to a doctor.
A scan should pick up if the baby is growing somewhere other than in the uterus (ectopic) and if it is then you need medical treatment as soon as possible.
If it isn't ectopic you need to review your choices about what to do about the pregnancy.
Good luck honey
I thought it might be ectopic because I started getting these sharp stabbing pains on the left side of my stomach ,which is unusual for me. And when I missed my period , I started reading up on it ,and I found out it could be an ectopic pregnancy.I'm just really worried ,you know?I've never had a pregnancy scare before and I just thought of the worst that could happen and started jumping to conclusions.I'm going to wait a couple more days to see if my period starts and if it doesn't ,then I am going to see a doctor.
Keep us posted on what the doctor says but please please do go to see him/her.
Ectopic pregnancy is serious and has to be dealt with.
If it turns out that you are not pregnant, maybe you could see your doctor anyway and see what birth control is available to you to avoid any future pregnancy scares.
Good luck and I hope you get the new you hope for.
Another thing is worrying about your period can make it late/skip.
If you are already late you should get an accurate reading on a home pregnancy test if you don't want to go straight to your doctor.
If the pregnancy test is negative wait a few days then if you still don't get your period test again, if you still don't get your period you really should see a doctor as there maybe something else wrong.
If the test turns out positive then i'm afraid you do need to take that big breath and see a doctor as you need to discuss your options and you need pre-natal care, not to mention you need medical attention if it should turn out to be ectopic.
Thank you.I still haven't gotten my period ,but the pains in my stomach went away so ,i think it'll be alright to wait a couple more days. My period it always on time ,so this freaks me out a bit.But then again ,i had two negative tests. Is there any way I could've screwed the test up and messed up the results?
Provided you followed the instructions they are fairly fool proof.
You need to use urine that has been in your bladder for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight.
Read the test after 3 mins (usually time) and that is the result - if it is negative the result can change to look positive if you leave it for a few hours this is because the moisture soaks the dye into the stick not because you are pregnant.
Sometimes people do get a negative test, even when they are pregnant often becasue they have low levels of hcg or didn't pee enough on the stick.
As before worry can make your period late even worry about falling out with a friend, worry about school, worry about home as well as worry about periods, your teens are a worrying time.
Please if you don't get your period soon, ask a teacher, your mom, friends mom, aunty or someone as you may well need to see a doctor (you can probably go to the doctor on your own if you want).
A thought I just had, do you eat ok???? Eating disorders or gaining/losing a lot of weight suddenly can have an affect on your periods.
I hope everything works out, don't hesitate to ask if you want to know anything else honey.
I eat fine.I haven't changed my diet in anyway or started doing anything differently.That's why this is weird for my , my period has always been perfectly normal ,even when i'm totally stressed out.
I didn't know you had to take the test early in the morning.I took it when I got home from school one day.But other then that I followed the directions the best I could ,like no excess fluid intake and stuff.
Its weird but I had the exact same pain a few days before I founf out I was pregnant. So being the worry-rat that I am I went to see an ob doc I found out im pregnant and he thought that is might be a cyst so he gave me an order for an ultrasound. But then about 2 days later the pain completely went away so I just threw the order away since I was about 5 weeks at that time and would not be able to see or hear the baby. But then 4 weeks laters at 9 weeks I miscarried the baby. I keep punching myself thinking maybe it really is an ovarian cyst and that might have caused my miscarriage.. But we're not sure. So today at 2:30 im going to the doctors again so they can check it out. I would be extra careful and go get it checked out even if the pain went again. I wish I could turn back time.. Then maybe my baby would still be growing inside of me. So please its better to be careful then sorry.
