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.
As far as I can see from this, ectopics aren't heriditary, although you're at a slightly higher risk of one if you've had one before.
These are the symptoms:
lower abdominal or pelvic pain
mild cramping on one side of the pelvis
amenorrhea (cessation of regular menstrual cycle)
abnormal vaginal bleeding (usually scant amounts, spotting)
low back pain
if rupture and hemorrhaging occurs before successfully treating the pregnancy, symptoms may worsen and include:
severe, sharp, and sudden pain in the lower abdominal area
feeling faint or actually fainting
referred pain to the shoulder area
*but* bear in mind these are general symptoms - heck, i've had these symptoms with periods! It also says you should have had a positive pregnancy test, which you haven't. I'd lay money on you just being panicky about this hun. Most of the time when you worry,things aren't serious.
If you've taken two preggo tests and it's 6 weeks since you conceived and you were using protection, you probably aren't preggo (provided you used the test properly). If you're worried, go and see your doctor, it's important - if you seriously think it's ectopic you must go to the doctor asap. Do you have to tell your dad? Can you just make up an excuse?
Don't worry about the smoking etc *if* you are pregnant it's not going to make a huge amount of difference in the first few weeks. Plus it's done now.
Doesn't sound like you need to panic hun. I've had pains like you've described and it turned out to be my body trying to annoy me. The only symptom you've had is pain, so it doesn't sound like an ectopic especially considering you've had two negative preggo tests.
I know you're stressed - pm me if you need to talk.
Well.. By the sounds of it it doesnt seem like you're pregnant.. Although there is still a chance. But the pain could also be from fast food or appendicitis or other symptons like that. Missing your period could be due to stress too... But if it worries you, ask your doctor.
I was sent into hospital when I had sharp pains on the left side of my stomach , and was fainting all the time.
They said they suspect an eptopic pregnancy
they did a real quick scan ( I didnt even get too see it ) and said the baby was fine and safe. They never told me what was causing the sharp pains unfortunatly, and the fainting was due too low blood pressure.
If you suspect an eptopic pregnancy, go too the doctors as soon as you can, because its not only harmful too the unborn baby, its harmful too you.
Thank you all so much. I'm going to wait until sunday and if I haven't had my period by then ,i'm going to go to the doctors. I know I should calm down ,but my period hasn't been late or irregular since I first got it , it always right on time. I think after I missed my period ,i just got all worried about being pregnant and then I started getting those pains and I started worrying even more ,so i'm kind of jumping to conclusions. And I read somewhere that when there is an ectopic pregnancy , hcg levels are abnormaly low so I figured there might not have been enough for the test to detect.
