could i be pregnant and have a Ectopic pregnancy or a miscarriage?
my period came on time but for three days i had a really bad cramping feeling in my lower stomach but when i tried to put a tampon in it hurt and wouldn't fit all the way in. if i sat a certain way or moved a certain way it would hurt realy bad and feel like a cramping presure. i have gotten dizzy and felt faint and had a really bad headache for those 3 days . my period gets really heavy at certain points but its lasted almost a week and a half now which is't normal. i have had pregnancy symptoms like discharge, tiredness, diarrhea, bloating (which could have been because of my period) and tender breast but i took a home pregnancy test and it came out negative. and the sex was nov 11 which would make me 6 weeks and 2 days .
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe (abdominal cramps, prolonged bleeding, dizziness, feeling faint, headaches, increased vaginal discharge, increased tiredness, changed bowel habits, bloating, tender breasts, etc) could suggest pregnancy chances if you had been sexually active without protection around your fertile days. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. The urine pregnancy tests done very early in pregnancy can fail to show you positive results as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. If you suspect chances of pregnancy, 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. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
