Two weeks ago I had my regular menstrual period the following week I began to feel nauseous and weak. At the end of the night I vomited. The following days I continued to feel sick and begin having sharp abdomial pains that lasted about two or three days. About two nights ago I began to bleed again and seem to be having another menstrual period. I am still bleeding today.Three weeks prior to this I had sexual intercourse. Should I be worried and what should I do? Is it possible that I could've been pregnant?

F.Y.I.: I was also on ortho tri-cyclen lo birth control but I kept missing serveral days of dosages. I have taken the pill in about a week.

Get thee to an ER
From what you have described, it sounds like you possibly have (or had) an eptopic pregnancy, which can be life-threatening.

It is possible that you did have a "normal" period becuase the fetus was not large enough, or in the right location, to produce sufficient hormones to tell your body that you are pregnant.

Then, by the time another week had gone by, the fetus was big enough to start damaging your fallopian tubes. This is why you felt like hell and started to have abdominal pains. The most recent bleed could be from one of two things - your body has expelled the fetus on its own and you are experiencing another period, or b) (more likely) your fallopian tube has ruptured and you are losing blood from the damaged tube. The only way to tell which one has happened is to go to an ER.

DO NOT WAIT to see your doctor tomorrow. This is urgent and potentially deadly. You could die from immediate blood loss or from severe infection in a few days.

I wish you the best of luck and hope that you get the medical attention that you need right away. Don't fret about the costs. I am in earnest about the urgency of your situation.

When you have recovered, consider doubling up on your birth control. Especially if you are not in the daily habit of taking your pill at the same time every day. Even when taken according to directions, every method has a failure rate. If you add on condoms, NuvaRing, Depo Provera, gel, foam or anything else, you add an extra layer of protection from pregnancy. By the way "withdrawal" is not on the list. 85% of people who use this method become pregnant every year and are freely passing along STD's without concern for their partners' health, particularly the unmarried ones.

I personally use three methods all the time, and one of them is ALWAYS a condom, because I am cautious about whatever unknown disease we are passing around these days.

Now, turn off the computer and get a ride to the ER - don't drive in case you pass out or can't concentrate on driving!

I meant to say I have not taken my birth control in about a week and I forgot to mention that along with the sharp abdominal pains I was also having diarrhea

I have also had my period twice in 2weeks. i did take a plan B pill about 48 hours after sex. I had no side effets until about 8 days later, when my period started again. it was stated that spotting could accrue, after taking the plan B pill but I would not call it spotting because it seemed more like my menstrual cycle and lasted for about 5 says, I also had bad cramps.
I just wanted to know if this was common after taking a plan B pill, because my friends are saying it is not.
Reply if you know.thanks

Having my period twice within two weeks from taking Plan B
The Same thing is happening to me. I took plan B and for the most part could not tell of any side affects. Its been a little over a week and I just started my period for the 2nd time in two weeks. I was expecting spotting, especially because I had lost my virginity prior to taking to the plan B, but I was not expecting to have my period again. It is not as heavy as it usually is when I am on my period but its definitely not light spotting, I also have cramps. Is this normal?

two periods within two weeks
I have not been on pcp since April.. I have had normal menstrual cycles. I had my last period last Thursday a week ago. I stopped Tue or Wed and now today have a full blown period starting. What does this mean? I did have an atopic pregnancy 20 years ago but do know the feelings of horrible cramps and did rush to emergency and my fallopian tubes were saved. However, I do not have any cramps at all just normal sluggish feeling and moodiness I get when I get my period. What does this mean from your expertise?

That could be from the sex. Sex usually helps loosen the cervix and it will help you have your period sooner. My ob-gyn told me that having sex will help me loosen up for child birth.
