Fiance & I are trying for baby no.1 (been off Yasmin pill for 3 months) Periods are regular - last ones were 8th October & 8th November, both 4 days long.
During the first month off the pill I had bad cramps, so the doc sent me for a pelvic ultrasound to rule out cysts (my mum had one). It was normal too & so they put the discomfort down to hormones regulating after the pill.
Two months on I'm now late for my period. I'm getting LOTS of watery discharge (have been for 2 weeks) with long stringy mucus (few inches long) The water is enough to soak my underwear through & I've never had this before. Had REALLY bad back ache & cramps, which makes it difficult to get comfortable in bed at night. Bladder feels fuller & need to go more often. Occasional dizzy/nausea spells & my urine is much stronger. I've had 2 urine analysis & it isn't a water infection. I've done 2 pregnancy tests over the past week & both are negative (last tested 10th Dec). Can you give me advice?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your symptoms of watery discharge, backache, cramps, increased frequency of urination, dizziness, nausea all are suggestive of pregnancy. Urine pregnancy tests can keep showing false negative test results due to less concentration of pregnancy hormone (HCG) in urine, and hence cannot be relied upon.
Visit your gynecologist for a blood HCG level test and ultrasound scan to confirm/rule out pregnancy.
Take care.
