My boyfriend had a vasectomy 10 years ago. Recently, he had an infection in his testicles. They swelled and caused him a lot of pain. The doctors couldn't give an explanation. I have been with him for 6 years and since he has had the procedure, we don't use any form of birth control. In 2004, I went to the doctor because I was having extreme cramps and bleeding a lot. My periods were always crazy and I never followed a pattern. They told me I had a cyst on my right ovary. But a year or two after I began seeing my boyfriend, my periods evened out. They weren't so heavy anymore, and it is always 30 days and then I start again. I have a discharge for a day, then I bleed for 5 days then a discharge for 2 days. I've been to the doctor for other problems and have had ultrasounds and they say nothing about seeing a cyst. I'm not sure if I still even have it. My last period was September 17-20? It was a weird one. I only bled for about 4 days. It was "light" for me. I've been having back aches lately. I feel sick to my stomach a lot(mainly after I eat), my breasts are very sore...I feel like I sleep horribly at night, and I'm always tired here lately. I feel "weird" things in my stomach. It feels like a popping sensation. Sometimes a flutter. I'm having all these weird symptoms like I could be pregnant. But I took two pregnancy tests 6 days ago and they came back negative. Could there be a possibility that I'm pregnant? The doctor that did his vasectomy DID NOT cauterize the ends. They were just cut and sewn. It seems like my period it "trying" to come but I have had a light brown discharge off and on today. It's really faint...I'm not sure what to do...Should I take another test????
