**worried-pregnant?** (Page 1)

I really need your input on this. It’s freaking me out.

Last sexual (unprotected?) contact was June 11th, then I had a period on June 13th. However, come July 3rd, I started feeling nauseaus, like your really tired up until July 7th, on which I felt really really weak and lethargic. I started having booby pains along with that. It’s erratic and it shoots pain like crazy…not sure what it’s called, I think it’s called Mastalgia (?)

On July 8th, I had a very light period. I thought period is done by July 10th. Morning of July 12th, I decided to use pantiliners but when i peed at work, i saw brown blood on my pantiliner. And then it’s gone throughout the day. The following day, same thing happened, I only had rusty brown on my pantiliners. During those times…I am still feeling dizzy and very weak…

I am suspecting that it’s an implantation bleeding. Not sure though…but last July 10th, I had my Blood HCG Test taken and it came out as a negative. I wasn’t satisfied since I’m still feeling the symptoms.

The nausea started to taper off after a week but my boobs still hurts from time to time. Like right now I am okay. I also started to feel something in my lower abdomen. It’s like someone is poking my lower right abdomen from time to time.

I am really getting anxious because I really don’t know what to do. I have immersed myself with too much googling of “early pregnancy symptoms” to the point of paranoia and I cannot even sleep at night. I even tried to have other bloodwork done (all the tests in blood) just to see if there’s something wrong with me but the results came out as normal…that I am well. Blast it.

The doctor asked me to do another blood HCG test and it came out negative…

but I hit another roadblock. Exactly 3 weeks after the “light bleeding”, (July 29th to be exact), I got another “light bleeding”. I wiped myself with tissue paper and it came out as light red, faint red. The pantiliner itself is enough. After the "light bleeding", my lower back started to ache, like around the lower spinal area.

Home PT still says negative.

For the meantime, what do you think it is?

Is it really true that it’s still too early to detect HCG levels? Or is the time frame already long to determine that I am pregnant? I know women are very different from each other when it comes to pregnancy. I am anxious. Very anxious. a lot of people say I am not…but I can still feel that there is something going on with my body.

Help? I am absolutely going bananas.

-*-*-
You know what is really a killer? I guess I have to raise the baby by myself…I have split with my boyfriend last time..so I guess it’s a double whammy.

Thank you and I hope I can get a fairly opinionated and rational response.

usually you have to test at least 19 days after your missed period but some ladies take longer for their hgc levels to show up. speak to your doctor and see what he/she advises to do next.

If you were pregnant, it would have shown up on the blood test and/or hpt by now. I'm thinking you're not pregnant.

It sounds like something could be going on with your hormones. Sometimes, your hormone levels shift and you will just start having lighter periods, ovulating early so you have periods 3 weeks apart, or having anovulatory bleeding--what seems like a period without ovulating (these cycles can be much much shorter or longer than normal). An occasional anovulatory bleed can be normal due to stress, change in diet or exercise, illness.

Your best bet is to go in and see your gynecologist and get your hormone levels tested as well as your thyroid and see what is going on with your cycles.

Imbalanced hormones can cause pregnancy type symptoms, as can thinking you are pregnant.

Rosejackson,

the thing is i haven't really missed a period at all.
July 8th - light period super light
July 29th - much lighter than July 8th plus when you wipe it, the colour is faint red then as days went by it became rusty light brown.

Took HPT (First Response) Aug. 5th - negative

hi cln1812,
Aug 5th - First Response Test HPT - Negative

I am dumbfounded. Still really feeling preggo up until know ma'am.. Really. Well I have not experienced anything like this before...and obviously through the process of elimination, I would go back from the last sexual contact that I had...

Btw, with the spotting that I had...the colour and flow seems like it's so different, plus the lower spinal backaches. I am not really wishing for this to happen as I don't want to be preggo.
Truth to tell, the baggage might be more on emotions as I am still not prepared for everything.

Were there cases wherein HCGs cannot be detected at all (up to this time) & end up being pregnant?
I am not defying the results...just dumbfounded.

If I get an Ultrasound, will it show already if there is something inside?

Hi Rose Embarassed
I have taken my last HCG Test last Aug. 7 and it's a negative.
Wow. Im paranoid eh?

So the doctors had me checked for other hormonal imbalance clues and they found out that my hormone DHEA-S or the Androgen hormone is higher.

The normal for women aged 13-29 is <11.0 while I have gotten a 13.9

I also did a pelvic ultrasound / transvaginal

and this is what it said on the result:

The uterus measures 24 x 35 x 66mm
The endometrium is unremarkable at 3 mm dlm
The ovaries are normal. there is no free fluid.
No obvious hernia is identified.

OH well. I still haven't gotten my normal period yet.

Is it really true that it’s still too early to detect HCG levels?

If you've taken a blood test and it was negative, then you're NOT pregnant... not much more we can say until nine months pass. Either a baby will pop out, or you'll just move on.

Did it happen to someone you or someone you know? You seem to be speaking from experience in reference to negative blood tests yet the girl is still pregnant.
