ok here is my situation: last month af came on time but only lasted 2.5 days, normally 5-6 days, the flow was lighter than normal and bright red. I only had slight cramps the middle of the first day, also strange. I always have bad cramps the whole time. I am on the patch(fourth month now) but sometimes it doesn't stick well or peels up. The week before af last month I had strange cramping in my lower abdomin (abdomen) and sharp pain near my naval. After af I tested and negative waited two days and still negative. Now this months af is due next week and I noticed my breasts are tender, discomfort in my lower abdomin (abdomen) and I have urninated so much this past month also I have gotten dizzy spells hot flashes (i'm only twenty) I noticed that the blue viens in my chest are very noticeable I feel sick after I eat but never actually vomit and today when I wiped I noticed light pink on the toilet paper and a few spots on my underwear. what's going on? could I be pregnant?
I don't know much about the patch but anything is possiable there is a chance you could be pregnant wait a week then take another test you can have a period and be pregnant at the same time I know in my pregnancy I didn't have hardly any symptoms of being pregnant except my breast being tender this was when I was like 1 month alone I didn't really start getting the symptoms until I was 2 or 2 1/2 months alone but everywoman is different well good luck to you and just relax.
If I were you I would go get another test and if it is still neg. think about going to the doctor to get a blood test done if the symptoms you are having persist. but you have to try to relax (even though it is easier said than done) because stress can hold your period off too.
I posted a reply on the open forum to your question on Robitussin....I used 2tsp 2 times a day for 5 days leading up to ovulation...I also read that you can follow the maximum dosage per day directions as well. I got pregnant this past cycle but it was a chemical pregnancy, but I still think the Robitussin helps create a more favorable environment for sperm to live a little longer. Also more alkalinity/less acidity will help too. I juice wheatgrass and drink it twice a day and it has so many health benefits as well as it helps to reduce the amount of acidity in your body...helps to create a more alkaline system. If you've never tried wheatgrass, you should read up on it and give it a try....there's so much online about wheatgrass and it's numerous benefits...I've got myself, as well as my husband and 9 year old son on it....Read about it, you'll be amazed at it's value....Not just for someone ttc, but for anyone wanting to live a healthier life....I think it's probably one of the best things you can put into your body. Just look up keyword "wheatgrass" and go from there....you'll be impressed I promise...
I took the Robitussin 2 times per day (2 tsp.) just as silo did. Just make sure that the ONLY active ingredient is Guaifenesen and there are no initials in the name (ie..DM, CF, PE). Those contain nasal decongestants and can actually dry you out. The bottle should also say expectorant. Good Luck to you! Shannon
