could i be pregnant?

i am trying to become pregnant for several years now. Apperently nothing is wrong. I was very regular all my life, 28 days. Last month my period was late 5 days but it was very light and short. Pregnancy test negative. This month I got my period 7 days earlier. It is also light, but I feel bloated and with occasional cramping on my left side. Could I be pregnant?

Hello,

I suggest taking a home pregnancy test.  Home pregnancy tests differ in their sensitivity (i.e., the ability to detect the hormone of pregnancy when it is present).  The most sensitive of these are First Response Early Result and Clearblue Easy Earliest Results.  The earliest either of these might detect a pregnancy would be at the time of the missed menses (generally ~two weeks after conception).  If negative, repeat in one week (and/or pay a visit to your ob/gyn).  

Best regards,

Dr. Downing

Hi I am trying to conceive after I had an abortion in 2003, my period was due on the 28 of August 2007, and there is no sign of bleeding, I am having menstrual cramps for 2 days now as if my periods are about to come, I am feeling awfully tired, have some dizziness as well, have tender and swollen breasts as well, can I be pregnant ? What can I do to for this cramping, can I take pain killers ?

I was on birth control for three months. I stopped taking them on August 15th and then had my regular cycle on the 17th. The last three days I have had headaches, periods of nausea, cravings, some mild cramping, and yesterday I started having some pinkish to brown discharge. I have also been really moody. I just want to sit and cry. I am not due to start for another week and a half. Can anyone give me any advice?

My last period ended the 7th of August, and then I got my period the day before yesterday (August 31st)
I thought I was pregnant because of swollen/sore boobs, headaches, nausia, and left side cramps in lower abdomian.
But I have my period now, but I still have symptoms and I have been reading other girls have had this too. My period is early so I'm thinking is it possible my body could be cleaning out whats in there?
And could I be pregnant??? Any advice, or opinions on this?

My first day of my last period was July 12, 2007. I am on a 28 day cycle and Aug. 9th was when my next monthly was suppose to start. Yesterday, I thought that I started at first but I notice it was much different from my period it was a light pinkish purple color and it just spots. I have had minor cramps with it and I would be going to start my period on Sep. 6th if I would have had one Aug. I have never been late on my monthly and I have had it for 11 years now. I am just wondering does anybody think this is implantation bleeding? Me and husband want a baby so bad. Please somebody reply. Thanks I have also taken 8hpt and 1 blood test. all neg. Could I be pregnant?

Hi sweetie, I just wanted to let you know that I went through the exact same thing, several hpt's (all negative) and a blood test (negative) and I still ended up being pregnant. Problem is, I didn't find out I was pregnant until I was 8 weeks in and had a miscarriage. It was a "missed abortion" and for some reason both tests could not detect it. It was really hard on my husband and even harder on me. But we're trying again now so hopefully it'll work out. The best advice I can give you is to visit your OBGyn ASAP and ask for an ultrasound. I hope everything goes well for you and I'll keep you in my prayers. Keep me updated. **BabyDust**

Oh I am so sorry. Thank you for the advise you gave me. Do you think I might be miscarriage.

My last period began August 10. I had unprotected sex on Aug 26th. I have been feeling nausea, fatigue, breast tenderness, and have been having these twinges in my stomach that feel almost like my daughter felt when she would move in my first pregnancy. HELP!!!

Let's hope that's not the case with you...Visit your doctor as soon as you can just so that you can get the answers you need. It's definitely better to be safe than sorry. Good luck.

The symptoms that you have described are most likely attributed to an upcoming period. If your last period was on Aug 10th, the next would be due on or around the 7th (assuming you are on a 28 day cycle). In the case that you did conceive as a result of unprotected sex on the 26th, it is still way too soon for you to be feeling any movement. Depending on whether or not you are hoping to conceive, this may be anxiety-related. I would advise you to take a pregnancy test on the 7th. If the results of that test come back negative, retest in a week. Good luck.

My last period was on Aug. 25th, and i had unprotected sex the last day of my cycle.. now for the past couple of days i have had strange cramping in my lower abdomen.. not on & off cramping like period cramps, more on-going tenderness. I feel like i almost have to be careful when sitting down. My pants are even too tight on my stomach.. & it feels bloated or bigger. isnt it wayyyy too soon for any of these to be pregnancy related????

228641_tn?1190908220
im sorry actually i had unprotected sex the last day of my period & also a day or two after it ended

I would think you are probably ovulating right now. Most women ovulate about 14 days after their period.
Blank
228641_tn?1190908220
Do you ovulate 14 days after the start of your period.. or the last day of it??
Blank
Avatar_n_tn
The start. So if your wanting a baby, I would say right now would be the perfect time to try.. : )  During ovulation most womens discharge is thinner. I know this sounds gross but if it kinda clear, watery and stretchy that is when your most fertile.  When I was ovulating it kinda felt like a peed on myself. I know every woman is probably a little different though. Good luck with everything! Hope everything turns out how you want it to!

I completely understand the turmoil. i on the other hand usually have irregular periods some cycles are 24 days some are 36 days. 2 yrs ago, i started taking the three monthly depot Mesigyna - bled for 3 months straight, switched to the pill not working for me got an IUD, worked wonderfully.  Had it removed after 1 1/2 yrs., 2 months ago. had a regular period now its 41 days since my last period  and 5 negative  hpts.  feeling bloated, occasional vomiting with left sided cramping pain intermittently. but not knowing if i am pregnant is driving me crazy I am going to see my OBGYN next week hopefully for an ultrasound and a blood test

i did urine tests at home but they gave a negative result and then i went for a Beta Hcg Blood test and the result of the counts were 0.0.
Can i still be pregnant?
The result given by my blood test is right or wrong...can this type of test give a 0.0 result?
But iam gaining punds near my stomach area.
