Moning sickness, cramps, breast tenderness. Could I be pregnant? Please help.
Hi, I wondered if anyone could give me an answer to my question, or is having similar symptoms? My last period started on the 3rd October, my next period is due around 22 October. The day I finished my period, I had unprotected sex. Two days later I woke up at around 6.30am being really sick. Since then I have been sick every morning- the date today is 13th October. So it's just over a week of experiencing morning sickness. I also feel extremely tired and nauseated, I have sore breats and the pimples around the areola are raised, I have to go to the toilet often and I have cramps both side of my abdomen. I have had a blood test on the 6th October (last week) which came back negative for pregnancy, my HPTs are also negative. Is it possible to experience these symptoms so early on in pregnancy? And would human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) show up in my system a few days after conception, or is that too early? would that explain the negative pregnancy HTPs and blood test? Anyone who may have answers, I would be grateful for your help as I am really confused! Thanks a bunch x
It does not appear that you would be pregnant. Your periods are only 2 weeks apart??? You said it started Oct 3 and you expect it again Oct 22. It is highly unlikely you would have symtoms (symptoms) of pregnancy that resulted from sex 2 days after your period ended. Also Blood tests are the most sensitive and can pick up pregnancy very early.
Although it does occur it is quite rare that you would have even ovulated at that time. Ovulation usually occurs about 14 days after the first day of your period.
It seems thay mybe you have a virus of some sort that is rather persistent and should talk to your doctor about that.
If you had a period on October 3rd and you're due for your next period around October 22nd, then the chances of becoming pregnant are pretty much zero.
With such a short cycle it's highly doubtful that you are even ovulating. But even if you did ovulate/conceive there is not enough time before your next period for the embryo to implant. It takes about 10 days after conception (called the luteal phase) for the embryo to successfully implant in your uterus. Otherwise it just gets flushed out with your period.
If that was not a typing error, and your periods are that close together, then you need to see a doctor about getting your cycles straightened out.
Thanks Girlies for your comments, much appreciated. I just don't understand my symptoms though. I think I got a bit muddeled with my dates there- my cycles are pretty good and regular. I started taking the Oral contraceptive two months ago, in which i took two packs together to stop me from having a period on holiday. I have stopped taking these pills now (around 20th sep 05) and since I have had regular unprotected sex. I'm really not sure though! I just don't get the morning sickness, I thought if it was a bug, then I'd pretty much be puking up at all times of the day! Any more comments would be helpful, thanks a lot x
If you are asking what else could be causing your symptoms, the answer is virtually anything and everything.
Symptoms are not good indicators of pregnancy. You will have to wait until you miss or are late for your next period, do a test, and find out. It is useless to speculate "could you be or not". Any woman who has her reproductive organs and has intercourse with a man who is not sterile can come become pregnant, even if she is on birth control. So "the chances" mean nothing at all.
Sometimes women become pregnant against all odds on the best of birth control. Other times someone might have intercourse at all the prime times unprotected and not become pregnant. See where I'm going with this?
The only thing you can do is to wait and then test at the appropriate times. I know you want someone to tell you something now. Trouble is, no matter what anyone says, no matter if the chances are high or low--you will STILL have to wait and test to find out.
Well, I've been searching on the internet to answers to exactly the same question as I have felt very sick all day for the past three days since conception (the timing was right as it was about 11 days before my next period). I already have one child and felt exactly the same kind of sickness when I was pregnant with her but that occurred at the more normal time of 6 weeks into the pregnancy. So, I cannot answer your question but just wanted to let you know that I think it may be possible and someone else is going through something similar.
Sorry but i feel i have to butt inhere, many people DO in fact have menstrual cycles every 2 weeks, I am one of those people and as i understand from gynaecologists etc over the years, this is completely normal. Every woman is different. I certainly do not think this due to virus etc etc so would not go rushing off to the doc just on the basis that you've been told your cylce deviates from the standard norm!! Also, perhaps more importantly of course you would have to ovulate much sooner than the average 14 days otherwise your next period would be due and therefore you'd never ovulate!! The pattern and timings of your symptoms sound just like mine were a few months ago..and i can happily say that i am now 9weeks pregnant. I hope this helps you out..good luck xx
Don't have much to say on this subject other than last year I had a miscarriage and didn't return to the doctor as I should have to monitor my HCG levels. Because of my stupidity I actually developed a very rare form of cancer called a choriocarcinoma. Meaning cancer of the placenta. Rather than do a D&C after the miscarriage I choose the morning after pills and apparently did not expell everything.
I told you that to tell you this, the pregnancy tests that hospitals administer are uber accurate. I had to be monitored for an entire year after the chemo to see that my HCG levels returned back to 0. I started at 50k and the blood work is so sensitive it dected everything from 5 points, to .5 points on down to 0.
So if the bloodwork said not pregnant, then unless they've switched your test vial with someone else's you're probably not pregnant.
