I had missed my period and about to miss this one now and have common cramps morely at night. My lower abdomen hurts when I press on it. I went to the doctor to take a urine test but I drank so much water that it was diluted and was barely lighter than clear water which must have given it a false negative. I am going to test again on the 1st because I will be over 14 days late. I have some symptoms like lower back pain,eating alot more but also getting a little nausea.I was wondering if anyone else had this problem. I dont want to take a million more HPT if I dont have. I am hoping that when I go to the doctor on the 14th the test will come out positive as long as I dont drink too much before I take the test.Anyone have this and found out they were indeed pregnant

I'm having these exact pains! I'm on the pill but was on antibiotics for my kidney and UTI infection, ive had pain from that but for the past three days I've had severe cramping like period pains, I never get these only the day my period comes usually depending how bad my flow is. But pain killers will not dull it down and a hot water bottle only kills it for a bit :( My period is due next week and several times last month I've had unprotected sex, I had a pregnancy test a few days ago and was negative, someone please tell me what's going on as its Freaking me out and all other sites are very unhelpful x x

Ok. It's been 2 weeks since the day i had sex. I've been cramping for almost a week now and absolutely no sign of a period. i'm also 3 days late on my period. My friend said i'm just being paranoid. Could i be pregnant?? I'm not having any other early pregnancy signs. Just the cramping. Should i take a pregnancy test just to be on the safe side and make sure?

Hey,

I did a HPT a week ago but it came back negetive, have now got really sore and tender breasts! i think maybe i could be pregnant, what does anyone else think, should i wait and do another test or should i get myself to the doctor? I would be greatful for any advice?

I have had the same thing for the past two months. I have been to two different doctors now, and both did blood work which came back negative. Since I am going through the same thing I would say to just save your money ( from seeing the doc) for a few more weeks. Unless the cramps get to be too bad, then I would def see a doc. In a few weeks if you see a doc you might ask to have an ultrasound done, if your insurance will cover it. Because if its in there IT will show up on an ultrasound.
   I am going next week for one. Also, I was told that if you think that you are pregnant then you should act like it. Dont carry heavy things. Dont try to overdo anything. Also if you wanted you could start taking prenatals. Its just vitamins so it wont hurt you if you arent. Sorry but thats all I can say. Good luck though

I'm 16 years old and I've been taking the Pill for a little over a year because I had bad acne. I was 12 when I got my first period, and for that whole week, I was in agony. After that, it got easier, but I was still in a lot of pain. When I started taking the Pill, I still had bad pain, but I could take painkillers and be fine. Well, for the past 4 months, I have been having severe stomach cramps like period pain in my lower abdomen, despite being on the Pill. This pain has been so bad that on more than one occasion I have been screaming and crawling because I can't walk. I have been to the GP more times than I can count. At first, he thought it was IBS, so I was put on a wheat-free and dairy-free diet for about 8 weeks and given more pills and tablets to take than I can count. I had blood tests and dairy tests and wheat tests but they all came back negative, though he told me to still keep on the diet. However, this didn't work, and when I told him how the pain was more severe a few days before my period, he said that he now thought it was endometriosis. I was placed on a different set of pills and told to monitor the pain, all the while keeping my Pill back-to-back, so I never had a period, to see if this helped with the pain. So I did. About 3 weeks ago, I was suddenly struck out of the blue with the most severe cramps yet. They were so bad I was screaming and sobbing in agony. My mum took one look at me and took us both to A&E. There, I was given morphine and kept over two nights, being given co-codamel every four hours. When we saw the specalist nurse, she told us that she didn't think that it was endometriosis, but more likely a cyst on my ovaries, since I was so young. However, when I had a scan last week, it showed my ovaries, my womb and my kidneys were all fine. The same specalist nurse then told us that I should keep on the Pill, and if I got the same pain again, I should have co-codamel and anti-inflammatries for three days straight to keep the pain managable; and if this didn't work to return to A&E. I should also try and avoid dairy for the time being. Unfortunately, the co-codamels and the anti-inflammatries make me constipated, so I weaned myself off them and have been fine for a few days, until now. Since yesterday morning and today, I have been experiencing the same cramps, though the pain hasn't just been to limited to my lower abdomen; after the cramps, I get a lingering pain in the rest of my stomach, as well as gas and the need to use my bowels. Yesterday's cramps weren't so bad, but today's woke me up in the early hours of the morning and have been on and off since then. About an hour ago, I had the worst ones of the two days. I took ibuprofen about two hours ago, but it barely took the edge off, and so I have just had co-codamel and a hot water bottle. I now feel sick and like my stomach is churning. Because of this pain, I am too terrified to leave the house in case I get cramps, which is awful because I'm starting school next week. I can't continue like this. I don't know what to do. My family and I are at the end of our tether. Does anybody have any advice about what I should do, regardless if you've had this type of pain or not? Please, I really need some help. Thank you. xxx

I am super late with my period. I've been having horrible cramping pains, feeling like I would start but I don't. I've been constipated and feeling very, very sick recently.  Currently I am a different kind of sick, as in runny nose and sore throat, lots of headaches, feeling like I'm going to throw up at night. I really need help. I don't have insurance so I'm scared to go to the doctor, and my pain is all over my stomach and in my back and neck.

I am in my early 30ies and i have never been pregnant. My period is about 3 weeks late. My husband and i have been trying to get pregnant but after a while we stopped trying. My doctor told me that there are a million explanations for a late period and if you really want to get pregant you actually start feeling pregnant and have all the signs and symptoms even when the test is negative. The only way you can ease your mind is to take the test and if it turns out negative then you know for sure. Like  a lot of  people on this forum, i am scared to take the test because i dont think i can handle another disappointment. Goodluck

Good day Ladies,

I am using Yaz contraceptives, 24 active tablets and four inactive placebo tablets.
My husband and I had sex (using a condom too but broke / tore) on the 16th, the day I  drank the last active tablet of the pack.
The following day I was supposed to be drinking the first of the four inactive ones.
My pharmacist recommended that I should drink active tablets for the following three days and then move back to the inactive tablets, which I did on Tuesday.
Just anxious whether I may be pregnant or not?

I will appreciate your opinions and experiences.

Me and my partner desperately want to get pregnant so its very fustrating. I know you wrote this a week or so ago so have you had any joy?

A lot of the time, even if you don't see anything on a scan, you can still have a cyst. Sometimes they're so small, they can only be seen with a vaginal ultrasound (uncomfortable, but the results are worth it). Don't give up! See someone else if you don't get any results. Some doctors are better than others when looking for things. Believe it or not, there ARE uneducated medical professionals out there. I had a cyst when I was 18 & it was the most miserable I have EVER felt!! Luckily, my doctor was the same one who delivered me when I was born & he was very knowledgeable. With the imaging tecjnology we have today, someone should be able to give you some answers. BTW: if you have to take painkillers & get constipated, either use a suppository or an enema every so often to keep from a potentially life threatning obstruction. I take painkillers & have for the past 3+ yrs. & even though my body is used to them, I still have that problem every so often. You're failr young & from your post, it sounds like you don't live in the US. I don't know much about foreign doctors or what kind of medical services you have, but when one person doesn't seem to get any answers, move on to someone else. What one person doesn't see, someone else will. Good luck to you & I hope you get some answers so you will feel better!

My husband and I are TTC since Oct 7, 2011 which was the first day of my LMP. We had sex till 18th day of my cycle on alternate days. Now I am due on nov, 7th or 8th. I felt cramps 2 days ago as if  i was about to have my period. My breasts are tender but they mostly are before my period too. So, I did a pregnancy test yesterday on 27th day of my cycle and it came out neg. I am very disappointed as I was really hoping to get pregnant. I have had 2 medical abortions about 3 years ago and I am 28. I am very worried. Could I still be pregnant even with a neg HPT??? Please help!

Ahh sorry to tell you, but "pulling out" has no contraceptive effect at all, pre *** can, and most of the times, does contain sperm, hope you're not pregnant!

However heavier then spotting should be. Although only only showing when I whipe. Now it's November 9th a week after my periodj is due and I still haven't started.
Two hpts came back negative.
My nipples hurt and are swollen.
Lower abdominal pains
Tired and always hungry.
Please help!

I Got Off Of Birth Control On October 22 & I Have Been On And Off Birth Control For A Couple Of Years, But When I Would Stop Taking The Pills I Would Always Get My Period Almost Immediately. This Time I Stopped Taking Them I Have Not Had A Period Since. I Have Period-Like Cramps Every Day But No Period, Just Clear Discharge. I Took A Test On The 22nd But It Came Up Negative. So i Called My Doctor & She Said I May Not Have My Period Because My Body Is Getting Back To It's Normal Cycle. But I'm Convinced I May Be Pregnant. I Think It Was Too Soon To Take The HPT. She Told Me To Wait Another 2 Weeks & If I Still Haven't Gotten My Period Then, Take Another Test. That Will Be Dec. 7th & I Will Be Almost 6 Weeks Pregnant By Then. I Hate Waiting... ):

Hi, I'm a 30 year old female. I am NOT pregnant. I have a history of having pretty severe menstrual cramps during my period. But the last couple of months I've been experiencing pretty constant menstrual-like cramping no matter what time of the month it is. These cramps feel much less severe than the cramps that I get on the first day of my period. But they are still bothersome, and more so they're beginning to concern me. I don't understand why I suddenly always feel like I'm about to start my period at any moment, even when it's not due. So far, I haven't had any unwarranted bleeding. Nor has my flow changed when my period actually arrives.

I've tried to look online for some answers, but everything that comes up is about pregnant women experiencing this. I am absolutely NOT pregnant. So has anyone experienced symptoms like this? Is it some sort of early menopause symptom?? Am I going to need a hysterectomy??

Thanks in advance for tales of experience, etc.

Hi,

I need some help too please!  I have had really bad cramping for about 4-5 days now, just like period pain but no period which couples really nicely with the constant backache! :) Even wore a heatpad all day yesterday! Today I feel really run down and nauseous.  We have been trying to concieve (conceive) but I'm only a couple of days late and don't want to jump to the conclusion of pregnancy due to dissapointment.

Any help would be great thanks! :)

I have also been getting alot of milky discharge (sorry i now its gross)but i would appreciate it if ANYONE could give me advice.

Hi Everyone,

I left a comment a few days ago and thought I'd update as I noticed no one else really does and I'm hoping it'll help a few of you as I was really puzzled by it all!

I read through nearly all of the comments on here saying most got negitive tests..  Mine was POSITIVE today! :)  I read up on the pains which said they were 'implantation' pains for the early stages of pregnancy (after which are usually picked up on pregnancy tests as your hormones are strong enough.  I used the advice of someone on here to wait as long as I could.  My pains stopped after after 5 days which, i read should last on average between: 1-5 days. This happens around the 4th week of pregnancy aparantly, so i'm now in my 5th week...

Not sure if this will help but I thought I'd write down how I felt the last week:

Nauseous - (PSI bands or Sea Sickness bands from Chemists)
Sore teeth (I didn't have sore breasts, just a tender spot on my right one)
Backache
Stomache Cramp (exactly like period pain)
Feeling Tired all the time!  But not sleeping very well.
Odd Headache
and milky discharge (sorry).  I read this is one to look out for for signs.
Peeing more often
Sensitive to smells like meat.... (uncooked ;)
Thinking seems to be too much effort this week.... Not sure if thats just me.

I'd recommend waiting as long as you possibily can even if it's a few days, I know how hard it is!  Plus don't pay attention to any pregnancy tests that say you can use it anytime.  Use it for your first pee of the morning always!

Hope this helps! and good luck for whatever outcome you are praying for :)

Hi, just wondering how long you waited to test? I've been having cramping for about 4-5 days now, subsided a little just today. Just started feeling nauseous/retching also today. Breast are a bit tender. Dizzy, headachey and irritated! Basically I have been feeling as though I'm about to get my period any moment now but haven't and I generally only get PMS cramps 1 day (2 max) before my period. My last period started 28th June but my cycles tend to last up to 40 days. We had unprotected sex since 22nd July, so I'm thinking I'd be too early to test now... It's driving me crazy not knowing though!

I think your extreme cramping could be in relation to having HPV.  HPV is a virus and there are actually over 100 varieties - some cause genital warts while others can cause cancer or polyps.  You need to go to a gyno to see if you have any visible signs of HPV that might need to be surgically removed (cysts/polyps, etc) and checked to make sure they are benign.  HPV can lie dormant for a long time, but if you have been monogomous with the same guy for 2 years, then although I am sorry to say this, but there might have been some cheating going on if he passed it to you (I'm not sure how long you have been diagnosed).  Anyways, go to the doctor and I wish you well.
