What would you do if...?
Q: I know people are sick of the "Could I be pregnant?" questions so I'm not asking if you think I'm pregnant, I just want to know what you would do if you were in my shoes...My cylce is usually 28-30 days long and pretty much regular. My last NORMAL period was April 10. It lasted about 5 days. I had intercourse on April 26th using the "pull-out" method. Then, in May my period was due around May 10. However, it was about 5 days late. May 15th I spotted, just when I wiped, so naturally I assumed my period would start that day, but it was just spotting with a little discharge. Then, May 16th it stopped for the whole day. May 17 it came on again and lasted for 4 days with a light flow, meaning not enough to fill a pad.I had every symptom you could think of, pertaining to pregnancy so I took a test after I came off my "period" in May. It was negative. Then a week later I took 2 more, they were both negative. Meanwhile, I'm still having the pms symptoms, its almost like they never stopped, just off and on since late April. My thing is this, I don't think I'm pregnant, but I do wonder why I'm still having all the symptoms. My ex-boyfriend still wants me to take yet another set of hpts and he wants me to go to the doctor and get a blood test done. I don't want to bother taking more tests since they've all come back negative. What do you think? Should I even waste my time taking more hpts? Should I even go to the doctors?Also, if I am pregnant, my ex wants me to get an abortion, which of course I don't want to do. I told him I would get one just to shut him up, but in my heart I don't think I could go through with it. Would you get an abortion just because you're not with the father anymore?Sorry this is so long and thanks for all that answer...
A: Depending on when you ovulated, it is possible that you could be pregnant. With the timing of the intercourse and using the "pull out" method, which isn't very reliable birth control, coupled with the fact you're still having symptoms... it wouldn't hurt to test one more time.A blood test is definitely the most accurate, in that it can detect pregnancy the earliest. As for the boyfriend: he is your EX!!! He should not be pressuring you into doing anything you don't want to do. Even if you are pregnant, he can't force you to get an abortion or do anything else you don't want. If you are pregnant and want to keep the baby, that's your choice. If you want to give it up for adoption, it's your choice and so on. Do what's right for you, not what he wants. If he wants nothing to do with a baby, then my suggestion would be to have him sign papers to terminate his rights if you are pregnant and decide to keep the baby. Good luck to you and I hope everything works out for the best. :)
Kinda period, kinda pregnancy question..?
Q: So, I've done a lot of research, and while I know nobody is the same, or has the same symptoms and such, I really think that I'm pregnant... I had sex two and a half weeks ago, unprotected. And I started getting some early pregnancy symptoms, and I just felt like something was different with my body. At the end of July I stopped taking my birth control (they weren't agreeing with me), after having been taking them for 3 1/2 years, and I had my period on August 9th which was relatively regular even though I wasn't on the pill anymore. It was even normal, a little heavier than it was when I was on the pill, but other than that it was the same.Now, I should have started my period on this last Sunday, the 6th, but I didn't. Then Tuesday rolls around, and I had this like brownish discharge (like old blood, but I don't usually get this until the end of my period) at like noon. All day, I only had that, but it was on and off, and it wasn't even heavy enough to get onto a liner even if I waited hours to go to the bathroom. Then I had a little bit of red blood once went I wiped, but after that no more. Then today, I didn't have any blood, no brown stuff when I woke up, so I took a pregnancy test, and it was negative. However, it was only three days after my missed period, and it wasn't a top of the line test (it was a Natureplex Be Certain kind) so it might not be able to pick up low levels of hcg... Then about an hour later, I started spotting... Some red, some brownish. Now, about 9 hours later, I've only got red blood, and to me, it seems like more than spotting, but its still only very barely getting onto a pad... and there are a few like clots.. but they're tiny compared to what I'm used to...So pretty much my question is how much would you consider spotting? I've looked for it, but no where specifies how much blood spotting would be. And if there are little bitty (like as big as a number on a cell phone) clots does it mean it is my period? or could it still just be bleeding and it could still be possible for me to be pregnant?I'm still gonna keep looking, and hoping that its not my period, but does anybody have any answers? I know this is a lot to read, and not all of it is necessary info but...
A: I really think the odds of you being pregnant are low. I believe what you are experiencing are the changes your body needs to make to readjust to not being hormonally supressed. After taking the pill for that long, it will take more than a month for that readjustment to happen. In some cases, it can take up to a year for the natural monthly hormone cycle to show up again. Most of the time it takes 3-6 months. What you describe is old endometrium. The lining isn't entirely shed each month, and with the pill you tend not to build up a lot. But there is always some old stuff around. As the lining ages, the individual red blood cells break down and clump together. The liquid leaks out, so what you are left with is a sort of cell goo. The hemoglobin was long since recovered, so the cells no longer have that to turn them red in the presence of air. So they do look like clots or golbs of some liver stuff. The fact that you are seeing them suggests that your body is still trying to get things straightened out. The pill works by tricking the body into thinking you are already pregnant. What you have each month is not really a period, but what is called a withdrawl bleed. You withdraw the hormones that supress the ovulation, and your body thinks you delivered a child. That brings on the rest of things. In this case, you are not supressing ovulation anymore, but your body is having to adapt just as it would if you had been pregnant and delivered. It would be highly unlikely you ovulated this past month. Not impossible, but not probable. I realize you want to be pregnant, but I just don't think this is what's happening to you. I really think this is the natural result of not taking the pill and letting your body take over again. It would be best for a potential pregnancy to wait at least another month or two before you really try getting pregnant as well. Your body really does need to go through at least one or two natural cycles, to be sure it has everything in sync. A pregnancy test at this point would be fairly accurate as well. It is far more likely to get a false negative than a false positive, because either the pregnancy hormone is there or it isn't. You can repeat the test again in a week, at which point you would have a very accurate test you could depend on as your final word. But I would not recommend getting your hopes up at this point. I really do think you are not pregnant, and simply adapting to not taking the pill.
I ask this question a lot but now I'm really concerned....?
Q: This is a question I realized asked in a non question way. When I was supposed to have my period it was only 2 days light and I only spotted, I mean, no blood making a mess, barely any blood when I wiped, and no blood in my urine like when you get when you start your period. In other words my period was really light, I didn't get any cramping and it lasted only 2 days... Thing is, I took 2 at home pregnancy tests, on during the afternoon/evening and one first thing this morning both negative... If you think of it as that having not been my period I would be considered 9 to 10 days late, if that was my period though it was way to light and not enough pain and 'torture' normal periods give you... So what do you think it is? Pregnancy or just my period being off normal? Supposedly the pregnancy tests I used were 99 percent accurate... On the other hand My fiance' and I have been pretty save, using the withdrawal method and before he's ready to climax he puts a condom on and finishes...
A: It's hard to say if you're pregnant or not. Just keep testing until you get a positive or a normal period. What you're doing is not safe if you're trying to prevent pregnancy. Pulling out is not birth control because the fluid that comes before climax contains sperm. It may decrease the chance but does not eliminate the risk of pregnancy.
