That has not been my experience. I know my body well and had to go off BC before getting pregnant before. After having been on BC for 5 years, my body was totally normal. And even missing pills, I am quick to bleed. But nothing now and several pg symptoms. Neg tests for two weeks now. Tested again this am. And I had what looked like a textbook case of implantation bleeding (identical to every description I've seen) 2 weeks ago. But if that's what it was, I should test positive by now. (There was no actual blood like component, so it couldnt have been just a light period. Pinkish discharge, heavy, very not normal. Definitely not bleeding, not even drops.)View Thread
It probably is a new pregnancy. There is no way an hCG level that far in would have been a sustainable pregnancy. I got pregnant with my daughter 6 weeks after a miscarriage. Didn't the dr do an u/s following your miscarriage to make sure nothing was left that could cause infection? If they did and nothing showed up, that would be your answer. Having a new u/s would tell you how far along you are. I'm sorry for your miscarriage. I know that horrible feeling all too well. But congratulations on your pregnancy! I hope it's a smooth 9 months!View Thread
So I have no idea when I would have ovulated. I was on BC, missed a couple of pills (no bleeding after, which is unusual, very unusual), then two weeks later, I went off BC because we would like to get pregnant soon. I waited and no period ever came. I usually bleed if I miss one day. So far, I have been off the pill for more than two weeks and no period. A few days after I went off the pills, I had some pinkish tinged discharge. I mad had some gross discharge ever since- heavy, white, sticky, not at all normal (sorry for the TMI). I also started feeling crampy, very tired (but I'm also really busy), I feel queasy every now and then, and had a bout of heartburn out of nowhere. I have taken 4 pregnancy tests in the last couple of weeks, but they are all neg. I know I get pos tests bc I did with my first pregnancy (miscarriage) and the second when I was pregnant with my daughter.
I know someone posts to everyone that maybe you don't ovulate and that's why you wouldn't have a period, but BC keeps you from ovulating and you still get a period, so that doesn't make sense. And being on BC and always getting one, I don't think that's it. My schedule doesn't permit me time to see a dr until October. I'm not sure what to do other than take more test every four days or so and see if a period surfaces in the next couple of weeks. I guess I'm just looking for a few yes or no votes. I would appreciate the input.View Thread
Cloudy urine is a big indicator of a urinary tract infection. I would go to the dr and get tested for that. Mention to them that you may be pregnant and ask them to check. If you are, that would be important info in choosing an antibiotic.View Thread
First of all, I took an hpt this morning and got a BFN. BUT don't know if I'm taking it too soon. I actually dont know when I ovulated. I stopped taking the pill on Sunday. We were planning to start TTC next month. I usually start bleeding two days after stopping, three at the absolute latest. No bleeding yet. It's been 5 days. Today, I started having pinkish discharge (gross, sorry). I've been crampy all week, but just assumed my period would be starting, I missed 2 pills (went out of town and forgot them) a few weeks ago. Five days after I started taking them again, DH and I got together. I realized right after that we should have used back up. That was 11 days ago. In addition to the cramps and gross stuff, I've been really tired and nauseous (but too soon for "morning sickness?"), perhaps some slight breast changes. I'm thinking I should test agains on, but my concern is that I have a dentist appt in the am and wonder what I should do about the x-ray. If I'm pregnant, I don't want it to hurt the baby. Any thoughts?View Thread
