are you continuing to have unprotected sex? If not, i would say that a negative pregnancy test 4 weeks later would be definitive. Test with first morning's urine. If you have been continuing to have unprotected sex, a negative test doesn't carry as much weight as you could have obviously gotten pregnant within the last two weeks and the test just hasn't reflected a positive result yet.View Thread
What is the period disorder? I assume your gyno has checked the anatomy of your uterus and ovaries to make sure there is nothing wrong there--such as a twisted follopian tube or ovary.
Endometriosis can cause pain and cramping during intercourse. I think due to your age and sexual activity--regardless of symptoms an annual gyno exam is in order. you can request a complete std work-up at that time as well. When you call, I would express urgency in getting in to see someone.View Thread
If she had a normal period...how could she be pregnant? I can see how should could have exposed herself to pregnancy during recent intercourse (though she never mentioned it being unprotected). Regardless, if her recent intercourse resulted in pregnancy...she would need to wait (as you said) a couple of weeks to get an accurate result.View Thread
someone...perhaps you posted an extremely similar question. here was my input.
I am on the pill and have had a similar bleeding scenario you describe. which in theory shouldn't happen because pills are usually clockwork.
have you been on birth control pills and stopped? did you at any point in the last month use Plan B?
My inclination would be not to worry about it. if it continues, definitely consult a doctor.
Are you using protection? in theory a short, light bleed outside of your period could be implantation bleeding. However, the timeframe you suggest of your period ending and the intercourse would make implantation bleeding unlikely.View Thread
I see this is an old post--renewed. I am currently awaiting my period...as in it should start any minute. This morning I woke up with a huge bruise on my arm. My son did take a nip at me last night (teething)...but no way should a bruise like that occur. So this post was very aptly timed. It wasn't long ago I had a complete blood work up done--including kidneys, liver, thyroid--all normal.View Thread
When was the unprotected episode? if it has been within 72 hours, you can take Plan B of Next Step (same thing) to help protect against possible pregnancy.
As far as how long to wait. Definitely consult your gyno...he/she would have that information. All I could find is that you should definitely stop taking it...one site said six weeks prior to conception...another site said as soon as you find out you are pregnant. If you just had the unprotected sex (it takes about a week to conceive and implant)...you already have three weeks clean from the drug. That is assuming the unprotected episode leads to pregnancy.
Gail: out of curiosity...considering all the warnings i have read about this drug and pregnancy, why does it have only a category C FDA pregnancy rating?View Thread
I know certain medications can cause sexual side effects. What comes to mind are anti-depressants. I am not certain what all would be considered in the definition of sexual side effects, but I suspect inability to feel/climax would be one of them.
Have you talked to your gyno about this? Perhaps there is something hormonal at play. Maybe a thyroid check is in order.
Personally, i experience inability to climax or feel pleasure. This is a recent issue for me and i believe mine is related to an anti-anxiety medication i am on and perhaps hormone changes after having a baby.View Thread
This is going to sound crazy. My son (16-months) had a leaky diaper the other night (didn't discover it until morning). we washed his bedding immediately on hot along with other clothing items, his toys, etc. When I went to place the bedding back in his crib (it acts as a liner he sleeps upon), I noticed a few bleech spots. There was absolutely no bleech used in that load of laundry or multiple loads before. This bedding (quilt) has been washed multiple times with hot water without any adverse effect on the quilt. Nothing else in the wash was affected. Could his urine have caused the quilt to bleech in some places?View Thread
what was the doctor's/technician's response to this? I assume it was a vaginal ultrasound. I am confused why your hcg levels would be rising if you weren't in fact pregnant. I would ask for another ultrasound.View Thread
