Hello, I'm 37 years old and had my tubes tied nearly 9 years ago. Over 2 weeks ago, i thought what appeared to be a stomach flu or something with nausea, vomiting, diahrrea, head ache, few chills, then had a sting in my right breast, then had a sting in my left breast a week later. This has been the case on and off for over 2 weeks now. In the process of all of this my period was a couple days late, but when it came, i spotted for a couple of days (brownish, pinkinsh and maybe an orange looking color also), then the bleeding became a little heavier for 2 days, then stopped over night. Woke up nothing, but a couple of hours later, i started to spot again, but now it's back to nothing. I'm having the head aches still, extreme nausea all day (waking up early in with strong hunger pains), dizziness, a few back pains high and low. I've some mild cramping and i'm not a cramper and i also have 7-9 day periods that never spot on and off and they are much heavier than what i've experienced. Not to mention my boyfriend constantly tells me he thinks i'm pregnant due to his fatigue and that gut feeling. I have not taken any tests as i have my normal yearly check up in a couple of weeks and was going to ride it out until then. My concern is also could this be an ectopic pregnancy??? Any input would be greatly appreciated.View Thread
