Pregnancy (Definition)

Pregnancy unlikely: Pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more

Lower back pain and cramps I also am bloated could I be pregnant?

Lower back pain and cramps I also am bloated could I be pregnant?

Hard to guess, but: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Pregnancy Question?: Two periods in a month ? If you have had an actual period since your last sexual interaction then you are not pregnant. It you took the pregnancy tests approximately a month after the sexual contact and they were both negative - that should be reliable.There are many possible reasons for abdominal bloating. Take care. ...Read more

Misinformed?: Physicians never guess about pregnancy. Sore breasts alone do not represent pregnancy ever. If your next period does not start then it will be time for a pregnancy test. If you don't believe me then test today. ...Read more

Yes: it is very unlikely to get pregnant if the mirena (levonorgestrel) is in the right spot. it it moves around or falls out that is different but those are rare events. there is a very very small chance of pregnancy even with a properly functioning mirena (levonorgestrel) so it is at least worth while testing in case ...Read more

Unlikely: I suggest a pregnancy test but I doubt you are. Your hx sounds much more likely a GI problem and not pregnant. You have not said if you have had a period. If the pregnancy test is neg I would look for an explanation from the GI doctor. ...Read more
