Probably Not: You are probably just about to come on your period. If this does not happen, repeat the pregnancy test in 1week and you should be able to tell then if you are pregnant or not. If you have been sexually active without any protection, pregnancy is possible. ...Read more

Spotting: Spotting is one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

I'm 30 weeks pregnant & having severe cramping & back pain my ob says normal but its to painful its beyond normal my ob won't check problems what could it?

Many possibilities: There is lots of pain and discomforts that are mechanical in nature and "normal." while this could be the case, it would be reasonable to expect an evaluation including exam with cervical check, possible vagianl cultures, fetal fibronectin test (a test for preterm labor), and labs like a urinalysis and culture if indicated. An ultrasound is probably indicated also. ...Read more

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Get checked: It sounds like you have an infection. You need to get checked, especially since you have the Mirena (levonorgestrel) in place. The IUD does not increase your risk of getting an infection, but if you get one, it can be worse. The IUD does NOT need to be removed, but any infection should be treated aggressively. ...Read more

Pregnant?: All these symptoms point towards some disruption of your menstrual cycle and the most important one of these is pregnancy! this has to be evaluated and start with home kit which is very accurate. If your last menstrual period was feb 2nd (15/2) then due date for normal gestation would be nov 22. Your dates are confusing however as its february and not march... Please see a competent physician. ...Read more

Projectile vomiting in the morning, abdominal cramping, back pain, white substance in stool, light headedness, bbloating?

Projectile vomiting in the morning, abdominal cramping, back pain, white substance in stool, light headedness, bbloating?

Many things possible: First, you are not pregnant? Projectile vomiting usually indicates intestinal obstruction, but many other causes may do it. Is your stool clay colored over all? Or specks of white stuffs mixed in stools. Clay colored stool may indicate gallbladder or liver problem, and I am thinking that if you are not pregnant, you may have liver or gallbladder problems, but you need to see your doctor. ...Read more

37+4 weeks pregnant. Lost mucus plug today. Period like cramping & back pain. Also some leg discomfort. Last doc appoint 1cm dilated. Labor or not?

Early labor pains: It sure sounds like it may be early labor. But some women have bouts of pre-labor that come and go. Drinking water, taking a bath or walking will help figure out which way things will go. Either you';; get some more rest as things ease up or things will keep on and get more intense. Good luck! ...Read more
