Is it true that severe low back pain but no bleeding is considered normal on early pregnancy?

Is it true that severe low back pain but no bleeding is considered normal on early pregnancy?

Also the baby's position can place stress on your spine resulting in bulging discs or even herniated disks causing the sciatica pain. Recommend seeing a pregnancy specialized therapist that can guide you through this. ...Read more

I have a fibroid and am experiencing low back pain & spotting in early pregnancy at 6 weeks - could the fibroid be the cause?

Should see doc ASAP: Although spotting is very common during early pregnancy, the associated back pain is concerning. If your fibroids normally cause you to have back pain with your period, this may also be so. But, if this is new, it is more concerning. I recommend getting checked out by your OB doc asap. Congrats on the pregnancy and good luck to you. ...Read more

No period 2 months, negative pregnacy tests, brown spotting for 1day, lower back pain, itchy breasts, Depo-Provera shot 6months 2"shotstotal" can I be prego?

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. 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. If negative see your doctor for irregular periods. ...Read more
