Im having all the signs to an early pregnancy but, i took five tests and one out of the five said yes. I was supposed to go and get my birth control shot (the depo) sept. 5-19, and im having all signs to and early pregnancy, im having very bad stomach pai

Unfortunately : Unfortunately we are not allowed to send personal emails. I hope this answer finds you. If you missed depo, then you are at risk of becoming pregnant. The fact that you have had 4/5 negative pregnancy tests leans more toward the negative. The positive result could have been a false reading. However, the only way to get a definitive answer is to ask your doctor for a serum (blood) pregnancy test. In addition this would be a good time to inform him/her of your current symptoms. There are other causes besides pregnancy that can cause these things. All the best to you. ...Read more

Can my birth control (loseasonique) effect the color/shape of my nipples? I know this is usuallly an early sign of pregnancy, but i always use protection and have very recently had my period.

Unprotected sex feb 13 & 20. Some early signs of pregnancy but still very vague. Missed period, I am in birth control. ?

Pregnancy worries?: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If having sex, one must be prepared for that rare surprise baby. ...Read more

Im a week late and have symptoms of early pregnancy when would be the best time to take a pregnancy test and should I continue taking my birth control

Im a week late and have symptoms of early pregnancy when would be the best time to take a pregnancy test and should I continue taking my birth control

Take it now,,,: This would be a very good time to take it, as no period is likely pregnancy until proven otherwise. If it is positive, it would be wise to stop your birth control so it cannot interfere with the pregnancy. If it turns out to be negative, it would be wise to see your doctor to repeat the test as you still could be pregnant, and get an exam in case there is another reason for the late period. ...Read more
