Flu Season: First 'diarrhea and nausea' are in no way signs of pregnancy. It is the flu season, so i would chalk this up to that. Second, if you were sexual during your ovulation and you are missing a period we no longer just sit and wonder, we go get a pregnancy test. These are readily available everywhere, even in pennsylvania. ...Read more

No: Many things cause constipation. Stress is one. Get lots of rest, drink lots of water, eat fruit and if needed get miralax. It is safe and effective over several days. Stomach flu makes you feel sick. If you are feeling well stool color is not important unless you see blood. That requires immediate investigation. You may need stress management if you can't manage on your own. Read up on it. ...Read more
