I've been having on and off pain for 8mts plus in my upper left corner, it radiates partly in the upper middle as well. Should I make a ER visit?

Abdominal pain : 8 months of pain deserves a little more respect. Please do go to ER if you have no primary care provider. A CT scan might be revealing. Pancreatitis can be another possibility. Also get pancreatic enzymes, lipase and amylase. Did you have any traumatic experience such as car accident? Spleen is a important organ in upper left abdomen. ...Read more

Hello, not sure when i conceived, but after an ER visit, my hCG was 318 on jan5th then 1033 on jan7th. About how far along am i?

Approx 10 weeks: If your level was around 1000 on jan 7th, then at that point you were about 5 weeks along (and this is an approximation). Looking at a calendar, i'd say you're about 10 weeks now (feb 12). Remember, the convention is "menstrual weeks", assuming a 28 day cycle.

Signs?: It's fairly rare (1/1,000) and usually w/ a new insertion. In any case, I'd hope the doctor could make a special appt if there is cause. Urge them politely but firmly. Warning signs include severe abdominal pain, heavy or abnormal bleeding, and a smelly vaginal discharge. Also, many ERs do offer help w/ bill if you need it lowered. Ask about it. It can lower anxiety for future possible needs.Best! ...Read more
