Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

I have a linea nigra but not pregnant is there a connection between the linea nigra and adrenal fatigue which I belive I have?
Just to clarify: Hi. Just to clarify, there is no such thing as "adrenal fatigue". It's a made-up condition in the homeopathic community for which there is no scientific or clinical validity.

Is it possible to have linea nigra w/o being pregnant? Lmp 10/28/12 no sex since 9/2 even w/ that took a planb. So what's the deal?
Could be hormonal: A linea nigra (literally "black line") can run either upward or downward (or both) from the belly button. Do you take birth control pills? They raise your hormone levels, like pregnancy does, and can cause linea nigra. If not, you could be secreting abnormal levels of hormones from your adrenal gland (or elsewhere), and you should see your doctor for lab tests. ...Read more
A week ago I woke up and saw I had a linea nigra. Not pregnant and never have been. I'm 30/F. Internet says either pregnant or hormonal imbalance but do they ever show up and nothings wrong?
Yes. Rarely.: You don't mention where you saw the iinea nigra.. If the skin darkening isn't in the middle of your lower abdomen, it's technically not "lina nigra" Linea nigra is caused by an increase in melanocyte-stimulating hormone. Pregnancy and oral contraceptives are common causes. If you aren't pregnant & not on OCP's, you should see a doctor to be checked for a hormonal problem. ...Read more

I did a second test and it still says weakly positive i did a scan but the DR said there is no pregnancy but there is syst, can syst be wy it shos pst?
Pregnancy Test: If you are newly pregnant, a scan would not show a intrauterine pregnancy, as it would be way too early. The cyst could be what's called a corpus luteum cyst, which is what sustains a pregnancy until the placenta is formed. The best time to scan for confirmation of a pregnancy is 5-6 weeks, and viability at 8-10 weeks. ...Read more
