Left abdomen pain and a little bleeding. Is it my period? Am i pregnant? Or is it something totally different?

Possibly: Pregnancy is a posibility. Purchase and perform a home pregnancy test. It should turn positive by the time you're a week late. If it's negative, repeat it in 1 week. ...Read more

Belly Pain (Definition)

Belly pain is also known as Abdominal pain. Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly. Almost everyone experiences pain in the abdomen at one time or another. Most of the time, it is not caused by a serious medical problem. There are many organs in the abdomen. Pain in the abdomen can originate from any one of them, including: Organs related to digestion -- the end of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas The aorta -- a large blood vessel that runs straight down the inside of the abdomen The appendix -- an organ in the lower right abdomen that no longer serves much function The kidneys -- two bean-shaped organs that lie deep within the abdominal cavity The spleen -- an organ involved in blood maintenance and infection control However, the pain may start from somewhere else -- like your chest or pelvic area. You may also have a generalized infection, such as the flu or strep throat, that affects many parts of your body. The intensity of the pain does not always reflect the seriousness of the condition causing the pain. Severe abdominal pain can be from mild conditions, such as gas or the cramping of viral gastroenteritis.

Even if you aren't pregnant, certain tests need to be done to evaluate the cause of your irregular cycles. Pregnancy is always ruled out but often blood work, an ultrasound and biopsy may need to be done. Your risk of abnormal cells developing in your uterus is increased with irregular cycles. ...Read more

Lower abdominal pain on left side and natious took 3 hpt and one blood test both came back negative is there a chance im still pregnant?

Lower abdominal pain on left side and natious took 3 hpt and one blood test both came back negative is there a chance im still pregnant?

Not likely: Sorry, but if the blood test is negative, it is highly unlikely, unless you are the victim of a mix-up at the lab, that you are pregnant. It sounds like all of the tests have agreed that you are not pregnant, so a lab mistake even more unlikely. You should find out why you are having lower abdominal pain and nausea as some causes can be serious. Please go to your doctor and get this looked into. ...Read more
