Swelling may be bad: Retained air in the gut can certainly lead to bloating. However, a "hard" abdomen raises greater concern, such as fluid (ascites) in your abdomen or intestinal blockage. Ascites can be due to significant liver disease, infection, perforation of the gut, trauma to an organ with bleeding, or even cancer. Intestinal blockage, if present, risks rupture, peritonitis, death. Please get evaluated now. ...Read more

My lower left abdomen feels bruised. Is this a symptom of early pregnancy? Also I usually have 7 day periods. Then suddenly had a 2 day one.

My adivse is to: Get a home pregnancy test and go from there.

If you are pregnant, it's important ot have support people in place. Best to you and be well! ...Read more

"Any: "any woman between 8 and 80 with abdominal pain is pregnant until proven otherwise! " that is drilled into us in training. Have you taken any home pregnancy tests? When was your last menstrual period?

Assuming, after a year of symptoms, that you are not pregnant, there can be any number of things going on. We call symptoms like these "constitutional symptoms." they can be vague and it can be difficult to find a cause. Are you losing weight despite eating more? If so, you need to look into this thoroughly and soon. Fevers and night sweats are also concerning.

You need to find a good primary care physician to do some thoughtful investigation. Be patient, as it may take months before they pin down a diagnosis. ...Read more

If you feel a lil tender in your lower abdomen an lower back hurts an I've been having irregular periods since unpro. Sex could I be pregnant?

Can check preg. Test: 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 (when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An ob-gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

My wife is 30 days late with her period and has taken a test which came out negative, she however has a slight pain in her stomach. Coukd she be pregnan?

Delayed menses: If your wife has a history of regular cycles, being "30 days late" at approximately your age (?) with a pain in her lower abdomen (stomach?) may indicate a pregnancy in an abnormal location, which would not be detected by a normal pregnancy test. Get a serum HCG test which is very accurate even with displaced locations of pregnancy. ...Read more

My last period was 10/15 I haven't had a period this month but all of a sudden my back hurts, I have headaches, and my stomach is tight! Am I pregnan?

Dysmenorrhea vs preg: You could be close to your next period and your symptoms may be part of the premenstrual symptoms. Wait a few/several more days- you may have your period started. Sometimes, depending on your pattern, period can be a bit earlier or a few days delayed-and is still normal. But if you are worried about getting pregnant- buy the pregnancy kit and check it if you still don't have period over the expected. ...Read more

Had sex four days after my period my period last 7 days the condom broke nd I have been having mild cramping in my lower abdomen could I be pregnan?

Unlikely: If I am interpreting your question correctly, the condom broke about day 11 of your menstrual cycle. Assuming you have an approximate 28 day cycle, you would not be expected to ovulate by then. Cramping likely not due to pregnancy. Take some naproxen or ibuprofen for a couple of days. I expect your period on time; if not, do pregnancy test a week later. Good wishes:) ...Read more
