Had tubes cut tied burt and feeling flutter going on 2nd month no peroid what going on help doc said wouldn't get pregnant again so please help so I know what to do

Even: Even though there is a 1% chance of pregnancy after having your tubes tied, there are more likely causes depending on your age and other symptoms. Even if you were pregnant, most women do not feel any fetal movement until they are 4-5 months pregnant, so the "flutter" you feel is likely something else. Reasons for a missed period besides pregnancy are stress, poor diet, extreme exercise, weight loss, hormone imbalance such as with thyroid disorders or polycystic ovarian syndrome and even peri-menopause if you are older. You should take a pregnancy test just to be certain you are not pregnant. If you are still not sure why your period has become irregular, you should give your ob/gyn doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more

I have stopped the mini pill and now on a period but feeling flutters in my belly but all 5 pregnancy test say negative please help what's the flutter?

Likely intestinal: That can be tough. It is likely your intestines. Some people feel and notice more from physical sensations than others; if stress level is high, not sleeping well, etc, one notices normal stimuli and registers it as abnormal. Not saying this is your situation; try MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) to be more regular but these sensations are not unusual. ...Read more

Once a month I get a feeling of flutter in stomach and fullness in vagina, not pregnant, 7 months pp c section, irregular bleeding as breast feeding?

Once a month I get a feeling of flutter in stomach and fullness in vagina, not pregnant, 7 months pp c section, irregular bleeding as breast feeding?

Not sure: Fluttering is usually either intestinal movements or a baby moving. If you are sure you're not preg.. . I'm thinking it's your bowels. The fact that it's once a month is confusing, esp if you're not ovulating regularly. But ovulation can cause a feeling of fullness. Your vagina may feel different while breast feeding due to lack of estrogen. I would give it time, see what happens after weaning. ...Read more

Is feeling a few flutters in chest during exercise (rarely) common in young, healthy people. My doc is not concerned. Am I the only one?

Is feeling a few flutters in chest during exercise (rarely) common in young, healthy people. My doc is not concerned. Am I the only one?

Probably fine!: Your heart beats about 100, 000 times a day, so occasionally some of the beats may feel a little bit different. Avoiding caffeine, stress and any kind of stimulants can help. If you notice chest pain, dizziness, shortness of breath, or prolonged symptoms this can be more serious and should be rechecked. The only thing about your flutters is the exertional component, so do monitor it for the above. ...Read more
