High WBC in urine. Negative pregnancy test. Late period by 2 weeks. Diarrhea and cramps in lower left abdomen?

Not sure of your ?: Here's some general info. High WBC in urine may indicate a urinary tract infection or simply contamination from vaginal secretions. A urine culture can sort this out.

I have had diarrhea for the last four days. It started with severe abdominal pains and cramps. The abdominal pains subsided but the diarrhea has increased. I got hemorrhoids during pregnancy. One was an external hemorrhoid,but now I have like five inflame

Hemorrhoids are: commonly aggravated by both the straining and skin irritation from diarrhea. They will probably improve as your other symptoms improve. But, diarrhea worsening after 4 days is worthy of a doctor's visit to assess the cause and make sure you are well hydrated and have normal electrolyte balance. ...Read more

I've been having cramp like pains in my lower abdominal. Ihave had my tubes tied cut and burnt but I took a pregnancy test and it came out p+.

There is a: very low failure rate with tubal ligation. Was the test read at the correct time? If you read it after allowing it to sit out for a while then an evaporation line can sometimes be read as a + & the material will become more concentrated. Consider repeating a home pregnancy test or getting a blood pregnancy test from your doctor. Take care. ...Read more

I had early symptoms of pregnancy at 6 dpo. Metallic taste in mouth, tugging and pulling in my lower abdomen, and mild cramps, but now don't have any?

I had early symptoms of pregnancy at 6 dpo. Metallic taste in mouth, tugging and pulling in my lower abdomen, and mild cramps, but now don't have any?

Pregnancy Symptoms: It would be impossible for your body to know if you were pregnant that early. The fertilized egg is in no way connected to the body for many days post impregnation. The fertilized egg has to travel from the pelvis through the fallopian tubes. It then has to land on and implant on the wall of the uterus. And then it has to grow to a big enough size to have enough cells to be leaking the HCG hormone. ...Read more

Today is 12dpiui....i noticed tiny yellow cm..i also have cramps in my leg and lower abdomen..bbs are sore...can this be a sign of pregnancy?

Not necessarily: I don't know what you mean by "tiny yellow cm" but leg cramps are not a sign of pregnancy. Lower abdominal cramps are premenstrual signs or possibly very early miscarriage. Sore breasts can be either premenstrual hormone changes or pregnancy hormone changes. If you are pregnant, a pregnancy test might be positive by now. ...Read more
