I started feeling stomach cramps like when you have a bad stomach ache three days ago. they got really intense the second day, so bad I went to doc for pain meds. she ruled out appendicitis and gave me ibuprofen for the pain. I took one that evening and by that night it was back to being bad again. I woke up today, day three, and felt perfectly fine all morning. by the afternoon my stomach hurt again. I didn't bleed at all. originally, I thought I was starting my period again. I expected to be bleeding heavily by the end of day two. I felt nausea and dizziness, and a more intense pain on the right side, which I thought might be a cyst ready to pop. I do have sex, but not often, and he never ejaculates in me. if he does, it's always in a condom, and sometimes he doesn't even finish. he has slipped inside a couple times for a short duration in-between putting on the next condom. could I be pregnant, or is this just ovulation pain?

I started on a new birth control (NuvaRing) in April, when I took it out the beginning of May, I waited the typical 3 days for my period and nothing. I read that sometimes women took 5 days, so, I waited until 5 days had passed. Nothing. Finally, 4 days late (9 days after removing NuvaRing) I started my period. I had a slow flow as normal but then on day 2 when I should have been gushing, I had nothing. Day 3 it picked back up and day 4 also. By day 5, I'm usually off by day 4 or getting off, I was spotting, this was normal. I spotted for a few more days. My periods are never this long or this late. With birth control, I'm either right on the money or a day early. Without birth control, I'm 2 days early or more. I am now just under 2 weeks out for my next period and a few days ago I started getting such indigestion that it felt like it was burning even between my ears! I have been having small cramps, bloating, and lower back and side pains as well as nausea. The past 2 days I can't wear loose boxers or anything on my belly. I'm pulling everything up like Erkle to avoid hurting my belly. I did not insert a new NuvaRing because my insurance dropped me suddenly and I cannot afford a new one. Is my period coming early or is it possible that it's because I'm not putting another Ring in?

Hi I really need some feed back I got my period 2weeks late in January it was suppose to come the 9th and it came the last week in Jan. But in Feb. I didn't get it at all I was suppose to get it the 23rd of Feb. it is now the 13th of march and I'm feeling pressure in my abdomen but sense the month of Feb is short I'm thinking it might just be coming late again like in Jan I took four test and they all were negative and it end up coming but the differences this time is me and my husband had a slip up with the pull out method right after my last period please tell me what you think

I am literally terrified that I might be pregnant. I can't take birth control pill because of blood clots so I used a condom and he pulled out, it was the day after my period ended. Lately my periods are almost exactly a month apart, and my next one isn't due for another week and a half. But I've had an uncomfortable feeling in my lower abdomen for the past few days, and today it started cramping. It felt like the cramps I usually get during my period, and I thought maybe I got my period super early...but no blood just cramping. I've had no other early pregnancy signs...not even headaches or soar breasts. I literally cannot be pregnant I'm only 20 and at school, but I took every precaution I could without risking getting sick aside from not having sex (which at this point doesn't seem so shabby compared to the alternant) IUsed a condom, he pulled out, I made sure I wasn't anywhere near ovulation... Could I just have the worst luck in the world and be that .001% that they warn you about on the condom boxes??

I think I am pregnant, but at the same time I think I'm not. Because i don't have any symptoms. My period should start now based on 28 days cycle. I became irregular this past few months because of inject-able contraceptives. But last month I had my period on the 3rd week of October. My husband and I had sex 1 day after the last day of my period. He used withdrawal method, and I believe it is effective for us, cause we've used this a lot before. And ten we had sex 11 days after the last day of my period. Is there a possibilities I maybe pregnant. (We are not trying to be pregnant.) 2 Weeks before I had cramps and ache on my lower back. Please help me.

Hi I'm just wondering if you could help me, I came off the injection and went onto the pill had my week break had a normal bleed but didn't start my pill again as we're ttc, but I have an ovulation calendar and we had unprotected sex twice before ovulation day and once on ovulation day which was last Thursday 3rd of November, n since then I've had signs that I'm coming on but not due until the 22nd? I get twinges in my belly like butterflies, cramps in my my lower abdomen which I never get, lower back ache, acne which I've never suffered with, feeling sick n dizzy without being sick, the only thing I haven't had is sore breasts, I have taken a test which I knew would be negative cus it was too early, could I be pregnant?
