Post subject: Am I pregnant
Hi I have been on the pill on/off for approx 15 years. Last month I didn't have a period at all, no symptons nothing. I did a home pregnancy test which came back negative so continued taking the pill. This month I had some slight spotting once and nothing since. Have done another pregnancy test and again it says negative. I haven't noticed any weight gain, infact last week I lost a couple of pounds and although I feel tired can't say I have noticed anything else. Went to doctors today and she has sent urine sample to hospital for pregnancy test. What you reckon?

hi bmx widow,
u probs are not pregnant because you have to have a period so u can release an egg to be fertilised which u have obvisouly not done as you havent had a period last month so i dont think u will be no.
would that be the same for me except last month (before this current missed period) i did have a preiod which came back with a vengance as the previous month (two months ago) i missed one completely?im so confussed now
hi bmx widow, just to say hope you get a result and the one your looking for...!!

im not to sure about how ur cycles work obviously i can tell there pretty irregular and sometimes u have a period and dont?
all i cna say is you need to have a period for an egg to be fertilised. but maybe u have longer cycles than you think and u arnt actually missing ur periods u just have long cycels?

I feel real bloated today and feel like I need to empty my bowells more. I don't know what to think - wasn't even planning a baby so this is all a big shock. Hopefully get my results tomorrow but if the test not back with the doc I will get another home test. The one I used before was a cheap one, and one of those dip tests - my friend is saying it might not be accurate - was a pack of 2 also so both tests came from same pack. I don't know what to think - driving me nuts! Wish I knew cos I'm gagging for a glass of wine lol!

Yeah but I've missed the last 2 periods and I don't think I've been stressed - well, no more than normal lol! Plus I'm on the pill! My doctor told me to continue taking it but I haven't, just incase. I had a headache 3 weeks ago that lasted for 10 days and now I'm reading that headaches are a symptom. Arrhhhh!
