Comment from: just me, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: May 29

I'm not sure if I'm pregnant it is too early to tell. I started my period. I had sex May 1st and I started period on May 3rd. I got off on May 9th. I had sex on the May 10. Then I got a UTI and started to bleed heavily like I was on my period. I have been on antibiotics, but as of May 19th my breast started to swell up and they are so sensitive to the touch. I have some cramping like I'm going to start my period again, but it's not time for it to come, normally my breast swell some about 3 days before my period. So I'm not sure if it is just me getting my period early with the whole UTI? I forgot what it felt like since my daughter is 12yrs old.

I have been on the Depo shot for about a year now and lately I have been experiencing a high body temperature and constant headaches and I have had some bleeding about 2 droplets yesterday and spotted 4 days ago. I have been feeling sick to my stomach and overly sensitive to almost anything and my areolas are huge, so my guess is I am and I find out Monday.

I'm 19 years old with abdominal pains, slight sensitivity in the breast area but more so. I noticed when I was laying down and my kittens were climbing on me and stepped on that area. One night I could only sleep on one side because every other sleep position hurt my tummy/crotch area. Once at 1:30am I almost puked and another time I felt nauseous for an hour. It's only been 6 weeks. I took two tests after I noticed that my period should've happened by now, especially since I kept feeling the painful cramps. I kept thinking I'm either pregnant, or dying, so I took the test. It was weird because suddenly one day I couldn't smoke cigarettes anymore, the smell became gross and the taste. Before I was a heavy smoker (a pack every 2 to 3 days) and yet I am not addicted, I have no cravings for cigarettes. I also used to drink booze (not a lot but at least 2 nights out of a week) then one night I tried to drink a beer and it suddenly doesn't taste good to me anymore. Another time I went to a barbeque and got another can of beer to drink, this time a better brand and I could only drink 1/3 of it. I'm just not interested in booze anymore. I also used to smoke marijuana every night then I realized after a month I might be pregnant, so I stopped afraid that it might affect the child negatively. The only thing that bothers me is that the father is a crack addict and I was a pothead. So hopefully I will go thru all three trimesters and the child will be unaffected.

I am not sure if it really was an ectopic pregnancy. After missing my period for the past six weeks I did a home pregnancy test. I did not go right away to the doctor. When it was almost 7 weeks, I started to bleed. I went to the gynecologist, who did a pregnancy test and confirmed the pregnancy. However, when she did the ultrasound it didn't show any fetus. I continued bleeding for six days. It was like my period. After, I did another pregnancy test, it came out negative. Was this or could this be an ectopic pregnancy? I'm confused.
