Have a look at the link I left on your other thread, it lists the symptoms there.

thankyou, i found that. i think i need to chat to my gp again. could be stress related i suppose, just that i know i could have got pregnant but tests are negative and having funny symptons. ive felt like ive been expecting my period for over two weeks...sore boobs and usual feelings but have had nausea and now this 'enlarged ovary' thing the clinic lady mentioned. as i say could be stress as also lost my job yesterday due to 2many doc apps and throwing up in staff toilet at work!

I hope you're OK, kitty, but do just go to casualty if you're worried, and it would be definitely worth going back to your GP about the enlarged ovary. The clinic people sound incredibly offhand. Take care.

I dont like to waste peoples time as i always panic about 'health' things. sometimes im right, sometimes im wrong but it makes sense to be concerned.yesterday evening i couldnt get warm yet my mum who got me a hot water bottle said the room was very warm. I thought i started my p this morn but just slight blood and that was is , now (without sounding disgusting) just watery blood...again that stopped. I think i'll chat 2 my mum but i think my dad is beginning to wonder whats wrong. Again 2day predictor test neg. Just dont what is going on!

Why not try calling NHS Direct? I know they can be pretty useless at times but they might have an idea.

Was all okay?

My first pregnancy ended with an ectopic. I didn't have the sharp pain most feel but started bleeding. I had found out I was pregnant on the Thursday, started bleeding on the Friday and by Tuesday was no longer a mum-to-be. Despite loosing a tube as it had already burst I have since had healthy twin boys, now toddlers, without any IVF or anything.

One thing Kitty, always get it checked. They are pretty prompt when it is possibly an ectopic. As soon as the blood test came back and they realised it wasn't a miscarriage I was literally ordered into hospital.
