On October 29th I had had unprotected sex, although 114 hours later I took the ellaone pill (95% effective) and started my period that day, which was just as heavy as all my other periods and just as painful.. then on November 13th I had sex with a condom but was unaware that genital rubbing can cause a pregnancy (without ejaculation) but my doctor told me this was highly unlikely. 2 days later I got my nexplanom inserted, and had my "period" on the 30th of November and it lasted 12 days and was lighter than my usual periods and then got another period on the 3rd of January which lasted 11 days and was also lighter but enough to cover 2-3 panty liners a day, although my doctor told me this was normal on this form of birth control. I did not have sex untill 18 days after I got nexplanon inserted. Now, after reading through forums and googling upon googling I have got myself into a bit of a scare.. apparently some women can have a normal period throughout pregnancy and not know they're pregnant?! I did not have tender breasts or morning sickness although now about 12 weeks later I have heart burn(side effect of nexplanon) and I have taken 5 hpt that have all been negative but I seen on a forum that sometimes the tests won't work this late in pregnancy and can give a false negative result? Surely the result would be positive if I was for that long? Is my worry irrational?
With all your periods, contraception, lack of symptoms and the negative tests I think it's pretty safe to say you're not pregnant. If you are still worried ask your GP to perform blood tests to check your HCG level, although they may be reluctant to do it based on what you have said.
No, you're not pregnant. I think you should probably speak to your doctor about your anxiety though as it sounds like you've convinced yourself despite having absolutely no reason to point towards a pregnancy. X
Thankyou, I'm in my teens and I've realised I'm not emotionally ready for all the worry, my mum has taken me to the doctor already and reasurred me too many times to count that I'm not pregnant, but the thought never seems to leave my head? It won't go away and I'm not sure if it's to do with my mental health.
I'm also worried I'll somehow find out 24 weeks along or over, and not have the option to terminate if I feel that is the best option, that thought never seems to leave my head, even though pregnancy is not a possibility right now
Hi can anyone help? I'm don't know what to do, I think I could be pregnant 😳 On the 28th Dec I had my Jaydess coil removed, then came on my period. I've had unprotected sex a few times since having it removed and the past week I've been feeling really sick but notactually been sick till last night and I've had really bad head aches on and off, I've also not been able to sleep and when I do I don't want to wake up! And I woke up with morning to my nipples being really sore like to even touch at all and my outer nipple (the circle bit) is getting darker ? What should I do? Thanks for reading
Without sounding patronising I think despite all the reassurances you have from your mum, the doctors and people of MN if you can't cope with the thought of pregnancy, or shake it from your head, you should probably avoid sex/sexual activities until you are in a better mental mind frame. X
Notamum, you are not pregnant, try to stop worrying. Even if you were, you would know well before 24 weeks and the symptoms at that stage are very distinctive - sore gums, groin pain, big belly, feeling kicks, out of breath, peeing yourself when you sneeze, leaking colostrum etc.
Notamum12 - that's really good your boyfriend is been supportive and you have an open enough relationship to discuss this as PP has said maybe speak to your doctor again either with your mum or boyfriend with you for support to see if there is anything they can do to help with your anxiety and it sounds silly but the doctor can have a proper chat with you about reproduction how is does/doesn't work and all the contraception methods available with you so that when you feel able to start been active again with your partner hopefully any grey areas will have been covered by a professional - would more than likely be a more accurate and in depth conversation than the 'birds and the bees' you get from embarrassed parents or whispers from your friends.
Moody - you can buy sensitive home pregnancy kits that you can use between 4 and 6 days before your period is due depending on the brand, however personally I have always waited until after my period is due, first response tests are usually the most reliable x
I am very aware of how conception occurs and when ovulation is likely to occur and what poses risks and what does not, it's just the "what ifs" in the back of my head convincing me that I could be, it's very silly I know but I'm feeling much better now
