Q: 

Early pregnancy or ovarian cyst??

What does it mean if your ovaries hurt?

I stopped taking bcp three months ago and for the past 4-5 weeks have been having the following symptoms: breast enlargement/fullness, breast/nipple tenderness, increased discharge, flushed face, increased appetite, light occasional menstrual-like cramping (no bleeding), one-sided (right) occasional sharp twinges/pain & dull ache, bloating, slight weight gain.
I have taken two home-preg test, both with neg results. Approx six weeks ago, prior to all of these symptoms, I had one isolated instance of pinkish discharge (which may have been due to ovulation?). I am currently waiting it out for a few weeks until I go for a blood test at dr office. In the meantime, not knowing is driving me crazy!

Hi I'm 31 and have been experiencing very sore tinder breasts for 3 weeks figured it was pms which normally causes my breasts to ache a good 1 to 2 weeks before. For the last week and half have been experiencing slight cramps and some nausea on and off but still no bleeding. I am about 5 weeks into my cycle and have been feeling like my period should be starting for at least a week my periods are irregular but I took home pregnancy test Monday night and it was negative. Not sure if I should take another or if something else is going on.

My period in April was on for 9 days and followed by pain in my abd that radiated to my lower back So I was seen in the ER and was dx with ovarian cyst so I scheduled a appt with my - gyn & had my mirena iud removed on 4/28 due to the discomfort and had some light bleeding three days later could that have been my cyst rupturing ? Now I've been having symptoms of lower abd cramps, fuller breast and nausea I even had to sit down while grocery shopping because i felt extreamly dizzy I haven't felt like this since I was pregnant with my daughter . I have a follow up pelvic ultrasound next week to monitor the cyst I was dx with. Should i wait and test ? Or if I'm pregnant will it show on the ultra sound? Or could this all be more cyst?

Hello Anon

This bleeding could have been withdrawal bleeding from getting the Mirena out or it could have been the cyst rupturing but usually a woman would know it, it's often terribly painful.

If you haven't had a period since, you can test now. If it's negative, you might want to hold off on having unprotected sex until you get your cyst issues sorted out.

Hello Anon

Your hormones may be imbalanced causing spotting and cramping. See your doctor about this and also ask for a blood pregnancy test to rule pregnancy out.

Hello Anon
I assume you are having unprotected sex; if you are late you need to take a test.

I had my first child at age 18.. at 6 weeks after giving birth I starred to take the contraceptive injection which I took for approximately 2 years... and then I stopped my daughter is 6 years old now... so my boyfriend and I decided that we can try for another child... while I was taking the injection I didn't have any "mens" for the whole two years and after stopping I had irregular periods... my boyfriend and I have been trying from last year December to get pregnant and I felt hopeless... well my last period came on February 22 and lasted 6 days I have a period tracker that I downloaded on my phone which told me that I would be ovulating on April 11 and I had unprotected sex on the 9... on the day of ovulation I started to feel some period like cramps and my tummy felt like something was scraping on the walls I had a tiny amount of pinkish discharge which never continued..the cramps lasted for 2 days.. but now I'm bloated constipated loss of appetite my breasts have a pulling feeling inside and I can't sleep... the tracker says my period is due on the 25 of April could it be I'm pregnant? Help!!

Hello

A healthy couple under 35 should be successful in pregnancy within one year. One try can work for one child and another child can take many months to conceive.

Pregnancy is possible if you are having unprotected sex so if you don't get your period when expected, take a test.
Good luck!
