hi i m 29, married 4 little more thn 5yrs....i m hypothyroid patient but rest of my medical conditions r OK..besides i m a parent of 3.6yr old baby girl & afterwards i hd 2 consecutive missed abortions within a yr(June'09 &March'10) due 2 lack of cardiac flicker in early pregnancies ... recently(in the 2nd-3rd wks of Sep.'10) i survived thru a deadly viral fever (dengue fever)... Now i m facing a strange sort of problem .... as my periods were due on 3rd Oct'10 but they came on 12th-19th of this month thtz not so unusual (as i hv a prolonged cycle of 30-40days since the beginning) but the problem is tht now i m facing little enlarged belly with serious stiffness & sometimes mild cramps in the lower & left sides of it (especially around the belly button) as well as i m feeling my lower body is getting heavier gradually & unusual increment in my food carving tht resulting in gradual increase of my body weight as a whole too (just like the symptoms of early pregnancy)... As my mother already hv a history of having a pregnancy with regular menses till the 5months of her pregnancy thatz y i was pretty curious abt this increasing belly size & stiffness etc. of mine... therefore i immediately rushed out 2 hv a blood test 4 pregnancy confirmation (serum beta HCG) which turned out 2 be "negative" 2day... it hs been more thn 2 wks now(coz the stiffness started prior 2 this month's menses) but still there is no difference in my gradually increasing abdominal size ,stiffness & mild cramps etc hence i m VERY WORRIED abt my current condition... can any one help me wht 2 do now? (lemme clarify one thing here... usually we use the traditional withdrawal method 4 birth control & still we r very strictly doing it, no xceptions @ all)...
shd i consider my self pregnant? or whts the complication behind all this condition?

Treatment of acute dengue is supportive, using either oral or intravenous rehydration for mild or moderate disease, and intravenous fluids and blood transfusion for more severe cases. The number of cases of dengue fever has increased dramatically since the 1960s, with between 50 and 528 million people infected yearly.

Hi snq,
Thanks for your question and for being a part of the EmpowHER community.
I think given your health history, you may want to get in to discuss these issues with your doctor. Even if it's just for your own piece of mind. They will be your best resource to help you advocate for yourself since they are familiar with your medical history and can advise you fully.
Good luck and let us know how what your doctor says. Your experience may be able to help someone else.
