I have been vomiting in the am before noon for about 3 weeks now, not everyday though. I usually become nauseous and then vomit once, and feel better afterwards. I also have headaches and have been feeling especially fatigued. About a week and a half to two weeks ago I spotted dark brown for about an hour every day for 3 days. I had a little bit of cramping during that time, but now the cramping is due to gas. I went to the doctor last week and they tested me for pregnancy and it came out negative. I am on birth control so I only have my period 4 times a year. The pregnancy test the doctor gave me was 4 days before I would have had my period. It is now 5 days after I would have had my period if I had not skipped it with my birth control plan, and I took an early response this morning and it came out negative. I have been on birth control since I was 15, and I skipped a pill a few weeks ago and my partner and I did not use a condom. After that I was about a pill behind for a week because I did not double up. I have no other flu like symptoms, no body aches, no fever or chills. I am just concerned that I am having false negatives, and I do not want to continue to take my birth control if I am. What is the next step I should take? Is there anything else I can do?
If I were you, I would go back to the doc! Could be stress related or maybe since you skipped a pill, it screwed it up. I would imagine that the odds of you being prego are pretty slim. If the test you took still says negative, you're probably not prego. I had something similar happen to me. (though my husband and I don't use protection) but I was really late on my period and I was convinced I was prego, stressing out about it, took a bunch of tests and eventually after a few more cycles worked itself out.
Now, I'm IMpatiently waiting to find out if I'm expecting! The wait is killing me!
Thanks! We did have unprotected sex the day I skipped a pill. I have also had lack of appetite as well and lower back pain. im just frustrated by the whole thing. I don't care what it is, i just want to find out whats wrong. my doc seemed to kind of brush the whole thing off and chalk it up to the stomach bug, but it doesnt feel like that type of sickness.
I wish I knew how! that's the first thing I would do! She's my primary care and I dont think I have the option to see someone else with my insurance. I would have to get a referral from her to see anyone else.
