Missed period severe stomach cramps and diareahhea
An_251673 posted:
I am a 23 yo on Nuvaring for birth control for the past 7 years. I have regular periods, never late and they are always the same. Each month I have heavy periods. I have had a history of UTIs which would turn ugly and turn into a kidney infection. For the past 3 months I have had SEVERE stomach cramping, along with vomiting several times a day. My period 2 months ago was light (first time that ever happened) and this month I am over a week late (I am always ontime - using Nuvaring). I have taken 2 pregnancy tests and both are negative.
I do not have health insurance right now and can't afford to go to a Dr. Does anyone have any suggestions? Help with what could be wrong, or help with guidance to where I can go for health assistance?
