Could I Have An Infection Or Pregnant

Misty - March 2

On Jan. 12, 2005 I miscarried. Now it is March 3, 2005. I haven't bled, not even a little since I miscarried. Now I feel fatigued all the time and if I eat the wrong thing I feel nauseated. I can't afford to go to the doctor unless I know that I need to because when I went the first time(when I was about to miscarry) it cost me over $3000.00. So now I want to know could I be pregnant again or are these signs of an infection? Any information would be helpfull.

Did you try the home-kit pregnancy test?

 

Misty - March 2

No, I didn't want to spend the money on it because I heard that after a miscarriage your HCG levels are still in your system so I thought it might come back positive from that when I'm really not.

Am I wrong to think that, would a home pregnancy test be accurate by now?

Misty, your hcg levels should be back to 0 by now. If they aren't, and a pregnancy test comes up positive, you are either pregnant again, or have residual stuff happening from the miscarriage. Either way, you should see a doctor and sort it out. I can't believe how much health care costs in America (if that's where you are). Does every checkup cost heaps, or was it because you had a procedure???

My d&e was on the 28th and my levels are almost 0 now. I have read some people go down to 0 after 2 weeks, so I'd def. take the test! Good Luck!

Yes, I am in America, but the main reason that it costs me so much is because I don't have health care. No I didn't have a procedure, they just checked me out to see if there was anything wrong that was causing me to bleed, or if this was just something that was happening. After what all I have heard on here though I think I probably should take the test. I'll let you all know. Thanks so much for responding.

If you're in America, how about planned parenthood. They work with you pricewise if you don't have insurance.

I never heard of planned parenthood. I can probably look that up on the internet though. Thanks for your help

Could it be posible that I have an infection though would that keep me from having a period

 

stacey - March 3

not saying it can't happen, but never heard of it. Might be that you still have soem fetal tissue in you, so your body still has some hcg in it. Where in America are you? If there isn't planned parenthood, there should be soem clinic like it there.

I'm in Florida, there might be a planned parenthood here, I'm not sure. And we do have clinics, but I thought you just went there when you had a cold or something. I didn't think they would have equipment there to see if I still have tissue in me or not. I feel so lost with what to do.

I found this on their site: plannedparenthood.com : Planned Parenthood of Alabama, Inc. Planned Parenthood of Collier County Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando, Inc. Planned Parenthood of Greater Miami and the Florida Keys, Inc. Planned Parenthood of North Central Florida, Inc. Planned Parenthood of Northeast Florida, Inc.

For medical questions, or to schedule an appointment with the nearest Planned Parenthood health center, call toll-free 1-800-230-PLAN or 1-800-230-7526.

Stacey, I can't believe you went soout of your way to help me when you don't even know me. Thank you. I called and there is a center about 20 minutes away from me. They will do a pregnancy test for me for $10. According to the lady that I talked to I probably got pregnant again because levels normally drop to 0 in 2-3 weeks. Hopefully if I am pregnant they can also do exams and things like that to monitor me through the pregnancy. I got pregnant so quickly after the miscarriage.It worries me. I'd hate to have another miscariage so soon. Wish me luck. I'll let you know what happened when I get back.Thank you sooo much for all of your help.
