I am debating wether or not to go to the doctor. I have been to the fertility clinic in the beging of the year, they did a HSG test, MRI, and a lapascropy. All to find out that my uteres was displaced to the right during my last c-section and it bent my tubes, making concieving not so very easy with out invetro. Me and my husband have unprotected sex all the time. I got my period on August 18th 4 days early. It wasn't a regular period it last for 2 days and was extremly light. About a week after my period i was experiencing tenderness in my lower abdimen. Since then i've been getting on and off cramps, lower back pains, my breats are started with just my nipples being so and have graduated to soreness all over and they are very heavy. Plus i have been sleeping every day like i havn't slept in days, and i'm i suffer from insomnia. I was wandering if it is possible i did concieve and may be pregnant and how early can i test to see if i am pregnant.

Hey everyone- I really need some help, I am so so confused. My period is now over 3 months late,my last was on April 30th. I had sex with my boyfriend sometime in mid-may,then again about a week later- both times unprotected. I took 2 HPTs and they both came out negative, I then went to the doctors and both their blood tests and urine came out negative too! I honestly dont know what to think of whats wrong with me! ive put on abit of weight on my belly and butt,my boobs are heavier tender and fuller and now everynight when im at home im starting to feel faint little fluttery things just below my belly button- its not gas bubbles,as no gas comes out lol. ive also had really light brown spotting on the 7th of july- at first I wasnt stressing but now im thinking somethings seriously wrong with me! im only 18, surely if the blood tests and urine tests came out neg I couldnt be pregnant... could i??

HI all. My partner and I want a second baby, so we got a donor and did at home, do it yourself artificial insemination. This was at the beginning of May. Here we are in July, and still no period at all. I just got back from the doctor, but the blood test came back negative. I'm so utterly confused. My cycle has been seriously regular at five weeks, and now this. Has anyone personally had this type of situation happen to them and then found out if they were actually pregnant? I've found tons of forums about this, but they all just kinda stopped posting...
