Hi All, I'm new here and am hoping someone can answer my question. Am I pregnant? I had a miscarriage / D&C on March 16, 2012. I had my first period (about 1 month later) on April 19, 2012. I took a pregnancy test today and it shows a positive result! I'm a bit paranoid from my last experience. Is it possible for me to still of the HCG levels in my system from my last pregnancy or am I pregnant??? Thanks for your help!!!!

Hello, I am wondering if I am pregnant. All my friends and family say that I am, but my symptoms also bring up ovarian cancer when I search it online. This is making me very nervous. Let me know what you all think. This is my third month on orthro tri cyclen lo, but my last period was Feb 28th 2012, I am about to miss my next one tomorrow. I am not trying to get pregnant hints the birth control, my boyfriend and I have unprotected sex and he ejaculates inside me almost everyday. I have nausea, insomnia, my breast and stomach are warm to touch, I have a little back pain, and bloating that comes and goes, I do not want to eat. I took a HPT two days ago, it was negative, I do not have a primary physician or insurance, my only options are to get blood work done for 50 dollars, that I do not have or go to the emergency and if I am not pregnant, end up with a huge hospital bill. I have never felt like this before, I am nervous and do not know what to do.

I'm 24 and my husband and I have decided we were going to try for a baby after my next period. We had unprotected sex the day before my expected peiod thinking it wouldn't matter (just practise he calls it LOL). It wasnt till I didnt get my period that I realised I miss calculated on my calendar and found out my period wasnt actually due till the following week! (whoops LOL) and now Im 2 days past my due period. I have been getting slight cramps like I would normally before getting my period, but still no period. I took a test yesterday, and it was negagtive. I know we didnt have sex in my ovulation time, but could it still be possible? Should i wait another week to test again???
