Question: COULD I BE PREGNANT ?


 Melani - Wed Jun 02, 2004 3:35 am

I went off Melodene (oral contraceptive) in March and had my last period on 30th April 2004.
I am usually very regular (28-days), but this last period came in a
38-day cycle. I have not had a period yet for this month. Have I missed my period or is my cycle just irregular because of withdrawing from teh contraception ?

I've been experiencing the ffg symptoms since last week (24th May) :
1. I've been urinating quite frequently !!!!!!
2. I've also been feeling midly nauseous, yet with no vomiting
3. I've also been experience loose bowels, at the most inconvenient times !

Ever since Monday I have felt the nausea and loose bowel movement quite
severely, sporadically in the mornings and the afternoons. I am drinking water and eating peppermints (!!!!!!!!!) just to soothe myself

I did a pregnancy test on the 26th May, but it came up negative. I also
did one on 1st June with a negative result.

Is it too early to be testing ?
Could I be pregnant ?

User avatar Melani,
Please check our pregnancy test page
As you can see in the article it could be a bit early to rely on the home pregnancy kit during the first 5 weeks after the last menstrual period.
