Question: Light period and upset stomach

 Floofycows - Sun Dec 09, 2007 2:46 am

25, female.

I am 11 months post-partum with my child, and am not on birth control. My child was concived with fertility help, due to an issue with my husband.

I have had an upset stomach for about a week, nasuea, and a weird "hole in my tummy" feeling. My period, while here is VERY light. I took an HPT, twice, and it is negative. I otherwise feel fine, no fatiuge, moodieness, aching breasts, nothing I felt with my child.

Is there anything other than pregnancy that can cause this?

User avatar Hello,
Since the abdomen contains so many organs, there are many possible causes for your symptoms. It could be something with your stomach -acid, ulcer, gastritis, etc. Or it could be intestinal - IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), blockage, gas entrapment, constipation or other intestinal problems. It could also be gall bladder problems, urinary infection (bladder irritability), pancreatitis, appendicitis, and many more possibilities aside from pregnancy.

I'm afraid you will need to either wait it out to see if it passes or see a health care provider for an exam - the only way to get a more definitive diagnosis.

Best wishes.
