Hi everybody! I'm new here and decided to ask you nice ladies for some advice.
Here's my situation:
I am a 36 year old mother of two young boys. Back on June 28 I had a Laparoscopy and a D&C for heavy bleeding. I started my last period on July 9. My menstural cycles are about 26 days. My husband and I "fooled around" ( with no protection) on July 17 which is about when I should have been ovulating ( at least sometime during that week ). I should have started my period on this past Wednesday. I took a HPT yesterday that was neg. and another one today that was neg. The one I did today developed a faint positive line after two hours of sitting there. I know the test is not accurate after 10 minutes, but I just kept looking at it. Anyway, I have all the usual symptoms of pregnancy and pms. So, which is it? My breasts are sore, I have had mild cramps for about a week and a half which I usually don't get that long before my period. I usually get the cramps one or two days before my period, and I am having terrible mood swings (getting very nasty!), and I feel really tired. I almost "feel" pregnant, but the tests have been neg. What do you guys think? Please lend me some advice-I would really appreciate it! Thanks for reading!
It could be that the D&C is what is screwing up your cycle. I would wait a week or so and if you still don't get your period then test again. If it is still negative at that point and no period you may want to go to the Dr. and have a blood test done...it is more accurate the a home preg test.
