Hello, I have been having some strange things going on lately. I have been on tri cyclen lo birth control pills for about 2 years now, but this month ive noticed that my lower abdomen is very hard to the touch when i am standing or sitting down-- not so noticeable when im laying down on my back. My period is expected tomorrow, but this is just eating away at me ! sorry for the but Ive also had some brownish-red discharge yesterday and the day before, but it has seemed to have stopped now. I was recently diagnosed about 4 months ago with IBS and I was wondering if I could be pregnant or could it be the IBS acting wonky? I would also like to add that besides the pill I am having unprotected sex. Any answers or opinions would be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you !

Sounds like probably PMS Symptoms and the brownish/red discharge could have been pre-Af spotting? Could swing either way though..I hope it turns out the way you want!

Thank you for your input ! It doesnt make sense to me why my stomach would be hard to the touch, though. Thats never happened before. If i dont end up getting my period ill take a hpt tomorrow, and if i do get it and the bloating stays ill go see my doctor . Ill let everyone know how it goes ! Thank you again

Its been awhile, guys. Sorry. I ended up getting my period on december 11th and it seemed normal . I went to my doctor and he advised a colonoscopy (to see if i have chrones or ulcerative colitis). But hasnt kept in contact yet ... My lower abdomen is STILL hard. Its been literally almost a month and the bloating and hard stomach has not gone away one bit. So, im not sure about pregnancy but im still very annoyed with this process. I was also wondering something else , has anyone been diagnosed with PCOS? And what were your symptoms ?? Because it runs in my family and im wonderi maybe if that is an options. thanks again everyone!

I'm TTC with Crohn's disease (I was diagnosed in '07), I'm here for you if you have any questions! Hope your colonoscopy shows nothing serious!
