Hi i had been having symptoms of pregnancy 3 weeks ago, I took a test and it was negative. Just 4 days ago i started cramping really bad and i went to check and i was bleeding and i figured i just started my period. As the pain kept getting worse i started notecing i was passing very dark thick blood clots. As soon as my period came my nipples that were hurting before are not hurting now, but i do still have nause and have also developed diarrhea, headaches, gas, and sometime fever if pain gets really bad. I have a history of not getting my period for months at a time, and was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. What could i have? Did i miscarrie even thought pregnancy test was negative? I have been trying to get pregnant for 3 years now and am not taking any medication for my thyroid. I hope all that info will help you help me. What can i do about this very painful cramping?

Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   let me read
Doctor :   you can take otc pain relief medications like ibuprofen 400 mg twice a day for the cramping
Doctor :   pain
Doctor :   get the thyroid status checked
Doctor :   it may cause infertility if the thyroid status is not normal
User :   i am currently taking Midol twice a day.
Doctor :   whether it is a miscarriage or not it is difficult to say but you can check for the blood pregnancy hormones
Doctor :   if they are elevated and now it is falling in titer
Doctor :   than it means it is miscarriage
Doctor :   if the blood pregnancy hormone is normal than it means you did not had a miscarriage
User :   how do you check them?
