Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   are yu back
User :   same doctor?
Doctor :   yes Dr AAAAAAA here
Doctor :   please proceed
User :   yes. hopefully this session will function better. last msg i saw was in regards to my breast being smlal, dont notice much, have a loop recorder up on the left one ...
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   ok
User :   had you asked any other questions that i missed per the system problems?
Doctor :   i will repeat those Q
Doctor :   not a problem
Doctor :   i think there is a technical issue from your side
User :   Most likely - my apologizes for that
Doctor :   because i was able see the typed words by yu
Doctor :   its ok
Doctor :   not an issue
Doctor :   shall we proceed
User :   yes
User :   please
Doctor :   when was your last sex
User :   Saturday night, June 13
Doctor :   as you said it was unprotected
User :   also unprotected, he did not ejaculate inside, bcp taken as current antibiotics.
Doctor :   but he did not cum in to the vagina
User :   correct
Doctor :   but the precum is enough
Doctor :   for pregnancy to occur
User :   is the chance of it occuring at least rduced by the fact that ive been on BCP for nearly nine or ten years?
Doctor :   when did yu stop the BCP
Doctor :   and when did yu started it
User :   i havent stopped the BCP yet. i was advised that while i took an antibiotic (may 22-jun 1 or june 2), it could make my BCP ineffective, but i thought the chances were very very slim
Doctor :   ok
User :   to be clear, the BCP has been non stop, totally consistent and controlled.
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   thats great
Doctor :   as per symptoms also it does not fit in to pregnancy category
User :   bc i could have killed a potential fetus semi-unknowingly? (which would make me not pregnant, more or less self-aborting my child out of stupidity)?
User :   thats good news
Doctor :   did yu have withdrawl bleeding
Doctor :   that was heavy
Doctor :   with clots
User :   you mean after sex?
Doctor :   during this month
User :   inot just immediately following sex, i don't think there's been any heavy/clotted bleeding. i wouldve noticed that. there is some discharge as we mentioned before though.
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   let me explain you
Doctor :   if the fetus was killed by BCP
Doctor :   the product of conception should be out
User :   what if its not dead yet? or would it already be dead?
Doctor :   thru vagina as blood clots and some tissue
Doctor :   there is no fertilization only
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   but yu are on BCP still
Doctor :   not to worry
Doctor :   as yu didnt stop the BCP
Doctor :   the level of hormone will have the effects in the blood
User :   so theres no chance im pregnant, even with a very sick fetus?, since the BCP would have prevented/aborted the fetus being realized?
Doctor :   yu are right
User :   i knew the antibiotics would compromise the effectiveness of my BCP, but i never thought about it like this.
Doctor :   for your confirmation
Doctor :   yu can go for urine preg kit
Doctor :   its over the counter
Doctor :   i know it will be negative
User :   so i might have killed a fetus by my own backwards logic, and i may still have some vaginal bleeding to come?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   its better to continue the BCP
User :   and be prepared for (but dont hope for) any potential vaginal bleeding before my expected period, as a (potential) indicator for an aborted fetus, abroted by my bad decisions, not on purpose. i would never abort.
User :   (on purpose)
Doctor :   yes i understand
Doctor :   your feelings
Doctor :   and respect
Doctor :   its not your mistake
Doctor :   dont worry
Doctor :   dont hope for a potential bleeding
Doctor :   are yu doing urine pregnancy test
User :   not hope for, but be prepared for, in case it happens. but it is my mistake ... i didnt think i was pregnant and continued with BVP, which turns out i very well could have been pregnant, and my using the BCP would have aborted the fetus before i could even realize.
User :   i dont honestly see a point in spending the $$ on pregnancy tests, are they even accurate? in four weeks i'm schceduled to get my normal light period ... is there any reason not to wait until then, why pay for a test if i'm still on BCP?
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   i have already explained you
User :   do you know what the chances (probability) are of getting pregnant if your'e on BCP and on antibiotics, and the man does not enjaculate inside the vagina?
Doctor :   the test is for your conformtion
Doctor :   ideal would be to wait for your periods
Doctor :   the chances are very less
Doctor :   yu have a gain
User :   thank you. but i think i dont deserve something comforting now, i need to take responsibility for my actions and pray that i didn't just destroy something.
Doctor :   as you were on BCP
Doctor :   thats a strong point
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   but let me tell yu
Doctor :   yu didnt do intensionally
Doctor :   it was not purposeful
Doctor :   so i cant blame yu for that
Doctor :   but yu need to be more care ful next time
