Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How may i help you?
User :   I have a quick/maybe simple question to ask.
User :   Hi, I came of the pill 6 months ago because my husband and I are trying for our first baby. I had 1 menstrual cycle and then nothing for 3 months. Then I started my last cycle on the 28th July. We have been having regular intercourse but I have not been taking any ovulation tests. On the 16th August I noticed some dark brown discharge when I wiped. I have had some everyday since then (last 4 days) but it has not been alot. I also feel extremely bloated and get a quesy/nausea feeling in the evenings. I am not due for my period for at least another week/2 weeks (I can't tell for certain because they are so irregular). But could these be early pregnancy symptoms or something more sinister?
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   Just give me a moment
Doctor :   reding your query
Doctor :   Did you get a pregnancy test done
User :   I have done a home one - yesterday and it came back negative
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Generally nausea related tp pregancy appears from the third month
Doctor :   and more in the morning(early)
Doctor :   *to
Doctor :   Since you did not miss your periods they are rather earlier
Doctor :   Chances for pregancy are very less
Doctor :   Do you symptoms of crampy pain?
User :   I have had some cramps on and off
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Then the cause is most probably hormonal changes and not pregancy
Doctor :   Do you prcatise sex on calculating the ovulation days
Doctor :   Do you have more spicy foods?
User :   Because my menstrual cycle has not been regular it has been difficult to calculate when it should be.
Doctor :   Or your in any kind of stress
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   Sometimes getting more worried to conceive will result in irregular cycles tto
User :   if I go off my last period then I guess it would have been around the 12th?
Doctor :   And makes you more conscious, so we consider the smallest sign to be pregnancy
Doctor :   Your married since how many years?
User :   6 months, but we have been together for 15 years
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   when you get preganant the following signs will be there
Doctor :   1, missing a period
Doctor :   2, tenderness in breasts
Doctor :   3, nausea and vomitting in the early morning
Doctor :   4, Increased urgency to urinate
Doctor :   All the above will start around 6 weeks of preganacy
Doctor :   your problem as such now is most probably related to anxiety
User :   then should I be worried about the brown spotting that I have had?
Doctor :   No
Doctor :   If you still want your preganacy to be confirmed
Doctor :   you can go for beta HCG levels in blood, which is a accurate marker
User :   so how early can a 20hcg urine test pick up pregnancy?
Doctor :   Earluy as 6 th week'
Doctor :   *early
User :   right. ok. thanks
Doctor :   wishing you all the best
Doctor :   thanks for consulting me
