Question: Hi there
I recently presented to the doctors with mild on off twinges in abdomen and slight cramping, I also am 2 weeks late for me period.
I was sent for a scan to rule out ectopic and also was told I was not pregnant that they could see and eptopic was also not seen.
I was told I have a lot of free fluid that is also echogenic in my pouch of XXXXXXX messuring a whopping 41mm by 15mm by 12mm
I'm am very concerned about this and am still waiting for a gyno referral even though my doc put urgent! it's now been a week!
I will add they could not see any masses, legions and that my Uterus was measuring 8mm at the time of the scan!
I have right ovarie of 4.5cc (normal) and a corpus lithium at my left overie so ovulation did take place.
My doc says I have normal ovaries and a normal uterus but I did notice that on my paper work it says I have an inverted uterus, which I was not aware off until now!
Please help my doc can't give me any advice and the gyno is just brushing it off!
We are wanting to start ttc and I'm very scared at this point!

Brief Answer:
Do a home pregnancy test

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns.

You are unlikely to be having ectopic pregnancy. However do a simple home pregnancy test to check if you are pregnant which will rule out ectopic pregnancy if not pregnant.

Free fluid in POD is present in some women with pelvic infection. PLease request your gynecologist to prescribe you antibiotics to treat the same.

I dont see any reason to be scared. Let me know your home pregnancy test report.

I had unprotected sex on june 9th. and again on june 12th with the same guy. We are both clear of std's, but I have been pregnant before with twins and miscarried. When I was supposed to get my period (june 19th) there was some spotting and some pink discharge, as well as some burning during urination. I have had a horrible migraine for 3 days now, and I was nauseous all day today when I was trying to bake, but I also just had surgery on my jaw, and thought that could be the trigger of my nauseousness. Do you think I am pregnant?

I had unprotected intercourse with my boyfriend on May 18, '13 (May 10 - start of my period) which is may last day of regular menstruation. No ejaculation happened inside me and my bf confirmed that. I'm getting paranoid cause I'm not yet ready to get pregnant so i researched some contraceptives and Nordette is the only available here in our country. So I took nordette 21(4 pills) and another 4 pills after 12 hrs, within 72 hrs after our intercourse. After 4-5 days (May 24), I got a withdrawal bleeding which happened for 4 days. I haven't got my period yet (June 9 or 10, '13) and I'm two weeks delay now. I haven't take a PT yet. Is there a chance that I'm pregnant? How long does Nordette can delay a period? Please reply to my question 'coz it will really help me to stay calm and not to worry. Thank you.
