I had heavy brown bleeding in my last period and was late by 4 days. Had severe cramping too. Did my HCG test and came as 0.1. Does this convey that it was non-pregnant. Because i believe that it was a chemical pregnancy. I am gaining weight now and fatigue as well. Please help

Brief Answer: yes, it was non-pregnant state Detailed Answer: Hello, HCG level of 0.1 definitely means a non-pregnant state. Hence, I doubt it was pregnancy. Please wait for your next period date and record your weight as well. If your weight gain is sustaining and fatigue increases, you probably would require an ultrasound evaluation of your uterus and ovaries. Regards,

I did my scans and found a right ovarian cyst. The doc says that it could be harmless and might get diffused during my period. I observe that i have mild abdominal cramps now and sever migraine and nausea.

Brief Answer: cyst is the cause of your symptoms Detailed Answer: Hi, The weight gain and fatigue is probably due to the right ovarian cyst. Yes, it could diffuse during your period. The mild abdominal cramps could again be due to the cyst. Migraine and nausea are different symptoms altogether. You need to take medicine to terminate an attack of migraine. I usually prescribe my patients tablet Rizact 10mg at once during the attack. You may try this as well. Apart from this, you need to rest and avoid the trigger that causes your migraine. I wish you quick recovery. Take care!
