Abdominal pulsing, dry mouth. Pregnant?

hi. my period is 6 days late but i do not think i am experiencing any significant symptoms of pregnancy. around 10 days ago though, for 2 straight days i noticed a pulsing feeling in my lower left abdomen . during this time, up to three days after, my mouth was extremely dry and i d drink water frequently. now, i haven t had my period yet but last night, i was pressing my lower abdomen, i noticed that the left part is slightly painful when pressed, as opposed to right part which felt soft and not painful at all. i haven t done any pregnancy tests , but is it possible i am pregnant? thanks.

Hi and thanks for the query,
Its actually too early to start expecting clinical signs and symptoms of pregnancy at 6 days. However, the commonest cause of lack of seeing periods in females of reproductive age, especially those having been exposed to unprotected sex during the fertile periods of their cycles is pregnancy. Mild pain or implantation bleeding might be observed as you described any way. The pregnancy tests used however become positive only after 7 days after implantation. It be reasonable for you to be patient a bit and do a blood pregnancy test, Beta HCG levels which is relatively very accurate. Pregnancy is a possibility, but expecting clinical signs of pregnancy as early as 6 days might be too early. Consult your primary care physician for pregnancy testing.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
