I am getting mild heartburn,loss of appetite and lack of sleep but hpt -ve. Did I take hpt early ?

HI doc, for the past 2weeks I ve been feeling bloated here and there in my stomach. I also experience mild heart burn from time to time within these two weeks. In addition, my appetite goes up and down as well as my sleeping patterns. I took a HPT and it came out negative. Should I even consider the option of being pregnant or just schedule an appt for the OB/GYN?

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
What was your due date of periods?If you did your pregnancy test at more than 7 days overdue and it was the first morning sample of urine that you tested then certainly you are not pregnant as the symptoms you are feeling are not so specific for pregnancy.

Period started 02/09 and lasted for 5-6 days. We were intimate on 02/15 but did not have sex, but I was on his lap naked. Scheduled ovulation was between March 2-7. On March 4 brown spotting, some dark blood, mild cramps,& headaches. These symptoms still remain 6 days later. HPT taken on March 4th was negative. My next period is due around March 19. Was it too early to take the test and could I be pregnant?

I am 41 had tubal ligation with clamps will be 10 years the first of March. I had my gallbladder removed two years ago due to gallstones. Lately I have been having almost like pregnancy symptoms, nausea and muscle aches. My last cycle was July 22. I did take a test came back negative so I am really unsure what is wrong.

Hello, I am 19 years old and have had my implanon since december 17th 2010, on monday the 22/April/2013 I had my implanon removed and another and more new version of the implanon inserted straight after. My doctor said wait two days until I have unprotected sex with my partner and I did, but since then I ve been experiencing a lot of symptoms for pregnancy. I understand that it is too early and that the implanon will give my body similar and if not the same side affects as a pregnancy at times. However, I have a weird feeling and so I am just wondering that for reassurance measures if I were... How long should I wait before taking a HPT? I don t get my period whilst having the implanon so I can t go off that which is why I am asking... Kind regards, krysta :)

I take a generic version of Caduet (can t remember the name). Every since I was switched to the generic version, I have had more bouts with heartburn or indigestion. I have also changed my diet to include quite a few more raw vegetables and fruits. Is this something related to one another? What should I consider?

Diagnosed with gastritis 5 months ago, had three benign biopsies during endoscopy, was told to stay on Prilosec 20mg. Stopped daily caffeine diet soft drinks (24-32 oz a day at that time) and changed diet. Have no stomach discomfort but still had mild heartburn when I tried to stop Prilosec for a couple weeks. Do I stay on Prilosec forever? Concerned about long-term effect.

Hello Doctor, My partner has had loss of taste and smell and is confusing tastes and has a constant earthy, mouldy taste in his mouth which I can smell on his breath. He has been taking medication for indigestion, heartburn and colestoral and last October had minor surgery in his throat for a small growth on his vocal chords. He has since been advised to cease the medications but this has not helped. I would like a gastroscopy but his doctor has not suggested this. They think its related to the reflux. We are looking for some new ideas please. Glenda and Bob
