I have had extremely painful abdomen pains, is it an ectopic pregnancy ?

Could anyone help me, I have put this under pregnancy because its the only thing i can think it might be. I have been taking a new contraceptive pill for the last 3 months now called Qlaira. I had a normal period after the first month of taking the tablets. Since then I have missed one period and late on my second, I am sexually active and have been on antibiotics and also accidental missed a few tablets. When I realised I missed the tablets I followed the instructions of the packet and stopped taking that packet and started a new one. However over the last few weeks I have been experiencing pregnancy like symptoms, for example breast tenderness, breast getting bigger, nausea but no sickness, fatigue, increase in appetite, therefore after reading a forum on a website I have stopped taking my pill as I am frightened that if I am pregnant it will harm the baby. Over the last week I have had extremely painful abdomen pains, and I am worried it is an ectopic pregnancy. I do have an appointment with my doctor next week but I am very anxious for some advice.

Have you done the Urine pregnancy test yet ? Since you missed one period and late on the second one, chances of being pregnant is high. Abdominal cramping and pain may happen in even early normal pregnancy so do not worry about it being ectopic.Whether it is ectopic or not will be judged through ultra sound only. So meet your doctor after doing the pregagncy test at home.

Unless it is a confirmd pregnancy by the kit and by an initial ultra sound,there is no need to stop the OP. since you have already stopped OP then you are doing the right thing by meeting the doctor.You can get the home test done first.

I did an IUI on 4th September 2015. I was told to take a pregnancy test on 18th September 2015. The past few days I have been feeling weird stretching kind of cramps on my lower abdomen and it is very frequent. It is not extremely painful but it is a cramp pain sensation. Could I be pregnant? Is this a ectopic pregnancy?

Hello Doctor, I am married. I have a problem with irregular menstruation from many years. It skips for at times 2 months at a stretch. I recently got married but we never had intercourse so far. We are only having orals like fingering. He stays outside the city and comes only for 2-3 days in a month. 10 days back when he had come, we just had orals at night; same day morning I had a little crampy pain in abdomen which lasted for couple of hours and then went off. Around 5 days back I started having constant cramps in my lower abdomen which were extreme for 1-2 days n then subsided to minimal with a feeling of pain in lower abdomen. I haven t got periods yet. Is the pain due to periods not coming, if yes please tell me which medicine to start with to get periods in coming days. PCOS was done few years back. It was negative. One more thing I would like to ask you is that, is it possible that the precum can play any role in pregnancy like if there is slight precum on the penis and its just rubbed over the outer wall of the vagina, or there is deep fingering after that, can it induce pregnancy and if yes under what circumstances? [Ectopic pregnancy any chance with Irregular periods] Also want to ask you why there is constant mild pain in lower abdomen? I suddenly started with the pain; first 3 days it was very severe but now its mild and constant. Earlier when I used to have the feeling of onset of periods, I used to get cramps but not the constant types. Just would last for couple of hours or a day and then go off. This time why it is constant? Also a general question, after how many days a girl will show signs or symptoms of pregnancy? Await reply Regards n Thanks Supriya

Hi there, I have been on yasmin (pill) since 2012 having never taken the pill before. I was diagnosed with having an ovarian cyst at the time having complained of very painful periods and bleeding in between periods my whole life. Yasmin has been excellent but for the past two months I have experienced bleeding a week before my period. I had another ultra sound and my cyst has grown bigger (before was 5cm ). I feel bloated all the time (even before pill) and find it difficult to pee. I have never been sexualy active so didnt want a transvaginal ultrasound........so my doctor instead told to go on cilest which I am reluctant to use since have read negative reviews. From my brief history do you think yasmin is causing the bleeding? should I take new pill? Any advice on what other steps I can take instead? THANKS
