Symptoms of pregnancy?

Hi, last month my period came about 40 days after my last cycle. I thought there was a chance i could be pregnant but all tests were negative at thAt point. I am now experiencing mild cramps, tender breasts, and light brown discharge. Also my belly appears to be pulsating, could i be pregnant?

Thanks for writing to us.

Brown discharge, cramp with sore breast and late period needs to be concerned. Late conception should be ruled out in this case.

Common symptoms of pregnancy:

a) Missed period, nausea, vomiting, tender and swollen breast.

b) Increased frequency of urination, fatigue, food craving.

c) Slight vaginal spotting, cramping, mood swing, constipation etc.

I suggest you to undergo one blood test for beta-hCG and Trans Vaginal ultrasound scan to rule out underlying pathology or product of conception.

Other reasons are endometriosis, old blood, endometrial tissue, hormonal imbalance, stress/ depression, vaginal/ pelvic infection etc.

Please consult with gynecologist for complete health check up with relevant investigation. Take proper medication if required.

Maintain genital hygiene. Avoid mental stress. Practice safe sex in future.

Hope, I have answered your query. Good luck and take care.
