Trying to get pregnant, delayed periods, light then, pregnancy symptoms. Solution ?

Hi, my partner and have been trying to get pregnant for the last 5 months, I already have a daughter, he a son. My periods have been like clockwork since I can remember and even the first 3 months of us trying. The last period again started dead on time but was extremely light and lasted 2 days (always usually 5) this period was 4 days late and again extremely light and for a few days. I have taken a pregnancy test which has showed negative but my body is giving me symptons such as mood swings, extremely bloated tummy, stretching pain, extreme fatigue, being sick, itchy nipples. Please can you help

Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
You mentioned that the last period was on TIME but lasted for 2 days.
Again period ( after one month but 4 days late) stated but lasted for 2 days , but light.
All symptoms you mentioned as mood swings, cramps, fatigue, sickness, tender breast , nipples indicates pregnancy but pregnancy test is negative even after 2 months time ( 1st & 2nd period as mentioned above).
In my opinion all these symptoms are due to tension ( stress ) of conception and is an indication of pseudo pregnancy.
Still , if doubt consult gynecologist and physical examination will clear all things.
Good luck. Dr. HET

My partner is 3 months through his treatment for Gordonia Renal TB. The night sweats have more or less stopped and it seems reasonable to assume there isn't much he can do about the severe tiredness except rest but is there any pain relief he could take for the pain he is experiencing on the right side of his kidney area (where he has 6 cysts) hip and pelvic area. He said it is like being kicked. Thank you Natasha

I am a 26 year old female. I have been experiencing, for almost two years extreme pain and bloating immediatley after eating. I also experience extreme tiredness to the extent I am falling asleep at work as I feel drowsy and struggle to keep my eyes focused. I also suffer from nasua and heartburn/indegestion. I haved tested negative for anemia, cealliac and thyroid imbalance. Could you please suggest from my symptoms what this could possibly be? I dont eat any of the folowing foods as they same to make it worst - bread, chocolate, coffee soup, all dairy. I have also tried Rennie tablets and peppermint tablets (colpremin & buscopan) to no avail. Are there any tests I could have to eliminate any problems that I could suggest to my doctor as they have not been very supportive or even suggeste or prescribed medicine or diets. any help would be much appreciated.

I am on methadone (opoid pharmacotherapy) and experience chronic constipation. I have tried lactulose, glycerin suppositories, and microlax but I am still not regular enough and look sickly and pallid, and experience intense fatigue and brain fog after the 5th day of not doing a number 2. I eat 1-2 meals consisting wholly of fresh fruit per day, plus I do 45 minutes of vigorous Ashtanga yoga an average of 6 days per week, with lots of walking as part of my lifestyle. What should I do? Also, I know that aloin is an effective laxative. Is it safe to use every day over the long term? What about senna? I have heard that any stimulant laxative is not safe to use daily ove the long term. Is that correct?
