The only way to know for certain is to take a pregnancy test.Please take a home test.If positive you should get an ultrasound.If negative you also need to be checked out for hormone imbalance.

what food should avoid if i m pregnant n before an hour i ate a boiled egg n i hv stomach pain n i hv a pin drop of red spot what should i have to do now
OBGYN Dr. Rhea Chanda's  Response
You need to confirm pregnancy first.There is no restriction regarding food.
Avoid alcohol,caffeine,smoking.If you get bleeding you need to rule out pregnancy first.With just a spot,you need to take as much rest as possible if your test is positive.Avoid outside food.

Thanks for your query.
There are so many causes of missed period.
Pregnancy is very common cause of missed period.
If you had a intercourse then do a pregnancy test.
If your pregnancy report is negative then please do a USG lower abdomen and consult your gynecologist.

Best wishes

Hi my name is Katie, and I’m looking for answers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m a 26 year old, mother of three under three. I was a healthy active mom until I had my third child. After I had had my wonderful little boy I Started to noticed changes in my bowels. Almost every month I would have episodes of extreme abdomen pain with dierhea. By the time my son was two months old I decided to get it checked. It turned out I had a bladder infection. The following month things got worse; yet again I had a bladder infection, only this time the dierhea got a lot worse. I was going to the bathroom 20 plus times a day and had blood in each bowel movement, after three days of this I went to the ER were they suspected I had colitis of the bowel. They sent a referral to a gastrologist, Which I see as of May 9, 2011.The next day the abdominal pain got so bad I had made an appointment with my family doctor, where I got a prescription Asacol 400 mg. After a day on the medication the dierhea slowed down. I thought I was in the clear. I knew what was wrong and felt better. That was until I developed a temp of 107 with lower back pain that night. Went back to the ER to find out I had no colitis of the bowels, but did have a bowel infection. I was sent home with antibiotics. My son is now 5 months old and my health just keeps failing. I’m not eating good, yet not losing weight, no period, and not pregnant. As of four days ago I started to develop severe joint pain with swelling and no redness, for no reason. First day my left hand, that night my left foot, next day was by far the worst, when the pain moved into my right knee, making it impossible to walk. I could not bend the leg at all. By day three back into the ER I go. Was positive for a d-dimer, but the ultrasound found no clots. All other routine blood work was ok. As of today the pain has faded a bit in the joints I have stated about, however has moved into my left shoulder and left knee. I’m on large amount on pain and anti-inflammatory medications. Still no answers. I know I’m becoming extremely frustrated and depressed. I’m so tired of being sick. Please if you know anything let me know. Sincerely, Katie

I have been consuming alcohol for last 10 yeras. Last one year only intermittent consumption. LFT readings are high after consumption, gets within normal reading within 2 weeks of stopping. Stopped conumption on 25th January. LFT readings on 13th February was- Bilirubin total 0.6, direct 0.2. SGOT 37, SGPT 47. On 23rd February LFT showed elevated bilirubin - 1.2,0.3. 35, 44. No alcohol intake during the period. Ultrasound scan taken on 26th showed liver, normal in size, with fatty infiltration. From 26th February till 12th March consumed alcohol. LFT taken today 27th March shows, bilirubin 1.2. 0.3, Sgot 39, SGPT 42. Usally after abstainance for two weeks, bilirubin should have been well within normal levels. Does this indicate any liver damage or beginning stage of cirrhosis? kindly advise. Now after three weks bilirubin levels are again normal at 0.7.
