    I suspect that I'm pregnant. Clearblue pregnancy test say positive but yesterday when I went Yishun Polyclinic, the test say negative.. My period is due but did not come..(usually very accurate)

    Am I pregnant? Another concern was that I went to my husband's boss housewarming two days ago and drank couple of glasses of red with brie cheese.. Just discover yesterday that these two items are taboo if you are pregnant - will there be any problem

    Hi lucida, try to abstain from alcohol and other food which is raw/semi-cooked in the meantime. Do another test & consult with your gynae. Since you suspect you may be pregnant, take precautions with what you eat & do. If you are really tested pregnant, congrats & take care.

    why dun u wait for 1 wk more then test again?

    Hi Nurse, wait for another week to test again. That would be more accurate. Sometimes, a delay in menses may not mean pregnant. Could be due to stress.

    Hi,

    Its more advisable to wait at least 1-2 weeks after your missed period day to test. my periods were usually quite on time too but there have been times my P came in 3 weeks late and I was not pregnant. Even if you go to a gynae, they'll also ask you to go back to them in 1-2 weeks time.

    Hi All,

    Need advice, i have tried to conceive for 2 months. After i missed my menses for 2 day i went to bought a pregnacy test kit to test... it shown a very fade positive therefore i went to gyna to confirm again after 3 days... but again when he tested my urine with the test kit, it again shown a very fade result that i am preggie. The gyna told me that it will consider me as preggie but is in a very early stage that y the line is very fade. Then he do ultrascan for me, the screen shown that i already got the line for pregnancy but not yet have the fluid bag (which will only have during week 5 to 6) and will have fetus in the fluid bag only in week 8 onward i think). Do anyone encounter this. Is it really because is still in the early stage? Can any mummies here explain more to me.

    Hi E-ling, i think i'm like you ... i also just bot the pregnancy test kit to test and instead of 2 super clear lines that i'm supposed to see , i see 1 super clear line and 1 very very faded and light line ... now dunno if i preggo or not ... or if the test kit is not working properly.

    If you had gone to the gynae to test then that means that u are confirm preggo rite ...

    Congrats!

    UNique,
    If your brownish discharge is sticky and fishy smelling, then you're having bacteria infection. If your discharge is cheesy and itchy, you're having fungal infection. Otherwise, if you get normal discharge with spotting, it could mean 2 things :

    1. You're pregnant
    2. You may be having a cyst or polysp in your uterus, esp if your period is heavy.

    You may have tested your pregnancy too early for now so you may not be able to get the correct results yet. If your period still don't come in 2 weeks time, try doing the pregnancy test again.

    Wendy,

    Tks...my dischrg is not brownish but pinkisk/red...

    1. I hv tested using morning urine but is negative...so may b i m not pregnant...

    2. Will vaginal scan able to tell if i hv cyst etc...cos i hv recently done a v scan n gynae said everytin is fine. Do i hv to do other test to determine if i hv cyst or polysp??
     
  18. slinky

    slinky Active Member

    Unique,
    What kind vagina scan you did? Ultrasound or physical check? Maybe the next time u see ur gynae, tell him/her about spotting before your period. I used to have a cyst near the right ovary and it caused my periods to be quite heavy and spotting before period. It also causes quite severe period pains where the cyst is. That was discovered through ultrasound.

    If not, maybe you'll want to wait 1-2 weeks before doing your pregnancy test again if your period is still not here.

I will sometimes feel keep peeping, but i will tend to endure abit then when i go to the toilet i just pee a bit. In the night the same too,will tend to wakeup go peeing.

Well, last 2 months i had my menses on the same day 14 Mar & 14 Apr. Mine menese is very regular, and it comes monthly.
    My hubby and i had intimacy on the 27 Apr n 30 Apr(believing that period of time is my ovulation ba, i am not too aware when is my ovulation, i use calendar to guide me, as for thermonemeter i really had hard time using it.)Therefore, I am wondering will i get higher chances of getting pregnant???

    your symptons sounds very like mine, but my period is not regular so i am not even sure how many months if it is positive, test kit shows negative but tcm detected pregenecy of few weeks, so i am also very lost, just have to wait until it's later in the weeks to really confirm, can also feel stomach hardening, do you?

    Hi, I am new here.

    I need an advise. I don't know whether I am pregnant or not? It is my 2nd month to take clomid. My temperature is high (36.9 decree onwards).I can feel stomach cramp at the abdomen. My nipple and breast feel slightly pain. This week is 5th week and this coming saturday will be the 6th week. I haven't use the pregnancy kit yet. Last few months,we use the pregnancy kit to test but not successful.I am very scared to see the result in negative.
     
  24. slinky

    pooh,
    U mean this is ur 5th week after missing ur period or 5th week from your last period? Normally, u should be able to get accurate results 5-7days after missing your period. To my experience, I did not feel any difference until my morning sickness kick in on my 6th week of pregnancy. Breast pain, nipple pain, cramps, etc could also be a sign of PMS so those are not tell signs of pregnancy. Only a hCG test can confirm it.

    Hi ladies,

    I am new here. I hve similar experiences as some of you ladies. two pregnancy tests show positive, so i went to the gynae as i missed my period for 2mths. but when he did the scan he can't see anything. now waiting to go back and do a check again next week.. so anxious now.. i hope it's not a false alarm.

    but i do have those preggies symptons.. eat and eat, always so hungry. now i can't wear my bottoms.. [​IMG]

    my menses late for more than 10 days but i have done the tests twice and it shows negative. I went to chinese doc to tiao my body before and after CNY, she didn't say any pregnancy signs..But i still wonder y so late tis time and i ve not experience it before. my colleague was saying i may have strike which i tik it's unlikely cos the last time we do was early jan and i still had my menses in late jan lor...

    Sigh, so busy these few weeks that i think i need to see my gynae to check wat's happening..

    sigh..

    Stress and other factors can delay menses. If it's late for so long and tests are negative, it's not likely that you're pregnant. You may also hv ovulated later than usual, hence delaying the onset of your menses.

    Not true. One of the causes of heavy period is the presense of polysps and cysts in the uterus, which will hinder pregnancy. Therefore, there's no link between period flow and increasing fertility. However, the reverse may be true though not always, ie, you may have heavy periods but you don't have polysps or uetrian cysts. Your gynae should be able to detect polysps for you when u go for your pap smear.

    You can eat any cheese that's not soft (eg fetta cheese) or rotting (eg blue cheese). Yes, you can eat those cheeses you mentioned. However, note that hard cheese have relatively high sodium content (to remove water) so, eat in moderation [​IMG]

Hope to hear good news from u

    hi gilbert,
    regarding pregnancy test kit, for the sensitive ones, which can pick up the HCG level earlier, u look for its sensitivity level. usually 10-20miu/ml will be the most sensitive ones and able to detect HCG level in urine earlier.

    clearblue test kits are accurate but expensive coz its branded. i've used pharmacy ones, also accurate, but u can also find as good as clearblue's, accurate test kits even cheaper than pharmacy's online. PM me if keen.

    Best wishes.

    If u really want to know accurately if u're pregnant, goto the GP and take a blood HCG test. That will be able to track pregnancy from day 1. Tell them u want to do the blood test for HCG level.

    Hi mamapanda

    Any idea how much e cost is? and how long will i get to know the result? Thanks
     
  45. slinky

    slinky Active Member

    LT

    If u do it at a GP or polyclinic, should be about $30+ but results will take abt 3-5days to come back. If u do it at a gynae, the cost is $60+ but u can get the results back on the same day or next day. I supposed u can try KK too.

    GOod Luck!

    Hihi, I am new here. For almost 2 weeks, I did not haf much appetite, the abdomen feels bloated, I haf clear discharge for a few days. I also experienced cramps at the abdomen. I haf backache sometimes too. At times, I would feel like vomiting but it isn't very bad. My menses is due 1st week of the month, therefore, it is abt 2 weeks from now.

    My abdomen is still bloated. It looks like I am pregnant. My menses has always been regular and on time.

    Should I get a test kit from the pharmacy to test? I am worried it is a false alarm and I am worried that the bloating is due to some illness..

    Hi there, I am new to this thread. My cycle is a 34-35 or longer cycle. My period came on 2nd oct and My hubby and I just started trying this month. My tummy began to be VERY bloated and cramping from 15-17 Oct (like menses coming but shouldn't be as my period is not due) and ever since I have little or no appetite for food. No serious vomiting or nausea. But on 22nd oct i felt terrible nausea once as I was eating spicy food and oily stuff and since then avoided them all as I feel that I may just puke if i overeat or eat such food - again, no appetite for food. Tummy as of date is mildly bloated. I tried the 10mil pregnancy test kit (supposed highly sensitive one) on 22nd oct but it's negative - not sure if I tried it too early as i have not missed my period. pls advise.. not sure what to do. not sure if we r pregnant. thanks!
     
  55. HI von, my cycle is alsolong like yours and it seems that if the cycle is long, the time taken for preg discovery is a bit later. I discovered my preg early at about week 5 during then in week 4 when i did a urine test in the polyclinic, it show a negative result. but 1 week later in week 5 the urine test suddenly became positive when the doc insist i redo another urine test at kk hospital after she knows i have a long period cycle.

    Hi Sharon,

    Is your menses regular? if it's irregular like mine, i think wait for another week and test again.

    I went to test after menses overdue 1 week and it came out -ve.

    I tried a week after, it came out +ve.

    If you are worried, suggest you visit a GP just to be sure. it's probably hormone imbalance or just late.
