Hi everyone, I'm not sure if I am supposed to introduce myself anywhere so I am sorry that I have just jumped in with both feet asking questions but I would really like your input on my situation... I M/C after xmas 08, after this I stopped using my contraceptive patch because I wanted some normal periods without outside influence. Jan, Feb and march periods were painful, which is new to me as I never have any PMT or pain, I just used to bleed like there was no tomorrow (sorry TMI)and it would last a whole week. NOW the problem is on 7/4/09 I had unprotected sex, this turns out to be when I was very likely to be ovulating. 1 week before my period was due I had constant dull headache, occasional nausea and heartburn (and a few other bits) then around the time my period was due I had creamy brown discharge followed by red slimy discharge then brown again and only lasted 3 days. During this time the symptoms seemed to go but as soon as the bleeding stopped the symptoms came back with a vengeance. A HPT was negative. Could I be pregnant and the bleeding be decidual causing a false negative OR did I get my period and am I simply not pregnant? thoughts anyone please?
