Would a pregnancy be detected by 13 weeks in a pelvic ultrasound even if i didnt mention pregnancy? I got a pelvic ultrasound at what would've been 13 weeks pregnant and the doctor said my uterus and ovaries were good and the my uterus lining was 5.0 mm. This was 4 days after my withdrawal bleed. I hope you can answer my question.

Yes. No one is somehow missing a pregnancy that far along when doing an ultrasound. The uterus looks very different when it is empty than when there is a three-months along fetus inside of it.

Any steps yet on seeking out that mental healthcare?

Thank you so much for replying Heather. Does the same thing apply even if it wasnt a transvaginal ultrasound? As is the one they just do on the outside
Yes, I have set a date to see a counsellor next week and I'm really looking forward to it. Im hoping I can get over this whole situation by september as i start university again and i cannot continue having this anxiety. I have been feeling a bit better this past week and I am expecting my 4th period since the incident sometime in the next 5 days. A voice in the back of my head keeps telling me that i will not get it because im pregnant but im trying as hard as i can to ignore it.

I understand that i am frustrating you, but i feel like for the meantime you are the only one that can make me feel better. I am doing alot better now compared to the last couple of months but i find myself still checking my belly for a bump every couple of hours. My belly is still flat but
I tend to panic at night when it is abit bigger. At back of my head i keep telling myself that by 15 weeks i should have an obvious baby bump. I havent seen my boyfriend since the incident because i travelled the next day to my home country where my family is for summer and i have been here for 3 months. Im going back to my boyfriend in a month and im really looking forward to it because i feel like that will make a big difference to me. Being with him will make me feel better for sure. The past 3 months have been the absolute worst for me, simply from the fear of being pregnant. I've had pelvic ultrasounds for my uterus and ovaries, but not a transvaginal one, at what would've been 4 weeks, 5 weeks, 8 weeks, and 13 weeks. The doctor mentioned nothing about pregnancy during all 4 of the ultrasounds and told me that my uterus and ovaries were normal.

This whole pregnancy scare became alot worse when i got 2 faint positives on a pregnancy test brand called Predictor. After reading reviews online, almost every review i read was about the brand giving false positives and being notorious for them. So after that i tested with almost 6 different brands and they all showed negative, and i have continued testing up until today with brands other than Predictor, all are negative. I even emailed the Predictor company, and they didnt seem surprised at all about the false positive. It upsets me so mich that they would continue to produce and sell something like that

I set a hard limit with you in another of your posts that I can see you have read, here: http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/ultimatebb.php?/ubb/get_topic/f/10/t/002644/p/1.html#000006

The fact that you feel I meet your wants does not trump my limit, especially considering the one-way nature of the relationship any member of our staff or volunteers have with users.

When someone sets a limit with us, the only right response is, "Okay." Not "But I want that thing from you you said you cannot or will not give me," or "I feel my needs are more important than your limit, so too bad for you," or some kind of attempt to manipulate your way past someone's clearly expressed limits.

Respecting someone's expressed limits is just plain old basic common courtesy. I need you to extend that to me.

If you can't manage that, or refuse to again, we'll need to just suspend your use of the boards so that we can get our limits respected without your cooperation. But it'd sure be nice if we didn't have to do that and you could just treat us - and me -- with that basic respect and courtesy instead.
