Ok, please dnt judge me - me and my bf have been having unprotected sex for about 3/4 months (yes i know how stupid that is) we are both clean (STI screens). I have taken two tests the last one about a month and a half ago and they were both negative. My periods are very irregular and i have only had one period in the 3/4 months we have being have unprotected sex and it lasted 1 day! I took the first test straight after that and like i said it was negative and that was in the 1st month.
For about a week i have been feeling sick but i havn't actually been sick, my boobs have been really sore and i keep getting pains in my lower abdomen could that be early pregnancy symptoms?
Also i have been for an ultra sound today to check for gall stones as i had a severly inflammed gall bladder about 2 months ago and the nurse never said anything, which she would if i was pregnant, wudn't she? I'm not sure whether to take another test or not! Because i thought if i was the nurse would have said something.

Well, when they're doing an ultrasound for your gallbladder, they're not looking at your uterus. So, that wouldn't have shown them anything per pregnancy. However, you likely also had some urine/bloodwork done for this, in which case a pregnancy test is generally standard. But you could certainly call the doctor/nurse and ask.

Tender breasts certainly can be a sign of early pregency, and if you have been at this for several months, but only took a test last a month and a half ago, it'd be sage to take one again if you have not had a regular period in the last two months.

And obviously, if you do NOT want to become pregnant, you need to either abstain from intercourse or you and your partner need to start using a method of birth control yesterday. Do you need help? Having troubles with your partner accepting that limit?

Also, glad you've finally gotten into the doctor. I hope you mentioned any excessive dieting you're doing? Because starvation/fad dieting could very well be the source of both your irregular periods AND gallbladder problems.

You go to the forum that's relevant to your question, then look at the top right hand corner of the page - right there you'll find something that says "Post New Topic". Click on that.
