  • Pregnant before period?

    I last had my period July 31-August 5th. I am irregular. I still haven’t had my period, it’s probably because 3 weeks ago I had unprotected sex and I had took a Take Action Emergency Contraceptive Pill and my DR said that is probably what’s throwing my period off. She tested me for pregnancy last Tuesday and it came back negative. But me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex again last Saturday morning(2 days ago) and I was wondering since I haven’t had my period yet, could I possibly get pregnant still? Or no since I’m not in the ovulation period... since I’m irregular I don’t really know when I ovulate. I used a fertility tracker and it calculated that I was ovulating in the middle of the month and that I’m not in the ovulation bracket. So I’m just wondering if I would even get pregnant or not. My period should be coming within the next 5 days. DR said if I don’t get my period within two weeks I’ll need to retest for pregnancy from the 3 weeks ago that I had sex and took the plan b.

  • Sore throat won’t go away ?

    Does covid cause a sore throat? I’ve had a sore throat since July 3rd that has been on and off, it feels good one day the next it goes back to hurting horribly. I’ve had my tonsils taken out as a kid, and I’ve had strep throat in the past. I had Penicillin left over from a couple months ago, so I’ve been taking those for the last 5 days. I have been taking DayQuil/NyQuil, I’ve been taking hydrocodone I had leftover for pain, doing saltwater gargles, and I take my multivitamin. I haven’t got tested for covid or strep throat or anything yet. I’ve been staying home just taking all the medicine/remedies I’ve listed, and it seems like it works one day then around night time it comes back in. No reason this sore throat should be going on 11 days. Could possibly be covid I don’t have any other symptoms though besides headaches on and off and that’s been happening forever now. And if it was strep these penicillin antibiotics would’ve def helped by now, and the DayQuil/nyquil works temporarily and I start feeling me throat in pain all over again. :(

  • Menstrual cycle or something else?

    So about two weeks ago I had sex with my boyfriend (we don’t use protection) but I had took a Take Action emergency contraceptive 2 days afterwards. I have taken these before in the past. But my period this month is strange. I am irregular, but my period is BARELY coming out... and it’s brown. Like it’s old blood or something. The period is coming out so light that I don’t even need a pad or tampon. If feels like I’m not even on my period, I only see the blood when I wipe. And it hasn’t been a bright or dark red like it usually is. It’s just brown and it’s a very light period. I read online that the Plan B type pills can cause issues with your menstrual cycle so I’m wondering if it’s that, or maybe it could be my iron supplements that I recently just stared taking two weeks ago. Has any other woman had this issue and is this normal or should I see my doc? I just started my “period” or whatever this is 2 days ago, and my menstrual usually lasts about 4-5 days. But I only see blood when I wipe and I did have cramps a few days ago, but I still usually need a tampon when I start and it’s just different this time and my blood is never brown right at the start of my period, it’s only brown when it’s ending for me so this is different. And I’m wondering if it’s from the contraceptive pill and the iron supplements, or maybe my hormones or something else.

  • Unemployment fpuc ?

    I got laid off from my job January 28th 2020. I recently applied for unemployment almost two weeks ago. I saw that I was denied but when I called they said it was my work history from 2018 that denied me. She cancelled it out and now it says I’m approved and it’s also saying I’m getting fpuc $600 weekly. I was supposed to go back to the same job that laid me off June 2nd but was told multiple of people tested positive for covid at the job and they removed the position so I was unable to start back at the job. My question is, since me being laid of in January wasn’t covid related, will I still get the $600 fpuc or will it get cut off? A friend of mine said they contacted her job asking if the reason she’s laid off is cause of covid, her job said no, and they sent her a letter cutting her off from the $600 even though at first they said she was approved for it before calling her old job and it was pending in her bank but she ended up not receiving it. I just want to make sure I can get it still regardless if it’s covid related or not.

  • Whiplash or something else?

    I got into a car accident 2 weeks ago. I lost control of the wheel and flipped two times. I didn’t have any injuries, I wasn’t bleeding or anything like that. I had body pain all over hours after the accident happened that same day. About 5 days ago, I’ve been having the worst neck pain. It still hasn’t went away. Now my lower back is hurting and so is my chest. My blood pressure has been sorta high as well. I had just left the hospital. They did a X-ray of my chest, EKG, blood work, urine test, and that’s it and everything came back “normal” so could this be whiplash from my accident? It happened two weeks ago and I already had pain that same day from the wreck and it went away for about a week... but now my body just feels horrible.

  • Unexplained bleeding...?

    So I have irregular periods. But my period came on December 20th and I'm usually only on it for no more than 4 days. The bleeding stopped, but came back again. Was turning brown last night and showed down, but now it's fresh bright blood again today. And also I've noticed when I feel up in my private area, i feel like a lump thing. It feels like multiple of them in my vulva opening. I've also been needing to urinate but barely anything comes out. I never bleed this long and it's more so of spotting then like a heavy period but it literally comes and goes and won't stop and this never happens and I've never noticed lumps inside my vag... Idk if it's a relapsed bladder because when I press on the lump, my urine comes straight out. I can't be seen until January 27th and I'm scared because this isn't normal for me at all...

  • Pregnancy and periods?

    Me and a man I've known for awhile had unprotected sex Saturday and yesterday(Sunday) I started my period. But when my period is off is it likely I still could get pregnant after my period ends? Should I take emergency contraceptive still even though I'm on my period? Because it happened before my period then my period came the next day. And my emergency contraceptive pill is ready now through my doctor so I'm wondering if I should take it to play it safe or if I'm okay without taking it and that it's not likely I'll be pregnant after my period is over.

  • Unexplained bruises?

    I have been noticing unexplained bruises on areas of my body. There s like 5 on my right buttock, 1 on my left buttock, 3 on my legs, a couple on each sides of my stomach, one on my lower left leg and it has a bump like feeling underneath where the bruise is... I have no idea where these came from. I know last year I was iron deficient, and i did get my levels back up but i haven t been taking my iron supplements like i was supposed to since getting it back up so maybe it s super low again and that s why I m bruising easily. I m scared it s sometbing more serious like leukemia or sepsis or something... I haven t noticed any weight loss, no change of appetite, i do get fast heart rate and palpitations but that s been going on since i wss 16 (I am now 23) sometimes my neck gets tight and I get tingling in my hands but i do also have anxiety and looming at my symptoms on Google doesn t help. I do bleed easily when i brush teeth and when i floss but I dont floss a lot either. I m just really concerned with the fact i have so many bruises going on in different areas... I need opinions on what this may sound like and what my next steps should be. I am definitely going to the doctor because I can t evaluate this myself...

  • Does it sound like I have MS?

    For 3 months now, I've been having non-stop muscle spasms that won't stop. They started in my feet and have no spread everywhere. I had a baby April 16th of this year, I don't know if this is a postpartum symptom or something. muscle spasms, I haven't been able to sleep and I'll be up for hours and only get about 5 hours of sleep. My heart races, the room spins, heart palpitations, confusion, fear of something wrong with me or that something is wrong with me, my heart beat is also heavy and strong I can feel it throughout my body, and a NEW symptom I've been feeling for 5 days now is my left eyeball has sooooo much pressure behind it, that it feels like it wants to pop our or something is moving around behind it. I have to keep holding down on it or put a cold rag on it because it feels funny and it feels like I can't open it sometimes. I have already had an Cat scan on May 23rd, it was normal..I had a NCV and EMG test, they were also normal with no nerve damage or issues. Blood tests were also ran and I get a MRI Monday. I don't get any tingly feelings or numbers, I'm just struggling sleeping and have constant fear because of my symptoms and I think I have something life threatening. I don't think anxiety or stress would cause muscle spasms/twitches and eye pressure that just happened out of nowhere. I have low hemoglobin and Hematocrit but it's not too low. They never tested for anemia. They checking my B12 and Magnesium which is normal.

  • Muscle spasms issues?

    For about 2 months straight now I ve been having muscle spasms every single day. They are now sometimes painful too. They weren t before.. It s like an annoying feeling that won t stop. I ve already had a cat scan and a blood test done for magnesium and a CBC test... Everything was "normal" but I m not feeling normal At all. I m also having heart palpitations, headaches, double and blurred vision, I feel confused sometimes and my feet hurt to walk on sometimes and feels like my circulation is being cut off somehow, with numbness and tingling in my arms and feet. The spasms happen throughout my whole body. (Head, eyes, lip, chin, neck, chest, feet and toes, legs, buttocks, shoulder blades, arms, wrist, Palm and fingers) and it can happen in more then one spot at the same time. I believe this isn t anxiety or stress... As I have had both before and never experienced these kind of issues. I don t eat vegetables at all or drink milk or a lot of water or eat much fruits I eat grapes and strawberries a lot... So it could be a mineral issue

  • Emergency Contraception question.?

    Me and my boyfriend had protected sex 2 days ago but the condom broke, and he says that he doesn t think his semen got into me but I think it did and I want to make sure. I had a baby in April and already had my 6 week check up. I was wondering if since I have medical insurance, could I just call the pharmacy to get an emergency contraception prescription? Or should I call my prenatal doctor I was seeing while I was pregnant and have her call it in to the pharmacy? She sent a script over on Friday it was for Birth Control and haven t had a chance to get it I m getting it tomorrow. Can birth control be an emergency contraception as well? Please let me know because it s already been 2 days and I have until Wednesday get a pill so I won t get pregnant again.

  • What does this sound like?

    I know this isn t the place to necessarily ask this But I m going to the doctor tomorrow to see what s going on too, but I m having horribly headaches that hurt and is throbbing on and off, I feel dizzy and lightheaded, I feel a little confusion, fast heart rate here and there and I have muscle twitches or body spasms all throughout my body... Like something is wrong with my nerves or something and it s super annoying. My skin keeps jumping in more than one spot, kind of like an eye twitch but all throughout my body... I had a baby last month but I don t think it s related to that cause I ve had the body twitches for almost a year but it s gotten worse. I see a neurologist in July but I m going to the doctor tomorrow morning. I feel horrible and not like myself. Has anyone ever had this all before or know what it may sound like?

  • Heart to Heart adoption.?

    Has anyone went through Heart to Heart adoption in Utah? My friend is a birth mother wanting to possibly use them. Are they good and supportive? If any birthmothers have used them, did they say anything about $3,000 post confinement after having your child? I'm asking so she doesn't go through any kind of fraud agencies... So far she wants to try this one after we do some more searching on reviews. Thanks

  • Adoption question.?

    I am asking for my sister. Can a birth father that's in jail sign his rights over to his mother? The attorney visited him in jail to sign the relinquishment papers and he did NOT sign them and said he wants to fight for his baby. No one knows when he is getting out of jail either. The birth mother wants her baby back as well and made the wrong decision and since she signed her rights over it's irrevocable. We are in the state of Kansas. She had her baby a week ago and no one is helping her and telling her she can't do anything about it. Her boyfriend even wants to be involved and said he will adopt her baby for her. Please NO NEGATIVE COMMENTS. Thank you.
