Pregnant or not
Hi, i did a pregnancy test on Sunday, 18/10/09. It was neg. But my concern is that I was on the tryphasil for 5yrs and I decided to go off it. I' m off since 21/10/09 and I shouldv' e gotten my period the first week in Oct and didn' t. My concern is that i have the flu and feeling very dead (sick) but afraid to take anything cause what if I' m pregnant? Can dr please help and advise. I also have this bad pains over my tummy and on the sides of my body as well.

Thanking you in advance

Do you mean that you stopped Triphasil on 21/9/09. If the pregnancy test was negative two weeks after your expectd period, then pregnancy is unlikely. You will have to see a doctor to determine the cause for the stomach pains.
