  • did they do a blood test? if they did i dont think you are pregnant. But sometimes your mind can play games and you can start lactating when you realy THINK you are pregnant which in your case, you seem to really THINK that and are SO HOPEFUL about it.

  • they only did a urine test....does it matter which test they did?

  • Urine tests can be inaccurate. Blood tests are not.

  • Women do not get pregnant if they have hi Prolactin; thats why B/feeding mamas, as myself don't get period. Hi Prolactin is telling body u r preg sort of; so you may not ovulate. Keep track of your monthly cycle. Hi estrogen presents itself w/very apparent CM-cervical mucus-which is needed to help the sperm get thru the cervix and into uterus,tubes. It is egg white slippery once a month usually, most fertile time-as in- time of ovulation. Some people can feel ovulation, like a mild cramp near the ovaries. The egg floats from ovary to tube for 12-24h which is why sperm MUST be present at that time (prior to ovulation/not after); sperm does live up to 3 days, programmed to find the egg. Progesterone is the pregnancy hormone that "sustains" a pregnancy. Birth Control pills are hi in Progest. I forget whats in the pills you were given but they are meant to drop the Progest. I agree I would not take if you ARE preg.

  • a quantitative blood test Beta HCG is CERTAIN; thats all you need right now re: the pills. But w/the symptom also of lactation, I would have a Prolactin test done by OB/gyn, and then RUN to the nearest perinatologist/hi risk OB who should be better informed than these darn*** OBs for those of us TTC. After no later than 6m of TTC w/hi risk OB, waste no time making appt w/Reproductive Endocrinologist aka fertility specialist; check your insurance- plan to spend a bit more for fertility drugs if thats the case.

  • I am going to ask a question that sounds really dumb but it happened to a friend of mine. Do you drink cows milk? They inject them with hormones to make the cow produce more and more milk. It can enter the milk and thus our systems by drinking their milk. I know wal mart milk is one of the worst for it.

  • My friend lactated (sp) when she was pregnant and it was due to a tumor pressing on one of her glands.

  • Blood tests still can give you a false negative though.
