This is horrible! (Warning: may contain TMI)
The date of my last menstrual cycle was 09/22/2013 and I seem to get my period every 30 days. My husband and I were intimate while I was ovulating, and my period is MIA when it should have been here 6 days ago. On the 22nd of OCTOBER when I was supposed to get my period again, I instead had 3 days of what looked to be ‘old blood' since it was brown in color. (It was also VERY light in flow, not even enough to require a panty liner.) I've taken a few dollar store tests, all of which came back negative, including the one I took this morning.
When I was pregnant with my daughter over 6 years ago I had horrible morning sickness but that was it, and my second pregnancy which resulted in a miscarriage 18 months ago didn't make me even the slightest bit sick, but my breasts were very tender.
Right now I feel sick all of the time, like I may puke, I'm more exhausted than I've EVER been, my uterus keeps feeling like it is contracting or something along those lines and I have been extremely emotional and hormonal which is not like me at all. All of these symptoms started 2-3 weeks ago, but I do not have the tender breasts.
I know most of you are going to suggest I go to the doctor for conformation and/or a blood test, but I do not have health insurance which eliminates that avenue. (I HAD insurance three weeks ago when this all started & went to my family doctor who ordered extensive blood work after my in-office urine test came back negative just to rule out any other possibilities, but he did not order a blood test.) I have always been VERY in tune with my body and I feel like something is really off.
What do you ladies suggest? The ‘not knowing' part really bothers me. Has anyone else ever had this problem, and if so, would you be willing to share your story with me? Also, any suggestions would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.
