Can I be pregnant?

Yup. One of those. I plan on going to the dollar store and getting a test tomorrow but I am not chewing my nails in worry.

I have been bleeding for 5 weeks straight, please don't say go to the dr. We don't have insurance and I can't afford to pay out, we can't afford another child either. We use condoms and we did the pull out method once, yeah yeah I know stupid, but it was when I was on this thing called a period and yes I know I can get pregnant while on your period. But this isn't a normal period.

So yesterday I was seriously nauseated. Today I have been having cramps and latley I have been super tired but I figured that was from the lovely anemia i never get rid of and am pretty sure I am doubled up on now.

So could I get pregnant while bleeding forever and a day from 1 time of a mistake and still bleeding?

Blah blah yea one of those posts....

Yes, sorry. Since it isn't in your plans right now.  The nausea and cramps though can be from the bleeding also.  I know you said don't tell you to, but you should see a doctor.

A lot of states have a plan for women to get free birth control and female exams. Have you looked into those? Maybe that could pay for a Dr. visit for you? If you call a health department clinic they should be able to tell you how to apply or look online. I hope you can find something to help.

The nausea and being tired could be from bleeding so long, it could be aggravating your anemia. Try taking extra iron. Maybe you call a nurse hotline and ask about the bleeding for 5 weeks thing? Then you'll know how urgent it is that you go in atleast.

The emergency room cannot turn u away for inability to pay. After 5 weeks of heavy bleeding you should go or it can be something serious and u could die, and the child u have now cannot lose u. While at the hospital, explain that u have no insurance and say "I NEED CHARITY CARE or WHATEVER U HAVE TO HELP PATIENTS WHO HAVE NO ABILITY TO PAY" and they will get u forms to fill out. Odds are u wont have to pay anything but go. I am sure ure fam. cannot afford to BURY YOU, and yes I will say it very bluntly because u NEED to go to a DOCTOR NOW even if it is 1 at the ER.

5 WEEKS of bleeding? Sounds more serious than pregnancy.

Okay, you have no money for doc- find an open door clinic. You don't have to show proof of income, and it's sliding scale. You could pay a few bucks and get it.

No, it doesn't sound like your pregnant. It sounds like you have some other health issues that needs to be looked at right away.
