Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

hi

Dr Owen :

How long ago was day 14?

Dr Owen :

What day of the month did this happen?

Dr Owen :

Was this yesterday?

Dr Owen :

Was this 14 days ago?

Dr Owen :

Was this 10 days ago?

Dr Owen :

Was this the 14th of May?

Dr Owen :

Hello - are you there?

Customer:

was on 24th may

Dr Owen :

so 2 days ago?

Dr Owen :

and have you been on birth control or is this the first the time in a long time you have taken birth control?

Customer:

just 1 pill

Customer:

i hav never felt this cramps beore

Customer:

i hav lower backahe aswell and period like pains in pelvic area

Customer:

hello r u there

Dr Owen :

ARe you continuing to take the birth control pill?

Customer:

no

Dr Owen :

Well since this is Midcycle and only 2 days ago - this is NOT likely to be from pregnancy symptoms -

Dr Owen :

This is MORE than likely due to the Midcycle Hormonal Surge -

Dr Owen :

and also could be that you might have ruptured the ovulation cyst that produces an egg and hence you might have had some bleeding from this and hence all the pain and cramping.

Customer:

i always hav these type pain before i get pregnant

Dr Owen :

Now, pregnancy symptoms do NOT occur until at least 10 to 14 days after you had had sex

Dr Owen :

that is fine - yes women have these symptoms - but these symptoms are Impossible to have IF ACTUALLY due to a pregnancy until at least 10 to 14 days After you have gotten pregnant - so this does not mean you did not get pregnant 2 days ago - but to HAVE the symptoms of a pregnancy are impossible to occur until at least 10 to 14 days AFTERwards -

Dr Owen :

Now you COULD have gotten pregnant earlier - say 2 weeks ago - that is a possibilitiy too

Customer:

even my cycle is 36 days can it be possible that u ovulate arround day 14?

Dr Owen :

OH -

Dr Owen :

if you have a 36 day cycle - You ovulate on day 22

Customer:

normally my is 28 days but its been 2mths going over

Dr Owen :

then a 28 day cycle is ovulation on day 14

Dr Owen :

So if these symptoms ARE pregnancy symptoms - then you would have a positive pregnancy test now....if the pregnancy test is negative now, then these symptoms are NOT due to a pregnancy - very simple

Dr Owen :

and then these syptoms are JUST due to a hormonal surge

Dr Owen :

and /or due to a ruptured ovarian cyst

Customer:

is my cycle normal 28 days or is it 36 days im so confused plz help me?

Dr Owen :

I can't tell you what your cycle is - Only YOU know that

Dr Owen :

CLEAR YOUR MIND right now

Dr Owen :

Please READ what I am writing

Dr Owen :

you are confusing things in your mind and you are not reading what I am writing

Dr Owen :

go back to the beginning of what I have written ....

Customer:

yes i hav read this

Dr Owen :

so at this point it really does not matter how many days in your cycle

Dr Owen :

so you are Asking what your symptoms are.

Customer:

so how will i know when is my ovlution day is

Dr Owen :

Now IF you think think these symptoms are due to a pregnancy - then you would have a positive pregnancy test right now....okay - that is very simple I hope to understand

Dr Owen :

And to know when you ovulate - You have to Know how many days you have in a cycle - If you do not know that - they you have to use an OPK - Ovulation Test Kit - you can buy that where you buy Pregnancy tests

Dr Owen :

If you have SEX PRIOR to the 24th - say two weeks ago - this could be a pregnancy -

Dr Owen :

but you have said you only had sex on the 24th of May...

Dr Owen :

so You have to realize I only KNOW what you have told me -

Customer:

i started with singing on leftside firt then in middle in pelvic area and then inlower back

Dr Owen :

singing?

Customer:

no ihave had sex before this aswell but it wasnt day 14 though

Customer:

stinging and pinching

Dr Owen :

so you have been having unprotected sex the past 30 days?

Customer:

well i had periods on 11 may for 7 days

Dr Owen :

that is not what I asked?

Dr Owen :

have you been having unprotected sex for the past 30 days?

Customer:

yes

Dr Owen :

okay

Dr Owen :

then do a pregnancy test now....if the test is negative, then you are not pregnant at least right now.

Dr Owen :

and the symptoms you are having are MORE than likely from an ovarian cyst that probably ruptured.

Dr Owen :

And, finally if not from a cyst, then this could be from an UTI - Urinary tract infection or a possible urinary tract stone.

Dr Owen :

So I would do a pregnancy test now

Dr Owen :

and if not pregnant - get an Ultasound of the pelvis

Dr Owen :

and then also do an Urinanalysis to check your urine for an infection or a stone.

Customer:

can i do apregnacy test before im due for periods

Dr Owen :

Yes

Dr Owen :

you might be pregnant from a previous sexual encounter

Dr Owen :

not just the 14th of May

Customer:

it wont tell me about the 14th day one

Dr Owen :

THE EARLIEST you can test for a pregnancy and Have symptoms of a preganncy is at least 10 to 14 days afterwards

Dr Owen :

so NO this test can NOT test for a pregnancy from the 24th of May until at least 10 to 14 days later - and you can NOT have symptoms from a pregnancy from the 24th of May until 10 to 14 days later.

Dr Owen :

I'm trying to explain this in very simple terms....

Dr Owen :

I'm not sure why you are not understanding this....

Dr Owen :

I'm not using any medical terminology

Customer:

how can u get pregnant if u have 1 or 2 irregular periods or can u

Dr Owen :

I'm using very simple English to explain this

Dr Owen :

You can get pregnant at any time -

Dr Owen :

at any time of the month IF you have ovulated....

Customer:

even if u r irregular

Dr Owen :

and you do NOT aways Know when you have ovulated IF you have an irregular period

Customer:

ohh ok

Dr Owen :

good

Dr Owen :

I think you get it now

Dr Owen :

so do a pregnancy test today

Dr Owen :

If the pregnancy test is NOT positive today

Customer:

yes sorry to trouble u like this

Dr Owen :

then your symptoms are MORE than likely due to an ovarian cyst

Dr Owen :

or an Urinary tract problem -

Dr Owen :

I wish you well
