I’m confused

scared as I don’t want to Be pregnant

Sorry for the late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all this additional information.

I understand your concern.

And it’s my first privilege to pay attention and provide you with explanations and suggestions to relieve your discomfort/ worry.

Well as you describe, I would assure you definitely 100% that you are not pregnant at all.

So, just relax.

Your symptoms are associated with gastrointestinal issues.

Now, I would recommend some self-care measures and you can follow them to get some relief.

Exercise regularly. Exercise promotes normal bowel function and reduces pressure inside your colon. Try to exercise for at least 30 minutes on most days.
Eat more fiber. Fiber-rich foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains, soften waste material and help it pass more quickly through your colon.
Drink plenty of fluids. Fiber works by absorbing water and increasing the soft, bulky waste in your colon. But if you don't drink enough liquid to replace what's absorbed, fiber can be constipating.
Avoid smoking.

High-fiber foods include:

Whole-grain foods such as bread, pasta, crackers, barley, brown rice, and oatmeal.
Berries and other fruit.
Vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, spinach, carrots, asparagus, squash, and beans.
Brown rice.
Bran products, made from rice, corn, wheat, oats, barley rye, and millet.
Cooked dried peas and beans.

Also take Nexium, Mylanta Gas, Probiotics, and Metamucil.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.

Let me know if you have any further queries so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.

Waiting for your response.

I’m not pregnant and there’s no chance I can be ?
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Also can I ask about the spotting 11th and 12th ??
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Is this cause for concern
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I never spot but I heard u can spot during pregnancy

Yes, there is no chance.

No need to worry.

Negative urine pregnancy tests are assuring.

Spotting before a period is generally harmless, and there is not always an obvious cause. However, spotting is an indication of hormonal changes in the body.

I am happy to answer follow-up questions - please do get in touch with extra information or further queries and I will do my best to help you.

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Normally my period is 7 days however I was spotting on the 11th and 12th and then I had period for 7 day

In case of pregnancy, you would miss your period and get only spotting.

As you got a period of 7 days so it's assuring that you are non-pregnant.

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
How about my stomach it feels bigger than usual ? Is this normal?
Why has this happened

It is caused due to abdominal distension from excessive intestinal gas production.

Try OTC Mylanta Gas, Metamucil.

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Do you recommend taking pregnancy tests to double check. I haven’t been sexually active since 27th septI have done two yesterday and has been negative
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I haven’t had sexual intercourse however there could’ve been a risk
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
But since I’ve had two periods one in October and last week November
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Is this ok
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Also to confirm my period was period ?? this is not classed as spotting on period? ???

No need for further testing.

If you are still worrying then consider ultrasound.

See your doctor.

Try such measures in the meantime.

No pregnancy at all with a proper period just after spotting.
