Pregnant? Worried.

I had my last period July 18 but it was light & only lasted 3 days so not like normal. I had surgery on my gallbladder & I'm wondering if maybe that messed up my cycle? I took a test Fri morn and it was negative..maybe it was too early to test? I'm thinking about doing another one after work today. I've got some of the symptoms. I've been extremely tired lately, eating a lot, peeing a lot etc. But I don't have sore breasts which I've heard is common. Yest I had a white milky type discharge too and I've heard that can be a sign of pregnancy. Any help would be appreciative! Thanks!

There are a lot of things that can throw off your cycle. If you still haven't had your period, yiu should test again soon. Good luck.

I took another test today and it was negative. I'm going to wait a few days and try again before going to the doctor. Idk what's going on. My cycle is usally 28 days, where as I have my period inbetween the 21-28 days. Anywhere in there for about 5 days. Yeah I'm late. And I was pretty much recovered from surgery after a week so I don't thinj that would affect it? Not sure.

Hi emma0921,

I don't think it would have been too early to test on the 17th of this month (that is, if your cycle is around 28 days). Is your period now late? If so, I think I'd recommend testing again (and possibly following up with your doctor if it is still negative). I'm really not sure if surgery would affect your cycle, but it sure does seem possible. Being sick and experiencing stress can cause your cycle to be a bit off so it seems to me that a medical procedure could as well.

Some of the symptoms you are describing do sound like early pregnancy signs, but they could be attributed to other things as well. Here's a good article about the signs of pregnancy:
