little bit of a panic now (TMI)

Well...not sure what happened but all of the sudden I was sitting at my desk and I got a really sharp abdominal cramp. So sharp I could barely breath, couldn't stand up, or anything. I sat there for a good 5 min and then tried to make it to the washroom. As I'm leaving my desk I grabbed a tampon from my purse just in case.

(warning - TMI)
Glad I did as I had a huge gush of red blood when I got to the toilet. Now I'm in panic mode. I've only had two other early cycles, the one after I was on progesterone and one other random one a few years back. I figured there was NO way AF could be here today, but now I'm wondering is it AF? What if it's not? My friend had a tubal that started with sharp pain and bleeding a few days before AF was due.... And I'm home alone, no one to take me to hospital if something is wrong....

I don't know...is this AF? I'm so confused!! And in pain and I have no tylenol or anything....

You should call the doctor, just in case. That doesn't sound normal. KUP!

In Canada you can't call your doctor (they don't do consults/questions over the phones), at least not in Ontario where I am. All I could do is go to a walk-in clinic or the ER, both of which is hard without a car...

Ugg... I hate this. Sad

The cramping has died down but I'm probably going to worry now because that's what I do.

Eeeppp, what a scare. If it gets really bad, can you get a taxi? It could just be a bad AF, I've had those before. Sad

Yikes, that would be scary, but take a deep breath, it might just be an early AF with painful cramps. It could be a burst cyst, too, especially if it's not heavy bleeding. If it was an ectopic it would probably be too early (too small) for it to burst your tube.

How are you now? KUP! :bigarmhug:

Oh Rachael, I hope you are doing okay. Please get to the doctor ASAP. Like Mary said, it could be a cyst bursting. They hurt like H*ll. {{{HUGS}}}

Feeling better today... I really think it's AF and it just started suddenly/unexpectedly. Still really crampy but nothing as bad as it was just before I went to the washroom yesterday with that really sharp pain.

I was also looking over my tests from the last three days and those lines were there so I suspect it's a chemical. I'm really bummed. I know that bleeding can still happen if preggo, but I'm not trying to get my hopes up too much for good news on Friday. Right now I'm just focusing on getting ready to fly out Friday afternoon to see my husband again and try to enjoy my vacation coming up next week.
