Dear Midwife,
Hello, I just had a baby who's about a week old. When I first learned I was pregnant-3 months, I had my gallbladder taken out.

After I gave birth to my daughter I'm getting the same pains I was experiencing with my gallbladder but I have no gallbladder.

What can the pain be? Also, I noticed a foul smell in my vagina area?

Please help.

Can I Be Pregnant?

ok, i have always had an irregular menstrul since i began my cycle at 16. Me and my boyfriend have been trying to have children, but it just seems like no luck. In dec. 2008 my mensturl came on the 17th, then in Jan. 2009 it came on the 7th, but when it came on it only spotted for 3 days then went off for two, then spotted for 2 more days. Then went off. It has never done that before, and even in the past when it has spotted, it usually come on fully within the next day. I have been feeling weird lately but im not sure if its just my concious.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
My husband and I have been trying for a baby since I came off my period on the 18th of Feb 09.

Today I just went for my first ever smear test or pap test( I am 23 been married for almost 2 years no other sexual partners) The problem is I don't know if I am already pregnant, and If I am would the pap test I just had done jeopardize the potential of me being pregnant? Or does it cause no risk at all (My next period is march 11th 09)

Thank you
