Hi, After showing some possible pg symptoms, I wasn't sure if I was pg or not but the pg test I did over a week ago came back neg. Then, few days later, my lower back pain started getting worse and it spread all round to my sides and tummy, like 360 degrees. All I can liken it to is the first stages of labour, it was very similar to that but obviously not as painful as full on labour! An hour after that I started bleeding deep red blood for a day. I put a towel on but hardly any reached the pad, it was just when I wiped for the most part. Right before the bleeding started I had (sorry for tmi) a translucent stretchy discharge tinged quite heavily with light brown when I wiped. It felt like my lower body muscles were tensing then releasing and was quite painful. This is not a normal period for me so could I possibly have had a chemical? Or just a freak monthly? Prior to this I was feeling nauseous, headaches, very tired, mild cramping and lower right side tummy pain. Still have couple of these but I'm thinking I may have intestinal problems. I heard a chemical can be shorter than a normal period, I'm normally on for longer than a day. Thank you for any thoughts.
