    Morning guys, i'm 9 weeks tomorrow and developed a really severe tummy pain at half 6 this morning.. I've not had anything like this so far.. Would you try and get in with the gp or go to a&e? The thing that's concerning me is that's it's isolated to my right side and has been pretty persistent, not coming in waves like a dodgy tummy would.. No bleeding yet but i'm fearing the worst :(

    Could you try ring your midwife and see what they say if that fails i would say a&e as a gp is unlikely to do anything other than examin you and then refer you on further if they are concerned and you need further investigations. You are more likely to get answers straight away from a&e and the specialists. Xx

    That's what I was thinking Kimmy.. If the gp leads to a referal surely it's just wasting time.. I'm at the walk in now which is at the main hospital hoping that they'll refer me straight onto the early preg unit.. Midwife wasn't able to do anything/refer me :( 4 hour wait now

    Have you had a scan,Kate?

    Could it be an ectopic? Best to go to the doctors immediately.

    Hope all is ok

    Well i'm absolutely gutted. Thankfully wasn't my appendix so no surgery but they found abnormalities with my tubes and have diagnosed pid. Could have been caused by any bacterial infection but they threw chlamydia in there and now I just feel dirty, and incredibly anxious about any long term effects it could have on my fertility. Very, very low today and feeling so guilty :(

    OK so I've not had an experience quite like yours but I've seen two of your posts and no one's replied. I'm no expert but here's my opinion.

    I once had an issue with my tubes in pregnancy and they mentioned the dreaded chlamydia it wasn't for me me and oh have been each others first and almost only for 13 years. She dismissed the idea after that and went looking at other reasons. So it's possible that it's not an sti it's just their first goto reason.

    Second have you ever used the coil? That's a big cause of pid. They will mention sti''s as well because they won't know for sure what infection you have got until swabs come back they test for all sorts including sti''s of course when given that news you just listen to the worst option and forget about the possibly more logical non scary thoughts! Trust me. I've been through lots of tests for other health issues and it's always the scary ones that stick and in my experience it rarely is the worst case scenerio.

    I don't know much about your sexual history obviously but pid can occur in monogamous long term relationships the problem with that is you keep passing it back and forth between you so you both need to be tested and treated... and act like nuns for a while!

    Thirdly... the "guilt and dirty" your feeling... assuming the wirst and it is an sti I totally get it I would probably feel the same.... however think of it this way. You didn't ask for it and sure you may have been more careful I don't know. Again I'm not an expert in your love life... but all your guilty of is trusting someone was clean if you suspected they weren't you wouldn't have willingly done anything. Your no more guilty or dirty than if you caught a cold. It's an infection it's what they do infect. They don't give you a choice! Your only feeling guilty due to the way it gets transfered. And so you're not a Virgin.... big woop! You got unlucky.

    Yes it's not ideal that your pregnant and the guilt maybe on what happens to bubs and beyond but you can't have changed what you didn't know the only reason to feel guilty is if you didn't do all you can to get both you and your oh sorted out now. Im not sure what came first with my last mc but one complication was that I caught a cold and my immune system went crazy and attacked my heart it possibly killed my baby too. I will never know but I can't hold onto that guilt. If I had known about my condition earlier then maybe I could have stopped it. But I can't change the past I can only affect the future. Whenever I feel guilty about anything I just change the attitude you have to own it and deal with it in the way that's most productive to sorting everything out!

    Sorry I know im not experienced in what your going through and I hope someone with better knowledge come's and helps. But I couldn't read and run when your sat there feeling alone scared and needing someone to talk to.
