Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

I am sorry about the loss of your mother.

this stress can cause you to miss your period

and can cause nausea and vomiting as well.

you are most likely seeing a light refection on the second line being the reagent line. it needs to be blue for you to be pregnant.

I'm glad you contacted your doctor.

have you had sex recently without protection which could lead you to be pregnant?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Thank you so much! The pregnancy test I took, result lines were red. I recently had sex without protection, but we both did oral sex, and finish with that before we had sex, but he did not ejaculated, while having sex.

I see

doesn't sound like you would be pregnant than

I bet you are not pregnant

I bet it is your stress and recent loss and grieving causing your missed period.

cramps can be due to hormone changes or ovarian cysts in your pelvis.
