I am about one month pregnant and started feeling moderate

I am about one month pregnant and started feeling moderate pain and cramps in my mid-right abdominal/stomach.It doesn't seem to have a certain trigger, nothing makes it specifically worse or better. It was sharp, now it's dull. I left work because I was a little scared, and am not sure if I should go to an ER or clinic or not. I do not have an OBGYN set up yet, nor could I get an appointment today.

I have a paragard is that has been in since December 2016. I have been having regular periods on it until my last one, which began in April 10th. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex and he finished in me. About two or three days before my next period I experienced heavy brown spotting which gradually tapered off to just thin brown mucus and then stopped. I have taken at least 7 hpt tests of different brands and get negatives, but I have yet to begin my period. I am now 15 days late. I have not had spotting but I have been having cramping, low back pain and intermittent pain in my right shoulder. I am worried I am pregnant. I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday. Should I worry about pregnancy (ectopic or otherwise?)JA: It's hard to know for sure. The Gynecologist will figure it out.Customer: Ok......its just a regular doctor. If I am pregnant why the negatives?JA: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?Customer: No injuries. The shoulder pain is intermittent and comes and goes, along with the cramping. If I do anything to aggravate it I don't realize it.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: No. My periods have been irregular my whole life but the iud made them go like clockwork. Hence my comcern.

Second opinion] Hi I finished up my first IVF cycle, and my first beta was 16. Is this a sign of a chemical or ectopic pregnancy, or could this still be a normal pregnancy? I had some spotting 2 days ago, and have some abdominal cramps(like menstrual cramps) on/off primarily a couple inches below my umbilicus.

Ok I have another embarrassing question... I had a 3 day

Ok I have another embarrassing question... I had a 3 day embryo transfer(2 embryos) 4 days ago and have followed all of the restrictions but a couple nights ago I think I had an orgasm while I was sleeping. Would this cause an ectopic pregnancy? I've felt light menstrual like cramps the last couple days here and there and don't know if I inadvertently did some harm or this is unrelated. Sorry again for the awkward question but have been worrying and not comfortable asking my RE!

I am 49 and have always had pretty regular periods lasting 4

I am 49 and have always had pretty regular periods lasting 4 or 5 days. Last month i missed a period, and this month my period started 9 days ago and has been heavy flow. I am traveling with my daughter and I am getting worried because it is not stopping - this is day 9 and I have heavy flow (some clotting) with no sign of stopping. I am not having any particular pains or cramping. Because I am traveling I can't go see my regular doctor and I am just wondering if I need to go in to an ER or try to get some local OB appointment (I had a previous bad experience with an undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy so I am nervous there might be some problem - but then I think maybe it is just menapause .JA: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?Customer: no - sorryJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: no - I am generally very healthy and my periods have always been pretty regular
