Ok so here's my story november 2009 i had a miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy together, i was taken into hospital not even knowing i was even pregnant, was told by an a&e nurse that i was she told me she thought i had, had a miscarriage and that was that or so me and my partner thought. I had an appointment at my local doctors who told me i was still pregnant and had to go for a scan (as you can imagine myself and my partner were a bit excited) had the scan and they couldnt see anything then had an internal scan and still couldnt see anything, we were then sent home and told to go back a few days later to see what was happening. we went we had the scan then we were told it was ectopic and that my hormone levels were rising not one person actually sat us down and explained what was going on. we were then finally told that they were taking me down to theater just to see what was going on but still nobody really told us anything when i came round i had a nurse come and see me and basically tell me that my baby was so close to being in my womb (not what i wanted to hear obviously) still didnt really know what had happened. In the morning i was told that i had to get out of bed so the bed that i was in could be changed this was at 7-8 am i asked a nurse what was happening but never really got an answer so i asked when i would be going home as i had my daughter to get back to and i was told that i could go when i wanted i left the hospital with no pain killer or explaintion of what surgry i had, had or what stiches i had. sorry for boring you all with my story but me and my partner have been trying for a baby now for the past year and i cant get any answers out of anybody

I have not taken the pill for about 5-6 weeks, and i bled for 5 days amost straight away as normal (starting 12th Aug - 17th Aug). Since then me and my boyfriend have been trying to convieve every 2-3 days. My period was due on the 9th and is now 4 days late and i have taken a pregnancy test a week ago it was neg, maybe i took it too early or is my period being late a side effect of coming off the pill? so confused!! another factor is i took 4weeks off the pill then had a break instead of the normal 3 weeks on pill then 7 day break. Will this effect my cycle and make it 35 days instead of 28? dont want to waste time and money on another test until i know when my period is properly due can anyone help??
