A friend of mine from work recently thought she was pregnant but it turned out she wasn't. She's still having some weird symptoms though. The doctors did a pregnancy test which came back negative and she has now come on. He's referring her for an ultrasound and blood tests. What could be the problem?
She was nearly 4 weeks late for her period. She was experiencing some sickness and is still tired all the time. Her abdomen and breasts are swollen, her belly is constantly tender and occasionally her breasts too. She also has been experiencing some pains in her belly and back ache. She came on her period a couple of days ago.
The doctor has referred her for these test but not said anything about a possible cause. Obviously she's worried. Can anyone give an indication of what they might be looking for please?
Thanks in advance.
