I hav since been in bed with EVERY prego symptom imaginable plus some..except I still get what seems 2 b a regularly timed m/s..but the 1st after possible conception was awful... clots were crazy & the odor was nothing words cld describe..I now hav shorter and seriously lighter cycles... so much 2 the story but hav been intensely sick..hit the ER 1 time..but make u wait & rush u out..they did an u/s on empty bladder & tech even said "i can't even see anything cuz there is so much gas"... every prego symptom was & is there but under stress I saw It all in hindsight after trying 2 figure out why I am so sick..can I hav gotten a false negative hcg blood result due 2 being on this med & clonazepam 4 ten yrs... its said promethazine can affect hcg results but can't 4 the life of me find out exactly how much it messes the numbers..:thanks 2 anyone who can help... sorry so long... trust me the story & symptoms cld hav been a book... this Is my very condensed version
It's very interesting ... and I'm sorry I don't know how much promethazine can affect hcg levels. If your blood test has come back negative I would say you weren't pregnant. But please discuss with your doctor again.
