Jen, I hope all is well for you. I just want to say that the 'Clinic' I went to [I]was[/I] planned parenthood. And they gave me the wrong info (about being able to have sex so soon after starting bc) and they were quite rude and didn't act interested when I called and asked them about having a possible miscarriage. They basically dismissed me and weren't concerned at all. When I went to my gyno, she was able to give me answers, even though it was about 1 1/2 weeks after this happened. If you havn't taken a pregnancy test, you should do so. My regular doctor (whom I saw the Friday before I went to my gyno) wouldn't prescribe me any allergy medicine because I might "still be pregnant" (in his words). I said, "well I've taken tests, and they've been negative, should I get a blood test?" He proceeded to tell me how some women have two uteruses, etc. and that they bleed throughout their pregnancy until the last months when the baby is too big and squishes the other uterus. Asked gyno, she assured me that I didn't have two uteruses, but she also wants me to wait until the end of the month to start my new bc because she "want(s) to make sure [I'm] not pregnant." I asked about a blood test, and she said she's pretty sure I passed everything, but that I should wait "just in case, to be sure". If you have one, and you can take yourself, you should go to a real gyno. Not that the ones at planned parenthood aren't real, but they see so many women it seems like they become immune and numb to people and don't really connect with them and level with them like they should. BUT, thats just my own experience. I have to say, I am 22 and no longer live at home, but I was scared to death to talk to my mom about having a miscarriage. I did, and I was relieved, my mom told me that she has had 2 miscarriages in the last 10 years, and that one miscarriage was of twins. She was more understanding than I thought she would be (she pays for my school, and is very adamant about me finishing before I have kids, so I thought she would yell at me about being irresponsible). I think she was happy that I trusted her enough to tell her. Good luck!
