In meantime, start taking prenatal vitamins (contains extra folate (folic acid) to lower risk for neural tube defects) when you decide to try to conceive. ...Read more

This phase of your cycle could be off by a day or two in either direction. Second of all, an over the counter pregnancy test may not be accurate until 2 weeks after conception. So either way, it may be too soon to tell. Good luck! ...Read more

Late periods: It's hard to say why, but sometimes we are just late for our period. Even if it's never happened before, it could happen now. Things like medications, stress, travel, changes in your weight, can all cause a late period. If your pregnancy test is negative, i wouldn't worry. If you are >1 month late, see your gyn doc for a check up. S/he might order some hormone tests and maybe an ultrasound. ...Read more

Take a Step Back: Wow. Why would you be spending money on a test that you already know will be negative. Pregnancy tests are not valid until about fourteen days after intercourse or after one misses a period.
