Pregnancy (Definition)

I am three days late on my period but had negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant? Last cycle was a chemical pregnancy.

I am three days late on my period but had negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant? Last cycle was a chemical pregnancy.

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. Sounds like just a late period. ...Read more

Three week late period, negative pregnancy test, no symptoms. Period came early last month, but is now late. Always used protection.. What's going on?

Three week late period, negative pregnancy test, no symptoms. Period came early last month, but is now late. Always used protection.. What's going on?

Non-ovulatory cycle: The most likely reason is you didn't ovulate in your last cycle, or that it was a late ovulation, but there's a long list of other possibilities. This is usually not to worry about, and you might wait a little longer to see when the next period starts. A doctor should be able to help you start sorting through the list. ...Read more

I'm 23 yrs old. 3 week late period then light bleeding for 3 days. Negative pregnancy test the week before. Can it still be a possible pregnancy?

I'm 23 yrs old. 3 week late period then light bleeding for 3 days. Negative pregnancy test the week before. Can it still be a possible pregnancy?

Unlikely: It sounds like you experienced an "anovulatory" cycle. When ovulation occurs, your cycle predictably happens about 14 days later. When it does not occur or is delayed, then you get a delay in your period, irregular bleeding and negative pregnancy tests. This can all be confusing. This should be discussed with your ob/gyn. ...Read more

I'm 16 days late, and I have a negative pregnancy test. What are the chances that I'm pregnant and what else could cause my late period?

6 days late period but negative pregnancy test... Im not stressing...Could i be pregnant?...

6 days late period but negative pregnancy test... Im not stressing...Could i be pregnant?...

Trust the test: A pregnancy test can detect a bhcg of about 20. Your bhcg roughly doubles every 48 hours. Let's say the first day you took it you were barely pregnant with a level of 19. 48 hours later your bhcg would be 38 which is way above the level for a urine pregnancy test to detect it. Home tests work really well and can be trusted. Repeat and if negative then you are not pregnant. ...Read more

4 days late period this month, used pull out method. Stressing out. Skipping meals. Negative pregnancy test.

4 days late period this month, used pull out method. Stressing out. Skipping meals. Negative pregnancy test.

Be calm: Not much to say, other than do not use pull out method. Way too risky as you know now. Good news is your pregnancy tests are negative. May just be late with all the stress, or could be an an-ovulatory cycle. Fingers crossed, but so far best news is negative test. Use protection, and get on bc for next time. ...Read more
