5 weeks since last period on 3/8/15. Backache, sore boobs, bloated. Negative urine test. Could I still be pregnant?

Unlikely: If you did the test correctly and it was negative at 5 weeks after a missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. You may repeat the test. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or IUD.

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

5 weeks since my last period can a pregnancy test be accurate if taken?

5 weeks since my last period can a pregnancy test be accurate if taken?

Yes: At "5 weeks since your last normal period", most urine pregnancy tests performed on a morning first-urine voiding will be reasonably accurate. False positive and false negative results are possible depending on the test. A blood betaHCG pregnancy test will usually be accurate if performed 10 to 12 days after fertilization and is more reliable. False positive or false negative results are rarer. ...Read more

My period normally last for five days but for my last period on the day it was to finish it just became heavier than normal. Adding two extra days?

It happens sometimes: Many women have occasional variation of their mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a heavier period, a lighter period, a longer or shorter period, or even a missed period. Having one or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem, but a visit to one’s primary care or Ob-Gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

I'm five days late for my period and I haven't had vaginal sex since way before my last period. I did stop taking the pill as of last month though.

On "inactive" pills: The next period, and each period after that, will be on the inactive (placebo pills) pills that contain no hormones. To make the birth control pills work, one has to take them correctly. Otherwise, there can be more spotting or breath-through bleeding, which can look confusing. So, take one pill a day, without missing any, and periods will come on the placebo pills (next cycle, if not this month). ...Read more

Yes, you used a: Back up contraceptive long enough. Many women stop having periods while they're on the Depo shot, so this is to be expected. However, I wouldn't expect you to have vaginal pain. I suggest you follow up with your doctor about this. Best wishes. Dr. Anne. ...Read more

What can cause a false negative home Preg test (clear blue digital) at 7 weeks since last period? Is it common? Bout 40 days since sex

False positive preg: The main way one can get a false positive pregnancy test is very dilute urine. If you use your first morning urine specimen to test for pregnancy, it should be accurate after 7 days post intercourse. If it is 40 days since intercourse, you may have just skipped a period and are not pregnant. You can confirm this with a blood pregnancy test to be sure. ...Read more
