Took pregnancy test results neg. (4 of them) I've gained 46lbs in a month no cycle for november, could I be? I also look 4 to 5months.

Took pregnancy test results neg. (4 of them) I've gained 46lbs in a month no cycle for november, could I be? I also look 4 to 5months.

46: 46 pounds in one month is very extreme. The average weight gain for pregnancy is 25-30 pounds for the whole pregnancy. If four tests have been neg, then you are likely not pregnant.
On the other hand the weight gain is worrisome. It could be fluid which could indicate a heart/circulatory problem, uterine or other gynelogical isse like a tumor; also hormonal issues (i.E thyroid) and diabetes need to be ruled out.
Please see your doctor right away for a medical evaluation and treatment.
Good luck. ...Read more

What can affect home pregnancy test results?

What can affect home pregnancy test results?

Testing too soon: Main thing is timing-it takes time (up to 2 wks) for your urinary levels of HCG to get elevated enough to be detected. Over-the-counter tests aren't always as sensitive as tests at your doctor's office, but even those usually take at least a few days after you're late to turn positive. Recheck 1-2 weeks later if you're late for your period & suspect you might be pregnant. ...Read more
