I have had spotting two weeks after my period; not sure if I have been ovulating or not. I have not had any other symptoms. Am I pregnant?

If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
