I took a pregnancy test and it said negative but I'm four days late?

Repeat test: If you had sex since your last period, you may wish to repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. 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 an IUD.

Home pregnancy tests: You have a common question. Tests used by labs are basically the same as your home test. If there is any advantage, it is that they can "spin" the urine which concentrates the it (& hormone) and may show a very early positive test better. But if you do the test with first morning urine it is very accurate. A quantitative blood HCG level at your doctor will confirm test and your dates. Good luck! ...Read more

A reliable test: Home pregnancy tests are really very good. To improve their accuracy, use a first in the morning urine and if you think you might be pregnant but get a negative, wait a few days before checking again. At 48 years old, however, missing a period is more likely about nearing menopause than about pregnancy. ...Read more

Had a d and e surgical abortion exactly four weeks from today can I take a pregnancy test? If so how accurate would the results be?

Had a d and e surgical abortion exactly four weeks from today can I take a pregnancy test? If so how accurate would the results be?

Need more info: Unless you had unprotected sex a week after the procedure, it would be too early to take the test. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
