How soon after unprotected sex can I take a pregnancy test? Not sure where I am in cycle. Cycle isn't normal 28 days; inconsistent.
One can wait 3 weeks: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. 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
Why can't I take a pregnancy test before my projected period date? I'm 7 days out, why would taking one now not give a correct result?
Back to health Class:
Wow. Here are the facts. The sperm impregnate the egg outside of any organ inside the pelvis. Then the egg has to travel down the fallopian tubes and then enter the uterus. It then has to land on a wall of the uterus and then implant. Then it begins to grow. While it is growing it leaks HCG hormone that then when high enough permeates into the mother's blood stream.
This process takes 2 weeks. ...Read more

Even technically pregnant until 3 weeks and you don't start producing hCG until then so could that be why my pregnancy test are negative?
I don't understand: Precisely what you are asking, but hCG is produced and detectable by 10-12 days after fertilization, which also means roughly 2-3 days before you'd expect your period in a 28-day cycle. If you test negative at this time, you are not pregnant. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative, how come it came out negative if they say the more pills u miss u can get pregnant, but I didn't?
What are your goals?: It sounds as though you were wanting to be pregnant. If so then there is no reason to be taking birth control. Missing pills makes pregnancy more likely than taking them correctly but still less likely than someone who is not on them at all. If you do not want to be pregnant consider changing birth control methods to something you do not have to do every day like an IUD ...Read more

Must read correctly: You have to read the test within the time limit given in the instructions or it's an invalid result.

Redo the test following instructions exactly, including time frame to read results. ...Read more

I had a positive pregnancy test this morning I'm someone who doesn't like to eat a lot of meet I still eat meat but I per not too. Is there anything I can eat that will give the same nutrition?
Balanced diet: Meat is not essential for a good diet. A diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains and dairy will provide adequate nutrition. To increase protein in your diet you should add tofu, beans, nuts and egg whites. I trust that you are taking pre-natal vitamins, if you were not taking these, do so asap. Keep your appointments with your OB for pre-natal checks. ...Read more

Possible: Possible changes due to pregnancy would be exceptionally subtle or there may not be any if you haven't missed your menses. Now, if you have missed your period, it is ok to use a home pregnancy test now. Maybe he has a crystal ball? Just joking. It would be highly doubtful that he was able to determine you were pregnant at this time. ...Read more
