I'm 4 days late with my period I took a pregnancy test a week before it said negative can I be pregnant even if the test say negative. HELP?

If tested too early.: Can retest in 4 days. A urine pregnancy test done correctly will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) 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 therefore lead to a repeat test. If truly pregnant, the retest should be positive. ...Read more

I have had light bleeding for 14 days completely different to a period can I be pregnant even if test is negative?

It is possible: I would recommend repeating the pregnancy test, preferably with a blood test, in a few days. Are you trying to conceive? Are you on birth control pills or using some other method.? A blood test can also determine whether you have ovulated and help sort out what's going on. ...Read more

Can I be pregnant even if a home pregnancy test was negative?

Can I be pregnant even if a home pregnancy test was negative?

Maybe: If you have regular periods and if you tested sufficiently late in the cycle, it wouldn't be very likely because the tests are mostly reliable. Otoh if you tested early or cycles are unpredictable it's definitely a chance. I'd suggest testing again in a day or two before taking too many other steps. ...Read more

  My Period is 6 days late and I wanted to know if I could be pregnant even if the test is negative?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Is it possible to have pregnancy symptoms when the test is negative?

Is it possible to have pregnancy symptoms when the test is negative?

Absolutely: Pregnancy symptoms are non-specific. This means something else could be going on other than pregnancy. Fatigue, breast tenderness, "morning sickness" could all be due a variety of other causes, most of which will resolve with time. Pregnancy tests are also not perfect. If symptoms persist see your OB for a pregnancy blood test. ...Read more

I have been on bc for 3 year. I had a period on 7/31 & again on 8/11. I have yet to have one this month. Could i be pregnant even tho test came back neg?

I have been on bc for 3 year. I had a period on 7/31 & again on 8/11. I have yet to have one this month. Could i be pregnant even tho test came back neg?

You are not pregnant: Just because a period is delayed does not mean it is pregnancy. Especially when one is stable and using birth control properly. I would not waste any more money on testing. Now if there is more to the story or if the bcp were not properly used this month then we may have more to discuss. ...Read more

I am on the mini pill, having pregnancy symptoms. I have irregular periods. The test is negative 2.5 weeks after the incident. Should this be a long enough time frame to be accurate?

I am on the mini pill, having pregnancy symptoms. I have irregular periods. The test is negative 2.5 weeks after the incident. Should this be a  long enough time frame to be accurate?

No: Pregnancy tests are accurate 4wks after last menstrual period, not 2.5wks after incident. Minipill is tricky b/c it requires precise timing to be effective. If you wait until 27hrs after previous day's pill, you might not be protected.
