Took blood pregnancy test. Results were <1 mIU/mL. Pregnant or not pregnant?

Took blood pregnancy test. Results were <1 mIU/mL. Pregnant or not pregnant?

Probably "not": A blood betaHCG of < 1mIU/ml is usually considered to be a negative pregnancy test particularly if your period is delayed by 10 to 14 days and the test is performed by a reliable lab....Therefore you are probably not pregnant. Keep in mind that any test can be wrong or inaccurate; fortunately there are very few very rare cases of "false negative blood pregnancy tests." You may want to repeat it. ...Read more

My periods are 3 weeks late. Home pregnancy test is negative and ultrasound also negative. What is wrong? Can I be pregnant?

My periods are 3 weeks late. Home pregnancy test is negative and ultrasound also negative. What is wrong? Can I be pregnant?

Unlikely: If the pregnancy test was done correctly and it was negative at three weeks after a missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. 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.

If my ovulation tests are negative could i be pregnant?

Ovulation: A surge in lh hormone levels matures and ovulates (releases) the egg 24 - 48 hours later. Signs that confirm ovulation are change in cervical mucus or some abdominal discomfort or spotting due to the change in hormone levels. If the test is negative, you can still ovulate but may need a more sensitive test. If you have irregular cycles, your test could be negative because you aren't ovulating. ...Read more

Pregnant. Blood test is negative, found fibroids on ultrasound. Having pregnant symptoms since september, and baby kicks. What other test prove pregnancy?

Pregnant. Blood test is negative, found fibroids on ultrasound. Having pregnant symptoms since september, and baby kicks. What other test prove pregnancy?

Probably not.: If your blood test is negative, and there is no baby in your uterus, then you are probably not pregnant. If you are, it would be a dangerous ectopic pregnancy but a repeat blood test should be enough to prove that you are not. Could the baby "kicks" be stool in the bowel or bowel gas moving around instead? Fibroids can make you feel full or pregnant. You should talk to your provider. ...Read more

If your pregnant  test is negative and you have the symptoms can you be pregnant? I'm 14 days late i did 2 pregnants test they came 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. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. 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

Can blood test show if I am pregnant. If urine test showed negative?

Can blood test show if I am pregnant. If urine test showed negative?

Possibly.: These tests are good, but like all tests, can have variations. Blood tests can detect this shortly after implantation as well as urine tests that are sensitive, but less sensitive blood and urine tests need 3-4 more days to become positive. No two people are alike either, so that can cause variations also. Time and a specific quantitative test can best confirm this, so see your dr. To be sure. ...Read more

Depends: If you had unprotected sex since you last period and missed a period, you could be pregnant. If the blood test was done after a missed period and it was negative, you are unlikely to be pregnant. You should read the instructions for the urine test carefully and read the result within the prescribed time frame. Use first morning urine and follow the 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. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Back to school: A pregnant female's body does not have a chemical or physical connection with a new fetus until about fourteen days after conception. Thus true early pregnancy has no physical symptoms. Any symptoms prior to this are not pregnancy. A fetus that is newly conceived is smaller than a pinpoint. It would not be seen on u/s. You tested way too soon. ...Read more
