My period is due in 1 day (tomorrow), no period pains and all pregnancy symptoms. Negative pregnancy test 3 days ago, was it too early to test?

My period is due in 1 day (tomorrow), no period pains and all pregnancy symptoms. Negative pregnancy test 3 days ago, was it too early to test?

Too early to test: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two 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. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Period 5 days late. 1 positive and 3 negative pregnancy tests. Quite bad cramping similar to period pains but worse and in back hips a nd thighs also.

Blood test: If the negative results were seen after the positive result, at five days after missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. For confirmation, you should get a blood test for HCG level. 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

I'm 9 days late on my period and i'm having all my period pains but i'm  not bleed. And i done a pregnancy test and it was negative. I have IBS sewell?

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. Sounds like just a late period. ...Read more

Missed period: Although brown discharge might contain old blood - can't say if this is the start of your period. If you don't have a period for 4 months and were previously regular- that warrants medical evaluation. Take care. ...Read more

Can lower back pains, and white sticky discharge be a sign of pregnancy. I'm suppose to get my period tomorrow?

Can lower back pains, and white sticky discharge be a sign of pregnancy. I'm suppose to get my period tomorrow?

Possibly,nonspecific: In general pregnancy is subject to many symptoms and experiences. Discharge and back pain are certainly on the list, but not high on that list. The good news is that most over the counter pregnancy tests are so sensitive these days that you would likely already have a positive test if your period is "due" tomorrow. Check and enjoy the results. Pain can also be dangerous. Check it out. ...Read more
