Can uricalm or Azo effect the outcome of a home pregnancy test? Ijust started antibiotics today for a UTI but my period is 3 days late.

Can uricalm or Azo effect the outcome of a home pregnancy test? Ijust started antibiotics today for a UTI but my period is 3 days late.

No.: Home pregnancy tests detect the presence of beta-hcg, a hormone produced during pregnancy. Medications would not alter the level of this hormone. Menstrual cycle length can vary by a few days from month to month. If your period still has not come in the next couple days, you might consider making a doctor's appointment to see what's going on. ...Read more

Home pregnancy tests: I do not mean to start an argument, but if you are pregnant and a certain amount of time has passed since you became pregnant almost every single home pregnancy product should work to pick up this important fact. The fda would not allow these tests to be offered if they did not work.

Also a doctor would not lie to you if they did testing and your urine had signs of infection. ...Read more

Is it too early to take a rite aid at home pregnancy test? As of today my period is three days late

Is it too early to take a rite aid at home pregnancy test? As of today my period is three days late

No, not at all.: A pregnancy test may be (+) test as early as 7-10 days after the fertile period (mid cycle). You're still very young. If you're having sex but don't want to get pregnant, you should consider a very reliable form of contraception such as an IUD or contraceptive implant. You don't need parental consent to do this, just a phone call to Planned Parenthood or your personal doctor. Best wishes. ...Read more

I am 10 days late for my period but I have taken three home pregnancy test that all have come back negative, can I still be pregnant?

Possible: 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. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: 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.

I'm three weeks late for my period. I have regular cycles. I've got changes in my body but took home pregnancy test but came out negative. Ur opinion?

No ovulation: When a period is late but the pregnancy test is negative, it usually means that you didn't ovulate (since ovulation brings on a period in 14 days). Not ovulating can also bring on symptoms of pregnancy. Not ovulating is often caused by stress, but can be from other things. It may take care of itself. Otherwise see your doctor. ...Read more

What is the probability of a home pregnancy test being a false negative when my period is 3 days late?

What is the probability of a home pregnancy test being a false negative when my period is 3 days late?

Check later, not now: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after 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. ...Read more

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more
