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

I took a negative pregnancy test , but I still have this feeling that I'm pregnant , am I testing to early ?

Test 3 wks after sex: 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

Unlikely: If you did the test correctly and it was negative 2 weeks after a missed period, it is unlikely that you are 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.

Don't panic: If you have had 5 negative pregnancy tests in the past 24 days you are not pregnant. You did not enter your age or your menstral history, however, it is not uncommon for women to experience some irregularity in their menses. This can be due to stress, extreme exercise (i.E long distance running) or anovulation. Assess over the next 1-2 cycles, if still no period, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
