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.

TTC for 2 months now and still having a negative pregnancy test. What could this be because of ?

Game plan: Length of your cycle: Day 1 is when there are first signs of coming on a period, count the days until the next period starts. The number of days of bleeding does not matter. Normal cycles are 25 - 32 days. You ovulate between 32 - 14 = 18 and 25 - 14 = 11. Sperm survives for 4+ days. Since you won't know how long your ongoing cycle will be, have sex on days 7, 9, 11, 13. Good luck. ...Read more
