I took a pregnacy and an ovulation test today both negative. ; i'm a week late can I still be pregnant?

Unlikely.: If you took a home pregnancy test and it was negative, it is unlikely you are pregnant. It is possible it was a faulty test, but that is why they often come in packs of three. The ovulation test is not a test of pregnancy, it is designed to see if you are ovulating, which occurs in the middle of your cycle. There was no reason to use that at this time in your cycle. ...Read more

If i experience pain during ovulation, is that still the good day to try to be pregnant? Cause relations are painful at this moment!

Fertile: If you know when you ovulate, this is helpful in getting pregnant. The egg lasts about one day and sperm can survive 3to5 days. Try planning intercourse just before ovulation if this is less painful. Your obgyn can give you the best advice. ...Read more

I do ovulate. I know this because I take my temp everyday and also use ovulation tests. Still can't get pregnant after 1 year. What's wrong?

Many factors: There are many factors that need to occur for a pregnancy to take place. Even if both you and your partner are perfectly healthy it can come down to timing. Since it has been a year of trying without a pregnancy, I would recommend you and your partner follow up with a reproductive endocrinologist. They will make sure the anatomy and hormones are in working order. ...Read more

Can you still get pregnant if you take plan b while ovulation?

If a precum come inside me a day before ovulation, what are the chances of being pregnant? i'm 17 and still virgin.

Not zero!: The chance of pregnancy exists, what do the odds matter, if you did get pregnant? If this just happened (within 5 days from unprotected sex) consider Plan B. See http://ec.princeton.edu/pills/plan-b.html. You are definitely at risk for a sexually transmitted infection. Get checked. Practice safe sex and protect yourself from now on! ...Read more
