One can wait a week: Because a woman cannot have her normal regular period and also be pregnant at the same time, either she is not pregnant or the bleeding is not her regular period. The simplest way to figure this out is to repeat a home pregnancy test after 1 or 2 weeks. There is usually no urgency, but if one must know sooner, one can get 2 blood tests a few days apart to see if her HCG level is rising or falling. ...Read more
How to find out if your pregnant? My girlfriend feels pregnant and her belly is getting bigger but the urine and blood test come back negative. We have been trying for a baby for 2 months now and can't tell what's going on?
It is prudent to involve your doctor in your journey to get pregnant. Your doctor can recommend prenatal care and supplements as well as assistance in predicting a woman's most fertile times of the month to help increase your chances of conceiving.
In the meantime, if your girlfriend has had a negative urine and blood test for the pregnancy hormone, then the pregnancy hormone was not detected. The pregnancy hormone can be detected in the urine 14 days after conception. If your girlfriend is pregnant, she will experience a missed period. Again, get your doctor involved in this journey to ensure your girlfriend's body is ready for this journey with the proper prenatal care. ...Read more
