Could i still be pregnant, with a negative test 25 days after intercourse?  I have a very irregular period, and am having symptoms.

Irregular menses: You haven't given enough details. So you had a negative pregnancy test 25 days after intercourse, presumably unprotected. However, you didn't mention your last menstrual period. So yes it's possible to be pregnant if your negative test was a while back. If you're concerned, take another test when at least 4wks have elapsed since last menstrual period. ...Read more

Pregnancy unlikely: Pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A 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 negative result may be due to testing too early such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more

Cramping and period late but started today... Light pink, still cramping. Not a lot of flow. Could i be pregnant after negative blood test a week ago?

Depends...: Depends on the type of blood test. If you had a quantitative hcg, your doctor would see a number/ amount of pregnancy hormone in your blood.

If you had a qualitative hcg, the lab will report equivocals as negative. ...Read more
