I am three days late on my period but had negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant? Last cycle was a chemical pregnancy.

I am three days late on my period but had negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant? Last cycle was a chemical pregnancy.

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 have already had a period, but I am spotting a week before my next period is due. Negative pregnancy test. Can a blood test tell if pregnant now?

If my pregnancy test was negative then came back positive a couple hours later could I be pregnant?

Yes: Very early in pregnancy, the level of HCG (pregnancy hormone) in your urine is at the edge of the sensitivity of the test. At this point, due to manufacturing differences, one test might be negative and another positive. Most likely you are pregnant. Test again in a week to be sure or see your doc for a blood pregnancy test. Best wishes! ...Read more
