Negative pregnancy test after implantation bleeding, possible?

Negative pregnancy test after implantation bleeding, possible?

Wait until due: Home pregnancy tests are not useful until perhaps a day or two before the period is due. Most implantation does not cause bleeding and most bleeding in the last half of the cycle is not from implantation. No matter how badly you want to know, there is no reason to check a pregnancy test before it is time. ...Read more

Can be too early: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine 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 positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

Implantation bleeding 2 months ago, but continues to have a 5 days period. Had a negative pregnancy test. Confused!! Did I test too early?

Implantation bleeding 2 months ago, but continues to have a 5 days period. Had a negative pregnancy test. Confused!! Did I test too early?

Not necessarily: Implantation bleeding is not a reliable sign. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Took a pregnancy test 1 day after implantation bleeding got a negative how many days do I have to wait to test again?

Testing too Early: This was, as you now know, a wasted effort and money. First, there is not such thing as implantation bleeding. This mythic thing is an internet and false 'truth'. Second, bleeding of any kind, in general, represents not being pregnant. Third, if you were pregnant it takes probably another seven days for an implanted fetus to have grown big enough to be sharing blood and possibly be testable. ...Read more

Not unusual: If your period was late, there may have been additional build up of uterine lining in that time, leading to particularly heavy period this time. You are not pregnant, so not to worry. Make sure you are getting adequate iron in your diet to have enough for your blood loss and feeding your baby. May need a temporary iron supplement. ...Read more
