Can stress cause your cycle to stop? Almost 3 weeks late and negative pregnancy test results. Will an eptopic sp? Pregnancy cause negative results?

All can be true: Urine pregnancy tests are rarely negative if you are pregnant. And they are not specific for what type of pregnancy (normal, not normal, ectopic, etc).

Would smoking Meth on a reg basis cause my Hgc levels to stay low enough to give a negative result on a pregnancy test?

Would smoking Meth on a reg basis cause my Hgc levels to stay low enough to give a negative result on a pregnancy test?

No: Please stop smoking meth especially if you want to become a mother. Some of what you have heard from "drug educators" about other recreational drugs is not true, but the warnings about meth are. You'll rip or cut your skin loose before you die. Why not go clean, get better friends, and when you are ready, head a wonderful family instead? Somebody loves you -- do this for them if not yourself. ...Read more

If I had sex took a pregnancy test and the result was negative then I got my period and now my period is very late, what could be the cause of that?

Can I be Pregnant?: Remember, viable pregnancy stops vaginal bleeding. Thus, having a period represents physical proof that one is not pregnant.

Delayed or missed periods are very common in the young. They are usually caused by extremes: extreme dieting, extreme exercise, obesity, poor nutrition, extreme stress and other things that cause hormonal fluctuations. ...Read more

My period delay for 5 days and I did pregnancy test 2 days ago with negative result is this delay normal? Is orgasm cause this delay and how many days

Here are some. ..: This might be answered in a Q written in a different phrasing & wording. Again, orgasm would not alter the timing of period. Do HPT in a week after missing period and repeat it in another week if the 1st test is (-) or still in doubt. More? Seek pro-evaluation and counseling timely. ...Read more

Can birth control cause a pregnancy to miss read the results I have the signs of pregnancy but when I took the pregnancy test it showed me I wasn't then someone told me their doctor said birth control can make a pregnancy test miss read sometimes

I: I am not aware of any type of birth control pills causing a false pregnancy test (negative or positive). The hormone that is detected in pregnancy tests is specific for pregnancy only and birth control does not interact with it in any way.

Had sex without precautions past month, does pre-ejaculation can cause pregnancy? I missed my periods on 20th, pregnancy test result negative

If you usually have a period every month and you've missed your period, you might want to repeat the pregnancy test just to be sure or see your doc to have a blood pregnancy test.

Could severe dehydration affect the results of a home pregnancy test? And could severe dehydration also cause a missed period?

Could severe dehydration affect the results of a home pregnancy test? And could severe dehydration also cause a missed period?

Severe dehydration?: Please forgive my frankness. Who told you that you had "severe dehydration? " If you are up and about and wondering if you are pregnant, you are going to get something to drink before dehydration becomes severe. "Severe dehydration" kills neglected children and disabled people. Look for some other explanation for your missed period; I hope it is what you want. ...Read more

Been having vaginal bleeding for 27 days straight what can be the cause? I'm on birth control, pregnancy test negative, waiting on sonogram results

Been having vaginal bleeding for 27 days straight what can be the cause? I'm on birth control, pregnancy test negative, waiting on sonogram results

Hormonal abnormality: The causes of dysfunctional uterine bleeding are either hormonal or structural (like a fibroid). At your age I would strongly suspect a hormonal problem and not a fibroid. The ultrasound will rule out (or in) the structural abnormality. Do you have PCOS? If the ultrasound is normal your doctor will likely run multiple tests to determine what the hormonal problem is. ...Read more

Hi, can levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) ed cause a false positive pregnancy test result or say I'm not pregnant when I actually am? Thank you

Neither one: Levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) would not cause a false positive pregnancy test, nor would it mask a pregnancy (i.e., you are pregnant, but because of levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) the pregnancy test comes back negative). ...Read more

A week late period with 3 negative pregnancy test results. Pain at the tip of my clitoris. Sore between my vagina and an anus. What could be the cause?
