Way too Soon: Yes. Of course. Why would you risk spending money and effort on testing too soon? What is going on that would make you need to get to the doctor before testing is recommended or valid? ...Read more

I have early pregnancy symptoms but a negative on a home pregnancy test. When is the best time to test?

Repeat in 2 days : 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. ...Read more

You must use condoms from start to finish to prevent pregnancy. In any case you should not be feeling pregnancy symptoms 5 days from possible conception. ...Read more

Having pregnancy type symptoms but not pregnant having periods every month sometimes early or a day late or on time but they are quite light?

Having pregnancy type symptoms but not pregnant having periods every month sometimes early or a day late or on time but they are quite light?

Periods: Skipping a period is not unusual. Other irregularities like the length of the cycle or the day of the month are also common. Few women are absolutely "regular." If you are having periods it is highly unlikely you are pregnant. For your own peace of mind a home pregnancy test should settle the issue. ...Read more

Im a week late and have symptoms of early pregnancy when would be the best time to take a pregnancy test and should I continue taking my birth control

Im a week late and have symptoms of early pregnancy when would be the best time to take a pregnancy test and should I continue taking my birth control

Take it now,,,: This would be a very good time to take it, as no period is likely pregnancy until proven otherwise. If it is positive, it would be wise to stop your birth control so it cannot interfere with the pregnancy. If it turns out to be negative, it would be wise to see your doctor to repeat the test as you still could be pregnant, and get an exam in case there is another reason for the late period. ...Read more
