A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Ovulation day was anywhere from 9/16-18 I am now having period like cramps & also feeling very bloated could i be preg. How soon can I test b4 period?

How soon.: There are some home pregnancy tests that report to be effective as 6 days into a pregnancy. So that would be around 9/24 or so. But, it might be smart to simply wait until your next period is due. That way you will not have the anxiety (and expense) of multiple tests and wondering if you're having false negative tests. Good luck.

Oh, and if you're not. Start prenatal vitamins! ...Read more

It happens anytime: You can get pregnant at any time during your cycle. The chance is less right before/during/after period, but still happens. Best chance is around time of ovulation--often midcycle for most women. Many women have some light period/bleeding during the first month or two after becoming pregnant. It is very easy and fast to do a home pregnancy test--which is highly accurate. So, check a hpt. Good luck. ...Read more

These can also be symptoms of stress and anxiety if you are worried about the prospect of being pregnant. Usually you don't have to use the bathroom more in the first days of pregnancy, that is usually after growth of the fetus. Get checked for a urinary tract infection. ...Read more
