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

I have regular on time periods. This month it was 3 days late. Then light bleeding for 2 1/2 days now nothing. Could this be early pregnancy? I've been bloated Fuller breasts and a little nauseous.

The simplest way to figure this out is to do a home pregnancy test after 1 more week. The test result will probably be negative in this particular case. ...Read more
