Take a test: Don't guess. Take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. Use over the counter Plan B if intercourse was within 72 hours. ...Read more

Minimal: If you used Plan B within 2 hours, your risk for pregnancy is quite low, but no zero. A home pregnancy test can be positive within 7 days of fertilization. Consider utilizing a form of birth control to be protected during sex in the future without needing to resort to plan b.

I'M 8 days late but I took a hpt a day before my missed period & It came out Negative & I Haven't Taken 1 since then can I Be Pregnant?

Maybe. Maybe not.: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), 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, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

I had unprotected anal sex a week before my missed period. Is there a chance that im pregnant?

Unlikely: Unless the ejaculate was outside the anus its unlikely that this could have fertilized. Even outside anus is unlikely but to be safe.....have a pregnancy test....(you can use an OTC kit in another week or two. Hope this helps Good luck ...Read more

Anovulation: You could be having an anovulatory cycle. These are cycles in which the ovary fails to release the egg. This alters hormonal levels and disrupts the cycle. Call your doctor. ...Read more

Repeat HPT: Repeat the home pregnancy test or have blood drawn to determine if you are pregnant. The thick white discharge could very well be a yeast infection. Have your doc or a gyn check it out and determine if it needs to be treated. Good Luck ...Read more
