My LMP was 12/11/12, took a hpt today (1/18/13) it was neg. Is it too early to take a htp?

Depends: It depends on how long your cycles normally are. If they are 28 days a test would be positive by now. If yur cycles are quite a bit longer it might be early. Typically a urine test will be positive by the day or two after the missed period. ...Read more

My LMP was 12/11/12, could I be pregnant? If so when should I take a hpt? I took one yesterday and it was negative, was it too early?

7 days after "late": The most effective time to take a hpt is 7 days after your expected menstrual cycle. A hpt could still be falsely negative if tested too early. Wait until 1/18 and test again if you have not started. In the meantime, consider taking Folic Acid supplements just in case. ...Read more

After missed period: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

I vote for: 10 weeks: Usually, prenatal ultrasound scans done while 8-11 weeks pregnant give accurate dating estimates. All dates are estimates, but that doesn't matter much in most cases (an estimate is close enough). If one's cycles are long (more than 31 days) or short (less than 25 days), be sure that is taken into account when making the estimates. ...Read more

Maybe: If your last period was 3.31 then the most likely time for your next period is about 4 weeks later. If you have had sex after 3.31 without condoms or birth control then pregnancy is possible. If your cycle does not come after the end of April check a test. ...Read more

My bf rubbed his dick on my butt. I'm on BC n don't get my period at all. So when do I take a hpt? This was 3 days ago. Is a week-10 days too early?

My bf rubbed his dick on my butt. I'm on BC n don't get my period at all. So when do I take a hpt? This was 3 days ago. Is a week-10 days too early?

3 weeks: It is generally appropriate to do a pregnancy test about 3 weeks after the episode of sex in question. However, if you are taking the contraceptive regularly and your bf did not go into your vagina, you may not need to test for pregnancy.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
