I believe I'm preg but keep getting neg test. I have all the early symptoms of being preg. Last pregnancy I couldn't get a + until I was 9wks. Why?

I believe I'm preg but keep getting neg test. I have all the early symptoms of being preg. Last pregnancy I couldn't get a + until I was 9wks. Why?

Huh!: That actually doesn't make any sense to me. You should be showing positive long before that on UPTs. What happens if you get a blood test for pregnancy? Maybe you drink lots of water and dilute out your urine? Maybe you don't excrete the hormone? Maybe you're on dialysis? Maybe someone else has a better answer. ...Read more

Had very early pregnancy that ended at 4w5d, all symptoms stopped, still haven't bled. How long without bleeding until I should worry. 2 weeks late now

Had very early pregnancy that ended at 4w5d, all symptoms stopped, still haven't bled. How long without bleeding until I should worry. 2 weeks late now

Uncertain: If your pregnancy ended at 4 weeks 5 days from last period, that means the embryo was only 2 weeks along in its development. It might have been resorbed without any bleeding. I have two questions. 1: how did you know you miscarried? 2. Is it possible you are still pregnant? I would recommend another pregnancy test. If it's negative you should have another period in about two weeks. ...Read more

Pseudocyesis: The endocrine system tricks the body into appearing pregnant and the mind into perhaps believing the person is pregnant. Even men can get it. Queen mary of england suffered from this for months with tragic results. If this is happened to you, you have my sympathy; your physician will be able to help you, and it will not prevent you from eventually being a real mother. ...Read more

My face has been flushed for the past few days now; and I supposedly ovulated last Sunday. Could this be an early pregnancy symptom?

Wait and see: Luckily in today’s world pregnancy tests are so accurate that one does not have to wait long to find out. A pregnancy test should be accurate about 2 weeks after ovulation. You can take test next week and find out. Obgyns would not want to “guess” about pregnancy status based on a a very nonspecific symptoms such as facial flushing. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle came early and it lasted for 4 light days. It's normally heavy and last 7days. Been experiencing pregnancy symptoms as well.

Do a pregnancy test: Do not guess or wonder, the test will confirm or negative the pregnancy. To be on the safe side, if the test is negative, and if you still have symptoms, then repeat the test in a week. With 2 negative reliable tests a week apart, you are not pregnant. However, if still not convinced you may request a blood test-hCG. If want to avoid pregnancy then use consistent contraception ...Read more

Can do a preg. Test: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (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

Last period jan 31. Pregnancy symptoms and boyfriend says that sex is different. Took a pregnancy test last week came back negative. Too early?

Regular periods?: If you have regular periods every 28-30 days then you should have had one by now and a pregnancy test should have returned positive. You could always wait another week and try another pregnancy test. Sounds also like your boyfriend thinks sex is different because he's nervous about pregnancy risk. Talk about birth control together. It's not you. It's him. ...Read more

Doubt pregnant: Typically a test will be positive by 3 weeks from the episode of unprotected sex. It has been that long already, so I doubt that you are pregnant. Take a test again in a week to be sure. If you don't want to be pregnant again this soon, talk to your doctor about birth control options that are perfectly safe for breastfeeding. ...Read more
