I am three days late on my period. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative. Could it be too early to tell?

I am three days late on my period. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative. Could it be too early to tell?

Can retest in 1 week: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) 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. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

I am three days late on my period. I took the Plan B pill about two weeks ago. Took a pregnancy test two days ago, negative. Could I still be pregnant?

I am three days late on my period. I took the Plan B pill about two weeks ago. Took a pregnancy test two days ago, negative. Could I still be pregnant?

Yes: Obviously you were very concerned about the possibility of being pregnant since you took plan b. Emergency contraception is not 100% effective, so it is certainly possible to be pregnant. A negative pregnancy test is reassuring but that is also not 100% accurate either way, especially early. Irregular periods can be from pregnancy, or other causes, so if worry continues, be seen and checked out. ...Read more

I am three days late on my period but had negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant? Last cycle was a chemical pregnancy.

I am three days late on my period but had negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant? Last cycle was a chemical pregnancy.

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. Sounds like just a late period. ...Read more

I am three days late for my period, and I have extremely tender breasts.Also when i go to the bathroom there is white discharge. Should i be concerned about pregnancy since im only 3 days late?

Pregnancy : Pregnancy is a possibility. If you want to be sure you can purchase an early prediction pregnancy test. This will usually give an accurate result a week before your missed period. However if you want to wait a week or more that is also a reasonable option, since a woman's menstrual cycle can vary for a variety of reasons (stress, weight changes, medications etc.). Your tender breasts and discharge may just be pre-menstrual symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more

I am 3 days late on my period and now all of a sudden I am bleeding reddish brown blood?

OK: Being somewhat late, early, irregular with periods, happens to many folks occasionally, so this is not a problem. Color of the blood is what is, so no problem there either. Monitor your cycles. If you are sexually active and want to defer pregnancy, use consistent contraception ...Read more

I am 3 days late on my period. I took a pregnancy but it was negative. Did i test to early?

No: A home pregnancy test should be reliable 2 or maybe 3 days before your expected period, so 3 days late should be accurate. You could test again to be certain but it sound like "no." Good wishes. ...Read more

I am 3 days late on my period.Head is paining from yesterday.Anything to concern?Planning to take hpt next week.

I am 3 days late on my period.Head is paining from yesterday.Anything to concern?Planning to take hpt next week.

Take the test today: If the period is 3 days late, a home pregnancy test would be positive by now. Especially if you use the 1st urine of the am. In very early pregnancy, drinking lots of fluid before taking the test can cause a false negative. This is less likely after not drinking throughout the night. If it's negative, repeat the test in 3 days. If still negative, the skipped period is probably from something else. ...Read more

Does my cervix have to do with pregnancy? I am 3 days late on my period.

Definitly not: Cervical position is almost completely unreliable. Unless you are actively in labor there is no reason to check your own cervix as it will not help you. Try a home pregnancy test if you want to know if you are pregnant ...Read more
