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

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 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 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

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
