To find out if you're pregnant or not, try to do over-the counter pregnancy test. For your peace of mind, you might want to contact either your primary care physician or OBGYN. Some things just cannot be diagnosed and addressed over the internet :) Good Luck!

Dr. Laura Pearlman answered:

First date of last menstrual period 1/27/14. 9 days late before having bleeding that lasted only 3 days. Should I still take a pregnancy test?

Perhaps

Menses
If your period was 9 days late and it was not a normal period (ie just spotting or very short), then I would do a urine pregnancy test.

I used clomid on this menstrual cycle and i am 2 days past my period and i did a pregnancy test and it s negative what could i do about it?

Repeat

Clomid
Repeat pregnancy test again in 2 days if cycle remains delayed. If still negative and cycle is still delayed, see your doctor.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

Had qualitative serum pregnancy test, 30 days after last sexual contact. 49 days from Last Menstrual Period. Negative result. Is that accurate already?

Yes

Pregnancy_test
Thirty days after sex is enough time to get a reliable result, if the test is done correctly and read correctly. A urine pregnancy test is inexpensive and available everywhere, so a repeat test can be done if no menstrual period comes during the next few weeks.

I am overdue for my period and the pregnancy tests have came back negative twice, what is going on with me? I have been cramping the last week and a half or so. My hormones have been whacky. I am 32 days out from my last menstrual cycle. I usually go ever

Not sure

Missed/late period: low body wt, obesity, weight ^ or v, ^exercise, endurance athletics, breast-feeding, stress, illness, eating disorders (bulimia or anorexia), anovulatory cycle (no egg released), travel, perimenopause, just starting menstruation, hormone irregularities, drug use, meds (i.e., birth control) or medical problems (i.e., Polycystic Ovary Syndrome). #1 reason is pregnancy.

I'm 5 days due my menstrual cycle.Cramps but no periods yet.I did home pregnancy test today. 1 dark pink 1 faint pink line appeared. Am I pregnant?

Trust the test

Menstrual
Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's 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.
