My period is five days late could i be pregnant and is it to soon to take a home pregnancy test?

No: Most home pregnancy tests are highly accurate once you have missed your first period. Follow the instructions closely and use your first morning urine. It also helps for a more accurate method to collect the urine in a disposable paper cup and dip the test strip inside for the prescribed time vs holding the strip in the urine stream. Refrain from alcohol and cigarettes until you know for sure. ...Read more

Four tests already?: For being 5 days late, 4 tests is a more than one needs. A urine pregnancy test is accurate if done correctly, and done after a missed period, or 3 weeks after sex. How about waiting 4-5 days between pregnancy tests? Patience. Patience. Patience. ...Read more

I had both fallopian tubes removed in june for the purpose of sterilization. Now im five days late for my period in sept. Could i be pregnant?

I had both fallopian tubes removed in june for the purpose of sterilization. Now im five days late for my period in sept. Could i be pregnant?

Unlikely, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), 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, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

Yes : Yes and yes. If your internal stress levels are high enough it can impact when you menstruate. A condom is good protection, but is not a 100% guarantee. You might wish to wait about a week out from the last pregnancy test to repeat it (if your period has not started by then). ...Read more

Maybe. Maybe not.: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like birth control pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Seeing a doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. Pregnancy is the common cause of a missed period, if sexually active. ...Read more

Period is five days late and negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant?

Period is five days late and negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant?

Yes: if you are using standard urine pregnancy tests it is possible that they are not sensitive enough and that you are not far enough along in a pregnancy to be detected. That being said, typically negative urine preg means not pregnant, the only way to be sure is to see your doctor and have a beta quantitative HCG blood test. Best of luck. ...Read more

Im late on my period for five days now.. I took and at home pregnancy test and it came up negative.. Could it be stress?

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. ...Read more
