If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Yes : Yes you could be pregnant. Bleeding in pregnancy can be normal, however it could also mean a miscarriage has happened, or will happen. The only way to be sure is to see your doctor and explain what happened. He/she will likely do a blood pregnancy test, and if the results are positive your doctor may do subsequent blood tests to track the progress of the pregnancy. Your doctor will be able to explain everything that has happened or will happen depending on the test results. Good luck. ...Read more

Pregnancy : Pregnancy is always possible. As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear that a fertile woman is having a missed or abnormal period or spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's urine test is accurate around the time of your period. Good luck! ...Read more

Trust the test: 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. ...Read more

Not likely: If you have irregular periods or if you are not bleeding on pills, then there is a hormonal reason for missing your period, not pregnancy. If you don't bleed with your pills but don't miss pills you are ok, but be careful if you take antibiotics. ...Read more

I took two pregnancy tests after my expected period. Could I still be pregnant?

I took two pregnancy tests after my expected period. Could I still be pregnant?

Unlikely if negative: 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
