Menstrual: irregularities are not uncommon. Anovulatory cycles are one cause. If you did the pregnancy test correctly, you are not pregnant.

I had a light period october 5-9 then spotting from 21st to 27th i had a negative pregnancy test after both period and spotting. Could i be pregnant?

I had a light period october 5-9 then spotting from 21st to 27th i had a negative pregnancy test after both period and spotting. Could i be pregnant?

Probably not: The fact that you had a period, although it was not like your usual periods, makes it very unlikely that you are pregnant. Most women have an usual period (shorter, longer, lighter, heavier,early, or late) once in a while. Home pregnancy tests are very reliable, but if you remain concerned and have had unprotected sex within the past month, do another pregnancy test in 1 week to be sure. ...Read more

2-6 weeks: It's a bit unpredictable, but if your periods were regular before and you were consistently ovulating, it may be as short as 2 weeks. But up to 6 weeks would be normal. ...Read more

I miscarried 5 weeks ago, I was 13 weeks pregnant, complete spontaneous abortion. I had a negative pregnancy test 2 weeks later. Can I be pregnant?

No: Two weeks after a spontaneous abortion is too soon to be pregnant. If you are having unprotected sex and miss your period due in about 2-3 weeks, then you may wish to do a pregnancy test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

I was sexually active bt last week I had a negative pregnancy test was it to early? I haven't had my first period yet from my miscarriage 6 weeks ago

I was sexually active bt last week I had a negative pregnancy test was it to early?  I haven't had my first period yet from my miscarriage 6 weeks ago

Pregnancy testing: Yes. Of course it was too early. Conception takes one to five days after sex. The fetus then is not connected chemically or physically to the mother in any testable way for ten to fourteen days after that. So the earliest would be fourteen days after sex. ...Read more

Not unusual: If your period was late, there may have been additional build up of uterine lining in that time, leading to particularly heavy period this time. You are not pregnant, so not to worry. Make sure you are getting adequate iron in your diet to have enough for your blood loss and feeding your baby. May need a temporary iron supplement. ...Read more

Not necessarily: Urine pregnancy tests rely on chemicals made by the developing fetal/embryonic mass of cells.Early in pregnancy they may not achieve a high enough level to turn the test positive. An early morning urine is more concentrated and thus more likely to be accurate, but it may bee too soon. Test again in a week. ...Read more

Late period: The urine pregnancy tests are very sensitive and accurate. I would repeat in one week if no period. I do think blood tests are still the best. You could see your doctor for that. ...Read more
