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

My period is 7 days late, very sore breast but the soreness varies each day, positive pregnancy test, but having cramps. Could I really be pregnant?

My period is 7 days late, very sore breast but the soreness varies each day, positive pregnancy test, but having cramps. Could I really be pregnant?

Yes, really could be: Much of what you describe are symptoms consistent with early pregnancy. However, the cramping is a bit concerning.

Assuming the two test you describe we're accurate, the negative 2nd result would indicate a loss of the pregnancy. However, one or both tests could have been inaccurate. Or, you may harbor anti anti IgA heterophile antibody which can give spurious results. Check with your gynecologist to be sure. ...Read more
