Can i still be pregnant. Afteer 1 negative blood test and 3 negative hpt. Just missed my period only two days late. All test were done before period.

?question: If the tests were "all done before your period", and you just missed your period (only 2 days late), then were the tests done before your last period? That would mean a whole cycle has passed again without a period? Either way, if you had unprotected sex near your ovulation, you may be pregnant. Check another test and see the dr. for an evaluation if your period continues to be missed. ...Read more

No, not likely: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) 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. ...Read more

Test again.: Depending on how regular your cycles are, you may have tested too early. Typically though, if you are experiencing symptoms, you should have enough hormones in your system to cause the test to be positive. The easiest thing to do is test again but if the symptoms continue and you don't start your period after several days, you should contact a physician. ...Read more

Hello Doc, I missed my period by 9 days now, negative pregnancy test. but having lower back pain & extreme legs pain. please suggest.

Missed period: Wouldn't hurt to try another pregnancy test, just to make sure. The pain may mean that your period is about to start today. You can try a heating pad on your lower abdomen. I often recommend ibuprofen, 600 mg every 6 hrs for that kind of cramping pain. You may need to stay home today and lie down for a few hours. Good luck. ...Read more

Repeat test: If you did the test correctly and it was negative at three days after missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant.

Another cause is vaginismus which to treat is much more difficult. You need to see an expert gyn. ...Read more

On minastrin 24 Fe for 7 months and I have missed 2 periods in a row. Pregnancy test negative. No sexual activity for 3.5 months. I never miss a pill.

Normal: One of the birth control hormone benefits is reduction in menstrual bleeding. This can decrease to very minimal spotting and sometimes no periods. Periods on birth control hormones are drug induced and do nothing to "clean out your system". If this is bothersome for you, a change to a different formulation should resume menstrual bleeding for you. ...Read more
