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

Im 2 weeks late on my period and have pregnancy symptoms but I have a negative pregnancy test. Is it likely that im pregnant with low hormone levels?

Im 2 weeks late on my period and have pregnancy symptoms but I have a negative pregnancy test. Is it likely that im pregnant with low hormone levels?

Not pregnant: 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

Yes : Yes you should definitely see your doctor sooner if possible to address your concerns. However, if your normal period has come then you will not need to do this. Otherwise, you could wait for your appointment, at which time another pregnancy test, and possibly a pelvic ultrasound will be ordered in order to rule out ovarian cysts. Good luck. ...Read more

Stress: Stress is one of the things that can delay your period. You have just moved away, and are in a new environment. Your body may be sensing this stress and thus your period is delayed. Be patient and see how things go. If you continue to have problems get in for evaluation because there are other causes for this as well. ...Read more

Pregnancy unlikely: A woman is not pregnant if she got several negative pregnancy tests, unless she just conceived within the past week. 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). ...Read more

I'm 2 weeks late on my period and having no signs of pregnancy but having rib pains?

I'm 2 weeks late on my period and having no signs of pregnancy but having rib pains?

I would consider: pregnancy test at least 1 week after your late period, if your period never came. If that is negative, check again in 1 week. The longer you wait the more sensitive the pregnancy test becomes. If you start having a regular period then it's unlikely that you are pregnant. Rib pain can be caused by many things but if you are pregnant and you have rib pain go check with your doctor right away. ...Read more
