My period is due in 1 day (tomorrow), no period pains and all pregnancy symptoms. Negative pregnancy test 3 days ago, was it too early to test?

Too early to test: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Period 5 days late. 1 positive and 3 negative pregnancy tests. Quite bad cramping similar to period pains but worse and in back hips a nd thighs also.

Blood test: If the negative results were seen after the positive result, at five days after missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. For confirmation, you should get a blood test for HCG level. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Trust the test : 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. Sounds like just a late period. ...Read more
