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

Missed period: Although brown discharge might contain old blood - can't say if this is the start of your period. If you don't have a period for 4 months and were previously regular- that warrants medical evaluation. Take care. ...Read more

Yes on pregnancy.: You could be pregnant, but a urine test could be negative or inconclusive. A blood HCG might help you if you have to know now. Seeing a heart beat at 6 weeks is the ultimate reassurance. ...Read more

Pregnancy Testing: It all depends on when you next period was supposed to start. If it has not passed then you tested too early for it to be a valid test. Wait a few days and then test again. ...Read more

I started my period a week early, it was lighter than normal, and it lasted 2 days. I'm having some pregnancy symptoms and I'm wondering what to do?

Pregnancy test: It is very important to rule out pregnancy if you think you have symptoms. Pregnancy test kits are about $1 at the dollar store. Or you can go to a Public Health clinic to get tested. If your pregnancy test comes back negative, it is very likely your period starting a week early and lasting for 2 days are within normal range for regular period cycles. ...Read more
