Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Period is five days late and negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant?

Period is five days late and negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant?

Yes: if you are using standard urine pregnancy tests it is possible that they are not sensitive enough and that you are not far enough along in a pregnancy to be detected. That being said, typically negative urine preg means not pregnant, the only way to be sure is to see your doctor and have a beta quantitative HCG blood test. Best of luck. ...Read more

My period is late 2 months pregnancy test said negative could I still be pregnant?

My period is late 2 months pregnancy test said negative could I still be pregnant?

Highly unlikely: If correctly performed a pregnancy test coming back negative, when there is actually a pregnancy, is highly unlikely. Anything is possible in medicine, though - so you could back up the test with a blood test and/or a transvaginal ultrasound, which 8 weeks into a pregnancy should demonstrate a pregnancy in the uterus. ...Read more

Not sure: You are obviously late for your period, and in the setting of a negative pregnancy test, you are not pregnant. This indicates that you did not ovulate or it was significantly delayed. Talk to your doctor about ways to induce a period and pills to regulate the cycle. ...Read more

Periods  on time every month missed my period this month pregnancy  test negative but got pregnancy  symptoms?

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. ...Read more

Trust the test: The first step is to repeat a home pregnancy test. They are quick, reliable and easy to do. If the test is negative then you are not pregnant. In that case you can monitor the cycle over the next few days and schedule a visit with an obgyn to discuss.

8 days late on my period, but negative home pregnancy test??? Could I still be pregnant?

8 days late on my period, but negative home pregnancy test??? Could I still be pregnant?

Unlikely but...: Unlikely but technically yes it is possible. I would use a different brand of pregnancy test to confirm the first negative result. If you're negative again, then definitely not pregnant. In that case you had delayed ovulation for that month and it's going to take longer to get your period. Your ovulation can be delayed for many reasons: stress, endocrine problems (thyroid), other medications, etc. ...Read more

No period three days past expected period and a negative pregnancy test could I still be pregnant?

Possibly: Have you always been regular? what kind of pregnancy test did you have done? was it an over the counter home pregnancy test? Some can provide false negative results. I would recommend repeating it. If it is still negative then I would just wait a little longer and see if your period resumes. If that does not happen then it is time for you to have your doctor order a serum(blood) pregnancy test. ...Read more

6 days late period but negative pregnancy test... Im not stressing...Could i be pregnant?...

6 days late period but negative pregnancy test... Im not stressing...Could i be pregnant?...

Trust the test: A pregnancy test can detect a bhcg of about 20. Your bhcg roughly doubles every 48 hours. Let's say the first day you took it you were barely pregnant with a level of 19. 48 hours later your bhcg would be 38 which is way above the level for a urine pregnancy test to detect it. Home tests work really well and can be trusted. Repeat and if negative then you are not pregnant. ...Read more

My period is several days late. I took a pregnancy test and it said negative. Having PMS symptoms.Am I pregnant?

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
