Do another test: Sounds like you might've had a chemical pregnancy, which is a very early pregnancy that just turns positive and then you start your period a few days later. This is extremely common, and most women find it frustrating, so I'm sorry. Test again; if negative, that's likely what you had. Good wishes. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: If you did the tests correctly at nine days after missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant.

Just got off birth control and have a late period and really bad cramping, but 2 negative pregnancy tests what does this mean?

Just got off birth control and have a late period and really bad cramping, but 2 negative pregnancy tests what does this mean?

Hormones readjusting: Most birth control works by providing hormones that cause the body to act like it is pregnant. It is these hormonal changes that cause the body not to release an egg to be fertilized, thereby preventing pregnancy. It is not at all unusual for it to take the body a few months to adjust to the hormonal changes. Don't be concerned if it takes a while for your body to readjust. ...Read more

Pregnancy tests can test 5 days b4 missed period. But the only time i could've got pregnant was 4 days b4 my now late period. When can I 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

I'm 23 yrs old. 3 week late period then light bleeding for 3 days. Negative pregnancy test the week before. Can it still be a possible pregnancy?

Unlikely: It sounds like you experienced an "anovulatory" cycle. When ovulation occurs, your cycle predictably happens about 14 days later. When it does not occur or is delayed, then you get a delay in your period, irregular bleeding and negative pregnancy tests. This can all be confusing. This should be discussed with your ob/gyn. ...Read more
