Pregnancy: One possibility is that you are pregnant, and the "light period" you had was implantation bleeding. It's time to do a home urine pregnancy test.

Light and short period, and pregnancy symptoms but negative test? Tested after period started. Could I have ovulated late?

Unlikely: It's unlikely that you are pregnant given your period started on time and you tested after your period started. Even if you ovulated late, if you were pregnant, it would be positive by now. 99% not pregnant

Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.

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. Irregular periods are very common.

By the time you: Miss your period the pregnancy test should be positive. We never say never though and you may consider restesting if concerned. You are certainly at high risk and should consider the pill if you are trying to prevent pregnancy, good luck.

I took planb after unprotected sex on last day of my period 2week ago & had a lightperiod. I'm having water retention. Is it pregnancy or just my period?

I took planb after unprotected sex on last day of my period 2week ago & had a lightperiod. I'm having water retention. Is it pregnancy or just my period?

Maybe: Planb is not 100% effective, so you need to check a pregnancy test. Breakthrough bleeding after using planb is common and is not your period. It also works to delay ovulation, so your next period might also be delayed.

I had light period on 13th march lasted just one day on/off done home pregnacy test says positive would you say that's a normal period?

I had light period on 13th march lasted just one day on/off done home pregnacy test says positive would you say that's a normal period?

Depends on the past: "normal" period means a period that is like all the other periods one has had over the past year. If this "light period" that lasts "just one day" with menstrual flow going "on/off" is just like all the other periods in the preceding months, then a woman could think this is a normal period. However, with a positive pregnancy test, the vaginal bleeding is not a real period even if it seemed normal.

Late period, no pregnancy symptoms, 7 negative pregnancy test. Am I pregnant?

Late period, no pregnancy symptoms, 7 negative pregnancy test. Am I pregnant?

Depends: If you did not have sex since your last period, you are not pregnant. If you did the test correctly, at more than 4-5 days after a missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant, though you may wish to repeat the test, Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. 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. Get HPV vaccine.

Hmmm....: Pregnancy is the most common cause of a missed period. If not pregnant, other causes of a late or missed period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (especially birth control pills), hormonal disorders, etc… A home urine pregnancy test is very accurate 3 weeks after sex.

Check for preg & STD: At this point (> 2 wks after sex) a urine preg test is just as accurate as a blood test. If you have not yet checked an over the counter urine pregnancy test, you should do that. Or as Dr. Engrav suggested, if your discharge is different than your normal discharge, you should be seen by your primary care provider or a someone who can evaluate you for a STI and check your urine for pregnancy test.
