Negative pregnancy test 4-5 weeks after sex. Accurate?  Always had irregular periods.

Most likely: Over the counter pregnancy tests have pretty good accuracy rates. However, there is always a small chance of failure. I would suggest to use condoms from now on and once you have your periods, start using birth control pills. If you do not get your period for another month however, please visit your OB doctor to confirm/rule out pregnancy. ...Read more

Miscarriage(7 Weeks) Nov21,heavy bleeding & spotting until Nov29. Had(+)preg test Dec9. Obgyn withUSG confirmed new preg Dec10. hCG drop_am I pregnant?

Follow up: If you have a positive pregnancy test, you should see a doctor right away. You need to confirm that your miscarriage was completed, and not an ectopic or a continuing pregnancy. It seems unlikely that you could have a positive test from a new pregnancy so soon after miscarriage. You expect to ovulate no sooner than 2 weeks after the loss, and the test usually doesn't turn positive for 10 days. ...Read more
