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

Always on time but a week late getting cramps but no period not pregnant?

Always on time but a week late getting cramps but no period not pregnant?

Irregularity: It's nice you have been so regular to this point in your life. But mild irregularities are common and I would not worry if an occasional cycle is off a little bit. If any possibility of pregnancy, double check a home test with first morning urine. If negative, don't worry unless cycles become irregular frequently or there are other associated symptoms you are concerned about. ...Read more

Negative test but still no period but i little implatation bleeding could i be pregnant?

Negative test but still no period but i little implatation bleeding could i be pregnant?

Implantation = pregn: If you have "implantation bleeding" it means you must be pregnant. Sadly, the internet is full of so much crap that so many women (maybe you?) are trapped in ideas like "implantation bleeding" they don't know if they are pregnant - or not. Do a hpt, find out if you are pregnant first - then can go from there - and best wishes. ...Read more

My period it 17days late. I know i ovulated. I also have pregnancy symptoms. But home pregnancy tests are saying negative. Could i still be pregnant?

My period it 17days late. I know i ovulated. I also have pregnancy symptoms. But home pregnancy tests are saying negative. Could i still be pregnant?

Neg test = not preg: 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. See your doc for irregular periods. ...Read more

Does having a late period result in late ovulation? My period came late but im not sure if that means I will ovulate late this time too.

14 days before: An easy way to remember ovulation is that it occurs 14 days before your next cycle. If you know how many days between periods then you can calculate an approximate ovulation date. If your cycles are irregular than predicting ovulation is almost impossible. ...Read more

My period is late but i'm not pregnant. Could i still get pregnant if I have unprotected sex during this time?

Yes. : You are never "safe" from pregnancy if you do not use protection. Ovulation can occur late and if you are not protected with some form of birth control then you can still get pregnant. Don't take chances if you are not ready to be a mother. ...Read more

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
