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

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

4 days late period this month, used pull out method. Stressing out. Skipping meals. Negative pregnancy test.

Be calm: Not much to say, other than do not use pull out method. Way too risky as you know now. Good news is your pregnancy tests are negative. May just be late with all the stress, or could be an an-ovulatory cycle. Fingers crossed, but so far best news is negative test. Use protection, and get on bc for next time. ...Read more
