My period is 22 days late should a pregnancy test tell me if im pregnant yet?

With missed period: If you have regular monthly periods, a pregnancy test will be positive when your period is due. A pregnancy test can be positive as soon as ten days after ovulation/conception, which is about four days before the menstrual period is due. So is certainly should be positive by the time of the missed period. ...Read more

A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Can retest in 1 week: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

Give it more time: You should take a pregnancy test 1-2 weeks after sexual intercourse and that should give you a pretty definite answer. If it still comes up negative then I recommend seeing a doctor so they can make a proper diagnosis and further help you from there. ...Read more

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's 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 doctor for irregular periods. ...Read more

I'm 15 day late on period. Took a pregnancy test at 7 days and 8 days late and they came back negative. Can I still be pregnant?

I'm 15 day late on period. Took a pregnancy test at 7 days and 8 days late and they came back negative. Can I still be pregnant?

Hormonal imbalance: If you did the test correctly, you are unlikely to be pregnant. You may repeat the test in 4-5 days, use first morning urine and follow the instructions carefully. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Not too early.: I think I answered this, because I figured the date was wrong, since you said your were late. Check the directions of various over-the-counter pregnancy tests. Repeat in a week, if negative and no period. If still negative and no period, see your doc. ...Read more
