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

Hard to tell: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. ...Read more

May be pregnant: The morning-after pill should only be used once a cycle. You should not rely on it for birth control. There are dependable forms of birth control to use if you have unplanned sex frequently, though that isn't healthy emotionally and may increase your risk of infections. If you are late with your period, check a pregnancy test every couple weeks until your period starts. ...Read more

Period 23days late. 5 negative digital tests. Tested last three days ago, negative again. Could I be pregnant?

Highly unlikely: Many things can cause a delayed/late menstrual period. With 5 negative tests it is highly unlikely that you are pregnant. It is time to start looking into some of the other possibilities such as medications, diseases such as thyroid disease, diabetes/ insulin resistance,polycystic ovarian syndrome, or pituitary tumors, exercise, stress,weight change,or changes in your schedule. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Period 22 days late. Fingered after he touched himself (18 days ago). three negative HPTs (latest today). Could I be pregnant?

Unlikely: You may wish to repeat the pregnancy test in a week or so, just to be sure. 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. ...Read more

So i have been trying to get pregnant for over a year its difficult for me im three days late on my period is there a chance i could be prego ?

Wait a few days: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), 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, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
