My Period Is Late But My Pregnancy Test Is Negative
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. 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

Highly unlikely: If correctly performed a pregnancy test coming back negative, when there is actually a pregnancy, is highly unlikely. Anything is possible in medicine, though - so you could back up the test with a blood test and/or a transvaginal ultrasound, which 8 weeks into a pregnancy should demonstrate a pregnancy in the uterus. ...Read more
Test again: If you are not using birth control, and are sexually active (having intercourse), then check again at the 7-10 day-late mark. If still negative, call your ob/gyn for an in-office or a blood test. If that is still negative, they may ask you to wait a bit longer for your period, or they may give you a short course of Progesterone to induce your period and "reset" your cycle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My period is 17days late. Home pregnancy test are negative. Is there a chance that i can still be pregnant.
Maybe: It may still be possible to be pregnant if ovulation was late. But if your periods have been very regular up until this point, it's more likely that you're just skipping an ovulation, perhaps from stress or something else. Run another test in about 1 wk. If it's still negative ; the cycle doesn't go back to normal next month, seek care to figure out why the skipping. There are many possibilities. ...Read more
Late period: 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 doctor for irregular periods. ...Read more
My period is over a week late and still getting a negative preg test. My cycle is always normal. Can I still be pregnant?
Probably not: Urine 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

Unlikely: Most women will occasional have "anovulatory" period occasionally snd will be late. How late are we talking? If one two days OK to wait another day or two and see if it comes.

Good luck, but you on not need it and will be fine. ...Read more
