HCG sustained: At day 44, a positive HCG can indicate either a miscarriage which your body has not yet rejected, or an ectopic pregnancy, which needs attention. See your physician for an ultrasound and advice. At age 41, unfortunately miscarriages occur much more frequently, and this pattern you have described is not unusual. ...Read more

I was trying this month 2 get pregnant, period came 4 days early, ovulation predictor only tested positive 10 days ago and no typical basal temp, why?

I was trying this month 2 get pregnant, period came 4 days early, ovulation predictor only tested positive 10 days ago and no typical basal temp, why?

Abnormal: So either this was a weird month or a sign of other things. If it happens once that is fine. But if it continues to happen then it is a sign of a problem with the ovaries and eggs where the ovary does not produce enough hormones to adequately or optimally prepare for pregnancy. I would wait and see what happens the next 2 months before being over concerned. ...Read more

11 days of flashing, day 12 got a solid smiley, still testing positive 4 DAYS LATER? Clearblue advance digital OPK

Day 12...: Its not helpful (and sometimes confusing) to continue testing after the ovulation test goes positive. What you need to know is the day it first tests positive. You will generally ovulate within 12-48 hours after that happens. The best time to "try" for pregnancy is the night it goes positive and the next night. Best wishes! ...Read more

Try again: While contemporary tests do come back positive up to a week before the anticipated menstrual period, you are in a window where I would not rely on a negative test. I would repeat the test a week after you missed your period. ...Read more

I'm 7 days late for my period took 4 home test 1 positive after the limit 3 not, with some spotting, could i be pregnant? When to test again?

I'm 7 days late for my period took 4 home test 1 positive after the limit 3 not, with some spotting, could i be pregnant? When to test again?

Maybe in 3-5 days: Home pregnancy tests are easy to do, fast, and highly accurate, but not 100%. Maybe it is a tad bit early at this time. I would suggest repeating in 3-5 days to make sure. If you are pregnant, there is a very good chance that the hpt will show postive after 5-7 days of missing your regular period. You are 7 days late, but this may just be a later than usual--it happens. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Surgery effects.: Having a major surgery can certainly cause a disruption in the normal menstrual cycle. It can take a few months to get back to normal sometimes. If you don't ovulate, by the testing method that has worked for you before, for 3 or 4 months, follow-up with your doc. Also, ask your doc about this at your next visit, too. ...Read more

Can't say : Either your cycle and ovulation is incredibly erratic, or the opk are not working correctly. There's no way to tell form the info you've given. See a doctor in person to take the next steps. ...Read more

External influences: Despite what most think of as automatic ; simple system, it's a very complex interaction between several hormones, each can be impacted by different life stressors. Infection, trauma, external stress (emotional/social/etc.), diet change or inadequacy, among others, can all impact the reproductive cycle, and missing occasionally is normal. Can retest once after 1 week, then wait for next menses. ...Read more

Yes.: If you are feeling fine, wait and see. 15% of pregnancies have some vaginal bleeding associated, such as from implantation. The negative tests could indicate an early miscarriage due to genetic mutation which happens frequently. You may continue having sexual intercourse. ...Read more
