I am three days late on my period but had negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant? Last cycle was a chemical pregnancy.

I am three days late on my period but had negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant? Last cycle was a chemical pregnancy.

Trust the test: 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. Sounds like just a late period. ...Read more

It's been three weeks since I had sex, my period is 8 days late but I've had 2 negative pregnancy test, could I be pregnant or is it something else?

It's been three weeks since I had sex, my period is 8 days late but I've had 2 negative pregnancy test, could I be pregnant or is it something else?

Could be: pregnancy, but more likely something else. Home pregnancy tests are fairly reliable and if you have had 2 negative tests, then it is unlikely that you are pregnant. If you period is only a week late, then it could be that the tests were done too early to detect the pregnancy, so repeating one more test in 2-3 days to be sure, is reasonable. Many things can cause a woman to miss a period. ...Read more

This is usually not to worry about, and you might wait a little longer to see when the next period starts. A doctor should be able to help you start sorting through the list. ...Read more

Can I still be pregnant if I'm 1day late & negative pregnancy test. Believe ovulated the 10th. Feel like I'm about to have my period symptoms.

You can be.: Even if the test is negative, a lack of a period is pregnancy until proven otherwise. Now you may have your period soon, and so you will not be pregnant, if you have it and a negative test. However, if you don't have it, you should repeat your test in one week, and if still negative, or even if positive, see your doctor for a full exam and a repeat test. Good luck. ...Read more

Period one day late. Negative pregnancy test that said it could detect up to 5 days before missed period.?

Stress or worry?: Stress and worry can lead to late or missed period as your adrenal glands need cortisol to get you thru stress and they "steal" Progesterone from your female cycle which can affect timing and regularity. I can't tell you not to worry but I would suggest repeating test in a few days and then using reliable contraception on a regular basis to remove worry. Stress is bad for your health! ...Read more

Period is five days late and negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant?

Yes: If you are using standard urine pregnancy tests it is possible that they are not sensitive enough and that you are not far enough along in a pregnancy to be detected.

Period is now 5days late and still getting a negative pregnancy test. What's going on?

Hormonal imbalance: You may repeat the test in 3-4 days, if you do not get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test 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.
