Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

I am three days late on my period. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative. Could it be too early to tell?

I am three days late on my period. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative. Could it be too early to tell?

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

I am three days late on my period. I took the Plan B pill about two weeks ago. Took a pregnancy test two days ago, negative. Could I still be pregnant?

I am three days late on my period. I took the Plan B pill about two weeks ago. Took a pregnancy test two days ago, negative. Could I still be pregnant?

Yes: Obviously you were very concerned about the possibility of being pregnant since you took plan b. Emergency contraception is not 100% effective, so it is certainly possible to be pregnant. A negative pregnancy test is reassuring but that is also not 100% accurate either way, especially early. Irregular periods can be from pregnancy, or other causes, so if worry continues, be seen and checked out. ...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

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

I am 10 days late for my period but I have taken three home pregnancy test that all have come back negative, can I still be pregnant?

Possible: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. ...Read more

I'm three weeks late for my period. I have regular cycles. I've got changes in my body but took home pregnancy test but came out negative. Ur opinion?

No ovulation: When a period is late but the pregnancy test is negative, it usually means that you didn't ovulate (since ovulation brings on a period in 14 days). Not ovulating can also bring on symptoms of pregnancy. Not ovulating is often caused by stress, but can be from other things. It may take care of itself. Otherwise see your doctor. ...Read more

Three week late period, negative pregnancy test, no symptoms. Period came early last month, but is now late. Always used protection. What's going on?

Non-ovulatory cycle: The most likely reason is you didn't ovulate in your last cycle, or that it was a late ovulation, but there's a long list of other possibilities. 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
