Doubtful: The pregnancy tests are very sensitive and reliable these days. If it was negative, you are most likely not pregnant and with your history of period irregularities, you are probably just irregular again. Best wishes. ...Read more

Tests are accurate: 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

Check again.: Check a pg test to be sure, anytime your period is abnormal, in length, symptoms, or timing. Repeat in a week and if negative, and you miss another period, see your doc to find out why. Follow the instructions on the kit, and be sure it has not expired, too. Also, infections can occur, if you are at risk of pregnancy. So get checked for those if your pg test is negative. Practice safe sex! ...Read more

More reliable test: Many things, including some drugs, can interfere with the regularity of the menstrual cycle and 7 days is still close to the limit of acceptable variations. If you have no reason to suspect that you are pregnant, then your preg test is most likely accurate but if in doubt get a more reliable (in a lab) pregnancy test ...Read more

Period week late, pregnancy symp, but negative pregnancy test . Can i be pregnant ? Im having cramps , cravings and nausea, tender breast low back pain

Probably not...: The over the counter tests are very sensitive to pregnancy hormone, so if it's negative, then you probably aren't pregnant. Your symptoms sound hormonal, and should abate/resolve once you begin to menstruate. If you still don't menstruate, repeat the pregnancy test, and see your physician for further guidance. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: 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.

My period is 8 weeks late and i've had 2 negative pregnancy test. What could be wrong.?

Lots o possibilities: If your periods are always irregular, then this is just part of the pattern. You should not go longer than about 10 weeks without a period because the lining of the uterus can build up and get too thick, causing a really heavy period and even can lead to cancer. There are many possible causes for irregular cycles. See your doctor to figure this out. ...Read more

Period is late, I took plan b like a week ago is that why? Just took a negative pregnancy test

Maybe: Plan B can alter the menstrual for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex (that's about 21 days after sex), because Plan B works most of the time, but not all the time. ...Read more
