Not sure: You might want to try a different test if you are not sure. The other option would we to see your MD and check a blood test. It may just be that you had a delay in ovulation, and that you period may come a little later than usual. If you haven't started in a week and you test is negative, you may want to check with your MD. ...Read more

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. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

See Your Doc: With ambiguous pregnancy tests you really should see your doc since pregnancy after a tubal ligation is a serious condition. An ectopic has to be ruled out and a serum HCG is mandatory. If negative, you can relax. If positive, your doc will review your current condition and give alternatives which include first finding your pregnancy, medical vs surgical treatment, and sterilization options. ...Read more

Confusing: Your timeline is confusing: if you had a period on July 8th, and today's date is August 10th, your period is not one month late? Also, different pregnancy tests can have different cut-off points which changes how sensitive the tests are. You should sit down with a doctor to help sort out if any further care is needed since there was a positive pregnancy test recently. ...Read more

Check it again : You should take a pregnancy test again now. When the pregnancy is at a very early stage, the b-hcg level is still very low and undetectable which will give you false negative pregnancy test. Take the test again now to confirm. If negative again, you should go to see your md and have yourself checked. Other condition such as gastritis, stomach ulcers, other GI problems etc can cause nausea ...Read more

September two periods. October No period so far. Always regular 28 day Periods. Could I be pregnant?  Pregnancy Test negative.

Highly unlikely: if 2 pregnancy tests were negative and regular menstrual periods, within reasonable doubt. So go check pregnancy test again in 1 week. Your hormones may be in flux for whatever reason, and it may be good for you to wait another 1-2 months to see if it will set itself straight. If not, then you need to see family physician or GYN provider to help with that. ...Read more

Check it again: I'd wait a week and check it again. Your symptoms are consistent with pregnancy. If not pregnant, you may not have ovulated this cycle, which can lead one to miss their period and have a variety of other symptoms. ...Read more

Take a test : Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. 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. The vaginal spotting would need instigation only if it continues. ...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. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD. Consult this site for more information on this topic. http://www.nichd.nih.gov/health/topics/menstruation/conditioninfo/Pages/causes.aspx Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Don't know reason.: The main reason for light periods is a change in hormone levels. Causes for what seems to be a light period can include: implantation bleeding in early pregnancy, thyroid problems, eating disorders, excessive exercise, initial periods for a girl, use of an intrauterine device, oral contraceptives & perimenopause. ...Read more

I have had the mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD for 4 years.3 months ago instead of getting a period I got brown discharge for about a day each time.pregnancy test negative?

I have had the mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD for 4 years.3 months ago instead of getting a period I got brown discharge for about a day each time.pregnancy test negative?

The IUD: The Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD is a progestin only contraceptive method.Progesterone opposes the estrogenic stimulus to the uterine lining to grow and instead signals it to mature. For this reason there is a markedly thinner lining that gets thinner over time (+a decreased risk of uterine cancer).That is the reason that you just have the dark spotting. Progestins also provide contraception. Estrogen is added for cycle control. ...Read more

Very light spotting at 18 days past start of last period for 1 day. Have been trying to conceive. Pregnancy test negative at cycle day 19. Confused...

Tested too soon: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 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. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Too early: 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. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days.
