8 days late, brown spotting, 2 negative preg tests, can I still be preg?

8 days late, brown spotting, 2 negative preg tests, can I still be preg?

Less likely: If you've had 2 negative pregnancy tests 8 days late, its less likely that you are pregnant. There are some exceptions to this such as a pregnancy that isn't a able to raise the pregnancy hormone above the threshold needed to turn a urine test positive. An example of this would be an ectopic pregnancy. You may want to get a blood pregnancy test to be sure. Best wishes! ...Read more

9 positive preg tests followed instructions exact neg blood test 2 weeks ago just repeated the blood test whats the chances of 9 tests being wrong ?

9 positive preg tests followed instructions exact neg blood test 2 weeks ago just repeated the blood test whats the chances of 9 tests being wrong ?

Depends: How many days after the hpt was the blood test done? If it was two weeks after the positive hpt, it is could be that an early pregnancy was lost spontaneously. However, from what you described you did not have a period between the positive hpt and negative blood test. As I may have stated earlier, I would question the technique of doing the hpt. ...Read more

I had a short cycle last time and now it's been 34 days since I've had it.  I'm usually 28 days.  Negative preg tests but had unprotected sex. Preg?

Maybe: It depends in part on when you did the pregnancy tests. If you did them after your period was late and repeated one a few days later pregnancy is very unlikely. There are many things that can disrupt your cycle and pregnancy is only one but it is the most common one if you are having unprotected intercourse. See you primary care provider or Gyn to look into the others. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Missed 3 jolessa pills, sex during those days, doubled up pills til caught up, light bleeding while catching up, 6 wks later & 3 neg preg tests. Preg?

No pregnancy: After 6 weeks, 3 negative pregnancy tests you can be sure you are not pregnant. Review with your physician as to doubling up on your pills if you have missed taking them. The bleeding is similar to the hormone reaction of taking the plan b pill and may effect your normal cycle if taken this way. Good luck. ...Read more

1st trimester bleed: The bleeding that occurred when your period was expected could be coming from a variety of reasons. It could be implantation bleeding, but could also be coming from your cervix due to infection, recent intercourse, increased blood flow etc. As long as you are not cramping as well this should be self limiting. Make an appointment with your doctor for further evaluation and early ultrasound. ...Read more

Ovulation/sex on 30/8, threw up 11/9 - some home preg tests are positive, some negative. Am I likely to be preg & if so, how far?

Ovulation/sex on 30/8, threw up 11/9 - some home preg tests are positive, some negative. Am I likely to be preg & if so, how far?

Maybe: If you ovulated on 8/30, you should be about due for your period. If you miss it, check a pregnancy test. If you are pregnant, you would be about 4 weeks. Conception would have occurred about 2 weeks ago, but we count gestational age from the first day of your last period, which was two weeks before conception. ...Read more

5 neg preg tests. Haven't had a period in 2 months since starting and stopping BC. Started what looked like period this am. Am I in the clear?

Most likely not preg: If all your pregnancy test have been first morning urine tests, and they are all negative, most likely you are not pregnant. It is not unusual to not have a period for a couple of months after stopping birth control pills. Just give it some time. And it sounds like you are staring your menses now too! ...Read more

Just spotting?: A doctor can check to see if there is any worrisome medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms. Many women have some variation of their periods or a missed period on occasion. Some women feel normal after a few days, but others do have bothersome symptoms that persist or recur and then need follow-up with their doctors. The doctor may evaluate if needed. ...Read more
