My period is due in 1 day (tomorrow), no period pains and all pregnancy symptoms. Negative pregnancy test 3 days ago, was it too early to test?

Too early to test: 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. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Later period. No PMS or pregnancy symptoms. Negative pregnancy test. Just stopped birth control. Could she still be pregnant?

Pregnancy: Yes you can still be pregnant. Over the counter pregnancy tests only detect the pregnancy hormone when it reaches a certain level. Sometimes you may test your urine when either the pregnancy levels are low or the urine is dilute. This is why over the counter pregnancy tests suggest using early morning void to test. ...Read more

I have all pregnancy symptoms and negative pregnancy test what should I do?

Wait and test again: Wait a week and repeat using a different brand or get tested at a clinic. If the urine test is negative, get the more sensitive blood test. Both measure HCG levels, a hormone of early pregnancy. If done too soon, HCG is not detected. Some women have slightly different HCG harder to measure. If negative tests and symptoms continue, talk with your doctor. S/he may order an ultrasound. ...Read more

No period for almost 2 months. periods are regular and have lots of pregnancy symptoms but negative pregnancy test?

Missed Periods: With a negative pregnancy test after two months, we have to look at other causes of amenorrhea. There are many, ranging from stress, to temporary hormone imbalances, poly cystic ovary disease, pelvic infection, endocrine conditions such as thyroid disease, and many others. I would suggest a thorough evaluation by a GYN specialist to get to the root of the temporary condition. ...Read more

I have had spotting for two weeks then got my period, having pregnancy symptoms but negative pregnancy test?

Irreg spotting: 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. See doctor for your irregular bleeding. ...Read more
