Possible: Assuming that you did the pregnancy tests correctly, it is unlikely that you are pregnant and all three tests be negative..... unless you were too early of course. Repeat the test in one week. Good luck. ...Read more

Retest next week. : If you don't have a period, redo the urine test next week. Then see your doctor. Some women don't ovulate each month so they miss a period sometimes. Forget the fizzy bleach thing, that is not accurate. ...Read more

Wondering if I am pregnant I have had my tubes tied for 13 yrs. But had miscarriage 2 yrs. Ago. Now I am 2 weeks late on my period my family dr. To me take a home pregnancy test if i didn't start by tuesday or wednesday so i did and it read negitive and

Obviously : Obviously when you had your tubes tied you should not have gotten pregnant again. I am concerned that you were able to even detect a faint negative on your home pregnancy test. We can detect pregnancy hormone (HCG) when the home pregnancy test is negative but you can see a faint line in the test area. I would recommend reporting this to your doctor and asking for a serum quantitative HCG test to make sure you are not pregnant. The reason for this extra concern is that with a prior tubal ligation, a pregnancy can be a tubal pregnancy which can be very dangerous. You need to be absolutely sure you are not pregnant and only a serum blood test can do this for you. ...Read more

See below: If you did the test correctly you are not likely to be pregnant. 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.

Can a pregnancy test read positive before implantation? My period is due on the tenth but test said positive 10 days before next period.

Can a pregnancy test read positive before implantation?  My period is due on the tenth but test said positive 10 days before next period.

No: A pregnancy test can only read positive after it has implanted into the uterine wall and started to produce HCG (human chrorionic gonadotropin). If it's positive, it's likely that you become pregnant the previous month. ...Read more

Hi, I have one question i GT my period really early last month but it missed it this month my pregnancy test reads negative could it be just irregular?

Hi, I have one question i GT my period really early last month but it missed it this month my pregnancy test reads negative could it be just irregular?

Pregnancy: A home urinary test is accurate. It may not be positive until one week after your missed period. If you have any doubt and the test remains negative get a blood pregnancy test. It sounds like you didn't ovulate. This will result in an irregular period. I do not think you are pregnant. You may find that you may have a late heavy period. This is not usually serious. See your doctor. ...Read more
