My period is late 2 months pregnancy test said negative could I still be pregnant?

Highly unlikely: If correctly performed a pregnancy test coming back negative, when there is actually a pregnancy, is highly unlikely. Anything is possible in medicine, though - so you could back up the test with a blood test and/or a transvaginal ultrasound, which 8 weeks into a pregnancy should demonstrate a pregnancy in the uterus. ...Read more

I am three days late on my period but had negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant? Last cycle was a chemical pregnancy.

I am three days late on my period but had negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant? Last cycle was a chemical pregnancy.

Trust the test: 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. Sounds like just a late period. ...Read more

Recently had positive pregnancy test was bleeding for three days 1st day heavy tested again was negative but could i still be pregnant?

Recently had positive pregnancy test was bleeding for three days 1st day heavy tested again was negative but could i still be pregnant?

Unlikely: If what you're saying is that you had a positive pregnancy test.... and then after that test you had 3 days of bleeding and then you took another test and it's negative, then likely you aren't pregnant anymore. You can take a confirmatory test (I'd wait 3-5 days), and make sure, but sounds like you miscarried. See a physician if you're worried or bleeding continues for > 7 days. ...Read more

2 pregnancy tests were negative but still no period. Could i still be pregnant?

Not likely: If you have irregular periods or if you are not bleeding on pills, then there is a hormonal reason for missing your period, not pregnancy. If you don't bleed with your pills but don't miss pills you are ok, but be careful if you take antibiotics. ...Read more

Took pregnancy test at 2 dAys late got negative but have pregnancy symptoms did I test to early?

Test again.: Depending on how regular your cycles are, you may have tested too early. Typically though, if you are experiencing symptoms, you should have enough hormones in your system to cause the test to be positive. The easiest thing to do is test again but if the symptoms continue and you don't start your period after several days, you should contact a physician. ...Read more
