Had unprotected sex 11 days ago. Took pregnant test yesterday morning. Neg. Today morning pink spots than brown. Could I be pregnant? Period late by 5day

It's Possible: Yes, it is possible. Sometimes home pregnancy tests can give false negative results. You could do one of a couple things. You could wait another 5-7 days and test again at home, or you could go to your doctor and see if you can get a blood test to see definitively if you are pregnant, although those results may be more accurate in a few days too. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

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

Missed my period having light spotting can I be pregnant or just period late?

Missed my period having light spotting can I be pregnant or just period late?

Either one possible: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An ob-gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Period 7 weeks late. I thought pregnant, but no HPT. Saw pinkish-brown spotting, then few hours later red blood. Pregnant? Miscarriage? Late Period?

Period 7 weeks late. I thought pregnant, but no HPT. Saw pinkish-brown spotting, then few hours later red blood. Pregnant? Miscarriage? Late Period?

All are possible: 7 weeks is quite late especially if you're usually regular. A miscarriage is a likely scenario, and these are very common, but it is also possible for a pregnancy to survive first-trimester bleeding. Watchful waiting is safe unless this is heavier than or lasts longer than a normal period, but you could also have a pregnancy test performed followed by a check for viability if positive. ...Read more

Had sex a few times in one night but was always protected he came once and condom was replaced but I'm scared of being pregnant, period not late?

Had sex a few times in one night but was always protected he came once and condom was replaced but I'm scared of being pregnant, period not late?

Condoms not enough: Over the long run, condoms are about 90% effective in preventing pregnancy. Slippage, breakage, and other mistakes like you had are always a risk. If you want to reliably avoid pregnancy, you must get on the pill, other hormonal contraception, or an IUD. If you only use condoms you can expect to become pregnant one of these days. But also use condoms for STD prevention! And get HPV vaccine! ...Read more

Naked rubbing of genitals but no intercourse, no penetration never had sex still a virgin. Period late. Could I be pregnant or period is just late?

Very unlikely: That you are pregnant but still is remotely possible. With the sensitivity of present pregnancy testing, I would still encourage you to complete a home pregnancy test. Even if that's negative, if you period doesn't come in the intermin, I would retest to be absolutely sure. Best of luck. ...Read more

I have noticed when I start to drink cardiomagnyl my periods become irregualar, how can this happen? I am not pregnant one week late period

Cardiomagnyl: Basically this is magnesium hydroxide and Aspirin combined in a liquid form. It should NOT cause any issues with your periods. Depending on how much you are taking - you may get side effects of the aspirin - ear ringing or from the magnesium - diarrhea and possibly magnesium toxicity (in huge quantities) which may cause muscle weakness. Unfortunately I can't link this with irregular menses. ...Read more

Can I still get pregnant if period is late?

Yes...: You can get pregnant when you ovulate - if your cycle is regular and monthly, that is usually around 2 weeks after your last period started. If you period is late this cycle, you don't know when you ovulated (or if you did) so keep using contraception to avoid pregnancy. If at all unsure, check with your obgyn for an exam.
