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.

Probably not: Honestly, I highly doubt it. You're young, and it's not abnormal at all to have strange, odd, sometimes short, not-normal periods when you're young. AND especially given the fact that you've now had 2 negative pregnancy tests as well, both after having periods, I would be very surprised if you were pregnant.

Unprotected sex in May, on birth control, had three periods since, all were short but one. Can I still be pregnant? Hpt neg

Unprotected sex in May, on birth control, had three periods since, all were short but one. Can I still be pregnant? Hpt neg

Highly Unlikely: The bcp can make the periods shorter and lighter. By this time, even the home pregnancy tests would be positive. Not really a chance you are pregnant. :)

Yes: Very early pregnancies may not show up in a urine test. If your next period is late, repeat the test. Or, you may call your doctor and get a blood pregnancy test - it is more sensitive.

22 days late on period took hpt was negative could I still be pregnant?

Potentially: Although, your chance of being pregnant is pretty skimpy, it is a potential in rare instances. You may want to repeat it again in a week. If still negative, go see your physician. You may need to take some pills to "jump start" your periods again.

Last period was 8/20/14 hpt was negative 3 times. Can i still get pregnant with no cycle?

Unlikely: It is very unlikely that you could get pregnant if you are not having regular periods. It would be good for you to follow up with your doctor to find out why you are missing periods.

Time to see your: Doctor. If you did the hpt correctly, those are generally accurate. If you have other signs of pregnancy, please see your doctor for a physical examination and ultrasound to settle the issue.

I haven't had a period for two months now. I've taken 3 hpt and they've all came back negative. Could I still be pregnant?

I haven't had a period for two months now. I've taken 3 hpt and they've all came back negative. Could I still be pregnant?

Very unlikely: Pregnancy I'd very unlikely with 3 negative pregnancy tests. This could be due to stress,diet,exercise,weight,medicines including some contraceptives,and diseases like thyroid disease,diabetes,insulin resistance,PCOS,adrenal disorders,and pituitary tumors.a full history,exam,and appropriate testing are necessary to determine the cause.Hope this helps.

I had 5 hpts that all turned out to be negative.My period came (regular to heavy) although 2 days behind schedule. Can i still be pregnant?

Probably not: Urine hpt are pretty reliable although a blood pregnancy screen may be more accurate at times. Two days late on a period is within the normal range of variability.

Pregnancy test would: have been positive by that far out if you were pregnant. Reasons for missed/late periods: low body weight, obesity, marked weight ^ or v, over-exercise, endurance athletics, breast-feeding, ^ stress, illness, eating disorders (bulimia or anorexia), anovulatory cycle (no egg released), travel, hormone irregularities, drug use, meds (i.e., birth control) or medical problems (i.e. PCOS).

I had all pregnancy symptoms but period just started 3 days early. Negative hpt but I still have all the symptoms and feel pregnant. Why is this?

I had all pregnancy symptoms but period just started 3 days early. Negative hpt but I still have all the symptoms and feel pregnant. Why is this?

May retest later...: Today's home pregnancy tests are very accurate, but if done too early, a negative result may be due to testing too soon. A correctly done urine test will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. A woman can repeat the test if she did the first test too early, such as less than two weeks after conception.

WHY WORRY!: A NORMAL period is proof that you are not pregnant. Stories that you hear are just stories. Most of them were not normal periods. So, please relax and accept the good news.

Yes: Repeat pregnancy test in 1 week and if its negative, you can be assured that you are unlikely to be pregnant

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's 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.

Can you get a neg on a sensative hpt when period is 2days late and still be pregnant? Are chances small?

Can you get a neg on a sensative hpt when period is 2days late and still be pregnant?  Are chances small?

Small: By the time your period is due, if you are pregnant, you should be able to pick it up on the pregnancy test. It would be uncommon that a negative pregnancy becomes positive later, but its not impossible. If you like, repeat the preg test in 1 week to reassure yourself. Best wishes Dr M
