Do a home preg test: If you had unprotected sex and now experiencing delay in your period, you can do a home pregnancy test to reassure yourself that you aren't pregnant.
Women do experience bleeding even when they are pregnant and can be misleading as a period. Do a home pregnancy test.

Likelihood of blood test showing pregnant tomorrow after month and a half missed period & multiple negative home preg tests?

You tell me!: Did you do the tests correctly? How often/when in your cycle did you have sexual encounters? Have you been using any sort of birth control? Irregular or missed periods/cycles in the past? When did you perform the tests in relationship to missed period? There are many more questions I could ask to help determine that "likelihood". Don't have unprotected sex if you don't know how these affect you ...Read more

It's been a month since miscarriage and I've been bleeding for two weeks straight two weeks after miscarriage. I took an equate pregnancy test and its still showing pregnant. Ultrasound shows its all complete. What's going on?

It's been a month since miscarriage and I've been bleeding for two weeks straight two weeks after miscarriage. I took an equate pregnancy test and its still showing pregnant. Ultrasound shows its all complete. What's going on?

It takes a few weeks: It takes a few weeks for the beta HCG level to drop after a miscarriage. If you did not have a D&C and aborted spontaneously, you should be getting blood drawn every week for a quantitative beta HCG level to make sure the beta level goes down to zero.
Ultrasound is not perfect at diagnosing retained tissue. If you continue to bleed, you may need a d&c. See your doctor! ...Read more

I've missed my period for a month and three weeks then I had my period now I'm showing symptoms of being pregnant but I got three negatives from home?

Not pregnant: 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 a doctor to discuss irregular periods. ...Read more
