No periods OK: The DepoProvera may work differently with you than the implant. It is normal to NOT get periods on the Depo. I would not say you need to check for pregnancy unless you have pregnancy symptoms such as nausea, tender nipples, fatigue ...Read more

When was IUI: The pregnancy test should be done 2-3 weeks after your IUI or on the date your doctor instructed. If it has been 2-3 weeks since your IUI then the current test is likely reliable. Check with your fertility specialist to verify the date of your IUI and what day they wanted you to check a test ...Read more

What are the chances of a 32yr getting prego after 10 years having tubes tied and burned? And missed period 2 positive hpt and 1 neg hpt

1 in 300: The failure rate of tubal ligation is about 1 in 300 and is usually due to a tubal fistula. However, many people misread the home hpt as positive by letting it sit out too long. This is called an evaporation line. So, since tomorrow is friday and since most post tubal pregnancies end up in the tube. Call your doctor right away tomorrow morning and ask for a serum (blood) pregnancy test. ...Read more

Get a blood test: It's hard to say if you had a false positive because it is so early. While most hpts are pretty accurate, some will be inaccurate early on. Since you have missed your period, go to your doctor and get a blood test for hcg. It will be much more sensitive and should not give you a false negative or positive. ...Read more

Missed periods 20th june. Had unprotected sex last week, Is there a chance of conception. PregnancyT negative, best time to take PTest after ejaculation?

Yes: Urine pregnancy tests generally become positive within about 1 week of conception but hormonal levels vary and sperm live for three days so if you have not had another period in a week I would repeat the test. If you are not trying to become pregnant, use condoms or consult your provider for contraception.Irregular periods can be a sign of many things. I suggest talking to your health care provider. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Some thoughts...: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like birth control pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Seeing a doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. Pregnancy is the common cause of a missed period, if sexually active. ...Read more

My wife missed period 18 days. I do test but result is negative then when I do the test?

Tests are accurate: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives an accurate result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If worried, one can repeat a test after another week. ...Read more

I'm 16 days late for my period, I took three tests 3-4 days after my missed period and they were negative. What should I do?

Late period: It's hard to say why it happens, but sometimes we are just late for our period. Even if it's never happened to you before, it could be happening now. Things like medications, stress, travel, changes in your weight, can all cause a late period. If your pregnancy test is negative, repeat it once per week until you get your period, to be safe. If no period for a whole month, I would see your gyn doc. ...Read more

Missed period im going on 2 days late it's 31/32 days since last period and it still hasn't come took a pregnacy test and it was negative. Meaning??

May be nothing/or: Home pregnancy tests can be falsely negative early in a pregnancy because they depend on chemicals made by the implanting/developing embryo. An early morning concentrated specimen is most likely to be accurate, but repeat testing may give you a clearer answer. A few days delay may be unusual for you but may be just a fluke event. ...Read more

Late period: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated.

Many possibilities: If your period is 24 days late, you are spotting, and your pregnancy test is negative, it sounds like anovulation. There are a lot of things that can cause you not to ovulate including medicines, diseases like PCOS, thyroid disease, insulin rest/diabetes, pituitary problems, and adrenal problems, stress, weight changes, exercise, diet changes, etc. You do need to look into it since it can b serious ...Read more
