Bloated for almost four months now. Took a pregnancy test at the doctors office, came back negative. Should I be concern?
Pretty quick...: Pretty quick probably as soon as you notice a missed period, but if you want to do a stealth attack on that poor little thing growing in there, then, depending on the test, about 10 days. Why? You taking bets? BTW, a commercial, over-the-counter urine test is pretty good. And just think, instead of waiting at the doctor's office you can wait in line at Rite-Aid! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is a first response early result pregnancy test more accurate than a dr. S office urine test? My home pregnancy test was pos but doc office was neg!
Not likely.: No test is 100% accurate, unfortunately. I'd suggest waiting a week, repeating the home test, and if it's still positive, going back to your doctor's. If the doctor's office urine test is still negative, your doctor can order a blood test for pregnancy, which is more accurate. ...Read more
Took a pregnancy test the week my period was due at the doctors office and it tested negative, but my period has yet to arrive?
Repeat test: Typically, urine pregnancy tests are positive around the time a woman expects to come on her menstrual period. However, if conception was later than anticipated, the menstrual period may be delayed and the pregnancy test may turn positive a little later. Repeating the test a week from the previous one may be a good idea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How accurate is a urine pregnancy test done at a doctors office (afternoon) 26 days after an encounter? Did not miss a period
I had a pregnancy test at my doctor's office last week and it came back negative. I'm seeing signs though. What should I do? I'm scared!
Did you have unprotected Sex? Did you miss a period? If the answer to either is no, testing for pregnancy would be premature. If the answer to both is yes, and you are more than 7 days past the date of the period, do a home pregnancy test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
