My period is a week early and was heavy to begin with, however what concerns me is that is has lasted longer than my other periods and my breasts hurt, is this an early stage of pregnancy?

Probably not, but...: 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 (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. Urine tests are very accurate. ...Read more

My breasts hurt all the time, hysterectomy in 2010, but get the heavy pain and even some leaking common in pregnancy, no lumps felt though.?

Probably hormones: You didn't mention if your ovaries were removed with the hysterectomy or if you were placed on hormone replacement therapy. These along with age related changes can affect hormone balance in your body. A hormone called prolactin can cause milk discharge, and changes in estrogen can create breast tenderness. Get a breast examination and hormone panel blood test at your doctor to evaluate properly. ...Read more

I am 7 days late. Blood pregnancy test was neg at 4 days late. I'm nauseous and breasts hurt. Could the test be wrong? What else could it be? We are t

Relax and repeat.: Home pregnancy tests vary as to when a positive test will show. It measures HCG, the pregnancy hormone, which rises daily in early pregnancy. Repeat the test in a couple of days. If it is not positive and you still haven't gotten your period a blood test is available. Eat well and exercise. No smoking or alcohol. Good luck with the pregnancy. ...Read more

Check it again: I'd wait a week and check it again. Your symptoms are consistent with pregnancy.

You ovulate 14 days: Before each menstration begins. There in lies the problem. You are on the right track to be aware of your pregnancy risk, and to be in control of your knowledge. Since we can not predict the day of menstration, nor can we predict the day of ovulation. You can guess better, with the above info. There are many forms of birth control, and fertility planning talk it over with your dr. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

I haven't come on my period, I feel sick always, my breasts hurt and I have pains... Iv done a pregnancy test and it was negative.

Trust the test: 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. Sounds like just a late period. ...Read more

I'm getting cramps, my breasts hurt. My period is 6 days late. I took a pregnancy test two days ago and it came up negative. Could I still be pregnant?

Possible: If you had sex since your last period, you could be pregnant. Please repeat the pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. 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.
