I have missed two periods , taken several pg tests the last one a day ago and all are negative. How likely would it be at this point to be false neg?

Kinda strange...: Look for other signs of pregnancy (enlarged/tender breasts, morning sickness, weight gain, etc). It is possible that these are false negative home pregnancy tests, but it sounds highly irregular especially with the 2 missed periods! because you've had a baby before, we know the plumbing works. Maybe it's time for you to have a serum HCG test or a pelvic ultrasound to see what's going on! ...Read more

Very unlikely: Pregnancy tests are accurate and reliable, and although no test is 100%, pregnancy tests are close. If you have more than one negative pregnancy test then it is very unlikely you are pregnant. I agree with your Gyno's plan. You should of course have one more pregnancy test prior to taking the pill(s) to start your period. ...Read more

Often : Often times when you miss a pill your hormone levels are off thus resulting in spotting or light bleeding. On the other hand the fact that you missed a pill puts you at risk for pregnancy. So implanttaion bleeding is a possibility. You should have started your period by now or be expecting it soon. If it does not come take a pregnancy test. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it possible for me to miss my menstrual cycle because of shingles?i've never missed any of my periods before

Pain Is Stressful...: Then I am happy you have never been under much stress before, leading a quiet, healthy, peaceful life. Or at least let's hope so. Because stress can fool with your hormones & then filter down to the ovary level & delay ovulation. Not in everybody, but maybe in you. Sure, it could be a coincidence & something else is happening. If so, after two months see your doc. And don't forget a pregnancy test ...Read more

Is it possible that I am pregnant? My menstrual cycle is irregular normally; i can miss my period up to 2 months late. My partner and i had intercourse several times before and after my period and he ejaculated in me every time. My last period was october

As : As doctors, anytime a fertile, sexually active woman has an abnormally light or missed period, the first thing we do is rule out pregnancy. You can either take another home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period, so another negative test would help confirm that you are not pregnant. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. Since your period is usually irregular, this makes it difficult to time fertility windows and know what a missed period means. Since you had an infection the last time you had these symptoms, you should probably be checked by your doctor either way. Good luck! ...Read more
