If I missed a period, does that mean I am pregnant?

Not necessarily. There are many causes for a missed period, if your preg test is negative, please see your gyn for an evaluation.
No. It is certainly the first possibility we think of, particularly in someone who was previously on a predictable cycle pattern. A simple urine pregnancy test is the first step. If it is negative other avenues should be explored. Other possibilities for delayed menses are hormonal contraceptives that suppress menses or anovulation. Your physician can help sort out the cause.

I tested today 2 days after missed period. Its negative. I got symptoms 1 week after sex. And continuous 2 days before miss period. Can I b pregnant?

Misinformed. Your symptoms are being incorrectly labeled by you as pregnancy symptoms when they are not. That would be impossible. A fetus is not conceived for up to five days after sex and then is not connected physically or chemically to a female's body until it is big enough to have blood cells and chemicals to share, about fourteen days after conception. You are not pregnant. The tests say no. Read more...

Feelin vrry pregnant neg test missed period 18 days now had Depo-Provera shot but miss 2 wks sexin strsight thru unprotected plenty lower cramps m I prego????

Maybe. If you have been on depo for awhile or started it on the 2nd or 3rd day of your last period, pregnancy is unlikely. Depo does cause irregular bleeding and then the absence of periods and this is likely to be the cause of the late period. It does not help with prevention of STDs though and the cramping could be a symptom of one of those. You need to use condoms to help decrease that risk, Be safe. Read more...

I have absolutely. No way to tell if you're pregnant. You, on the other hand, can find out by doing an hpt. By the way, your testosterone is mildly elevated and your tsh, while "normal" is not appropriate for age. See an endocrinologist about both. You're probably overweight and Insulin resistant, and may actually have some degree of pcos. Read more...

I have a missed period. I done a home pregnency test 1 week later after my missed period. But it signals negetive. Am I pregnet or not? Please help.

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. Read more...

Never missed period. Just missed by a week and on 8th day spotted/bled a little which was dark and last 3 days. Is it very possibly I could be pregant?

Could be. If you are sexually active, you must consider pregnancy anytime you are late for a period. It is common to have spotting in early pregnancy. I would recommend that you do a home pregnancy test. If it is negative, you may be late due to stress, change in physical activity levels, weight changes, or many other things. Read more...
