As . As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear a woman is having a light or missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. There's no way to know whether you are pregnant or not without the test. 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. An emergency contraceptive pill such as Next Choice can prevent pregnancy by preventing the implantation of the fertilized egg, but if the egg is already implanted (ie you're pregnant) then it will not affect it. There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to not have your period, you should contact your doctor. Read more...

My last period was Oct 26. I took 1 pregnancy test and came back negative. I have no symptoms but I never missed a period. What should I do?

I would recommend a first morning specimen tomorrow - If you are pregnant - there should be enough HCG in your urine to make the test +.

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...
