how long after you miss your period should you take pregnancy test
i am new to the site and was hoping someone could clarify some information. i am currently ttc and am 6 days late for my period i have taken pregnancy tests x2 both bfn. i was told by friends i should wait at least 2 weeks after i miss my period to take the test is this correct? a family member just tested positive after 1 day late. i am so confused and disappointed at this point. thanks

My 1st pregnancy, I had a regular period & was already pregnant. It all happened in the month of Oct. 2002. Everybody around me figured I was except ME! Well by the time I went to the Dr, late Nov early Dec, I was 8wks & some days gestation. Yes you can have a regular normal period & still be already pregnant!

Me and my hubby started to try for a 2nd kid last month. I ovulated March 15. Took the first test on Marxh 28 when I was a day late and it said not pregnant. But I have all the symptoms. I have very light cramps going on and off since the 27. I was bleeding on and off for 3 1/2 days. I Even have full boobs and the part that gets dark is getting darker every day. I even have blue blood vains on my feet legs boobs and arms. I took about 9 more test every time something new happens and all of them say not pregnant. I know I am pregnant. I think b/c me and my hubby is trying to have a 2nd kid I am looking for the symptoms that come up before you can get a + on a HPT.

I personally believe that woman ovulate differently.
For example: some may have sex two to a day before they are due a period and then later discover that theire period hasn't come. These women need to wait 10-15 days before testing. Before will indefinately give a negative or false result being void. Women who have sex mid period which is 11-14 days after or 11-14 days before a period can immediately take a test the day of a missed period or as soon as a day late. The two type of pregnancy patterns are different so knowing when you have sex and when your period is due plays a big role in getting pregnant and knowing what to do next. Just remember even if you do have a period you still could be pregnant if you had unprotected sex the other side of 14 days. Your period may not change it may not in most causes stop completely. Again every woman is different. The best tests for suspected further dated pregnancies is he test called "the predictor" and in most obviously would be precise. The second way of testing is by your gp or family Dr.
Either way ovulation can be at any point during your gap cycle. What you read and see in books is only based on a typical estimate of a typical regular cycle.

2 days late with my period. I am a newlywed. We've been trying for 5 months. I usually get sore breasts (and other PMS symptoms) 1 week before my period. I am never late. Now I'm two days late, my breast just started getting sore 2 days ago. Took a couple of pregnancy test both negative. Could I be pregnant or I'm just really late.

I had a period and was pregnant just like Sheryl333. I was pregnant already but have since learned that it might have. Been implantation bleeding, which occurs around the same time as your period. I sometimes have light periods so it  was no different but I will assume that is what it was. I am ttc as well. My husband is 40 and I am 31 and we have been trying for nine months now.
When I got married to him Imoved 500 miles to be with home so stress can change your ovulation. My period is like clockwork until I moved. I have not missed a period but the date changes. I am now two days late according to my calendar tracking but it was an average length of a cycle. I think I might still have my period but just waiting. I had a negative test two days before but it happened last time I was pregnant. I got negative tests and my period... but I have a baby from it! Good luck to everyone

Honestly it depends on how high your hormone levels are.  My sister in law didn't get a positive test until she was almost 4 months pregnant . And even when it was positive it was so faint that we couldn't even tell if it was the lighting or what so she went to get a blood test done and her doctor said she was definitely pregnant and put her on prenatal vitamins right away.  He said it's normal for Ur hormone levels to be low if your diet is poor or u are dehydrated.

Okay, i'm seriously freaking out. So i'm already 21, the first day of my last period was on september 24 2015, and my guy and i had protected sex last october 15 and october 21. we checked for any breakage and leaks and there were none. i was supposed get my period around october 22 and it's already the 30th but still no period. I've been pretty regular with my cycle, usually in a 27-30 days cycle. I've been feeling bloated and easily tired recently, also having white/light yellowish discharge, nipples are sensitive to touch, and mood swings (tho mood swings are pretty normal for me). no cramping or nausea tho. I took a pregnancy test last october 27, and it came out negative. I'm planning on taking it again a week after, which is on november 3. I'm not sure if i'm pregnant since we've always had sex wearing a condom and this never happened before. On the week that i got my period tho, around september 24 to october 2 , i had a major submission that stressed me out quite a bit (like i only had 3-4 hours of sleep, ate only once or twice a day for 4-5 days) So i'm not sure if its the stress that's throwing my period off or if i'm really pregnant. Someone please help!
