Possibly Pregnant???

So I am 6 days late and sort of freaking out....I have been on birth control for the last 4 months or so and havent missed or been super late on taking it. My cycles arnt exactly "normal" and usually start a day or two late but never like this. I havent had any PMS symptoms when normally I have them all. I dont even think Im having pregnancy symptoms other than the missed period, tho I had a small amount of spotting last night. Ive taken TWO pregnancy tests, one yesterday afternoon and one this morning---both negative, is it too early to tell?? Im also a Type 1 diabetic but havent really noticed anything crazy with my blood sugars. I normally have higher readings the week or two before my period starts--which occurred---but no period.....Could I be??

Hello,

Home pregnancy tests differ in their sensitivity (i.e., the ability to detect the hormone of pregnancy when it is present).  The most sensitive of these are First Response Early Result and Clearblue Easy Earliest Results.  The earliest either of these might detect a pregnancy would be at the time of the missed menses (generally ~two weeks after conception).  If negative, repeat in one week (and/or pay a visit to your ob/gyn).  

Best regards,

Dr. Downing

Last period was July 28, 2007.  Next period should have been August 23.  Ovulation should've been on or around August 9th.  8 days late for period as of today (8/31).  Took a pregnancy test last night (8/30) and it came out negative.  Took a pregnancy test this morning (8/31) and it came out negative.  I'm having a lot of symptoms similar to pregnancy:  bloating, overly-emotional, cramping, lower back pain, food cravings (ice cream, mexican food, potato chips, etc).  The earliest doctor appointment I could make is for September 24th.  Right now I'm looking for some guidance/advice, anything anyone has to offer here...  
Forgot to mention some other things:  Additional symptoms include urinating much more frequently, no sore/tender/enlarged breasts though.  Also, I'm on Loestrin 24 Fe birth control pill.  Have been on it since April of this year.  My periods have always been regular, about 28 days in between and last for about 5 days.  My periods, after taking the pill, are still the same 28 days, but have gotten lighter and less days (about 3-4 days it lasts).  If I think of any more to add, I'll do so.

Someone please help before my doctor appointment!

My first day of my last period was July 12, 2007. I am on a 28 day cycle and Aug. 9th was when my next monthly was suppose to start. Yesterday, I thought that I started at first but I notice it was much different from my period it was a light pinkish purple color and it just spots. I have had minor cramps with it and I would be going to start my period on Sep. 6th if I would have had one Aug. I have never been late on my monthly and I have had it for 11 years now. I am just wondering does anybody think this is implantation bleeding? Me and husband want a baby so bad. Please somebody reply. Thanks

You'll have to wait until the earliest possible date to give her a pregnancy test. The 1st day of the missed period (if she even skips one) is usually the best time to test. Some tests do allow you to test a few days before her missed period (First Response) so you may try that. Have her test with first morning urine as the hcg is more concentrated at this time. The chances of her being pregnant are extremely low if the condom was used correctly. You may also want to consider enrolling your daughter in a sex ed class and advising her to make responsible decisions if she is too young or unprepared for parenthood. Good luck and I hope this was helpful.

I have a question to anyone...I just had a baby May 30th via c-section and I got my period July 29th and it was normal.  Well I have and it is Sept 3rd now and nothing!  I know after having a baby every thing gets screwed up and it takes a long time to get normal again.  But I took a pregnancy test yesterday just in case and it came up neg.  However with my son I took 2 tests after 2 weeks of not getting my period and I even went to the dr and they said NOPE...but after over a month I ended up taking another test and I was pregnant.  I'm really freaking out because I have a 3 month old now?  Am I just being paranoid????

my ex girlfriend and i had unprotected sex and the fallowign day she started her period. That was the last time we had sex. 3/4 weeks later she hooked up with some guy, unprotected sex again and when it was time for her period again she didn't start. She took a test and it was positive. How can i know if it's mine or not? I thought that since she started the next day it's not mine btu a female friend told me it takes soem time for the egg to attach so it could be either on of ours. Once we know how far along she is will that tell or should we do a blood test???? PLEASE HELP

Helllo Dr. Keith, thank you for being there for all the women out there.
My situation is the following.
I saw spotting from 9/12 to 9/18 and got my period from the 19th through the 21st (very short compared to my reg periods) also had some blood clots more than before. After only 3 days of my period I'm back to spotting again. Today is the 24th and i have very light spotting still. My period date was the 18th.
We took 2 pregnancy tests one on the 15th and the other on the 18th. Both came negative.

Were trying to conceive and we thought that were pregnant. I've never been on birth control and had regular periods lasting 5-7days. Weve been trying for 5 months and I'm really really scared now bec. I've never had spotting before and since the test came back negative what might be the cause of the spotting. Please help and advise. Thank you very much
