Possible pregnancy? Home test says no, but...
My period is one week late and I am concerned about pregnancy. I'm tired, have nausea, swollen breasts, and "super senses" (smell and taste). I have also experienced cramping and emotional mood swings (crying jags, but for the most part feel strangely "calm"). I have tried two different types of home pregnancy tests ("Answer" and "EPT") and both are negative. Is it possible to still be pregnant?  In the past year, my period has been coming every 21 days instead of 28. I'm 30 years old. Could I be going through menopause? What gives? Thanks.

hi, me and my girlfriend don't use any type of protection at all and she's not necessarily having a lot of signs, but a few. Anyways, for the past few weeks she has bled a few times out of no where and they were short and very light, that has happned twice in the past 2 weeks and now she has missed her and it's been about 5 days now since. She took a HPT the other day and it was negative...i still think different though...if somebody can, please respiond.

How do you start October 8th Just Curious
Hot Flashes, Lack of concentration, Crazy realistic dreams, General gut feeling literally, Unusually "WANTING" husband-and anything else that moves ;) 2 negs. Hoping but feeling dissapointed. Looking for insite on if this was a regular occurance, aparently so. Only 7 days late but will try again in the morning. Curious about regaining period after stopping nuva ring or birth control in general. Does anyone know stopping birth control can cause other side effects?

I think I'm just paranoid, and my period is always irregular. But, I had sex at the beginning of this month and my boyfriend said he used a condom, and I don't remember the last time I got my period. I think it was mid/ end of June. And I'm young so I don't know anything about pregnancy. But I'm just thinking maybe he's lying and he didn't use a condom. I dont really have "the symptoms" like there's no swollen breasts, or morning sickness, but I am pretty hot all the time. And I'm having trouble going number 2... Like I said, I know nothing about pregnancy, but I'm just checking. I didn't take a pregnancy test or anything. I was just wondering if anyone has any advice for me. And how long does it take for you to start to show? Cause I've been gaining wait, and I've notice a little pudge on me, but I don't know what it's from. It's just been making me nervous and I figured asking for other peoples input might help.

I got off of the shot in September of 2006 and now it's August of 2007-I've been trying to get pregnant since I stopped taking the shot.  I had a period in the middle of June and then nothing in July and so far nothing this month-I have taken a total of 4 pg tests since the beginning of July and they have all been negative.  What should I do now??  Do I just wiat???  I have the symptons but I don't know if it's becaue I THINK I am or if I really am.  I am tired all the time, I pee all the time, I eat like a horse and I have stomach cramps and nausea in the morning and just fullness the rest of the day but I can't stop eating.  If you have any advice please let me know.

Thanks!

Well I am giving an update on how I've been doing since August.  I ended up switching doctors and going to someone new---she did a bunch of lab work and it came back that I have something alot of women have and don't realize it's called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome PCOS and that's where your ovaries don't produce an egg every month so you don't ovulate and you miss your periods.  It also causes an excess in the male hormone which causes you to gain weight around your middle, excess hair, moodiness (omg! lots of moodiness.)  So my dr started me on a perscription for 10 days to make me have a period and she also started me on an insulin perscription to level off my insulin levels and make my body "normal" again.  THen after I got my period she put me on Clomin, it's a fertility drug to get your body to produce bigger follicals on your ovaries so they can release a healthy egg to get pregnant.  I go back for my sonogram tomorrow to see if my follicals have gotten bigger where we can try for a baby this month.  If it doesn't work this month then I get to go through another cycle of Clomin next month, and so on and so forth for about 6 months.  So I will keep everyone posted----cross your fingers for me please!

Well I received the fertitlity injection and was told by my dr to go have sex! ; )  So it's been about a week and a half since then and I've got extremely tender breats, I'm very sleepy and I've been eating alot more.  So I'm hoping that I'm pregnant already.  I am suppose to call the dr on Oct 29th to tell them whether I have or have not started my period.  So we will go from there.  Please everyone wish me luck!  I'm so nervous, and excited!

Well I am happy to announce that I am pregnant!  They told me today from the blood test they took yesterday---I'm so excited!  I am 1 month along, so they have to keep an eye on my HG levels.  Then I will get a sonogram in about a week.  I'm extremely excited and I wish everyone out there the best of luck!

I have been trying for the last 5 months to have a baby with my boyfriend. I have had unprotected sex everytime we have had intercourse. Lately i have been really tired, and just not feeling like me. My stomach feels bloated, and My Nipples are very sore. I took an EPT pregnancy test and it came back negitive. But i still have the feeling that i am pregnant. This concerns me because the test came back negitive but i feel very different. I have been crying for no reason, and not really feeling like myself. is there a way i could be pregnant and it didnt show it? My last period was in May, and it was only 4 days.

My husband and I have been trying to conceive since we were married in August. The first day of my last normal period was October 1 - though it was about a week late. My next period didn't come until November 15 and was very, very  light and only lasted about 2 days. December 22 I spotted very lightly for about 6 hours and then nothing. January's was on the 10th and was between very light and just spotting, lasted about 36 hours. Got another period on Jan 28th. Lasted about 7 days, pretty light flow.
For the last 2 months I have been experiencing nausea at different times of the day, no matter what was eaten; fatigue no matter how well or long I slept; heartburn; mood swings; increased appetite; increased libido, increased watery discharge; fluttery movement type feelings in abdomen at different times. Experiencing nipple changes now, noticed it a few days ago. Never noticed the holes in my nipples before at all then the last few days. I've noticed they are very pronounced now and have quite a few white bumps on my nipples; and a few cluster-like bumps around the areola.
Could I be still be pregnant with negative hpts?

Sometimes the "cramping" that occurs can be due to implantation of the fertilized egg in the uterus... It's not always menstrual cramping...

I have a very regular period..every 27/28 days. My husband and I just started trying last month to get pregnant. Right now I am 1 day late however, about 5 days ago i started feeling crampy...the cramps felt like my uterus was contracting or pulling and sometimes there were sharp pains coming from my ovaries. I have experienced some mild nausea. It feels like tge puke is just sitting there occasionally it makes me gag. All day today the pain in my ovaries/uterus has went away there is a slight bit od discomfort but nothing like it was. My lower back has started hurting now..kinda sharp dull pain. I still kinda have the blah feing as far as nausea still have never thrown up. I have not been very hungry lately either and ive had off and on mild headaches. I took a pregnancy test this morning and the test came back negative. I just dont feel myself. Any feedback would be appreciated...i have never been pregnant nor have i ever had a pregnancy scare.

Hi,
Im 22 and my period usually comes the middle of every month...in December it was a bit early and lighter than usual...no period this month yet n none of the usual signs. I feel so bloated and keep feeling like i have sweet lil butterflies in my tummy for the past 2weeks. My boyfriend n I of 2 years are not exactly TTC but we are also not trying to prevent it other than pulling out. I took a HPT at night the 26th n its neg...took another one thenext day n it had 1 solid line n one faint line( i had forgot to check it n think it was 15 mins later) I then took another test today at night n its also neg. but i really feel as tho I am... I also cant sleep at night for the past 3 weeks bc im too hot. Afraid to go to the doctor bc if im not that is another bill added. i believe im about 15 days late. advice needed -Tiffany

i am 20 years old and think there is a chance of being pregnant. I had intercourse three nights with no contraception. It has only been a week but im always tired getting headaches, feeling fatigue. i thought i might just be ill but i dont feel sick throughout the full day just morning and night. i had a period just before the the first night out of three which makes me wonder if i had a chance of being more fertile? I have taken a home pregnancy test and came up negative however it has only been a week. What do i think or do?

Can anybody assist me perhaps.. Im so so nervous. I'm 30  years old, I'm almost 2 days late with my period, had protected sex in the form of condoms (No leakage - I'm possitive) with breast tenderness. I have only been late once before. I bought myself  a pregnancy test, I'm scared to death because I dont feel ready for a child yet.
Please please advise and prayers will be appreciated...
