Home Pregnancy Test



Manufacturer's of today's home pregnancy tests claim that they are 99% effective when properly
used. The only more accurate tests are blood tests administered by physicians. But when
and how to use them, and which are the most accurate are questions that still remain. Are they all
the same?  What if the test is negative, but "I just have that feeling. . ."?

Pregnancy test work by detecting  Beta-hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), a hormone produced
by the placenta in a pregnant woman's uterus.  The hormone is then released into the blood stream and ultimately excreted in the urine. HCG usually becomes detectable in the urine about 10 days after conception, or about 4-5 days before the missed menstrual period. Because it can be difficult to know exactly when conception occurred, or
when exactly the period is supposed to start, most experts recommend waiting 5-10 days after the period is late
to ensure that the test is accurate.

Most pregnancy tests on the market will show a positive result by 7-10 days after the missed menstrual period.  Often though, it may be desirable to have the result earlier. Some of the home tests are accurate enough to detect the HCG as soon as it is present, even at very low levels.  Two studies have confirmed claims of the manufacturers of FIRST RESPONSE Early Result Test to detect a pregnancy five days before the missed period. Clear Blue Easy claims to be accurate within 4 days before the missed period.   If you want to know as quickly as possible,these two brands are probably the best tests to use, but you will need to be willing to pay a little extra for that privilege!

It is certainly possible to have a false negative (test result is negative when the woman actually is pregnant).
A study done in 2004 evaluated 18 different home pregnancy tests and found that they missed up to 85% of pregnancies when testing was done on the first day of the missed period.  Almost all of them had become positive by
one week after the missed period. So if your first test is negative wait a week and test again.

How to improve the accuracy of your tests:

*Use urine collected first thing in the morning--it is more concentrated.  You can collect the urine and save it in a labeled container in the refrigerator if you need to run to the store for the test kit.

*Don't drink too much fluid before testing.  This will dilute the urine.

*If you are testing later in the day, make sure it has been at least four hours since you last emptied your
bladder.

*Check the expiration date on your test.

*Follow the directions exactly as specified in the package insert.

*Read the instructions to make sure you are not taking any medications that will alter the test results

Other things to note: A pregnancy problem (impending miscarriage, tubal pregnancy, etc.) can cause a false negative result. Rarely infertility medications can cause a false positive result(test result is positive when the woman is not pregnant). Finally, HCG causes some of the typical early pregnancy symptoms such as breast tenderness and nausea, so eventually, your own body will be likely to alert you.

The best way to double check if you suspect your test is not accurate, or if you simply need peace of mind, is to visit your doctor or local clinic. Many doctor's offices or clinics offer free pregnancy tests--so inquire before going in.

I have a question.. I am on Seasonique (birth control). It only gives me a period every three months..I know i havent been the most accurate at takin my pill at the same time everyday. I have also never been pregnant so now im worried that im pregnant but my period is not supposed to start for two more months, all the pregnancy tests all say take one week before your missed period. I took one anyways and it was negative. Is there any chance I could be pregnant?

I was on the pill when I became pregnant.  And, yes, I had that feeling, I kind of just knowing that I was pregnant.  It was different than being nervous about it - I knew I was pregnant.  About a week before I was supposed to get my period, I started taking the early home pregnancy tests.  I bought a package of 6.  After taking three tests over a period of three days that showed a negative (although on one test, the line was really thick), my fourth test showed I was in fact pregnant.  Planned Parenthood confirmed it for me a week later (although the test they used said it was only a very faint positive, it was a loud and clear positive on the early home test a week before).

At that same time my hunger increased to more than it ever really has and I was having constant backaches.  It felt like I was going to get my period, but the PMS was about 10x worse than usual.  And, wouldn't you know it, I was pregnant.

Good luck to you, and if you are pregnant, whatever decision you make (to go through with the pregnancy or not) will be what's best for you.

My last period was August 22nd...it is now October 5th.....had nausea and threw up a week ago two days in a row after having breakfast, then a few days later started cramping...I thought it was my period but it still has not showed up yet. I did two home preg tests and they were both negative. I went to the doctor and he told me to give it another week since my tests were negative. I am still cramping everyonce in a while on a daily basis. Im afraid that if im not pregnant I might have a cyst or something wrong. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

i woke up fine after drinking but later that day was walking and felt like i was lifted off my feet and mind went blank and kinda had some kind of short hot flashes and my heart was racing like crazy and someone suggested that that wouldn't happen after drinking which it never has before. and i still feel kinda spacey today occasionally when i walk but not as bad as if i were to faint. but... idk what is going on and my friend said i should get checked out... even though i haven't done anything for a month and had my period a few weeks ago...but also heard you can still get your period so... someone help me out? i don't know what to believe but i never felt that way before

to sophieLou, I went threw the same thing and wanted kids that early too, I ended up trying for 5 yrs and after faking pain so the drs would investigate etc to see if it was a reproductive problem it turns out it was my partner who was infertile! We broke up before he found this out and I got pregnant to my loving husband but just dont always think its you ok it might just as likely be him!!!!!!!!!   good luck xx

i have been having cramps like my period is coming. i had my last period September 22, 2008- September 27, 2008. i don't have a regular period and i never have. it seems like i have a period every 2 weeks. it is not October 16, 2008 and i haven't started yet. I've never had a 28 day cycle, ever. i have been eating a lot more, i feel this sickening feeling when i eat, my stomach hurts all the time, i am starting to get a bit of fatigue, and some other symptoms. i know being pregnant might be an option, i took a HPT 2 days ago and it said negative. if i am its said that i am 4 weeks and some odd days now. and i have also been told that i should be able to find out this week. if i am going to have 28 day cycle i should start by October 20th. i don't understand what my body is going through if i'm not pregnant. any advice will help.

My last period came on in Aug, torwards the end of Aug and it went off on Sept 2, 2008. I had surgery(breast reduction) on the 3rd of sept 2008. It is now october 16th and i still haven't seen a period.I received a pregnacy test on the 3rd on sept in order to have surgery, it was negative. I have had sex once since the surgery, but i am certain that the condom didn't break. Should i be concerned or is it cause of surgery, that my period hasn't came on.

by mzmitch, Oct 16, 2008
I just took the test it came out negative. Im going to do it again in the morning. I do not know why it never came but, okay, i guess i will just have to wait until my period is ready to come. Maybe the surgery had a greater effect on my body than i thought. Thanks

I had my tubes tied a little over a year ago. Suddenly, I am feeling pregnant. My breasts are really tender, my vagina itches uncontrollably, I am bloated and sometimes get nausous and dizzy. All of the same symptoms that I had with my previous pregnancies. I know the feelings because I have two kids and have had three miscarriages. I had my cycle, regularly, this month and have already taken two pregnancy tests that came back negative. Is it possible that I can be pregnant?  I am anxious to find out asap because I have a genetic blood disorder that causes clotting during pregnancy and if I don't start heprin as soon as I find out that I am pregnant, I lose the babies. Any response would be appreciated.

Ok I have a question, I have not had my period for 3 almost 4 months, I have a 9 mth old daughter  & I havent been checked by GYN since my 6 week postpartum check up. Which it is really not time for another one yet, but anyways after my check up I started birth control(The Patch ) Well it broke my skin out so I quit using it, Then My Husband & I got married and I put one on again for 1 week then took it off again and I havent wore one since( & A friend told me that week didnt really do any good cause it takes that long to get in your system) and needless to say we had unprotected  sex on our honeymoon (the reason I was putting the patch on), Now I havent had my period since the month before I put it on. like i said at the top 3 or 4 months, I have take so many PG test & they are all negative. In my last pregnancy I had to take meds for my HCG hormone level being to low, is it poss. that my HCG levels are too low this time and making test read neg.? Or is it something else.... Someone please help

My wife and I are trying to have a baby. She went off the pill approx. 6 weeks ago @ the start of the new cycle. She is 2 weeks late with her period, though we have done 2 home pregnancy tests and they have both been negative. We have followed the instructions. Could she still be pregnant or is this her body readjusting to not being on the pill? She said she has NEVER been late for her period. I only ask this question as we live in a town where it is very difficult to get a doctor's appointment. Was hoping someone could help- then we may have to see a doctor.

This is a great article...
I do have a question for you? Not sure to post it here or not, so I will.
I was put on  Ortho Tri-cyclen Lo  July 2008. I had very irregular periods before I started them. Soon after I had my period every month. I got married in October and now have sex without condoms. In December, I was supposed to start my period on the 21st. Instead I started the 17th and stopped on the 20th. ( In October I was to have my period on my honeymoon...the doctors said skip the green pills that week and start a new pack...that is wh y the dates are off..it's confusing I know!) Now it is January and I was supposed to start my period 2 days ago...still  nothing. Lately I feel nauseated, and urinate often sometimes. And I am restless more so than usual. So I am wondering if I am pregnant? I know the pill is there to help protect you somewhat...but my mother had 4 children on birth control...So I am wondering. Please help!

hi, im 18, and my boyfriend and i ALWAYS use every precaution when we have sex, except for the pill which i cannot take because of an auto immune disease. For the past seven years since my first menstrual cycle, it has never come regularly. it's not unusually for me to miss anywhere from two to 10 periods. Whenever I do get it, it is never the same date as the last (i.e. i once had one on march third, and the next one didnt arrive until oct 30) I feel pregnant, always hungry, constant headaches, backpains, tender breasts, cramps, nausea, and dizziness, but no spotting (considering how rare my peroid is, this doesn't surprise me) because these symptoms started in the last 4 1/2 weeks, i'm worried the pregnancy is definately a possiblity, but the home test negative (but i'm not sure when my 'missed peroid' would be). what do you think the odds of pregnancy are with all of these signs?

Hi, I have a question and hope you can help. I'm 18 and have been on my pill for 2 and a half years now. About two months ago, I was sick alot and missed a couple of my pills also. Now I'm wondering if I'm pregnant. I ddn't have a period that month after not taking my pill right, and was nauseous, vomiting, sore swollen breasts, hungry to the point where I have hunger pains even though I'd only eaten an hour ago. This has carried on for the past 6weeks about, and now I'm stressing because it seems no one wants to give me an answer. I'v been to the docs, and had a urine test, and it was negative as were the home one's I did. My stomach is also swollen just under my belly button. The other day I bled properly for about an hour with stomach cramps but then it went again. Just disappeared. And then in the bath that night, I noticed there was white thick skin stuff coming out of me, (at which point I freaked out). No pain though. Now I'm wondering if I was pregnant but have miscarried. The docs are being very unhelpful about the whole situation but I am beside myself. I have exams coming up and can't cope with not knowing what's happening with my body. It also not really helping my relationship. Please help.

my girlfriend got pregnant 2 months after taking accutane. we dont want to have an abortion. and we were wondering what the chances were that the baby was ok. the box says that 1 month after you are off accutane it is out of your system. she is 15 and in athletics. she runs everyday and we were wondering if that sped up the amount of time in which the accutane got out of her system. can anyone help me? she got off at the end of january and we think she got pregnant at the end of may. we had 3 positive pregnancy test june 24th. is she ok?? PLEASE HELP ASAP!! :(

hi, i am 16yrs old. i have just got birthcontrol at planed parenthood. i am not extreamly worried that i may be pregnant because they made me take a urine test(but i dont know exactly what it was used for). i just had my period a week ago and yet i have been experiencing weird thing, like, not eatting that much, kinda moody, and i have recently been getting some bloodly discharge. i have had a blatter infection 2 times and i thought that might be it, but i am not sure. but i have been having unpertected sex(but he always pulled out, so he never actually came inside of me). am i pregnant?

My daughter gave birth to a daughter who was born with a strain of herpes - don't know what strain - can't find out - she says she contracted it from being exposed to shingles during early part of her pregnancy - the baby was also born with hydrancephaly - did the herpes cause the babies condition?  Can I pass the herpes virus to others such as my other grandchildren, pregnant women in my family, or newborns in my family.  I am afraid to visit my newborn great neice or go to another neices baby shower for fear of passing it on.  I have been with the baby when she was born and am afraid also of passing it to me other grandchildren etc etc.  Could I have contracted the herpes from just being around her?  I have stayed secluded because I don't know if I can pass it or not - as far as I know I have never had the virus but haven't been tested since the birth of my granddaughter.

Wondering if anyone can help me, including the doctor:

I've had 4 negative test and I havent had a period since June 30 and today is August 20. On Aug 25 it'll officially be 2months since my last period.

When I lay on my stomach I fell pain. Not extremely bad but enough to not lay on it. I sleep on my side or my back. I can't sleep on my stomach anymore.

I've been having symptoms like fatigue, lower back pain, mild cramping/bubbly feeling in stomach, headaches, extreme gas, (sorry if this is TMI) but normally I only take "poops" like once every other day, now its like everyday sometimes twice a day! My boobs are tender, & starting to look darker around my nipples. The veins in my boobs are more visible then ever!! I had a little bit of nausea but not much, I just always feel like I am. I never actually threw up, I just gagged.

I didn't have one in July @ all. & today is August 20 & still nothing! August 25 will officially be 2 months w/o a period. It was suppose to come July 28, so from July 28 to Aug. 20th-- I'm 23 days late. but if u count from my past period date (Jun. 30)--It's 51 days. Plus, I'm not the skinniest person so it's hard 2 tell if I'm growing. idk how 2 tell...advice welcome on how 2 tell

I took my 4th test today (Aug 20) and it came out negative. It was clear blue by the way.

I want to go to the doctors to see for sure but I don't have insurance and I haven't had to get one but I'm guessing the ultrasounds aren't cheap.

Help!! So my husband and i are trying for a baby, i had my mirena coil out on 20th July and had some bleeding on and off but nothing since the end of July. Its 27th August now and no period, as far as i can recall my cycles used to be on the short side if anything. I have been feeling exhausted tired and been having dull abdominal ache. My nipples have become unusually sensitive, and i am feeling hot and nauseous. I would assume this was pre menstrual as i have taken multiple h.p.t that have all come back negative. Been feeling this way for couple of weeks and still no period! My doctors won't see me or do a bloodtest, although i'm not feeling anxious or desperate about it, the not knowing either way is annoying and frustrating, could i be pregnant, or is there something else a miss? Aargh!!

i was concerned, can u please help answer my question....i have been getting several yeast infections due to birth control, but they havent been that bad just a lil irritation and some discharge. Now me and my husaband both took antabiotic for the yeast infection since we were passing it back and forth to each other....we had not had sex for a while so we deciding to mess around with each other, so i performed oral sex on him....could it be possible that i can get a yeast infection in my mouth? i know for a fact that he had no redness and discharge and we were done taking our meds,but i know that a yeast infection takes time to cure...should i worry?.

I normally run on a 35 day cycle not like your average 28 days... i have been spotting for the past five days very light and brown also noticing more secreations sometimes clear sometimes a little cloudy, with my 35 day cycle my period does not start for another week and if it was running by the 28 day cycle I would have started by now. Im not on birth control and my boyfriend and I are actually trying to get pregnant. The last time was actually two weeks ago today, I took a test just now and it came back negative. I have also accured the common cold this past week so could that be why? I was hoping this was a sign of pregnancy =(

I need some help:  

I have been on Minerba (IUD) for over a year now. I have an 11 year old son, so I know how it feels to be pregnant. Recently, in the past 2 months, I have had irregular periods, very little and spotting for the most part. I had drastically gained weight. I have taken 3 different types of home pregnancy test only to result in negative. I went to see my doctor but she thinks it might be the IUD that is causing weight increase and stomach discomfort. I have also taken a blood test for the HCG, but it came back negative. Currently, my stomach keeps growing and I can feel moment inside. I am due for an ultrasound test tomorrow. What are the chances that I could be pregnant? or could I have an infection due to the IUD?  Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi I need help with because I am so out of the loop that it crazy..

OK recently I have been feeling a little funny, like I might be pregnant again,

1. because I had unprotected sex and twice in the month of September, which is so unlike me, but I did not let him come in me..
Any way 10 days after our first unprotected session I had my period and one week later we had our second session of unprotected sex. one week later my started having slight breast and back pain as well stomach cramps. which I never get so early before my period. So I took a pregnancy test the day my period was due and it came out negative, the next day my period came.

2. It has been a week sense my last period and I still get sharp pain in my pelvic area and sharp shooting pain in my breast. but it is not heavy like most people are describing, it feel normal actually other than the stomach cramps and little back pain followed but the breast pain. I feel rather fine.

But is it a possibility that I am pregnant.

My husband and i recently got married and are both very excited to have a baby. Ever since i started my period as a teenager it has been very irregular. Receently i have been trying to chart my cycle. (I started that last month.) On October 8th i started my period. So 21st of the month we tried..according to the average 28 day cycle i should of started my period on the 5th of november. I tested the next day on Nov 6th. and it was negative. It is now the 11th, so that would make it day 35 of my cycle. Normally i can tell a day or 2 before i get my period. this time i dont feel anything.(except for my head hurting) Now i have the big question on my mind could i be pregnant? Or do i have an abnormal cycle of over 35 days? I would like some advice on what that could mean? also when should i take another test?
Thanks for your help.

Ok, I have been taking clomid (fertility pill) for about 4 months now. This last time I messed my dosage up. I am suppose to take three pills each day 5-9. well I didnt get my pills on time so I took 5 pills days 7-9. (I know I shouldnt have done that, but my soon to be husband and I really want a baby.) My period usually comes based on a 30 day cycle, this month I should have started on the 14, but instead I have had a brown discharge, (very light, no more then dime size spots) everyday since I was suppose to have had my period. Today is the 24, so its been ten days now. What does it mean?

then my period was 8 days late and when i got it it was very short and super light which is odd because mine are always heavy and last the full time. and even though i haves threw up yet i feel like i am going to a lot and i have head aches, cramps, hot flashes, breast are sore,i am tired all the time,and more.
can i be pregnant or is it all in my head because i want a child?

She kept goin to the doc cause she knew something wasn't right with her and all the weight gain and prego signs but every time the blood test said no so they gave her and ultrasound and thats how they found out she was prego...

I've been having almost all the same symptoms as I did when I got pregnant with my son who is now 18months old. My fiance and I wanted to start trying for another baby since October last year, and April was the last time that I've seen my period. I've taken about 15 home pregnancy tests and about 3 or 4 blood tests. All came back negative, but it's bugging me that my doctor won't even do a ultrasound to see what's going on. I do know that sometimes the lab can make mistakes with blood work. I know someone in my family who had the same thing happened and finally the doctor did an ultrasound and found out that she was pregnant. How can that be possible? I know I suffer with endometriosis and it can basically cause some of the symptoms that I'm having, but how to I convince my Gyno to do an ultrasound to see what's going on?

This is my 2nd cycle whereby I have been taking the clomid 2 tablets per night. I start to take last month. That time my period was very weird. I am supposed to get on 23rd May but then it came early on 20th and it was so litter. Then it came as normal for 1 week. But than 2 weeks before my period which supposed to be on 22nd of June my period came only on 23rd June and for 2 days. 2 weeks before my period I was feeling so tired daily, my weight increase and my breast look big. On my 1st day of period on 23rd June 2010, I was bleeding very heavy and have stomach cramp very badly. During my 2nd day of my period on 24th June 2010, I when and see Dr and she ask me to take the clomid 2 tablets per night for 5 days. She also scan and found one of my egg was 3mm. So she ask me to come back on my 13 days to check my egg. So I am not sure if this would work this time or not since is my 2nd cycle I am taking the clomid tablets.

Please advise me Dr as I am desperatly want to be pregnant....

I just joined this website hoping to talk to someone about my menstrual cycle. It all started 4 months ago, I had woke up to severe abdominable pain and had a sudden urge to pee, well when i got to the bathroom i found blood everywhere all down my legs all over myself. I had to take a shower. Well i put a regular sized tampon in and not even 10 minutes later in bed i was bleeding all over myself again. I ended up waiting out the pain in my abdomin and used 36 tampons in 1 1/2 days but i was getting really sick. I lived with my boyfriend at the time and he advised me to go to ER. So i did, and they did a couple different kinds of ultrasounds, they ended up finding cysts on my ovaries that had popped i guess, thats what the doctor said. I asked him if that was why i was bleeding he said he didnt know why i was bleeding, must just be my period, then he sent me home. well now eveytime i have a period i have extreme pain and still bleed so much that it makes it hard to function in daily life, i cant go to work without having to go to the bathroom every 20-30 minutes to change a tampon. I am currently going through a severly painful period right now. my right side is hard and bloated and im bleeding alot again, today a bloodclot the size of my index finger in width and length came out...i just really really really need to know if this is normal or am i over reacting?

To Tiffany81190,
   That is definitely not normal. Have you seen a doctor about maybe having fibroids? My mom had periods similar to yours and they found out she had a fibroid problem. There are ways for them to help you. I think you should definitely make your doctor see you or maybe even find a new one. My moms periods were extremely heavy, upto quarter size clots if not larger, and extremely painful. When it was that time she would always take extra clothes to work because sometimes she couldn't make it to the bathroom fast enough to change the tampon and pad! She had to use both and had to still change them a couple times an hour. It took my mom a couple doctors until one finally agreed to do an ultrasound before her period, during her period and after her period so they could figure out what was going on with her body. They finally realized she had a fibroid problem. My mom ellected to have the ablation done and now she don't get her periods or have to deal with that anymore. She is much happier :-) I don't recommend the ablation if you still want to have kids though. I'm sorry that you are going through that. I hope you are able to get the help you need so you can start feeling better.

Iv just joined this site and seen the article. I'm looking for a few answers if anyone can help me please.
I'm 26 and been trying for a baby for 18 months with my husband. I'm now 2 weeks and 3 days late on me period, iv did 3 tests and all have come up negative. (I used clear blue too) I did my last test on Friday (13th day of being late). I went to my doctor on friday after work and he sed if the tests are negative I'm not pregnant and if still not come on by the end of this week to do another. Felt like he just wasn't inerested. Not too impressed with him. I have swollen tummy and breasts, headaches and nausea, butterfly flutters every so often behind my ribs on the left hand side. If I am pregnant could leaving it too long cause any damage to the foetus?

I had a FET ( frozen embro transfer) on 9/27/10 and I go in for my Beta testing Oct 7th. We decided to do a HPT today ...just to see. B/c this time there was no trigger shot so no HCG would be in my system from the meds since there was no IVF. Long story short I see a very faint positivie line.... Does it matter how dark the line is? I know it is still early since my blood test isnt for another 4 days; so is that the reason for the light line?  Should I wait until Thursday or test again in a few days with my other test?

Very, you transferred a blast therefore 2 days ahead of a 3day transfer.  I think your faint positive line will only get darker and darker. Which brand did you use? digital?

I just want to say congratulations to those who are pregnant and those that think they are. I was reading the posts on here, and I have to say that I am relating to many of you where symptoms are concerned.
However, to those of you that are 16, 17, and the like that are trying to get pregnant, you need to put more attention towards school where you can learn English and more tactful language. Reading your posts made me want to gag. Why on Earth would you try to get pregnant at 16 or 17? Are you trying to end up on welfare? You are barely old enough to take care of yourself let alone a child. It's not sunshine and roses.

I'm wondering the same thing, Sarah_Jean

I'm 22 years old. It's highly probable that I'm pregnant, seeing as there was a bit of ejaculation inside, no protection, and it was during my ovulation period. As of today,  if I am preggerz, I would be approximately 4 weeks pregnant or as of last AF (Aunt Flo/PMS/etc,) approximately 5 weeks.

Weight gain I have had, but not enough for my breasts to grow as full, heavy, swollen, and hot as they are. The pain began in the nipples, 2 weeks before my AF was due and 1 week after the possible conception; I couldn't squeeze them due to the pain--which is a normal symptom of my AF. The pain then spread deeper into my breasts, and it's painful to squeeze them (gently, not hard, mind you). Now I feel the pain without touching them. It's not terrible pain, and it's the fact that it's a strong symptom of pregnancy that scares me more. I had this pain almost immediately, but I wasn't far from my period, either.

Then I started feeling a tightness in my pelvic area, lots of smelly white secretions and cloudy urine, and had strange mood fluctuations. The tightness in my pelvic area and my mood swings were the first reasons that I went to get a blood test (the same day I got a pap smear.) The other things happened later, as the pain also grew to intolerable levels.

Turns out I contracted an STI and two additional infections. I took the anti-bacterial meds and finished them up about a week ago. While I am starting to get that pain in my pelvic area again, I have not noticed any weird secretions or cloudy urine.

My period didn't come. As of today, I am 11 days late. I have taken four HPT and one blood, and the results were negative. The blood test was far too soon, only 4 days after having had sex. The last HPT I took was when I first woke up yesterday in the afternoon (I work rotating shift schedules.)

My total symptoms: Acid reflux, backaches, headaches, tiredness/fatigue, painful sometimes itchy breasts, pelvic cramps/pain, and mood fluctuations.

Could this be pregnancy? Or is it all just the STI/infections talking? Could it be that the STI/infections are affecting my breast pain, thus my now-heavy breasts are affecting my back pain? Could the mood swings and the late AF could be due to stress? All of it is quite possible. It's all very antagonizing. Should I get another blood test, or should I wait to see whether I get my next period? The last time I was late on my period (5 days late) was was early June because I was highly stressed then--I am not now though. Just irked as to why I can't be sure of my pregnancy or lack thereof.

*Starr*

I am going nuts here, yesterday, I decided to take a hpt becuase I have been sooo tired lately and eating cookies and cakes that I NEVER eat, and just basically feeling blaa! I took the test around 2 pm and it was positive!!! Yaa! Then this morning I took the same test (2pack) and it was negative!! Not so yaaa!!  I am confused, I thought there was no such thing as false positives, but why the negative the next am!!  I am not have fertility meds in over 7 months, my husband had a vasectomy reversal Dec 10 2010, tested in July of 2011 told it was 0 didnt work, then my GP told me that is sometimes not always true sperm can restore it is like a roller coaster, so we havent thought about having a baby in months, then this!!  I am 39 40 in December, please tell me what is going on??

Okay so Im so confused.. On 8/24/11, i had my NORMAL period. 9/21/11i started to have brownish discharge, also on 9/22/11 it was a the brownish discharge with some blood streaks, HOWEVER i took 2 Dollar Tree preg test on like 2 weeks from eachother, HOWEVER they were both NEG. then it went away until 10/8/11 i started to again have brownish discharge, from the 10/8-10/16 it went from brownish discharge to brownish/red watery, then dark brown runny discharge. then stopped on 10/16, it had NO SMELL, and i was cramping. The crazy thing is when i had my IUD removed 10/19/2010 and once my periods started to regulate, thats when i noticed that when i get ready to started my cycle i was having cramps which were more intense, and my boobs went from NEVER aching to now they ACHE about 1 week before. BUT for this month my boobs DIDN'T HURT. So i just don't know!! But if any one had experienced this before and ended up PREG, please feel free to share..... Good luck and Thanks to all who reponds!! :)

i first suspected i was pregnant from the symptoms i was having which made me test myself and i got a positive. I started bleeding around the time i was supposed to get my period but it was nothing like aperiod and it didnt feel like a period at all. the blood was bright red and sometimes dark and sometimes light but mostly heavy the first couple days. i made an appointment at the doctors and they said i wasnt pregnant and prob had a chemical pregnancy. as the weeks went on about 2 weeks after that i started noticing my gut area getting bigger and feeling extremely bloated. also my back even looks like it is swollen or something i am just gaining noticable weight also with my boobs having the veins and heaviness. i would be 5 weeks now so im thinking it could be just too early to test maybe cause i just tested myself the other night even though i should have done it in the morning and it came out negative. i still got that feeling that something is up.. and i know i gotta trust what i feel but i just dont know what to do and its frustrating and i know tge doctor wont help cause they want you to have a positive before they do any further checking other than just blood and pee. i dont know what to do

i have been experiencing some pregnancy symptoms for the past 3 months. I have had a missed period since may 25th. I have nausea but no vomiting, sore feet, full breast but no soreness, fatigue, and my abdomen is very firm. When I press down on my lower abdomen it feels like whatever it is that i am touching, it is pressing on my bladder.. like a baby. it feels the exact same way when i would touch my stomach when i was pregnant with my first child. i have taken several pregnancy test but all came back negative.I can't afford to go to the doctor because it cost to much and they won't help me. I have had some vaginal bleeding or about 2 weeks. just this morning it had become a little bit heavier. i also feel something moving inside my stomach. just like before when i was pregnant and it felt exactly the same. what should i do because i am scared because i am bleeding. but no pain.

Hi all, I'm somewhat concerned. I had unprotected sex from the 20th sep 2012 through till the 2nd of October 2012.

I had two days of light bleeding and serious cramps  & was frequenting the bathroom with feelings of a weak bladder with the urge to urinate for what didn't seem worthy of the fuss on the 24th & 25th then nothing no pain or blood ect until the 30th where I had a very short unusual period for only four days with a bloated abdomen & no cramping  (My periods are usually quiet heavy and have a tendency to hang around for the full 7 days). Bloating subsided when the supposed cycle stopped.  From the 11th october 2012, I started feeling exhausted and coffee just didn't taste right and my abdomen started to looked swollen as im usually flat like a surfboard. This stomach condition of swollen abdomen is still here as i write you now. Then from the 14th oct through till the 19th my nipples were sore. Thinking it were just a sign ovulation was coming after careful reading, I didn't worry. I was also fatigued and my skin was breaking out, i had a massive appetite, hot flushes & headaches. I then had funny cramping on the 23rd at lunch time for about an hour & then again on the 24th of October 2012 in the early hours of my waking hours. (Just the cramping though no bleeding) and only until I had eaten something. (Before all this I used to skip lunch). From there on in until now I've still got the bloated abdomen, fatigue, having hot flushes in my sleep at night which wakes me causing broken sleep, I've now got lower back pain to add to the list too and a hell of a heighten sense of smell. ( sitting on the bus home I could smell the breath of the people sitting around me and it revolted me so much I had to focus on keeping my mind preoccupied). I've had white discharge all the way through till now with the amount being greater at the beginning of what id considered my usual cycle at the time my breasts are also looking much fuller however the three tests I've taken in the last week (including yesterday morning) have all read negative & my period was due on the 28th oct 2012 it's now the 30th oct 2012. Any thoughts? Or similar stories?

Oct 30 to Nov 2 from day one to day four has been light and very tiny blood clots, at the some time one day 3 I have seen a brownish red  colour on the totilt paper. On day four I was very very light on the totlet paper, I put a new pad on at 6 am on Nov 2 to see if little to none blood goes on the pad and I will check at 4pm to see, that will be 10hours by then. This will be the lightest and the shortest period I ever had. Who know I might be prego. I will take a other hpt when it stops compitely to see, and get my doctor to do a blood test as will. If any one can help me or tell me if this has happen to them and did find out by hpt or blood test please let me know. I am lost and don't know what to do or think.

Hello, I am 20. Me and my fiancé had intercourse on November 4th which was my ovulating date. He got off inside of me, we are trying to concieve. I am now 7 days late for my period, I took a pregnancy test on nov 20th which would have been when I was 2 days late for my period, and on one nov 21st which I was 3 days late for my period. I am now 7 days late for my period. I have not been cramping at all like I usually do when it's time for my period, I can smell food from a mile away, I have a weird taste in my mouth, everything I eat juss does not please me an usually makes me sick to my stomach, the only thing I can eat that doesn't make me sick to my stomach is pop sicles and smartie candies, I'm constipated an I've been tryin to make myself go but it makes me stomach hurt really bad so I quit trying, I stay nauseated, keep headaches, and my back is constantly hurting. Could I be pregnant?

I was supposed to get my period today and they are always on time. Instead of getting my period I just started having a heavy white discharge. No odor or itching or burning. And a dull pain in my lower back. My husband and I use condoms. Mostly but every now and we use withdrawal.  Should I go in for a test or wait it out?

Hi. My husband and I are trying for a baby. I took my mirena out in dec. And had normal cycles from that point. Than my last period was in march on the 2nd and it lasted for 7 days. My period didnt show up on the 30 as scheduled so I assumed we were prego. I took all the home pregnancy test and got negative results. I went into the Drs office and still neg urine and blood results. Could I still be possibly pregnant? Is it just too early to tell because according to the charts I wont be six weeks till sat.the 13th. Please talk to me someone.

I tried the ring test and its starts with circular then changes to swinging from side to side ... However when I move it over to my husband its comes to a stop...i know that's just supposed to be for fun. I have done pregnancy tests but comes back negative ... i can also feel movement but very slight and soft movements and not the whole time(don't know if i'm imagining it) i have all the symptoms , and gaining weight as well as my breasts . i normally have heavy flow for 3 days straight when im on my periods however this month it was not the same , was little bits at a time and all in a period of 4 days , more like spotting and it was very light not like normal blood. i have one child and it was not like this with her at all , but when she was born Dr told me that i would have trouble conceiving again.my daughter is 12 already and i so badly want another but it does not seem to happen. any advise ? could i be pregnant even though the tests say negative? is it possible that only a blood test could be accurate?

I'm so tired, lack of energy.  And I started noticing  more on the symptoms and I told my friend and they were telling me that I'm pregnant so we went to get the test because i was smoking and drinking so i wanted to make sure if i am or not kus i dont want to hurt the baby if i am... when I had the test in my hands I was happy but also nervous so when I saw the results it came out faint BLUE negative line? :'( if im not why am I having ALL this symptoms huh?
