about pregnancy

Iam Helennanditharay and I need a help from you. me and my hubby are trying to conceived for about 4 months. My period is very much regular and lenghth is 27 days. Every month its 27 days(no variation). My last period was on April 21st and this month it should be May17th. but I observed a light spotting on yesterday no heavy flow. I took two home pregnancy test and two were negative. Still now, No heavy flow is observed. I don't know what is happening. Can anyone help me? Am I pregnant? then why tests were negative? Or HCG will take some time to accumulate in Urine?

I would suggest a blood test for the pregnancy hormone level.  Most of the time, the urine tests are very accurate, down to very low levels, and usually they convert to positive around or a little before the time of the missed period.  But I would still confirm with a blood test if possible.
If your period is just a little late this month, no worries, but if the tests are negative and you still have not had the heavy flow, I would suggest a repeat test in 5-7 days.
Good luck!

Hi Dr. Thank you so much for this valuable information. I will definitely repeat the test in 5-7 days. Still i have a question. If I am pregnant , then why spotting happens? Its a symbol of period or an implantation bleeding? But what I heard is the implantation bleeding will observe in 7-10 days after ovulation. But in my case its almost 15 days. then what is this spotting meant for?
