Is it Possible to Have a False-Negative Pregnancy Test Result?

False-Negative Pregnancy Tests

At Your Options Medical, we have found that when many of our patients have a negative pregnancy test result, they assume they are not pregnant. However, this is not always the case. False negative pregnancy tests do occur. Here is how it works:

A urine pregnancy test detects the hormone called hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). This is the hormone your body produces during pregnancy. When urine is being tested for the presence of this hCG hormone and a woman is pregnant, the result of the pregnancy test should read positive. However, there are a few reasons a pregnancy test can give a false test result including the following:

  • In early pregnancy, the hCG hormone levels may be too low for a pregnancy test to detect. The earliest time to test for an accurate result is 7-10 days after a missed period.
  • The best time of day to take a pregnancy test is first thing in the morning when a woman’s urine is highly concentrated. Because urine may be less concentrated later in the day, the test may not be able to detect the hCG hormone.
  • If you have had a negative pregnancy test, but are experiencing pregnancy-like symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, tiredness, loss of appetite, etc. it is always best to contact your doctor to access for causes unrelated to pregnancy.
  • There is always the possibility of human error when performing home pregnancy tests. It is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Most pregnancy tests require you to let the test set for 3-5 minutes. If the test is left beyond the recommended set time, this could produce a false test result.
  • If you had a tubal ligation (i.e. tubes tied), are experiencing pregnancy-like symptoms, and test negative on a pregnancy test, contact your medical doctor to assess for causes unrelated to pregnancy.

If you think you might be pregnant because you have missed your period, know that there are other reasons besides pregnancy. To learn more, check out our blog.

  1. So I took 2 pregnancy tests both after 14 days of when my period usually began. Both came out negative. Does that mean I’m not pregnant?

    1. Hi Cadederial, Not necessarily. As presented in the blog, there are multiple reasons why you could receive a false negative result on a pregnancy test. If you would like to speak with one of our nurses who could answer more questions for you, please call 617-419-6112. They will be happen to speak further with you.

  2. Hi! I missed my period twice, took the 1st pregnancy test after 6 weeks from my last period and it came out negative. Took another 2 PTs 2 weeks after and still negative. However, I sometimes feel nauseous and my head always hurt. Does that mean I might be pregnant? BTW my cycle is irregular. Couldnt schedule a checkup with an OB GYNE cause my area is in lockdown due to COVID 19.

    1. Hi Chris, I so apologize for the delay in our response. It is possible you might be pregnant. We could offer you free pregnancy testing and time with a nurse to ask your questions. Please call 617-419-6112 and we would be happy to serve you.

  3. I’m on nexplanon but still feel like I might be pregnant even though the four different brands of the many test all said negative. I have so many of the feelings that I had early in previous pregnancies. I don’t know how to ask without sounding crazy for a blood test or just wait it out…

    1. Hi Charlotte, I apologize for the delay in our response. It is possible you might be pregnant. We could offer you free pregnancy testing; however, we do not have blood tests. If you would like to schedule an appointment please call 617-419-6112. You could ask your doctor for a blood test simply explaining the situation.

  4. I have taken 2 home pregnancy test and both were negative. I haven’t had a cycle since March 3 and I have nausea, vomiting, my stomach is extremely bloated and cramps a lot, headaches, tender and full breast. I feel crazy is there any way I am not pregnant or a reason that I am testing negative if I am pregnant? My cramps have been so bad that I have went to ER and they tested me as well and urine test was negative. I really need to know if I am because my son was born stillborn and 2 years later I was diagnosed with MTHFR with my daughter and I know it is important to start treatment early in pregnancy.

    1. Hi Stacy, I apologize for the delay in our response. You may be pregnant and testing negative on urine tests, some women have to take blood tests in order to receive an accurate result. If you think you might be pregnant and need a blood test, you could contact your doctor and request a blood test.

  5. I’ve had my IUD removed maybe 2 weeks ago now. This week alone I’ve been waking up nauseous and losing my appetite while eating and I’ve taken many test and all have come back negative but my body just doesn’t feel right? Should I contact my doctor?

    1. Hi Gabrielle, If you have any concerns after having an IUD removed it would be good to contact the doctor who prescribed the IUD so you can ask questions and they can address your concerns.

    1. Hi Sis, It is possible to receive a false negative result on a pregnancy test. It may be too early to test or there could be something else going on. If you would like to schedule an appointment for free pregnancy testing, please call 617-419-6112.

  7. I didnt have period since my last pregnancy im a bit nauseous took taste and was negative can it still be im pregnant

  8. I Have been nauseous for over a week now my period isnt for another 4 days. I thought that if I am feeling nauseous already then I could test positive, however, I’ve taken 4 tests and 1digital, I thought I seen a line on the last 2 tests but they are hardly noticeable and everyone says they dont see the line, I’m sure it’s part of an evaporation line at this point.

    1. Hi Sam, we typically recommend taking a pregnancy test a few days after you are due to begin your period. If you think you might be pregnant, we can offer you medical-grade pregnancy testing, possible ultrasound if medical criteria is met (positive pregnancy test, no current bleeding, etc.), and pregnancy options counseling. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call 617-419-6112 and we will be happy to help and answer your questions.

  9. Hi, I’m Kayley. I haven’t had my period in over a month. Beginning last weekend I was nauseous and began throwing up. It’s stopped for a day or so and came back yesterday. I’ve been having headaches, peeing constantly, and I’m always tired no matter how much sleep I get. I went to the doctor Saturday and they did a urine test but it came back negative. When my mom was pregnant with me and my two brothers her urine tests never showed up positive so she always had to get blood tests to make sure she was and I’m just confused on what to do and if I could be pregnant.

    1. Hi Kayley, I am so sorry to hear you have not been feeling well. If you think you might be pregnant and are experiencing some symptoms, we could offer you free pregnancy testing. Please know though we offer medical quality pregnancy tests, they are urine tests only. If you would like to make an appointment, please call 617-419-6112. If you would like to get a blood test done, you can ask your doctor for this test.

  10. Am I the only one here who tested positive but turns out it was just false pregnancy, rather than the pregnancy test being false? This might be ridiculous, but could you tell and explain to me anyway on what happened in my very different case from most comments?

    1. Hi Juanita, How can I help you today? If you would like to have a private conversation offline, please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.Thank you!

  11. I had irregular bleeding, not like my period for 2.5 days, and spotting for 2 days. All pregnancy symptoms but my blood test came out negative. My symptoms are getting worse, and the bleeding has stopped but still have cramps. Is it possible to be pregnant with the hook effect? We inseminated June 21st and the 24th.

    1. Hi Crystal! Thank you for your comment. It is possible that you could be pregnant. We can offer you free pregnancy testing and possible ultrasound if medical criteria is met. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call 617-419-6112. However, since you are having symptoms and already received a negative blood test, I would speak with your doctor directly.

  12. I been experiencing symptoms for a week now . Cramping and lower back pain, feel like I have to throw up and breasts sore. I’m have 10 days until my period expected to arrive and I took pregnancy test but all shows negative. I’m also peeing and extremely tired. My stomach feels bloated and I’m experiencing tight muscle pain one one side of abdomen.

  13. Hey pls help me..after 9-10 days of my due date I tested but result was negative.. I am feeling cramps in stomach. My cycle is of 30-34 days.. last month I got my period on 8 June and this month I took test on 17 July and result negative. It means I am not pregnant???

    1. Hi Garrrrrriya, It is possible that you might be pregnant and the negative test result was a false negative. The only way to be sure would be to receive blood work as every so often someone could have a negative test, but be pregnant. It could also be possible that you simply took the test too early for the test to detect pregnancy. If you would like to schedule an appointment, we offer pregnancy testing at no cost to you and insurance is not required. Please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022. If you are unsure about your symptoms, it is always good to consult your doctor.

  14. Hi, so my period is 2 weeks late.. I’ve taken 2 test and they came out negative at first the first one said negative but I looked at it a couple days later to show my husband and it looked positive. The second one I took was negative.. I’ve been feeling nauseous lately with discomfort in my stomach and cramping.my breast feel full but not tender. And sometimes they hurt as well as the nipple area on occasions..I’ve lost my appetite throughout the day, and when I do eat I always still feel like I’m hungry.. I’ve been having crazy mood swings… could I be pregnant or is this something else? I be never missed a cycle. And the longes my period has been late is at lest 5 days or less.

    1. Hi Chez,
      Yes, absolutely someone can have a pregnancy test that states is negative but in fact could be positive. Sometimes it does take a couple of weeks though for the hormone to be enough in the urine to show positive. If your urine tests appear inconclusive, you could call your doctor for blood work to test for possible pregnancy. If you receive a positive result from your doctor and would like to schedule a free ultrasound with us, no insurance required, please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.

  15. Hello..
    Please my period is 5 days late and all the necessary test is negative. Can I still be pregnant?

    1. Hi Sharon,
      Thanks for your question. We get asked that a lot. There is no quick easy answer but I will try. The pregnancy test you took could be an inaccurate test. Have you tried another one? You could make an appointment at one of our Centers for a “lab quality test” free of charge by calling 617-419-6112 or texting 508-251-9022. Make sure you try to do the pregnancy test early in the morning when your urine is more concentrated and not diluted by perhaps drinking a ton of water throughout the day. You could be running late for your period – that happens in women sometimes so that in fact the accuracy of the test is correct and you will get your period soon. There are numerous issues that cause women to miss their periods (i.e. extreme diets, stress, and more). Every so often a woman might be pregnant but the hormone (human chorionic gonadotrophin – HCG) does not show in urine but that a blood test would be more definitive.

  16. Hi so my cycle is currently 50 days long… I obviously missed my period & having symptoms galore… headaches, nausea ALL DAY, super tired, feeling pretty bloated everyday.. along with ALOT of clear stretchy discharge… I should be 7 weeks today but still getting negative results. I’ve got an OB appointment in 2 days, but I just want to make sure I’m not crazy?? What could this be?

    1. Hi Brittany,
      No, you are not crazy! Women’s bodies can all be very different. Sometimes a woman has a negative urine pregnancy test and is indeed pregnant. Sometimes (fairly rarely) women have a period through some of the pregnancy. Sometimes a woman could have a positive test early on in pregnancy and could have had a miscarriage but some of the pregnancy hormone (human chorionic Gonadotrophin HCG) is still in their urine. We can offer free, no insurance needed pregnancy testing. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022. Of course, if you have concerning symptoms it is always good to contact your personal doctor.

    2. Hi Brittany, Sorry that I am just getting back to you at this time. By now you should have had the OB appointment. Did he/she do a blood pregnancy test? Every so often a urine test does show negative but the blood test would show positive. Keep us posted with what the OB person said.

  17. Going crazy here. I’m 38, have had 3 kids. My last period was June 23. My cycles are usually 30 days and regular. This month I have not gotten a period. It’s now the 29 of July. I feel pregnant. All of the same symptoms and feelings I had with my first 3. Yet, my pregnancy tests have all been negative. I’ve never missed a period before in my life unless I was pregnant so this is concerning to me.

    1. Hi Katie, I apologize for getting back to you so late after your inquiry. Please don’t “go crazy”. With what you have said I can see how you would be concerned. Every so often urine pregnancy tests do show negative. Hopefully the ones you are using are of a good quality. A Health Care Center (MD, NP) could do a blood pregnancy test. Please keep us posted if we can do a “lab quality test” and if you have a positive blood test result we are able to do an Ultrasound to confirm how far along you are and the viability of your pregnancy. Keep us posted!

  18. So I took a test in the morning and I saw an extremely faint line, took one later said I was negative. Took another test a day later early and said I was… then wait 2 days took it more in the afternoon but came back negative.. is it just to early to detect? I’m feeling tired, and nauseas and have had headaches for couple days on and off… I have another test I can take should I wait longer or just take it in the morning? I did set up an appointment with my dr, but they don’t want me to come in until the end of August. Feeling extremely confused.

    1. Hi Haley,
      Thanks for your question. Yes, it can get kind of confusing. Do you know what the last day of your period was? Also, early morning urine is the best to test as that is when your urine is more concentrated. So much depends on what you are thinking in terms of the pregnancy. Sounds like your doctor is not concerned and that is why they want you to wait until the end of August. If you are close to one of our Centers (Fall River, Revere or Sturbridge Massachusetts), you can come in and we will do a “lab quality” pregnancy test. If positive and medical criteria is met, we will offer an Ultrasound. Keep in touch and let us know what you decide.

  19. Hi,
    My names Elizabeth. So I haven’t gotten my period since last July. They’re irregular but it’s bothering me a lot with how late it is. I have EVERY pregnancy symptom. My stomach is rock hard at the top. Stretch marks are dark and surrounding my belly but the test says negative… but my parents even said they think I am.

    1. Hi Elizabeth,
      If no period since July 2019- that is quite awhile ago or are you meaning this July that just passed, July 2020? If you want to come to one of our Centers, we can do a pregnancy test and if positive, offer an Ultrasound if medical criteria is met and that will determine how far along you are. To schedule an appointment, please call 617-419-6112. We have Centers in Fall River, Sturbridge, and Revere. If you have not confirmed your pregnancy, that does sound like it is an important step to take.

  20. Hey! Im kinda confused.. i haven’t had a period in 3 months, but every month i have spotted lightly for like 3 days, I have almost every pregnancy symptom such as nausea, headache, bloating, some tenderness on my nipples, fatigue, some cramps, frequent peeing, craving a lot of chocolate, mood swings and some back pain. I even feel some movements like some waves or light pounds and flutters here and there but very light. But all my pee tests have been negative! 🤦🏻‍♀️

    1. Hi Marcy,
      I can understand how you would be confused. Yes, every so often a woman can be pregnant with a negative urine test. When that happens the woman usually goes to a her health care provider for a blood test. That will more accurately determine status. I wish you well in figuring this out. If you want us to do a urine test we we can and if positive an ultrasound may be offered if medical criteria is met. If you go to the health care provider and have blood work and it is positive and you want an Ultrasound you can set up an appointment with us and bring the blood work confirmation with you. Hope this answers your question.

  21. Hello, my name is Sarah. I haven’t gotten my period in 11 days and I took two at home pregnancy test both Clear blue and they came out negative. I was suppose to get my period on the 23rd of July, should I take a blood test justo to make sure I am not pregnant?

    1. Hi Sarah
      In response to your question regarding “Should you get a blood test if you have a negative urine test”. I do believe that if you are concerned about being pregnant and continue to not get your period, I think it would be a good idea to have a blood test done by your MD, NP or Health Care Center. One of our Centers (Revere, Fall River or Sturbridge) could do a lab quality urine pregnancy test if you want. Every so often a woman can have a negative urine test, but blood work shows to be positive. In that case if you go to your health care provider and have blood work and it is positive you may come to us for an Ultrasound. (Just do bring the proof of pregnancy with you from the blood work).
      Hope this helps

  22. Hello My Name is Ludy
    Im about 16 days past due and i took 3 pregnancy test and all 3 came back negative i have all types of symptoms at firsf started cramping mood swings tender breasts and nauseous now i feel my breast are fuller mild cramping and very bloated could it be possible that in going thru a chemical pregnancy i recently went thru one about 6 months ago

    1. Hi Ludy, Yes that is possible. My understanding though of a chemical pregnancy is more that you would have had a positive test and then some bleeding to tell you the early pregnancy is ending. Very often women could be pregnant but never realize it as they have a period maybe a bit heavier than usual. It is possible to be pregnant and have a negative urine test. To be sure it is sometimes necessary, if you feel you are pregnant and have no bleeding, to have a blood test done. That would show for sure whether or not you have the pregnancy hormones in your system. Hope this was helpful. Keep us posted.

  23. So i got my period last month but it only came on for two days then no peruod for the rest of the month past few weeks i havent been feeling good took a test but it came out negative now I’m bleeding really heavy and cramping my head is pounding sometimes i feel dizzy and like I’m going to pass out is it possible i could be pregnant despite bleeding and the negative pregnancy test

    1. Hi Queen,
      Well if you are bleeding heavily and feel so sick I think I would try to seek out medical care through your Primary Care Physician (PCP). If the pregnancy tests are negative and you are bleeding heavily, I would guess you are not pregnant at this point. It might be worth it to try to see your PCP, NP or a clinic where they could do some testing (blood testing would rule out pregnancy) and then you would be sure.
      Please keep us posted with what happens and if you are feeling like you are going to pass out, I would have someone try to get you in for an evaluation.

  24. Hello, I took one pregnancy test on August 12 2020 and it came out negative. And my last day of period started July 8th I am currently 12 days late on my period. I have been having some cramps on and off and whitish discharge is there a possibility I’m pregnant please i need answers and help!

    1. Hi Jacquelyn,
      I received your question about being pregnant with a negative pregnancy test. Every so often a urine pregnancy test can be a false negative. That happens for lots of reasons. I would suggest that if you could have a blood pregnancy test (your md, np, clinic) that would determine your pregnancy status. If it is positive and you bring that documentation, we can offer you an ultrasound to confirm how far along you are. Another option would be to come to one of our Centers and if a “lab quality urine test” is positive, we can do the Ultrasound.
      Please keep us posted.

  25. Hi, I’ve had three faint positive tests on two different brands now a negative on another test. What does that mean I’m nearly three weeks late to my period and I’ve not bleed but I’ve been having a few pregnancy symptoms like nauseous, funny taste in my mouth, dizziness my boobs seem fuller and nipples look different..
    Thank you

    1. Dear Han, A faint positive test, usually means a positive test. Where you are stating that you feel like you are having pregnancy symptoms and no period, I would either have a “lab quality test” (we can do that at Your Options Medical” or go to your health care provider (MD, NP, or outpt. clinic) for a blood test. A blood test would confirm a positive pregnancy test. Every so often the urine pregnancy test are not always accurate especially depending upon the brand. If you have a positive blood test bring the results and we can do an Ultrasound to determine how far along you are. Or we can do a urine test using our “lab quality tests” and if positive also do an ultrasound.

  26. My last actual period was July 5th. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex the weekend of July 17-20… on the 29th I started spotting and continued lightly spotting for 2 days, and then continued to have a drop or two max for 2 days after that. My periods are usually a normal flow that last 3 days every month. I recently developed Thrush, which is very strange as all of my pregnancy tests are negative and that’s a strange thing for a 26 year old woman to come down with. I was supposed to start my period on the 2nd, but it never came besides the weird days of spotting. I have taken many at home tests because I haven’t been feeling well, constant headaches, backaches, cramping, sensitive veiny breasts, and now the thrush. The doctors even did a quantitive blood test on 10th and it was negative. Could I have miscarried, or should I be concerned that I could still be pregnant? Not feeling well and not sure of what is going on and my doctors are stumped as well.

    1. Hi Kendall,
      Yes, all of that does sound somewhat strange especially the negative blood test. I would have thought that if you had miscarried there might have still remained a few pregnancy hormones (Hcg) in your system which would have shown up on blood test. I would return to the doctor for another blood test just to totally rule out pregnancy. Those hormones increase with pregnancy and the blood test is the most accurate. Also the treatment for the thrush is important. I am glad you are under Doctor’s care to get to try to get to the bottom of what is going on with you.

  27. Hey guys I have had 3 positive and 3 negative test what can this mean I’m so confused can anyone help me out!?

    1. Hi Jasmine,
      Yes, that would be pretty confusing. 6 pregnancy tests !!(that’s a lot of money😒) I am curious if the positive tests were first and then the 3 negative ones and how much time frame in between the tests ??? (Hrs, days, weeks ??) All that is important information. At this point perhaps go to a MD/NP/ health clinic and see if they will do a blood pregnancy test. That should confirm either positive or negative. We are also available to do “lab quality pregnancy tests” if you choose to come to one of our Centers.

  28. Hi!
    I’m very regular and my cycle is 28 days. I’ve been on Loestrin for 8 months. I’ve never had an issue with irregularities. I’ve never missed a period. I have mistakenly missed doses and have never had any issue. My fiancé and I had sex 7/26 (I was on the final sugar pill for that week)… then I missed 2 doses the following day(s). I doubled up on 8/6. I’ve taken them consistently since then. In the last few weeks I’ve experienced: urinating frequently (which is not normal for me, so I had a UA & Culture=Both negative), bloating, random nausea (no vomiting), frequent headaches, back pain, hot flashes, mild sore throat, fatigue, very mild cramping. I had the smallest, faint light pink spotting last week when I wiped once (again not normal for me). I was due to start my period this Sunday 8/16. It hasn’t come yet. I’ve had a very small amount transparent clear goo like brown when I wiped once a day so far on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and today. Nothing like my usual period. I took a clear blue and first response test on Tuesday 8/18 morning. Both negative. Took another clear blue test this morning- negative. Is there ANY way I am pregnant even with those 3 tests being negative starting 2 days after I was expecting my period to start? Is it unlikely? I know my body and something isn’t right.

    1. Hi Marissa,
      I am getting back to you regarding your questions about a false negative pregnancy test. Well, I am hoping by now you did get your period. You said you were due for it on 8/16. To try to answer your questions: yes, it is possible to have a negative urine pregnancy test and still be pregnant. A blood urine test would be the best advise at this point. It is too bad that when they did the Urinalysis that they did not also do a quick pregnancy test. All that said- you sound like you have lots of symptoms (sore throat/ hot flashes) You could have a couple things going on- a virus/ infection and of course always a possibility of pregnancy along with other issues.
      If you have not gotten your period at this point, and urine pregnancy tests remain negative, I would suggest you go to your PCP, NP or health clinic for a blood pregnancy test. If it is positive and you would like an Ultrasound to determine how far along you are and viability, we will be able to do that. (Just bring your proof of pregnancy from that blood test). If you do another home urine test and it is positive, you can also come to one of our Centers and we will again do the pregnancy test and then if positive, do an ultrasound.
      Please keep us posted as to what is going on with you.

  29. Hello I had my period July 30 but all I did was spot and my periods are never irregular..After that I had cramps for a couple of days then one day I had to constantly pee..Then I would feel twinges in my lower left part of my stomach..Then a few days later my nipples starting getting sore..Then out of nowhere I get these horrible hunger pains..Plus I get dizzy and now I notice like flutters in my stomach…I have taken pregnancy tests but they say negative…Could they possibly be wrong or is it the start of menopause.

    1. Hi Marlena,
      In answer to your question, “If you could have a negative urine test and still be pregnant” the answer is yes. Every so often that does happen. I would suggest that if you do not get your period (a regular one and not just a little spotting) that you go to your PCP, NP or health clinic and ask for a blood pregnancy test. If that shows positive(usually they like to do a couple of them to see the increase in the hormone level) then you would know for sure. If you would like an Ultrasound after having a positive blood test or a positive urine test, we are able to do that. Please call one of our Centers to set up an appointment.

  30. I had light bleeding for three days the day I expect to see my period. I took a test and it came back negative but am expecting nausea, head aches, tiredness and mood swings. Any chance I could be pregnant?

    1. Hi Rhea
      The fact that you are experiencing nausea, headaches, tiredness, mood swings and a lighter than usual period does indicate something is going on with you !!
      Sometimes a urine test does not pick up the pregnancy hormone and in fact you could be pregnant. (I’m not saying you are !!) A blood pregnancy test would be the most accurate, especially if these symptoms continue. Your PCP, NP or health clinic can do the blood pregnancy test. If it turns out to be positive and you want an Ultrasound, you can call one of our Centers (bring the result of the blood test) and we can do an Ultrasound to see how far along you are and viability of the pregnancy.

  31. Hi my name is Jenny I’ve been missing my period for 2 months now and I took 2 pregnancy tests and it came out negative. I’ve been feeling nausea and tired. Every day I feel like I wanted to throw up but I couldn’t. I don’t know if I’m pregnant or not. Please help me out!

    1. Hi Jenny,
      I can’t say for sure that you are pregnant or not but perhaps with your symptoms and that you have not had a period in two months I would suspect it. Sometimes the urine pregnancy test does not, for some reason, pick up the Hcg hormone. I would suggest you go to your PCP,NP or health clinic for a blood pregnancy test. That would most definitely confirm the pregnancy. Sometimes they will do more than one to show the increase in the hormone. If that test is positive and you would like an Ultrasound, we could do that. Just bring the proof of the blood pregnancy test with you. The Ultrasound would determine such things as how far along you, the viability of the pregnancy. (Heart beat) and if more than one !!! All important information.

  32. Hi…
    I had an intercourse16days to my period…during does days I was feeling discomfort in my lower abdomen… Any slight pressure on my lower belly hurts…and I’ve been having weakness and I sleep most of the time…the point is,I have seen my period for less than the 6days which is not normal…and the pt strip says negative… Do you think I’m pregnant?

    1. Hi Merliet,
      Of course, anything is possible. Yes, sometimes you could be pregnant with a negative urine PT. With the symptoms you are experiencing pressure, weakness etc. I would feel better if you tried to see your PCP, NP or health clinic. They would also be able to do a blood PT which would be a more definitive if you are pregnant or not.

  33. Is it possible to get pregnant after having your period ? i had my period 2 weeks ago i usually have bad cramps on the first day of my period but the last time i didnt and all of a sudden i felt cramps on the 4th day !! i feel like im pregnant because i feel nausea without vomiting dont eat much as usual ,dizzy sometimes , and tired everytime i took a test and it came out negative but i have pregnancy symptoms

    1. Hi Selena,
      Yes, sometimes a urine pregnancy test is not always the most accurate. Is it possible that the period you described was not really a period but more something called “implantation bleeding”. From your description, I am not sure. If concerned regarding being pregnant I would try to see your PCP, NP or Health Center for a blood pregnancy test. This will for sure detect the pregnancy hormones, especially where you say you think you are having pregnancy symptoms. If you have this blood test and it is positive, we are more than happy to do an ultrasound to determine how far along you are, number, viability and if the pregnancy is in your uterus. (Rare that an ectopic happens, but it does every so often.

  34. Hey , my period has always been irregular it will come1-3 days late once it came 14! Longest it didn’t come and recently I had unprotected sex July 4& 21 and my period was suppose to be here the 31 of July and hasn’t came it is now 29 days late and I’ve took 5 test and all negative , I seen a very faint line on one but I just don’t know what to do

    1. Hi Loop,
      Just received your question. Yes, it is possible to have a negative urine pregnancy test and still be pregnant. I would say that if you did see a faint line that is an indication of a positive test. I would suggest that you try to go to your PCP, NP or health center for a blood pregnancy test. That would be more accurate. If , in fact, you are pregnant from the unprotected sex on July 4th, you would be about 10 weeks 2 days. We have Centers in Revere, Fall River and Sturbridge that would do a lab quality urine pregnancy test and if positive, offer you an Ultrasound. If you have a blood pregnancy test and it is, in fact positive, you could bring those results to one of our Centers and again we would do the Ultrasound. This would help to determine for sure how far along you are, the viability of the baby at that point, number of babies, and if the pregnancy is in your uterus and not an ectopic pregnancy.

  35. Hi I’m Julia. I never ever miss a period. I’m always on time give it take a day or two. My last cycle was July 23rd, 2020. It is not September 2,2020 I’ve tested a couple times all day negative. I will have period like cramping and feel like my period is coming. And it doesn’t. The cramps come and go. I also felt twinges or stinging in my nipples today. What in the world is going on ?!

    1. Hi Julia,
      Yes, I can see how you could be concerned as you have never missed a period. To answer your question, yes, it can happen that the urine test shows negative, but that you could be pregnant. A suggestion I would make is that instead of doing pregnancy tests “couple times all day”, I would do a test using the first urine when you wake up. It is the most concentrated. Another suggestion I would make is that If you have a PCP, NP or health center you could go and have a blood pregnancy test, that would be the most accurate way to determine the pregnancy hormones for you at this point. Sometimes crampy feelings do occur with pregnancy and different feelings in the breast (or it could be that your period is just really late this month due to other reasons ( i.e. stress, diet). If you either get a positive urine test or a positive blood test and you would like an Ultrasound to determine how far along you are and other information (viability, is pregnancy in your uterus, number) that is something we would be happy to provide.

  36. Hi I have been exhausted and cramping I can’t tell if I’m pregnant or just about to start my period I took a pregnancy test but it was negative and it’s been a bit since I had sex

    1. Hi Jessica,
      It could be that you are late for your period. Many things affect whether or not we get our period on time. If you are concerned about being pregnant and the urine test is negative, perhaps have your PCP , NP or health clinic do a blood pregnancy test to measure pregnancy hormones. You said “it has been a bit since I had sex”, does that mean weeks/months? Have you missed periods before? Just some questions to be able to better answer your question.

  37. Hello, my period has always been irregular and sometimes I even miss a month. However, recently I haven’t had my period in two months, but I experience what feels like period cramps for over two weeks. I had intercourse 12 days before my last period, but all four of my pregnancy test came out negative and have no other symptoms. I don’t know exactly what’s going on.

    1. Hi Maria,
      It’s hard to know what is going on with you, as you say “your periods have always been irregular and you miss a month”.
      Sometimes a urine pregnancy test does not detect the pregnancy hormones. My suggestion would be to do a test with your first urine in the morning as it is more concentrated. If that is still negative , I would suggest that you try to have a blood pregnancy test (at your PCP, NP, health center) and that would for sure detect pregnancy hormones.
      If either of those are positive and you would like an Ultrasound to determine how far along you are (as well as some other indicators of the pregnancy) we are able to do that.

  38. i missed my period so i took a test and it came out negative but then i got 2-3 days of light bleeding which was weird so i took another and it was positive, a week later just to make sure i was pregnant i took 3 tests and they all came out negative, why would one be positive and these last 3 all be negative?

    1. Hi Lexa,
      That all does sound quite confusing. It is possible that it was a false positive test : or you could have had a miscarriage – very common and that is why it showed positive and then a week later negative: or the urine tests that are now showing negative are not picking up the hormone which can also happen. Very hard to know Lexa what is going on- but yes, it is possible to have negative urine tests and be pregnant and every so often there can be a false positive test. Pregnancy blood work is the most accurate at your PCP, NP or health center. Best time to do that is around 10 days after you miss your period.

  39. Having all pregnancy symptoms which come and go.Done 2 urine tests,ultrasound showing dark shade,blood test came negative.My period didn’t show I only have spotting days before my period which was to be on the 25/08/2020.Dont know what to do now.My doc said I must wait and look for my September periods.zCan I have your advice please

    1. HI Nelly,
      So, your doctor is telling you to wait for your September period it sounds. The blood work and ultrasound I take it were negative for pregnancy. What was the date of your last period? Was it the 8/25 when you had the spotting prior to it or are you feeling that the last period was in July? I would think that if your last true period was the July one that the ultrasound and blood work that the doctor did would have showed some signs of pregnancy. That might be why he wants you to wait until your September period. When did you have the doctor visit? Also, were the urine tests negative? If you do have a positive urine test or have blood work that says it is positive and you want an ultrasoubd to confirm some things, we can do that. Let us know.

    1. Hi Lessa
      It seems like you have done many pregnancy tests and they are all negative. To answer your question, yes it is possible to be pregnant and have a negative urine pregnancy test. Would definitely try to test with the first morning urine as it is more concentrated. At this point, though, if you are truly concerned and feeling like you are pregnant (your symptoms that you mentioned) I would suggest you try to go and have a blood test for pregnancy (your PCP, NP or Health Center).

  41. Hello, I have PCOS (diagnosed in 2017) and have very irregular periods (bleeding anywhere from 8-21+ days). I had my last irregular cycle back in June and then a two day break (after taking some fertility supplements for about 2 weeks during the long cycle) and had a 2 day break before my next period. I then had normal bleeding of 7 days. I amazingly ovulated and my husband and I had unprotected sex. I tested twice in 2 week increments (end of July and beginning of August) with negative results. I’ve had a lot of breast tenderness/swelling and even some severe leg cramping (so bad it woke me up multiple times in the night), decreased appetite and lots of fatigue. The leg cramping occurred during the time of the negative test results (and I didn’t even know it could be a symptom). I’ve dealt with a lot of negative results of the last 3 years and am reluctant to test again. Next week puts me 12 weeks from the start of my last period and also the longest I’ve gone without a cycle even with my PCOS. Just looking for some help before I go down the google rabbit hole. Thank you 😊

    1. Hi Esther,
      Yes, it must be very frustrating and probably not a great idea to “go down the google rabbit hole” !. Is it possible that you could have a blood pregnancy test from the practitioner that gave you the fertility supplements? Yes, every so often, you could have a negative urine test and still be pregnant. If you do another urine test, try to do it first thing in the morning as your urine is more concentrated. If you still believe you are pregnant, I would suggest having the blood pregnancy test. Please keep us posted.

  42. Hi, I went to the hospital and they did a blood test and it tested negative but I feel weird like I am pregnant.. I’ve been having headaches and loss of appetite and my bf is always feeling weird. But my period is suppose to come in 2 days but I don’t feel any symptoms. Is it possible that I am still pregnant even if the blood test says negative?!

    1. Hi Precious,
      Usually a blood test is accurate for pregnancy unless it is done too early. At what point were you when you had the blood test ? The blood test (testing for the hCG level) is best if taken after 10 days after you miss your menstrual period. (Can detect as early as 6-8 days after ovulation- but as I said best if taken after you have missed your period).
      Will be interesting if you get your period – you mentioned you were due for it in a couple of days. If not- perhaps wait as I said above and have another blood test.

    1. Hi Vicky,
      Yes, I would wait and if you do not get your period you could take another urine pregnancy test (first thing in the morning when your urine is most concentrated). If this is negative and you are concerned regarding pregnancy you could have a blood pregnancy test either by your PCP, NP or Health Center. That test is best if you can wait till at least 10 days after your missed period.

Im not one to miss my period I am regular with my period. My dr did a urine test which came out negative, but when I wiped that day there was light pink on toilet paper. The light pink on toilet paper continued that day and was gone the following day. Could that have been implantation? I get nauseated, fatigue, and headaches. Took another test 2 test this morning one had a faint line and the digital one said not pregnant.

    1. Hi Maria,
      If you are getting a faint line on a pregnancy test, that is a positive test. Yes, sounds like you have done a little research re: implantation bleeding. Do you have a way to go to one of our Centers, (Fall River, Revere or Sturbridge) for a lab quality pregnancy test? If that is positive and you would like an US that will be done. If you go to a doctor, (your PCP, NP or Health Center) I would ask for a blood pregnancy test. That would be more accurate at this point for detecting pregnancy especially if July 27th was your last period. If that is positive and you would like an Ultrasound just bring the proof of pregnancy from the health care provider, and we can do the ultrasound if that is what you would like.

    1. Hi Andrea,
      Oh dear, that is not great that you passed out at work. If they did a urine test at the hospital or a blood test and you were too early, both of those might have come back negative. Now that you have a positive test at home and if you would like an Ultrasound to determine how far along you are (it would determine if you were, in fact, pregnant around that July 14th time) we could do that Ultrasound. We would do a lab quality pregnancy urine test and if that is positive, offer you an ultrasound.

    1. Hi Alan,
      Every so often the urine tests do not show a positive result. I would suggest that if your girlfriend has not had her period for three months that she go to her PCP, NP or Health Center and see if they will do a blood pregnancy test. At this point that would be the most accurate. Every so often changes in diet, stress, extreme exercise, ect. can cause someone not to have their period and the person is not pregnant. Probably best she gets that checked out.

    1. Hi Ruth,
      Yes, every so often you could be pregnant and the urine tests do not show it. One suggestion is to do the test the first thing in the morning (1st urine is more concentrated and might show it). With the symptoms you are describing, I would suggest trying to have a blood pregnancy test for the hCG hormone at either your PCP,NP or health Center . If you are at least about 10 days after your missed period it is pretty accurate to test for pregnancy.

  49. Last few months .my period had been acting more off than im used too.i thought maybe because i was turning 30 .i hear it changes with age. One month it came very very late but it was so light . and ive always had a heavy period with or without pain..and the next momth it arrived on the right week but it was very very very light again much more lighter than the last time. So since aug 17 i have had on and off bleeding. Cramps started later in the end of month. .it stop for a few days but it restarted and ive been seeing and having spotting and cramps since then… I saw yesterday and still today. And im cramping but its not bad. And its at the bottom of my stomach.more like right at the top of my pelvic.pain like my period.mild i dont need painpills for it. Bleeding never gets on my clothes .its never enough for that. And ive seen stretchy mucus like discharge.im confused. I finally decided to get myself a primary doctor.i go next week.but any advice as to what might be happening to me

    1. Hi Liiv,
      I am glad that you were able to get a Primary care doctor for your questions and concerns. He/she might be helpful to figure out why the change in your periods. Is there a chance you could be pregnant ? You did not mention that. If there is a chance of pregnancy perhaps you could have a pregnancy test (urine or blood) to rule out pregnancy. If it is determined you are pregnant and want to bring a Proof of pregnancy from your medical provider, we could do an Ultrasound to determine how far along you are.

  50. Hi! I was on Nexplanon for 5 years. I got it taken out on August 18th, 2020. My husband and I would like to start trying on October. My insurance cycled over in September, do there were a few reasons to get it out. I wasn’t on any contraceptive and we had unprotected sex on August 22nd and 23rd. Then, I started the Lolo pill from August 25th-30th. I was very nauseated so I stopped. We have had unprotected sex about once a week since then. It is now September 12th, and I have had cramping for a couple days weeks, VERY sore breasts when I was on Lolo but just my nipples are sore now. I am coming home ready for bed at 6pm everyday. I have a lot of discharge but no menstruation, yet. I have had three negative tests but I know it’s been too early. When should I take my next pregnancy test?

    1. Hi Rita,
      I would give it a couple weeks before taking another pregnancy test. Your body has gone through a lot with the different hormones (Nexplanon and the LoLo pills). I would also take the urine test for pregnancy the first thing in the morning when you wake up as that is when your urine is the most concentrated. If it is positive and you would like an ultrasound, we are able to do that. Please let us know.

  51. Hi my last period was July 28th. I was on birth control but missed a couple days middle of August. Took a test Sunday and it came back positive. Took two more and a blood test Wednesday and all came back negative. I have had almost constant nausea, headaches, exhaustion, trouble sleeping, heightened smells, food aversion, plus a need for foods I don’t normally like. I’m worried I’m pregnant but that it stopped progressing. I’ve tried a couple places who won’t give me an ultrasound without a positive test again. I keep being told to just wait a couple weeks and see what happens. I’m almost positive I’m pregnant. Whether I miscarry or not will show in a matter of time. I guess I just want to know I wasn’t crazy to believe that first test since I’ve had all the symptoms too

    1. Hi Anna,
      Well it is a little confusing why the first test on Sunday was positive and then on Wednesday two urine tests and a blood test were negative. You would be very early if I am looking at your dates correctly. If your last period was end of July and you probably conceived mid-August you would today be about 6 w 4 or 5 days.. I know the blood test is a little more accurate a little further along you are. So, they are probably correct in telling you to wait it out a couple of weeks. Yes, most places (including us) will only do the Ultrasound if you have a positive urine test. If you have a positive test with us or bring documentation that you have a positive blood test from a health care provider we can offer an ultrasound. And of course, before any decisions are made you should know for sure that you are pregnant as well as all the other things the ultrasound shows (is the pregnancy in your uterus, how many, date the age of the pregnancy and the viability -is there a heartbeat). Keep us posted.

  52. Hello,
    Last week I had an ultrasound done for other medical reasons and the tech asked me if I had a positive pregnancy test. I said no and asked why? He explained that he seen an early gestational sac and I was in total shock because 6 yrs ago I had a tubal ligation. I came straight home and took a test and it came back negitive. Few days later I took 2 more the same thing,today I took 3 and all were negitive also. I go in tomorrow for a blood test but im just wondering why all the test are giving me a negitive reading if a gestational sac was seen? I’m due any day for my cycle.

    1. Hi Ash,
      Well that is interesting. I am hoping that the tech did not see a small cyst or something that was other than a gestational sac and has you in such a state of shock. I am glad you are having a blood test to determine pregnancy perhaps better than the urine test. Have you been having your period and also any symptoms of pregnancy (i.e. nausea/vomiting, swollen or tender breasts, etc.)? It is a possibility that someone who had a tubal ligation could become pregnant – my understanding is if the tubes were burned or tied can make a difference. Rare but I have heard of it. By now you should have had the blood test. Keep us posted.

  53. Hello,
    I had an iud removal aug 5th. I have always had a regular period with 28 days in between. I know things can get kind of wonky after a removal but I’m 10 days late. I took a urine test on the 12th and it was negative. I also took one when I was 4 days late and that was negative. I’m not sure when or even if I ovulated this month but I can say I have a ridiculously healthy sex life. I have no appetite, I’m nauseous, sensitive nose, with headaches body aches and a slight tenderness in my boobs however I’m not cramping. I do feel kind of bloated and I’m crazy emotional. It’s all driving me crazy. I’m not sure if I should wait a little longer to test or not. My doctor said that The one I took at 4 days late was accurate and I couldn’t be pregnant but with each passing day I get more and more sick and a new symptom shows it’s face. I just want to know if I am or not. The wait is literally driving me crazy. At what point do I stop testing and when do I call a doctor?

    1. Hi Maria,
      So, it sounds like you should have had your period around September 5th. Did you have the IUD out because you did want to try to see if you could get pregnant? You do sound like you have some symptoms that are strange for you. My suggestions would be to wait some more as you MD said, take another urine test early in the am (first morning urine, if you have slept all night, is usually the most concentrated) or try to see your PCP, NP or a Health Care Center for a blood pregnancy test. By now that should be showing positive if in fact you are pregnant. Hope this helps, keep us posted.

  54. Hello!

    I’m 32 yrs old, I’ve been off birth control for almost two years with a fairly regular cycle 23-28 days for the past year, no exceptions. My last period began August 5th, I had sex unprotected, sometime between 17-20 and again 24-25. I expected to get my period sometime between 9/1-6, but it never came. I’ve been getting hormonal migraines around my period for the last 6-8 months, nothing this month Nor did I break out/mood swings as usual. Around the 25th I began to lose my appetite, feel so full I couldn’t eat more than a few bites at a time, frequent urinating and bloating/constipation. I have been feeling cramps and lower back pain along with heart burn and acid reflux since 9/3 but never received my period. I took a preg test yesterday mid day after drinking lots of water (neg) but thought Maybe it was diluted and took it again this morning (another neg). Is there a chance I had a false negative even though I would be 4-6 weeks preg? Should I be concerned about other health issues (ectopic preg? Ovarian cancer)? I’ve had zero spotting..

    1. Dear Mari,
      Thank you for your inquiry. You are correct in the fact that drinking a lot of water will dilute your HCG level which is the hormone secreted by the forming placenta, and is what is detected in a urine pregnancy test to indicate pregnancy. Repeating the test was the correct thing to do, using your first urine of the day.
      Two negative pregnancy tests at 4-6 weeks is possible, however, most tests are sensitive to HCG at this point. HCG levels would most likely be elevated in an ectopic pregnancy.
      There are other factors that can affect your periods and it is best to consult with your doctor if these symptoms persist.
      Our services are limited to pregnancy confirmation: pregnancy testing, ultrasound, and pregnancy options counseling. If you would like to schedule an appointment for pregnancy testing and ultrasound (if medical criteria is met) please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.

  55. So, I am always on time with my periods my husband and I have been trying for awhile. So my last period was July 28-2. I know we tried the beginning of August but also August 17 we tried as well. I’ve had no positive tests yet. I went for blood testing on Sept 1 and it came back negative. I’ve had a lot of symptoms so far and I’m just wondering what to think. My doctor did give me a requisition form for an ultrasound on this coming Tuesday to confirm. Could this be chemical or did I test to early?

    1. Hi Shalynn,

      Thank you for your inquiry. Ovulation begins mid-cycle (approximately 10 days after the first day of your last period). This is the most favorable time to get pregnant. Aubust 17th would be around that time with the dates you have listed. September 1st would only be two weeks after August 17th. It may be too early to get an accurate reading on a pregnancy test as the hormone level (hCG) that pregnancy tests detect in your urine may be too low for the test to read. When taking a pregnancy test, wait until the first urine of the day (in the morning when you first wake up).
      If the test is still negative and you continue to feel like you are pregnant, call your doctor to schedule a check up as other factors may be causing you to miss your period. I hope this helps! If you would like to schedule an appointment for pregnancy testing and ultrasound (if medical criteria is met) please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.

  56. I suppose to see my period around 22/23 of August but I saw it around 29 of August,i had sex the 4th day I finished my period and since last I have been having serious headache,too much sleeping,and I eat more than before,frequent urine,running stomach,big belly.but the pregnancy test is negative what is happening to me

    1. Hi Mary,

      Thank you for your inquiry. With the information you have listed, it is difficult to say what exactly is happening with your body. You should be starting your period this week if you have a 28-30 day cycle. Ovulation occurs mid-cycle (approximately 10 days after the first day of your period) which is the best time to get pregnant. It sounds like that time for you would have been around September 5th.
      It may be too early to get an accurate pregnancy test. Also, it sounds like it would be too early for you the have such strong symptoms. If these symptoms persist especially the head ache, you should seek medical care immediately. If you would like to schedule an appointment for pregnancy testing and ultrasound (if medical criteria is met) please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.

  57. Hi, I’m 42, my last period was beginning of July and lasted 25 days some days was normal bleeding some days was like only spotting, I now have passed 2 cycles no period, at ob/gyn end of July I was told had small cyst no worries, bladder slightly tilted no worries and ovaries looked great, I have nauseous feeling every morning, slight dizziness some days, i have taken 2 test both negative….i have no symptoms of premenopause. What could cause this with both test negative?

    1. Hi Jeorgia,

      Thank you for your question. One of the symptoms of pre-menopause is irregular periods. Conditions other than pregnancy can affect your period cycle. I am happy to hear you wne tto see your OB/GYN and suggest you call them for further evaluation if your symptoms continue.

  58. Feeling all signs of pregnancy and iv been waiting for over two months to see my period… But its still not coming forth…iv done a blood test…its negative… I also did urine test …its the same thing….repeated the blood test last week still negative… Is there anything wrong… But my boobs are heavy and I feel crampy beneath my abdomen too

    1. Hi Grace,

      Thank you for your inquiry. A blood test for pregnancy can be negative if it was done too early. I’m wondering where you are getting the blood tests done? There are a number of factors that can contribute to periods being late and/or irregular.
      If you do not get your period and are still having symptoms, that concern you, please seek medical care to address your concerns.

  59. I am currently 8 days late on my period. My fiancé and I had sex on my highest ovulation date. I have PCOS, but my cycles have been 28-30 days for the last 3 years. I have been feeling light-headed and dizzy. I already urinate a lot. I am mildly cramping I my stomach and feel so tired. I have light nauseous and heartburn, specifically after I eat. My nipples are so sore and have bumps on them. My whole body is aching. I have taken 5 pregnancy tests, all have been negative. Is it possible that my PCOS may be effecting my HCG levels?

    1. Hi Casey,

      Thank you for your inquiry. It is possible that PCOS may be affecting your hormones. In order to try and get an accurate reading on a pregnancy test, it is best to test using the first urine of the day when you get up in the morning. If you are still experiencing symptoms, you should consult your doctor.

  60. HI, I am 43, I had my last period was July 28 for 3 days my cycle is normally 28 -30 days I was delayed for 13 days when I went for OB as I was never missed my period for this long. But when I undergo for ultrasound there was no sign of pregancy. So, she prescribed me to take Duphaston for 10 days. I went for a blood test the following day to check my hormone balance and it shown that my I have a little high Prolactin. I was advised to take Norprolac by my OB once I have my period for 30 days. On Sept 9, I started to have spotting and light bleeding for 15 days. I have taken 3 pregnancy test, 1-on Sept 10, 12 and 22, all have shown negative results. Since, I only have light bleeding I did note the medicine Norprolac. Kindly advise me if i should take the Norprolac or not… I was advised by my OB to get back after 30 days.

    Thanks,
    Cha

    1. Dear Czarina
      It sounds like the best thing to do would be to continue to check in with your OB/Primary Care doctor where you are under their care. Unfortunately, I cannot give other advice where I have not done blood work or ultrasound. Sounds a little confusing but I am sure that you will be able to sort it all out especially your high prolactin level. I am glad you are under medical care to figure this all out. I am sorry we couldn’t be more helpful. Please keep us posted as you continue care with your doctors.

  61. So I missed my period that I am late I took 1 pregnancy test that looked like a negative but I was sure because I though I could see a second line coming up so I just went about my day thinking it was negative came back to toss it later and it showed positive waited about 2 days took a different pregnancy test that showed negative. I am now six days late . Should I stick with a negative or think it’s positive?

  62. So I missed my period , took a pregnancy test that was negative but also looked like it might have had a very very light positive line but I could tell is I was just seeing things, so I went about my day and came back later to toss the test and noticed that it definitely had 2 lines at this point. I have hard so much about evap lines so I waiting 2 days and took a different test that showed negative. I am now 6 days late, show i retest in a few more days or the first test was just a fluke or evap line ? I have woken up 2 or 3 time with nausea over the past 2 weeks but nothing consistent or any other symptoms I can think of.

    1. Hi Nicole,
      Every so often a urine pregnancy test is inaccurate. Hopefully you are using good quality tests.
      If you are near one of our Centers (Rever, Fall River, Sturbridge) we would be happy to do a lab quality urine pregnancy test for you. If that is negative and you are still feeling that you are pregnant, I would suggest that you go to your health care provider and have a blood pregnancy test. This test would be accurate in detecting the pregnancy hormone, hCG. I hope this was helpful.

  63. I recently had pregnancy test come up positive on 9/18, two days after my period was supposed to start. I went to my doctor on 9/22. I had taken a test at home each day prior to the appointment and they were all positive. I was just notified that the urine test at the doctor came up negative. Should I still think I’m pregnant? I haven’t gotten my period and the doctor gave no reference to my not being pregnant. She changed my medicines, told me to get my prenatal vitamins and referred my to an OB. Now I’m concerned I’m not pregnant. I’m 38 and we just started trying to have a baby so this is certainly nerve-racking. I’m just not sure what to think and I’m waiting on the OB to even tell me if they will see me this early.

    1. Hello Caitlin,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical. Your not knowing what to think is certainly understandable considering the information you have been given!
      I would call your doctor back and have them clarify their information that they relayed to you. if it does not change, I would question whether they can order a blood test to confirm pregnancy before they refer you to an Obstetrician. It is confusing as to why they would refer you to OB services with a negative test result.

    1. Hi Jennifer,
      If you had a positive pregnancy test, then two negative tests it is possible that you had an early miscarriage. A missed period with the positive test would not be unlikely. Have you had a period since your negative tests?
      You may also consider contacting your OB/GYN to let them know you had a positive pregnancy test and missed period, but now have negative pregnancy tests in case they decide you should be seen for a follow up visit.

So me and my husband have been trying to have a baby I think I might of had my period on the sept. 22nd 2020 but it was very light and light pink some times it was a bright red but I only used 4 liners regular ultra thin didnt fill them up it only lasted 2 days light cramping usually I go threw 13 regular tampons and fill them up but it seems weird I took a pregnancy test it said negative am I pregnant or not

    1. Hello Esperanza,
      Thank you for contacting Your Options Medical.
      With the information you have provided, it is unclear as to when exactly was your last normal period and whether 9/22 was when you expected to start a period. Conception is more likely to occur in the middle of your menstrual cycle, approximately 2 weeks after you start your period. If you conceived in August, you should be far enough along where a pregnancy test should test you positive. If you got pregnant in September, you would be in early pregnancy. A next step would be to retest in about a week. If it is still positive and you don’t start your period when expected, a visit with your OB/GYN would be a good idea as many conditions can affect your periods.

  66. So I took emergency pills twice last month in the space of one week and my period came out 4 days later , which is last month . This month my period is 7 days late. Took a urine and blood test , both negative. I’m confused because my breast is heavy, little cramps . Pls what should I do .

    1. Dear Jannie,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical.
      The “morning after ” pill, which is what it seems you are referring to, contains drugs and/or hormones that can affect your period. If you do not get a period in the next week of so, you can repeat a pregnancy test. If it is still negative, you should consider seeing your primary care physician or OB/GYN for follow up.
      Please note that the “emergency pill” is just that and is not meant to be used as a birth control method. As with all medications, it can have adverse side effects. If by chance, this is how you thought of it, you may want to consider speaking to your doctor about more appropriate birth control options.

  67. My last period start date was August 22nd. Two days before my period was due to start I had very light spotting and cramping for 1 day. My period was supposed to start 9/19. I have taken several pregnancy test including one a digital on this morning that all say negative. I’ve been experiencing tiredness and breast have felt very full and have been painful throughout the week. My periods are normally on time and very heavy for the first two days-which is why I’m convinced that light spotting was NOT my period. What should be my next step?

    1. Dear Marissa,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Option Medical.
      Many conditions can affect your period. Without knowing more specific information regarding your circumstances, it is difficult to make any determination regarding your situation.
      With that in mind, the next step for you would be to repeat a pregnancy test in a week or son. If it is still negative and you don’t start your period, you should consider a medical follow-up with your primary care physician or your OB/GYN doctor.

  68. Hi i already sent a text but I really need a real personal to talk too, I’m very concerned I might but pregnant and the urine test at the OGYN was wrong when it said negative twice and their are dire things apart of how it happen that I feel that it would more likely have been wrong and if so I have Nexplanon and I need to get it removed so it won’t harm my baby!! Because I wanna keep my baby

    1. Hi Angelina,
      Have taken a home pregnancy test? You said the two at the MD office were negative. Did they do a blood pregnancy test? That might be the next step. Every so often a urine test can be negative, but the blood test is more accurate.
      I would recheck with your doctor regarding removing the Nexplanon if you are concerned about that. Did you and the doctor discuss that when you were there for the pregnancy tests by chance? Please keep us posted.

  69. I had a LEEP procedure done on September 12, 2020. Since then I am currently 57 days into my cycle with no period in sight. I do suffer from irregular periods but for a few months now it has come between 35-44 days. I also want to add that I have hypothyroidism. Could I be pregnant even though I took a test on Thursday, Sept 24, 2020, and was negative? I haven’t had any PMS symptoms which is strange. I have however felt more tired than usual and had sudden cravings for strawberry drinks along with an increase in hunger.

    1. Hello LIna,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical.
      It is possible to get false negative pregnancy results, typically if the test is done too early to detect the HCG (pregnancy hormone) level in your urine.
      If you do not start your period and a repeat pregnancy test taken in a week or so is still negative, you should consider seeing your primary care physician for a check up. Nausea and vomiting can be a sign or symptom of other issues besides pregnancy and warrants a medical follow up.

  71. So I took a pregnancy test the 21st of September in the morning around 10ish which was a day after the last day of my missed period and gat a negative then the same day around 8 pm I received two positive test with faint lines and still no period and October first I took another one and it was positive but I’m trying to guess when my due date will be before I go to the doctors how would I figure that out?

    1. Hello Ayrion,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical with your question.
      A due date is calculated by counting 280 days (40 weeks) from the 1st day of your last period, assuming you have an average 28-day cycle. This is the date your doctor will be looking for. Ultimately, the best way to determine gestational age and a due date is with an ultrasound.

  72. Hi I have been taking the depo for about two years and I stop recently decided I didn’t want to take it anymore I’ve been having some of the same symptoms I had when I was pregnant with my son but when I took a pregnancy test it came out negative I’m not sure how long I should wait to take another because while being on the depo I didn’t get a period and I still haven’t had a period since stopping the depo. What should I do?

    1. Hello Lekeithia,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical with your question.
      Depo-Provera contains a hormone progestin. It typically suppresses ovulation, which is when your body releases an egg. It can take 10 months or so for you to start ovulating again once you stop receiving injections. You don’t indicate exactly how long it has been since you stopped taking the injections. Some women reportedly have experienced flu like symptoms after stopping Depo-Provera injections.
      If you don’t start your period, you could repeat the pregnancy test again in a week or two. If it is negative and you are still experiencing the same symptoms, you should consider consulting with your OB/GYN or PCP.

  73. My last period was in August I am now 9 days late , however I am exclusively breastfeeding my 9 month old baby , I took a test and got a faint positive , then about two hours later I took another to be sure and it was negative? Is it possible I can be pregnant?

    1. Hello Christina,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical with your question.
      First off, congratulations on your new addition to your family!
      Exclusive breastfeeding can be an effective means of contraception for the first 6 months or so of your baby’s life, after that it is questionable. Having a period also decreases its effectiveness. You should not count on breastfeeding as a contraceptive at this point.
      Morning’s first urine is when the HCG (pregnancy hormone) level is most concentrated. A test taken later on in the day could have a lower, less detectable level, depending on how early in the pregnancy one is. You can repeat the pregnancy test in a week or two if you don’t have a period.

    1. Hi Seren,

      I apologize for the delay in response! We would recommend you see your primary care physician or your OB/GYN. Birth control can affect a woman’s cycle significantly so it may take a bit for your cycle to regulate. However, if you are having concerning symptoms it is always best to speak with your doctor.

  75. I have been super emotional then really angry back and forth lately, I puked a couple times after trying to drink some alcohol and have been super nauseous. I took 3 pregnancy tests and all came out negative… I haven’t had my period in about 6 months or so. I tried to bleach test and it fizzed up a lot and I’m just not sure if I’m pregnant or not. I cried my eyes out when I saw the last pregnancy test I took was negative.

    1. Hi Amanda,
      Well you taught me something- I have never heard of the bleach test. Is it supposed to turn a different color- you said it fizzed up? What is it supposed to do if you are pregnant? I would suggest you go to a health clinic, your primary care physician, or nurse practitioner for a blood urine test. You said you have not had your period for 6 months. That should probably be evaluated. A blood pregnancy test will be accurate in detecting the hCG pregnancy hormone. If that is positive and you would like an Ultrasound, we are able to do that to determine how far along you are. Please bring proof of that positive blood test in order for our Center to do the Ultrasound. For an appointment, please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.

  76. Hello My name is Destinee and I wanted to know if I’m pregnant or not since I started spotting and bleeding for like 3 days before I usually come on my period and it has been 7 days now I haven’t still gotten my period and I took two iTunes tests and it came back negative so should they draw my blood to see if I’m pregnant?

    1. Hi Destinee
      Yes, I would suggest that if you are feeling like you are pregnant and the urine pregnancy tests are coming back negative (even if you did the first one in the am – first morning urine) then having a blood pregnancy test is advisable. That will be accurate in showing the level of hCG pregnancy hormone especially if you feel you are at least 7-10 days after conception.
      If the blood pregnancy test is positive and you would like an ultrasound to determine how far along you are, we are able to do that. Please bring the report of the positive blood test with you. Feel free to give us a call at 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.

  77. Hello, I been having pregnancy symptoms for about 3 weeks or so. My belly keeps getting bigger and it’s harder on the bottom, like a pregnancy belly usually is. And I had implantation bleeding last week but every test is still coming up negative. With my other 2, I found out at 4 weeks but I didn’t know if gettin my mirena out after 3 years 8 weeks ago and being on blood thinners could effect a positive test??? I’m at a loss of what to do at this point

    1. Hi Rachel,
      Thank you for your question regarding can you be pregnant with a negative urine pregnancy test. A question I would ask is have you taken the pregnancy test using the first urine in the morning when it tends to be a little more concentrated? If that shows negative and you continue to not have your period, I would suggest that you try to have a blood pregnancy test. That should be more accurate. Your primary care physician, nurse practitioner or Health clinic would be able to do that. If that is positive and you would like an Ultrasound, we are able to do that for you. (Just bring your proof of Pregnancy from that blood work). Feel free to call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.

  78. Hi am lizy …been dealing with pcos for 10 years now and I don’t menstruate often, last month (September15) I had a blood pregnancy test and it was positive but I was told it was not clear…so I did a scan (September 28) and I was told there is nothing there that I should wait for few weeks but all the urine test have been taking it’s negative for a month plus now. Am just confused

    1. Hello Lizy,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical with your question.
      With the information you have given, it would seem that you could have had an early miscarriage. As you probably already know, PCOS can put you at a higher risk of having a miscarriage. Without knowing the reason you sought a pregnancy test and how far along you could have been, it seems that your HCG (pregnancy hormone) could have been high enough to register a positive pregnancy test, but maybe didn’t match the dates and length of gestation you should have been; and that is why “it was not clear”. Ultrasound would show a pregnancy, so the finding that there was no indication of pregnancy lends confirmation to the negative tests.
      You could follow up with the office that did your blood test and ultrasound if you have more concerns or continue to think you may be pregnant.
      I hope this helped clear come of your confusion. At Your Options Medical we offer free pregnancy testing and ultrasounds. For an appointment, please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.

  79. My period is over a month late and I am experiencing alot of pregnancy symptoms and my breasts are getting bigger. And all of my tests are negative besides one that was positive but it was so faded I couldn’t see it.

    1. Hello Vanessa,
      Thank you for contacting Your Options Medical with your concern.
      I am wondering if your positive pregnancy test was the first one that you took? Urine pregnancy tests measure the amount of hCG (pregnancy hormone) in your urine, a hormone that increases in pregnancy. A positive pregnancy test followed by negative tests could be an indication of a miscarriage.
      As with any medical concerns, if you are still concerned you may be pregnant despite negative pregnancy tests. a blood test would be more definitive. You should contact your PCP or OB/GYN for this test.

  80. Hello, I had sex, and about 6 days after had light bleeding, not normal bright red period bleeding but dark brown stuff, a few weeks later I threw up a few times, and symptoms changed to occasionally severe fatigue, congestion, total loss of taste (I still have this), food aversions, and food cravings, and now constant gas and bloating. I saw my ob-gyn, she did a pregnancy test and it came out negative so she sent me on my way and said even if I wanted an ultrasound the hospital would not authorize one unless I tested positive, I went to planned parenthood to have one of those intravaginal ultrasounds, I would have been about 6 weeks, and they saw nothing – but the symptoms continue and keep changing….I thought maybe it was covid but I’ve tested negative twice. I have read that pregnancy tests, even done weeks after pregnancy, can come up negative, I would be about close to 12 weeks now, of which I would think HCG would definitely show up because the concentrations get higher – but still negative, I’m going back to see the ob-gyn but if she says no ultrasound for my own sanity I’m going back to planned parenthood – at 12 weeks would they definitely see something if I was pregnant – I’ve read about things called “cryptic” or “stealth” pregnancies where women get their period throughout and have no idea they’re pregnant, or the have something like Polycystic ovarian syndrome and their hormones fluctuate radically so urine tests come up negative – would taking a blood test really be more sensitive than a urine test? I would think that at 12 weeks I should definitely be testing positive if I was pregnant, but I am not – I am going crazy from this – my Dad has cancer and I cannot let me family know or else things will go to hell – so I have to have this resolved right away – but I do not want to go back to the ob-gyn just to have her say: you tested negative so we’re not going to do anything else. Thank you for listening and your help!

    1. Hello Catherine,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical with your questions and concerns.
      You certainly have a lot going on in your life right now! I’m so sorry to hear of your Dad’s cancer diagnosis.
      From the information you have given, it sounds like you are thinking you are pregnant because of the symptoms you are experiencing. Have you not had a period during this time? Maybe you would be more at ease if you had another pregnancy blood test as it is more sensitive than the urine test. A repeat ultrasound at 12 weeks would definitely show a pregnancy however, most medical facilities will not do an ultrasound without a positive pregnancy test due to the lack of an indication to do an invasive procedure.
      At Your Options Medical we offer free lab quality pregnancy tests and free limited obstetrical ultrasounds, as well as pregnancy options counseling. Like your OB/GYN, for your health and safety, we need a positive pregnancy test before we would do an ultrasound.
      There are many factors that could cause the symptoms you are experiencing. Is it possible that the stress over your Dad’s cancer diagnosis, and family dynamics involved, are affecting you? If your symptoms persist or get worse, you should seek medical help to rule out other possible causes for your symptoms.

    1. Hello Sabrena,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical with your questions and concerns.
      There are multiple conditions that can affect your period. Factors such as age and stress alone can affect your cycle and menstruation. From the dates you have given, your last normal period would have been in July and if you were pregnant, you would be approximately 12 weeks. Your pregnancy test should definitely read positive at this point if you were pregnant.
      Do you have an OB/GYN you could consult with? If you continue to have symptoms that concern you , a follow up with your doctor would be in order.
      We offer free pregnancy testing and free limited obstetrical ultrasounds as well as pregnancy options counseling in our three locations. For an appointment, please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.

  82. HI, I had my nexplanon removed on sept 21, 2020 and my doctor said my period should stay normal but here I am 8 days late for period. I thought my period was coming because I felt little cramping, but still nothing. I have been feeling a little different, my nipples are always hard and I always feel turned on all day which is definitely out the normal for me. I don’t know if my hormones are just out of whack or what. I’ve been getting slight headaches and I feel nauseous but only I feel it in my mouth only like that watery feeling sometimes its random but it happens pretty much every time I eat but I took a home test and it says negative, I don’t know if I should continue to wait it out, or if its just all in my head

    1. Hello Nook,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical.
      The Nexplanon is a hormone releasing implant that stops the ovaries from releasing eggs. After the implant is removed, the hormone balance is affected. This may cause some of the symptoms you are experiencing.
      You could repeat a pregnancy test in a week or two if you do not start your period. If you do not want to become pregnant, you should consider other methods of birth control. If you still don’t have a period in the next cycle, and have negative tests, but still have symptoms, you should consider consulting your OB/GYN.

  83. My periods have always been regular. I never missed a single period in my life.
    But, all of a sudden my period has stopped and I have pelvic pain that comes and go
    My Last period was on July 29, 2020..After, which I was involved in some s* activity (No vaginal penetration) and I was stressed that my periods will stop. So, I went to doctor and was prescribed Medroxyprogesterone. I took 4 tablets, one tablet per day. Then, on August 29, 2020 when i stopped taking the tablet, there was very very light bleeding unlike my usual periods for 2-3 days.
    I again missed period on September 2020, and it’s been 10 days of october but still no periods. Only pelvic pain and breasts seem full/enlarged, have headache.
    Did take Blood hCG but it was negative.

    1. Hello Sabrina,
      There are a number of factors that can affect your periods other than pregnancy; such as medical conditions and other factors like age and stress.
      It seems your best course of action at this time is to consult with the doctor who prescribed the Medroxyprogesterone. This medical professional will have the best collection of your information to guide you and give you treatment if necessary.

  84. Hi, I am Trish. I had taken Two Urine Pregnancy Test both came out negative and a blood pregnancy test negative on my 38th day cycle,. But since then until now, I am 4 days late, I have no period.
    Could it be possible that I am pregnant but took the test too early? or are there any possible reasons?

    1. Hello Trisha,
      I am wondering…are you saying you have a 38-day cycle? How late were you when you took the pregnancy test? If the test is taken too early, it could read negative. A blood test is typically very sensitive in reading the hCG (pregnancy hormone) level. You could repeat the test in a week or two if you do not start your period.
      With the information you’ve given, it is not possible to say if you could be pregnant or not, nor why your period would be late. There are multiple factors that could affect your period. A medical follow up with your doctor would best serve you if you continue to have issues surrounding your period.

  85. Hi! Mglast intercourse was on august and had a light period on august 23rd it was light that could fill a 2 panty liner a day and it lasted for only 5 days then after 2 weeks i got a bleeding again and still it was light and lasted for 3 days. And now i’m confused since i’m having symptoms like nausea, feeling tired and headaches but my breast doesn’t sore at all. I did 2 pregnancy test last september but it was negative and tried it again this month but still 2 negative test. But I’m confused since i’m anemic and experiencing acid reflux. Is it possible that i’m pregnant?

    1. Hello Shane,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical.
      If you have had 4 pregnancy tests it is doubtful that you would be pregnant.
      Considering your change in periods, your reported anemia and acid reflux, I would urge you to visit your Primary Care Physician and have them guide your diagnosis and treatment. There are multiple factors that can affect your period, so medical direction would be the best course for you.

  86. Hello! I am 2.5 months late, I’ve had irregular periods before and this is the second time I’ve been 2 months late. I have the PARAGARD IUD. I took a home test 2 weeks ago and it came back negative. I haven’t had any symptoms except back pains but I figured it’s been from working at home. I’ve also been spotting off and on, is it possible to have a false negative test this late?

    1. Hello Daliha,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical.
      It is possible to have a false negative pregnancy test, but by 8 weeks of pregnancy, the test should read positive. Since you have been this late in the past, a repeat pregnancy test in a week or two is a reasonable next step.
      One note of concern surrounds your reported PARAGARD IUD in place and back pain. Ectopic pregnancy is a risk with IUD in place. I strongly suggest you consult your OB/GYN and tell them your symptoms. They may want to do an ultrasound to rule out ectopic pregnancy or any other issue with your IUD.

  87. Hi, I took 2 pregnancy test one 5 days before my missed period and then another 3 days before my missed period but now I’m 2 days late . Is it possible to be pregnant? My period are regular I never go a month without having a period

    1. Hello Erin,
      Thank you for your question.
      Depending on the quality of the pregnancy test, an accurate reading is possible as early as 7-10 days after conception. I am assuming the tests you took were negative?
      There are many factors that can affect your period. A repeat pregnancy test in a week or two, if you don’t start, would be a reasonable next step.
      If you continue to have difficulty surrounding your periods, consult your primary care physician or OB/GYN for further guidance.

  88. Hi, so I am a bit worried. I haven’t had my period since june and since it has been five months and pregnancy tests are still reading negative. Could it be something else or are my hormones just not kicking in? I got a blood test after the first two missed months and it was read negative. What could this mean? Everything about me is normal but my period has been gone awhile.

    1. Hello M,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical.
      There are many factors and conditions that can affect your periods. Age, stress and other physical conditions can alter periods and your cycle. A visit to your primary care physician or OB/GYN would best serve you to get to the bottom of why you have missed periods.

  89. Hi, I’ve been on the depo for about 9 months. I had a period in the beginning of September it lasted for like week. I feel like im having pregnancy symptoms (nausea, vomiting, tiredness, cramping). I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative but i feel like i took it too early. I’ve read about some women getting pregnant on depo. Is it possible for me to be pregnant? Some people have told me that urine test aren’t always accurate? Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Alana,
      Thank you for your inquiry.

      First, yes it is possible to get pregnant even when using birth control methods. Additionally, urine tests are less accurate than blood tests. You could visit your primary care physician or OB/GYN to receive a blood pregnancy test which would be more accurate than a urine test.
      It may also be that you could have tested to early. We recommend taking a urine pregnancy test one week after you were due to begin your period. Also, it is best to test using your first urine of the morning.
      I hope this information was helpful to you.

    1. Hello Ashley,

      Thank you for your inquiry. As you read in the blog, it is possible to be pregnant and receive a negative test result on a pregnancy tests. There can be many different reasons for this.
      We typically recommend taking a urine pregnancy test one week after you are due to begin your period. Also, it is best to test using your first urine of the day. If you are concerned due to pregnancy-like symptoms, you can request a blood pregnancy test from your primary care physician or local health center.

    1. Hi Misha,

      Thank you for your inquiry.
      We cannot diagnose you. But please know that it is possible to have a positive test and then a negative test for reasons such as an early miscarriage. If you have not already, you could request a blood pregnancy test from your primary care physician or local health center. These tests are more accurate than urine tests.

  93. Hi I am currently about 30 days past my ovulation day. I have missed my period last month and 2 weeks away from the start of it this month, I believe I’m pregnant but all tests have come back negative. I am currently trying to get pregnant. Is it possible I am pregnant and the test are not picking it up?

    1. Hello Alaina,
      Thank you for contacting Your Options Medical with your question.
      It is possible to have a negative pregnancy test when pregnant. The test could be done too early or incorrectly or may not be effective enough to detect hCG (pregnancy hormone) in your urine.
      If you do not start your next period, you can repeat a test. If still negative, you could consider consulting with your primary care physician or OB/GYN for a blood pregnancy test as there are other factors that can affect your period.

  94. Hello my name is Rachel,

    I am 5 days late for my period. I’ve been getting mild but on/off abdominal cramping for like 2 weeks, fatigue levels up, pressure/bloating, weird smells/tastes, eating/craving tons of junk food (I’m a health nut) and constipation!! But I’ve taken 2 tests, 4 days apart, and both were negative. I took the first at night, the second in the morning today (5 days late today). The latest my period has ever been since I was 12 (I’m 28) is 35 days between cycles. Im at day 36 today. I’m VERY regular, average cycle 29-30 days. Is this like the craziest coincidence of my life that I have all these symptoms of pregnancy but my period is just the latest it’s ever been or do you think there’s still a chance I could be pregnant?

    1. Hello Rachel,
      Thank you for contacting Your Options Medical with your question.
      I understand that it can be disconcerting when your period regularity changes. There are many things that can affect your period other than pregnancy; factors including medical issues, medications, age and stress. Just a thought is that a change in eating habits alone could be the cause of your “pressure/bloating” fatigue, cramping and constipation.
      If you don’t start your period, you can consider repeating a pregnancy test or consulting with your primary care physician or OB/GYN.

  95. Hi, I thought that I might’ve been pregnant last cycle, as I experienced very sore tender breasts, spotting, metallic taste, and cramping after unprotected sex. But I thought I got my period, however I am still experiencing these symptoms (minus the spotting). There is no possibility that I could be pregnant if I got negative test results, and had clotting in what I thought was my period, right?

    1. Hello LJ,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical.
      It is difficult to give you a definitive answer to your question with the information you have provided. Negative pregnancy tests can occur if the test was done too early. Have you repeated your pregnancy test? Have you missed a period? If you have not started your period when expected, you could repeat the pregnancy test.
      If you do not start your period and are still having symptoms with a negative pregnancy test, you could consider a visit to your primary care physician or OB/GYN and get a blood pregnancy test.

  96. Hi, so I’ve been wondering if I’m pregnant because I’ve been having the symptoms. so I took a test 14 days after my expected period and the first was negative but the second was a extremely faint line, could it be possible that the second is a false positive?

    1. Hi Julie,

      Thank you for your inquiry.
      I would suggest taking another pregnancy test. I recommend taking the test first thing in the morning as this is when your urine is most concentrated so the test would be able to better detect the presence of hCG (pregnancy hormone) in your urine. Since you are experiencing pregnancy-like symptoms, you could also request a blood pregnancy test from your doctor. These tests are more accurate at detecting pregnancy than urine pregnancy tests. This way if you are not pregnant, you can consult with your doctor to find out why you are experiencing these symptoms.

  100. I have PCOS with mild symptoms and I am on Diane-35 bcp. My LMP was September 17, 2020 and according to my tracker my period was suppose to start on October 16, 2020. Instead, I had pink-ish brown spotting with a little clear discharge And mild cramping. I took a pregnancy test on the 20th and it was negative. Since then, my boobs have felt heavier and tender and I have a burning sensation in my nipples. I am constantly having headaches and I sometimes get nauseous when I’m hungry. Could I be pregnant, but took the test too early?

    1. Hi Tish,
      Yes, it could be that you took the pregnancy test too early. I would also make sure you take it the first urine in the morning as it is more concentrated. If you continue to test negative with the urine and continue to have symptoms, I would go to a health center and ask for a blood urine test. That might be more accurate at this time.

  101. Hi, I had intercourse on day 5 of my period About 6 weeks ago, I think it was protected then I took the morning after pill three days later. Since then I had a period but it was lighter than usual, i don’t think it was implantation bleeding because it was much heavier and definetly period blood with clots just in flow it was lighter. I’ve still been feeling a little nausea and cramps since the day I had intercourse and I have a lot of headaches and feel tired (Which could also all be because of anxiety and worrying.) All of my pregnancy tests have come out negative… can I trust the negative tests? And just put my mind at ease that it’s all anxiety?

    1. Hi Vic,

      Thank you for your inquiry.
      The best time to get an accurate reading on a pregnancy test is to try taking a test one week after you are due to begin your period. Also, we recommend taking a urine pregnancy test first thing in the morning as this is the time when the test is most likely to be able to detect the hCG (pregnancy hormone) in your urine. If after trying this the test is still negative, you could contact your doctor and request a blood pregnancy test. These are more accurate than urine pregnancy tests at detecting pregnancy.
      If you took the Morning After Pill, just know this is a hormone-based medication with potential side effects so that could be part of the symptoms you are experiencing. Of course, anxiety can definitely have affects as well. At this point, I would suggest seeing your doctor for a consultation to help put your mind at ease.

  102. I am 11 days late already and just had my 3rd negative result on pt. 1st and 2nd were negative, 3rd first negative but when I get to check it later that day, I saw a faint second line. Not sure if it’s what you call evap line. I can’t tell. Then I took my 4th attempt earlier today but came out negative again. I’m feverish, would occasionally feel cramps just like how I feel before and during my period. I could tell that my breasts are feeling kinda heavy and the other day my nipples would hurt even with a slightest touch. Feel very tired and dizzy and all that. What in the world is going on? My last period was last Sept 18 and still got no period today. What should I do?

    1. Hello Anne,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical with your question.
      With the information you have provided, it is difficult to say what is happening. There are a number of factors that could affect your period and cycle. Age and stress being two factors, as well as other medical issues.
      You could consider consulting with your doctor or OB/GYN for obtaining a blood pregnancy test. This would be more definitive than a urine pregnancy test.
      With your reported symptoms of feeling “feverish”, “very tired and dizzy”, it would definitely be prudent to contact your primary care physician for a visit.

  103. Hello,

    Thanks so much for your reply.

    Yes I mean I had my period two weeks ago and it was just lighter with blood clots, all my preg tests have been negative and I did one today in the morning and it’s also negative. My doctor says it’s just my anxiety playing up since I’ve already had a period and 10 negative pregnancy tests. It has been six weeks since I had sex so I guess the tests would defo show if I was pregnant… I will just trust the negative tests and put my mind at ease with that 🙂

    1. Hello Victoria,
      I am happy to see you have consulted with your doctor. Stress can definitely affect your period and cycle.

  104. So I been late for 13 days no period I been feeling tired mood swings and no appetite and throwing up I had 2 positive text and now they negative what does that mean

    1. Hello Stephanie,
      Thank you for contacting Your Options Medical with your question.
      I cannot say for sure what has happened in your case. It is possible your pregnancy tests were not accurate, either the positive or negative. It is also possible that you were pregnant and had a very early miscarriage. If you do not start your period, you could do another pregnancy test in a week or so. If you are still negative and don’t start your period, you would want to consider consulting with your PCP or OB/GYN. If it is positive, you should consult with your doctor and get a blood pregnancy test as blood tests are more accurate in detecting pregnancy than urine pregnancy tests.
      If your blood type is Rh negative, you should let your OB doctor know what has happened and that you may have had an early miscarriage.

  105. Hey, so I’m two days late and took a early pregnancy test this morning and it’s negative , but I’m showing some signs, it is possible that it could be to early and it’s a false negative ?

    1. Hello Destiny,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical with your question.
      Urine pregnancy tests measure HCG, a hormone that is produced by the placenta shortly after fertilization. If the pregnancy test is done too early the HCG level may be too low to detect. If you do not start your period, you could take a repeat pregnancy test in a week or so. If it is still negative and you do not start your period, you could consider consulting with you PCP or OB/GYN.

  107. Hi all,
    I had sex on 09/19/2020.
    Had what I thought was my period 2 weeks later that lasted for 3 days, which was abnormal for me. Then a week later I started bleeding light again. It stopped for two days and began again and lasted for 4 more days. It wasn’t super heavy. Just very dark in color. I have very full, tender breasts and headaches almost every day. I took 2 pregnancy tests and both were negative. Could this be an ectopic pregnancy or something completely unrelated?
    Of note, I am not on any kind of birth control and have not had any “irregular” periods previously.

    1. Hi Nicole,

      Thank you for your inquiry!
      It is always possible that you could be pregnant. The negative pregnancy test yet pregnancy-like symptoms could be a possible early miscarriage. Common symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy include bleeding, cramping, nausea and vomiting. The best way to rule out an ectopic pregnancy is through an ultrasound.
      Please know that we recommend the best time to take a pregnancy test is approximately one week after you are due to start your period and you should test using the first urine of the day. Since your previous tests were negative, you could request a blood pregnancy test from your primary care physician as these tests are more accurate at detecting pregnancy than urine pregnancy tests.

  108. Hi, I’m 8 weeks late on my period. I have had regular periods for the past 11 years. I have taken 4 pregnancy tests and they have all come back negative. I have no other symptoms. I’ve read that some women don’t have symptoms, and that sometimes getting a negative test could means twins (which I have a chance of having from both my partners side and my own) or that you could be having an ectopic pregnancy. I’m also in school and have been stressed, but it’s never delayed my period this long. I don’t know what’s happening and it’s making me even more stressed. Could I be pregnant?

    PS: also have a doctor’s appointment scheduled for next week.

    1. Hi Janel,

      Thank you for your inquiry!

      There are several reasons aside from pregnancy for a missed or delayed period including stress, sudden unexplained weight gain or loss, and more. Even if pregnancy is ruled out, you would do well to see your doctor for an exam to evaluate your health.

  109. good evening so I have a question for you I had sex with two guys one in January1 and the other one in feb3-5
    I took a pregnancy test on jan 15 negative I took a pregancy test on Feb 10 negative my due date was oct 22 lmp January 16 who can be the dad ? I’m nervous because what if the January 16 wasn’t my period and it was implantation bleeding i remember it being 4 days long and it was enough blood not like spooting but actual period

    1. Hello Gaby,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical with your question.
      The information you provide is really not enough to determine who the father would be. I have some other questions for you to help you try to figure this out.
      When did you have a positive pregnancy test? Did you give birth to the child? As you only mention a due date of Oct. 22., and not a birth date of Oct. 22. The delivery date would give you an idea of who the father is. Also, did you have an ultrasound to determine the gestational age of the baby?
      With a negative test and a period in mid-January, and a negative pregnancy test on February 10, it would seem you did not get pregnant on Jan.1.

    1. Hello Nicole,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical with your question.
      There are many factors other than pregnancy that can affect and /or delay your period. Age, medications, stress, body weight, illnesses and even excessive exercise, are among this list of factors.
      I would suggest you consult with your primary care doctor or your gynocologist if you do not start your period in the near future.

  110. Hi there! I am normally very regular with my periods (you could set a clock to it!!). But last month I was a week late (did eventually get it), and now this month I am late again (It has been 39 days since the start of my last period). I have taken 2 pregnancy tests. One at day 36 and again today at 39. Both negative. I am having intermittent cramping/low pelvic pain as well. Breasts are slightly tender but nothing crazy.I am 39 years old. Could this be the start of menopause?? I feel it’s so early but if my tests are negative, what else could it be?

    1. Dear Mary,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical with your concern.
      While early menopause is a possible explanation for your change in period cycles, there are many other factors that can affect/delay your period. There are a number of medical conditions like thyroid disease, diabetes, or celiac that can affect your period. Other factors include age, stress, medications, excessive exercise, and excessive weight loss or gain. Your cycle length may be changing.
      If you continue to have changes in your menstruation, or have an increase or continuation of abdominal pain or tenderness, you should consider consulting with your gynecologist or primary care physician.

    1. Hi Tree,

      Thank you for your inquiry. It is possible that you are pregnant and have a negative test result. You could request a blood test from your primary care physician or OB/GYN as these blood tests are more accurate at detecting pregnancy than urine tests.
      Please know that any type of birth control can cause a variety of side effects. You should also contact the doctor who perscribed the depo shot for a consultation.

  112. My girlfriend has had her tubes tied yes she is missed her. And she has familiar signs and symptoms of pregnancy what is the likelihood of that being possible and will it show up on a store-bought pregnancy test if she is

    1. Hello Ejordan,
      Thank you for reaching out to Your Options Medical with your question.
      It is possible to get pregnant after having a tubal ligation, there are a number of factors that could affect this. These include the type of procedure that was done, a woman’s age, and how long ago it was done.
      Urine pregnancy tests measure HCG (the pregnancy hormone) in the urine. This is a hormone that is produced during pregnancy. Should could request a blood test from her primary care physician or OB/GYN as these tests are more accurate at detecting pregnancy than urine pregnancy tests.
      Ectopic pregnancies, which is a pregnancy that forms outside of the uterus , can occur after a tubal ligation and can be life threatening to the mother. Signs of an ectopic pregnancy include abdominal/pelvic pain, bleeding that is not a period, lightheadedness and fainting. If she is pregnant, she needs to get medical attention as soon as possible to confirm an intrauterine pregnancy, which is where it needs to be.

  113. Hi, my lmp was on 11/01/20 I had unprotected intercourse on 11/12. I took a pregnancy test 11/24 it was negative. I had a light spotting for 6 days on 12/02. It is now 35 days since the spotting occurred I took two pregnancy test and negative on 01/04/21. I have been nauseous, motion sickness, food avoidance, exhaustion, no really hungry, watery mouth and most recently I have to urinate a lot and my urine is bright yellow. I feel pregnant but the test are saying I’m not.

    1. Hi Netty,

      Thank you for your inquiry!
      It is possible that you might be pregnant and receiving a false negative test result. You could ask your primary care physician or OB/GYN for a blood test as these tests are more accurate at detecting pregnancy than urine pregnancy tests. This way your doctor can perform an examination and if pregnancy is ruled out, look into your symptoms further.
      I hope this helps, please keep us posted and let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

  114. Hi, the first day of what I think was my last cycle was 12-1-2020. My cycle lasted for 4 days. On the last day significant other and I had intercourse. 13 days later on 12-17-20I got my period again but lighter. Could this have been implantation bleeding? It would be really weird to me to be getting my cycle again that early. Anyways after several negative pregnancy test here we are 26 days later and I have yet to have a cycle again as my cycles are usually 21-23 days long. Could I still be pregnant and testing negative even being about 6 weeks pregnant?

    1. Hi Missy,
      Thank you for your inquiry.
      To answer your question: yes, it is possible that you could be pregnant and receiving a false test result on the pregnancy tests. This can be due to several factors including the fact that you could be pregnant but very early on.
      Typically, we recommend the best time to take a pregnancy test is one week after you are due to start your period. Also, the best time to test is first thing in the morning. If the test reads negative, we recommend testing again in about one week.
      You may want to consider requesting a blood pregnancy test from your primary care physician or OB/GYN as these tests are more accurate at detecting pregnancy than urine tests. This way if pregnancy is ruled out, your doctor can further assess your symptoms.
