When Does a Pregnancy Test Turn Positive?



Two pregnancy tests
 

Along your journey to parenthood, one of the hardest times is what is affectionately known as the “two week wait”. Well, okay, maybe not so affectionately. These two weeks are the time after ovulation until the time when your period is actually due to start and when you can take a pregnancy test to see if you are actually pregnant this cycle.

Unfortunately, pregnancy tests do not run on magic – you cannot take one the morning after you had sex and assume that it will be positive, or negative.

How a Pregnancy Test Works:

In order for a home pregnancy test to show a positive result, something special needs to happen – an egg has to first be fertilized and then it has to implant itself in the uterus. Once this occurs, the pregnancy hormone hCG will begin to be secreted into the body.

A home pregnancy test analyzes your urine to see if there is any hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) present.

 

Types of Pregnancy Tests

The two most common methods of testing for pregnancy are blood based pregnancy tests and urine based home pregnancy tests. Both test for hCG levels; the only difference lies in that the former tests its levels within the blood stream while the later in the urine.





A positive blood test will usually show a positive result 3 to 4 days after implantation, or roughly 9 to 10 days after ovulation.

For a home urine test, however, a positive result will not be visible until a week after implantation or until you have a missed period. Do not buy into the myth that certain urine tests can give a positive result before you have missed your period. In actuality, only 25 percent of pregnant women will receive a positive home pregnancy test 2 days before they have missed their period. Approximately 40 percent of pregnant women will receive a positive test result the day before they have a missed period. On average, it will take at least 13 days after ovulation for a urine test to first turn positive.

Factors To Consider

Several factors may affect the time it takes for a pregnancy test to first show a positive result. These include the date of ovulation, date of implantation, hCG levels in either the blood stream or urine, and the sensitivity of the test. The date of ovulation is of great significance in calculating when a pregnancy test might first show a positive result, because it signifies that ovulation occurred and fertilization took place. The amount of time either this process, or the process of implantation, may take will differ between women. Therefore, though one woman’s pregnancy test may show positive today, another’s may only become positive a day or two later even if they were to have conceived on the same day.

The hCG levels in the urine and in the blood vary greatly as to the definition of what is ‘normal’ or ‘high’ and this affects how early a pregnancy can be identified. Though you may be pregnant, if you have a low hCG level you will receive a negative result, and it would take a few days for it to become positive. However, if your levels of hCG are at a high level, the blood or urine test will instantaneously show a positive. Also varied is the concentration of urine levels throughout the course of the day. This is why it is recommended that a home urine pregnancy test be done with first morning urine, when urine concentration is at its highest.

Pregnancy tests also vary in sensitivity. Low sensitivity tests tend to detect pregnancy earlier than highly sensitive ones. Pregnancy test sensitivities are indicated in mIU/ml, therefore a test with a sensitivity of 40 mIU/ml will require twice the amount of HCG than that of a test which has a sensitivity of just 20 mIU/ml.

    QUESTION: I have taken 3 pregnancy tests, all were negative. My period was due May 10 and here we are at May 30 and still no period. I do have sore breasts and and am more moody than usual but I still have no period. What should I do.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    At this point, you should go see a doctor to get a blood test.

  • JJW

    I received a period 2 days before it was suppose to come on and it only lasted 3 days. My breasts are sore, I’m having some stomach pain and I’m constantly feeling nauseated but all the pregnancy test say negative.. What should I do?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You should probably go to your doctor so they can pinpoint what your symptoms are indicative of.

  • jo

    I took a clearblue test yesterday and it was positive then took two more and they were negative. This is my fifth pregnancy and hasn’t happened before, I don’t know which one to believe

  • Nyomiie21

    Try another CB digital test today and depending on what it says book an appointment with your doctor :) hope alls ok at you get the result you want! Fingers crossed for u. Best of luck :) x

  • jo

    Thanks I will I have been feeling sick, I think the first picked it up and the others didn’t detect it maybe because it’s too early, thanks fingers crossed

  • chelsee

    ok so I went to the hospital several times for the same symptoms : nausea , ovarian pain , frequent urination etc.. and happen to look at the papers and I looked at the blood tests they ran & it said my hCg level was a 10 !! like Im so confused !! and im still having all the symptoms and there are new 1’s starting !! such as im very moody , a lot of smells make feel like im going to be sick !! what does that mean ?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, we aren’t doctors here so we can’t interpret what that could mean. You might want to call the doctor and ask to speak to a nurse. She may be able to help you figure it out.

  • excited!!

    I tested my blood serum at work. The test came out positive but it took about fifteen minutes to turn. Is that accurate since it took so long to turn positive.

  • Hmmm???

    I spotted the whole week prior to my scheduled period and have not felt right. Although my period also started, I still just do not feel right. I have taken several tests, all negative. Very confused.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Maybe you should see your doctor and get checked out to see if there is something going on with your hormones that could be making you feel this way.

  • mrs warner

    I may have pcos since i had irregular periods. However i lost weight and it became regulated. Been ttc to conceive. Had intercourse on my fertile days according to the ovulation calendar now i am 15 with out a flow. Should i test?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Did you use ovulation predictor tests to determine that you actually ovulated? I don’t understand what you mean that you are 15?

  • Roxanne

    I’m 16 had my period last on the 27/08/14 just came off the pills to have my period now I decided not to take the pills anymore. Before starting to take the pills I had a 25 days cycle my period is only 2 days long. Took 5 home pg tests all neg, only 1 day left in this month still no period PLEASE HELP!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It could take a while for your body to return to normal after you stop taking hormonal birth control. You might want to talk to the doctor to see how long it typically takes for your period to return to normal after stopping the pill.

  • Auleilei

    My last period was on august 26 started my period 4days late on september 30 then it lasted 2days and i still have cramps. When should i take a prego test

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Actually now would be an okay time to take a pregnancy test..

  • daysha

    My last period was in Aug 15 and my period didn’t come for Sept nd its now October 07 with pregnancy sign and I took a PT early nd it said negative what should I do nd need help nd Ihave more to say

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If the tests are negative, you might want to visit your doctor to find out why your period is missing. There may be a medical reason, like PCOS, that might be causing the problem.

  • Roxanne

    I went to see my doctor on the 06 of October took a PT and it said negative and as I posted before my last period was the 27 of August. The doctor said I should come back in three weeks time to do another test ,don’t know what to think.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Ultimately, until your see your period, you should keep in mind that pregnancy could be possible even with the negative tests. Eat healthily and take care of yourself as if were pregnant. If the period doesn’t arrive by the 3 weeks time period, you might want to demand that the doctor do a scan or blood tests to see if they can figure out why your period stopped.

  • Julie

    I have same my last period was 27 August I was six days early. My period still has not come I took sample to docs and results came back negitive. I am feeling all the symptoms tender breasts, mild cramping, feeling sick and tired! Please advise. Thanks

  • Julie

    Was meant for forum x

  • Kelly

    I took a pt this morning an as soon as I am done before I lay it down it’s says negative.. Is this right? I’m two days late an no signs of period..

  • sydneyrae

    So, I need help.
    My pregnancy test had a faint negative line. Hasnt ever been that faint, you could barely see it, but you could tell it was there, ya know? I’m almost two weeks late, on my period. When should I test again? My periods are regular.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You can’t assume you aren’t pregnant by a negative pregnancy test even when your period is already late. Either you need your period to arrive, get a positive pregnancy test or have a doctor perform an ultrasound to definitively know whether or not your are pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You should probably test again now. It almost sounds like you had a defective test if the test line was as light as you say.

  • sona

    Last month I had a brown discharge for 3 days after we tried for a baby (for the first time) and the doctor says its just ovulation blood and there is nothing to worry about!!
    Now in this month my period is already one week late..

    I totally dont have any idea of whats wrong with my period and even I dont know weather I am pregnant or not.. there is even no symptoms of being pregnant!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, there are many reasons why your period would be late. http://www.babyhopes.com/articles/periodlate.html If you are really concerned you can talk with your doctor. They should be able to ease your Ming a little.

  • mommytobe

    Had my period 9/08 for five days ( normal length) this month on 10/06 I started my “period” that lasted two days the third and fourth day I was spotting brown blood. Nothing that covered a pad or anything . my boyfriend has started having a crave mcdoubles sleeping later than normal and getting tired quicker in the day. While ive been having bad migranes as well as feeling exhausted at work. I did have cramping that came a day before 10/06. But when I’m menstrating cramping lasts days before a period .. Could I be preggo ? And if so, when should I test?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Sounds like you need to see your doctor to see about getting an ultrasound scheduled as pregnancy tests don’t typically work for you.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Either you are pregnant or you have a hormone imbalance going on. If you are pregnant, you should be coming up to the 2 month mark if you count the sorta period in September as you were already pregnant and you were just having early pregnancy bleeding. If your period doesn’t arrive, you should probably go to your doctor to find out what is going on.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    So, your period was from Sept. 30 to the 5th of Oct.? You said ovulation in your post but ovulation doesn’t last beyond one day. You had unprotected sex at the right time to get pregnant unfortunately so until your period arrives or your doctor gives you an ultrasound, you can’t rule that out. Sorry for the bad news.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you are pregnant and just had early pregnancy bleeding (the “period” on 10/6) you should be able to test now as you would have gotten pregnant in September. I am not sure if you typed the post right because you’d have a very tuned in boyfriend if he was craving the McDoubles on your behalf :D

  • Dimples5941

    I had a normal period in September. I have a 32 day cycle that lasts 4 days. Usually have a heavy flow/clots/etc. I started my “period” in October 6 days early. It was very light for 2-3 days and then gone. No clots-could have probably worn 1 pad/tampon for the entire thing. I was scheduled to start my period yesterday so I took a pregnancy test today and it was negative. Do you think I could be pregnant but testing too early? It seems as though if what I experienced was implantation bleeding that ended 4 days ago, I would be producing enough hcg to show on a test (25 miu). Thoughts?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It really depends on when you started your period in September. If it was implantation bleeding you would need to wait about 10 days after the initial bleeding to test to allow the hcg to build up to levels detectable by pregnancy tests.

  • Sherri Brewer

    Hi I’m a mother of 3 wonderful children. 2 girls ages 5 1/2 yrs & 4 1/2 yrs & a 11 month old boy. My periods have always been on time like clockwork & last 4 days long. 3 months ago my period changed. It went from a red color & 4 days to a brown & 2 1/2 days. 2 months ago same thing so I took a test it was negative. Then when I woke up next morning that same test showed a positive result. Last month my period was a week early brown in color & only 1 1/2 days long. Took another test same thing happened again. Negative result but next morning showed up as a positive result. This month I had my period the 1st it was brown again & lasted only 1 1/2 days then I was in e.r. 4 bowel issues. Urine PT came back negative but blood test stated inconclusive. My next period is due the 29th of October to the 1st of November. I don’t have any insurance right now so I don’t know what to do. Any ideas?

  • heather

    I had my period on September 30th, and only lasted 4 days, I’m not due for my period until the 30th of October, I had what I believe is implantation bleeding 2 days ago I’m just feeling off and was wondering what my chances were for getting pregnant.? I just came off of my birth control a month ago but it had been expired for a year.

  • Roxanne

    So I had a period on oct 20 it’s been 4 days and I’m still bleeding normally my period is only 2 days.

  • Miracle

    My last period was sep16 2014, I ovulated October 8th 2014 and was intimate with my husband on day of ovulation. A couple days later, I knew I had conceived I felt different, sore swollen breast , sore butt, tiredness. Food cravings and over eating. I took the HPT on the 16th, 17th, 20th & 21st and they were all negative , I did blood work and my doctors office yesterday and found out today the 23rd that I am pregnant. Exactly a year ago, I found out I was pregnant with a HPT which turned out to be an ectopic pregnancy I lost my baby and my right tube 12 weeks into my pregnancy. With a history of fibroids, endometriosis and ovarian cyst, it places me at high risk and it’s a miracle that I am able to conceive without medical intervention. I was told that it was impossible by doctors in the past.
    If I may add, last time I had a failed pregnancy I had a weird dream of aliens draining life out of my stomach before I even knew of been pregnant ( first time was unplanned and unexpected) this time I dreamt possible dreams with multiple kids alive and well. I hope and pray for healthy babies.

  • Roxanne

    I have my period on oct 20 it’s been 4 days and I’m still bleed normally my period is only 2 days

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Well, if you were using expired birth control, if you had sex around the time you were ovulating, you could be pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    2 day periods are not the norm unless you are on some sort of birth control. 4 days is more normal. If you continue bleeding, go and see your doctor.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Good luck with this pregnancy!

  • Noelle

    My ovulation days were Oct 6 to Oct 10. I took a pregnancy test on Oct 20 and it was negative. On Oct 24 it was positive. How do I know when I conceived?

  • Jenny

    I hear that you can take a ovulation test for a hpt and that it’s more sensitive and can tell you days before a hpt is that true

  • Brittany

    Ok so. My period (or what I think was my period) was on Sept 23rd(-28th) and my ovulation days were Oct 4th-10th. I was suppress to start my period Wends (22nd) but I didn’t I took a test amd it was negative. But still no period thus far. I had done light spotting couple days ago (due to sex it typically happens and then I kick start my period majority of the time like that. Could I have tested too early some how? I’ve been wrote out lately and lower back has been killing me, craving/eating/ drinking things I’d never easy because I don’t like them. And for pickles which I love I can’t stand them currently. I’m getting some headaches, eating more frequently throughout the day, and I’m randomly gagging (even though it’s all day just think it’s funny that it happens in the morning) so badly that I’ll throw up (early morning like 1am), and I’ve never had a gag reflex like that ever. My mom said my sister went through the same thing with all of her pregnancies. Could I be pregnant and just need to retest in the beginning of Nov? Really hoping that we are, we have been trying for quite some time now. :- thank you in advance for your response.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You only ovulate on a single day. You are fertile surrounding that time and if you had sex several times within that fertile time period any of them could be the one that was responsible for you getting pregnant. Without knowing how long your cycles are and when you ovulated, there is no way of telling what date you may have conceived.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Not necessarily. The two tests detect different hormones. HCG and LH are similar in molecular make up. If you were to wait until you missed your period, and used an ovulation test as a pregnancy test, you may see positive results. But testing extra early most likely will not give you positive results because it most likely will not be able to detect the minute amounts of hcg in early pregnancy. If you are trying to find out if you are pregnant before you miss your period, your best bet would be to use a pregnancy test because it is created to detect hcg specifically.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If your period was due on the 22nd, then testing now would be fine as you are definitely overdue. There is always a chance that you are pregnant, until your period arrives. If you keep testing into November and keep getting negative results, you might want to contact your doctor so he can do some tests to find out what is causing your symptoms.

  • help012

    Ok I took a pregnancy test yesterday the control line came up first then about 5 mins later the T line showed up but it was very faint. So I took two more today and the same thing happen. My period was on the 12th but it was very very light which is very unusual. Could I be pregnant or are these false positives???

  • kaneesha

    Okay I am a month late pt is negative I too one it the emergency room but didn’t do a blood test what should I do

  • Jewels

    So I had my last period on Sept. 29 2014 it has been 31 days and I’m on a 24 day cycle. One Sept. 15th I had light brown pink mucus when I wiped very small amount when I wiped and that lasted 3 days that was 1 week to the day I was suppose to start. Today is 10/30/2014 and still nothing all hpt are still negative as of 10/28/2014. I cant do blood work until next Tues. Has this ever happened to anyone and turned out they were prego? I have never missed a period before.. Any advice would be great, Thanks

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If your period started on the 12th, it could be that you are picking up on a VERY early pregnancy. As you posted this 5 days ago, did the tests get any darker?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Do you normally have regular cycles? Are you taking any hormonal birth control? Have you been under any extra stress, been exercising a lot more or been sick the the last month? All these things can cause a period to be late.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Have you taken any pregnancy tests since you posted this? The pink cervical mucus that you saw on the 15th could have been implantation bleeding. There have definitely been cases of pregnancy tests just not working. It’s not common but it does happen. Good luck on Tuesday. Hopefully you will get some answers.

  • Monica

    Ok im so confussed my last period was oct.5-7 2014 it was heavy 3 days but stoped fast me and my bf had sex then my ovulation days were 16 and so on…i was supposed to get my period nov.2nd so im 5 days late i took a test on tuesday it was negative but an hour later a slight light pink 2nd line came up but box said dont read results after 5 minutes. so i called my dr and they cant get me in i went to e.r today and dr did urine and blood test and said everything fine so i get home and take another test and its negative without that slight 2nd line this time..im sooo confused idk what to think but that im going thru menopause because im usually on time with my periods unless im pregnant so this is new to me

  • Jaila

    I had a 2day pierod and came off when to loo and there was snotty mucus and ting of pink init and also” I have smoggy blob and it’s got brown in help!! X

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It could be that you are testing too early to get accurate results with a pregnancy test. Test with first morning urine, before you drink anything. You want the pregnancy hormone to be as concentrated as possible when you test. If you had unprotected sex, the chances of you being pregnant are there. As for menopause, how old are you and is this the first time you are a little late with your period?

  • Stacy

    I experienced brown discharge for at least a week before my period was due. I believe I confused starting my period on a Monday with just more spotting because I do not recall seeing blood on any tampons it was mostly brown and not a lot at all. By the end of the day Wednesday I did not need to use a tampon anymore. This is very rare because my periods are always full blown for about 4 days. I missed one, maybe 2 ortho-tri-cyclen lo pills this month and then had unprotected sex. I did not double up on the pills the day after I forgot. I took a pregnancy test that Friday but it came back negative. I’ve had some nauseas and not as much of an appetite. I will take another test on Wednesday. I can’t imagine why it wouldn’t read positive. Any thoughts??

  • Shawna

    I’m trying to conceive my last period was 10/8/14 I haven’t got my period this month is it to early to test its only 3 days after my missed period any one with in put please reply

    My husband and I are TTC. I took an ovulation test on 10/22 that tested positive. We then had sex on 10/23 and 10/26. I was due for my period on 11/12 and still have not gotten my period which is abnormal for my cycle because my period usually occurs in the morning of the 28th day of my cycle. I have not had my period yet. When would be a good time to call my OB/GYN?

    Hello, I had my Mirena removed on Oct 30th of this yr. I spotted for a couple days then it stopped. On November 3rd I started what I thought was my period and it lasted till the 11/7. I’ve had sex about 3-4 times since the removal and they’ve all been about 3 days apart from each time. I bought an ovulation kit (test strips) and tested yesterday and today with both days positive….but I started bleeding yesterday (old blood, brown …sorry aboout the TMI). My husband and I are trying to conceive as soon as we can but Im so lost with all these mixed signals!? Help please!

    Maybe you aren’t pregnant and it is just your body’s reaction to the flux in hormones due to you missing taking your birth control.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    No, as soon as you have missed your period, you can take a pregnancy test.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Did you take a pregnancy test?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, it sounds like your body is trying to get back to hormonal balance. If you got a positive on the ovulation strips, I would say ignore the spotting you are having and have sex with your husband anyway, as soon as possible today.

  • Tiffany

    I totally agree with that! I hope my body will snap out of it and we can get a positive preg test soon….it’s just hard to plan the right timing until I’m back within normal hormonal balance. Thanks for the feedback Vickie!

  • tw

    I went to the doctor today and they said my pregnancy test was positive they took another test that read negative but then turned positive but the thing is my husband has had a Vicetomy for over 20 years is this possible..

  • celeste

    Hello. I had my Mirena removed in March. We have been having intercourse regularly, and my period was due this past Tuesday. I took a hpt on Monday and it was positive. Took another hpt on Tuesday and it also was positive. I went to urgent care also on Tuesday, took a test and it tested negative. Today is Saturday and still no period. Have been dizzy off and on for weeks! I hope your cycle gets on track soon!

  • Tiffany

    So, did they do a blood test at the urgent care? I’d stay positive and test in a week. Hopefully you will have another positive result! So if you dont mind me asking….you had your Mirena taken out in March, so its taken you this long to get “hopefully” pregnant? I’ve heard couple getting prgnant right away after the removal for the mirena and then I’ve heard it has taken coupe over 6 to 12 months to get pregnant! I know everyones different but that’s crazy! I pee’d on another ovulation test strip this morning and it was positive again and now I barley (very very light pink color) see anything when I wipe! I’m just as lost today but we will continue to try today! Well i wish you all good luck and please keep us updated!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Well, if you haven’t had sex with anyone else, and the tests keep coming back positive, then yes, it is possible. Vasectomy failures decades after the procedure are relatively rare but do happen.

  • Tiffany

    Okay, exactly one month ago me and my boyfriend had sex. I took a pregnancy test about two weeks afterward. It came back negative. But, I have a slight “growth” on the top part of my belly. (above belly button) I have been feeling sick but I haven’t actually threw up until today. I did have my period on the 1st of November and i don’t remember when I got off. I have no idea what to think or do..

    It sounds like something other than pregnancy is happening for you. You might want to schedule a visit with your doctor.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You might want to visit your doctor. If the tests keep coming back negative, something hormonal could be going on. Do you have PCOS? That can cause periods to be late or totally missing?

    I guess it really depends on how you feel about having a baby. Ultimately, you will need to do some searching within yourself and do what is right to you. If keeping the baby is part of the plan, I would highly suggest that you contact your doctor.

    Hello, I was suppose to get my period between the 16th and the 18th. I am now a week late. I know for a fact that I ovulated between the 9th and the 10th. I have slightly sore nipples and an occasional nausea over the last 3 days. Yesterday I went to the doctor and they did a blood test nd it came back negative.can implantation take longer than 10 days, is it possible for the blood test to be wrong, and could I still be pregnant? If so should I retest and when?

  • nia

    I need help… Okay today is the 26 and the month is almost over can I still have a period… Keep in mind my period last for 5 days

  • queen32

    Morning , well starting this conversation off , this is my first time here , usually I’m 28 days . Been a while since , I jumped around each month. About a week and a half ago . I started to experience head ache , dizziness , nausea without vomiting , tired , sleepy , just this Friday at work . The food was heating up , which is Mac & cheese. Since being their never , had a issue far as the smell . This time i was smelled that omg . I felt to vomit but didn’t . We also had a gathering every one cooked ; while eating for some reason I could not finish. Then threw it away drank some spirte, in order to rid the nasty taste . Moving along no period yet , Friday before leaving ,definitely feeling sick . My body was aching head ache dizzy, barley made it home . Usually I love walking , I ended up on the bus to reach close to home. Ovulation started on the 6 to the 12 . Recently I did feel cramping , betwwen ovulating and now. As of right now I don’t feel like myself, maybe its in my head like a couple of times before, only lead to disappointment. When I calculated my period . In return it gave me the 25, but I recalculated it I then received the 29 . I’m lost I will wait I guess , don’t want to get excited . I don’t know , in my closet I have a pregnancy testing kit , I just refuse to test only to see no I am not. Been trying for a longgggggggg time .

    I have polycystic ovarian syndrome. I went to my reproductive end specialist on 10/24 and was told blood work showed ovulation this month later that day I saw implantation bleeding. I missed my period on 10/27 took a test on 10/28 actually I took two test at the same time that morning and got two positives, later that night I took 3 tests all were negative. I took a clear blue the next morning it too was negative. Am I testing too early or just not pregnant?

  • Tabitha

    I’m late di

  • Amanda

    Okay, so tomorrow makes me 2 weeks late for my period. I’ve had a little blood the first week late of my period on and off for about 3-4 days. I Feel sick all the time, I pee a lot, I’ve gotten a little sick sometimes, I’m tired all the time, but I’ve also taken 3 pregnancy test and all have been negative. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow. I don’t know if I’m over reacting :/

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you don’t get your period, there is always a chance that you are pregnant. If all the tests keep coming back negative, there may be another reason for the missing period. Implantation can take longer than 10 days. 10 days is just an average.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Yes, you can still have a period.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Your period should have arrived or you must have given in and taken that pregnancy test :D What were your results?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Typically, if you get a positive result, the test is picking up hcg. If you didn’t get any more positive results, you could have had an early miscarriage.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Definitely sounds like something is going on. Hopefully the doctor visit helped sort things out for you.

  • http://www.empowernetwork.com/almostasecret?id=dominiquemakesmoney daretodream m

    Thanks for replying i got two more positives on 12-2-14 today i go to the doc to confirm and check my beta

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Congratulations! I have my fingers crossed for high numbers on you beta!

  • http://www.empowernetwork.com/almostasecret?id=dominiquemakesmoney daretodream m

    I am taking several pregnancy test and the lines are getting darker is that an indication that my hcg levels are rising?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Usually, that is exactly what it means. This only a good indication early on in pregnancy though. At some point, the test won’t have anymore ability to get any darker.

  • anxiousmum

    Hi lovely ladies! So I am feeling really anxious at the moment…my last period started on the 25th of October& now I am 9 days late for my next period..my partner and I are trying for our second child. I took a hpt this morning and could faintly see a very very very faint second line..I couldn’t help but take another at lunchtime and it was definitely negative. I didn’t want to get my hopes up but am definitely feeling tender boobs, nausea& tiredness for the past week. My periods have been irregular up until about 6months ago when they have been running like clockwork…is it possible to purely be a case that they have gone back to being irregular?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Most likely you aren’t pregnant if you didn’t have sex after your period. If the headache doesn’t go away, you really need to see a doctor about it.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you saw a faint positive, it could be that the hcg levels are very low right now. Try again tomorrow with your first morning urine and see if you can replicate your positive test, but hopefully this time it won’t be so faint.

  • alize

    im confused, my first day of my last period was on November 19th,which was very light compared to others months. I went to the ER because I wasn’t feeling good, they did a blood test and it came back positive for pregnancy and the doctor said I was about two weeks pregnant. next day I took a urine test and came back positive as well, but ive read that this is just the ovulating stage of it.what does that mean? I might just be in denial, I do want this baby but with my other pregnancies I found when I was more than 6 weeks. my question is, am i pregnant? or am I not gonna know for sure till after two more weeks? please help me understand all this

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If all the tests are coming back saying you are pregnant, then I would guess that you are. It could be that your last period wasn’t actually a period but rather early pregnancy bleeding. Take a pregnancy test again in two week’s time. If you are truly pregnant, you should get an immediate positive result. If you start bleeding again when your period is scheduled to arrive, you might want to get the doctor to check you over to make sure everything is okay.

  • alize

    Thank you very much for your reply. im just beyond excited but at the same time don’t want to get my hopes up. this would be my third child after 5 years. I will do that after the week of my scheduled period that I should supposedly be getting this month

  • anxiousmum

    I tried a different hpt& no second line this morning. Just a shadow as to where the line would be. :-( :-( :-(

  • sammy

    Ladies, I’ve been on the depo injection for 9months my last being on 25th July (20wks ago) for the past week I’ve been really tired, thirsty and occasionally my boobs will throb. I’ve not had a period in 6 years due to being on minipill prior to injection. I took a test yesterday morning to find it was negative, could it be too early to test or could it be my hormones balancing? Any suggestions? Thanks sammy

  • http://www.empowernetwork.com/almostasecret?id=dominiquemakesmoney daretodream m

    Hey just wanted to send you some good news about my betas on 11/2/2014 it was 27.2 on 11/42015 it was 99.3 so I hope and pray everything continues to go well, thanks for keeping your fingers crossed for me. Also, I was going to ask you do you think my doctor should want to continue to monitor my beta, his nurse said at this point he is not concerned and everything is progressing and we are having an ultrasound on 12/18…..my beta numbers seem a bit low for 5-6 weeks???

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    That is really hard to say what is going on. If you haven’t had a period, then the chances of getting pregnant aren’t very likely. You might want to go to the doctor and get fully checked out to make sure everything is okay. If you aren’t pregnant, you might want to consider taking a fertility supplement like FertilAid to help balance your hormones and start your cycle back up.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    My guess is that you will see a big jump in the number at the next beta check. For 5 weeks, the number you listed is still in the range. It could be that the egg implanted later that you expected meaning that the hcg numbers will be a little lower than expected.

  • Kayleen B.

    Hello ladies, I am on ortho tri cyclin low. I was very sick in Oct so I was on antibiotics for 2 weeks. I had a cycle in starting around Nov 10th, it was very light more spotty. Now it is Dec 11 and I am a week and a half late for my period. I have taken 3 hpt and all negative. Not sure if it’s just too soon and levels aren’t high enough to show positive and I am pregnant or not. Thanks :)

  • Brit

    Looking for some help! (Keep in mind it is now December 11) I had been taking bc for 5 years. Stopped sept 3. Since then I had a period sept 6 and oct 26 (my cycle has always been irregular) I never got a period in nov. For 3 weeks now (since November 21) I’ve had nipple tenderness with very painful breasts. Also during that time I experiemced mild cramping off and on. 4 days ago I noticed bleeding which I thought was an early period 5 days past ovulation, which to me felt odd, I had a sharp cramp/pulling pain on the left side that lasted about 2 hours. It started first day heavy bleed then tapered off to some spotting off an on. It is now day #4 and I noticed what looked like orange-yellow spotting that then went to a brownish-red. I’ve never had a “period” bleed in this pattern. My breasts are still very tender and noticed blue veins showing in both when I take bra off. I have read much about implantation bleeding but curious if it could go away and start in my pattern. I’ve had a bit of frequent urination but not to bothersome. Could I be pregnant? If so is it to early to test? Could I have been pregnant since I first started the symptoms? Please help.

  • mori1223

  • Vitoriar

    I had intercourse days before ovulation and the day estimated for my egg to release is it normal for me to have a period 5 days early please help. I’m so worried and confused.

  • Louise

    Hi I need help fast!!
    My son is 9 months old, 11 weeks ago me and my partner (now ex partner) had unprotected sex since I’ve seen my periods as normal but these past few days I feel like I’m pregnant ,Today I took a pregnancy test and it’s saying negative !! I don’t want another baby, it feels like there’s a baby inside me! do you think that the test was more accurate beings as I haven’t had sex since?

  • GiaMiaMills

    My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex about a week and a half ago two days before I was suppose to have my period. When I went to the bathroom about a half and hour after intercourse I saw some bleeding, which was very light. My period hasn’t come on, so two days ago I took a test which came back negative. I’m planning on taking another one in another week and a half. Then going to the doctor if I receive a negative one again. I stopped taking birth control about 6 months ago. And I have a condition in which I bleed very heavy for 8-10 days when on my period, so I was given the birth control for that. I have been having pains in my stomach, and at times it feels as if my period is on but it just clear discharge. I have had high stress levels as well. I’m very confused, I don’t mind being pregnant I just would like to know if I am. My boyfriend says it’s stressed, and since I haven’t had intercourse in so long it threw my period off. My mother says the same…. My mother working in a hospital and my boyfriend finishing his degree in medicine I want to listen to them. But living 22 years I think I know my body. I believe I truly am….. Pregnant that is. Please help.

  • Arsy

    Hi, I am new to this blog. I am trying to conceive for past six years and underwent infertility treatment in 2009, 10 and 13 but no success. I had my last periods on 3/11/2014. My periods were 35-40 days cycle(and I am polycystic) which are quite regular from last three months app 33 days. Now, it has been 11 days since I missed my periods. I had a little spotting 4/12, 9/12(light pink) and 13/12(night,red) when I wiped. I have on and off cramps as if my flow will start. I am having a lot of slippery transparent discharge. I did four hpts and all came out negative. Now today my boobs become sore and I am not able to touch them. I visted GP last week an she refused to do blood test saying that these days HPTS are very accurate. Just want to check with other ladies if they had same symptoms (specially the blood on 13/12) with negative HPTs and later on they found BFP. It is so frustrating to see negative when you feel you are pregnant. :(

  • momof3

    Hello, I am pregnant but I don’t know how far along I am. I have had irregular periods for over two years. I had some bleeding the first week of October 2014, then I spotted for maybe 2 days on October 24, 2014. Still waiting for my dr appointment. Just curious

  • hopefulern

    I am consistent each month with my cycle (latest day 32) and am currently on day 43 without a period and with all negative pregnancy tests to date. Last test (blood test) done at 5 weeks. Should I give up hope or is there still a chance that I am pregnant? My RE wants me to take provera to start my period, but I feel like waiting awhile longer to see if I get a positive hpt. I have no reason why I am so late, never missed a period before…ever! Thoughts…..

  • scaredyoungwoman

    Hi, my last period was around 3/4 weeks ago… I have been feeling sick, my boobs are sore, headaches, keep going dizzy and a lot of tiredness. Could I be pregnant?

  • scaredyoungwoman

    I have also had unprotective sex a couple of days after my last period?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, due to the fact you were spotting, it means that the birth control wasn’t working as well as it should have been. http://www.walgreens.com/topic/faqhome/questionandanswer.jsp?questionTierId=600006&faqId=600022 Due to your illness, your cycles could be off because of that as well. There is no way to really tell so if you had unprotected sex during the month, you could be pregnant because the birth control might have not been working as well as it should have been. You might want to contact your doctor if you are concerned.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You should probably want to take a pregnancy test to see if that shows up positive as you have been feeling the symptoms for several weeks. The cramp and pulling feeling you felt most likely wouldn’t have been due to implantation. It sounds more like ovulation pain. Are you positive you ovulated 5 days prior to that?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you ovulated on the 27th, your period should be almost due now (if you have a regular 28 day cycle). You could probably test now.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Did you have a period? It could have been implantation bleeding. If the period didn’t come on fully, you could probably take a pregnancy test right now.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you are feeling pregnant, you might want to get the doctor to give you a blood test just to make sure. Pregnancy tests stop giving a positive result sometimes when the pregnancy hormone way over the threshold of what it detects.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Well stress can cause the delay in your period. Not having sex won’t throw off your period though as your boyfriend suggests. The only way to know for sure is to wait and keep testing. Sounds like you have a good plan for timing your testing.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Sorry you are not getting help from your doctor :( I’d say keep testing to see if perhaps your dates are a bit off. Definitely sounds like you have a hormonal imbalance (which would be typical with pcos) occurring due to all the spotting if you aren’t pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, due to your irregular cycles, no way I can estimate for you. You will have to wait for that doctor appointment and an ultrasound to help you figure it out.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you have an RE then I would follow what he suggests. But before you do, you could ask him for one more blood test just to make sure.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, based on your chosen username on your post, pregnancy is a possibility if you had unprotected sex. Depending on how long your cycles typically are, you might be able to take a pregnancy soon to find out.

  • scaredyoungwoman

    Thanks, would you possibly know when I will able to to take a pregnancy test for a proper result?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You can typically take a pregnancy test about 2 or 3 days before your period is due. Of course, the closer you are to the day your period is supposed to arrive the better.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    What were the results of the pregnancy test?

    I recently found out that I was pregnant and I am around 4-5 weeks pregnant, I’m a concerned for my baby’s health because I have started bleeding dark red blood with bits of black in. I don’t think this is normal? Are you able to advise me on this? Thank you x

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If it was implantation bleeding you should be able to test now to find out if you are pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I would think you should be able to get a positive result by now.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It’s never to early to get an appointment for the doctor. You could always call and ask their opinion as to the timing of the visit.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Your timing was right so did you test?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It could have been early and you drank too much fluid before you tested the second time. Have you tested again since that point?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You really need to address this with your doctor. Many women have early pregnancy bleeding and go on to have a successful pregnancy.

  • Pete

    I took one pregnancy test the first time and it said positive but the first one was cheaper than the two and third and then I took two more and they said I wasn’t but the third one was already a negative sign so I’m lost which one would you go by?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Were you testing at the same time of day with the same amount of liquid consumption? If you are very early in your pregnancy, it could be that you are diluting the pregnancy hormone by drinking fluids.

  • Tammy

    Hello My husband and I have been trying for longer than a year! I am 4 days late, I’ve never been late in my life. I’ve taken 2 tests both negative. Not sure what to do! Is it to early to test?

    I had to be on my period the 19th of December on the 24th I took a home pregnancy test and the top pink line spear 10 min later a light pink line pop out but I bearly could see it. I been having cramps with no bleeding. My Breasts hurts and I have diarrhea could I be pregnant?

  • Xenogears25

    I did go in today and got my tests done and according to my hcg level i am 3 weeks. I have my first OB in February. But i am concerned that i am having pains on my ovaries. Is this normal they are sharp pains and also cramp like menstrual pains. Ty vikie for you responses

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    That is most definitely a positive pregnancy test! I’d try another one in the morning and I bet you will get a darker line a bit earlier than this one. Congratulations!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you are late, it’s not too early to test. But having said that, if implantation happened later than it should have, it can take a bit longer for the pregnancy test to show up as a positive.

  • Rebecca Martinez H

    Thank you…!!!! Now how many weeks will that be of pregnancy?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It would be about 3 weeks pregnant :)

  • bris619

    Hi. I’m very confused. I had a d and c 6 weeks ago and since a week after that we have been trying every other day to conceive. About a week ago I was feeling a bit off so I took a test it showed faint positive at about 5 mins later so I took 2 more within a 2 day span all faint now they are negative. I was thinking a chemical preg but haven’t started bleeding and still have symptoms and its not left over hormones from the mc because my Dr did a preg test at 2 weeks after and it was neg. Do you think its possible that I’m pregnant?

  • madeeha

    My last periods came on 1-12-2014 … it was a normal flow for three days … now its been 4 days my periods havent came yet … I took the pregnancy strip test and It was positive at home … can I be really pregnant or I should wait for sometime …. ?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Do you know when you ovulated? What time of day are you taking the tests? Are they all at the same time of day with limited fluid intake before you take them? It could be that you are very early in your pregnancy and the hcg isn’t built up to a large enough level yet to reliably show up on a pregnancy test every time you test.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Yes you could be pregnant. I’d wait a day and take another test right when you wake up in the morning just to confirm the results.

  • Laura

    Hi, I’m hoping somebody will be able to help me, I’m very confused. My last period was the end of Nov, lasting 6 days (normal) I had intercourse on the 18th Dec. I’ve not yet had another period, although I have been feeling nauseous on and off, emotional, and the last 3 days have had period like cramping although there has been nothing there on the tissue after wiping, slight constipation also, and tender breasts. I took a test today but it was negative, have I taken the test too early? Should I wait until the end of the week until it’s been around 3 weeks after intercourse?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    When is your period supposed to arrive?

  • Beckyb

    Hi, my last period was roughly 8th dec. I think I ovulated over xmas as I had pain then. Not really following my cycle as we are only talking about tryng for another. Anyway my cycles r normally varied from 25-26 days. I did a test yesterday morning was negative. Last night I had some pinky mucus and a slight bit this morning. Could this possibly be implantation. I think I’m on day 30 now, ovulated roughly around day 16. How soon after implantation can I test.?

  • Elsa

    I always have irregular periods, I got my period on November 26th didn’t get it in December and today Janurary 6th I took a digital pregnancy test and at first the 1-2 weeks started flashing and then it stopped and came the not pregnant. What does this mean?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Actually, it sounds more like your period starting. Did you take another test? You usually ovulate 14 days before your period arrives and implantation usually happens at 8 to 10 days after ovulation.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Sorry, but I’m not sure. I don’t know how the digital pregnancy tests work. You might want to call the help line for the brand of pregnancy test you are using.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Well, if she had unprotected sex, then the possibility is there. Having said that, a hcg level of 2 is technically not pregnant. With PCOS ovulation is typically an issue so are you even sure she ovulated? You need ovulation and timing sex correctly for pregnancy to occur.

    Hi Vickie.B

    Well here goes my period was December 10-14 I’ve had sex on the 15th 18th 21st 28th 31st my cycles are normal 28 days today is January 8th my back was lightly sore and pulling breasts a little soft but swollen I did have migraines I feel nausea not so bad but I always think its because i havent ate but I feel the same after eating its not heavy nausea its endurable I been tired longer and sleep in longer this week and last week. My partner did test his sperm and doctor said hes healthy and has high sperm count. I’ve been told I’ve been mean but I guess hes just annoying I really dont know it could be normal moods because I really dont know if its even possible to have early signs before you missed your period. I was always wet and sexually in a mood the middle till the ending ending December during sex …I got wet really easy…after it all its like im kind of back normal not being so wet …..period is this week should be…may I have your respond on what you think could be?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I had sex on the 26th of December I took a pill with in 48hrs, on the 30 of the same month I had sex again but this time took the pill the next day.then again on 2nd of January I had sex again but this time I did not take the pill, 7days later, I took a pregnancy text and it was positive. I’m confused whether I got pregnant from the earlier sex or the last time.

    Hi…. My bf and I had sex on Christmas. My cycle was due Jan 3. The past week I’ve had slight cramping, slight nausea, lost appetite, and my boobs are slightly tender but no period. I took a test this morning and it was negative. Is it too early to test?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, it is impossible to say when you got pregnant. If you have normal periods, then the date when you were supposed to start your period would be helpful. Typically, ovulation and conception occur about 14 days before your period is due.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    When is your period due? You will only get an accurate result if you take a pregnancy test 3 or 4 days before your period is due.

  • Abby

    I ovulated about 14-15 days ago. My husband and I also had unprotected sex on the day I ovulated. I am now 2 days late and feeling crampy, bloated and constipated. I’ve taken several pregnancy tests. About 4 have come up very very faintly positive. One had a slightly more distinct line, but I’ve also had 2 negatives. Should I wait to take another test? Confused and anxious about what I should do.

  • Aaanonymous

    We are TTC, I am 12dpo… Had light spotting and brown discharge this morning. All HPT have been negative. I’m supposed to start my period in 2 days. Hadn’t had any symptoms until today, after spotting I’ve been very nauseated and feverish. Hopeful???

  • Bubbles

    Hey i am new to all this so not too sure what is going on. I have had troubles with contraception and have been taken off the pill, bar, depo provera etc by my doctor. Since i have been taken off everything, my cycle has been an efficient 28 days, very heavy and painful. Have had sex with my bf a lot but use condoms religiously. My last period was 3rd December til 8th or 9th December very heavy and painful. After that i have been having headaches, fatigue, dizziness to the point where i have to sit down, loss of appetite, i have been very emotional, nauseous, tender breasts and itchy nipples, very tired, bloated, i have had a metalic taste in my mouth and can smell things in my normal everyday life that never used to make me gag but now do, and a very thick, white, odorless discharge kind of like curd or mayonaise. I was supposed to have my period 12 days ago. In the last 3 days instead of the heavy flow i am used too i had a pinkish/ brown discharge that lasted 2 days and for the last day a brown- red light flow of blood, that stops and starts. I have had a hpt 3 days after my missed period, another at 1 week and another today that are all negative. My next port of call is to go to the doctor but was just wondering if anyone else has been in the same position?
    Cheers, Bubbles

  • Abby

    I’ve been in kind of the same boat with a bunch of symptoms but negative hpts. Do you know when you ovulated? I’ve heard sometimes it takes up to 20 some days post ovulation for pregnancy tests to even detect the hormone. Good luck!

  • Bubbles

    Thanks for the reply :) gives me an idea of when to test again :) Good Luck to you too!! :)

  • Angela

    I am 24 days late. Had my 8th hpt last Sunday and it came back negative again. I don’t know what’s happening. We did the deed last Dec6, my last period is Nov20. It’s supposed to come around Dec20 onwards but until now, no signs of period. I only have mild cramps today. Can somebody help me? No other signs of pregnancy though but I’ve been stressing out because of this.

  • Rosemarie

    I’m 41 days since my last lmp and today I got a very faint line you can barley see it. I know I’m pregnant, I’m super tired, sore boobs and some cramping, but I don’t know why it’s taking so long to show up. All this is doing is driving me crazy.. lol

  • Abby

    Well I got what i believe to be my period. I’m pretty sure I had a bio chemical pregnancy which is an early miscarriage. Have all the signs. Got 4 post tests then as the days went by the test lounge for fainter and fainter. Normally only happens twice and in25% of women. Prayers for all of you! Don’t get discouraged! Although this wasn’t the result I was hoping for its better knowing a definite answer instead of being on the fence of either being pregnant or not. Seriously ladies good luck! Just remember you have 12 chances to get pregnant a year if not more….. If’ it didn’t happen this month there’s always next month!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It really depends on when you are testing. If you stick with testing first thing in the morning before you have drank any liquid, you will get your most concentrated urine and the greatest possibility of a positive result if you are pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    The spotting you had could be implantation bleeding. If that is the case, you might not get a positive result on a test for a couple of days after your period is due if you are pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You might want to go and see your doctor. The heavy painful periods could be a sign of endometriosis. Endometriosis can really mess with your hormones so it can cause the types of symptoms you are experiencing. Until you get your period, there is always the chance of being pregnant but if you have been using condoms, the chance of pregnancy is pretty low.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, if all the tests are negative, you might want to talk to your doctor about the fact that your period has gone missing.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, I’m not really seeing a line on this test :( Having said that, it could be you are one of the women for whom pregnancy tests just don’t work for some reason. If you have been normally regular, maybe a visit with your doctor is in order to see if they can determine if you are pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I’m sorry to hear this Abby :( You have a great outlook for someone who’s had a loss. Good luck in your upcoming cycles!

  • basilia

    Ok so I have a question and I feel like I am going insane right now.. My LMP was on nov 23 2014… the very end of December maybe a week before the 1st of January I got what I thought was my period instead it ended up being just brown spotting and it only lasted 3 days and it was only if I wiped… I took a HPT and it came back negative :( im so confused… I am moodier then ever and tired all the time and feel sick to my stomach a whole bunch.. But my boobs don’t hurt? ugh someone help please

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, it sounds like you should be talking to your doctor about this. Something is off – yes, I know you know that :D Until you get tested by your doctor, there is no way of know what it is. You could be pregnant, or you could have some other issue going on.

  • Abby

    Thank you!

  • Rosemarie

    Hello, So I got 3 faint positive pregnancy tests, One on the morning of the 12 and one on the morning of the 13th, then I started bleeding on the 13th at around 7pm.. only slightly but it was a bright red.. then it stopped, so I woke up this morning and again i was dripping bright red blood.. Im not cramping or have no back aches, but i am feeling a bit nauseous, dizzy and feel like a fever is coming on…

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you continue bleeding you will need to go see a doctor to see what is happening. Sometimes bleeding is normal in early pregnancy but other times it can be a sign of an early miscarriage. Hopefully it is just the prior. Good Luck.

  • svach059

    It says don’t believe you can test positive before expected AF, however I tested postive 4 days before my expected AF (using a home pregnancy test) and the lines progressively got darker leadning up to my expected AF. I know that many women do not test positive this early, but thats not to say you can’t, as I certainly did. And as my husband and I was actively TTC, my numbers are spot on as everything was inputted into my calender. Just thought I would share :)

    I had my period the exact same days but I only had sex the 18th. But experiencing the same symptoms….

  • BritAndJWantAGirl

    Hi Vickie, ok so my last period was right before Thanksgiving and still today I’ve not gotten it. My breasts hurt off and on, mild cramping, nausea, same ole same ole. I had a urine test done at the hospital about a month ago and the result was neg. Is there any chance that I may really be pregnant?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Congratulations! Here’s to a happy, healthy 9 months for you and your growing family!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    A pregnancy test should work for you now if you are pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I’d think that would be too early for an ultrasound to show anything. You should test again to see if the lines are darker and make another appointment with your doctor in about 2 weeks time. Something might show up on the ultrasound at that point.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Well, taking another test might be in order. Until you get your period, the possibility is there, but a visit with your doctor might be in order. Lack of period can also be a sign of a hormonal imbalance.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You should be able to take one now if you haven’t already.

  • kellyc

    Hi. I had my lmp 1/1. I believe I ovulated 1/12. Had what I think was ib yesterday and today. Can I test tomorrow morning? ?

  • LAKSHMI SUJTAHA

    SAME PROBLEM MAM,BUT ONE DOUBT IS IT POSSIBLe TO CONFORM PREGNANCY WITH IN 29 DAYS

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You can test tomorrow, but chances are the hcg won’t be high enough to give you a positive result. If you have a normal 28 day cycle, your period would be due on 1/28. The earliest I would test would be on 1/24

  • Danielle

    So I have a quick question. I know we shouldn’t look at the results after the time limit. However, I have taken 3 tests that are neg at first, and every one of them end up a positive reading after the allotted time frame….Not sure what to think.

  • erin

    Hi, my last period was dec 12. It has now been 41 days sense my last period. I took a hpt this morning it was neg. Still no period. I’m having lower abdominal cramping and tender breast. My period should’ve started Jan 18, and hasn’t should I wait another week and retest?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It could be that you are testing very early and the levels aren’t quite what they need to be. If you wait a day or two and test with first morning urine, you should see the results show up in the right amount of time.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    That would be a good idea. If it is still negative and no period has arrived, you might want to go and visit your doctor.

  • pearl

    hi on the 21/01/15 I’ve done a hpt mean while was spotting and the result became positive and was so shocked, and I became worried and on the 27/01/2015 I’ve done another hpt and I’m still spotting the result is still positive and it sound so strange, I want to know how possible true?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You should probably let your doctor know about what is going on. It’s probably nothing, but your doctor can check you out to make sure everything is progressing as it should.

  • B

    I can see the line is very faint but it’s there.

  • emilymdr

    My period has changed from being irregular to every 28 days the last few months. We’ve been TTC with no luck. This month I was cramping for a week during ovulation, not painful bit more uncomfortable. This morn I had very light pink discharge for an hour. My period isn’t due till the 3rd. Any advice? Thank you!

  • Angel

    Me and my boyfriend had sex on December 31, more than once. I had some spotting a few days later. I am having some pregnancy symptoms, like nausea, dizziness, and sore breast. I was suppose to start on jan 13 and didn’t. I took like 5 hpt and all came out negative. So my question is what are the odds the test were wrong

  • Alicia

    My husband and I had sex the day before I was to ovulate and we had sex the day after. Ever since then I’ve had dull cramping, very moody and crying and 3 days ago my breasts started to get very sore. This has been since the 20th of jan. My period is suppose to come on Monday the 2nd. I took a test this morning that said negative. I’m not sure what to think. Please advise

  • Berry A

    My periods were irregular for quite a few years. PCOS. Since being on metformin my periods are here like clockwork! Had intercourse on dec 25. Period came about 4 days after. Lasted 4 days. Had intercourse again on 17 during ovulation I’m assuming. Period isn’t here yet. Besides deep reddish/brownish spotting on about the 23rd. Period is usually here by 26th. Spotting happened once. Feeling nauseous and crampy. Sex was unprotected. Took test 4 days ago negative. What are the odds?

  • vinnie

    Hey Vicki,
    I had my monthly, Dec 30-Jan 2, ovulation jan 10-16, had sex almost every second day, my monthly came 6 days early, could i be pregnant?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Maybe it was implantation bleeding. As today is the 3rd, did you take a pregnancy test?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Until you get your period, it is possible that the tests were wrong. You might want to go and see your doctor if you are concerned.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Did your period eventually arrive or a pregnancy test turn positive?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Until your period arrives, there is always a chance. Did you take another test yet?

  • vinnie

    Vickie

    So what do u think?

  • Erica Hdz

    well im confused if im pregnant or not. My last period was on january 03-08 (30dy cycle), Im never irregular or late unless im pregnant. Since i didnt get my period and still havent as of today, I took a pt (clear blue digital) on the 2nd mid morning and it showed PREGNANT. To be sure I took another pt clear blue digitital where it shows how many weeks or so, but this time it said NOT PREGNANT. Should I wait another week or so before retesting if no period yet?

  • Joy land

  • Joy land

  • Melanie

    Hi, I’m very confusing now. I think I’ve implanatation bleeding before my regular cycle 3 days earlier. The implanatation bleeding was last for 1 day. I checked by pregnancy test kit for twice on day 7 and day 14 after I missed my period, but both shown negative result. I notice I’m very tired even I’ve enough sleep, lower leg sores most day, it is very unusual signs which I do not have previously. Could you pls advise? This.

  • cookie

    I’m two days late and took a pregnancy test nd it was postive could this be wrong

  • Melanie

    Hi Vikie,

    To add some additional points. My regular menstrual cycle day is 27. My last menstrual was on 27 Dec. I and my hubby had sex on 11 Jan(during ovulation days). The day after my face immediately appeared some acnes. On 18 & 20 Jan it appears a drop of tan color stain in my panties. On 21 Jan, I thought my period came early, it starts appearing a little bit of pinky and brown color discharge from my vagina, after that was red color discharge but it was not continuous, not heavy and no clot. Correction: it was last for 2 days. 1st day the flow is like 3rd days of menses and 2nd day like 4th day of menses.

    After reading some article and found this kind of symptom is called “implanatation bleeding”. If based on 27 day of cycle, my menses should come on 23 Jan but till now is still not come. It has passed 14 days already. But I’ve checked by pregnancy test kit twice, it does not show positive result. Should I wait till if my next menstrual cycle not come and test again? Hope to hearing from your advice. Thanks in advance.:)

  • Valisha Warren

    Please Help!!! My last period came on 12/24/14-12/31/14 .. I then had to have surgery on 1/16/15 to have my gallbladder removed which also resulted in them finding scare tissue that connected my intestine too my gallbladder. Ok so on 1/25/15 I took a ovulation test and it looked like a shadow of a second line was appearing so I just waited till 1/27/15 and took another ovulation test now this one had two dark lines and i felt all this pressure as if my period was going to come on.. So my husband and I had sex the 27-28 skipped the 29 had sex the 30-31.. After all that No Period Now I’m confused because its now 2/9/15 my nipples are kind of sore I keep getting nausea I’ve been gagging and spitting up I feel this pressure as if I have to pee but when I do its a little bit . I’ve taken 3 test as of today all Negative Plse Help Me Understand This Is My First Missed Period Im Always On Time For My Monthly I Get The Same Feeling Every time Its About Too Come

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Not likely.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    These are not typical pregnancy symptoms so you really need to go and see a doctor to find out what is going on.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It could be. Did your period arrive?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You can wait until your period is due again to test, or wait a week and try again. If it stays negative and your period doesn’t arrive, you should go and talk to your doctor.

  • Valisha Warren

    Vickie B. Could you help me out please I’ve already posted my situation yesterday.. Thanks

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, I can’t really help you. As you had major surgery, that could have really thrown your cycle off this month. Regarding the scar tissue, is that endometriosis or was that something created by a previous surgery you had?
    Though if you were ovulating when you were having sex, a positive pregnancy test wouldn’t show a positive result until around the 12th of February. Maybe you are testing too early.

  • Joann

    Hello all, I have been reading these and they are some what helpful, thank you all for sharing. I am very confused as to if I am pregnant or not. My periods have always been the same time every month until I started and stopped BC(birth control). Once I got off BC my period was all over the place until three/four months ago now they are finally back to normal. I have 27/28 day cycles. My last period was Jan.9th-13th I used an OPK from the 19th-24th I was unsure if I even ovulated that month because the lines on the test were not super dark. My husband and I had sex around the 19th, on the 22nd(23rd because it was after 12 midnight) and on the 24th. I did not think much on it after that until my breast were really sore to the touch and felt very heavy, my stomach was crampy a little, and I had to go to the bathroom frequently. I am always feeling sick to my stomach so I did not think twice about that and my back has been bothering me lately. The breast tenderness has stopped but I was supposed to start my period Feb. 5 or 6th but nothing. I have taken four hpt in the course of the last week and all are negative. I think I saw a faint line on a walmart brand equate test but not sure if it was just my mind playing tricks on me. I tested last night and still negative, don’t know if I am pregnant or something is wrong. I have used equate, clear blue, and the equate version of first response and still nothing. I have an appointment set for next week with my doctor but if I ovulated around the time I think I did we wont be able to see any heartbeat yet. I feel like I could really be pregnant this time, I have never been more than a day late ever in the history of my cycles. I am so confused.

  • Joann

    please help. A little advise would go a long way. I’ve prayed on it, I am just a little nervous. This would be my first child but second pregnancy. A year ago (right around this time.) I found out I was pregnant but it was a chemical pregnancy. It was heart breaking and I told my husband in a cute way for valentines day so I just want to make sure I catch it early and do everything I can to avoid another miscarriage. Thanks!

  • Joann

    sorry last thing. This week I am tired, some what moody, having to go to the bathroom every five minutes, back aches, boobs feel heavy but not sore, and I feel like I’ve gained weight (look it too) :-/

  • Linna

    hi, I had my last period on 10th November last year and took a pregnancy test early December and it showed negative. i sometimes miss my period for just a month but now its getting to almost 3 months and its freaking me out. am gaining weight and my breast has become heavy. could i be pregnant?

  • jlynn02

    Hi I have had a faint positive pregnancy test so I made a doctor’s appointment and they did a urine and blood test both came out negative. I have not had my period I had some spotting a week before my period was do to come. I should be 4weeks today if I’m truly pregnant . I’m very confused rather I’m pregnant or not? I have swollen and tender breast, feeling very teird, can’t eat very well and also nauseated through out my day. I have two kids and with both of those pregnancy I never had to guess. However this is with another partner. So am I or not?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You timed everything well for you getting pregnant. Have you been taking the tests with your first morning urine? That could make a difference.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    When is your period due? You can typically test about 4 days before that time with the pregnancy tests you get in the drugstore. If you get a positive test, make an appointment with your doctor so you can be monitored as soon as possible if you are concerned about another miscarriage.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If the tests are coming back negative, you are probably not pregnant. You might want to talk to your doctor about the symptoms you are having so you can get checked out to make sure everything is okay.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It could be that you caught the pregnancy very early on and that by the time you went to see the doctor, you had had your coffee or other liquid which diluted your urine. Sometimes it takes a bit longer for the blood tests to pick up on a pregnancy because they may have a higher level of hcg that they consider a positive result. Wait a couple of day and take another test. If it is still positive, make another doctor’s appointment.

  • jlynn02

    yes I had intake to 16 ounces of water before they did that urine pregnancy testit’s now been a few days sense and I haven’t started my period what she was supposed to start today I did do another pregnancy test and it was positive I do have a doctors appointment Thursday fingers crossed

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

  • Emily

    Took two HPT both says positive ☺ the only pregnancy symptoms i have is missed period . Cramps that feel like i. bout to come on . last period was 1-9-15 missed period was 2-6-15 .. whats going on?

  • Joann

    I have taken most of them in the morning with the exception of a couple. Two of the many test I have taken look positive but not sure if they are really just evaporation lines :-( one was first response and the other was 1 step. I was supposed to start my period on the 4th or 5th of February I am normally 27/28 days every cycle since it’s gotten back on track. I even tested this morning on a digital ept test and still saying not pregnant. I have an appointment with my doctor Thursday, I’m hoping and praying for good news.

  • jlynn02

    Big day tomorrow!! I took another test it’s positive. Let’s see what my hcg level is tomorrow. Hopefully its up!

  • jlynn02

    Well missed my period took another pregnancy test it was faintly positive, doctors sent me for blood work and it came back negative! So confused am I or not? I have a lot of symptoms and no period. Doctor really has me feeling insane, I mean I just know I am. What to do?

  • Joann

    I should have started the 5th or 6th of this month being that my cycles on average are 27/28 days long. They never go over 28 days and have never been more than a day later ever. I have a doctors appointment today but got a bfn on a first response last night and took a one step hpt this morning and not sure if its a faint positive or a evaporation line. I am trying my best not to stress out. I have heard stories of hpt just not working for some women or not detecting any hcg until well into the pregnancy. I used a first response and one step last week and got what looked like two light positives but not sure(again) if it was a faint line or evaporation line. confused :-/

  • Lillie

    Hello. I’m having same issue. My last period was Jan 9th. Went to Dr to check out 2 times. It showed up negative. They told me to wait until March 9th.and if I don’t get my period then come in again. If it’ll show negative again, I might need to do a blood test. I don’t know what is going on. Been stressing out lately so that might of been a big delay on my period. I need advice. Thank you.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Your body is adjusting to the changing hormones due to the pregnancy.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Until you get your period there is a chance that you are pregnant if you had unprotected sex during the month.

    Unfortunately, I can’t really guess based on the information you have provided. If the app says you are ovulating now, it isn’t likely that it would be implantation bleeding.

    Typically it doesn’t take two weeks after your period is due to get a positive pregnancy test. Wait a couple of days and try again.

    My last cycle was January 29th,i supposed to have got my cycle on Feb 20 but it didn’t come on dat date,i got my iud taken out of me Feb 10th could i be pregnant n my cycle is 4 days late now

    What type of IUD was it? If it was the copper t one, the delay in period could be related to pregnancy. If the iud had hormones connected with it, like the mirena, then your delay could be due to the removal of the hormones. Your body could take a while to regain it’s natural hormonal balance.

    i had the copper one dat last up to 10 years

  • Aisha V Smith

    i could still be pregnant right now cuz from what I’ve calculator from the 5 days i was ovulation n count 7 or 10 days from after i was ovulation

    Did your period actually start on the 29th? If so, and you expected your period on the 20th, that would be a short cycle of 22 days. Cycles are typically around 28 days long. If your dates are right, then you would have ovulated around February 5th. You would have still had your iud in at that time so you wouldn’t be pregnant.

    plus i had a implantation bleeding on Feb 19th

  • Aisha V Smith

    yes my last cycle was January 29th,it lasts for 5 days,i was ovulation around 10,11,12,13,14

    Did you take a pregnancy test?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    How do you know you ovulated around those dates. If it was an app, then that would mean you aren’t due for your period for 14 days after you ovulated which would be around February 28th, in which case, you aren’t late yet and a pregnancy test would not work yet.

  • Melanie25

    I usually have a 30-34 day cycle. My first day of my last period was January 15th for 5ish days. I ovulated on February 6th (I take ovulation tests) and I haven’t gotten my period yet and am on day 42 of this cycle. I have taken multiple tests and all so far have come back negative. I would be close to 5 weeks if pregnant I think if it was so. How long do I have to wait for a positive?
